Westminster’s Longest Serving Press Officer Departs

He’s had the hardest jobs in politics for a decade but now UKIP head of press Gawain Towler is heading back to Brussels. He will also stand for election in 2014. Putting out fires since most other spinners were still at school, Towler dealt with fruitcakes, loonies and Nigel Farage on a daily basis for years. Westminster will be darker without his signature red trousers, and farewell to the cravat/bowler hat/tweed look. Towler was of course the face of UKIP’s “For Him” clothing range that included the dressing gown above.

Guido hopes internal politics are not at play here.

Farage and co are vulnerable without him.

        If you got a proper degree, say law, then you should have paid off your degree within 10 years, and have another 40 of double or triple or quadruple the average wage. A TRUE investment.

        If you opted for the candle making degree or the carpet fitting MA you will still be not much worse off as you’ll never earn enough to be able to pay back your loan and it will be written off.

        But you will be a lot less likely to own a new Porsche unless the scratchcard come up trumps.

      I refer the Honorable Gentleman to the answer I gave a few moments ago…

      A bit odd that old fat boy Guido has chosen to ignore THE political story of the day, namely Mr Nigel Farage and his triumphant question time appearance last night. Is it because Guido is basically paid by the Tories and their shady backers?
      If it wasn’t for the Telegraph running the story of how brave Mr Farage stood up to the menopausal Ann@ S0ubry and her frankly insane rants about !mmigration. Even if I put a link to the story in this comment Guido pre-moderates it, this is the third time of trying to post this comment!

      Immigration, maybe more than any other issue, neatly illustrates the enormous gulf between politicians and the poor saps who vote for them. On last night’s Question Time, Tory minister Anna Soubry denounced Ukip’s Nigel Farage for having the gall to question the wisdom of open borders: “You do not talk facts,” Soubry told Farage. “You talk prejudice. That’s what you talk. You scaremonger and you put fear in people’s hearts.” What she misunderstands is that the fear was in the people’s hearts long before Ukip ever even mentioned immigration. Folks are worried about the consequences of having a porous border – and reasonably so.
      There is a illegitimate and a legitimate way to talk about immigration. The illegitimate path is the racist one, the terror that hordes of cheap plumbers are going to swamp Britain, steal our women, yada yada yada. The idea is offensive and irrational. The vast majority of immigrants are hardworking and law-abiding; many want to provide for their families back East and have no intention of making a permanent home here. These isles have absorbed wave after wave of immigration and only been enhanced by them – culturally and economically.
      But there are legitimate concerns about the impact of unrestricted immigration based upon the specific circumstances that we find ourselves in today. Consider the explosive combination of factors. 1) Much of Europe is in recession. 2) Britain’s economy is growing but wages are low, which privileges immigrants prepared to work for less rather than natives struggling with a rising cost of living. 3) Our universal welfare state is open to all and asks very few questions about who gets what. In short, the British people might still be living in a state of austerity but our meagre resources remain very attractive to newcomers, creating enormous competition over jobs and fresh strains on our services. It’s true that new migrants generate wealth, but that can be offset by what they take from the Treasury – a point that pro-immigration studies tend to hide but which my colleague, Tim Wigmore, has teased out in this excellent blog. And because numbers are so irregularly counted we can never have a true picture of the cost. The EU itself estimates there are around 600,000 economically inactive Europeans migrants in the UK right now. These people aren’t necessarily unemployed adults, but students, children, the sick or retirees are all still able to claim some sort of benefit.
      Beyond the economics, there’s the points of principle. Voters don’t understand why we agreed to open our borders to unrestrained EU immigration in the past decade, why those borders are so under-managed, or why the last Labour government actually went in search of immigrants to fill vacancies. In the 21st century, many feel that the power of the individual has been reduced by rogue banks, intrusive governments and faceless corporations that can kill entire industries over night. The sense of a loss of sovereignty adds to that sense of being alienated from your own country; that things are changing too rapidly, there’s no control over anything, that MPs act in the interests of anyone but their own constituents. The last point is vital. Members of Parliament are elected to represent the people of Leeds, Edinburgh or Cardiff – not Poland, Romania or Bulgaria. Democratic accountability is in flux.
      But all of this is purely academic if liberals won’t even allow us to have a conversation about immigration. Soubry’s attack on Farage is a classic example of shutting the debate down by crying “racist”. The narrative is (and it was invoked a lot on Question Time last night) that the Right starts by raising questions about border policing and ends by erecting a Third Reich – as if Nigel Farage were an Adolf Hitler in training. The proposition is obviously an insult to Farage but also an insult to the intelligence of the audience and to those voters with entirely justified fears about access to jobs, housing and NHS beds. If mainstream politicians aren’t allowed to discuss this in a mature manner then some people will turn to illegitimate, genuinely racist parties to make their voice heard. That’s not a threat – it’s a word of warning about an awful possibility that everyone on the rational Right desperately wants to avoid.

    2. Any foreign criminal/terrorist seeking to take UK to court will be deported. They may still take their case to court, but from outside of our borders.

    3. A standard response to all ECHR requests will be published on the front of all EU newspapers. Along the lines “Your call is important to us and we will deal with your request as soon as we have dealt with the economy, crime, education, defence, welfare, pensions, taxation and everything that is more important…”

    In future a standard letter with similar will be sent.

    Ditto – Brussels

    4. Finally a new ‘what is reasonable’ law will be introduced. This is in fact the old laws we had before New Labour.
    An example of ‘reasonable’ would be – should a burglar with previous convictions face a longer sentence .? ..Yes
    If a man trips on a paving stone should the council pay compensation – yes, but capped at actual, not theoretical losses incurred – ie – A scuffed shoe. Bruise on the shin. Feeling a bit of a charlie in public – £8.50 + £10 for hurt feelings.

    So … back to what I was pondering over an hour or so ago…

    I was pondering about Pensions. There’s a subject dear to every persons heart.

    If anything it is the MP’s and their fellow ilk who should be the last to have their pensions protected in gilded fashion above all others.

    It should be the public who come first in the pecking order – Why?

    Because it would make them concentrate on making sure that they get their money after we get ours.

    So why is the system slanted in their favour; surely it makes them complacent from the off as in “I’m first and I’m alright Jack”?

    It would further encourage them to make and even legislate under law that all the pension fund holders take damned good care of the funds, wouldn’t it Mr NAPF and Mr M. A. N. Y. Others?

    It makes better sense that the public come first and that the public servants are thus encouraged to strive for their piece of the cake from the leftovers.

        Maybe it is time the marines and other service personnel mounted a tiny tiny mutiny to make the point to the bleeding hearts and armchair warriors. Service wives need to mount a vociferous campaign against this sort of cretinousness.

          If you ever hear of a young man contemplating joining any of the armed services you must do all you can to dissuade him.
          The slimy politicians will betray him at the drop of a hat to kiss muslim arse in order to scrape up a few votes in Tower Hamlets or Bradford.
          Even worse in many respects are the senior officers, who ,since the Blair years
          have been transformed into politicised lickspittles only too concerned about their own careers to give a stuff about their men.
          And as for the treacherous Royal Military Police those scumbags are totally beneath contempt.

          Why we are losing? Soldiers cannot operate under the conditions set by human rights lawyers now, the aim is to tie the hands of our troops to the extent they become effectively useless moving targets for the enemy and too frightened of criminal charges to fight. Its all going according to plan, a common purpose to destroy the armed forces.

    JadedJean says:

    The fatal flaw (or subterfuge if one is a cynic) in Libertarian anarchism, as I see it, is that it has a core assumption that inequality is correctable through environmental (market) forces. This is usually translated into education and distribution of wealth according to principles of social justice. The problem, however, is that diversity is not plastic in this short-term sense, as it is biological, and all but immutable (although entire populations can slowly change biologically as Mao kept reminding people). That’s why ‘free market’ is just a euphemism for Natural Selection (Adam Smith was unaware of this force), and sadly, across our Liberal-Democracies (from here to Japan), it has just amounted to economic predation upon the weak. This, I suggest, is why the so-called wealth gap has opened up so much over the past four decades, whilst at the same time, ability gaps have not been closed, despite much effort.

    This is not making the case for 1920s style communism as in the post revolutionary USSR (which in my view was just transitional anarchism which replaced the status quo with another self-interested group). What came later at the end of the 20s and in the 1930s was much more like what Britain tried to establish after WWII, I suggest, and both were later brought down by anarchists (free-market advocates). To make any form of socialism work (and by that I mean the British not Marxist conception of socialism) one needs to put far more effort/work into sustaining a public sector, and to do that requires sound biological population management.

    Only China has gone any way towards effectively achieving that, and so, I suggest, we should be looking to China for a model. Sooner or later, I suspect, that will happen.

        In C.S. Lewis’s _Perelandra_, when the hero Ransom was confronted by the ‘Un-Man’ — Professor Weston possessed by the Devil — and the ‘Un-Man’ smiled at him, the smile was so horrible that Ransom fainted. When he recovered, ‘it came into his mind that in certain old philosophers and poets he had read that the mere sight of the devils was one of the greatest among the torments of Hell. It had seemed to him till now merely a quaint fancy. And yet (as he now saw) even the children know better: no child would have any difficulty in understanding that there might be a face the mere beholding of which was final calamity. The children, the poets, and the philosophers were right. As there is one Face above all worlds merely to see which is irrevocable joy, so at the bottom of all worlds that face is waiting whose sight alone is the misery from which none who beholds it can recover. And though there seemed to be, and indeed were, a thousand roads by which a man could walk through the world, there was not a single one which did not lead sooner or later either to the Beatific or the Miserific Vision.’
