David Amess, Conservative, Southend West

Possibly best known for somehow holding his Basildon seat in 1992 which foreshadowed the Conservative victory of that year.

Best known for "Cake", surely?

lol

Quote from: Hansard, 23 July 1996
Mr. Amess:
To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department what action the Government propose in respect of the import of "cake" to the United Kingdom.

Mr. Sackville:

We are not aware of any reports of misuse in the United Kingdom of the substance known as "cake" but the advisory council nevertheless has under review the question whether this and a number of similar substances should be brought within the scope of the 1971 Act.



Absolute classic.

I have become really, really stuck in Trafford. There's no wiggle room at all, I'm feeling a bit trapped by the constraints.

My latest attempts are:

Davyhulme and Salford Quays - over 78k
Altrincham and Urmston - over 78k

This leaves about 41k with Stretford, Sale and....well, it has to be Manchester's western bits.

Worsley - 73k

Salford, Eccles and Prestwich WAS looking alright, until I divvied off the southern bits for the Trafford seat, so now I've got Prestwich, Eccles and....er...random bits leftover.

Manchester North East - 73k (Bradford, Ancoats, Moston, Blakely....)
Manchester East - 73k (Gorton, Ardwick, Longsight, Burnage...)
Manchester West - 73k (Hulme, Moss Side, Whalley Range, Chorlton....)
Manchester South - 72k  (Baguely, Didsbury, Northenden....)

Norman Baker, Liberal Democrat, Lewes

F***ing nutter and general skeevy creep extraordinaire. I look forward to the day when he's accused of raping badgers.

That'll be the bloke who got to the bottom of almost every scandal or potential scandal Labour were involved with then, yes?

Baker is a prized asset, he deserves a knighthood.

He can be attracted to anything he likes for all I care, I'm more concerned about how he and his party are f-cking this country up.

Well, the Coalition are doing no such thing, but that's a separate issue.

I have blogged about this whole matter, follow the link in my sig Smiley

I'll let you know how I get on here, now I know that Prestwich is a 25k unit which shouldn't be split, I can only look at a Rest of Bury + Rochdale seat, bringing Prestwich with bits south....

When I eventually finish mine, the next step - typing up the proposals into a formal document. We better get reconition for this!

You'd have to include "Leith" in an Edinburgh seat name, they go mad if you don't....

Adam Afriyie, Conservative, Windsor

He seemed to be heading towards a decent career, but has fallen off the radar somewhat....

Well yes, Charlie does get like that some times.... You're right about the main issue, too. The manner in which the protest movement has been duped as much as rallied is staggering.

A superb article, this, full of his usual insight and humour. One of my favourite lines is below, but I urge everyone to read the whole thing


Quote
Perhaps spatial reality functions differently on the other side of the Atlantic, but here in London, something that is "two minutes' walk and round a corner" from something else isn't actually "in" the same place at all.

 I once had a poo in a pub about two minutes' walk from Buckingham Palace. I was not subsequently arrested and charged with crapping directly onto the Queen's pillow. That's how "distance" works in Britain. It's also how distance works in America, of course, but some people are currently pretending

http://www.guardian.co.uk/commentisfree/2010/aug/23/charlie-brooker-ground-zero-mosque

Yes, but we Brits don't matter with out socialistic ways to the Mosque protester crowd.

Mind you, your crazies are worse about these sorts of things.

Oh I'll grant you that, we have some fantastic crazies. Our talk show radio phone-ins may give yours a run for their money...

Do your talk-show hosts say the n-word repeatedly, too!?

One was sacked for calling someone a Nazi, if that's what you mean Wink Smiley

Following my Salford feedback (aka "change it, mate, seriously"), I've come up with what I think is a workable alternative.

I'm away tonight, so tomorrow will give it my full attention.
