Scrapbook set legal process in train by tipping of SOS Racisme
We were first to expose his inconsistent story in January 2012
Burley complained to a pal: “They know everything about me”
Nazi party organiser and Tory MP for Cannock Chase, Aidan Burley is to step down at the next election.
His statement in full:
“It was a wonderful surprise to win the seat of Cannock Chase in May 2010 with the biggest swing in the country and it has been a huge privilege to represent the people of Cannock Chase in Parliament over the past four years. I am grateful to all those who voted for me and supported our campaign which led to our famous victory, winning a seat which had been held by Labour for 18 years. In particular I would like to thank my Agent Ian Collard, without whom none of this would have been possible, and who has been my rock of support since being selected as the Conservative Candidate in July 2008.
I am proud to have been able to deliver many positive things for our area since our election success, including spearheading the campaign to save Cannock Chase Hospital from the administrators axe, running four local Jobs Fayres to help get people back into work, and securing £35 million to electrify the Chase Line. That is what really matters to local people in their day to day lives.
After a difficult time I have decided to announce I will stand down at the next general election. I will continue to work for the people of Cannock Chase until that election, and look forward to supporting my successor, as soon as he or she is selected, to ensure that Labour have no chance of re-taking this seat.”
The case ended up in a French court in December, two years after Scrapbook tipped off anti-racism campaigners SOS Racisme about the vile antics to which Burley was a party. Mark Fournier, who was fined €2,500 in the case, says the SS uniform he wore to his stag party was hired for him by Burley.
For Burley, the war is over. We’ll be raising a glass in celebration…probably not toasting the Third Reich, though.
Dorrries’ 68 year-old election agent provides home and business for mystery woman in mid-twenties
Ramona Ladin has ‘glamour model’ photo shoot pics on casual sex website
Ladin claims Dorries is ‘her best friend’ but MP has ‘no recollection’ of meeting her
Top Bedfordshire Tory Andrew Rayment owns Nadine Dorries’ constituency home and is a director of the company used for the MPs’ media appearances — but he also provides accommodation and a business to a twenty-something Romanian woman who is advertising for casual sex online, the Sunday Mirror reports. The news is the latest twist connected with Nadine Dorries’ business arrangements, which saw herapologise to the House of Commons for failing to declare income from second jobs.
26-year-old Ramona Ladin recently gained an NVQ in hairdressing and is advertising for free work experience as a hairdresser. She says that she is working nights in a warehouse. But this summer, Andrew Rayment bought a £230,000 house in a Milton Keynes cul-de-sac which she is living in and set her up with a business — Hairflair MK Limited — as a co-director. Rents in the area are around £980 per month and she is currently driving an £18,000 BMW 1 Series.
Despite Ladin saying that Dorries was someone with “a good heart” and, indeed, her “best friend”, the Mid-Bedfordshire is claiming that she has “no recollection” of having met her:
“I do not believe that someone I have no recollection of having met has told you she is my best friend.
Under the username ‘sefovoastra’ — Romanian for ‘your boss’ – Ladin also has a profile (NSFW) on the adult website Fling.com where it is stated she is interested in “experimenting” and group sex.
Drugs police raided the home of Natalie Rowe, the dominatrix who was friends with George Osborne last week, just days after she announced she’s going to publish a revealing memoir.
She says she’s prepared to “name names” and the book will make new claims about her relationship with the Chancellor.
Rowe, who worked as a prostitute in the 1990s when she made George’s acquaintance, is also known as ‘Miss Whiplash.’ The book, which Rowe is due to self publish as an e-book, is expected to contain revelations about four top Tories. Osborne was a regular at parties she threw in her flat in the ’90s, but he has always denied the powder in the photo was any kind of narcotic.
She says 12 drug squad officers searched her home for two hours, but found nothing. According to the Sunday People, Rowe said:
“I’m not into conspiracy theories. I’d like to think the fact I’ve been unfairly targeted by the police has nothing to do with the fact my book is about to be published, which happens to be very embarrassing for the Chancellor. But it’s certainly made me wonder.
“There are serious questions I want answers to – WHY did one officer involved in the raid ask me whether I was about to publish my memoirs and WHY did a police inspector tell me I’d be opening a ‘whole can of worms’ if I complained?”
The “significantly undervalued” sell-off of Royal Mail has brought unexpected harmony to all sides of the political spectrum – with the Tory Bow Group and the TUC unified in what a disaster it’s been. They’re even using the same analogies…
The BBC’s Norman Smith reported the Bow Group had attacked the sell off “at a fraction of its value.”
“You can sell £10 notes for £5 all day long and call it a success”
Meanwhile, TUC General Secretary Frances O’Grady said:
“Privatising Royal Mail has become little different from selling five pound notes for four quid.”
Perhaps the first time in history a Conservative think tank has considered a privatisation to be even worse for the country than the TUC did.
Regular readers will remember a running theme in Tory party literature is the use of increasingly inappropriate stock images. There was the time Grant Shapps used a picture of a ‘hardworking family’ without checking who else had used it.
The Tories’ latest photoshambles is brought to you by James Wharton, MP for north eastern constituency Stockton South who is exceptionally keen for his constituents to know that he’s out there helping real people - boasting:
‘Everyone knows someone who’s been helped by James’
With a claim like that, you’d expect Wharton to be able to find a couple of real people to appear in his leaflet pretty easily. After all, he and his office deal with ‘thousands of queries on behalf of local residents.’
But no, you guessed it. The beaming couple atop the honourable member’s leaflet are not from Stockton South. They’re probably not even a couple. No, they’re a pair of models from a Spanish stock photo website. Which for an MP so keen to bring forth a referendum on leaving the EU, is remarkably…international.
The image is offered royalty free, so at least he didn’t waste any taxpayers’ money on his fake ‘real people.’
Yesterday, in what might be the year’s most laughable excuse for policy failure, Owen Paterson blamed the need to extend the badger cull on…the badgers themselves. Apparently they “moved the goalposts”. Watch…
So, obviously the internet rallied around to do what it does best – make government ministers look even more dumb than they already do. Here’s a rundown of Scrapbook’s favourites.
1. The Badger Van
Huffington Post combined two of Scrapbook’s favourite things – mocking Owen Paterson and mocking Theresa May.
Now, Scrapbook can reveal Pickles took yet another costly trip to Calcutta this year, during which he ate six curries in a single session.
During the visit to the International Institute of Hotel Management on behalf of UK Trade and Industry, Pickles was served a Saag Gosht, a Chicken Tikka Butter Masala, a Chingri Malaikari, a vegetarian Kadhi Pakodi, a Malabar Fish Curry and a Chicken Chettinad. The 5 day trip cost the taxpayer £4,104 in flights and accommodation.
In an interview with the Calcutta Telegraph, Pickles said:
“This is my first time to Calcutta and I’m definitely coming back!”
Scrapbook started the day with a game of Reshuffle Bingo – now, as Cameron’s reshuffled government takes shape, it’s time to see just how northern and working class his new team is. Let’s play Toff Trumps!
