Leading Rebel Tory MPs Kick Back at UKIP Pact

Though Carswell, Bone, Jenkin and Rees Mogg broke cover last night to call for a UKIP pact, Tory high command seem pretty relaxed about it all. Grant Shapps even just took the mick out of Rees Mogg on live TV, and the fact it is four particularly suspect members of the usual suspects seems to have dampened the noise.

Interestingly, there has been an outbreak of loyalty amongst rebellious MPs, who have had their clashes with the leadership before. Previous troublemakers are pouring cold water on the pact idea. Philip Davies, a rebel with numerous causes, tells Guido:

“A national pact with UKIP is not going to happen so it is a pointless argument – that is probably one thing that Cameron and Farage do agree about! However, obviously I hope UKIP will stand aside for Better Off Out MPs (which may actually include some Lab ones like Kate Hoey) as they have in previous elections but that is a decision for them rather than us. Clearly though we need to focus on how we can win back Tories who have left us for UKIP.”

Senior insurgent Mark Pritchard adds:

“There is no need for a pact with UKIP. UKIP may have achieved a political tremor – but they are well short of the political earthquake they were predicting. There are still some good results for the Conservatives. A pact with UKIP would tie the Conservative Party’s hands when negotiating powers back from Europe – negotiations which need to be a realistic and achievable – rather than unrealistic” 

Even Michael Fabricant, who once called for a pact with UKIP, is now against it:

No.10 will feel rather chuffed if they can get the awkward squad to hold this line all the way until Monday. Whether they will feel that way in May 2015 is a different matter.

    They have got to look like a ship turning slowly or they will lose the 20% they have left!

    I don’t see why either UKIP or the Tories need a pact. Surely the next twelve months is for both of them to really establish their individual political identities and what they stand for. UKIP need to consolidate their gains if they can. And the Tories need to shake off the cloud of the coalition that’s hanging over them and establish themselves as an independent party again.

    If UKIP manage to get some MP’s into the HoP next year and I hope they do and the Tory’s get into no10 proper without a coalition UKIP MP’s are going to be far more likely to vote with Tories than with labour and the libdems so why do they need a pact? Just let them both be themselves.

    The Tory toffs are still in denial about UKIP.

    It will be interesting to see if Labour are as arrogant as the Tories now they too have lost large swathes of voters to UKIP. True some will move back at the GE but the GE will be decided by which of the two parties reacts best to the new climate of politics.

    It is not inconceivable that UKIP will make some pact with Labour. Say Labour not standing in many southern seats giving UKIP a chance to oust Tories, while in the midlands and north, UKIP not challenging Labour.

    There is now a clear market for a UKIP deal.

Every time he says he’s going to ‘renegotiate’ he fails to say what he want to renegotiate and in any event his potential negotiating partners have already said they will agree to no such process. Cameron is a liar who the public, indeed the whole of Europe, can’t believe. Nigel Farage should not trust him either.

    Labour are the ones who have suffered big-time! Loosing protest votes to a bunch of disgruntled right-wingers, whilst they are in OPPOSITION, in areas they should win easily! Despite the usual efforts on harvesting up postal votes.

They are in denial that UKIP take votes from Labour, which we know is a fact – all workers should vote UKIP for a stronger economy, less EU legislation.

    “A pact with UKIP would tie the Conservative Party’s hands when negotiating powers back from Europe – negotiations which need to be a realistic and achievable – rather than unrealistic”

    Two words….Realistic and Achievable.

    Now who’s being Unrealistic about what is ‘Achievable’…

    What is it about the words ” we have had enough of you ” that these people dont understand ?
    We arent going back next year to voting for all the snouts in troughs previous politicians and we hate the EU .
    We were lied to decades ago and they havent stopped lying since , remember it was just going to be a ” Common Market ” not the Germans in charge ( as they tried to do since 1914 onwards ) and control of every aspect of our lives and country.
    We beat them twice before and the third fight back has now started.

    If the Conservatives think the UKIP vote will evaporate in the General Election, they are wrong.

    People are sick of being hoodwinked.

    Voting UKIP is no longer ‘fringe’, and they’re winning stuff.

    The dinosaur parties have only themselves to blame.

  136. 136

    Not bugging or hugging UKIP. Having seen protest parties, doing very well over in Germany in the last 30 years. Sadly most of them lasted a year or three and then had arguments amongst themselves and disappeared up their own thingies!!!!!

    U nfortunately they cannot cross the floor as there is no floor to cross .

    You cannot cross to a faction /party who does not have at least one MP
    They could of course cross to one of those bastions off stability , tradition and statesmanship who ALREADY have ONE MP ….. the Greens or Respect !!!

    From a socially contributive viewpoint Radio Five Dead was already Dead before it became even more lifeless by moving to “Trade Hall ” Mancheste r . It should thus be put out of its misery snd physically shut down .

    I would even undertake to listen to two hours a week community service of BBC Three re runs and /or ditto London Live if BBC obliged .
    (i realize London Live /Dead is owned by Ledbeden but surely BBC could coerce a fellow left winger to acquiesce to his station taking an early bath … it will save him the money he will lose by keeping open until the numbers force him to close it in12 months )

    yeah nell …… and then in Feb 2015 they announce a non aggression pact ie winnable ukip seats not contested by tories and vice versa .

    If this gains the right power then a Con /Ukip coalition or at very least an
    ” outside government support ” understanding by ukip for a minority Con govt. will materialise after May 2015 .

    Whst about Dave Davis for PM .

    HAVE a putsch and get him back .
    Keep Nobsore as Chancer as no one else has a clue about finance and bring Moris Bonson in as Minister for Work and Pensions . Afriye at the Home Office . Fox as Foreign Sec .

    Okay not brilliant but more of a chance than current cadre .

    If Davies wants the half of the voluntary party who have left since 2007 back, defenestrate Cameron. Simples.

    Love to see this neil, but the bias in the electoral system won’t allow it. Too many safe labour seats with small populations.

    Had the Tories got their boundary changes through (not agreed by the vindictive libdems) it may have been a different matter

    It’s likely to be another hung parliament

    sovietsalami63 hers,
    West Yorkshire police ,Leeds city council and Ministry of Justice along with Local coucellors and MPs are all partners in crime .
    The council tax courts are liability hearings ,not courts at all theyre corporate and there are no signed contracts at all ,no bills of exchange and that’s criminal ,for any English stautes to become Law, they need your Personal consent in Writing ,they don’t have it so they are committing fraud ,perjury ,theft and extortion.all criminal offences etc etc etc.
    The Crown say they own each and every one of us ,as our parents registered our Birth(registering our Births actually means giving ownership of us to the crown)so the state think can do with us what it wants ,NO WAY it cannot as it still needs our Personal consent in Writing.
    I will not be entering my name on the Electoral rolls anymore as this also gives the state consent to do with me what it likes .
    our Local councellors and MPs know this and the Police who are corporate officers Know this as well.
    Making a payment to these corrupt so called courts is a contract giving your name to the Jp is also a contract ,but there is no court and no contract as there are no signatures.

    Lib Lab & Con Career politicians are only interested in retaining their careers and will say anything or do any deal with anyone to cling on to the gravy train- why would UKIP want to deal with any of them? By doing so they become part of the problem.

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.”
