Bovvered I am not

Fib Dums Ginga Jimmy Balls and Watt (do you do?)
Marvellous the Liberal lobotomy support Group have actually tried to scramble together a scandal about Moi. This appeared in the Tribune....oh I `m 43.

ISLINGTON Tory Paul Newman should have known that jokes on the internet can backfire.
Mr Newman, 42, maintains he was referring to his colleagues in Mildmay when he contributed what he thought was a witty riposte on a blog by national Tory pundit Iain Dale.
However, Islington Lib Dems seized on the comments.
Mr Newman, who works in insurance and is vice-chairman of Islington North Tories, wrote: “I have to confess that the denizens of Mildmay are almost bestially stupid. There is not a lot you can do with them… they live from roadkill and sleep under newspaper.”
He was, he says, referring not to the residents of the ward, but to his own political colleagues and their inability to deliver documents on time.
“I was having a laugh about my colleagues on a political website and the Lib Dems are trying to make something of it,” he said. “You would have thought they would have better things to do trying to run the council.”
Mildmay Lib Dem councillor Rhodri Jamieson-Ball took a different view. “It does not surprise me that the Tories haven’t got any councillors in Islington if they treat voters with this sort of contempt,” he said.
“The people of Mildmay are offended by these comments and I call on Mr Newman to apologise to them immediately, and, if he doesn’t, the national Conservative Party should discipline him.”
Councillor Lucy Watt, Lib Dem deputy leader of the council, added: “The Tory Party claim they are no longer the nasty party, but clearly nothing has changed. Senior members like Mr Newman are still making offensive remarks like this.
“The last time we heard from him he was arguing that Islington has too much council housing. Now he is insulting ordinary residents.”

AS Vice Chaiman naturally I owe it to my gold plated ocean going sense of dignity to respond. I started but went on a bit so this will not be going in. Still ..something nassty will be waiting for them

When odious Simon Hughes ran as the ,“Straight choice”, in a Bermondsey By-election beating gay hero Peter Tatchell I learnt a lesson . You can tell when a Liberal is lying because their lips are moving. I am therefore “shocked “only in the best Casablanca sense to find them foaming with faux moral outrage about my supposedly insulting description of Mildmay residents ,.Let me immediately say that I would be happy to clutch each and every Mildmay voter to my bosom in admiration and respect

The risibly trivial “Road -kill-gate “ affair’s genesis was on Iain Dales Blog the most celebrated Conservative web forum which I contribute to regularly So do friends of mine who were inadvertently responsible for the Conservative Party’s failure to field a candidate in the said ward. My remarks were unmistakably humorous and intended only to tease the Mildmay team in the knock about context they were made. I subsequently removed any scintilla of doubt on Mark Pack`s achingly tedious Liberal Blog on which he originally posted this dreary tittle tattle, prior to the Tribunes coverage .

I should demand that the Liberals offer a personal apology to me for their deceitful slurs on my reputation and by implication the Conservative Party in Islington. Actually ‘I am not bovvered ’, and rather I relish the prospect of continuing childishness. I suggest Ms. Watt sticks her tongue out at me when no-one is looking while Jameieson Balls flicks paper pellets at my ears . Both will be adding the lustre and dignity of the democratic process more than they usually do.
La Watt is correct about my views on excessive Council housing though.. With 50% of the Borough in Social housing and 70% of the inhabitants on benefits the social mix of Islington is dangerously skewed towards benefit dependency with its attendant evils of violent, crime drugs abuse , educational under achievement and family breakdown . With a shooting a week and some of the worst schools in the country it is no surprise that Emily Thorn berry ,Labour hypocrite of this Parish, agrees. She got her children into a nice school in Potters Bar .James Kempton also agrees having said that he “ Had no intention of letting Islington become 21st century slum”… under pressure fro Red Ken`s GLA. He has since rolled over like a soppy Spaniel and about 11000 more units are to be crammed into London’s most over crowded borough.
James Kempton told me at a meeting of the Islington Association that we needed to replace the stock lost to Leaseholders. Of course the whole point of right to buy was to encourage a greater proportion of ownership .This policy was working. Leaseholders have been a magnificent asset to the Borough and both of the real Political Parties are considering plans to return to the RTB agenda. Islington’s 11000 heroic leaseholders however ,are being treated shamefully. Already often suffering wicked levels of taxation they are being asked to pay Service Charges of up to £50,000 out of doctrinal spite. The good news is they will be given assistance in releasing equity . How kind , the mugger escorts you to the cash point to get the rest of your savings .
I have been working with Leaseholder representatives and next week we have a meeting with Michael Gove the Conservative shadow Housing minister. I do this for no reward of any kind but because I care about ordinary Islington people and try to help. With a family and clients to look after as well , it is staggering how little time one has for trawling other peoples net sites for anything to fatuously misrepresent in the Local Press.
No little Rhodri, I will not be disciplined . I believe and trust our beloved President Boris Johnson will find it in his heart to forgive any naivety I may have shown

All good fun . Any good example of Liberal lies. This could run and run ?


tory boys never grow up said...

Of all the things they could attack your politics for - and they pick this??!!. But then I suppose when their political thinking has no ideological underpinning all they can result to is tittle tattle - the only constant Lib Dem philosophy I have ever seen is one of saying whatever they think the immediate electorate want to hear.

Anonymous said...

You could set a harder test by asking if anyone has any instances of the Lib Dems telling the truth!

try this for starters

Electro-Kevin said...

I thought your 'roadkill' comment was very funny, Mr N. What your colleagues made of it though ...
(He he !)

Welshcakes Limoncello said...

Mr N, some people just have no sense of humour! Let us know when all those people come round to be clutched to your bosom.

Newmania said...

Hallo T Boys
"their political thinking has no ideological underpinning all they can result to is tittle tattle - "

I think that is absolutely right . At least you are good and wrong

Newmania said...

Thanks Men Sana ..I must say I am one of those Conservatives who would rather have a beer with Old Labour than a Liberal .

Newmania said...

Welsh cakes, My bosom wqas meant in the antiquated sense. Sadly I`ve put on some weight recently and I am also developing Moobs( man boobs).

Must go for a run

Newmania said...

Hi EK you blog running yet ?

lilith said...

Oh dear. And they are the moral and caring party. Oh dear oh dear. Disgusted by that domain name stealing in Bedford. Yeuch.

My local MP is lib dem and replies to letters and attends parliament regularly. Although he has a beard I quite like him. Dirty tricks all round!

Anonymous said...

NM I couldn't agree more strongly.

You can discuss life with Old Labour and know you will disagree because you have principled differences, but you can do it with a smile over a pint.

If you have the same discussion with NuLab or Lib Dems the wriggling and squirming and total lack of principle or intellectual rigour makes you want to resort to physical violence

Whats wrong with roadkill? I am only asking???

Thank God they haven't found your posts on Ms Smack???!!!! I never believed it any way but it could look bad!!!!

Electro-Kevin said...

Bloody blog.

I've only got it so my name comes up blue like everyone else and so I can contribute on sites that don't allow anonymous.

Plus there's a few wild 'facts' about my persona in the profile.

Praguetory said...

I shall be eating roadkill and sleeping under a newspaper with Mr Croydonian next week. Yours beastially.

Anonymous said...

On the official response noted in this post I'd just like to say:


What's wrong with roadkill anyway? Come back to my caravan where I've got a lovely Siamese stew on the boil (those things are quick - had to mount the pavement to get that one. I love exotic cuisine don't you?)

Newmania said...

makes you want to resort to physical violence

Good Lord Men Sana surely you have enough business already

Newmania said...

Yours beastially.

I nhave herad the stories , we`ll keep that quiet from Mrs P shall we

Newmania said...

Lillith I din`t feel that a beard is ever forgiveable , perhaps there is a case for charity some months into an arctic expedition but I doubt it.
Its just too " Give Quiche a chance"

Newmania said...

EK you are a wild person so that si as it shouild be ...I `ll have a look

( and at the others here...Lillith backfrom hols so I hope to see what she has been up to)

James Higham said...

You stick it to them, Paul! then go over to CityUnslicker and deal with the next issue. I've covered it over at my place. I don't want you to think me cruel or anything.

I love it.

Tyanks James and P ..I always follow the slicker

Frobisher said...

"give Quiche a chance" - I like that a lot!

Never explain Never apologise Mr N - your friends don't need it and your enemies won't listen.

Tell them up to go fuck em selves!

Anonymous said...

One thing for sure you have given me food for a good post on my blog.

You do made me laugh

Newmania said...

Its all good fun isn`t it Suz !Goodness you do keep your eyes peeled don`t you

Anonymous said...

It is exactly this kind of backstabbing that has turned off voters. I bet your residents are delighted that they have a hard-working chap like you on their side.

And your comemnt about Old Labour is very true. I've heard it said that more Old Labour MPs hate Tony Blair than Tories.

Praguetory, what a week you have to look forward to, don't go and lead Newmania astray.

And lilith is very easily pleased, I think.

Do keep making us laugh!!!

lilith said...

Ellee, yes, I can be easily pleased! By integrity and a sense of service to constituents. A rare quality in politics these days.

Though Newmania might well be right that the beard gives him away. "Beards and Moustaches = Nonces and Grasses" a Thatcher-loving armed robber from Glasgow once told me.

At least my local MP is bothering to OPPOSE the government. It makes a fucking change. Shame about his Party though.

Have you ever thought of growinga beard Mr N?

Newmania said...

I have thought of growing wings Mutley , for commuting . A beard ; no.

Do the flats disappear when they are sold, or do socialists not understand arithmetic?

Newmania said...

Oh they do Ed thats why they need some more . They understamnd electoral arithmetic all to well

Ed said...

I must be living in the Emperor's New Clothes then.

I'm all for building new homes but there must be a better way than creating yet more sink estates. Not long ago Ruth Kelly told us the "we" have learnt the lessons... Maybe Islington needs to be informed.

Newmania said...

Islingnton has no say it is Government Policy under amendments to the Town and Country Planning Act enforced via Ken and the GLA.

Unknown said...

I think the Lib Dems are playing a dirty game here - and to be fair, they do have previous form.

A lesson to Tories (and Labour alike), dirty politics has a habit of coming back to bite you on the arse.

Luckily, I - deliberately I may add - maintain a very lowly profile within my CLP. So I have nothing to lose, politically.

It helps that I don't have any political aspirations. Happy to be a blogger and earn a crust in the private sector.
