A Tebbit headbutt

Norman Tebbit has got the blogging bug - and is demonstrating a talent for the form. It might even be suggested that his presence inches the Tory blogosphere of Carswell and Hannan, Guido Fawkes and Tory Bear just a tiny bit leftwards!

Next Left had already extended a warm welcome to an old foe.

But Norman offers rather a low blow in his latest blog.

However, I should first say to Gary 4 that I certainly did NOT tell people “to get on their bikes”, I am not, and never have been a “Monday Club politican”, although I see nothing shameful in being one. After all, it is not like being a Fabian. Nor have I ever urged people to vote UKIP.


I think that may be what they call as a Chingford kiss.

I'm not much of a fan of the Monday Club myself.

And not all Tories on the right of the party share Tebbit's view about the benign nature of the Monday Club. It was David Davis as Tory chairman who suspended the club from the Tory party for "promulgating unacceptable views on race", Michael Howard who described it as "extremist", and a spokesman for Iain Duncan Smith who said that IDS' investigation of the club's views had led him to find them "repugnant".
