'No doubt Brexit Party chairman would win the prize for political vanity'

Mirror Online Politics 1 month ago

If there was a prize for political vanity, there is no doubt who would win it.

Step forward Richard Tice, the wealthy, supremely-confident, motormouth southerner slumming it for Brexit in Hartlepool.

After yesterday’s dirty little deal with the Tories, Nigel Farage’s little helper believes he is heading for stardom as the party’s first MP at Westminster.

Publicity-hungry Tice, 55, scion of the Sunley construction firm is now CEO of property investors Quidnet Capital Partners, which has been described as a “vulture capitalism.”

He was a member and big donor of the Conservative Party member.

But he now revels in the title of “one of the bad boys of Brexit” - the party that’s a company, of which he is a director.

Not-so-nice Tice is already an MEP for East Anglia, many miles from Hartlepool, so he’ll have his work cut out serving two electorates – if he can overturn Labour’s 7,650 majority in Peter Mandelson’s former constituency.

He has a busy private life, too. Father of three children, he began a relationship last year with political journalist Isabel Oakeshott.

Tice was the first to coin the slogan “No deal is better than a bad deal”, a phrase foolishly taken up by Theresa May.

Like Farage, he wants No Deal, whatever the cost to jobs and the economy.

Hartlepudlians, hard-hit by the bankers’ recession, need him like a hole below the water-line in one of the ships for which the town was famous for manufacturing.
