Baker's lost it

Baker's spent the last four years "investigating" the death of David Kelly. His book which is going to be published in November is being serialised in the Daily Mail. (I didn't know that was a Lib-Dem paper). From what I've read he seems to have concocted a rather silly conspiracy theory. Roundly dismissed in The Times by David Aaranovitch. Even the family of Kelly think he's wasting his time. The husband of Kelly's sister said "It is just raking over old bones ... I can't speak for the whole family, but I've read it all [Baker's theories], every word, and I don't believe it."

Baker lost it long ago when he decided to stand as a Lib Dem Parliamentary candidate.

At least he doesn't just allow himself to be whipped around by his party... or by any party for that matter. I'd rather have a nutter for an MP than a party-faithful slimeball who only brings up issues which are seen as PC (and 'sane')

Hear hear Piggles, except Baker's no nutter. He's the only politician anywhere in the UK who makes a genuine effort to get us better public transport. Plus he'll make practical efforts to resolve any issues a Lewes resident brings to him (and no I'm not a Lib-Dem).

Hello all ... back from a break and just in time to defend ole Norm ... as someone who analyses a fair bit of politico mumbo jumbo for a job I'm really glad he's my MP - he's been a constant thorn in the side of Blair over the illegal and undemocratic Iraq war and now he's havig a go at other New Labour knobs who own three or four places in London AND claim maximum expenses for their living allowances ... hooray for Norman! At least he's trying to counter the horrendous mis-spending of public funds by our current govt ... and everybody knows Kelly didn't kill himself.

can't ever agree with ALL of the policies of one person (or even party) - I have disagreed with some of Norm's over the years (namely Falmer and 4x4's) BUT he has championed two decisions on my behalf - not necessarily got results but he has rattled a few cages for me - and I have a number of letters with the house of commons crest at the top which I think is quite cool and shows his concern for his constituents - ther is a great unofficial site too!!

Yes.. nutter in a good way I must say. I think he carries a bit of the good guts of Lewes... not being druv and all. I like a rebel. And I like that he has been voted the most hated MP by the other MP's. Good on him I say.

I like Norman, but his councillors let him down (big time). For example, Kim Clarke (an utter embarrassment to the LD's and changed her party), Marina Pepper (enough said) and more. The only decent Lib Dib (Town Councillor) is Merlin Milner - he has two very nice dogs, is prepared to admit when he is wrong and has the courage of his convictions (including dress sense)!
Unfortunately for you Lopster, I agree with Norman's stand against 4x4's and blooming Falmer.

The big fat cheque from the Daily Mail must be a great help given Norman's paid so little as an MP

Considering that the Chief Executive of Lewes District Council is paid more than the PM (let alone an MP). I don't begrudge a penny that Norman earns
