I was intending to write this examination of Esther McVey some months ago. Now here we are, almost in October, and the Conservative Party Conference is on. Looking at Twitter, I noticed some amusing things, one of which was the following tweet about thick-as-two-short-planks Esther, here seen both trying to orate and trying to seem as though her single brain cell is switched on:
Some of the msm and social media responses to Esther McVey’s latest idiocy have been hilarious:
Rather like those bumper stickers with their silly tasteless jokes, such as “Divers do it deeper”; or in this case, perhaps, “Conservatives do it on computers— in 3D!”
Perhaps rather too near the knuckle in view of the Conservative Party sex scandals of recent years:
[Stephen Crabb MP, fervent pro-Jew and pro-Israel puppet, so stupid that he got caught twice for very similar and very pathetic “sexting”; a prime candidate for a future “Deadhead MPs” article];
[buck-toothed Jew MP (now ex-MP) Brooks Newmark, another one who was caught more than once; I suppose that I shall be called “bigoted” for my view that sleazy American Jews should not even be MPs in this country…]
“You don’t have to be Jewish!” (or a doormat like Crabb) though…
So, Esther McVey. What do we know about her?
This is the Wikipedia entry:
The bare bones are that Esther McVey has an LL.B. from one university, an MA from another, and a “corporate governance” M.Sc. from a third. I tend to think that people who have several degrees are either brilliant or are semi-idiots wanting to look good on paper, and usually the latter. I was once slightly acquainted with an African ex-High Commissioner who had degrees from Oxford, as well as either Yale or Harvard (I forget which) and the Sorbonne. A complete idiot…
Esther McVey is at time of writing a few days short of 52 years old. Her Wikipedia entry seems almost deliberately confused or misleading in part (which makes me wonder how much of it she edited personally).
Esther McVey seems to have graduated from the —at-the-time not very prestigious— Queen Mary College, East London in 1988 or 1989 (a decade or so later it became part of the University of London). Why she, from the Liverpool area, decided to study in an unfashionable part of London, I have no idea. It may be that she wanted to be in London and nowhere else offered her a place. Her degree was in law (level of degree awarded not known). She did not, however, continue either to the Bar or to the solicitors’ profession; neither did she seek or take any salaried appointment outside her family’s business (a demolition and site-clearance business in the Liverpool area). In fact, McVey was a director of the family business later, from 2000 to 2006, though her father has said that “she was there in name only”, which is a strange idea of the fiduciary and other duties of a company director. Perhaps she did not understand (that is rather a habit of hers). Still, there it is.
Though Esther McVey set up a couple of unsuccessful and/or publicly-funded small businesses (thus enabling her to claim on Wikipedia etc that she had been a “businesswoman” before becoming an MP), her main activity from 1991 and for much of the 1990s was being a TV presenter for both BBC and ITV, the high point being, apparently, co-presenting “GMTV” (ITV breakfast show) with that ignorant Irish slug Eamonn Holmes [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eamonn_Holmes].
I have no idea how she got into that kind of work, though I notice that, at the time, her boyfriend was a TV producer. She has a Liverpudlian accent that seems, at times, impenetrable.
Esther Mcvey was elected as MP for Wirral West, a so-called “bellwether” seat, in 2010:
The Liverpool Echo described McVey as the “most reviled MP on Merseyside”:
“Few will forget the infamous moment in 2013 when the then Wirral West MP said she thought it was ‘right’ and ‘positive’ that struggling people were turning to foodbanks because they could not afford to eat.
She told the House of Commons: “In the UK it is right that, you know, more people are visiting – which you’d expect – going to foodbanks.”” [Liverpool Echo]
Even the Jewish Zionist Liverpool Wavertree then-Labour MP, Luciana Berger, said that McVey’s response still “haunted” her: “It was disgraceful and showed absolutely no empathy – I was on the benches going ballistic.”
“McVey served in the Cameron–Clegg coalition as Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Disabled People from 2012 to 2013, prior to being appointed Minister of State at the Department for Work and Pensions from 2013 to 2015. She was sworn of the Privy Council in February 2014, and attended cabinet as Minister of State for Employment in the 2014 British cabinet reshuffle.”
McVey was removed as MP for Wirral West in 2015 by the electors, many of whom described her, perhaps understandably, as “McVile”. She was then handed a well-paid sinecure for 2 years by her cronies and their cronies, as Chair of the British Transport Police Authority [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/British_Transport_Police_Authority], an organization and activity about which stupid McVey knew absolutely nothing (and probably still knows nothing). We talk about corruption in Africa or Asia, but what to make of an appointment like that?!
McVey was then, almost beyond belief, selected as Conservative candidate for the safe Conservative seat of Tatton, vacated by part-Jew ex-Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Osborne. She returned to Parliament in 2017.
“She served in the Second May ministry as Deputy Chief Whip from 2017 to 2018. She was appointed Work and Pensions Secretary on 8 January 2018, but resigned on 15 November 2018 in opposition to the Brexit negotiations and the Brexit withdrawal agreement. In July 2018 it was reported by the head of the National Audit Office (NAO) that McVey had misled parliament over the new Universal Credit scheme by claiming that the NAO report showed that it should be rolled out faster when in fact the report concluded that the roll-out should be paused. She apologised to the House of Commons on 4 July 2018 amid calls for her resignation.” [Wikipedia]
The bitch of course did not resign. Her type only understands brute force. People of her type have to be forced out of lucrative or careerist positions.
Incredibly, having been totally dishonest and incompetent as junior minister at the DWP (under part-Jap sadist Iain Dunce Duncan Smith), she was appointed by part-Jew Theresa May as Secretary of State in 2018. She later resigned over Brexit, but was re-appointed to Cabinet by Boris-Idiot in 2019.
“In June 2019 she stood in the 2019 Conservative Party leadership election. She was eliminated in the first round after finishing in last place with nine votes.” Well, so that was how her fellow Conservative MPs rated her— only 9 votes out of 317…
I detect three main strands in Esther McVey:
- useless at her jobs (I cannot comment on her as a TV presenter, because I do not watch the kind of rubbish she presented);
- lacking not only competence but any decent empathy or understanding;
- a tendency to get personally involved with those working in the same organizations: when in TV, with at least one television producer; later, in politics, involved with the useless and lazy half-Jew “Conservative” MP, Ed Vaizey [formerly Con, now Independent, Wantage], who was made a minister and then —ludicrously— Secretary of State for Culture] [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ed_Vaizey#Expense_claims]; now she is apparently engaged to another MP, Phillip Davies [Con, Shipley], in whom she apparently had “a long-term, on-off romantic interest” or vice-versa: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Philip_Davies#Personal_life
McVey is also, I read, friendly with the McCann couple, whose little girl, notoriously, disappeared in mysterious circumstances in Portugal many years ago now.
McVey is a member of Conservative Friends of Israel.
Some tweets about Esther McVey
So there we are. Esther McVey. A major deadhead, who is in a very safe seat and therefore unlikely to be removed by the voters. She, in her very person, is an indictment of the political system that has sustained her for a decade.
Update, 16 February 2020
Well, credit where due. Boris-idiot (or his eminence grise, Dominic Cummings), decided to bin Esther McVey, whose last Government job was as Housing Minister, a non-Cabinet post, though she was, I read, invited to attend Cabinet. God knows why. Housing is vitally important at present, but that merely begs the question: why appoint a deadhead like McVey to that portfolio?
A few tweets seen:
Esther McVey was an example of a whole phenomenon which grew up since 1997: MPs lucky even to be MPs, and who became MPs because they were once on TV (eg Esther McVey, Gloria de Piero, Anna Soubry), or because they once wrote cheap novels (Louise Mensch— remember her, the drug abuser and “ho”?) etc, but who were unable even to function properly as MPs before being promoted, incredibly, to ministerial and even Cabinet positions.
Now? Well, deconstructing her CV, she has never had a real job (a real one, not the fake ones on her CV such as pretending to have been a director of her father’s demolition business, or a “businesswoman”); save for her TV presenter years. Hard to imagine anyone offering her a position (I mean a business one…). I therefore assume that she will stay on as MP in her safe seat of Tatton (rural Cheshire) indefinitely. She will of course never again hold Government office.
