    Apparently that was the smallest of the parties, there are another 3, or so, to go with probably bigger fines.
    Failing to adhere to their own policies must be worthy of a day in the stocks or public birching.
    This is a real problem for the Tory party.
    Two jobs where the mp’s and the electorate want to see the incumbent off, but in both cases, no one wants the poisoned chalice. What to do eh!

    From the Telegraph...

    3:48am
    Tiverton Tory candidate 'locks herself in room'
    Helen Hurford, the Tory candidate for Tiverton and Honiton, has locked herself in the room previously reserved for media interviews at the constituency's election count in a sports centre in Crediton, the Press Association has reported.

    Ms Hurford is reportedly refusing to speak to any press.

    At around 3.30am Ms Hurford arrived at the election count where she is projected to lose the previously safe Conservative seat.

    Do the Press deliberately grab the wrong end of the stick when they feel like it?

    Boris Johnson 'actively thinking about' third term as PM

    The prime minister was asked if he would like to serve a full second term in office - to 2028 or 2029.

    "At the moment I'm thinking actively about the third term and what could happen then, but I will review that when I get to it," he told reporters.

    Clearly not a comment to be taken seriously...

    Looks like everyone wants rid of him at the moment.

    Good riddance to those two wasters.

    Now Boris can get on with the job.

    A great statesman with his rightful place in history for getting Brexit done and steering the Royal Britannia through the stormy Covid sea

    ^ If by getting on with the job, you mean ruining the UK, I think he's already managed that.

    He's going to run out of people for his cabinet soon and be down to Sharon from the Bingo hall, Abu the corner shop owning pedo and Winston the yardie who's been awaiting extradition for 9 years.


    Boris Johnson fights for political survival as cabinet ministers quit

    Boris Johnson is fighting for political survival after two of his top ministers attacked his leadership and resigned.

    Chancellor Rishi Sunak and Health Secretary Sajid Javid quit within 10 minutes of each other, followed by a flurry of junior ministers and aides.

    Critics said it was "over" for the prime minister, while Labour said the party he led was corrupted.

    But Mr Johnson made it clear he planned to stay on as he moved to shore up his government with a cabinet reshuffle.

    He named Nadhim Zahawi as the new chancellor, while the prime minister's chief of staff, Steve Barclay, has become health secretary.

    Mr Johnson - who is facing the most serious leadership crisis of his premiership so far - will come under further pressure later on Wednesday as he faces MPs at Prime Minister's Questions.

    He is also due to give evidence to the Liaison Committee - a group of MPs who scrutinise the government's policy and decisions.

    Neither Mr Javid or Mr Sunak have publicly spoken since standing down, but their resignation letters on Tuesday were highly critical of the PM.

    Mr Javid warned the leadership was not "acting in the national interest", while Mr Sunak said the public expected government to be conducted "properly, competently and seriously".

    Opposition party leaders urged cabinet ministers to join the pair and resign, and Labour Leader Sir Keir Starmer said he was ready for a snap general election.

    Conservative MP and former chief whip, Andrew Mitchell, told BBC Newsnight it was "over" for Mr Johnson, saying "he has neither the character nor the temperament to be our prime minister" - and the only question was how long the affair would go on.

    But no Tory MPs have declared a leadership challenge against the prime minister and several ministers have rallied around the PM, including Foreign Secretary Liz Truss - one potential contender to replace him as Tory leader.

    She said she was "100% behind the PM", while cabinet ministers including Dominic Raab, Michael Gove, Therese Coffey and Ben Wallace also indicated they would be staying in the government.

    Tory backbencher Daniel Kawczynski suggested the resignations would ultimately strengthen Mr Johnson's position, adding they "could have triggered an avalanche against the prime minister but it hasn't".
