Elected as a councillor in Milton Keynes in 2012 in spite of having previously dressed in Nazi-style … Continue reading “Margaret Burke”

Nick Harrington

by General

Racist Tory councillor Nick Harrington tweeted: “You can keep your f***ing gypsies” after Ireland gave Britain ‘nul points’ in the 2017 Eurovision Song Contest. The bigot, magistrate and director of Ambay Software Ltd. then added: “Hard border coming folks!” but showed no remorse when contacted at his £400,000 home in Weston-under-Wetherley, near Leamington Spa, Warwickshire. … Continue reading “Nick Harrington”

Liberal with the smacks

by Matthew Steeples

Child beater speaks at Liberal Democrat conference   At the Liberal Democrat conference on Monday, Vince Cable complained that the Conservatives are “like UKIP without the beer” whilst Guido Fawkes shared pictures of delegates sleeping.

Barbara Driver

by Matthew Steeples

This Cheltenham Borough Council councillor likened housing development to a sex attack and said: “There is a saying and I am going to say it:  When rape is inevitable, lie back and enjoy it” during a council meeting in April 2014.

Brian Coleman

by Matthew Steeples

“Nice to see ya. Are you alright?” was this Independent Conservative’s answer when he was asked about his inappropriate behaviour outside a court. “He grabbed my arse” was the response of his victim.

Picture of the week: Doubly dumb

by Matthew Steeples

Cambridge County Council create Britain’s shortest set of double yellow lines   A Liberal Democrat councilor named Damien Tunnacliffe has to be the most idiotic person we’ve come across this week and an image of him beaming proudly with Britain’s shortest set of double yellow lines just had to be our picture of the week. … Continue reading “Picture of the week: Doubly dumb”

Lord Alton: What’s on your mantelpiece?

by Matthew Steeples

The Rt. Hon. Theresa May MP

by General

She called the Conservative Party the “Nasty Party” in a speech in 2002 and now Theresa May makes for a pretty nasty Prime Minister herself. Gaffe prone May failed to appeal to the police in May 2012 when they heckled her at the Police Federation conference and was too busy hosting a party with Lady … Continue reading “The Rt. Hon. Theresa May MP”

Shireen Ritchie, The Rt. Hon. The Baroness Ritchie (1945 – 2012)

by Matthew Steeples

The stepmother of Guy Ritchie was the “grande dame” of the Kensington & Chelsea Conservative Association. This tireless campaigner encouraged diversity within the Tory party and successfully thwarted Lady Meyer’s attempts to become the candidate for the constituency. For that alone she deserved her knighthood. May she rest in peace.

The Rt. Hon. The Lord Archer

by Matthew Steeples

Jeffrey’s invented a lot of tales but is rightly renowned for spinning them brilliantly. This former politician wrote some brilliant diaries whilst in prison and now is mostly likely to be found doing charitable deeds. His shepherd’s pie and Krug parties are still the stuff of legends.
