Are her days numbered?

May 21, 2006

Yes, it has been a while, but we can assure all our readers that we've taken time out to simply discuss and analyse the way we currently run the site. However, we're back, and things will start to look a bit more exciting over the next few weeks.

No website holding a group accountable would be complete without their very own mole (or moles). And it has come to our attention that one of our insiders has heard rumours that various top conservative politicians are extremely concerned with Anne Milton and her performance as Guildford's MP.  These rumours also mention that these politicians are extremely worried about losing the marginal seat at the hands of the "utterly useless" incumbent in the next General Election.

So, is it time for the local party to deselect and select somebody new? Perhaps Nick St Aubyn deserves another shot?

Milton on tuition fees

January 30, 2006

Reported in the University of Surrey student newspaper, barefacts:
Anne Milton, Guildford’s Conservative MP was asked by barefacts to comment on David Cameron’s recent speech. She said: “The question of university funding, student debt, tuition fees and whether they can continue to be enough to fund university education and also affordability for the less well off is all under review in the Party. I will listen and contribute – student debt is of particular concern. It would be a mistake to make up my mind before I’ve heard all the evidence and at this stage I would love to hear from any students or University of Surrey staff and will feed their views into the policy review.

So, basically Anne, you don’t know whether you support tuition fees or not?

Guildford MP AWOL

January 4, 2006

They seek her here, they seek her there…
On the evening of Dec 14 2005, a major local action group (CBAG) held a large public meeting and invited Anne as the MP. She declined, opting to send her researcher (not a Tory councillor, but her researcher). Former MP Sue Doughty was invited instead. The meeting and its outcome was deemed worthy of a front page article in the local newspaper. Nothing in the record at Hansard suggests that Parliamentary matters kept Amme away on this date, and the House closed fairly early that day.

Dennis Paul likes teh alco-ma-hol

December 28, 2005

In true festive fashion, Dennis Paul has hit out at those bloggers who have given him a hard time over the past year (we assume these are Tim Ireland and Chris Ward, but there may be more we don’t know about). In a rather colloquial style, he states:

It’s been a year of sour grapes in 2005 for my opponents, but hey, why let a few blog pips spoil the cask…this years been vintage!! I’m trying out some Gardony wine over the festive season in anticipation of a new storm brewing!!!
Chin up…it’s only politics…see you in 2006!!

Indeed, some people do regard it as only politics. A Merry Christmas to you Dennis, and a Happy 2006.
