Huawei 5G row: Government 'cannot exclude' criminal investigation

Tory backbencher Mr Grieve said there had been "some posturing around on a whole range of issues" and members of his party "preparing themselves for leadership bids".

But he said some ministers had behaved "outrageously badly" due to the breakdown of collective responsibility in cabinet.

Both of the council candidates – one of them claimed “Islamophobia was not surprising” in a rant about Muslims and said he would celebrate the death of the anti-Brexit campaigner Gina Miller – have now been suspended.
Pulman even endorsed a blogpost about the “destruction of the white race” which claimed that “non-white ‘migrants’ from Africa and the Middle East” were “flooding” Europe “disguised as so-called ‘refugees’”.

The post concluded that the migration was “not about humanitarian efforts to help so-called ‘refugees’” but a “well aimed settlement of non-white races into Europe and North America in order to enforce miscegenation [mixing of racial groups]”.

After a Facebook user shared the blogpost, Pulman replied: “Yes, known this for some time. About time everyone knew the facts!”

Pulman, who is understood to have since deleted his Facebook account and set up a new one, has been suspended from the party and is not actively campaigning for next month’s elections. The deadline for withdrawal of candidates has passed, North East Hampshire Conservative Association confirmed. He did not respond to a request for comment.

Robin Popley, 28, who is standing for the Conservatives in Leicestershire as a candidate in the Charnwood borough and Shepshed town council elections for Shepshed East, has endorsed Facebook posts suggesting Sajid Javid was appointed home secretary to secure “the ethnic vote” and criticising Prince Harry for having a relationship with “a divorcee of mixed race”.

Popely “liked” a post that read: “I had a lot of time for Harry however his choice is way off. A divorcee of mixed race ‘actress’ who has shown her ass on HBO does not fill the bill to be royal imo [in my opinion]. This just makes a mockery of everything the Royal Family and Traditionalists stand for.”

He “loved” another post made criticising the appointment of Javid which read: “It’s an appointment aimed at securing the ethnic vote. Purely cynical tactic from May. It should be on merit, not skin colour.”

He also posted last year praising Enoch Powell on the 20th anniversary of his death.

Most of us quite like our children and parents.
The inter-generational war is a myth whipped up by the usual suspects in the press.

Rest assured, the Tories have plenty of resources for moats, duck houses and their old people like them.
They've likely got Keith Joseph's brain wired up in a tank still giving orders for ever.

The oldies who'll go to (what was that term) "Natural wastage" will be the useful idiots who enabled brexit with their once in a lifetime biggest protest vote ever.
