Afriyie Writes to All Tory Association Chairman


Guido hears that next month’s Conservative Renewal conference is stepping it up a notch. Last year Afriyie denied the conference was a Tory rebel conference. Intriguingly, despite being on best behaviour of late, Adam Afriyie has personally sent a letter to all constituency chairman urging them to attend for a special session on improving democracy in the party and garnering support amongst the grass roots. Whatever could that be about?

If anyone fancies leaking the letter, you know what to do.

    “All” shouldn’t be capitalised
    Steps are not measured in notches
    “personally sent” could be simply “sent”
    “Attend a special session”, not “attend for a special session”

    Also, Afriyie is being racist in implying black Britons with words like “grass” and “roots”

    as time goes by chukka and afriye are melding into the same person .

    ARE THEY the same person ?

    is one the doppelganger of the other in the same way saddam hussein allegedly had plastic surgery performed on several of his republican guard so they were identical to him and he could deploy them in public appearances where chances of assasination were high?

    if yes — who of the two is the patsy ??

    Good news spoiled by bad news says:

    We had good news this week when Abu Cocktada’s state scrounging brood dropped their application for leave to remain and fucked off to Jordan.

    But now a bleeding heart judge has given the wife of a terrorist a suspended jail sentence because she’s “vulnerable”. Moron. Has that c-unt Longford been reincarnated?

    The wife of a convicted terrorist has been given a one-year suspended jail sentence for failing to give police information about her husband. Ayan Hadi, 31, is married to Muslim convert Richard Dart, who was jailed in April for preparing terrorist acts. Hadi, from Acton, west London, failed to provide information that might have helped police arrest and prosecute him. The judge said justice could be “tempered with some mercy” in cases of “vulnerable” defendants. Passing sentence at the Old Bailey, Mr Justice Sweeney spared Hadi, who has a sixth-month-old child by Dart, an immediate prison term.

    That child should be given to foster parents or adopted. With that piece of shit for a mother, it’ll grow up to be a future suicide bomber. But of course, the social services won’t do shit. They won’t act to save a child being tortured, r*ped or murdered, like Baby P, Daniel Pelka, the victims of the muslim grooming gangs and Victoria Climbié, but they will be in there like a shot if it turns out a foster parent votes UKIP.

    Who’s willing to bet on whether it’s all going to result in something akin to:
    “Dave– really, we need to have a talk about a few things…”?

    Or possibly:
    “Dave– I wish there were better news for you out there, but, alas…”

    This, from a man who only has the best interests of the Party and of its members out there in the country at heart, who has always answered his party’s call, and never thought of thinking OF himself at all…

    “I’ve always loved you, Dave, you know that, right? But there IS such a thing as ‘tough love,’ y’know…”

    Left Cannes at 07:00 yesterday and drove 800km to Limoges. Beautiful girl at boulangerie at Le Caylar in denim hot pants showing off some spectacular legs. I looked at the wares but decided that, given the choice, I would eat her ravishing body first. Made do with a croque monsieur but she sweetly said goodbye when I left…

    Saw the tops of Norman Foster’s spectacular bridge from across the hills but left autoroute to conduct a reconnoitre of the Tarn valley and gorge which had thus far eluded me on my travels. The high spot for me is Ambialet where the river loops around a castle topped hill and ends up flowing in the opposite direction parallel to itself at a distance of no more than 100 metres.

    Drove up the bendy road to the castle followed by a blue British-registered convertible VW with some ten people in it, half of them standing! The surreal effect was similar to the scene in Blow-Up where the mime troupe goes to the tennis court and I get drawn into it rather like David Hemmings did. They let themselves into the castle and I asked them how many more people they could get into the car and we rationally discuss the possibility of adding another level to the vehicle to facilitate this.

    Then another very pretty young girl serves me at a little tourist cabin. She is taller than the one in the morning and has longer dark hair and cannot do enough to help me. I could never do enough to help her either…

    Life is very good.

    Turning up for two site visits and doing a few preliminary drawings most certainly does not make it “Norman Foster’s spectacular bridge”.

    I suspect you did not drive over the viaduc because then you would have come across something truly spectacular: the Toll Fees which are specially increased for the summer traffic!

    There is nothing like a private/public initiative and in this French Socialists and Eiffage Construction are truly world leaders.

    If the lady with the spectacular legs was working in the service station food section at Le Caylar then I believe I know her father who actually worked at height on that viaduc when it was being constructed.

    As you correctly report the sites are truly stunning.

    A minister in the Socialist Republic of Vietnam in the 1980s said rent controls there led to poor housing standards and did more damage to Hanoi than American bombs.
    In Venezuela, rent controls imposed in December 2012 have failed to combat rising inflation which hit 39.6 per cent in June.
    In New York, rent controls are blamed for reducing the city’s housing supply. Varying degrees of control over rent operated on and off in Britain from the First World War until the 1980s.
    Official figures show they contributed to the private rented sector shrinking from 55 per cent of households in 1939 to 8 per cent in the late 1980s.
    Jack Dromey and his wife Harriet Harman own at least two large homes, including one in Herne Hill, South London.

    Funny how the best Irish bars in Europe are always right behind Cathedrals. My all-time favourite is Seville: Flaherty’s, on Calle Alemanes. Best Guinness outside Ireland. However, maybe I’m biased because the day I visited, the outside temperature was 42C and the pint was chilled to perfection.

    No Housing Benefit – no need for rent controls.

    Actually, that might be a step too far, but a cap on housing benefit might kerb the upward spiral of private rents. Spaying sums of money to the tune of ‘whatever the market would support’ isn’t going to influence landlords when it comes to price-setting is it? The local authority wants to spray more money at me?? – don’t mind if they do; here… I’ll help them do it.

    Who do Labour think they are relying of private assets to be utilised for social housing??

    There is already an oil-well in Sussex, about five miles north of Chichester. It has been pumping about a thousand barrels a day for the past twenty years.

    Better not tell the protestors, though. Chichester folk are well hard.

    Fracking is a pretty bonkers idea, and really reflects the peak fossil fuel panic and future UK energy fragility for it to be even considered.

    The Church are Rentiers of old (probably invented it) and still retain the fracking, mineral exploitation rights to a lot of property they sold (including a lot of so called affordable housing).

    I doubt it myself as it is happening to me. However my theory is that if you treat people with respect they respond. If it is clear you fancy them but you are not threatening, then they respond too. If you are desperately lucky, then you get even more than this. Almost anything is possible and it does not always depend on money, good looks or connections. But push it too far and you are finished.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
