The coming election will see the establishment pitted against the people – and the people will win

On 9th April 2019 I encountered a political first, which after 40 years of active campaigning is increasingly rare. That evening, while canvassing for support in Eccles, a small working-class village in the otherwise prosperous and leafy council ward I represent in Kent, I encountered loathing and hatred.At door after door (I think eleven consecutive properties), they left me in no doubt that they hated who I was and everything I stood for.I have encountered anger before, which of us has not? During the Poll Tax, the ERM debacle and MPs’ expenses they hated what we had done. But this was different. Now they hated “us” for who we were and what we represented. It didn’t matter whether you were a Thatcherite Brexiteer like me or a patrician elitist Remoaner, we were all as bad as each other. We were “them” and we were out to do them over. And what’s worse, every one of those angry, betrayed and hostile people was a former Conservative pledge.And who can blame them? We promised (and deliv…

Cameron’s Memoirs Reduced by 20% at Tory Conference

The signs were never good for David Cameron’s autobiography, following reports of slow pre-orders and backlash over publishing the memoirs at such a fractious political moment; however a sign – if one was needed – of how much he is struggling to flog the book can be seen at the Tory conference bookstall, where the book is currently reduced by 20%. For comparison, Thatcher’s books are selling very well at full price…Perhaps spurred on by this, May announced at the Henley Literary Festival today that she has no plans to write an autobiography.Writing a memoir is not something Theresa May is rushing to do. Did she keep diaries? “there honestly wasn’t time!” #TheresaMayHLFpic.twitter.com/TMmTEeBMlw— Henley Literary Fest (@HenleyLitFest) September 30, 2019This does presume May could actually find a publisher willing to take her on of course…The post Cameron’s Memoirs Reduced by 20% at Tory Conference appeared first on Guido Fawkes.

Only Five of the 21 Rebels Want to Return to Tory Fold

Only five of the 21 expelled Tory rebels still wish to return to the Conservative Party, according to a senior One Nation source. Namely, Amber Rudd, David Guake, Richard Benyon and Stephen and Philip Hammond. You couldn’t guess some of them want to return given how they’ve been behaving since losing the whip…Whilst it was obvious some of the cohort – such as Sam Gyimah who is now a Lib Dem, and Rory Stewart who plans on standing as an independent – had given up on rejoining to Tory Party’s loving embrace, it was still assumed the majority of independent remainers would look at regaining the whip once Brexit is sorted. It’s also believed that only Rory has any chance of keeping his seat if standing as an independent…In other wet Tory news, the Tory Reform Group held their one nation drinks reception yesterday, during which Justice Secretary Robert Buckland said multiple times “I am the law” and one member fainted. They’re truly dropping like flies…The post Only Five of the 21 Rebels W…

Tories Plan Short Election Manifesto

Despite reports of a rift between Boris and Crosby, it looks like Boris has accepted Crosby’s advice in at least one respect – the next Tory manifesto is set to be a short one. Despite Boris having a better track record of levity than brevity…Speaking at a Women2Win fringe event late last night, the PM said“And if you want any evidence – any further evidence – to our commitment to having a wonderful agenda not just for women but for the entire country, I can tell you that we […] already have a Conservative manifesto for the next election (which will be a short and concise… with no hostages to fortune) being drawn up by two particularly brilliant women”As Tim Shipman detailed in Fallout, Crosby implored May to release a very short manifesto that only covered Brexit, to ensure the election didn’t get derailed by other more contentious policies – the election guru even suggested May didn’t release a manifesto at all. Nick Timothy, however, overruled him, leading to the disastrous 2017 el…

Expelled Tory MP David Gauke has been spotted arriving at the Raddison Blu hotel just outside the Tory conference secure zone – despite having just voted against allowing a recess for the conference.
