Tories’ Eastleigh candidate called Coalition a “pact with the devil”

David Cameron's pact with the devil

The Tories’ candidate in the Eastleigh by-election described David Cameron’s coalition deal with Nick Clegg as a “pact with the devil”, according to The Sun. In an bitter online tirade after she lost to Chris Huhne in 2010, Maria Hutchings wrote:

“The Lib Dems have a reduction in seats and yet they might help govern Britain — INSANE”

Labour sources told the paper that Hutchings was “lurching from gaffe to gaffe”.

No wonder Tory spinners are so desperate to keep her away from the media.


  1. [...] Maria Hutchings, the Tory candidate in Eastleigh, mused in 2010: [...]

  2. Clearly she’s mistaken. It’s a pact between Mephistopheles (Clegg) and Beelzebub (Cameron).

    Satan of course as ever being Mandelson.

  3. Darren says:

    She’s clearly wrong!

    To paraphrase West Wing Nick Clegg isn’t Satan. He’s the guy that runs into the 7-11 to buy Satan a pack of cigarettes

  4. Jimmy says:

    In breaking news I understand Satan has now made a formal complaint.
