One of the few traditional Conservatives to have served on the Tory front bench under Cameron, Paterson was Secretary of State for Northern Ireland before being promoted to the more high profile role of Secretary of State for Defra.

Candidate of the day

Owen Paterson

One day to go and Sir John Major has weighed in. “Labour divides to rule. To win votes they will turn rich against poor; north against south; worker against boss." We hope we don't wake up with them on Friday.

Hero of the day

Sir John Major

Another awful Labour woman. The fact Ed Miliband’s carved his pledges in stone doesn't mean he might not break them, campaign chief Lucy Powell has said.

Laura Perrins tells Owen Jones to hop off the outrage train

Lefty Lunacy: Owen Jones hates the police state but loves more police

Jumping on his latest bandwagon, Owen Jones has produced one of his off-the-cuff articles, entitled Theresa May has serious questions to answer, starting with police cuts – denouncing the Prime Minister over cuts in police numbers. He believes this is wrong. Is this the same Owen Jones whose recent book The Establishment has this gem […]


Lefty Lunacy: Only militant trade unionists get on the Question Time audience

A Tory voting businessman has blown the whistle on exactly why the audience of Auntie’s favourite Question Time is so ‘balanced’. David Stoneman tried six times to get into Dimbleby’s den and was rejected, only being accepted into the baying audience’s ranks once he sold himself as a militant left-wing train driver opposed to fracking.
