    Sunderland is a Labour ghetto thats why its shyte. says:

    I know a Tory member in Malton and he cannot stand McIntosh and she is extremely unpopular with both members and constituents alike,she thought she was safe,a lot of these Tory MPs think they have a job for life.The folk in her Association are unlike most Tory Assns,very outspoken and not afraid of CCCO.Even tributes fro Lansleu and Bercow in the HOC couldnt save her,Yeo then Gray just to remind those in the Shire seats that they are vulnerable.The fact that she say she will stand against the Tory candidate tells you all you need to know she will lose her deposit.

    It seems to be dogceatcdog in the Tory Party now

    Like their European policy, invented by Dave leading from behind

    One day in the EU, the next we want out

    At least John Major had a policy

    Ah yes the MEP for Essex North and Suffolk South 89-99, then MP for Vale of York 97-2010, who refused to stand down from her MEP job, thus spent two years troughing at both.
    After all Yorkshire, Essex, Brussels, Strasbourg are so convenient to each other.

    Well at least we can talk freely about it again for now.

    One cannot help wondering whether it is another case of a stratum of jury mongdom or whether it is in fact rather more finely balanced than that. In doing this, one has to pay heed to the likely area that the jury is drawn from and the curious state of political balance, more a reflection of quantities than qualities, in the country at large.

    What a shame we can’t shift a load of the inner city mongs in the UK to France and see how they do in a socialist shithole. Pigalle, Gare du Nord, Gare de l’Est etc. could do with some more bad hats, I have no doubt.

    I’ve met this lady, in 1996, when she was younger and better put together. She was at one time an MEP and an MP. She came to a business lunch with local SME types, I had a small business with 35 staff at the time. She was torn apart, politely as we are polite in Suffolk, mainly about the EU, the amount of regulation, the lack of pro business legislation, tax etc. Sad to see, she had no answer and just kept smiling. She seemed very pleasant, or fragrant in a Mrs Archer way, but not strong, not impressive or decisive. She is also not a spring chicken and I suspect is a very sight in Yorkshire. I have met Yeo also, and he does not live in his constituency and has shown very little interest since getting his job on the energy committee. There is a very big issue locally about wind turbines in the Stour Valley, straw fired and waste burning power stations and all sorts of green nonsense, and Tim has been busy with his business interests in green matters and shown no interest in the local feelings. What both these characters have in common is that they are past it, old, distracted, uninterested in local issues and really should find something else to do. Political parties need energy, and local people interested in what their constituencies want. One local MP, Gummer, works very hard locally and as a result is still popular despite Ipswich being a blue collar town. So this is not the Tories falling apart, just people being sensible and some MPs being wholly out of touch. Yeo is 70 for god’s sake, move over mate.

    I have no argument with what you say except to register the woeful addition that a huge proportion of our indigenous stock is actually no better.

    Living as I do in two European countries, I have been struck over the last decade about how many of the young people speak English. They are invariably helpful and can often address more complex and abstract situations in a tongue other than their own. My expectation now is that if I speak to someone, they will be able to respond in English. (I do try myself to speak the other languages myself, incidentally.)

    How many of our young people can speak another language to that degree of proficiency if it is not their language of birth or familial origin?

    Casual Observer 6 says:

    Am not sure of the reasons why the jury were not able to reach a decision – in particular whether it was as retarded as what happened in the Pryce trial. They may have felt with all the lurid revelations that this trial was more about the private affairs of the Huhnes, and not the possible criminal actions of Br!scoe.

    Might be best not to speak too freely though as that may compromise the retrial – whenever that may be.

  63. 63

    What is patronising in speaking the truth as I find it, quack! Does it not fit your preferred notion of sham-reality?

    Interesting… looks vaguely like a chart of the annual deficit. If you imagine the 4% line being a balanced budget Gordon Brown started deficit spending in 2002. It grew quickly, leveled out for a bit and then the shit hit the fan in 2008.

  67. 67

    My remarks were directed more at the jury, now discharged, than at the defendant.

    Agree with the reported evidence being lurid and rather sensationalist. But the case is seen as being a lot about character so that sort of thing will happen.

    Also agree that care still needs to be exercised but discussion of now revealed evidence will be taking place up and down the land.

    Not party to the trial, Mr Huhne’s already tarnished reputation has taken a further hit which will almost certainly bring offers of work from the State Broadcaster which is held hostage by neo-Marxists and the like.

    Casual Observer 6 says:

    The UK state broadcaster ? The Baby Banging Corporation ? They’re done – no longer relevant.

    One thing to consider with the lurid details that came out, excellent salacious details for a government controlled press, is that these only came out because the questions were asked of the defendant in court.

    Why was there such a questioning if not to paint Br!scoe as an innocent caught up in the web of sin which was the Huhne family.

    With Br!scoe’s knowledge of Pryce’s intmiate medical conditions, that would rather make the case for conspiracy much stronger.

    Some good details – and BW may have the run down on this – was a unanimous verdict required in this case ? If the final count was only a difference of two that could cast this inability to reach a decision in a whole different light.

Jumps on the back of others good work. Where she spends her time god only knows. Months with no replys to mails and questions. She never thought this would happen. Neither did David who i mailed re this joke of an MP. Well its come home to roost big time. And im glad!

    This is what happens when the incumbent MP ignores the local party and only turns up when he or she expects the local activists to go out leafleting, phoning, telling and canvassing and donating money to get them reelected.

    I have had dealings with this vile woman and I am so happy her chickens have come home to roost. I hope she pisses off back to Essex from whence she came.

    Anyone with a long memory will recall the time when she was originally adopted as the candidate for Vale of York in the mid 1990s. Two women and one man were chosen from 130 original candidates who were put through a vigorous selection process. Even though some of us were not keen on her pro EU credentials – she proved a brilliant speaker when the final three all addressed the membership of the local Conservative Association. However….the rot quickly set in. It was a rock solid seat with a flourishing bunch of branches – all fund raising, all meeting their financial quotas, all good at organising the Conservative vote. All they required as a candidate who embraced their hard work. Before long people felt they were being taken for granted and there were many rumblings. That said people fought hard in 1997 and she had a massive majority. The fact that she has declared she will stand as an independent following her de-selection, tells you all you need to know. Anne McIntosh is interested in Anne McIntosh. Yes, she works hard in London – but a good MP works with their local association and doesn’t alienate them. She wanted a ballot of the membershiop. She got her answer.

    Briscoe’s rump is nicely proportioned. Not really a “bootie” at all.

    I would guess that the split arose over whether what she did was really serious enough to justify the prison sentence she will probably get if convicted.

    Seems to me a clear “not worth trying again”

    “” How many of our young people can speak another language to that degree of proficiency if it is not their language of birth or familial origin? “”

    There is now a de facto world language. Most of us speak it fluently so have reduced need for foreign tongues.

    Surely a “tribute from Bercow” would get ANY Tory deselected?

    Is it the sort of seat whereby if she joins UKIP she can win. Is she UKIP inclined, or a Cameron leftie?

    Steve P says:

    Perhaps not UKIP for her then!

    I had the misfortune to have a meeting with her at one of her surgeries.
    She was rude and did not appear to be interested in what I had to say.
    As a former management consultant with a number of years working for the NHS I had some suggestions to make savings of approximately £5 million – she promised to email me back. This was 6 months ago and I am still awaiting her reply.!!
    I am sure lots of other people must have had similar experiences – that is why she is on her way out.

    Not going to help with this goal of 33% female Tories, is it, since the replacement seems to be male!!

    She is a Dissenter and prone to ignoring the Whips. The apparent replacement is an ex-Eaton, Deputy District Judge called Legard. Or that’s what the Harrogate paper reported. Unless Mrs MacIntosh splits the vote, it is a massively safe Seat.
    It is arguable that the Cameroons are fighting a rearguard action to preserve as many of their ilk as can be at the forthcoming slaughter by moving them to safe seats. Bad idea but a cracking way of alienating voters in safe seats!

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.”
