    Election Post-Mortem 2 – ‘Ding Dong, The Broxtowe Witch…’ Adapt The Song To Celebrate! 


    I was surprised that Dominic Grieve, the renegade Remoaner erstwhile ‘Conservative,’ got so many votes as an Independent candidate in Beaconsfield –

    Conservative 56.1%
    Independent 29.0%
    Labour 9.9%
    Green 3.5%
    Independent 1.4%

    – it’s hard to trust a man who hardly opens his mouth when he speaks!

    But still we should be content to see him cast out.

    However, the cream on every patriotic Brits’ pre-Christmas Cake must surely have been the result in Broxtowe, where that frantic Fourth Reich fan, Shrill Soubry, was humiliated, despite the LibDems standing down in her favour…

    Tory  26,602

    Labour 21,271 .

    Anna Soubry (Independent Group for Change) 4,668 .

    Green 1,806

    English Democrats 432
    Independent, 321
    Militant Elvis 172.

    …only a few facile thousand giving her their votes, a miserable total which has launched her into the garbage bin of British political history.

    Handel’s Messiah is always popular at seasonal concerts, so…

    Haaaalleeeluuuuujah!

      Thank you so much, Ross. I wish she was literally up-ended into a rubbish bin.
      I shall sing this tomorrow once I get some time to sleep on the overall results.

    Tory Democracy? Kidding, Right? Tory Jackboot, More Like! 


    Meanwhile, the Conservative party chairman Brandon Lewis gave his backing to Grieve and said the association vote against him had no formal standing under party rules…

    https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2019/mar/30/grieve-accuses-ex-ukip-opponent-of-insurgency-after-confidence-vote-loss

    So much for the Conservative Party’s pretended interest in democracy.

    May’s flunkey Brandon Lewis MP makes it crystal clear!

    A properly constituted motion, ruled in order for debate, passed by a very clear majority…

    .

    =

    …by fully-paid-up members of Beaconsfield Conservative Association, has ‘NO STANDING’ if it upsets the arrogant Tory elite who think that they, not the rank-and-file, own the party.

    That’s irrefutable evidence of what we said earlier  this weekend.

    May wants Grieve and all the other collaborationist ‘Conservatives’ left unhindered by democratic action in their various constituencies, left in peace to focus their malevolent attentions on their war on British independence.Don’t Grieve For That Remainer Millionaire! 

     

    You should read that Guardian piece – the quote we use at the top of our page is the key, but the way their sycophant hacks who wrote it doff their humble caps to a Brexit-hating toff is hilarious – the pro-Grieve puke is deferentially described as…

    =

    ‘a distinguished man…’

    …who is then provided with a platform to insult the people who voted Grieve out as ‘loud-mouthed yobs!’

    But this is a serious matter, nonetheless. The Tory ruling clique are plainly not going to let party democracy prevail…

    Image result for dangerous democracy

    …if they can possibly prevail against the deselection revolt, they will.

    Months ago, I expressed my grave doubts about the efficacy of Leave.EU’s strategy of mobilising patriots in the constituencies of Tory ratbags to join the local Conservative Association.

    I’ve explained my scepticism already.

    Save Brexit By Infiltrating Tories? What Do YOU Think? 

    But I wished them well in their endeavour.

    Now we see that simply following constituency rules might be insufficient to purge the Europhiliacs.

    More good reasons to destroy the Conservative Party and bring on Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party?

      Exactly what would make a Guardian journo decide some man they met was ‘distinguished?’
      Was he wearing a tiara and an evening dress?

      Perfect, just what I would say if I had a blog but I am not that good with words and no need while you’re blastng away like an anti-aircraft gun.
      It is sheer arrogance.
      If the party does not belong to its members then what’s the point?
      If it does belong to its members, then Brandon Lewis should pipe down,

      You did warn us. The Tory Party has always been masters and serfs, a richh top tier with a crowd of mugs who pay subscriptions to be given the menial tasks.
      In my experience, the worst are the snobbish middle tier, late middle-aged, tweedy men and frumpy females.
      I had to work with them for years and while one or two did care about conservatism and had integrity, most were not even interested in politics.

        I don’t often reply to comments, happy to let them speak for themselves, Pamela, but your words struck a chord, and I remembered exactly the jerk-genre you speak of, basking in the reflected glory of having tea at the Commons, strutting about with visiting dignitaries.
        Insufferably self-important and, I always felt, driven by a need to make them feel their self-importance was not misplaced.

      Pamela and Ross – your experience matches mine.
      I knew a few of the local Tories where I used to live, not the neighbours who voted Tory but the local ‘dignitaries’ who walked the MP round the streets when an election was on. They took it in turns to be mayor or were on the county council, drove fancy cars and looked very uneasy in our modest little neighbourhood.
      That was the only time we ever saw them, then they would go back to their big Tudor mansions till the next time.
      They were useless, in the true meaning of that word, but they could always be seen at public events, self-satisfied looks on their faces.
      A lot of people laughed at them behind their backs.
