Gobby Saved by Twitter, Serjeant at Arms Humiliated

Good news for the BBC’s Paul Lambert following the ridiculous decision by the Serjeant at Arms to ban him after he filmed her embarrassing failure to prevent the breach of security during the testimony of the Murdochs. Gobby’s pass has been restored after Louise Mensch raised a point of order regarding the banning of the BBC’s Gobby and a Twitter campaign to #SaveGobby took off. Why on earth was he banned in the first place? This is a public building, paid for at great expense by the public. You would have thought after the battle for opening up MPs’ expenses they would have learnt. Parliamentarians are our servants, they work for us and the Serjent at Arms would do well to remember who is the boss…

    Of Course A Beeboid Overlord Was Going To Be Saved says:

    Except Gobby isn’t a member of the public, he’s a Beeboid hack who broke quite sensible rules. Admittedly his TV pictures showed a violent Labour Party member being read their rights, so it ain’t all bad.

    It was however sickening to see various former Labour ministers who restricted the right of protest while in power shitting on in the #savegobby hashtag like they have any fucking moral authority whatsoever. They are absolutely disgusting hypocrites.

    East India Company Wallah says:

    Indeed it is a public building funded by the taxpayer and no Gobby should not have been banned unless he was party to,or promoting the juvenile prank which occurred,why did serjeant at arms have to rush to summary justice?what was the hurry?

    Truly the elephant in the room has got to be the BBC which cannot accept that the government the people have chosen is not labour,this would suggest that the broadcaster has no respect for the government the rest of us voted for.

    Does the BBC think it is entitled to lobby for regime change?

    Does the BBC think it is more powerful than the elected government,is that not anti-democratic?

What has he done wrong he works for his family. Life’s unfair when you look at the MPs and others like them who rely on my friend working all these days. I am sad!

Look at Vaz and what he has to say at the moment about the police; who in the hell is he to make judgements about anyone’s morals, honour or justice etc. This creepy rotten little twat fiddled his expenses to buy a huge second home at our expense when there was not need for him to have one- it made him a millionaire FFS. How about the passport scam a few years ago?? Why on earth is he an MP let alone sitting on the Home Affairs select committee. An undeserving floating turd in the toilet of Westminster.

    Dear Tom Watson


    On the 19th July 2011 News Corporation representatives Rupert and James Murdoch appeared before a select committee to discuss allegations of phone hacking and alleged misconduct prior to the closure of the News of the World.

    During the meeting, a member of the public gallery attacked Mr Murdoch (senior) and his wife Wendy leapt to his defence.

    On this occassion, we beleive you misled the committee. You stated that Wendy had “a good left hook”, but in actual fact she twatted the prick in question with her RIGHT HAND.

    Given that you have misled parliament and do not know left from right (or the reasonably expected cost of yearly substenance) we believe you should stand down from your position of MP and Chief Numa-Numa-guy looka-like.

    Brown’s labour won a million fewer votes in 2010 than John Major in 1997. Hardly the sign of a minor defeat. A million Fewer votes than Major is a MASSIVE THRASHING!!!

    IN fact, had Brown won the same number of votes as Major in 1997, then Brown would have remained Prime Minister. For Cameron to get any majority, he would have had to get almost as many votes as Blair had had in 1997 or 2001. As it was this country voted more strongly for a conservative majority in 2010, than they did for a labour one in 2005!

    The difference in the number of seats is not down to the country not voting for Cameron, but the fact that we have a massively corrupt and biased seating boundary system which is very heavily biased in labour’s favour.

    And it has also emerged tonight that Tom Watson MP misled Parliament by claiming that The Prime Minister had not replied to his letter informing him of allegations against Mr Coulson.

    The fact is that there were no serious or reasonable new allegations and no new evidence in that letter and In fact, the Prime Minister did reply to Tom Watson’s letter, meaning that he’s guilty of misleading Parliament. Here is the reply, just released by Downing Street:

    20 October 2010
    Mr Tom Watson MP

    Thank you for your letter of 4 October.

    The Standards and Privileges Committee and the Home Affairs Committee have both announced inquiries. The Home Secretary has made an oral statement to the House.

    In addition the police have said previously that they will investigate whether there is new evidence to consider. Mr Coulson has made himself available should they wish to speak to him.


    Mr Watson has some serious explaining to do.

    Just been watching a replay – did Cameron mispeak or did he mean to say that Ed Milliband was the only political leader with a former News International employee with a “cloud in his head” (see Guido pictorials)?

    Piers "Morgan" Moron says:

    The current runt has grown on me over time. He does come out with occasional funny quips, such as this evening,

    “Point of order Mr Speaker [Gerald “yawn” Kaufmann]: is it in order for a minister to say something at the dispatch box, and then two minutes later to return to the dispatch box and deny that he has said it?”.

    Bercow responds: “It’s entirely in order, and has been happening for hundreds of years”.

    Airey Belvoir says:

    Yes – it also occurred to me that Murdoch could have played a blinder, after they apologised for the attack, by saying; “As we know,bad things can sometimes happen in the best-regulated organisations, and I’m sure that you had no prior knowledge of this planned assault.”

    My wife has long since complained about my ‘ paranoia ‘ about the BBC. Tonight, after this last week, she now understands. We have reached new lows today. Unbelievable bias that makes you ashamed to live in a country that allows it. The biggest threat to our democracy is the BBC. So sad.

    I don't need no doctor says:

    It’s both contemptible and beyond belief the hypocrisy shown by labour. For years under their governance phone hacking was rife and they did nothing about it. Why then does the BBC focus purely on Cameron and Coulson if not to support both their own and labours agenda, namely to get rid of Cameron and the coalition.
    Ed Miliband is an opportunist hypocrite of the lowest kind. He has only jumped on the Dowler bandwagon to save his own skin. Dispicable shyster that he is.
    We can only hope that all of this comes back to bite labour hard.
    If the Chilcot enquiry is honest labour will get slaughtered. Oh what spin will we get from labour and their ally the BBC then.

    Sadly these decisions are outside the control of mere MPs; it’s all within the domain of “the parliamentary authorities”… nobody really knows who they are.

    SnappyUK says:

    Further to “Vile Labour Slag…” above, Milibland’s ideas on media plurality will lead to more competition, which is normally a good thing, but without the economies of scale and corss-subsidy options that a large meeja organisation has, the grasp for profit will increase, tending to further erode the hacks’ integrity in the rush to get an exclusive and sell more papers.

    As for the BBC, they may have more than their fair share of lefties on the payroll, but I regard them as several orders of magnitude more trustworthy than the likes of Murdoch, Desmond, Morgan and Dacre.

    And a note to the OP, I think you missed a C out of your description of Speaker Bercow.

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.”
