Faggy Clarke turns on Tories

Telegraph | News | Clarke criticises Tory 'Right-wing populist' rump

"We have, I am afraid, made ourselves a rather Right-wing popularist party which is why we seem incapable of getting more than a third of the vote," he told BBC1's News 24.
A Daily Telegraph/YouGov poll reported last week that 56-year-old Mr Davis was the overwhelming favourite among party members to replace Mr Howard, with Mr Clarke ranking only fourth in members' preferences.
Challenged on the results yesterday, Mr Clarke said that they underlined why grassroots members should no longer have the decisive "one member, one vote" say on who becomes Tory leader.

Translation: "You can't trust the Tory members - the ones who put up the cash for the party - firstly they want to pursue "popularist" policies and secondly they aren't clever enouhg to vote the right way - just like those stupid French and Dutch people: much better to leave the running of the place to clever people like me who can get it all sorted over a decent lunch or two."

Piss Off - your time is over.

The best place for Clarke is his head over Traitors Gate, next to that of his big nosed hero Heath.
If the tories had the stones to kick the likes of these two out of the party then they might truly be a party worth voting for.

I agree with "gun culture", but why is Clarke still in the CONservative Party? Traitors, all of them.

Clarke is a good guy and is a welcome member of the conservatives - but if he cannot stop criticising the party in public, perhaps he should join the Lib Dems?
