DUP stooge going out gracelessly

The foremost Conservative critic of UCUNF (sorry Jeff) has been Sir Nicholas Winterton who is rather more enamoured with the DUP. The MP for Macclesfield is renowned as one of the Tories’ few remaining unreformed neanderthals who will leave politics after the next election with the toe of David Cameron’s shoe in his backside.

True to form he’s not going quietly. Winterton previously confounded popular opinion, and good sense, by insisting that MPs should not have to declare their interests at Westminster. Now he’s whinging about travel expenses because he doesn’t want to sit in a standard railway carriage (as opposed to first class) with a “totally different type of people”.

The interview with Stephen Nolan is half way down the page, on the right, and it is spectacularly bad!

The man is a fool if he thinks only scivvies travel standard class. I travel standard class because I'm too mean to be the extra for 1st; and, unlike some others, I have to pay for it myself.

Sorry which party has he been a member of for decades? The Conservative Party. For which party has he been accepted as a candidate, ran for public office and elected as MP? The Conservative Party. For all his problems which party still allows him to hold their party whip? The Conservative Party.

I am very team-orientated – although an individual – very team-orientated. Occasionally on a Thursday night, later tonight probably, around 6.30 a group of us will meet in the tearoom to have a light snack and we will chat about the week, the week to follow, the current political stories and mull over expenses and allowances and everything that’s happening in that direction

A classic from another interview, hard old life he's had to lead.

Howdy, I am new to blogging and websites in general
and was wondering how you got the "www" included in your domain
name? I see your domain name, "http://www.blogger.com/comment.g?blogID=2623721153002721356&postID=3124899518634466265" has
the www and my domain looks like, "http://mydomain.com".
Do you know just how I can change this? I'm using Wordpress platform. Thanks for your time

When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four e-mails with the same comment.
Is there any way you can remove me from that service? Cheers!

With havin so much content and articles do you ever run into any issues of plagorism or copyright violation?

My site has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the web without my agreement. Do you know any ways to help prevent content from being ripped off? I'd genuinely appreciate it.
