Yeo: “Too Close To Call”
Will He Walk Like an Egyptian Today?

The BBC won’t call it and local sources say this afternoon’s result for Tim Yeo’s de-selection is on a knife edge:

Meanwhile, the absentee MP spent the weekend in Cairo.

If Yeo survives Neo-Guido pays up a hundred quid and we spend it on drowning our sorrows, if Yeo goes Guido pays and we celebrate. Win win.

      Gordon Brown says:

      I bottled it. And now I have to spend the rest of my days in the knowledge that if I hadn’t bottled it in 2007, I’d have probably won with a small majority.

        By de-selections says:

        Labour staff, Labour Cabinet members and Labour MPs tolerated him for far too long a time. It should be in their DNA representing such people. Nasty lot.

        Couldn’t resist this one, I’ve not seen before, ehh it takes thee back.

        I bet neither of the Two Fokkers could do that, especially after a bit of a few water of lifes

      So H@rry is betting that Yeo stays and his boss is betting Yeo goes.

      My money is on the Office boy being right.

        Casual Observer 6 says:

        I rather think that N’eo may have a better handle on Lodge politics than Guido. Classic common sense vs. the corrupt and concealed truth.

        Still – there could be an upset. If they keep Y’eo then Suffolk is prime territory for UKIP and a lot of maybe unwanted negative press attention.

          How can Yeo work succesfully with a local executive who don’t want him?

          • M­a­­q­bo­­ul says:

            He’s managed it perfectly well thus far. From a golf course at the other end of the country.

          • Is the shit deep enough says:

            Who should replace him? I would go for Portillo providing he keeps to his political shows expressing his opinion. Best thing he ever did showing up the slurring from new labour and Ashdowns Lib Dem for what they are first and foremost.

            Around Bath average Lib Dems and Labour candidates is 22 years in 2015. One has already drop sighting stress of exams.

        I seriously hope that some of the fence-sitters will see that Yeo has gone golfing and strike him out!! Time to speak up for the ordinary people!

          The British Public says:

          If he isn’t deselected, it will show the Tories are still not capable of reforming themsleves.

    Anne McIntosh says:

    I feel his pain.

    I’m applying to join Labour. Ed Miliband has the right vision for a One Nation Britain faced with the cost of living crisis and bedroom tax and he will freeze energy prices and restore the 50p top tax rate.

      Well done, duckie. You can always hedge your bets like me and help dear Mr Duncan-Smith so that you can be on both sides of the fence. He really is a lovely man. I’d happily bend over backwards for him

      Every single fucking member of the Europe'an Commission says:

      It’s breathtaking we can get away with so much!

      Now, time for luncheon followed by a little bit on the side for the afternoon – these Romanian birds are damn hot, you know.

      R Hon DC says:

      Every country has it’s corruption, presumably including the UK, I think Geedes wants to start probing there, until the UK has got rid of ALL its corruption we can hardly point the finger of blame

    John Bull (British Bulldog) says:

    The Westminster village waits with bated breath for the outcome of a local candidate election.

    Meanwhile, our great Union sleepwalks towards the humiliating fiasco of national disintegration.

    Those beyond these shores who are ill-disposed towards us are licking their lips at the prospect of a Britain fragmented, confounded and in disarray.

    226 days and counting. Tick. Tock. Tick. Tock.

    Ask yourself – what are YOU doing to preserve our great United Kingdom?

    If Yeo is not de-selected, it will leave UKIP in there with a fighting chance!

      The more the working class see middle class lefties like Owen, Brigstock, Steel & Rufus Hound talking down to them from the bastion of leftism that is the BBC about what they “need to believe in” the more they will turn to Ukip – the only party to speak up for them.

        We could take down the Gill statue of Ariel at the BBC and put up one of Owen with his rippling pecs and pout, waving his little sickle and saving da werking classes.

      He’s not kidding. He means that the BBC will promote it for him and invite him

      Since when is it in the remit of the EU to send soldiers anywhere .
      Maybe we missed the vast panzer armies of Luxembourg and Greece with their Maltese allies using their military might to bring about justice and peace in the world when we weren’t looking

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
