In a Pickles over Essex
Eric Pickles, MP for Brentwood, has gone all Towie at the Tory conference, despite being a Yorkshireman. Pickles told the Tory boys and girls: "Now, I’m proud to have been born and bred in Yorkshire, but Essex is my home now.I have been transformed from a Yorkshire TYKE to an Essex TOWIE. My constituency is the location of the television programme The Only Way Is Essex. It’s fun TV and we all enjoy it. But there is another Essex Value that runs deep in the DNA of our Party:- if you work hard, you can go far. It’s a message well understood by Margaret Thatcher, John Major and by David Cameron." Wonder if he'll be going down Sugar Hut soon?
