Guido Delights Nigel Evans

Nigel Evans, according to well informed comment makers on this blog who are definitely not on his staff, is an excellent constituency MP. Here is what he told his local Lancashire Evening Post after it followed up Guido’s outing of him as an All-Party Groupie.

Mr Evans was “delighted” to have come to the attention of the blogger, who is well-known in the corridors of the House of Commons, but insists he is only a member of groups with which he has a genuine interest.

He said: “The Ribble Valley has some 75,000 people living in it and you would be amazed at the wide variety of experiences people have of different parts of the world. I bet there is someone who has visited the Ukraine who would be interested in my work.

“I do pay the odd visit to help the work of the groups overseas which obviously involves travelling, but I can assure Mr Fawkes and my constituents that should these visits impinge on my constituency work, I would give up the roles tomorrow.”

Ukraine? You’re kidding?

Quote of the Day

Paul Goodman as sagacious as ever on Arron’s entryism…

“… one must watch for former UKIP donors and a very few left-of-Party-centre MPs propping each other up, like drunks at the end of a pub crawl. It suits the former to claim the power to organise a programme of mass infiltration. It suits the latter to react by complaining about extremist entryism. The rest of us should keep a cool head.”
