Young Tory Sentenced for Threatening to Beat Up Yvette Cooper

Young Tory Activist and former council candidate, Joshua Spencer (25), has been sentenced to 9 weeks in prison for claiming to have paid some “crackheads” £100 to beat up Yvette Cooper. In a message on a dating website, Spencer wrote:

“We should have left no deal on the 29th before the whore Yvette got her hands on to it and voted to revoke democracy. She will pay. I’m already organising … to hurt her. Amazing what crackheads will do for £100. I’m going to get her beat up”

Spencer also told Cooper, “if you make peaceful revolution difficult you make a violent one inevitable.” 

Awkwardly for the Tories, Andrea Jenkyns MP provided a character statement for the young Tory, describing him as a “decent and honest person whose heart is in the right place and who always helps people in need”; although saying he had been “let down by the system” and needed help for his mental health problems. He was still allowed to stand as a Tory council candidate in 2019 after being arrested for the messages

UPDATE: Andrea gets in touch to emphasise she wrote the personal reference for James Spencer to “make absolutely sure that [his severe mental health] factors were taken into consideration as part of the trial”, going onto say “I do not condone in any way, having been a victim myself, any threat to MPs or any other member of the public.”

“I wish to express solidarity to Yvette, her staff and all my colleagues who, like me, have been threatened in these difficult past months of political tension.”

Andrea Jenkyns Gives ‘Stop Brexit Steve’ a Christmas Sock

Brexit Hero Andrea Jenkyns braved the rain and the Remainer rabble outside Parliament this afternoon to deliver a Christmas gift. Flanked by Sue who has been protesting in favour of Brexit outside Parliament for the last year, Andrea delivered Steve Bray a House of Commons sock. Now he’ll finally be able to heed the Prime Minister’s advice and put a sock in it…

Benn’s DExEU Committee Mutiny

Hilary Benn faced a point of order from Tory MP Craig Mackinlay during his DExEU committee’s questioning of Brexit Secretary Steve Barclay this morning. Mackinlay pointed out that Benn had hogged 20 minutes of questions, without giving the dozen other committee members any time to speak.

“I’m just wondering what we’re doing here. You’ve had the floor now for 20 minutes, I doubt there is any other member of this committee who will have the floor for 20 minutes during this discussion this morning, and I would welcome an opportunity for others to speak.”

Brexit Hero Andrea Jenkyns then chipped in calling in to question Benn’s suitability to chair the session at all.

“And you, with respect, are rather biased because you were pushing the Benn Act through, so I would personally like to see the Chair resign.”

All of which Benn promptly ignored and ploughed on with his questions…

Tory MPs Supporting Brexit Party, 1922 Rule Change Rumoured

Tory MP Lucy Allan is publicly recommending candidates for the rival Brexit Party. Andrea Jenkyns has also dropped hints that she too is supportive of the Brexit Party. Not much party discipline being shown…

Sources within the 1922 Committee suggest that there is a fair chance the executive will endorse a rule change tonight allowing a fresh challenge if a third of the parliamentary party indicates they will support it – effectively raising the threshold in terms of numbers of MPs required and removing the one challenge-a-year rule. Alternatively the 12 month challenge delay period could be reduced to six months – meaning the next leadership challenge would be on from June 3rd. There are no rules in politics…

There is also a likely National Convention meeting could take place at the end of May. If they voted to no confidence the PM whilst only symbolic it would be devastating.

Andrea Jenkyns in Car Crash

Morley and Outwood MP and Brexit heroine Andrea Jenkyns has been involved in a nasty car crash today, after someone pulled out of a side road and ran into her car. She informed her twitter followers that “Airbags came out and got a stinking headache. At least everyone okay though.” Guido is glad to hear Andrea (and everyone else) is okay, and wishes her head a quick recovery!
