Temper, Temper Tom

This is from last night, but Guido was waiting for decent-quality footage to appear online of his old mucker Tom Watson losing it in the Commons and managing to break pretty much all established Parliamentary protocol in one sentence. It’s fair to say he doesn’t like Michael Gove very much:

Note the apology was only out of “deference” to Bercow, who for obvious reasons wouldn’t like the term pip-squeak.

      He’s on the Daily Politics today talking about the Commons wine cellar.

      No doubt he’s been researching the subject well judging by the video above

        Perhaps Gove should refer to ‘Mr Arbuckle’ in his next response to this circumferencially-challenged individual.

          • Oiky Gove says:

            Gove is a fuckwit

            lots of unhappy ambitious Conservative MPs think they should have his job after yet more of his colossal stupidity

          North, but not Scotland says:

          Why not just call him a fat cnut, the squeeker would have to say “I just heard you call the member a fat cnut”. Gove would then say “Out of blah blah.. I withdraw calling him a fat cnut. Or is it fair comment?

    Please God make Bercow go away or vanish up his own self-importance.
    It seems obvious that he regards the he MPs as mere adornments to his beauty – their errors a chance for the world to witness his competence and wit. Oh please, please please God.

    Grumpy Old Man says:

    A miserable pipsqeak seeking to tar one of the most anti-socialist MP’s in the House with his own brush. Leaving personalities aside, Mr Gove has taken on the most openly partisan socialist Department in the entire CS. I would seriously consider whether Mr Gove has been set up by elements in his department over the cessation of Labour’s unaffordable capital spending programme. Even Maggie failed to break the hold of the Left in Education. Mr Gove has a herculean task, and should be supported by anybody who believes in a liberal education as the right of all UK children.


    • 37
      Unsworth says:

      Yes. And Gove should be sacking one or two of the fuckers pour encourager les autres. Why did his Civil Servants allow this to happen? Are they incompetent or malicious?


    • 43
      Hiram Holiday says:

      Agreed, GOM. And the tragedy of socialists in education is that they understand neither socialism nor education.

      A truly socialist education system would set standards to encourage aspiration and to be useful to the state. Also, it would give equal allocation of resources to all rather than ignoring the able and wasting time and money on idle morons.

      Socialism, as interpreted by the fat arsehole, is guided by two principles…

      1. Entrenched hatred for anybody who was borne luckier than them.

      2. Pulling up ladders as they clamber up the path to riches and power.

      OTOH, he is a fat thug with an equally balanced pile of chips on each shoulder.


    • 57
      Nick2 says:

      Agreed. But I hope that in the meantime Guido (or another co-conspirator) posts a fuller extract of the Watson/Gove interchange – Gove looked angrier than I’ve ever seen him and I suspect his rejoinder would have been fun to see too.


    • 68
      The Bottle Fed Triplet says:

      If I was Gove I would be kicking the arse of a certain civil servant from one end of the corridor to the other and then reallocating him to an overseas posting in South Georgia counting penguins.

      Gove didn’t make this mistake, he was fed duff info from a penpusher, possibly one of those that turned out to “applaud” Peter Mandelson when he “returned” to government.


      • 107
        Thomas Aquinas says:

        Yes, but Gove was boasting about how on top of his brief he was (Ohh errr missus). Obviously not.

      Nothing wrong with that.

    Mr Plum says:

    Does any parent give a shit whether they have a new school building, quality well qualified teachers yes, poncy building no


    • 102
      Unsworth says:

      Exactly, but the whole scheme was a con. The more stupid parents (i.e. Labour voters) believed that new buildings = high quality teaching. The favoured parts of the building trade (i.e. Contributors to Labour) believed that financial support of Labour = bonzer contracts to build cheap ‘education’ sheds which could be sold at extortionate prices.

      Which of these two groups would be right? You have twenty minutes to answer this question, but if you finish before you may leave the exam hall.

      Oh, don’t all rush at once.

      1. why did labour promise them things it never had the money for so it would never happen?

      3. tom do some work.


    • 73
      The Bottle Fed Triplet says:

      Listen Cock, the desire to learn and the ability to stimulate an interest in the subject are two pre-requisites for children becoming educated. The buildings are not as important as you think.

      In Kenya, where they learn in mud huts and almost have to share the pencil, children leave school able to write and spell English to a much higher level than in the UK.

      In India, they didn’t have pocket calculators and found much higher levels of numeracy than the UK. So they banned calculators for all children under 14. This simple action has produced a vast number of highly competent mathematicians. So much so that they are exporting them along with programmers.

      I am not saying we should allow British children to have sub-standard accommodation, I am saying that the basic principles of teaching should be in place before we worry about the fancy bits.

      Oh fuck off cock you lying piece of shit. If any money needs spending on education, it’s to improve teaching standards, not do up buildings. Leaking roofs will still be repaired – there’s a big difference between essential maintenance and rebuilding, but I guess that simple fact of life doesn’t suit your propaganda does it.

      Aye…you did that well you are facing 13 years of opposition. Actually, with the boundary changes coming in and a paucity of talent in your ranks, probably more like a lifetime of opposition, assuming the British public don’t suffer mass collective amnesia.

      The only thing Labour has going for it at present is that Del Piero is shaggable (as long as she is gagged – that accent is a serious turn off).

      Alex says:

      A boom based on cheap credit and a property bubble that caused millions to carelessly borrow money against the equity of a home whose price would and now has dropped does not constitute prosperity in the minds of any one other than morons like yourself.

    Blue Lady says:

    This bully is typical of Brown’s clique. Just think this mob (Brown, Balls and Watson, etc) were in charge of running England. They just can’t accept they’re not in power any more but can’t/won’t accept the dire mess they’ve left this country in. Don’t these Nuliebore morons realise there’s no money left, not in England anyway although I suspect the devolved Governments/Assemblies won’t suffer the bulk of the cuts in the same way as England. Why have we not got an English parliament standing up for us in the same way Alex Salmond does for Scotland? I am digressing but we should all be demanding equality with the rest of the U.K. which means our own parliament and then hopefully, we wouldn’t have to suffer the Nuliebore bully boys ever again.

    P.s. The BBC News Channel are in their element. They are running the story of Gove having to apologise literally every few minutes.

      The Toady Programme this morning had Gove and Watson in focus but totally slanted toward Labour, and then had the gall to have one of their “correspondent’s” rant on and on about Gove’s problems and that more mistakes are to come. Watson was also on but I switched the radio off in disgust so I do not know if his “pipsqueak” comment was on the programme.
      Then they had the Work Institute on about improving the private sector, guess where? the Labour heartland of the northern regions. What a loonie left so-called think tank knows about work, or even the private sector, is well beyond my ken.
      Time for BBC reform and restructure with P45’s to Naughty and Quinn for a start.

    ‘I am grateful to the hon. Gentleman for his question; it gives me the opportunity once again to apologise to his constituents and to other parents and teachers in Sandwell for the confusion that was caused by the mistake that I made on Monday. I understand the passion that he brings to the issue, and I understand how hard he fights for his constituents. I shall be very happy to go to West Bromwich and apologise to those who have been misled by the mistake that has been made. I am more than happy to do so. As I said earlier, the mistake was mine and mine alone, and I am happy to acknowledge it.’

    What a nice, considerate, responsible man Mr Gove appears to be. It’s so refreshing to have real gentlemen in government now as opposed to Labour’s hired thugs and troglodytes.

From the disproportion response made by Watson, you could be forgiven for thinking Gove had slaughtered innocent children in Iraq.

      Jan says:

      I am outraged that Nu-Liebor consituencies have had a disproportionate amount of new-builds.Prezza’s constituency did alright out of the now-halted school building programme.So too did Sheffield.I cannot imagine that ALL the schools in those areas needed rebuilding.Surely the oldest schools ie Victorian built should have been given priority no matter whose consituency they happened to be in?I was looking at the list for London and two schools where I taught had their programmes cancelled.One was post-war,the other built in the 1880s. The Victorian-built one has a 1960s addition but it sometimes takes 15 minutes to get from one building to the other when you factor in the mass of pupils moving between buildings.This school deserved to be rebuilt.It has produced some fine men who have done incredibly well given their very humble beginnings.They have contributed greatly to our society.
      I see there is a new flashy unit in Lambeth for ‘disaffected youths’ (haha).They’ve got state-of-the-art facilities.It’s ironic that these pupils should be rewarded with a brand new building and yet pupils who are diligent and hardworking should have to put up with crap.Still,isn’t this typical of Nu-Liebor that they reward the feckless troubklemakers in our society at the expense of others?The pupils at both schools are from the same ethnic minorities and same chaotic background and the same area. Many boys I worked with had huge problems, escaping civil war and tyranny yet they were a joy to work with. I can imagine that some pupils might want to get excluded so that they can attend the brand new flashy unit. Who would blame them?

    What the f*ck did they think newlabour were doing for 13 years? They were busy placing their socialist stooges everywhere in the civil service and No10 in particular.
    Every government department is a labour employment club and the tories are being assisted by civil servants who were placed there to sabotage them, labour high command knows government business before ministers do.
    The coalition will limp from one leak and planned sabotage to another like a Laurel & Hardy comedy minus the laughs.
    Every civil servant should have been replaced the second they got into power but the coalition muppets seem to labour under the illusion that the civil service would not be so beastly and unfair, bunch of witless muppets.

    Is this the same Tom Watson that plotted to get rid of Blair and gave us Brown ? Watson can’t seem to get it into that t…. skull of his that if his government hadn’t spent all the money then Gove wouldn’t be cancelling the school building programme. As for Watson’s enthusiam to sell off the commons wine cellar why didn’t the Labour government sell it off. Oh of course his mate Brown was busy selling off our gold at rock bottom prices !!
