Cameron’s Comedy Turn

While 10,000 kids smash up Whitehall outside, Cameron was entertaining the Lobby lunch, the first PM to do so in 31 years. It must have been a good speech for devout Dave-hater Kevin Maguire to announce that “Cameron witty, smooth, confident, clear and direct in answering questions at today’s press gallery lunch. Impressive”.

Guido could hear the laughter from the cellar. Rory Bremner, warming up, declared “Cameron and Clegg have no mandate (for tuition fees) the only one with a man date is Hague”. However it was Dave’s crack about Simon Burns really tickled him. Apparently once when Bercow told Burn “I’m not happy” the Tory Health Minister quipped “Well, which one are you then?”

UPDATE: Paul Waugh has more of the jokes, but comedy aside DC gave the clearest hint yet he wants David Laws back in the Cabinet “soon”. You can bet on just how soon over at Smarkets where prices on Laws to return have jumped…

    Right, forget school, you’re not going to see dawn. A human kidney goes for $100K in the US. 3,000 demonstrators x 2 kidneys each = $600m. That’s a bit of Labour’s de*bt-mountain sorted.

    the old Dufflebag says:

    Thatcher was lucky that she had pretty much a blank canvas to work on as there had been virtually nothing radically new in British politics since the development of the welfare state after the second world war. Whilst reviled by many she did apply a whole new way of doing things..turned many situations upside down and shook the economy back into life….changed the dominance of the unions… brought in the denationalisation programme and gave ‘right to buy’.

    These three elements alone were enough to put her in the history books…add the rest and she stands tall. No prime minister could achieve so much these days as there are not the opportunities to be really radical in a reforming sense as most of the ground has been covered.

    Who Gives A Fuck says:

    I don’t actually think 10,000 students are smashing up London. Many hundreds/thousands are being held against their will for 4 hours now in the cold London night. Could be one of your children??? Are you sayiug no one has the right to protest???

    But the violence perpetrated by the authorities towards the British population was always bound to be challenged in some form or other. The complacent majority in this country have allowed their lives to be taken away and their futures ruined. Let’s make the right connections shall we rather than admire from afar the ‘jokery’ of the politicians – who frankly don’t give a fuck about the population

    One of my sons went on the last student demo and I warned him it would be hijacked by troublemakers and turn violent. He peacefully made his point, kept away from the violence and then went to the pub before catching the coach back to uni.
    If he’d gone on this demo and got ” kettled” by cops I would tell him it was tough shit. I certainly wouldn’t be moaning about his treatment by the authorities. These protestors are being treated with kid gloves compared to some of the violent scenes I’ve witnessed on demos before.

    No more broken promises and cast iron promises wants an expense fiddler back in Cabinet. Almost as good as his pledge to stick up for UK in Europe, the Eurocrats got a 3.7% pay rise today- Baroness Ashton got £9,00 extra to her £241,000 salary. May’s speech on immigration was laughable. He is starting to make Gordon look good.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
