Christine Emmett selected as Conservative candididate for Corby and err...

At last, the Conservative Party have selected their candidate for Corby and East Northamptonshire.

The only problem is that she thinks she has been selected for Corby and North East Hants.

This is what happens when Carlyn Chisolm (Head of Candidates) and CCHQ insist on flying in women from hither and thither because their (her) objective is to promote women over the best local men.

His Grace wept.

Never seen the woman, but presume she is blonde, with emphasis in the bosom area. Here’s some advice chaps, if you ever need to ask a lady passer by for directions, make sure she is modest in the bra size. When to comes to brains and bust, nature favours one or the other, rarely both...

Another parachuted in no mark promoting the agenda, which is what exactly

Ensuring the locals have no voice, or ensuring the local good apples who are still in the barrel stick to the rotten core principals

Who gives a flying (oops) what she thinks

Not as bad as the situation that produced the rodent for leader, Your Grace, but terrible enough. Deepest Sympathy.

One problem is that such reverse discrimination also affects good women badly. Not least because, as comments here begin to indicate, it helps turn good men against good women.

However, the greatest difficulty seems to lie in the party system itself. Is it not broken?

The party system broken? Good heavens, things are much worse than that.

Don't think she stands a chance. Local people will be fed up with candidates which have been forced on them by the feminist policy of CCHQ. Locals won't trust another high-flying female.
Judging by most women I know amongst by friends and family, few women seem to prefer female candidated, contrary to perveived opinion.

Strewth, one would have suspected that a vague understanding of constituencies may have been held as useful. How very depressing.

I look forward to seeing her take her seat in The Palace of Yorkminster.

I agree with you, English Pensioner, about women not really favouring other women in politics. In my view there have been very few really strong and able women politicians. I really do think that women 'have other things to do' (as Mother Teresa once said when asked whether she favoured women priests). Women have to make big, big sacrifices in family life to concentrate on politics.

Let us hope this silly women-only shortlist idea gets dropped, before His Grace has to be carted off to the Priory for rehab.

As a resident of the area, this woman can count on me voting for anyone else. The first time I have ever voted for a non conservative MP.

Scottish battleaxe springs to mind on looking at her photos, but, give her a chance. Looking on her website she's been a buyer for M&S and had some doings with rail privatisation. Just what exactly though remains encoded in civil service speak.

It states: “As Commercial Director for rail privatisation she achieved a wide range of high value aquisitions. Client focused, she provides objective advice, expertise and specialist skills with the aim of creating value, maximising growth and improving business performance.” ??
Trains are now even more expensive, still as dirty and not much improvement on the times.

Is Chick-lit Mrs Mensch the first of many rats to jump? Aren't rats supposed to stick together.

Tim Montgomerie thinks highly of Mrs Emmett but UKIP have already started campaigning with a Mrs Margo Parker a local business women. The LibDems are gonna's = so she has a real chance.

When I set up my business in West Northants, I had the Thomson Directories try to sell me ad space in the Alton (Hampshire) book because i was in west north Hants.

Ah, misogyny. Damn useful word to throw in when one of the sisters is exposed for a fool, and the men on this site have not been given expressed leave to criticise along with the catty, don’t you think, Jessica...

What Margot Parker the UKIP candidate who supports businesses needs to stop is things like this
FFI (Fee for Intervention).

Now that the government have cut the fees for these Health & Safety inspectors they are now charging the businesses they go poking around in for the privilege of the inspection up to £124 an hour if the fail the standards.

I'm thinking how on earth did the human race ever survive to live to today without the Health and Safety Executive tick box brigade?

I do not have a vote in the Corby by election, I live miles away in Southern Hampshire!But I sent a modest cash donation to the UKIP fighting fund.

I suggest that it is the patriotic duty of (small c) conservative voters in Corby to deny the Conservative (falsely so called) party their vote. If Commie Ed's deficit deniers win the seat by a margin less than the UKIP protest vote, it will send a message to Cameron that he cannot rely on the votes of the party faithful in 2015 while he remins faithless.

If conservatives hold their nose and vote for Cameron's Blue Labour, that will send a message too-the rich boys can keep wee weeing over us and we'll still support them.

So voters of Corby, decide which mesage you want to send.

It is time to get our party back. If there were fielded a reasonably articulate prospect runnig under a "Real Conservative," "Alternative Tory" or some such banner it would send Dave a message that he could not ignore.
It shouldn't cost too much and would be money well spent. I am firmly of the opinion that traditional CP supporters would vote for Donald Duck rather than some ever-so-correct candidate fobbed off on them by CCHQ.

Any chance of them introducing Conservative shortlists composed of candidates who are

a) Conservatives
b) Sane

Not bothered about the gender or the looks, I just want them to be the right stuff.

Your Grace! I am surprised and disappointed with your critique of the Baroness' attendance at the Republican conference. In the lead-up to the most important election this century, the one which will determine the course of our civilization perhaps for a generation, this is not the time to be penny-wise and pound-foolish. Baroness Warsi's attendance at the GOP fest in Florida may seem like a waste of your taxpayer's money and a dereliction of duty in the local trenches, but with the elections race being so close, any help from any quarter may make the difference. Consider, Your Grace, that four more years of the Obama administration may not only mean four more years of stagnation in the US, but of global economic crashes and even a world-wide depression, a sharp rise in regional conflicts and a power struggle in the Pacific. And that's if all goes well. From here at least, that would be somewhat bigger than your Corby by-election, dare I say.

But a surprising and immensely cheerful bit of news from your fair isles, Your Grace: Your Conservative MP, Mr Peter Lilley just wiped the floor with the warmist-alarmist piece of dreck, the "Stern Review of the Economics of Climate Change," the report with which your government has been siphoning off billions from your economy on the pretense of "climate change mitigation." In a thorough and systematic deconstruction of this document, your Mr Lilley exposed scores of errors and lies and may have been the first major Western politician to shout not only that "the Emperor has no clothes," but to show the pictures as well.

This is a tectonic event, Your Grace, one which is sure to embolden conservatives and Conservatives across the Commonwealth and even our cousins in the US who, thanks to Mr Lilley's bravery, might stand up and demand a proper accounting and a good look of this warmist scam under the bright light of the mid-day sun.

Can one hope that the "machine that goes 'beep'" just beeped over a faint heartbeat in your Conservative Party, Your Grace?
