        Such a shame…

        I like Liam Fox, but his actions here are inexcusable for a man in his position and actually border on utter stupidity. When in public life, one should always keep one’s catamite at arms length.

        So, what do we reckon – gone by next Friday?

          Not sure about this one, maybe there’s more to this. Why would he take such a risk when he would have known the Labour attack dogs would be out. Sonn be time to announce Tom Watson’s dirty big secret!

          • Anonymous says:

            From the stories going around it seems Fox and his wife have separate life. We should need to know whether his marriage is real?

          • All the fun of a lynching without the mess says:

            Once he’s quit Parliament for being a liar, who really cares what sort of a family he spends more time with? I don’t.

          • Clarke K. says:

            I think it’s not just Labour’s attack dogs.
            Any conservative minister in the Tory Party should be watching their back, the Fabians are well established now.

          • adviser says:

            Fux got married to have a pop at Tory leadership

          • Nemo says:

            I think that is probably true after all Gordoon got married late on, so did William but neither were elected anyway, I think Grocer Ted was the only bachelor in fairly recent times to become PM.

          • Quite right Nemo. The suggestion I was a homosexual was also quite prevalent at the time – but in my day the rumours did not originate from inside the MoD. Hee! Hee! Hee!

          • Jimmy says:

            We must be careful about jumping to conclusions. I understand that in conservative circles it is traditional for an older, married man to take a young impressionable and academically average Edinburgh University graduate under his wing and help him on his way. These arrangements are, of course, entirely innocent and you should be ashamed of yourselves for your filthy minds.

          You’ll have to ask Dr Fox’s little friend that one. Can be very painful and takes ages to heal, so I hear.

            I understand it’s a little mole. One can never be too careful about them – nasty habit of turning cancerous.

          • Peter Carter-Fuck says:

            The trick is to use lots of KY. Gay Gordon the Grim Gurner never did, he was too mean to buy any, hence poor little Edwina Millipede’s weird appearance. Anyone would look odd after a session of the clunking fist.

      That would not do for today’s politicians why do you think they have so many get out clauses in legislation, acts of parliament look like Swiss cheeses – full of holes

        In my long experience, I have found that the teller of untruths is fundamentally debased as a human being whether they are found out or not, dear.
        On that basis, I have a little confession to make:
        My moniker is somewhat outdated and I am now eighty three and three quarters.

        Gays rather like p*e*e*d*o’s do tend to cover each others backs and sympathise with the self inflicted failings of fellow shitchute munching colleagues inordinately. Anyway Fox is a complete c*nt and hypocrite whichever way you look at the limp wristed member.

    The poet lariat says:

    There was a gay tory called Fox,
    Whose career was on course for the rocks.
    The defence of the realm
    With him at the helm,
    Was less about weapons
    Than cocks.

    The bigger issue here surely is whether they can find anyone full of their own sense of self-importance to replace him.

      All the fun of a lynching without the mess says:

      He has turned out to be unsuited for public office due to basic dishonesty. If he cared about any of the stuff you say he believes in, or even his own reputation, he would have gone about his life by being an honest man and thus denied his political enemies the opportunities they can now take.

    • 45
      I Remember You Hoo says:

      Undoubtedly Dave will fill Fox’s position with an identikit SDP socialist-lite, tory poseur, that’s a given. However, claiming Fox is anything but a self regarding poseur and fraud is a bit of a stretch. Other than moan a little about our absorbtion into the fascist EU superstate, what has he actually done to prevent it? From where I see it, precious little.

        adviser says:

        Eton tick, Oxford tick, wet and socialist lite tick, wanky name like Roderick James Nugent Stewart tick, insult constituents tick. ‘Rory’ Fuckwit Stewart MP Penrith and Borders to be Min of Def. Any offers?

    A. Knuckledragger says:

    To be honest, I think my outrage valve burst some time ago when it comes to the behaviour of our MPs and I just can’t be arsed to get in a flap about whatever it is Fox is supposed to have done.

    Isn’t the economy in a bit of a mess ? Aren’t the Tories chucking out members for daring to agree with the EDL ? What shit have Ed Balls and rising twat Chukka come out with this week ? Chukka was on top knobber form on Radio 5 earlier this week.

    gildedtumbril says:

    What a silly huhne fox is. One cannot help but wonder whether he belongs to the Butch 14 Pint Hague Society.
    I am beginning to wonder if there is a single straight in parliament ? Or is every member blessed with a beard or in the case of horrendously white creatures such as harriet hormone, blessed with a eunuch?
    And, lately, one suspects that all’straights’ at the bbc,(if you can find any) are really quite bent.

    Sir Reginald Titbrain [Decd.] says:

    Quite understandably the Labour Party are milking this for all it is worth, but my feeling is that, party advantage aside, none of the politicians think this is a serious matter, since it is part of normal behaviour.

    Not in respect of Fox, just consider as a generality.

    MP has boyfriend/mistress/ nubile slavic spy who he allows to cash in on his influence and generally feather their nests at taxpayers expense, while setting up dodgy deals with wealthy unsavoury third parties to their, rather than the taxpayer’s advantage.

    One metric [good, eh?] is the HWE.

    The HME [Housing Worth Escalator] is the ratio of the worth of their present house compared to the hovel they had when they started up the greasy slope.

    Accepted figures:

    5. Total failure- cannon fodder- dick head too interested in constituents.
    10. ‘Honest’ plodder not really up to the cut and thrust of troughing.
    15. Shows promise but needs to ditch the remaining vestiges of decency.
    200. Epic performance, reached only by a few.

    CYNICAL OLD MAN says:

    I wonder who Wavey Davey has in mind for Fox’s job? Another one of his wet lettuce Bullingdon mates or a Cleggy no-mark? Either way it’ll be another overpromoted fucking amateur who’ll do what Cameron will tell him. No room for independent thinkers in Davey’s government.

    I wish there was a backbencher with some backbone who could mount a leadership challenge to the Heir to Heath. I have a feeling that Dave might not be as popular within the party as he thinks he is.

    Gweedo, where were you on this story the last few months?

    Dead tree press were on this way before you, the guardian were on it back in August…. You only seem to touch on it when it became unavoidable, ‘gossip and tittle tattle’ on this subject has been rife for a good while

    Btw is it a reflection on the quality of discourse on this site that the last comment of the day you deemed worthy of the title is now getting on for two weeks old?

      You have to be careful of the source of this story. There is very little evidence but a lot of malice from the reporters.

      In this day and age only an Upper Class male can have a true male friend.

      The evidence is Liam Fox is not Upper Class.

      • 81
        non believer says:

        I’m not talking about whether he’s gay which has been discussed for getting on for 7 years in the papers , I’m talking about the readily available facts about his relationship with Mr Werrity – his being a health consultant whilst his friend Dr Fox was shadow health secretary, before becoming a defence ‘consultant’ at the time his friend Dr Fox became a Defence secretary, before he brokered a meeting in the middle east which dragged him into getting involved in a blackmail lawsuit.

        btw you’re very much on the wrong site if you’re concerned about gay smears with little evidence

      Kitchener of Khartoum says:

      Top quality brown-nosing, and I should know.

      We must also have a change in the titles and honorifics now being applied to the turds that float to the top of this sea of scum, which, since it is made up of Blue Tories, Red Labour and that other Yellow bunch, appears the colour of a sea of shit in Bombay.

      Fox is never “Right” in any understood sense, and the application of “Honourable” to this particular sack of ordure makes mockery of the English language.

    Lucy Harker says:

    No “ifs” no “buts” – Fox and his wife should be evicted from their free flat, and denied the right to claim any kind of state benefit, social housing, or medical treatment for a minimum of three years – and longer if there is any actual evidence against them.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
