Tories Implementing iDemocracy in Clacton

clacton-con-ads

There is a certain irony in the Tories holding an internet driven open primary in Clacton to select their candidate and UKIP HQ imposing Douglas Carswell, the prophet of iDemocracy, as their candidate. Carswell will be pleased his ideas are being taken up…

        Hi guys

        We’ve been given an early re-activation with this whole Carswell affair, quite a few of the lads thought we’d only get the ‘call up’ 6 months before the GE, but they’ve got some extra funding from somewhere and said, double time, continue the Scottish independence smears, but you also get to work on Carswell, now..

        Dig up the dirt on him they said, make up the dirt said Lynton..

        Trouble is whenever I speak to the team over a beer in the pub, we all like Carswell… we agree with him..

        Still we get paid for it, mortgage to pay and all that, and do this job well and we might get to be a spad one day…

          If the Tories were doing this as a serious government measure intended to give us proper democracy then we could have applauded.

          However we know that the real situation is that they’re embarrassed and so have resorted to another of their clever stunts which only serves to highlight how childish and bereft of ideas the Tories presently are. This is not a mature response it is spite dressed up as smart.

        Problem for us is that large chunks of the world, eg. Latin America, significant bits of Afr!ca, Ch!na, the ME and !ndia are aligned with Russia.

          • No one has poked the bear. The ‘alliance’ Russia has built took a bit of a hit when they downed MH17.

            Russia has not mentioned the bit about building a Russian empire or explained what ‘vassal state’ means to these folk.

            The West seems to have taken the position that Russia is fine to do some of this as it seems to desire restoration of the cold-war style multi-polar order.

            Big question for Europe: Is this to be bipolar, tri-polar or a higher order ? 3 would be perfect, but that does place us in O’rwell land, 2 may be preferable but is not good news for Europe.

        It’s not honourable. He joined UKIP because he realised he was in the only potential UKIP seat and might well lose it as a Conservative. Then he realised that UKIP had already selected a candidate, so that he would have to fight another, unwinnable seat for UKIP – Fermanagh and South Tyrone or something – at the next election. So, having done the dirty on the Conservative Party, he then played UKIP’s system to shaft the already-selected Roger Lord by using an obscure rule in their rulebook that said the National Executive could parachute a candidate in for a by-election, even if there was a candidate already. Devious jerk.

      If the current opinion polls are even vaguely accurate, Carswell could become a Polish speaking Jihadi convert married to a 12 year old Tutsi boy who kicks dogs and drags his 90 year old auntie around on a dog lead before he ran the risk of not whitewashing ALL other candidates. This by-election is like Muhammed Ali being matched against Larry Grayson.

    For all the rhetoric about IS it is becoming more and more necessary for them to be considered as evolving towards a Hezbollah structure – albeit without !ranian backing.

    Key questions:

    i) How autonomous is IS in reality ? They appear to have at least received training from several major powers, and have been indirectly armed also.

    ii) Can they take the next step as a government and start issuing passports ?

    The second point would help fix a lot of security problems in Europe and elsewhere. If IS were to start issuing such travel documents, States can then safely revoke citizenship without running the risk of making folk Stateless or contravening international law.

    Let them have their little spat and then disappear where the sun can’t shine.
    As for who the candidates are…….who cares. A defecting tory who slagged off UKIP and then stands for UKIP. Real trustworthy one thinks. And an official Tory who will offer the same policies as the UKIP. Bore draw.
