Exclusive: Hancock Has Resigned from the Defence Committee

After specultion earlier that he was about to be sacked, defence sources just confirmed that Hancock resigned this morning from the Defence Select Committee. Jumped before pushed…

UPDATE: Technically a committee member has to be replaced by the House on a House order but Guido understands Hancock has got the ball rolling to get this going…

UPDATE II:

UPDATE III: In all fairness the blogger who got the first whiff of this story was Geoffrey Brooking.

          While Handycock is wasting our time…..

          Despite record low interest rates, printing new money and other emergency measures, governments had not yet addressed the underlying problem of overspending that was at the root of the financial crisis, Sir Mervyn King warned. The consequences threatened to “inflict pain on everyone”, he said.

          WE ARE FUXKED

          Cut spending.

    Conservatives ordered to vote against EU referendum
    David Cameron next week will order Conservative MPs European Union membership.

    To: Mr. X XXXXXXXXX, MP, House of Commons.

    Dear Mr. xxxxxxxxxxx,

    Mr. Cameron is trying to rig the result of the debate, before it has even taken place, which makes a sham of it.

    I have lent my vote to the Conservatives in everything, for a long time –
    above all, to keep the bloody Socialists out. I voted yes in 1975 on the basis of joining a trading bloc. The issue has altered hugely since then.

    Mr. Hague is parroting his case for remaining in the European Union but has not substantiated any of the arguments which he is putting forward. He is, of course, entitled to his opinion but will not, or cannot, say, why we should not be permitted to express ours. What has he to fear?

    Either Mr. Cameron goes, or I do. The man is rivalling the unlamented T. Blair in his prevarication. I am sorry to be so direct.

    I hope you will vote with your conscience and mine.

    Yours, etc.,

    The Arrogance of Chuka says:

    Chuka just told a lie live on the Daily politics. When he was speaking his microphone was picking up a mobile phone and drowing him out. The Production gallery asked Brillo to sort it out so Brillo stopped Chuka and asked him if his phone was witched on and Chuka said no. Brillo was having none of that and toldhim to switch it off as the sound engineers knew that the source was Chuka’s phone, again the pompous Chuka denied his phone was on. Then as the interview moved over to Spelman we saw Chuka reaching imto his pocket and no more mobile phone interference.

    Why did he lie? Why did he not simply say I don’t think it is on but I’ll check?
