Rexy For Ruislip

Integrity. Honesty. Fairness.

Guido Fawkes, you ok?

Those of you who follow my blog – all three of you – may already have seen that Guido Fawkes did an article about me in which the anonymous author attacked me for, among other things, respecting the anonymity of people providing testimonials.  This felt like it should already be the lowest point in their […]

Lessons Learned

Well, that was a very unexpected result from Uxbridge & South Ruislip. If you had asked me even a week before the vote, I would have assumed that Labour would win and Conservatives would be a very distant second place, with us in third, but really pressuring the Tories. Sadly this was entirely incorrect on […]

Uxbridge & South Ruislip: Your New MP

Well, the people have spoken. 46% anyway (where were you, 54% – let me know on Twitter). And you have selected as your next MP Steve Tuckwell of the Conservatives. I thought it would be useful to document some of the things he promised and did as part of this campaign. Hustings Remember the hustings […]

More Hustings

Still not me actually participating as a candidate in the hustings process, but I had the pleasure of watching Blaise Baquiche twice more on Thursday evening and Friday morning.  This follows on from my first hustings, and this article covers the second Hustings event hosted at Brunel University. If you couldn’t make it and want […]

Guido Fawkes did a Hit Piece About Me (I didn’t notice for six months)

Over lunch today, my friend and colleague Blaise Baquiche mentioned that Guido Fawkes had done a hit piece on me.  This was news to me, so I had to check, and indeed they did. Very exciting – fame at last, or at the very least infamy. Even though this is clearly an utterly inconsequential source, […]

Piers’ Propaganda

I thought it would be fun to pull apart the nonsense that is Piers Corbyn’s election flyer. I will of course refer back to my friend and colleague Blaise Baquiche to show how much better his manifesto is than this errant nonsense. Frankly, no it isn’t. It’s a by-election, not a general election for a […]

My Political Earnings

I thought it would be quite useful to publicly keep track of the earnings that I have made as a political candidate, including a source of any of those earnings. Right now, it’s easy, in that I have not taken any money from anyone for doing what I’m doing.  I intend to keep it that […]

My First Hustings

OK, a slightly misleading title in that this wasn’t my first hustings as a candidate nor was it technically my first hustings as a spectator.  In my defence, the last one I attended was for my student union presidency in about 2003, so it’s fair to say that it has been a while.  It’s also […]

David Simmonds Doesn’t Care

Today saw a really important debate and then vote in the House of Commons, namely a debate on how to respond to the privileges committee investigation into Boris Johnson and his serial lies.  Here’s why I think that David Simmonds doesn’t care. Why Was This Important? This boils down to a fundamental tenet of democracy, […]

List of Kangaroos

Today was a momentous day, in that the Committee of Privileges released their findings into Boris Johnson’s conduct during and after the Covid lockdown scandals, otherwise known as Partygate.  This resulted in a recommended 90-day suspension from Parliament, which is utterly unprecedented.  Had he not stepped down on receiving an advanced copy of this report, […]
