Political assassination

I cannot say that I approve of it, with the exception of tyrannicide when all else has failed. However, Manchester Crown Court has heard it alleged that someone had this bearded fellow in his sights:

Not someone most of us would recognise, I imagine. He is, however, Baron Greaves, of Pendle in the County of Lancashire and of a Liberal Democrat persuasion. He seems fairly blameless as Lib Dems go, and it seems downright odd that this chap would be number two on anyone's list after the Prime Minister. I wish him a long life and every happiness, if less of the Lib Demmery.

You can always rely on the wife to grass you up

A bit strong Mr N. Maybe we can settle for wishing him a sprained ankle or an embarassing itch? Maybe both..

PH - Don't get me started on wives.

pity the poor man. to look like that is more of a curse than death, surely.

Shame there was no full length photo available - he *must* be a sandle wearer.

I first came across him when he was plain old Tony Greaves. He was part of the Liberal (as they were then) by election team.

We were both in Croydon North West for the famous by-election when another ginger beardie won the seat for the Liberals - Bill Pitt (or Arm Pitt as we affectionately called him due to the constant dark stain on his shirt).

Greaves was actually quite a radical in his time - part of the (don't snigger) Hebden Bridge Mafia and national chair of the Association of Liberal Councillors.

Happy days.

Ive browsed a few contract assasin sites C and I am finding it hard to locate such a specilaised service.As the nice girl on reception said

"I `m awfully sorry Mr.Newmania but we are rather a "death " focussed organsisation"

They are sending someone to talk to me on a no obligation basis. You know the do one get two free deal is awfully tempting

N - whatever you do, don't try to slide out of paying them.
