Scandal, endorsements and salad.


At 09.23 this morning it was suggested in comments on this blog that former Chairman wannabe and serial Howlett attack dog, Simon Cavalier-Jones, was not actually a Party member.

London Spin, with it's razor-sharp investigative journalism, broke the revealing story this afternoon. One eye witness told tBg: "I saw a figure sprinting down Millbank toward Millbank Tower, he was trying terribly hard to type on his iPad whilst keeping his trousers up simultaneously. I'm pretty sure it was that guy from London Spin... what's his name again... oh yeah, Kash Karib."

tBg doesn't know whether to laugh or cry at this recent revelation by London Spin. Indeed, this is very embarrassing for Simon. Let's hope nothing else comes out of the woodwork for this independent politician.

Howlett also has another reason to be pleased today. Top CF blog London Spin is endorsing his campaign. Westminster's top newspaper said:

"Conservative Future needs a unifying force and a strong Chairman that can unite a broken movement – that person is Ben Howlett.

His (Howlett's) detractors argue that CF would perform better if it transformed into some kind of right-wing debating society, because there are no major campaign challenges coming up. But CF is not the Bow Group and, in case nobody noticed, the Boris Mayoral campaign is already gathering pace."

tBg bumped into Ben Howlett at Pizza Express while the news was breaking. tBg asked Ben what he thought of the Simon Cavalier-Jones scandal:

Ben said: "I have just come from a Freshers Fair recruiting new members. We have a massive membership drive going on across the country at the moment and if Simon would like to become a member of CF, he should contact his local association. We are decentralised, bottom up, grassroots membership organisation after all."

Ben seemed to want to get on with his Caesar Salad with extra sauce, so tBg quickly asked what he thought of London Spin's endorsement:

Ben said: "I am delighted that theBlueGuerilla and London Spin have endorsed my campaign. I want to ensure that CF is a united force and I will be acting from day one to ensure every region is working together turning every area across the country Blue."

Sound.

++UPDATE 17:32++ London Spin is reporting SC-J has his paperwork...

Ben Howlett said...

The diet starts here eh tbg ;) The sauce was the low fat version too haha

Haha, but it turns out that Simon is a party member and only an admin error at CCHQ said he was not! Ballot paper now issued.

Ben Howlett must have a lot of spare time, but most unemployed losers do.

Why do you insist an attacking someone who is not even in the race anymore? Howlett and his supporters always talk about running a fair campaign and of building a unified CF but all they do is smear and lie and create rifts within CF.

The message that you blog sends out is clear and simple - if you don't support Howlett you will be smeared and a hate campaign run against you!

Bit harsh. tBg is merely reporting the afternoons events.

" We are decentralised, bottom up, grassroots membership organisation after all."

So on that basis why does he need to run? He claims this is what he is going to create. umm, odd.

Also that whole para is pure tautology, he really is not very bright.

That's not a harsh reflection on your blog TBG,

Good to see Howlett showing his true colours, a nasty piece of work. Although TBG is his Andy Coulson, I assume this blog will be no more after the CF elections?

theBlueGuerilla. said...

Outrages suggestion.

Anonymous said...

Err, you referred to your self as Coulson in the story below. You started your blog back up for these elections and have given negative to everybody but Howlett & Slate.

theBlueGuerilla. said...

tBg did not do that.

Do what the Coulson bit?

Carl Cox mixes phat tunes, vote Cox.

Khan, runs a pool place so is good for Beers and Frames.

Howlett, well, seems all he is good for is a freebie at Pizza Express (did he get staff discount?)

Is that Ben posting as "anon" again? Btw my pizza was a bit burnt at lunchtime, and your a very slow waiter Benny.

This story tells you a lot about Mr Howletts character, instead of saying something along the lines of lots of people have the same issue and I promise to sort it out. He just wants to take the piss and score cheap points on a personal level, thats not the behaviour of somebody ready to lead.

Does he really think it's funny that half the membership have such issues? This proves exactly what people say about him, that he is not fit to be Chair.

Another commentator that doesn't exist except inside the head of a certain someone

Justdonearealsmeartest said...

Andrew Baxter: 299,000 results on Google.
Michael King: 85,000,000 results on Google.

I think the person with the head issues is clearly the person writing stupid comments saying nobody exists with those names. It's frankly about as credible as Communism when it comes to the truth, so must have come from the Howlett camp.

JustDoneASmearTest said...

Perhaps a link to each of their facebook accounts would sort that one out?

Oh that's right they don't have one

Justdonearealsmeartest said...

Lol @ Ben!

Both names have hundreds if not thousands of facebook users. I suggest you go and get a life, instead of throwing random smears around on the Internet (or even a Job Ben)

JustDoneASmearTest said...

I'm not Howlett, but I would still like to see the facbook page.

Come on Michael give us a link! All the readers here are calling your bluff

These are exactly the sort of Howlett smears we have been talking about - Here is your evidence!

If a member disagrees with Howlett and the way he is running his campaign then the line "they don't exist, they aren’t a member etc" is quickly posted by his team. Howlett obviously endorses these gutter tactics because he never speaks out against them.

In short it's intimidation pure and simple! They are trying to silence peoples genuine concerns and criticisms, this is not the sort of CF I want to be a part of!

Here we see City Spiv Simon drinking Champagne with a banker friend. People like him should be banned.

Anonymous said...

And here we see more evidence of the Hard left Howlett campaign. Sorry but bashing bankers is pure socialist, although Ben has done loads of bashing. Perhaps it was just jealousy.

Perhaps a certain loser who works for a certain MP, should be a bit more careful what he tells people. Crap comments he writes too.
