LibDems Urged to Head to Portsmouth for “Stimulating Activity”

An appealing invitation from Mike Hancock’s backyard. Local LibDems in Portsmouth are mobilising this weekend. “Stimulating activity” all round:

“Activists will gather from across the region for free food, invigorating campaigning and stimulating company. You can come for as much or as little of the day as you like. We want to make the day a great experience for you, with lots of stimulating activity that best uses your skills.”

Handycock’s troops preparing for a by-election?

    Grubby Tory Party says:

    Sir Anthony and Lady (Carole) Bamford: The billionaire chairman of JCB digger empire, which has donated £4million to the Conservative Party over the past decade. Since Mr Cameron became leader Sir Anthony has personally donated £71,250 with the company giving more than £1.74million.

    The Bamfords jet around between their 1,500-acre estate in Stow-on-the-Wold, a £20million beachside mansion in Barbados, a chateau in Provence, and a £30million Chelsea townhouse.

    Last month, in a report commissioned by Downing Street, Sir Anthony called on the Government to become champions of manufacturing and cut business taxes to support a renaissance in engineering.

    Michael and Dorothy Hintze: The 58-year-old former Australian army captain founded the £5billion hedge fund CQS, and has given and loaned several million to the party since 2005. The soldier turned banker has personally donated £1.24million since Mr Cameron became leader, with CQS adding another £33,000.

    The former Goldman Sachs executive, with a fortune estimated at around £700million, was at the centre of the Liam Fox scandal that cost the Defence Secretary his job. Father of four Mr Hintze came under scrutiny after giving more than £100,000 to Dr Fox’s former charity, the Atlantic Bridge, run by the politician’s friend and self-styled adviser, Adam Werritty.

    Murdoch and Elsa Maclennan: Chief executive of the publisher behind the Daily Telegraph, Mr Maclennan was not a personal donor but £23,925 has been donated via the Telegraph Media Group

    Two donors named as having been wined and dined – Sir Anthony Bamford and Lord Ashcroft – have headed Government policy reviews.
    The world’s biggest oil trader, Ian Taylor, who profited from the war in Libya, was revealed as a No 10 guest.
    Chancellor George Osborne and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said they too had entertained Tory and Lib Dem donors at official residences.
    Former Labour fundraiser Lord Levy admitted £250,000 would have bought dinner with Tony Blair, but in a private house.
    Mr Clegg demanded cross-party talks on party funding reform begin this week.
    Tory peer and lawyer Lord Gold was put in charge of an internal Conservative Party inquiry.
    Senior Tory MPs called for a new party chairman to take over from Mr Cameron’s former tennis partner Lord Feldman, who appointed Mr Cruddas

    ‘I was never chairman of the company, so far as I know’ — Old Bailey remark

    I heard a voice complain in Fenchurch Street,
    Very bitterly it grieved, saying:

    I wish I knew if I was chairman of this company,
    It would make a lot of difference at conferences:
    Gorgeous conferences we have, simply gorgeous,
    Finest in the City, I imagine.
    I am always in the top chair, but the boys will never let on if I’m chairman or not.

    Sometimes after a jolly fine conference I say: ‘Boys, that was a fine conference, let’s have another.’
    Then we have another, right on the spot.
    I often slip in a word, as if joking, such as ‘Looks to me as if I’m chairman of this company’, but nobody ever takes it up.
    Often when I’m signing things or shouting into my dictaphone (you ought to see my dictaphone) or maybe ringing through to main office and firing somebody, I wish one of the boys would just say: ‘Look at old Fishy – he’s chairman, you know.’
    Nobody ever does.

    For Heaven’s sake, why can’t they be frank with me one way or another?
    If they’d just say: ‘All right, old boy, you’re chairman’, I could do a lot of things I’ve always wanted to do.
    Such as swinging a big merger, Or correlating overhead with saturation-point, Or getting a whole lot of people, say twenty or thirty, on the mat at once and raking them with merciless eyes and saying:’ You’re out!’
    I’d get a chairman’s portion on the Southern Belle too.
    Dear Heaven, why can’t they tell me?

    — D. B. Wyndham Lewis

    Anyone is welcome to that too.

    £20.00 pays for all your food, a go in the Whirlpool and as much fun in the outdoor Swimming Pool as you like.

    And this is just the warm up act.

    Only the Lib Dems in Portsmouth guarantee you real fun and superb value for money ;)

Only back in May he was vilifying them, now he’s one of them. Typical of the way the Lib Dems are evolving into the orange Tories. Old Handycock’s constituency could be turning blue indeed!

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
