Yeo Could Face Legal Challenge for Overt Campaigning

Despite party rules stating that he is not meant to be overtly campaigning, Tim Yeo is fighting hard for his political survival in Suffolk. The trougher even sent members Christmas cards for the first time in a decade and has become uncharacteristically active in his previously neglected seat. Neighbouring MP Dan Poulter is helping to boost support locally, “they’re golf buddies” notes another MP dryly.

If Yeo should win the crunch vote, a legal challenge has been prepared by local Tories desperate to be rid of him. In 1983 Yeo comfortably survived an attempt to oust him as the candidate after a company he chaired was investigated by the London Stock Exchange over a share scandal, this time it might be time to sell shares in Tim Yeo. Local party elders suggest the fall out, division, and defections will be greater if the great greedy green survives the vote.

    Time to Go Yeo.

    Trougher Tim is on the rim,

    Do everyone a favour & take a headfirst dive off one of your poxy bird killer windmills. You’ll be in no danger of getting electrocuted. :)

    Bear in mind it was an Is*aeli court in 1982 that declared Sharon was guilty of war crimes and recommended that he never holds public office again, which wasn’t a binding recommendation unfortunately. It wasn’t Palestinians, it wasn’t lefties, it was an Is*aeli court.

    Labour Left-wingers Diane Abbott, the MP for Hackney North and Stoke Newington, Dennis Skinner and Tony Benn each sat for portraits, at a cost to the public purse of £11,750, £2,180 and £2,000 respectively.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
