Joanne Cash

From one end of the political spectrum to the other. There's been a lot of chatter about "Cameron Cutie", Joanne Cash in the press recently since she emerged victorious in a dispute at her local Conservative Party. Call me Dave refused to accept her resignation as Westminster North candidate and I don't blame him one bit, for the winsome ski-jump nosed Joanne is a woman of rare brilliance.

I saw her in action last January when she was a barrister on the winning side of my friend Austen Ivereigh's libel trial. One the final day of the trial, the jury rightly returned a verdict that Austen had been libelled by the Daily Mail. Sweet victory! But just as our minds were turning to champagne bottles, the Mail's QC, Mark Warby rose to his feet with a sneaky application for Austen to pay costs on the grounds that the Mail had offered him a settlement of sorts, which didn't include an apology, at some point in the past.

Outside court all was confusion as Austen's legal team went into a huddle of urgent sotto voce discussion. "It's the most iniquitious thing I've ever heard," fumed Joanne before launching into rapid-fire disquisition of Warby's move, ticking off relevant legal precedents on her slim, elegant fingers. Then away she flew back home to her computer, weighty legal tomes and the composition of a water-tight case for Austen. The following day Mr Justice Eady threw out Warby's application for costs, of course he did and the Mail was landed with a £3million bill. Only then would the Stakhanovite Joanne have permitted herself to relax, perhaps with a glass a mineral water. Chic, stylish, passionate yet serious-minded, Joanne Cash radiated star quality even in the fusty environs of the Royal Courts of Justice. It's such a dreadful shame she's a Tory.

Oh yes, on the off-chance that he's reading this, I'm waving coquettishly at the scrumptious James Quartermaine, another brilliant member of Austen's tip-top legal team.

Except that whilst she's a post metropolitan lawyer, she's also a posh metropolitan lawyer. It isn't necessarily a set of facets which make up an electoral asset, even in Tory circles.

She can't be that posh. She's from Norn Iron.

I thought that you and your readers would appreciate the following exchange of e-mails:

Dear Father Tim

Red Maria's blog Dolphinarium appears to cover the wider political spectrum and includes a fair and reasonable post on a 'good' Conservative candidate "Joanne Cash"

She has also allowed me to post 3 contemporary comments relating to my FOOTBALL AGAINST RACISM IN EUROPE 1991-2010 legal case focus. Perhap's Rainbow Maria would be a more appropriate nomme de plume.

A SINNER'S DREAM OF MARY

When I was out a wandering upon the hills so green.
I spied myself a vision of a bright celestial Queen.

(Refrain)
A rosary,a rosary with rainbows all around.
A blood red cross she gave to me upon that hallowed ground.

She wore a crown of silver and in her arms she bore.
A child who was the future of mans peace and not of war.

(Refrain)
A rosary,a rosary with rainbows all around.
A blood red cross she gave to me upon that hallowed ground.

Corpus Christi woman was the lady that I saw.
Build inside she said to me mans inner self once more.

(Refrain)
A rosary,a rosary with rainbows all around.
A blood red cross she gave to me upon that hallowed ground.

At the next General Election former Met Police Inspector Michael Barnbrook, the malevolent neo-Nazi BNP Police Spokesman, will be standing as a candidate for MP in Father Finigan's Our Lady of the Rosary Parish, Blackfen, which is in the late Sir Edward Heath's Old Bexley & Sidcup constituency. Nick Griffin MEP, the BNP's leader will be standing as a candidate for MP in the Barking & Dagenham constituency here in London at the next General Election.

Our Lady of the Rosary pray for us in BNP leader Nick Griffin MEP's EU/GLA/LDA/ODA NEO-NAZI DEVELOPMENT TIMES Amen

Yours sincerely

Dear Roy

Yes, Red Maria is a good influence from the left who maintains a good pro-life stance. She is a hard hitter on political matters and an asset to the apostolate.
