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

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
