Can anyone explain why norman baker is investigating the david kelly suicide. Yes it may be a dodgy verdict but frankly what has it got to do with good ole norman. I thought he was voted in for the good of us, his constituents.

In a democratic society you have the right to challenge... Stormin' Norman is diligent & been a constant thorn in the B. Liar's G/ment side and is the best guy for the job.
Though he stepped down from the front bench he can still advise/represent his constituents.
Wonder which of the other parties nameless, faceless, gormless creatures you would prefer?

I don't vote. They all lie. My point being wether wrong or right i doubt people voted him in so he can dedicate his time to an issue that is nothing to do with the area in which he serves. What next, Perhaps the dog takeaways in korea need to be looked into!

Baker Boy is on record as having asked the most questions to the Government during a parliamentary year. Apparently, he is regarded by the powers that be as a complete pain in the backside. I'm not a Liberal, but I'd vote for him because I think anyone who has the time and energy to be a brilliant constituency MP (and he definitely is) and be a full-time thorn in Blair's side can't be a bad thing.

Any political party in power is as bad as any other (all they ever seem to achieve is massive pay rises for themselves at the expense of health, education, transport and street crime)but.. it is important that we ALL vote - what is important is a strong opposition to question every decision and stop all policies steamrollering through without debate. A healthy middle ground is important too - don't think that your vote is a waste - NOT voting is the waste! even though I dsapprove of Baker's anti 4x4 campaign and attempts to kill BHAFC - Vote Seagulls if you can't think of anyone better

Why disapprove of an anti 4x4 campaign? They are a nuisance and aren't able to navigate our streets properly. They're fine for off-roading, but less than 5% are actually used for that.
As for the Seagulls, are we really expected to believe that there are no brownfield sites in Brighton and Hove? Once you build on countryside it's gone forever. Fine if you want everywhere to end up looking like Crawley, but I think we're lucky enough to live in one of the best places in England and we should fight to keep it from being spoiled.

In his spare time he also seems to double-up as a pain in Tony Blair's backside. Normally I'd say stick to the constituency Norman, but anyone who gives the Government a hard time can't be that bad.

Norman Baker is an excellent MP in my opinion, he certainly gives value for money for his constituents.
For decades Tory MPS treated constituencies as jobs for lifes and did the bare minimum once they get elected. I think the most interesting stat about Stormin' Norman is that he spoke more in his first 3 months as an MP than Tim Rathbone did in his whole parliamentary career.
As with David Kelly and other issues raised in this thread at least Baker makes a stand on what he genuinely believes in, too many other MPs are happy to follow the party whip.
