McGimpsey to challenge Robinson MP…

ANOTHER McGimpsey has entered the poliltical fray. Gareth, son of Michael, has fended off senior Ulster Unionist Dermott Nesbitt’s bid to stand for the Strangford Westminster seat to challenge the DUP’s Iris Robinson.

    perhaps the reason david persistantly won’t tell us is because he doesn’t actually know….

    it floats his boat to sit online criticising the UUP but at the end of the day, he is sitting outside the tent pissing in.

  • Will

    “he is sitting outside the tent pissing in.”

    Such a delecate turn of phrase.

  • Butterknife

    I have just went of Rebecca now, seems to be no lady at all:(

  • Butterknife

    It is no longer the UUP’s sole fault: it is also Dublin’s fault to the DUPs’ incompetence.
    Dublin’s Stance ‘Could Scupper A Deal’ (The News Letter)
    It appears the Taliban Prods are faultless!

  • Peter Brown

    There is a world of difference.

    £230,000 to be precise…but Robinsons figures are comparable to the Westmisnter and Assembly OCA claimed by MPs and MLAs with very large claims and very little product

  • jonty

    It sad to see peter brown and David brewster comparing Nobel prize money to expenses paid by the taxpayer. Are they saying that MPs should treat expenses as prizes, freebies to be used without any thought to the taxpayer.

  • Peter Brown

    Ahem Jonty who pays Assembly OCA? Nobel or the taxpayer – stop ducking and diving….

  • davidbrew

    “he gave it away to the lawyer’s charitable fund for incompetent and misleading advice and their practitioners.”
    can’t stop now I’m off to put in a claim-back of the queue Mr Brown!

    Surely if his spokesman said there was going to be a foundation it’s a legitimate question? And whilst I’d love to claim the Prize was all his own work, he did have other co-negotiators-where’s Ken’s share? Or cecil Walker’s? Sadly I wouldn’t be eligible, not having been privy to the real sellout by reason of deception (see sluggers passim)

    Rebecca, good to see that even though your education is equipping you with erudition and articulate debating skills you aren’t capable of deploying them against an unanswerable case. Blind denial as a substitute for rational debate will see you go far in your party

  • jonty

    Trying to equate prize money to taxpayers money is a joke and shows how desperate the DUpes supporters are to divert interest from the London properties of the Robinsons. I wonder why?

  • davidbrew

    jonty, just for once answer a question. Life is about trying new experiences. You might even feel a sense of achievement. The only pity is I’ll never get to ask you about the allowances of Mr and Mrs Trimble MPs. No doubt you’ll be wanting assurances from them that they won’t perpetrate the same hideous crime you lay at the Robinson’s door.
    While we’re at it, who interviewed Mrs Trimble for the post of running his soon to be lordship’s office, and the numerous other UUP family payroll members your precious tax revenues are funding? If snouts in the trough is the charge, the UUP are at least as culpable.

  • jonty

    david brewster
    all i have done is ask a few simple questions that you , or fellows dupes, are either unwilling or unable to answer.

  • davidbrew

    ….and studiously avoiding answering any yourself!

  • Butterknife

    “The only pity is I’ll never get to ask you about the allowances of Mr and Mrs Trimble MPs. [davidbrew] ”

    Is this a recognition that if Daphne wins the selection to become the UUP candidate for Lagan Valley that the DUP may be willing to sell Jeffrey Robinson (sic: queens_unionist) out?

    “Is this a recognition that if Daphne wins the selection to become the UUP candidate for Lagan Valley that the DUP may be willing to sell Jeffrey Robinson (sic: queens_unionist) out?”

    Try reading it again. I think he means that we’ll never be able to ask about the Trimble’s expenses, because there will never be 2 Trimble MPs.

    And Jonty,
    Will you ever answer a question? You only do your own arguements (no matter how poor) a disservice with a complete unwillingness to enter a proper debate.

  • Butterknife

    Mmmmmm one thinks a sarcastic symbol is needed.

  • Will

    Butterknife,
    There probably was a touch of sarcasm in my post. After all, its quite possible there could be no Trimble MP’s after the election.

    Who would employ Daphnie then??;-)
