Yet another Tory MP in the merde


I wonder how many Tory MPs haven't been in the shit recently? It feels that there is another rumpus for one of them every time you turn on the news.

Latest villain is Nicholas ("Fatty") Soames who represents Mid Sussex and is the Grandson of Winston Churchill. He has been charged by Police with riding a quad bike on a public road and towing two unsecured children along in a trailer.

He will appear at Crawley Magistrates Court on the 16th of April charged with insurance and safety offences.

Pity we abolished hanging!

I guessing it is supposed to be Nicholas Soames who is in court for the quad biking offences. He certainly fits the description of being a fat b*stard. If it were Christopher Soames who was up in court, I think he may have trouble facing the charges - he's been dead for 20 years.

Thanks. now altered.
the idea of trying corpses has some appeal though!

Come on, let's not bring his weight into it. There's enough else to criticise, and if recent research is right, there's a good chance that the whole obesity scare will turn out to have been for nothing and us fatties will outlive the rest of you anyway...

Perhaps the "fat b*****d label is a bit unfair but I understand he is known as "fatty Soames" by fellow MPs and the Westminster Press Pack. If memory serves me correctly it was Simon Hoggart, of the Guardian, who initially applied the monicker.

If the Tories have to withdraw the whip from all their MPs who have involved into somekind of a scandal, with this rate Lib Dems will soon be the Official Opposition.
