Lord Heseltine speaks great sense in urging lifelong Tories to back the Lib Dems and defrocked Conservative candidates
Last night, David ‘Uncork The’ Gauke shared a photograph of himself on Twitter “backstage in Gerrards Cross” with Dominic Grieve, Anne Milton and Michael Heseltine. All four smiled, but what it showed is something else – here are four true Conservatives who’ve been chucked to the wind by their former party and our inept Prime Minister, the “spoilt child” ‘Bosie The Clown.’
This morning, on BBC Breakfast, Lord Heseltine followed up with an interview on the BBC. He remarked:
“I don’t want a Conservative overall majority. That will plunge the country into prolonged uncertainty going on into next year… [Brexit] is divisive… It is deeply damaging and if it is wrong on day one, it is wrong on day 365.”
Elsewhere on Radio 4’s Today, he added:
“I cannot vote or support people who are going to make the country poorer and less influential, full stop, end of story.”
Lord Heseltine is right and he is right also to tell Conservative voters to “vote for what they believe in” and “put country first.”
As someone who regrets voting for Brexit on the basis of the lies on the bus, I agree with these sentiments entirely. I will be voting Liberal Democrat for the first time ever. Not because I like the Lib Dems, but because they are the only party standing up for what is right for this country.
Shame on Heseltine and the other three also. We voted out and we want out. GET IT DONE. Get it done NOW.
Deranged psychos conned by Juncker!!!!!!!!!!!!! Get out of Europe and chuck out the immigrant scum also!!!!!!!!!!! MAKE BRITAIN GREAT AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!! Close your bloody borders and stop Irish lorry drivers bringing foreign filth in as well!!!!!!!!!!!!! Learn from Australia —- if they come by boat, sink it!!!!!!!! Torpedo it!!!!!!!!!!!! These people are fools —– BRITAIN MUST BACK BORIS IF IT WANTS TO SURVIVE THE INFIDEL INVASION!!!!!!!!!
Heseltine is an absolute disgrace. He’s well past his sell by date and is as self serving as the others in the picture. There was a democratic vote which they’ve all done their best to sabotage and deny and here again they are manipulating democracy. How can any one trust those who sell their souls for euros and assume a know better than the electorate of this country. Utterly shameful.
Matthew, you and I were good friends of Marisa Masters. She must have told you of the unscrupulous way Heseltine wrestled Campaign away from her husband, Lindsay? Heseltine is not a man with scruples: in fact, I would go further….his attempts to play the Tory aristo in the mould of Ian Gilmour don’t wash.
Statisticians dismiss the so called vote as insignificant, so one from Gallup told me. He says there were too many factors that would render such a small margin unacceptable. Items such as weather, length of words, order of items are crucial to give it meaning. Aside from it being non binding, any strong government would have been able to dismiss this shambles before it happened. We witness the seeds of destruction and loss of credibility.
My foolish duck….and if it had gone the other way by the same margin would your chum from Gallup( anyone use them these days?) have said the same? Doubt it.
You stay in the bath instead of annoying us all with you pomposities.
