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.

    A man deciding to think what’s best for himself and his family and vote with his feet? This can’t be allowed. I am issuing a European Arrest Warrant.

    We will immediately start our selection procedure to determine who will take Sir Tony’s place. Fraternal goodwill.

      They haven’t done anything illegal, mind.

        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

          Well, now they have more facts, they could apply to the court to have the EAW cancelled.

          Do you see any sign of them doing that?


          • Lord Duckhouse of Pondlife says:

            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.

    Gotta pull my kecks up says:

    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.

      I’ve been programming for 30+ years now, and I’m still learning.

      I’m not sure 2 weeks of noddy IT “taught” by the usual state numpties will have any effect.

      Why not teach them to read and write proper English first, instead of moronic textese ?

    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.

    It’s a question of priorities. We can put all our resources into hounding parents who are trying to save their son, but ethnic p dose are left to roam free.

    It would be sort of amusing if it were not true says:

    How did it get to this?

    Police and State inflict cruelty on child by chaining up his parents and locking him up in a foreign hospital while at the same time charging the parents who love him with cruelty?

      táxpáyér says:

      in order to get said child back to a country who’s treatment rationing system refuses to bother trying to treat him.

      I can only come to the conclusion that NHS apostasy is now a crime…

      The NHS is the worst treatment, funded in the worst way.

      It got to this pretty pass by

      ‘The ends justify the means’

      ‘We know best’

      ‘Never apologise, never explain’

      ‘Trust me, I’m a doctor’

      ‘The NHS is the envy of the world’

    Right wingers. Please listen

    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.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

The British media are Hunts says:

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
