Councillor Quits After Doing a Gordon

A Lincolnshire councillor has been forced to quit after drawing criticism for her low attendance.

Sara Cliff attended just 19 meetings from a possible 52, a strike rate far more impressive than many sitting MPs.

Are you watching Gordon…

      Gordon cannot attend the HoC because of the public safety problems met say, getting mobbed by hundreds of screaming women and young girls.

      This afternoon I will re-enact trooping my colour!

      I saw it on TV.

    If the Political Class stayed at home and didnt F-ck with us then I am sure the World would be a better happier place.
    The Fraudster Elite have ruined everything, instead of just laying out a framework so that the people can rub along. They have subjected us too a social science experiment that didnt work and is killing the social structures of the past. Can you imagine if we could wind the clock back 60 years from a social perspective with all of the technology. WOW what a world. Not the Crime ridden Immigration, Fragmented Police State that has been created for the benefit of the ELITE

    Gordon Brown says:

    As I am omnipresent I do not need to attend in the flesh. I see all

    The tories are the C.I.As sex slaves,and not only that but they are in a “Houdinis underpants” type of position in economic terms,ie they can get in but they cannot get out of them!(in political terms ,and in other terms in the case of William Hague)

      I guess one could comment, ‘Please do quit. It will save us the taxpayer a great deal of money and prevent us from being bored silly by anymore of this worthless inquiry’

          wow if guido could bring the circus that is leveson to a permanent halt that would be a great feather in his cap!

          • Marmite says:

            Tell you what nell, most of the z-list celebs were queueing up to appe*r at Leveson in order to prop up their flagging careers. Poor hard done luvvies they were too!

        Cameron’s not that smart or devious. Or is he clever to a degree that is simply beyond the comprehension of all 60-odd million of us in this kingdom? Nah, don’t be daft.

    Aung San Suu Kyi is due to address the HoC on Thursday. You can bet gordon will stir himself to attend then in the hope of a photo op with this high profile person.

    Somebody needs to lock the door to the HoC kitchens to stop him chasing her through there as she tries to avoid him.

      Gordon McMad says:

      Aung San Suu Ky goes out more than I do.

      Best let auld acquaintance be forgot for the sake of Aung Suu Kyi.

    A point well made. Just another example of why the electorate will continue to hold MP’s in contempt.

    David Miliband says:

    Well, that’s on a par with MY attendance (a little bit over a third of the time). I have no problem with that!
    (On the other hand, in my case, it’s a lot like Fredo in Godfather II– I have to call a day in advance, so Ed can arrange not to have to see me, you know how that goes; he’s gotta be there a lot, being Leader ‘n’ all…)

      Don’t blame you for not bothering to turn up at the stadium of shite any more (and I don’t mean Sunderland FC).

    With the power of my brain I shall move The HoC to Kilkardy.

    its is a shame that he turned up at all – ever – just think were we would have been with out the genius who is GB

    Dick the Butcher says:

    Another spring has passed without me hearing the hideous purring of Turtle Doves. Twenty years ago, these savage creatures were not uncommon on my manor but now, thanks in great part to those brave Europeans, particularly the French and Italians, who put themselves in great danger, armed only with shotguns, to hunt down these vile vermin.
    Our thanks go to the Euro authorities for not enforcing silly laws about ‘protected species’.

    Gordon is a moron

    Here in Surrey we pray for our councillors to miss meetings – it is the only chance of getting sensible decisions.

    Geoff, England (not Britain or 'United' KIngdom) says:

    Guido, please compare these two questions.

    A) Are you watching Gordon…?

    B) Are you watching, Gordon…?

    To answer the first, you must be joking. I have more interesting, pleasant and important things to do.

    As for the second, he’s probably too arrogant to pay attention.

    Now, do you see the error at the top of the page?

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
