MPs to end ‘Strangers’ appellation

MPs are to end use of the term Strangers – the centuries-old House of Commons name for members of the public. The House’s modernisation committee feels it is outdated and unfriendly. MPs are expected to agree today to a recommendation that Strangers be referred to instead as ‘a member of the public’.

Guido thinks the terms ‘our bosses’ or ‘the taxpayers’ have a better ring to them. Not that I like to be addressed by or even mix with politicians and such vermin. Just a week to go, fireworks…. this time… you’ll see…

Polidex – SCANDAL!!!

Ripefig – has a stonking £14,928.35 and it seems to rise by about 30% per day – how you ask? Well somebody bought a shed load of Virginia Bottomley and she jumped 50%. You would of thought that now Ripefig has got a real job, if you can call public affairs real, he wouldn’t have time to day-trade MPs.

Jamesw is on £5,685.15, jamesgraham £4,849.62, Guido Fawkes £4,451.71, spicer has a respectable £3,476.24. The rest of you don’t seem to have grasped the necessity to day-trade rather than invest and hold.

Recess Monkey on £878.40 emails to point out that his site gives the most referrals to here and tell me he is “getting bored with Polidex – largely because I’m so crap at it.” OK my parliamentary primate, I get the hint. Shhhsh, here’s the tip – don’t tell anyone else or there will be a scandal – David Cameron, Deputy Chairman of the Conservative Party, is a buy today…. nudge, nudge, wink, wink…

Mark Reckless told UKIP…

“We are more than a star on someone else’s flag.”

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
