No love for Liz Truss at country day out

Sacked Environment Secretary Owen Paterson was the darling of the CLA Game Fair at Blenheim Palace today. A steady trickle of well wishers queued, as if at a wake, to shake the right-winger’s hand. Even Nigel Farage publicly endorsed O-Patz, and was almost upstaged by the grey man.

Country folk are sharpening their pitchforks in support of their displaced defender. ‘He’s the only one of them that actually got it’ lamented one attendee. ‘Bring back the badger slotter’, added another.

Paterson is, in rural eyes, a tough act for his replacement Liz Truss to follow, and she has her work cut out to earn the respect of countrysiders. ‘I have to say I immediately mistrust this Miss Truss,’ one fair-goer said. Truss’s case was not helped by her cancelling a planned visit to the show today in order to attend Cabinet in London; though she is due to don her tweed and wellies to attend on Sunday.

I tried all my possible means to get him back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and he confirmed it that he has made his decision,and he never wanted to see me again. So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my husband .So i explained every thing to him,so he told me that the only way i can get my husband back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for him too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow his advice.

    My name is Rosie Smith. To cut a long story short I tried about 3 different spell casters over a period of 3 months and all they wanted was more & more money and kept coming up with excuses as to why the spell wasn’t working. Just when I was about to give up I came across several good testimonies of Dr. Oyinbo over the internet. I contacted him and he promised to restore my faith back into spell casters, that they are real and love spells do actually work. I was very sceptical after several scam spell casters. Mine wasn’t a simple spell but Dr. Oyinbo went above & beyond his way to look for extra money when extra work was required. Always called & txt on time. Replied to emails on time. Only asked for half the spell money as initial payment. My partner had walked out on me one day with no explanation …. I was devastated. When I was about to give up hope, Dr. Oyinbo words guided and encouraged me, and then he was back 3 days after the spell was cast. I recommend Dr. Oyinbo extremely highly. Dr.oyinbo you are a gifted man and I will not stop recommending him because he is a wonderful man. If you have a problem and you are looking for a real and genuine spell caster, Try him anytime, he is the answer to your problems. You can contact him on ( prophetoyinbojesus@yahoo.com or prophetoyinbojesus@yahoo.com) or call him +2348074066640. He is the best caster that can help you with your problems. He restored my faith and I AM FINALLY HAPPY.

  • Andrea Loops

    My Name is andrea loops..I never
    believed in Love Spells or Magics until I
    met this special spell caster when i went
    to Africa to Execute some business..He is
    really powerful..My husband and I were divorce with
    no reason for almost 3 years and i tried
    all i could to have him back because i really
    love him so much but all my effort did
    not work out.. we met at our early age at
    the college and we both have feelings for
    each other and we got married happily
    for 5 years with no kid and he woke up
    one morning and said it is over between us and he was going to get a divorce..i thought it was a joke and
    when he came back from work he
    tender to me a divorce letter and he
    packed all his loads from my house..i
    ran mad and i tried all i could to have
    him back but all did not work out..i was
    lonely for almost 3 years…So when i told
    the spell caster what happened he said.
    he will help me and he asked for his full
    name and his picture..i gave him
    that..At first i was skeptical but i gave it
    a try because i have tried so many spell
    casters and there was no solution…so when
    he finished with the casting,he got back
    to me that he’s with a woman and that is the reason why he left me…The
    spell caster said he will help me with a
    spell that will surely bring him back.but i
    never believe all this…he told me i will
    see a positive result within 3 days..3
    days later,he called me himself and
    came to me apologizing and he told me
    he will come back to me..at first I didn’t believe it,it was like a dream because i never
    believe this will work out after trying
    many spell casters and there was no
    solution..The spell caster is so powerful
    and after that he helped me with a
    pregnancy spell and i got
    pregnant a month later..we are now
    happy been together again and with
    lovely kid..This spell caster has really
    changed my life and i will forever be

He is amazing, i also come across one particular testimony, it was about a woman called Vera, she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped his email.After reading all these, I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me.

    Judging from conversation I witnessed at a ‘civilised’ dinner party deep in rural Gloucestershire last time I was in the UK, the opinions of the rural moneyed/landed class, apart from being xenophobic, are surprisingly ill-informed. Ms Truss is going to have to put up with a great deal of self-interested and complacent nonsense. The CLA Game Fair must be simply ghastly. And the people badly dressed, in that utterly depressing style featured in the Country Life ads. Green wellies make me shudder.

    Game Fair, Blenheim Palace. You won’t find many regular farmers there.
    Chaz Moore might be about.

  • david trant

    I live in the country hadn’t noticed a wailing and gnashing of teeth at Paterson’s disaster. The majority of people who live in rural areas do not know and care even less who he is, they are to busy trying to survive. The number one issue is Broadband speed not anything else. The only people who are weeping come from a very small section of the rural population. As for the farmers they only care about the size of the subsidy, the bigger it gets the more they moan about socialism.

  • Colin56

    Funny how Paterson is suddenly ‘the darling of the CLA’ when, not that many months ago, he was the one for whom pitchforks were being sharpened on the Somerset Levels and other flooded areas. Anyone recall how the Levellers were left to fend for themselves till the great and the good in the Home Counties (Datchet and Windsor0 started to get their feet wet, then it was (almost literally) all hands to the pump? Paterson was almost universally reviled then for doing a rubbish job and not managing the EA (led by the equally rubbish ‘Lord’ Chris Smith) effectively; so, what’s changed?
    Not that I think La Truss will be any better, btw. She hasn’t a clue about the rural economy either. I think she may get a (very polite) awakening at the Game Fair on Sunday. Good thing it’s not too far from London for her.

      You couldn’t be more wrong, it was Patterson who took affirmative action to sort out the mess, the same mess that was solely the fault of the trendy lefties in prominent positions in quangos like the EA.

      One prominent Somerset resident, writer Christopher Booker of The Telegraph, described Patterson’s role in the Somerset floods thus:

      The real unsung hero of this story has been our Environment Secretary, Owen Paterson, who had already come down to Somerset in January, for private briefings from some key local experts …

    “Truss’s case was not helped by her cancelling a planned visit to the show today in order to attend Cabinet in London”

    Ooo, how dare she, who does she think she is; why, does she think it’s her job as a Cabinet minister to attend Cabinet, in preference to scratching a pig at a country show? Thank God Mr S is here to put her right…

    Badgers have friends and those friends have votes. Paterson did the wrong things for the wrong reasons incompetently.

    • Conway

      It’s the votes that count – or rather, it’s who counts the votes.

    • ButcombeMan

      Badgers do not have many friends in the countryside. they kill too many other species.

      They are vermin, through huge numbers.

    Farmers should vote Ukip.

    • RobertC

      As should every other voter!

    • Karl Harder

      Farmers will not do that as they live on EU subsidies

      • Conway

        I know some farmers who support UKIP and I’m in Paterson’s constituency.

        The biggest landowners do well out of the CAP. True enough.

      • fenlandfox

        Subsidies don’t even cover the rent,even on a pre 86 tenancy.

    It’s laughable to suggest that the CLA Game Fair represents country people, or people in agriculture, in any way.

          my name is Robin Shelly. Seriously i flattened when my Husband of 8 years left to be with another woman in Texas. I cried and sobbed every day, until it got so bad that I couldn’t bear it anymore. and i reached out to the Internet for help, until i hit on the real thing, and that is you Dr.Azuka. I almost gave up trying to get my Ex Husband back and having a contented family again.. I had tried the whole lot I knew, and with your spells, blessings and extraordinary magical powers, you did all the work, and immediately after 24 hours, my Ex Husband came back to me and he was penitent for everything that he has done. And now my life is balanced and i am happy again. Dr.Azuka you do a great service to people, and I don’t think many people had known about you. You are the diamond in the rough. Thank you Dr.Azuka You are talented and you give off yourself so freely like you did to me. Thank you for weaving your magical love spells for me and Sergio. He is back to me just the way it was when we first met.. from the depths of my soul! I am immensely happy now. Thank you and God bless you so much sir. now my man is back to me just in 24 hours, as you have said it..wow.. i am fully rewarded. Thank you so much sir, Lots of appreciations..

      Well said, sir….just as the Telegraph constantly tries to pretend that “country people” are great supporters of foxhunting. In truth the “rural vote” is made up of multiple interest groups which often conflict with each other….just like the “urban vote”.

    Of course Cameron made a mistake sacking Owen Paterson. One can imagine him saying: “No point in pandering to farmers, they’ll vote for us anyway. Also Liz is a state educated woman, and that is just what we need. And Owen doesn’t even believe in man made global warming, the most catastrophic risk to humanity ever.”

    Well Mr Cameron, there are an increasing number of scientists who have seen through the poor science that lies behind the greenie warmists ideas. And you were wrong to suggest the winter storms were due to AGW. Every IPCC report, stressed that the correlation between AGW and bad weather was virtually nil. Only Julia Slingo, chief met office scientist, went against all of he senior scientists, and suggested a possible correlation.

    I sincerely hope that Mr Paterson, now on the back benches, will continue to speak out for the scientific sceptics. He will find quite a few allies on the Tory benches.

    • Conway

      Paterson is speaking at a climate change conference in the near future, so he won’t be keeping quiet on this.

    I’ll be at the Royal Welsh on Monday. I’m sure she’ll go down like a bag of sick.
