Tories Shown Their Real Colours

Recommended Posts

Tory MP Geoffrey Cox resigns from sleaze watchdog after failing to declare hundreds of thousands of pounds

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/politics/conservative/11940456/Tory-MP-Geoffrey-Cox-resigns-from-sleaze-watchdog-after-failing-to-declare-hundreds-of-thousands-of-pounds.html

According to the latest register of members' financial interests, Mr Cox received £325,000 on June 15 and 16 this year for 500 hours of work carried out between June 2014 and March 2015.

Under Commons rules external income needs to be registered within 28 days, but the sum was not declared to the authorities

You'd think you'd make sure you were without sin before casting those stones. Rosanna Cunningham failed to disclose a 6% shareholding in some left wing rag....she didn't resign. Nicolas Sturgeon failed to disclose a meeting with Rupert Murdoch during a trip paid for by taxpayers she hasn't resigned and dodgiest of all Fiona Hyslop failed to disclose all manner of personal interests in awarding huge grants and contracts to the company that runs T in the Park. She hasn't resigned either.

I am without sin.

As for your allegations, aren't they duty bound by a ministerial conduct. So if they haven't broken it they are cleared to continue.

What contract do you refer to that Fiona Hyslop had a personal interest in?

You forgot to mention the 6% shareholding that it mentioned which amounted to a £50 investment.

And this is exactly how Nazi Germany started

Yer joking, a whole £50.

Surly your missing a few 00's.

That's like 5 minutes pay to some.

The first item sums it up. The third is the full complaint.

I see Lord Ashcroft was taken seriously ill with organ failure following toxic shock a couple of weeks after his book ripped the pish out of Camoron.

Even Putin is more subtle than that!

I hope you aren't insinuating anything untoward without having evidence to back it up? That would be a very dangerous route for someone like you to take. :rolleyes:

Tony, you might be getting an imaginary letter from an imaginary lawyer. Watch yourself.

When the resident lying bigot purchased his latest girlfriend I believe he downloaded this by mistake.

Squirming, then laughing

Of course she laughed. She was on a comedy show with comedians. You'll no doubt have missed it in your blind fury but she also said that she wasn't happy about the tax credit cuts.

Personally I thought she came across extremely well. Absolutely befitting of her status as "Politician of the Year".and far more relaxed, more naturally funny and far more human than Nicola Sturgeon did in her talk show appearances in the US. She's a fantastic politician and it's to Scotland's eternal shame that the electorate here would much rather vote for the kind of untrained chimp like candidates like Mhairi Black and Marrion Fellows than elect people with the real talent, knowledge and ability to really deliver for the Scottish people.

Here's a slab of commonsense from Andrew Rawnsley (I normally consider him right-wing) from The Guardian (also right wing, nowadays...) about the increasing likelihood of Osborne finding a way to do an about turn on the proposed robbery of the poor.

Herr Dixon should remove his foot from the spade and step away from the hole...

No he shouldn't. He should start shoveling the dirt back in while they two are still down there. He won't, but he should.
