Tory MP Has Saddam and Gaddafi in His Office

As Guido revealed in his Sun on Sunday column, Gulf War veteran and Tory MP Adam Holloway has some memorable stories from his time in Libya and Iraq. The former Grenadier Guards officer tells Guido how he found himself in Gaddafi’s private living quarters as he wandered through the smoky underground tunnels of Tripoli in the days after the regime fell. Looking through the rubble, Holloway pocketed a picture of the Libyan leader that had survived the fighting. Restored, reframed and safely back in London, Gaddafi now joins a portrait of Saddam Hussein that Holloway picked up in the Iraqi dictator’s bomb-hit secret police headquarters in 2003.

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.”
