Hancock’s Lolita Spy Girl Asked the Wrong Questions

As Mike Hancock’s young, candle loving, blonde faces deportation for spying, Guido thought he better have a look at what sort of “research” she had been doing for her amorous boss. A look into what Hancock has been asking in the House recently certainly raises eyebrows…

Polly seems silent about this tax dodging…

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”



cynic says:

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?
