Hats off to the Telegraph

Are they insane, Cameron’s team?    They’d try to nobble an exposé of a dodgy minister by threatening the paper with Leveson?    That sort of thing is only going to produce this in response:

Earlier this week, Mrs Miller was exposed by this newspaper for claiming more than £90,000 for a second home used by her parents.

The arrangement is banned under Parliamentary rules. Mrs Miller has since claimed that her elderly parents are dependents and therefore need to live with her.

However, Parliamentary sleaze watchdogs have previously stated that, in this situation, they should live in an MP’s main home or the taxpayer should be compensated for the costs of their accommodation.

And it won’t be forgotten. There’ll be a general election and who will the Telegraph be coming out for, let alone the thousands of commenters on the site?

So Cameron’s lost the Telegraph, he lost the Spectator, who will he lose next?    And what are the odds the Telegraph will now find it necessary to do a really thorough investigation of Tory expense claims, publishing results case by case?

    Lovely! And there goes another shedload of votes to anti-censorship UKIP. 😉

    Cameron and his inner circle clearly don’t keep an eye on Telegraph column and blog comments. Two years ago there was, typically, a general but grudging acceptance of “official” Tory views. My perception is that that has gradually veered round via mild complaints to out-and-out hostility; with just a few of the public now prepared to defend Cameron. Part of the problem for Cameron is his inconsistency, his past record on u-turns (trust) and his emphatic statements on the superficial or the blindingly obvious.

      It is even worse than that, this is obviously a blue-on-blue squabble somewhat related to gay rights and female candidates being vaulted in positions they cannot handle.

      The camoron does not even get much respect within his own party any more, serves him right for taking on the 1922 committee.

      Of course his absolutely inept handling of the last election and numerous U-turns have not helped. He is not qualified for the job, at a time when his competition is so weak-Brown and Milliband ferchrissake- he still struggles.

    Cameron is not working for the UK and its people, he’s working for the globalists, of which the creation of the EU is a part. Why everyone is going on about ‘doesn’t Cameron care?’, ‘doesn’t Cameron know/understand?’, the answer is no – he doesn’t care because it’s not us he cares about.

    He is one more, in a long list, of cultural marxists who have infiltrated the main political parties in this country in order to continue their ‘long march through the institutions’ – to make the West ‘so corrupt it stinks’.

    Look at every single istitution in this country – all ruined and corrupted by this filthy cabal; all of our once respected institutions now made grubby and icons of fun by this vile ‘elite’.

    They will pay dearly for what they have done to us.
