“Handy-cock’s” Pot Kettle Politics

LibDem MP,  “Defence expert” and self-confessed teen fondler Mike Hancock thought he would offer his two cents about the tragic shooting on board the HMS Astute:

“I am surprised that this man was on a nuclear submarine, I would have thought there was tight scrutiny for our submariners, so how on earth he passed I don’t know. I will be questioning what’s going on. I feel very unsure about somebody who has an element of eccentricity about himself – by calling himself Reggie Moondogg, putting it on Facebook – joining the Navy, getting recruited to serve on a nuclear submarine and then being given a weapon to guard it. So there must be some questions about his suitability. I can’t understand how the vetting programme has let this happen.”

Frankly Guido is surprised that this man is still in Parliament, he would have thought there was tight scrutiny for our politicians, so how on earth Hancock passed he does not know.

Does text-pest Mike “give me a chance princess” Hancock really have the audacity to accuse other people of having “an element of eccentricity about” them? And if Hancock’s staff choices are anything to go by, he’s not one to criticise vetting procedures either.

The suspected spy he employed in the Commons has landed a new job as political correspondent for Russian TV.

    this is why constituents need to recover the right to recall their MPs, something that CMD promised us. Mind you he gave a cast iron guarantee of a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty too.

      Fuck off Handycock, as a “defence” expert and I am led to understand, more than familiar with those with mental health issues, you might have been aware that every so often a member of HM Forces will have a breakdown of some type due to a multitude of pressures stresses and strains both professional and personal. Most of these type of incidents are picked up before they occur and rarely involve the discharge of firearms, deployment of other ordinance or injury, which is testament to our dedicated and professional armed forces. Your statement is testament to your ignorance of standard operating procedure, which suits me down to the ground as who knows to who, where and when you you might disclose them.
      Just to finish, fair fucks to the leader of the Council, his politics may not be my cup of tea, but he has more than earned his allowances as far as I am concerned, anyone that has disarmed someone with an SA80 carbine whilst in a small metal box that is control room of HMS Astute, deserves more than a modicum of respect.
      PS again fuck off Handycock, hope you get your day in court

      You still haven’t explained why you took it into your head to conduct a late night “security test” in the naval section of Portsmouth docks in 2006. Such a good idea, but you didn’t tell anyone in the Navy or Police about it beforehand, so all that happened is that people think there is something very dodgy about you.

        “Surprised that ‘Reggie Moondogg’ was on a nuclear submarine”. Maybe – but even more surprising that ‘Handycock’ is still appearing in Parliament despite the continuing stories of his Russian, Rumanian, and under-age connections. What about his suitability and Parliamentary vetting procedures? Where is MI5 when you need it? Why haven’t they chased this one through? Never mind about Katya being a possible spy – what about the long record of Handycock himself as a Russian supporter and go-between? Time to get hold of those Russian photos and publish the long-awaited evidence.

    Mong Brown's admission of mistakes says:

    Brown’s utterly pathetic admission that he made mistakes on banks is too little too late. The c unt didn’t say that before the election or after the election. It’s taken almost a year since losing the election for the arsehole to take any responsibility and he chose to do it in a speech in the US, not in the actual country he owes an apology. This vile, vile creature, who appeared on GMTV to tell us if he lost the election he and his beard would do charity work and that “I’m not interested in business or making money, I want to do something that does good”, is constantly flying around the world – and in the process bullying a pregnant woman to give up her seat – flogging his cv in the desperate hope of getting himself a job, even though he already has a job as an MP which he hasn’t been doing!

    I didn’t think it was possible to hate this creature even more but I do. He is beyond despicable. He is a horrific excuse for a human being.

    Short story: There’s this lunatic who should have been in psychiatric care but wasn’t as there wasn’t enough. He was put on jobseeker’s allowance but a clampdown on benefit scroungers ends up in a cracking job on a nuclear submarine. The staff at the jobcentre are delighted as now another scrounger has a job they get to keep theirs. Cutbacks mean vetting for weapons use isn’t good enough so they give him a gun. After six months locked in a submarine they tell him more cutbacks mean he has to do another six months straight away. Faced with the shame of not even being allowed to be a scrounger, the lunatic takes the gun he shouldn’t have and starts shooting people he shouldn’t have been allowed work alongside in the wrong place he should’ve been locked up in.

    Astute?

    The word seems to sum up everything that means the opposite nowadays:

    Some recent “Astute” moves:

    1) Setting up the FSA to oversee & regulate UK Banks

    2) Declaring UK is “unable” to limit EU migration (without regard that dark green, amorphous, wet body that surrounds the Island – known as the Sea).

    3) Using pensioner-savers to subsidise juicy homeowner mortgages

    4) Nick Clegg condemning Nepotism

    5) Putting a big, small “i” on the cover of a daily newspaper

    I’m sure these are just a few examples of countless others………….

    Frankly Guido I think all MPs have got together since the (on-going) expenses scandal and decided to stick together (all in it together) no matter what. The only thing to interupt their plan will be interventions like imprisonment or change of roles. They hate the public and feel ridiculous amongst them. They no longer share a language or a culture with us. Backs to the wall, they remain stupidly defiant

    Mike Hancock is a man of the utmost probity, intellect and judgement, and I am proud to be one of his strongest supporters. These rumours of his consorting with criminals in Portsmouth are not true, these men are all businessmen and do not launder drug profits through property development. In any case, they are all major contributors to the Liberal Democrat Party, and therefore are above reproach. The scurrilous complaints about his sexual proclivities are also not true – a colourful sex life is a prerequisite for membership of the LibDems. Finally, look how far Mike has come in life, with absolutely no education whatsoever. This man is a credit to the Liberal Democrats and should have been a candidate for the Leadership.

      Good to hear from you Jeremy…. but still seeing things through rose-coloured glasses as in the old days. Handycock would have been a more credible leader of the party in the seventies – when flares and bouffant hair-dos were all the rage – but sadly in those days the electorate insisted on a reasonable level of education, integrity and manners – so that counted him out. Despite your assertions that Handycock’s business friends are no longer laundering their drug profits through the Portsmouth Planning system, many of us are still convinced that this is the case.
