Through The Keyhole: Simon Burns’ Shrine To Hillary

Veteran Tory MP Simon Burns has been participating in US presidential elections since 1972, when he campaigned against Nixon. Since 2008 he has been a massive Hillary Clinton fan:

“I am so convinced that Hillary Clinton is the best choice to be the next president of the US that I spent some of the Christmas Parliamentary recess trudging the snowy streets of New Hampshire campaigning for her.”

Indeed Burns is such a Hillary supporter that he even has a veritable shrine to Clinton in his house. These pictures of his stunning interior have been revealed as Burns has put his constituency home in Chelmsford up for sale:

As well as posters and pictures of Hillary lining the walls, Burns also keeps a special picture on the chest of drawers in one of the bedrooms:

Burns’ pad even features an antique, thunder-box style loo, surrounded by Spitting Image porcelain heads and framed copies of the Socialist Worker:

He’s also an Enoch fan:

From Her Majesty’s Super Dooper Loyal Torygraph this morning:

SIR – The Speaker of the House of Commons wants to modernise voting in elections through the introduction of online voting in 2020.With his support, the election of all the deputy speakers as well as most chairs and membership of select committees is now done by secret ballot. However, despite efforts to introduce a secret ballot for the re-election of the Commons Speaker, he has rejected and blocked this. This suggests that his modernising zeal does not extend to matters that might affect his self-interest.

Quote of the Day

The Guardian’s election editorial urges voters to back Labour with the compelling argument:

“The pain and hurt within the Jewish community, and the damage to Labour, are undeniable and shaming. Yet Labour remains indispensable to progressive politics.”
