General Press Cycle
Recent public polling does show that Liberal Democrats and Alex Cardigan is best suited to lead our foreign policy. With Ruth Murphy's eurosceptic pipe dreams about renegotiating the treaty with her wish list and Dylan Macmillan's lacklustre defence of Europe, British public leans to Alex and his leadership and I am not surprised after all the only thing Dylan Macmillan is good at is being at dead last at any poll, be it two leadership elections within his own party or at his job according to general public.

I have been referred as a well liked member of a Tory Party by the Health Secretary, let me just add this, if your definition of well liked is being attacked by one of your grandees as a "vicious attack dog for the queer alliance of open degenerates," and attacked my husband as a " chicken-livered buggerer of a husband", either you need a dictionary or you are lying.

Mr Ward may be fond of logical fallacies, but it does our political system no good. If he truly believes that Europe is on the verge of becoming one united state – then he should present the evidence for it, else withdraw the claim. He is equally missguided in stating that working side by side with our historic partners in Europe is “handing over the reigns [sic] to Brussels”. It’s nothing short of damaging fear mongering by an opposition willing to trash Britain's standing in Europe if it helps them increase their number. When the choice is between taking up our rightful place as a leader in Europe, or being isolated outside it as a proto-51st state, only the former will protect British sovereignty for the long term.

I spent fourteen years as a social housing support worker. To accuse me, indirectly, of cruelty against the people that I worked day in day out to protect from the cuts that Mr Dawson has railed against from the seat of trade union officialdom, is insulting beyond belief. If he is incapable of seeing beyond the red – that there are patriotic working class people like myself, from the very communities he believes he represents, that believe that Britain will be strongest working alongside our friends on the continent – then he should reassess who he really stands for. To write us off as nothing more than lackeys of “bankers and bosses” is to devalue an entire swathe of the British electorate.

Miss Laurie forgets the Union of European Federalists has existed since just after the Second World War. Since then they have advocated for a federal Europe. So yes ma’am there are voices within the European community who desire a federal Europe. I’m don’t believe it is fear mongering to say that there are those who want a European superstate. Nor do I mind working closely with our European friends. But denying that there are those who want a federated Europe is foolish. It’s ignorant honestly. I am concerned about the solemn pledge desire for a more closer union without red lines or boundaries.

But at the same time I’m not trying to crack a walnut with a sledgehammer. I believe that there is benefit in working and trading closely with our allies, but also allowing options that guarantee that a federated Europe is not an inevitability. So while she may be ok with her complacency and sleepwalking the nation into a United States of Europe, my answer is a firm “no, no, no”

I am saddened by Aubyn's recent heart attack, regardless of all that happened in the recent weeks Aubyn has always been a great friend for me, a great public servant and a great member of parliament for Lewisham East. I might say a model example on how to be a decent man and a great public servant and I wish him and his family the best and fast recovery. My thoughts will be with Aubyn.

It is disappointing that the Shadow Foreign Secretary would explicitly accuse the British Government of arming the Iraqi regime and then insinuate that those arms were used to kill British troops. I urge her to withdraw these remarks publicly and apologise, the lives of British servicemen should not be political footballs for Commons frenzy.

On an issue regarding our national security and British lives, I definitely do not intend to play political football.

What I will say is there was no insinuation that British arms were used to kill British soldiers, I raised it as a possibility. I believe the Foreign Secretary provided me with the appropriate assurances. So that can end there.

But I am not going to apologise for stating that the government had armed the Iraqi regime. Whilst I appreciate the Howe principles had been established, there have been multiple instances where UK activity in Iraq could certainly constitute ‘arming’ – including the provision of military landrovers in 1985 and the repair of military equipment in Iraq in 1982. Again, I will specify I felt the Foreign Secretary had provided an adequate response. Neither an apology nor a spat in this instance is warranted.

The late-breaking news about the Countess of Finchley's opposition to the Maastricht Treaty should put all true, dry Conservatives on notice. Those of us who are loyal to legacy of limited government, the sovereignty of Parliament under the Crown, and to a strong and independent Britain must reconsider support for Maastricht. Having been a leading, and up to this point relatively lonely, Conservative voice calling for rejecting Maastricht's costly and unconscionable transfer of power, I feel that our movement has been vindicated with the former Prime Minister's remarks today. Now it is time for us MPs to give the British people their voice in an up-or-down referendum on Maastricht.
