The Radnor by-election farce…


Today we are crowing about the wonderful Lib Dem resurgence in the Radnor by-election which is, basically, a load of bollocks. Why do I say this? Well, let’s look at the facts…

Firstly, in March 2019, Chris Davies the Conservative candidate pleaded guilty to two counts of fraud concerning Parliamentary expenses, and on 21 June was removed from office by a recall petition signed by 19% of the electorate in Radnor. So exactly which fucking genius in the Tory Party allowed him to stand again in the seat from which he was overwhelmingly ejected?

To answer that question, could it be that we have to look at the outgoing PM who never wanted to leave the EU in the first place, threw a General Election to wipe out her own majority and decided to reduce it further by deliberately allowing a disgraced candidate with absolutely no chance of winning to represent the party? Well, you well might think that. I couldn’t possibly comment…

Secondly, The Welsh Nats and the Greens decided not to field a candidate whilst the Brexit Party took votes away from the already stricken Tories. Davies faced the triple assault of a united Remain front, being deeply unwanted in the constituency, and the NFU mounting a concerned Project Fear in a rural community – albeit one that voted Leave in the 2016 referendum.

The bloke had no chance of winning and was set up by a Remain party pre-Bojo. A lamb to the slaughter if you’ll forgive the obvious rural Welsh pun.

So now we are faced with the gurning face of the hapless Swinson woman who, quite frankly I cannot wait to see taken down a peg or two in October – a woman so out of touch with reality she does well to find her own arse. What an absolute farce this has all been. You couldn’t make it up…

Never underestimate the ability of people to be stupid…

Who? Oh, Labour…


I dunno, I turn my back on this country for a couple of weeks and it all goes down the shitter!

The EU are playing silly buggers with Brexit, Prince Philip retires, May is getting out of her pram, and Labour make big gains in the local elections proving to everyone that they’re the only party that can lead this country to a glowing future.

Oh, hang on a minute! I seem to have got that last bit wrong…

As today progresses, it’s becoming increasing evident that the only party this country has any confidence in whatsoever is the Tories. Poor old delusional Timmy’s Lib Dem resurgence doesn’t seem to be happening at all – there’s a surprise – and UKIP’s internal squabblings and general lack of leadership since Farage’s departure have wiped the party off the political map. Let’s face it, now we’ve had the referendum, UKIP no longer has a purpose and the voters are deserting it in droves.

But back to Labour. They have a leader who has lost a vote of confidence by his own parliamentary party, a front bench of unknowns, a Marxist IRA sympathiser as shadow chancellor and a shadow home secretary who can’t even do basic maths. What could possibly go wrong? Electing Labour on June 8th would set this country back to the 1970’s, hand sovereignty to the unelected bureaucrats of Brussels, and bankrupt the nation overnight. The voters realised this yesterday and have deserted them in droves.

John McDonnell this week said that he would reverse the Tory cuts on death duties thus, at a stroke, screwing his own core voters. And then, just to add to that, he wants to increase taxes on the rich – who he defines as any family with an income over £72,000 per annum. This screws middle England and again hits his core vote.

Labour is an absolute fucking unelectable shambles. FFS they’ve even lost the seat that their founder, Keir Hardy, held to the Conservatives. If the Welsh Labour heartlands will vote Tory, then anyone will.

And Labour have lost control of Glasgow – a council they’ve held since time immemorial. To the SNP? No. They’ve lost it to the Tories. Heartland Labour has had it’s heart ripped out of it by Corbyn, McDonnell and Abbott.

Theresa May made a shrewd decision calling an election for June 8th. I predict a landslide and a ‘bloody difficult woman’ telling the EU bullies to go fuck themselves royally. Whatever you might think of her, she’s no mug and an accomplished politician. And the alternative is Farron, Corbyn and Sturgeon in some fudged up, unworkable and unholy triumvirate reminiscent of the three witches in MacBeth. “Hubble, bubble toil and trouble…

So are you going to turn out and vote Tory on June 8th? If not, then you must be seriously losing the plot…

Farronitis

I’ve noticed just lately that there seems to be new disease afflicting the political classes in this country. It manifests itself as delusional beliefs mixed with a sense of overwhelming self importance and egomania.

Its been around quite a lot this year. I first noticed signs of it in Jeremy Corbyn who seemed to believe that he was able to command the respect of the Parliamentary Labour Party just by being, well, Jeremy Corbyn.

Then it raised its ugly head again in George Osborne. Despite making a complete hash of Project Fear in the Referendum campaign, he honestly believes that he got it all right about Brexit and when it falls down around our ears, he will come riding to the rescue and be our greatest Prime Minister since Churchill.

But for the prime example of Farronitis we need to look no further than the man after whom it is named, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron. The man shows extreme symptoms of delutional behaviour crossed with an ego the size of China.

A couple of weeks ago, he was crowing about how the Lib Dem resurgence was proven when they unseated a sitting Tory MP in the Richmond by-election. So deluded was he that he couldn’t even grasp the fact that there was no Tory candidate to defeat. They didn’t field one. Oh dear…

Then it happened again at Sleaford. Tim was further trumpeting the great resurgence after his candidate finished in third place. His logic? We beat Labour into fourth place which proves that the people of Sleaford don’t support Brexit. Which is odd because the vast majority in Sleaford voted in favour of it and he was beaten by UKIP. Seriously deluded…

And then there’s that Article 50 vote last Wednesday. The Lib Dems only have 9 MPs including himself, Clegg and their new girl. That’s three guaranteed votes. In all five voted with him against the government motion. But what about the rest? In the end, three of Farron’s other eight MPs – Norman Lamb, Greg Mulholland and John Pugh – abstained. So much for commanding leadership.

Mr Mulholland said: “I am not prepared to give the impression that I do not accept the result of the referendum, or that I am seeking to block it. The motion clearly stated that that the result of the referendum must be respected, so voting against it could be taken as not doing so.” Blimey! An MP who’s remembered that he’s supposed to represent voters? Whatever next!?!

Yep! Farronitis : the delusional belief that you are important despite all the facts pointing to the contrary…

Zak’s sacked

Personally I'd have preferred the bloke in the white suit...

Personally I’d have preferred the bloke in the white suit…

Well, that was a monumental waste of time and tax payers’ money wasn’t it? I refer, of course, to yesterday’s Richmond Park bye-election…

Zac Goldsmith, not content with being beaten by Citizen Khan for mayor of London decided to take a stand over the expansion of Heathrow by resigning the Conservative whip and calling a bye-election where he stood as an independent. Now, fair enough – resign the whip, cross the floor and sit as an independent. You’ve made your point, why labour it (no pun intended). But no. Zac decides to be a plonker.

The Tories in the meantime play a blinder by not bothering to field a candidate against him – which backfires because the Limp Dumps win the seat. Enter the arch idiot Farron, crowing about how it’s a revival for his bunch of idiots because they’ve overturned a 23,000 Tory majority. But you haven’t, Tim me old son, because you can’t take votes away from a party that isn’t standing.

Our Zac was convinced that the good people of Richmond Park would support his principled stand and vote him back in but miscalculated because nobody in Richmond gives a toss about a third runway at Heathrow. As it happens the Limp Dump shares Zac’s view so the only choice was between two tossers, one of who was wasting their money by calling an unnecessary bye-election. Is it any wonder they voted him out?

So Mr Goldsmith is now consigned to the dustbin of political history, and good riddance. Personally, I think Alan ‘Howling Laud’ Hope would have been a better choice than either of them…
