The Suit
Posted Saturday, 30 May 2009 at 23:28



A perma tanned man in a suit, with a PR company and a film crew flew in and out of Woburn yesterday.


The film crew rang me later and gave me a low down on the proceedings. I think they may have found the funniest moment when the suit told the camera that it had always been interested in politics. At this point a very cheeky young girl (I have no idea who she was!) was hovering around and making one or two inappropriate but extremely funny comments, however, the suit was not impressed.  Sounds like a very badly brought up young lady to me.


Since expense gate (when will we stop adding the word ‘gate’ onto the end of every Westminster crisis?) I haven’t been out locally.


It doesn’t matter how much you explain things, there is a fear that some people will only make a connection between the DT and your name to assume you are guilty. Hence my point of the danger in conflating the serious fraudsters with the administrative errors. All are judged equally guilty.


My neighbour was getting fed up with my hermit existence and dragged me down to the pub. We got to the door of the local but I didn’t want to go in, so we went down the road to a pub where I thought they didn’t know me as well. Wrong, but ok. Nice people.


This gave me the courage to move back up the road to the local. Although Andy the manager will probably never read this blog, I just wanted to say thank you. I was just so incredibly touched by the welcome I got when I walked in.


I was given so many hugs that I thought my ribs were going to break. And so many drinks I had to leave them behind. Apparently, a very badly behaved young lady drank them all after I left.


Waiting up tonight for paper review. Somehting I used to enjoy.

Nadine, Here speaks an aged gent - time you were 'schnucked up' in bed young lady! Not that you need beauty sleep I hasten to add! The damn papers will still be there first thing in the morning! Sleep well!

Good statement by you in BoS this morning in response to David Reeves.

Just adopt the attitude that if you have done nothing wrong you have nothing to fear from your electorate. People are generally very fair, despite the lynch mob mentality that seems to exist in the media at the moment. I'll pass on your comments to Andy!

Oh no, not another case of "I'm a celebrity, get me in there". The Mother of Parliaments has taken a bit of a bashing over the last few weeks, and quite rightly too. But the last thing we need is a Westminster filled with celebrity wannabe politicians.

@ Bemused onlooker. He may have been, but I doubt if he was in a SUITE. If he was, did he look sweet in it?? I realise that it was late at night when you posted this one Nadine and your spellchecker wouldn't have been able to distinguish between "suite" and "suit", but it would have told you that there was something wrong with somehting in the last line. I shan't be offended if you don't print this one! Best wishes.

OK – you didn’t print my post about you “pulling your Lipstick” on a House of Commons fees office clerk. But I thought it was quite funny. You must learn to take life less seriously. Richard Stay is running as my local councillor for the new Central Beds Council. Rumour has it he is pitching to be Leader as, despite all the scandal, the Tories will win this one with ease. But if you thought I was cutting you should have a look at his Blog. To quote directly from his Blog “And just at a time when many of us would have thought that silence might have been the order of the day we get a very emotional explanation of just how wretched MP's feel. Forgive me Nadine, but when the tumbrels are rolling & the mob is baying for blood, sympathy for Hon Members is running on the short side”. And he is supposed to be on your side! On a serious note I do thank you for your position on abortion. This is the one issue where age brings a new perspective and I have completely changed my mind over the last 40 years.

I wonder if you feel as insulted as I do Nadine that the best MidBeds can attract by way of a 'celebrity' is Mr Van Day? Although he has one or two things in common with yourself, being bought up in a council house, blonde and short the similarities end there. After a little research you discover that DVD has boasted about splurging £100,000 on cocaine and indeed has a conviction for possessing cocaine (the reason why he was refused entry into the USA),has been bankrupted and failed to become a Tory councillor after he made homophobic remarks. His one time singing partner Thereze Bazar is quoted as saying 'he is sooooo vain he has more beauty products in his bathroom than I have'. David admits he has a bit of a mucky past........ And you, Nadine, are the one staying inside???????????

Hi Nadine. MP's such as youself will face your public and they will judge you on your merits. However your remark re the D.T."conflating the serious fraudsters with administrative errors" Too many MP's seem to think that administrative errors as a reason will suffice. To this member of the public downright lies in some cases. I accept the rotten expenses system is there to be milked but some MP's drank the whole bottle. They have been caught cheating and fiddling and seem to think they are doing us a favour by standing down at the next election.They should go now.In the case of affected conservatives David Cameron should act with more decision. Gordon Browne I hear you ask Well I've given up on him.

On Friday "Have I Got News For You" played a clip of Van Day dumping his girlfriend live on air. He seemed as shallow as a paddling pool. What a rotter. Don't be a hermit, get out and talk to folk.
