Gordon Lurking, Still Shirking Working

Rumours flitted on EyeSpy.MP that Gordon was on the parliamentary estate, Twittering politicos said he was seen at the end of the chamber during questions to Culture Media Sport Secretary Jeremy Hunt.

So he was, lurking briefly by the Speaker’s chair, greeting a few TaliBrown cronies before he went off to do violence to a keyboard banging out another 10,000 words of his “I Was Right” memoir.

Guido has yet to check the record, but suspects Brown did not bother to vote late last night on the Education Bill…

        Talking of ‘rubbing it’ whats with this picture of mandelson?

        Having had some visual training, I am aware that these politriksions are very surcumspect when it comes to chooseing which images they display of themselves.

        Now I can appreciate that this image of him toying with his tie, is what might be seen as ‘active’ as opposed to a passive mandelson. But dig a little deeper into the Fruedian imagery of the tie being a phalic symbol and it becomes what to all intents is mandelson playing with a dick, possably his, and therfore masterbating, or some sort of homosexual cypher of nob-fondler!

        Whater ever the message he wants to get accross I find the picture thouroughly nausiating and allways hurry to read the posts so that I can get by it quickly.

      What a thieving Hunt – hope his constituents up in Scotland start shouting about his non-performance as their MP. Mind you, it’s par for the course for him – starting off with his abuse of the benefits system when he was a student & continuing through & up to his abuse of the MP expenses system while PM.

            Looks more like an aircraft dumping fuel to me.

            This is common practice in order to reduce landing weight. Many aircaft have max landing weights that are significantly lower than their max take off weights, so may have to shed several tons of fuel before landing.

            Another common situation is that a flight may be diverted to an airfield with a short runway. Again the pilot needs to shed as much weight as possible. The fuel is dumped at high altitude to ensure that it evaporates before reaching the ground, giving the ‘chemtrails’ so beloved of conspiracy theorists.

        I think that’s the point. Admission of Turkey to the EU would further weaken its centralising, ‘Holy Roman Empire Mark II’ aspect.

        At the same time, it would give Europe a permanent ally in the Middle East. The Turks have held out more or less on their won against the mediaevalising forces of Islam in the Middle East. As it is, Erdogan is leaning that way, but membership of the EU would give a boost to secular, modernising, democratic people in Turkey.

            ‘Bury our heads in the sand’ would be allowing 80+ million more Muslims right of entry into Europe and thinking it’ll have no adverse effect on the rest of us. It’s precisely that attitude that has gotten Western Europe into the mess it’s in.

            But as always, it won’t be the political and business classes that’ll be affected by their grandiose scheming. Allowing millions of Turks into Europe is preciely a zero sum game to wankers like Wavie Davie.

            Instead of worrying about Istanbul and Edirne becoming like Syria, start worrying about parts of Europe becoming more like the Middle East, North Africa or Pakistan.

    Why on earth should he have stuck around for the vote? This was a vote for ACADEMIES IN ENGLAND, nothing to do with Gordon Brown or any of the other non-English MPs. This is the problem we have had for the last 13 years. They should not have been in the Chamber let alone have a vote. When our last Scottish Constiuency PM spoke of his plans for education, health and crime, he meant only England as Scotland decides these things for itself as does Wales. Bizarrly he had no control over any of these things in his own constituency. When is somebody going to start standing up for the English. Do English MPs have a say on Scottish education – no. Thanks to the Scottish MPs voting on English only matters, English university students pay tuition fees and end up with huge debts whilst Scottish students do not. The last Government treated England with contempt denying it the same self representation and identity as the other countries of the UK in the devolution process and the Tory party even though it mostly only the English who voted for them choose to say nothing about this. When are the people of England going to wake up?
