All-Male Shortlist to Replace Tim Yeo in South Suffolk

Tonight sees South Suffolk Tories select a replacement for Tim Yeo from an unusual all male short list of 3 candidates. Local councillor James Cartlidge, former Deutsche Bank investment banker Jeremy Quin and Norfolk-raised barrister James Tumbridge are into the final 3 tonight after more than 100 people applied to be the Conservative candidate for South Suffolk at the next general election.

The Special General Meeting, for members only, is being held at ‘One’, Scrivener Drive, Ipswich, IP8 3SU tonight at 6.30 pm. Guido is betting that it will after the absentee Yeo experience go to either the local councillor James Cartlidge or the local boy – his family farm a small holding in the area – James Tumbridge.

    And neither is there anything in the non-job description about not putting one’s own interests, hobbies, pastimes and passions ahead of anything the proles want you to do. .

    I mean, if every local committee decided to boot out useless troughers who are only in it for themselves, then the likes of John Prescott, Douglass Hogg, Maggs Moron, Mickey Hand-on-cock, Cyrill Smith, Chris Huhne, Denis McShane, Jim Devine, Lord TrustyClot and so on and on, .. would never have got jobs.

    A highly disturbing precedent and not something I wish to see repeated elsewhere.

          A litle correction for EUPEUT – of your reply last night.

          i pointed you at the ‘song’ … and the the words / [here's a clue >] The CONTENT … of the lyrics ‘if you tolerate this … then your children will be next …”

          What you replied of was what you percieved of the manic street preachers’ whole persona – and you posited depressive – the Smiths can be said to be similar.

          However i did not point you to anything other than the ‘powerful words’ of that particular song.

          i am not sorry to state this – but you EUPEUT – ‘distracted off’ of the simple lyrics of that song onto what you wanted to.

          i hope you stand corrected – because it was the ‘content’ of the words of that song and nothing else which mattered.

          The ‘content’ is the all important piece – as i have been trying to get people on here to ‘think about’ – and not the distract to elsewhere.

          • Did you look up the M’orrisey joke which was featured on M’ary W’hitehouse experience ?

            That track you reference was about the Span!sh C!vil war – nothing to do with CSA or the other active measures which are being targeted at the UK at present.

            It is ironic you chose a track that M’orrisey was involved in as the artist in this case was a genuine victim of an active measures attack with the recent false allegations that he was abused whilst at school being circulated in the press. (Google it)

            He is currently litigating. In part it is because you appear to have been duped by that rather nasty campaign against the artist that your post was countered. M’orrisey is not to my taste, and that extends to his lyrics.

            If you want to pick a track about CSA to carp on about, try one from the wiki page:

            http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_songs_about_child_abuse

            Candyman by Siouxie and the Banshee’s is quite catchy and retro. ‘Oh Father’ is quite powerful, but more about physical / emotional abuse and dealing with the death of a mother.

            Be aware that they are not all categorized accurately on that page.

          My remark was made with some irony, using the Carlsberg device of adding ‘probably’ to the end of any disputable statement, which overcame the TDA provisions in the 70s with such dazzling effectiveness.

          It was a fantastic response to the earlier PC brigade tosh which decided the State should take responsibility for the ages old ‘buyer beware’ stuff we were taught from before we could even walk.

          There is a conspiracy theory going begging here, if anyone should want to pick it up and run. By overprotecting the consumer, the government managed to convince parents that it was no longer necessary to pass on the previous conventional wisdom. Accordingly, the next generation grew up to believe that the worlds of politics, civil service, justice, public health, education, unions, law and order, immigration, transport, communications, banking, commerce, press and broadcasting were all run by fluffy bunnies operating in the very best of the public good and were thus to be relied on totally.

          Hell, some 35% of the voting public still seem to think that we are run by fluffy bunnies! What brilliant propaganda of which even Goebbels could only dream.

          A beautiful day here, at last. Off for a swim and a good dinner with my Norwegian friends. Both teachers, he is also a published author with some 20 books to his credit. Both socialism haters, both anti-AGW theory, both of them demonstrate to us in the UK that, if people think, they can overcome the seemingly overwhelming pressure from the State to conform. As you will know, Norway is a socialist hell-hole which has used its oil wealth to build a desperately inefficient system, run by fluffy bunnies. When you have petrodollars running into your bank accounts faster than you can count them, any stupid system appears sustainable.

          Won’t be back until late, so will not be about much here today.

          Avoid the fluffy bunnies! Vote UKIP :-D

      Why are these people devaluing these children’s lives and making judgement on others. For a person to judge their own situation means they condemn all those suffering more.

      It is very hard to commit suicide. These are just cheats that have left it too long, as they did not have the bottle to do it themselves. Now they want others to help so they do not have to worry about the consequences of failing like all other really desperate people. Having someone there to make sure you die is just selfish.

      Suicide is because there is no point to life. The key is that these people are counted as a drain on society and can not see their value. That is the greatest failing of our nursing system. Isolate, control and assign a cost to peoples lives.
