Éoin Clarke is an Idiot (Part 94)

According to the Office of National Statistics in a release yesterday in August 2013 UK unemployment decreased to 2.49 million and the unemployment rate dropped to 7.7%

Éoin Clarke is an idiot…

UPDATE: A number of readers in the comments are asking “Who is Éoin Clarke?”. He is an idiot.

Afriyie Two Times Tories

Adam Afriyie’s quest for world domination continues from strength to strength.

Guido hears that the future Tory leader has been taking tea-party soundings with various backbenchers.

These niceties are essential for any future Prime Minister building support amongst his party troops, yet you would have expected someone of Afriyie’s monumental standing and renowned competence to keep a list of who has been invited.

The Tory benches are awash with tales of various members being summoned for not one, but two, cuppas and a chat with their future leader, only to discover Adam is introducing himself again as if they had never met. Yes he did!

 

WATCH: Jo Swinson’s Finest Hour

By some distance. Afriyie’s face was a classic.

Tory MPs Humiliate Afriyie

Scoop from the Speccie: 140 of the 147 members of the 2010 intake Tory MPs have signed a letter telling Adam Afriyie to drop his EU amendment.

Dear Adam

Delivering a referendum on our membership of the EU is, as you have said, essential. We believe that the bill before the House provides in its current form the best opportunity to secure this outcome, in part because of its uncomplicated, unambiguous nature. This gives the Bill the best chance of progressing through the House.

So, whilst we recognise the sense of urgency reflected in your amendment, we feel that this will jeopardize the progress of legislation and the prospect of a referendum. Knowing that you value and respect the views of colleagues we hope and request that you withdraw support for the amendment tabled in your name.

Which is just about as awkward as it could get for someone who wants to be leader. Going on Question Time this evening yet another Team Afriyie media strategy success…

When Adam Afriyie Didn’t Care About a Referendum

Guess who abstained from the 2011 Tory EU rebellion that was calling for an EU Referendum? Someone who has made a lot of noise about the need for an EU referendum before the election and should not have been worrying about possible career progression under Cameron enough to vote against what he believes is a vital issue. Slow clap for Adam Afriyie.

Phillip Schofield Oblivious to Irony

This would be the same Phillip Schofield who cost ITV £125,000 in damages after smearing Lord McAlpine as a nonce…

Where’s Gordon?

An MP sitting in the chamber texts to confirm the former Prime Minister is not present for a debate on a major international crisis that could ultimately result in British troops being committed to military action.
