Tone made me do it - he's a bad influence said...

John Major at number 90 for "Top Right Wingers"?

F*** me.

But that's before the back-stiffening effects of the slump.

In 6 months times the mobs will be baying for him to be strung up.

YAY, Frank Field is one of the good guys!

I hear the Conservative trade union PPCs met this week a good step forward for the Party

we need to win over all sections of society

and local campaigns to save hospitals and post offices have involved local Conservative councillors (and others) and local trade union branches

Who is Nick Bourne or is he just known to anoraks?

Frank Field a right winger - jesus you have gone bonkers.

Next year should be interesting for the Tories.

All your buy to let developers, hedge fund fuckers, and city bastards will be commiting suicide. Who gonna fund your party next year.

Or is that too right wing for your blood. Live by the sword, die by it.

Do these idiot trolls - or as they should be called "Dolly's Dreamers" who have begun to infest your hallowed portal - really think that inane and puerile comments will have any influence on the views of regular readers and commenters?

If anything shows that the Labour Party is a busted flush then this latest attempt is it. No more spin, Gordon? I don't think so.

They must be desperate if they are playing this game.

Since when is Kenneth Clarke a "right" of anything ?

Guido Fawkes is under Ann Widdecombe.. and Nadine Dorries is on top of Frank Field.. Fnarr. Fnarr..

Iain Dale said...

Nick Bourne is leader of the Welsh Conservatives.

Frank Field is indeed on the right on a number of issues - welfare, Europe to name but two.

Alan Douglas - whilst I can understand where you're coming from - aren't you being a bit of a rascal? The democracy paper was brilliant - not as good as the Power Commission but they're both for wonks and in the real world will gather dust on my bookshelf - brilliant food for thought tho. Have a good day fella.

Nice to see Margaret Eaton an excellent former Council leader who has done hands on work running a Council in a difficult area of the North of England (Bradford, in case you didn't know) in the list. Like many people in the North delighted to see she is now the LGA Chairman representing real people out in the real world. Some of the names on the list are an insult to right wing activists who are actually working, for example, Ken Clarke. I am amazed that another excellent stalwart of the Tory Party doing real work in his constituency in the North of England, Philip Davies, is omitted from the list. He is a thousand times more usefull than the Euro buffoon Clarke ! Is he omitted because he is from the North of England or because he is diametrically opposed to Cameron. It is amazing that the two of them are, nominally, in the same party. Give me Davies any time.

Ivan the bloodyminded from Bradford
