Goldsworthy Campaigning on the Taxpayer

Former LibDem MP Julia ‘rocking chair’ Goldsworthy has been shortlisted in her old west country seat, which is selecting a candidate at the moment. The Treasury Special Adviser’s Twitter feed has suddenly remembered all sorts of local issues recently and she’s promising ‘a record of action, a promise of more’. That record included a ‘£999 television, £1,500 of furniture in House of Fraser, a £1,111 sofa bed and a £1,200 rocking chair’. According to Public Whip Julia Goldsworthy ‘voted moderately for a transparent Parliament.’ 

When she lost in 2010 to George Eustice, Julia actually got a taxpayer funded payrise as a £74,000pa SpAd –  a job she has not resigned from despite now seeking selection. It seems she’s trying to string out her dependency on the public teat for as long as she possibly can.

    Frau Merkel from Germany Calling says:

    With reference to Mr Cameron’s request for a renegotiation of the Lisbon Treaty…Mr Cameron can…how do you say in English…fuck off!

    By the way, most of his party prefer me as leader and most of your Labour Party prefer Mr Cameron to me.

    Proves that the ‘low salary’ is no deterrent. I’d be more impressed if she earned £74k doing a proper job in the private sector with no taint of public money.

      you say ‘she’s trying to string out her dependency on the public teet for as long as she possibly can’

      true but for how many hundreds of thousands of others is that true?

          We are proposing to eradicate our Senate i e comparable to your British House of Lords .

          obviously we won t succeed as too many entrenched vested interests going back to Caesar s time ….. but you Brits could try something similar ….

        I don’t think we would expect anyone to give up their job more than a year ahead of an election.

        In fact I would not expect them to hive up theoir job at all until and if they get elected.

    £74K Spad?

    I thought they’d be on 1/3 of that as they waited their ‘turn’ for a shot at the big time.

      Being selected for them must be a real bummer.

      Oops! Sorry. Don’t think I should have said it that way…

      Mr Nurdle says:

      £74K Spad, why do they employ civil servants who generally know what they are doing and then they employ (or should I say payed for from the public purse) spads who are reallly just MPs in waiting for a nice safe jobbie constituency and don’t really know all that much about the ministry in which they aare working.

        The LibDems need to be removed from British politics and influence as they are dangerous for British workers.
        Typically, the LibDems employ one of their own for £74,000 pa while ignoring 2,350,000 unemployed Britons and 25,000,000 unemployed EU citizens who would do the job for half that.

    Who lowered the age for bum sex? Hattie Harpic says:

    With so many Guardian reading teachers and clergy getting caught with their hand in the knicker drawer I’m not surprised lefties are obsessed with lowering the age of consent.

      jason wardrop from glasgow says:

      i love me some bumsex! and i just love my job! i teach vulnerable young teenagers about safe sex and the dangers of drugs. when not teaching you can find me in various gay clubs, usually dolled up like frank n furter.

      i am a full on member of common purpose and i do a mean impression of an irish accent. which came in handy a few years back as i was part of an operation led by american catholics that was attempting to stitch up thomas slab murphy… because said fellow (head of the prov i r a war council for many years) is vehemently anti-eu and thus quite obviously very against common purpose.

      feel free to search for me on google and get in touch!!! especially if you are a vulnerable teenage boy (or boys!). common purpose is great! we run the police in scotland and alex salmond is fucking useless.

      see you on the podium! x

    I hope the constituents do the right thing and block her from parliament.

        Dear Ms Hewitt,
        There is a right little strumpet in my class who I would love to bone.
        Could you advise me where I stand legally speaking.
        Mr Nobrot(Head of social studies)

        Ps I’m a member of the NUT and read the Guardian.

          Dear Pietricia,
          You seem to have kept very quiet. Is this on the advice of your husband, the Judge?
          Anyway, this won’t go away honey.
          tbh, I always thought that you were one of the slimier MP, all self righteous and pompous, but then, that is just my opinion.
          Love (tho’ I’m over 14 years old, so maybe not to your liking?),

    SNAFU says:

    Clegg is on LBC saying that we should give money to the Ukraine, one of the reasons being that the Ukraine is on our doorstep (geography lesson needed).
    He also says that a strong Ukraine affects our prosperity and security, how this affects us does not immediately spring to mind. As a political leader of the UK he really is not fit for purpose .

      If the EU gets any bigger fucking China will be on ‘our’ doorstep.

        What you have to realise is that a lot of the bloody Ukraine is owned and farmed by our European (and the UK is geographically part of Europe) conglomerates.

      Round and round we go says:

      Ukraine is fck all to do with us, let them sort themselves out, I thought the EU was was put together to help the European peace, but it seems the turds in charge are taking the EU to war with Russia, never again should Britain get involved with a European war, the British people always come out worse.

      The Ukraine is none of our business.

    Shame to infinity says:

    Time that bastard Tony Blair was brought back from wherever he is now to explain to the people of the United Kingdom, and most especially the people of Northern Ireland, to explain his dirty deal with Sinn Fein IRA to allow their murderers, at least 200 of them by the way, to walk the streets free from the threat of any prosecution on any matter whatsoever.
    Never mind Hyde Park, how many other atrocities are there never to be resolved on account of his amnesty.

    The Belfast Agreement would never have been passed in referendum if this was known.

    Yellow pussy wants more cream and avers she loves you too! says:

    Evidently, with another product of the UK’s entitlement culture, a seasoned gravy train guzzler, peculating scumbag set for ‘elevation’, it’s not too hard to fathom what Clegg and his coterie of filth deem of West country voters. Let us hope that, the Cornish electorate reciprocate and exhibit a mutualized loathing – through the ballot box.


  17. 49
    Eustace or Newton? says:

    Must be boundary changes when you say she lost to Eustace. As she was our MP and has now been replaced by Sarah Newton.

    Goldsworthy by the way was a useless MP as was the one before Sebastian Coe. Sarah Newton is definitely better than the previous two but has a horrible habit of using pro forma government whip soundbites in her personal correspondence to constituents.
