In Guido’s Sun on Sunday column today, David Davis explains why he won’t go campaigning in Newark: Tory HQ are “cheeky little sh*ts”. Tory HQ hit back saying DD is a “selfish” loser. Don’t miss out on:

  • sun2Tory whip Greg Hands’ devious plan to stop the MPs who do make it to Newark from slipping off
  • Dougie Alexander gives up
  • Why the big gains for UKIP were a pain in the neck for one Farage spinner
  • Ed Davey’s awkward election day chicken run
  • David Dimbleby versus Huw Edwards: battle of the election coverage
  • Aidan Burley’s fiance resigns to make UKIP the official opposition in Cannock, what does this mean for the outgoing Tory MP?

          I used to work for the Tories oop north and the useless gimps at leadership really have no concern whatsoever about winning the next election – i’m almost inclined to pop my tin foil hat on and believe this was a crash & raid and leave it for some other chump to pick pick up the pieces. Ashcroft’s marginal poll underlines the fact that whilst the Tories did go for welfare reform, NHS recalibration, public sector reform etc – they totally forgot to go for Amazon, Google, Hedgies and oligarchs – even if they didn’t mean it the tactic would sensibly have been ‘we’re reforming the shit Labour left us but we’re also incredibly relaxed about hitting the plutocrats’ but no, not a dickie bird..silence…How the hell is a northern Tory meant to campaign on that? It can’t be done. Election over, ended, finished, fucked. Cheers George – he’s a strategic genuis dontcha know? My arse.

    There isn’t a day that goes by in which the BBC doesn’t do something shameful. This morning’s paper review had a headscarf from Bradford who apparently blogs on women’s rights (I’m willing to bet she doesn’t blog on FGM or child marriage). She highlighted yesterday’s attack on a J*wish community centre in Brussels. Was it to condemn the attack? Was it to comment on the wider issue of a rise in anti-semitism? Nope. She said “This got my attention because it’s not just anti-semitic hate crimes that are happening, it reminded me of Islamaphobia, like in Bradford where I’m from”. Neither presenter made any comment and let her ramble on.

    This isn’t the first time. In the week of September 11, the Question Time special had on a bunch of headscarves who whooped when a member of the audience said America deserved it, which caused the American on the panel to say he felt deeply hurt that some people were rejoicing over the deaths of 3000 Americans. And let’s not forget the BBC debate programme which caved in to muslim demands not to discuss homosexuality.

    The BBC are traitors. Under a different Tory leader, it should be abolished or privatised.

I’ll vote tory at the GE (even if it is for that prick Conor Burns) as I really don’t want a Labour government. However there are places in the north where the tories should probably come to an agreement to not split the UKIP vote in places where they have a chance of overturning Labour.

        I am a relatively late convert to UKIP from Tory on here. I was not thinking about the Euro elections so much as the fact that the Tory party I used to support was hardly in any way comparable with the current offering other than the name.

        But I had long been dissatisfied with the party and, having met people like Portillo at a local party meeting, I began to suspect that the party did not reflect my values. I had also met people like IDS (much better than he appeared when leader), Peter Bottomley whom I found to be engaging and intelligent (to any bore who starts on about rumours, he was present at the Heysel stadium disaster as well so presumably you will blame him for that too) and a number of others.

        The Tories had become so demoralised by three successive defeats that they felt they had to have a Blair-alike right at the time when Blair’s shine was coming off.

        I do not have anything like the level of interaction with Westminster than I did when in business but have still spoken to three MPs in the last year.

        From their reactions, I detected the groupthink referred to by JadedJean elsewhere on this page. I don’t always find myself in full agreement with him but I do here.

        So now my view is that I cannot support any party which indulges in this. It is no more than primitive tribalism.

        Preventing Labour from getting back into power, disastrous though that will certainly be, is no longer for me the primary objective in deciding who to vote for.

        How UKIP use the next 11 months will decide for me whether they keep my vote. Otherwise it might as well go to an honest party like the Raving Loonies.

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/environment/10853279/Key-to-the-modern-world-the-sinister-groupthink.html#source=refresh

    “Some time back, a reader drew my attention to the book in which, 40 years ago, a Yale professor of psychology, Irving Janis, analysed what, with a conscious nod to George Orwell, he called “groupthink”. It is a term we all casually use (which even he derived from another writer), but he identified eight symptoms of groupthink. One is the urge of its victims to insist that their view is held as a “consensus” by all morally right-thinking people. Another is their ruthless desire to suppress any evidence that might lead someone to question it. A third is their urge to stereotype and denigrate anyone who dares hold a dissenting view.”

    Full on Lib/Lab/Cons Tupperware Party Politics much in evidence today, all busily pointing the finger at each other declaring each other not fit to lead a herd of wildebeest and each suggesting the other should fall on their respective swords before they are trampled underneath (presumably in the rush to join UKIP).

    Noticeable of course that the most vulnerable on the list of three (the usual suspects) are shouting the loudest in the hope it won’t be any of them.

    Clearly it’s going to take a week or two for recent events to fully catch up with them…I hope its bloody.

    (Popcorn stock holding but under pressure)

    Blue Wildebeest
    The blue wildebeest is mostly active during the morning and the late afternoon, with the hottest hours of the day being spent in rest. These extremely agile and wary animals can run at speeds of up to 80 km/h (50 mph), waving their tails and tossing their heads. An analysis of the activity of blue wildebeest at the Serengeti National Park showed that the animals devoted over half of their total time to rest, 33% to grazing, 12% to moving about (mostly walking) and a little to social interactions. However, there were variations among different age and sex groups.
    The wildebeest usually rest close to others of their kind and move about in loose aggregations. Males form bachelor herds, and these can be distinguished from juvenile groups by the lower amount of activity and the spacing between the animals. Around 90% of the male calves join the bachelor herds before the next mating season. Bulls become territorial at the age of four or five years, and become very noisy (most notably in the western white-beared wildebeest) and active. The bulls tolerate being close to each other and a square kilometre of plain can accommodate 270 bulls. Most territories are of a temporary nature and fewer than a half of the male population hold permanent territories. In general, blue wildebeest rest in groups of a few to thousands at night, with a minimum distance of 1–2 m (3.3–6.6 ft) between individuals (though mothers and calves may remain in contact). They are a major prey item for lions, hyenas, and crocodiles.

    No offence intended…..however one can’t help feeling.
