Will the Last Tory MP Standing Down Turn Out the Lights?

Tony “Baldrick” Baldry, Tory MP for Banbury since 1983 and parliament’s most senior Freemason, has announced he is off:

“After careful thought over summer recess & discussions with my family, I have decided to stand down at the next General Election. It is an enormous privilege to represent the people of N.Oxon. I’m grateful for the friendship & support from constituents over so many years.”

Baldry has an 18,000 majority so it will be hard to spin it as a conspiracy, unlike with last night’s resignation of 2010 intake right-winger Chris Kelly, whose 3,800 majority was under threat in the UKIP target seat of Dudley South. Kelly says he’s not joining UKIP but wishes Carswell the best…

Presumably standing down to spend more time with Nadine Dorries’ daughter.

      Even the fucking BBC have had to admit:
      “There is nothing to suggest that they broke any law when they took their son from the hospital in Southampton on Thursday afternoon.”

      Last time I checked, Police only arrest people when they suspect them of, y’know, breaking a law.

      When did this change?

        Not available on NHS cos' it is TOO expensive and we understand your disappointment......... says:

        In fairness once the hospital told local plod that Doctors feared for the young lad’s life and he MUST be found within 24 hours before his battery on feeder packed up(although in fact it was still going strong 72 hours later) what else could the rozzers do ?? Ignore it and they would be accused of not caring and by doing something they are accused of over reacting…and the only way the French and Spanish Police would actually get off their areses and do anything remotely like trying to find the family they required a European Arrest Warrant issuing by UK Magistrate

            Establishing that the boy was as ok as he could be is one thing; having done so there scarcely seems any need to clap his parents in handcuffs and haul them off to court, and even if there was it could be done later.

            So much for all that stuff last week about not blaming the parents, just having the lad’s best interests at heart – his best interests now seem to consist of being deprived of his parents’ presence at his sick bed.

    I see our kids are going to be taught “coding” seems a two week teachers course makes you an expert on “coding”, is “coding” the new buzzword, what happened to programming in a computer language, what’s “coding” is that a language and what happens to all those 19,000 Indian “coders” that Broon brought in to screw up all the government’s IT systems, will the kids after a hard day’s “coding” get some exercise afterwards , we wouldn’t want walking blobs with bad circulation problems would we.

    Not before time; that bloke has become a caricature of a fat, smug Tory MP – and I’m a Tory – well not any longer – since Maastricht. Well done Carswell, a great constituency MP, who thinks for himself; his blog post and writings with Hannan are an inspiration compared to the turgid predictable remarks Baldry has put out in recent years.

    I have just been to Scotland, and Scottish people are considering voting no BECAUSE OF UKIP. They are scared of their extreme English nationalism. Please can you UKIP and right wing tories shut up for the next three weeks, so we the NO side can win. I want the No side to win. I do not want a civil war in Scotland or a war between Scotland and England.
    Message to UKIPERS and right wing tories keep stoom for the next 3 weeks to keep our country together. You lot are scaring the Scots into breaking up the union.
