Où est Clegg?

It seems Clegg is taking this fake row thing a little too far…

UPDATE: Cleggies tell the Sun that Nick doesn’t “want to be a distraction”. Yeah right…

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Maybe he is plotting with Vince?

    Dave Harrison says:

    Vince is there, set next to Ken Clarke. Ominous.

      Can’t wait for GE leadership debates they will have a field day with Clegg over this. What a cowardly piece of stuff you scrape off the bottom of your shoe. Limp Dems is far to nice a phrase for them. Have a GE and combine this with a referendum NOW.

      Now we know it runs all down their Leaders back.

    Josiah Bartlett says:

    WTF is Clegg doing not attending? Your the Deputy Prime Minister, support the Government or pull out of the coallition. None of this “I’m very cross but I like my ministerial car and salary so I’m not just going to be in a huff but not actually do anything” childish bollocks.

    Even Seething Vince is there.

    Squeaker does his job for a change says:

    This is a first. Bercow told the labour front bench they were making too much noise.

    • 29
      Really? says:

      Any noise from them is too much. Miliband’s speech was truly awful; there was no clearly building attack and his silly hand signals were the sort of thing sixth form debating societies are full of. Pillock.

  7. 12
    Steve Miliband says:

    Ed is awful

      Selohesra says:

      To be fair he’s been dealt a bum hand – he has to criticize the single most popular thing any PM has done since Thatcher wopped the Argies

        Loungelizard says:

        Nobody quite understands exactly what he’s done but it’s bloody good.

      • 161
        Ein Berk(ov) says:

        Surely it is not de rigeur to ‘criticise’ anything/everything? If they like what the PM has done, why not simply say so? Criticising simply for the sake of it is daft.

    Bbc acting for Labour again says:

    Guido, regarding the previous thread, as well as calling Blinky’s people, you should also call bbc news to inquire why they didn’t include Balls in their nazi montage.

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    If this doesn’t constitute “Black Monday” I don’t know what does !!

    FTSE 100 5445.73 Down -83.48 -1.51%

      “It is the most sensual men who need to flee women and torment their bodies.”

      Mr A. P. Niss. says:

      A drop of about 10 percent would constitute a “Black Monday”.

      I hope this helps.

      If the FTSe having a bad day on the continent its even worse. So the french/German agreement has not gone down well with the markets who can spot a fudge when they see it. The Veto was right

      FTSE 100 5440.96 Down -88.25 -1.60%
      Dax 5813.67 Down -173.04 -2.89%

      Wendy Bendy says:

      Forget stocks – looks at the bond yields. 10-year Italy up, Ireland at 8% and Greece priced at default 32%! They don’t think much of the EU Summit. Cameron is well out of it because the euro is finished.

    • 179
      Bulldog Drummond says:

      FTSE better than the rest. As the lady said “you can’t buck the market” full stop.

    MrAngry61 says:

    Vince looks especially disgruntled on the front bench atm.

  11. 16
    Sandra says:

    Quizzling Clegg is probably taking orders from the 4th Reich.

    Clegg, Heseltine & Clarke – EU traitors.

    When we free ourselves every EU traitor that wants to surrender their British passport & leave for exile should be actively encouraged to do so.

    £50 million quid a day in payments to the EUSSR- yet we have British pensioners freezing to death here in the UK.

    Billy Bowden is the greatest umpire ever ! says:

    Ed, the voters disagree with you.

    It seems Ed is going to campiagn on a Pro EU ticket.

      That’s the spirit Jimmy, we want to see more empty spaces when the weirdy beardies are conveniently not seen in the next election.

    • 49
      Are all Labour supporters as thick as you? says:

      If Cameron’s a lightweight for vetoing a Franco/German stitch-up, what does that make Ed “I’ll sign it! I’ll sign it!” Miliband?

  21. 29 says:

    Milliband yet again displays his lack of grasp of financial matters – no doubt well briefed by Ubergauleiter Balls.

  22. 32
    John says:

    He’s sitting in the room out back, sucking his thumb.
    Welcome to lake Nobody Cares….

  23. 33
    Labour flounder says:

    That was a rollicking good performance by Cameron. Miliband’s attempt to look tough was hilarious. His “No, Mr Spe-aker, I’m not finished with him yet” was like a boy scout trying to act like a marine.

      will says:

      Ed balls is worth at least 20 seats to the tories. lets hope they stick with him.

      • 130
        Grumpy Old Man says:

        EdxEd is worth an election to the Tories. BTW, Mrs Balls gave a distinctly underwhelming performance at Home Office Q,s this pm. Outshone by Theresa of all people. Another Labour leadership candidate sinks slowly back into the swamp. The next lLabour PM is probably still in a private prep school somewhere.

    • 144
      Old Blue Eyes says:

      Watching Ed in action can anyone seriously believe that he could win a General Election.

    • 160
      Chiswick Fresh-Horses says:

      Even less convincing than Blackadder’s bravado when challenging hairy Scots thug McAngus to a duel. “Haven’t finished with him yet” indeed. (“ah, ye’re all right. Tell ye the truth, a’m interested in the wugs. Specially the one with bird shit on it.”)

    Clegg is a C.U.N.T…………Call a referendum on the EU, in or out……. Followed by a general election, get rid of the Libdums once and for all…….

    Looks like Camby has seen how the polls are going, that other flat nosed person is really out of his depth.

    A labour MP currently speaking about incompetence, well good to see someone talking about a subject they are experts in.

    So much for leading from the front. I was trying to remember who specialised in McCavity routines when bad news was announced. Some fellow from Kirkaldy who seems now to have disappeared entirely ,I think. Not a career to follow…..

    Mornington Crescent says:

    From the Beeb: “Milly Dowler’s voicemail messages were “most likely” deleted automatically, says the Metropolitan Police.”

    If true, that nasty little 4×2 is going to have to do some serious apologising to the House and beyond for dancing on Dowler’s grave for his own advantage.

    Guido, please don’t let this one pass.

    Mrs Clegg (Nicholas' mummy) says:

    Dear Mr Speaker,

    Little Nicky can’t come to parliament today because those big boys from the bigger school are bullying him.

    Last night he cried himself to sleep and so he’s very tired.

    I must also complain that the boys from Eton stole his PE kit and so he won’t we doing any games either.

        Key Yoto says:

        Here in darkest Asia, the Beeb covered live both Cameron and Milliband’s pontifications sans interruption. But as soon as Cameron stood up to respond to the Milispeech, two pompous beeboid women butted in to exchange views/commentary on what Milli had just said – thereby avoiding the need to let the world hear the PM’s response to the Militirade. They really are a bunch of [grapes] aren’t they? Happily though we do not pay their tax extortion.

    It’s Nick’s job to keep Vince and Co. indignant but not so much that they quit. It’s Dave’s job to keep the bloodlust of the skeptics up but not so much that they call a leadership contest or indeed a referendum. Somehow they’ve kept the Coalition together and raised its popularity.

    Best double act since Cannon and Ball, mark my words.

    Little Cleggy is like a semi-house-trained puppy in the Coalition Government. From time to time, he makes a Cleggypuddle somewhere, to get himself noticed. Then one of the grown-ups has to clean up the latest little Cleggymess.

    He has probably been put out in the yard of the House of Commons, and is now feeling very sorry for himself.

    MandyPickleSniffer says:

    Can someone pls help me on this one issue…Wasn’t able to catch it live, but I was watching the PM statement on the Euro veto on the computer a little while ago, then had the displeasure of watching Milliband’s hysterical ranting, but then the video stopped…so I never saw the PM’s retort.
    Going on to BBC iplayer, and other sites as well, the videos all seem to stop at that point. Are they afraid to show Cameron making the point (as I’m told he did) that Labour would also have vetoed the deal? Is the BBC scared to show Cameron challenging Milliband to declare whether he would’ve vetoed the deal or gone along with the rest of the lemmings? Does anyone have a link to the FULL proceedings? Much appreciated.

    Old Blue Eyes says:

    One person who was there was that bloody old fool Dennis Skinner. I’m sure he just goes there to keep out of the cold. What I would like to know is, if he is the good socialist he professes to be why is he still occupying a parliamentary seat when well past pensionable age. Shouldn’t he be retired in favour of some younger unemployed idiot ?

      Perhaps he’s trying to avoid his journey to the Lords.

    Give the Protland back to the Pikeys. Rebuild Hadrian’s Wall with machine gun posts. Demolish the Severn Bridges. If we don’t want any of our City of London taxes flowing to Europe, why pay for these idle provincial scroungers?

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
