MP In Petulant Strop Shock!

And who would ever believe that it would be none other than Andrew Pelling, last seen whining about ridiculous security measures despite his own voting record, and enthusiastically endorsing robbing Peter to pay Paul as a way out of Croydon's budget black hole.

Now, he's decided to split the vote by standing as an Independent and potentially let in the Labour candidate as a result.

Why? Well, according to him:
He has spoken previously of his feeling of betrayal when he was ousted and never taken back in by the party he served for more than 20 years.
It's not like they had much choice, though:
Mr Pelling was outcast from the Conservative party after the whip was withdrawn following allegations he assaulted his wife in September 2007.
Whoops! Despite the charges being dropped, they never forgave him, it seems. And forgiveness is therefore in short supply all round.
“My attitude towards the Conservatives is entirely positive. People may get upset or concerned about what I am doing but I am standing because I want to win.

It’s about public service, not self-service.”
Of course it is, dear boy. Of course it is...

He's going to service the public when he's not abusing himself.

Ah, once an accused wifebeater, always and accused wifebeater.

She should wait until he does something really wild before asking for the check, because an MP husband and wife knocking the shite out of each other is not exactly front page news. Maybe something involving a fish an umbrella and half of a pair of knickers?

Funny how men make lots of threats and noise but when women strike OMG.

Two men dead in Harrogate in five months as a consequence of their wife and a knife. Must be something to do with the recession?

they've done it now, guilty without a jury, so a precedent has been set.

what next?!?

Having said all that they look as guilt as sin, but still, guilty without a jury it just seems wrong somehow.

Kipling was right.. ;)

"...guilty without a jury it just seems wrong somehow."

It is. And the costs are only fractionally smaller than the amount they stole!
