Hair Today Gone Tomorrow

Michael Fabricant becomes the fourth Tory in three weeks to leave their post unceremoniously, sacked as party vice chairman by Grant Shapps last night. He says he was given the chop after refusing to resign for tabling a wrecking amendment to the government’s HS2 bill and tweeting “about time” when Maria Miller was slotted. This may be his most telling of tweets:

Tory sources say they regret it came to this and insist the decision was due to HS2 and his “general lack of discipline on Twitter”. Rather than anything else. Guido has always enjoyed bumping into Fabbers on the terrace – his Twitter feed will no doubt be all the more interesting in the weeks and months ahead…

    He has a point on HS2 though: If built it would wreck Litchfield.

    So other than expressing the general public’s views on M!ller, he has also been sacked for providing proper representation for his own constituents.

    The wrecking amendment came only after a very long period of trying to negotiate what Osborne has to save the nice bits of his constituency being blighted with this latest EU white elephant idea.

    Run the HS2 on the old Great Central Railway – google map Rugby and look to the south and you will see the old line – you can follow it all the way to Lundan.

    Grunt Shapps is one of many in CCHQ who would have fitted in perfectly in Sir John French’s General Staff. Mr. Fabricant has risen inestimably in my opinion for opposing a High Speed train that won’t be allowed to be High Speed anymore due to the last 2 governments totally bolloxing up UK energy requirements. Anyone who’s employable, emigrate now – the end will not be long in coming

    A poster on another blog has pointed out yet more pressure to comply with yet another mind-boggling series of EU directives — violation of EU Council Directive 96/48/EC of July 23 1996 on the i(inter)operability of the trans-European high speed rail system.

    They’re coining it via MP shenanigans, and insisting the rest of us pay through the roof for vanity projects like this.

    No – if an MP is not there to represent their constituents, those constituents should have the right to recall the MP and if necessary elect a replacement.

    When a Party itself is so blatantly censuring MPs for representing their constituents views, that is a slightly different matter. One then should be asking for whom the Party itself is working.

    One more reason why M&S have shot themselves in the foot, being mired in political correctness, first it was condoning the humiliation of customers by muslim staff who didn’t approve of their purchases, and now by using the image of a woman who is blatantly ‘filling her boots’ on the memory of her dead son which I am sure will not go down too well especially with women, who are their biggest costumer base by far.

    C O (Ξ7p) says:

    That is why stated: ‘should have the right’

    Miller is an extreme example who would likely have been recalled years ago. This is a big weakness of Parliament, as is the odd expenses system – The problem there being that it has one way or another enabled wholesale fraud that can be leveraged in a very partisan way.

    The Parliament itself is not useless, but it certainly has a number of areas which require fixing that the Cameron Coalition have failed to address – likely because of resistance from the Lib Dems and interference from Europe.

    HS2 will run within 300m of my house but I support it because presently it’s easier, cheaper and faster to get to many European cities than to London.

    Whenever anyone north of Sheffield has to take a long hall flight we all travel via Schipol, Paris or Dubai because getting to Heathrow is prohibitive in terms of cost and time. I find this ridiculous!

    We need HS2 as it looks like an airport hub that serves both north and south will never be built. All the money is going to foreign carriers who don’t pay UK tax. Also business goes where the transport links are, presently in the northern UK they just aren’t good enough.

    So build a new LHR near Birmingham or build HS2 – those are your options. To be honest the UK needs both.

    Or, does one associate the transfer of power with the current government’s insistence on pressing ahead with the EU directive?

    The HS2 only stops at the city centre so for most people they will have to catch a train up down or across to Brum in the first place which will probably take longer than going direct to Heathrow anyway and cost much more.

    Best way to do Heathrow is car Hire, most have schemes were you hire each way, there are no parking fees, simply drop car and pick up at your convenience and travel at your convenience..forget the old fashioned train.

    “The Parliament itself is not useless, but it certainly has a number of areas which require fixing that the Cameron Coalition have failed to address – likely because of resistance from the Lib Dems and interference from Europe.”

    The Cameron apologists/Spads are at it again.

    Many of the Westminster shower are corrupt. They know it, we know it.

    MPs are among the top 3% in earning power, but they just can’t stop troughing.

    Cameron pledged a clean-up. That could, and should, have been his legacy.

    But he let Clegg, an obvious candidate for MP recall by constituents, override him.

    So, who do voters want in 2015? Labour’s Milliband, or another Cameron Labour Lite/LibDem coalition?

  113. 113
    C O (Ξ7p) says:

    On some issues it does, but that is only because the MPs are either being denied the ability to represent those views, or are not performing their role properly.

    NB: There is a difference between representation, resulting decisions and media publication. The European interference is the single biggest waste of Parliamentary time which contributes to local and national concerns of the UK electorate not being adequately heard.

    I don’t know much about Michael Fabricant but he is right about HS2 Dave’s “glory Project”, he might be playing the NIMBY card though, I think it is a very expensive project dreamed by Liebore on the back of a fag packet and taken up by Dynamic Dave. HS2 is the equivalent of Concord a good idea but very expensive to build, operate, few could afford to travel on it and carried few passengers compared to the big airliners. This country is small compared with Germany and France (plenty of open space) the only thing I can see for HS2 is the limited airport expansion available around London and limited air space.

    Ah so all this time everyone was calling on the Prime Minister to sack Maria Miller when all we had to do was ask Grant Shapps ( aka Michael Green ) and he could have sacked her in a jiffy .

    I was born here? You saying everyone born north of Sheffield should move south? (I would prefer to as I am surrounded by Labour voters who talk nonsense but that’s another issue)
    Apologies to help – predictive text zapped me.

    Sorry no I’m an average white UK male, who pays foreign airlines huge sums of money whenever I travel long haul. I just find it bizarre that us Northern scum have little choice but to travel to Ireland, Holland, France or the UAE as our own air hub isn’t practical by public transport.
    I know HS2 doesn’t go to London but it will get me to the South quickly. When facing a flight to Sydney total travel time is a factor. Why should foreign countries and airlines benefit when I would like to pay the tax and travel costs in the UK?

    If Norfolk’s any guide, it could be a Labour/UKIP coalition, which would be very entertaining.

    Woman’s Hour voted her one of the most powerful women in the country. I prefer such people to be subject to election, and find this rather sinister.

    Obviously the Nasty Party just doesn’t like free speech. If you don’t toe the line with the usual robotic and usually meaningless utterances then it’s the chop.

    Pathetic.

    I live in Lichfield and no it wouldn’t. Very few people would be affected (but they demand to have to right to be impacted and to be able to complain about it). I had to laugh – I shared one of the sound booths at the HS2 exhibition with a couple of antis – these booths illustrate the noise carried by HS2 at various distances from it (as experienced by HS1 and the proximity from European High Speed lines). At around 1000 metres, there is an imperceptible, gentle whoosh. You have to listen really hard to hear it. ‘DISGRACEFUL’ said the woman, shaking her head as we left. I couldn’t work out whether it was the lack of noise that was ‘disgraceful’…or the lost opportunity to moan.

    Outside the Guildhall where the DfT held that HS2 roadshow, two of the fuckers were holding up and anti HS2 banner and were trying to claim it was an EU plot. By the look of them they’d already had their post-mortems, so I doubt they’ll be around by the time construction gets under way.

    Lichfield has got a growing UKIP faction and that might be what Wiggy is worried about.

    It’s unsettling to know that Fabricant was sacked by Grant Shapps, or was it Michael Green or Sebastian Fox, even…..and he is the Tory party Chairman!

    Hi Norm

    Your views are not perchance tinged by the fact people in your proximity to HS 2 will have their homes purchased at FULL MARKET VALUE PLUS TEN PERCENT and get a relocation lump sum i to the bargain as announced yesterday by the Govt . — would it ??

    Got my first pube today.
    Still on the look out for my credibility.

    Now that we’re men
    We have facial hair
    Now that we’re men
    I changed my underwear
    Now that we’re men we have a manly flair
    We’ve got the stuff
    We’re tough enough to save the day

    BTW I think we’re totally fucked in 2015.

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.”
