Judgement Day for Wandsworth Tories

Wandsworth Conservatives were once a flagship campaigning force, whose success was emulated across the country. They were held up as a shining example of  what the Tories could do in local government. Fast forward five years and it stands on the brink; riddled with infighting and shamed by accusations of corruption and cover ups. The scandal is centred around the group’s agent at the last election Rob Morritt who was exposed for fraudulently cooking the books to hide more than £30,000 in missing money and a secret £25,000 Addison Lee bill. Blank cheques, dodgy expenses and lies – Morritt used every trick in the book.

When this was exposed internally in 2010 it was ignored and NDAs were drawn up to try make the issue go away, yet Guido exposed the truth. Three years later and Morritt has managed to get himself elected as a Putney councillor but tonight he finally faces losing the whip when the Tory council group meet to determine his fate. They have been shamed into action by an independent report that confirmed the allegations Guido made. The vote tonight requires a two thirds majority to remove the whip. Despite the council leader Ravi Govindia kicking the stool away from his former campaign manager, plus the evidence of two investigations piled up against Morritt, it’s expected to go to the wire. Bizarrely there are still those willing to defend him. It’s time to lance this boil.

You can see all of Guido’s stories on the Wandsworth cover up here.

    Iain Duncan Smith to stack all those shelves himsel

    THE Work and Pensions Secretary is to spend the next 4,570 nights stacking shelves at Poundland.

    Following a High Court decision that making benefit claimants work for free is unlawful, Duncan Smith is being held personally liable to fulfil contracts made to supply labour.

    His first shift began at Poundland in Newcastle-under-Lyme at 10pm yesterday evening, when Duncan Smith was handed a branded tabard and told to “guard it with his life”.

    He was then given his first official caution of the night for leaving the Povvos Suck tattoo on his upper arm exposed.

    Poundland employee Emma Bradford said: “He was caught curled up trying to sleep on a pallet of cat litter in the back, which is when the manager gave him his second caution.

    “Then Iain got put on pricing, and if anything he was even more useless. He wouldn’t stop asking how much everything was.”

    A tired-looking Duncan Smith told reporters: “It’s challenging but good breeding is on my side, giving me the height to reach even the top shelf on the notoriously demanding cereals aisle.

    “And I categorically deny any suggestion that I was given my third caution at 6am been getting caught smoking a hash pipe with a security guard out by the bins.”

        The next roudn of bail out money could well be the last.

        There is not much left to sell off, national asset wise, and discontinuation of further bail out monies and acceptance of loss on G’reek bonds could explain why the ‘government’ is continuing to reduce its staff, services and benefits.

        The additional taxes are going direct to a combination of international banks and bond holders. The sooner G’reece exits the Euro the better for G’reece. That will not happen until the G’reek military judge that the timing is right.

            I would say that the feeling is more akin to a belief, or sense.

            Have been digging around on this but signals seem to be very mixed out of Europe at present.

            Feeling is appropriate because M’erkel for sure desperately wants rid of the G’reek problem. Not of G’reece per se, G’reece she would just like to see operating a bit more like G’ermany and not the total cluster that it is.

            The problem with cutting G’reece loose is that this undermines the EU / Euro and would push G’reece into the arms of Russ!a which is a problem seeing as Russ!a has knocked all bets off with missile defense agreements and is now publicly deploying S-300 batteries along the Eastern borders. That is ignoring the Black Sea fleet cruising the Eastern Med at present.

            (Side note: U’kraine I believe may wind up seeing conflict if the current EU negotiations continue as they are)

            My thoughts are that G’ermany wished to see G’reece take a dose of bad medicine to correct what were real problems, and then gently rehabilitate back into the EU community.

            What has happened is G’reece has collapsed and now G’ermany finds this end of its empire is in danger of dragging the rest down with it.

            There is no hard economic solution, political solution or even philosophical solution for the current G’reek problems other than that G’reece exits the Euro and sorts its house out independently. That solutions are being tried denying the definite path is another reason for feeling rather than thought as at the high levels in B’erlin / B’russels there is no thought being exercised on this matter.

            I would say definitely that the EU will cut G’reece loose as soon as T’urkey has taken up membership.

            The geopolitical problems, particularly the threat posed by Russ!a would be neutralized then.

            Russ!a herself will likely be prepared to engage Europe directly and indirectly in order to prevent T’urkey and U’kraine joining the EU.

            Would expect perhaps some interruption in gas supply this winter, particularly if it is cold across Western Europe, and some increased incidents of terrorist activity, in particular involving the PKK / C’hechens within Western Europe / T’urkey, K’iev and A’zerbaijan.

            When the S300 systems have been deployed and are operational direct confrontation with NATO is perhaps inevitable.

            De-Americanization, or phenomena where some countries are breaking their economic and cultural ties to the US reflect declining US hegemonic power. However, the US still retains the balance of power in its favor, so has not the same set of problems to deal with as say the UK or G’ermany.

        It’s a bit like inviting some wanker into your house to stay. They seem nice at first and promise to wash up and hoover. Then it all starts going a bit south. Next thing they are in your fridge every five minutes eating the cheese and drinking your beers. Eventually they are shagging your wife, but you still don’t kick them out.

        Then after five years of them taking the piss you finally get up the nerve to kick them out, and then go straight out and find another wanker to invite to stay.

        It’s a cycle of madness that can ONLY be broken by voting UKIP.

      Be very careful of your classifications!

      “Dimbles” is an international socialist…as opposed to a national socialist. International socialists (think Ralph and Ed Miliband) tend not to like national socialists (think Hitler and Stalin). National socialists tend to put their indigenous populations first before all others (is this a crime?… aserious question btw).

      In summary…J*ws (i.e international socialists…aka cosmopolitans) don’t like non J*ws (i.e national socialists such as protestants, muslims, catholics etc and pretty much everyone else) as they see them as competitors for resources.

      J*ws enlist other minority groups (under the guise of equalitarianism, racism, feminism) to adopt their doctrines in order to subjugate the the minority outgroup to their philosophy.

      Politics is a very dirty game practiced by some.

          You should perhaps ask how many NSA staff are j’ish.

          You will be surprised with the answer, especially at the higher levels.

          More interesting is the question as to why G’ermany are trying to blame the NSA for the spying in their country.

          M’erkel has been caught out here. Deutsche Telecom would be the primary agent involved in these activities within G’ermany, and that is a state company. Some habits from the old east, when realized have been brought across, will annoy many.

          The data that the US got was shared by the G’ermans.

    When people like Ken Livingstone can “Get” themselves off of charges where others will be and have been put in prison – by employing shysters to word mangle the law as to ‘him not acting in an official capacity’ [The Ken Official Capacity get out]- then one has to wonder as to the pitifulness of the sell out goy boys ‘n gals.

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
