Michael Fabricant, Vice Chair of the Conservative Party was asked to resign today, refused, then was sacked. Most likely due to his calling for Maria Miller to resign on Twitter and vocal anti-HS2 views (a-la Justine Greening moving from the transport brief).

Fabricant always creeped me out. He looks like a shrivelled up Boris Johnson.

Then again it was probably a bad idea to appoint a self-described "maverick" to a leadership role. Maverick politicians are normally best suited to minor parties, the backbenches and crap reality TV. Watch as an unleashed Fabricant seeks the oxygen of media exposure to revenge himself on the party establishment.

Nigel Evans found not guilty, therefore no Ribble Valley by-election.

Will he be reinstated as Deputy Speaker?

Yeah, he's a.. character, shall we say. I do find him quite an amusing fellow, he hosted our University freshers event and went down a treat.

To the second question, unlikely.

Nigel Evans found not guilty, therefore no Ribble Valley by-election.

Not just that. The evidence against him like wet tissue. It should have never gone to court.

If the Guardian article on the case is accurate I'd have to agree.  What were the police and CPS doing?

I read the article too, seems Sarah Wollaston played a big role in getting the police involved. Never really been fond of her.

Also, Norman Tebbit calls for Martin McGuinness to be assassinated.

One is allowed to day dream, even of the death of your enemies.

Not the Christian thing to do, but I cant really blame him. If he was an active politician it would be another matter, but this is only human.

Well, it would be a rather just dessert for him I must say.

Post-Savile, they'll have it hard either way. It says something that of the celeb sex prosecutions recently that have returned verdicts, the only 'wins' for the CPS have been Stuart Hall (who pled guilty) and that fairly obscure singer.

Jeremy Browne (the very right wing Lib Dem MP for Taunton Deane and former minister) suggests his own party is pointless:

Quote
Every political party and every politician has to be able to answer the question: if you didn't exist why would it be necessary to invent you?

I'm not sure it would be necessary to invent an ill-defined moderating centrist party.

Euan Blair looking at Bootle apparently.

He's hoping to ride in on Cherie's "local roots". Roll Eyes

Some people are speculating it's false and than it was invented by the MP, who just lost its automatic reselection, in hope than the party members will choose to keep him, fearing Euan possibility.

Worth mentioning as it's not specified in the article; his wife was paralysed from the waist down and in the case of the Queen, the IRA killed her cousin.
