Deadhead MPs, An Occasional Series: The Nigel Evans Story

The above exchange reminded me of the existence of Nigel Evans [Con, Ribble Valley], a perfect candidate for my Deadhead MPs series.

Nigel Evans was born in 1957 and will be 62 within a couple of weeks of the appearance of this article. He was born and brought up in Swansea, attending what was, from 1971, a comprehensive school, attended at other times by people as well-known as, or indeed better-known than Evans, among which were numbered an Archbishop of Canterbury (Rowan Williams), at least one other MP (Julian Lewis), and —now long-gone but once a household name— Sir Harry Secombe (d.2001), singer, actor, comedian and Goon. The school no longer exists.

Nigel Evans attended the University of Swansea and, in or about 1979, was awarded a BA in Politics. His only known job before becoming an MP in 1992 is that of assisting his parents in the operation of their corner shop in Swansea. The shop operated as a newsagents and convenience store.

Evans became a county councillor in West Glamorgan in 1985, rising by 1990 to become deputy leader of the Conservative group on the council. 1991 saw Evans step down from that role.

Evans contested two seats unsuccessfully before winning in the usually safe Conservative seat of Ribble Valley in Lancashire in 1992 (the LibDems had held it for a year; Evans had failed to win the 1991 by-election).

As MP, Evans made slow but steady progress. He joined several Commons Select Committees, was PPS to three more senior MPs in turn (including the then shadow Secretary of State for Wales, William Hague) and was in the Shadow Cabinet himself during 2001-2003 (as shadow Secretary of State for Wales). I assume that he is a freemason but admit that I have no direct evidence for that.

As MP, Evans has been a consistent opponent of the National Minimum Wage (is that the small shopkeeper in him coming out?) but is perhaps best known (or was, until he was tried for male rape) for his unusual expenses, claiming up to £400 a month for mobile telephone calls, as well as claiming for no less than four digital cameras in 18 months. Having said that, Evans has been in fact one of the least expensive MPs in terms of expenses.

In 2010, Evans became a Deputy Speaker of the House of Commons. He announced that he was gay later the same year.

In 2013, Evans was charged with counts of male rape and of sexual assault (six of the latter, one of the former), involving seven young men. In 2014, Evans was acquitted at trial on all charges.

Reading the newspaper accounts (see Notes, below) and casting my mind back to TV news reports of the time, I think that Evans was lucky to have been acquitted, overall, but there it is…

I might add that the Guardian reported after the trial that Henry Hendron, a notorious gay barrister since convicted at the Old Bailey of serious crimes and yet, surprisingly (or perhaps not so surprisingly…) not disbarred (again, see Notes, below) is or was a friend of Evans and provided moral support during the rape trial.

Like most “Conservative” MPs, Evans has consistently voted to cut back help for the disadvantaged, eg. State benefits, legal aid etc. Amusingly enough, this backfired on him when he himself needed help!

In 2012 he had supported large cuts to legal aid which became part of the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012; in 2018, after losing his life savings defending himself in 2014, Evans said that the experience had shown him that “It’s wrong, completely wrong, to remove people’s right to have expert legal representation … We’re definitely talking about justice being denied as a result of LASPO.[17]

[Wikipedia]

Ah, there’s nothing like personal experience to teach you a lesson…

There’s nothing much more to say about Nigel Evans, except that, judging by his TV appearances, he has arguably the worst taste in clothing of any male MP (and surely must have the worst sartorial taste of any gay MP!). I tweeted about his clothing once (though that would not usually much interest me), when I had a Twitter account, and to the effect that, on BBC Daily Politics, he looked like Phil Silvers or someone out of a Phil Silvers film. I was tweeted back by a furious member of the Phil Silvers Society!

Evans has maintained a vote-share above 47% since he became MP in 1992; his worst result was still nearly 48% (in 1997), and his latest (2017), at 57.8%, was his best ever, though still below the 60%+ attained by David Waddington in the 1980s. Evans is embedded, so to speak, in Ribble Valley, and looks set to stay until the House of Lords or the Grim Reaper beckon.

So there we are. Nigel Evans, an MP whose only previous experience was a few years as a county councillor and helping to run a corner shop owned by his parents. A true deadhead MP, whose TV appearances show him vainly struggling for mediocrity; he is therefore well-fitted for the Westminster monkeyhouse as it now is.

A comment on Twitter re. MPs, from “Old Holborn”; I think that I may add this tweet to some of my future (and even previous) Deadhead MPs articles…

I think that the answer to his rhetorical question is that so many better-qualified potential candidates, people like me, are weeded out at the MP-selection stage. They are too independent, not facilely “anti-racist” and “anti-sexist” etc, and unwilling to be controlled by a pack of Jew-Zionists. As for myself, I never thought of abandoning my principles and ideals in order to get selected as an MP, though I suppose that it would have been easy enough, if I had been willing to ditch all honour and integrity.

  1. Strange that he remained at home to attend University College Swansea rather than going away to university in a more *sympathetic* environment, say, London, notwithstanding the then abundance of non-repayable grants to cover fees and maintenance. Maybe he was required to mind t’ shop.

    I don’t know if your series has yet embraced Dr Sarah Wollaston, MP for Totnes, but there are a couple of minutes worth watching from around 37m of last Friday’s Delmer Unit presentation (er sorry, UK Column News)

    – claims she misled Parliament when rubbished sources of peer-reviewed materials on GcMAF; received money from Flow Ideas Ltd connected to pharmaceutical industry…

    At the conclusion of Yom Kippur, the survivors of the Halle shooting were taken by bus to a guarded site that the police organized for them.”

    Two goyim were shot by the idiot / Manchurian Candidate problem-reaction-solution fomenter but that was not uppermost in the dancers’ minds – presumably.

  4. Looks like loyalists in Northern Ireland are very understandably not happy with Coco The Clown’s SURRENDER TREATY.

    I wish though he and others wouldn’t compare the scumbag in No.10 at the present time to Neville Chamberlain. Chamberlain would NEVER have considered breaking-up his OWN country and giving a part of it away to the Irish Free State and Chamberlain’s appeasement policy was predicated on entirely noble aspirations of trying to preserve European and world peace and what he perceived to be the British national interest. Chamberlain betrayed OTHER countries NOT his own. He also controlled immigration and had a firm grip on law and order.

    Taking all this into account then it is an utter insult to compare Chamberlain to the half-Turkish monkey/Benny Hill impersonator we sadly have for a PM now.

        The only thing wrong with the present act is that it lasts for five years when it should be for four.

        Referenda are indeed alien to Britain but it was, as ever, the CON Party – the so-called guardians of the British constitution – (another thing they lie about) that made us need a referendum on this question as they gave away British national sovereignty in 1972/1973 WITHOUT asking the people FIRST as they should have done.🤬😡🙄

He has only ever used the issue to satisfy that demented craving he has had from being a teenage ie being PM.

      When the police stop acting as doormats or flunkeys for Jew-Zionists, and start doing their real work, I might be more sympathetic to them getting more funds and/or personnel. Until then, the police can FO as far as I am concerned.

  21. Exactly. We need bigger police forces to combat crime effectively. This is an essential first step to do that since even if you were to have draconian punishments for crime such as hanging and rattan cane flogging as in Singapore the FIRST THOUGHT upon the mind of a criminal is the risk of getting caught, charged with a crime and being sent for trial in a court.

    So, if the Tories propose to REVERSE their brutal CUTS to police manpower that is to be welcomed (though what they propose STILL won’t actually INCREASE the overall sizes of police forces because of those prior cuts).

    However, saying this, the police aren’t as effective as they should and could be in combatting crime since they have been far too politicised under successive governments since Thatcher’s and are mired in PC red tape.

    This dangerous politicisation of the police needs to be ended with immediate effect and they need to be released from the constraints of the PC cult and go back to their traditional role of upholding the Queen’s peace WITHOUT FEAR OR FAVOUR.

    Only then will spending taxpayer’s hard-earned money increasing their numbers be worth it.

    Like

    1. NO police force in the world can do their job properly if ordinary, law-abiding people don’t want to know or support them so the police have to be thought of by those people as being resolutely NON-political. I would suggest Mrs Thatcher was very unwise to politicise the police during the Miner’s Strike of 1984/1985 and every government since hers has increased this tendency. This process MUST be reversed as quickly as possible.

  22. That report about violence against MPs shows how pissed-off people are becoming with them and it isn’t just Brexit I suspect that is causing this. There are a few decent MPs ie Nigel Dodds but most of them are anti-British scumbags who are out for themselves so the free relatively conscientious ones get caught-up with the generality of them.

    If this report is true to any great extent the Tories might find having YET ANOTHER general election might not turn-out as they wish. After all, our crazy electoral system of FPTP causes our elections to behave like a lottery now but add a low turnout and the intervention of a fourth party ie the Brexit Party to a system that is basically only designed for two main ones collecting 90% plus of the national vote between them and the results it will spew out will become even more random.

The Conservatives are unlikely to be overtaken by Labour anytime soon, but if the Con lead were to reduce from 10 points to say 5, if the LibDems and Brexit Party were able to improve their showing by even a few points, then we would be back in hung Parliament territory.

  23. Re Daily Mirror story about doctor at Westfield shopping centre, Stratford, I agree with you entirely. I went to that place shortly after the Olympic Games were held in 2012 but I would be reticent about visiting it again because of all the blacks and Asians around there and their propensity to use knives to stab people with. I’m a law-abiding Brit so I don’t go around in a public place carrying a knife so if I were to be stabbed around there I wouldn’t have anything to use in self-defence and I have zilch confidence that Priti Patel’s PC Met Police would even be doing foot patrols in the area or that her PC plods would come to my aid should a young black buck or asian stab me.
