Madeleine McCann: Playing Party Politics With Flick Cox

by | 21st, January 2009

WHAT news of Flick Cocks, the Young Tory embroiled in the Matthews Lewis macabre made-up Maddie madness mayhem?

It turns out that Flick Cocks is her real name. You knew?

Felicity Cox, an employee of Stoke-on-Trent City Council, has been temporarily excluded from the Conservative Party. Flick Cox works as a political assistant to the Conservative and Independent Alliance group.

Anorak learns that she is “believed to get paid £25,000 a year”.

Must the money now be donated to the hunt?

Nodding heads gather:

Says Councillor Roger Ibbs, leader of the Conservative and Independent Alliance group:

“I have complete confidence in Flick’s ability to do her job in her usual professional manner.”

BNP leader councillor Alby Walker:

“I think this is an embarrassment for the Conservative Party and also for the city council.”

Labour group leader councillor Joy Garner:

“It is alleged unless she is proven guilty, but it is very sad if it is true because she has very promising career prospects.”

And on it goes until a chink of light:

Councillor Ann James, leader of the City Independents, said she was not in a position to comment, while the Liberal Democrat group leader councillor Jean Bowers said she was reluctant to be drawn into the politics of the matter.

Indeed. More power to City Independents and the LibDembs.

Can political capital be made of a child gone missing in a foreign country? Is a politics worker always at work, never off duty?

It would seem so…
