Quote of the Day

Bury St Edmunds local Tory grandee Simon Pott calls on Ruffley to stand down

“I have known David for 17 years. He has been to my house and I have visited him and his then partner at home. I think he has been a good MP for the town, but I do not think it is possible for him to continue after this. He has spoken out against domestic violence in the past and then this happens.How can he go to a school or to a WI meeting after this? What will happen if he goes to a business meeting and asks for questions? Sooner or later someone will ask him about the incident.”

    The only way Ruffley can survive is by using his police caution to help speak out against domestic violence. It’s time for him to become a force for good, and show his contrition by working to help remove domestic violence from the lives of others.

    Maybe it’s time to see what the electorate of Bury St Edmunds think of all this ?

      Don’t think so? Most caught so far including most recent high profile cases were Catholic?

    Easy! Just tell the audience, “I’ve converted to Islam, so kicking the crap out of the missus is part of my culture, you racist Western Imperialist infidel pig-dogs!”

    Works a treat.

    “…In addition I asked my officials to consider a referral to another Government Department, such as the Attorney General’s Department, if that was appropriate. This was the normal procedure for handling material presented to the Home Secretary. I do not recall being contacted further about these matters by Home Office officials or by Mr Dickens or by anyone else.” 1 July 2014

    Sorry for going a little off topic, but I did want to remark on what might have happened to the ‘missing’ report – but the comments are closed. How fearless is that?

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
