PMQs LIVE: Bob Diamond Edition


  1. 1
    Mrs. Ball-Scooper ( triple flipper ) says:

  2. 2
    Ed Balls - Shallow Chancer says:

    I can confirm that Mrs. Ball-Scooper ( triple flipper ) never worked in HM Treasury during Reign of Terror 1997-2010.

  3. 3
    Lord Scalded Bollock says:

    George Osborne looks like he’s doing some serious tripping at PMQ’s.

  4. 4
    I don't need no doctor says:

    Labour are running scared, now just what do they have to hide.

  5. 5
    Andy Murray says:

    The maximum war criminal followed by the maximum imbecile.

  6. 6
    oddly helpful says:

    ‘Bankrolled by the banks’ He’s hardly a born rhetorician, is he?

  7. 7
    Martin Day says:

    Ed Miliband has just finished off David Cameron’s stint as Prime Minister.

    Never have I seen such a hoon as Cameron

  8. 8
    Andy Murray says:

    Almost everything I would have thought.

  9. 9
    National Socialist says:

    Both Jocks

  10. 10
    I don't need no doctor says:

    You cannot be serious. Miliband and his cronies have much to hide, hence why they want a long drawn out inquiry.

  11. 11
    Impartial Observer says:

    Exactly. An inquiry is just a way of kicking a problem into the long grass.
    Mind you the Tories were always calling for fewer and ‘lighter touch’ regulations.
    They’re all the same.

  12. 12
    Ed MealyBland says:

    I think Gordon Brown should be dragged into this House and publicly flogged for causing me all this trouble!

  13. 13
    Smoking guns, smoke and mirrors says:

    Indeedydeedy, Ms Balls was in the lowering libor treasury!

    What did she know?

  14. 14
    Lord Ashcroft says:

    Leave me out of this.

    As a precaution I will apply for a super injunction later this afternoon.

  15. 15
    AC1 says:

    There was a VAST amount of regulation (mainly designed to make it harder for competitors to emerge).

    Gordo’s Government wanted as much Debt (to tax) as possible, he made it happen. That’s basically post classical Neo-Endogenous growth theory (falsified).

  16. 16

    Pound weakening.

    More QE on the way.

  17. 17
    Impartial Observer says:

    I wouldn’t argue with that. In fact I believe you’re spot-on.

  18. 18
    Lord Scalded Bollock says:

    Personally I favour an inquiry let by G*ido Fa*kes and Har*y Co*e.

    This dynamic duo will sort out the banks

  19. 19
    For fucks sake says:

    Ask Gordon

  20. 20
    Chuka Urmunneyaround says:

    Yo !!!

  21. 21
    David Wisteria says:

    Well I thought that went pretty well.

    I sent Milliband packing about judicial inquiries.

    Come Thursday he will have to support me. A nice parliamentary inquiry with some fatuous questioning , a few slaps on wrists, and everything will be fine.

  22. 22
    London Cabbie says:

    I had that knob Martin Day in my cab the other day. He is a cnut.

  23. 23
    Oink! says:

  24. 24
    genghiz the kahn says:

    another day to bury bad news.

  25. 25
    Owain Glyndwr says:

    Just don’t get it, call me dave had the chance to have balls and the millitwat squealing like stuck pigs, but no he just stood and posed, for phuck sake he really is a limp dick

  26. 26
    Labour says just cos they were the government it's not THEIR fault blame the Tories says:

    Where do you start ?

  27. 27
    Breaking news says:


    Former minister Denis MacShane will face no further action from police over allegations that he abused Commons expenses, it has been revealed.

  28. 28

    What do you expect from the pillock. Spent all of his revision time trying to get his Rubiks cube out of his arse where Blinky had kicked it.

  29. 29
    pissed off voter says:

    hate to agree with Milliband but even broken clocks are right sometimes; parliamentary inquiry followed by public judicial inquiry were my thoughts too.

  30. 30
    M says:

    Not so much as trying to kick this into the long grass .
    More the jungle in the land that time forgot .

  31. 31
    Joss Taskin says:

    Haven’t you ever seen Gordon Brown, Ed Balls, Ed Miliband, Neil Kinnockio, Calamity Clegg and Lard Pressclott then ?

  32. 32
    Get Real...Labour is up to their necks in this says:

    Totally out of touch…like Miliband…..Labour is shitting themselves…Diamond has them by the shorts and they know it…..this goes to the very heart of the previous Labour Government.

  33. 33
    Owain Glyndwr says:

    Should some one be asking the police and the CPS WHY

  34. 34
    Chingrinner Memorial Committee says:

    miliband today in the house just a pathetic figure squirming to avoid a parliamentary enquiry. Chingriner and Ed Balls will doubtless be looking
    forward to appearing.

    I hope Bob Diamond doesn’t hold back in what he reveals this afternoon…
    just like ‘hacking’ you can be sure the practices were widespread.

  35. 35
    Denis MacShameless says:

    Now I shall be even more obnoxious than ever before. Didn’t think that was possinle, did you ?

  36. 36
    Labour...filth...just filth says:

    the teflon don of the north rides again

  37. 37
    Labour...filth...just filth says:

    expect nothing less than double talk from the slimey c’unt…she knew nothing and never discussed treasury matters at home.

  38. 38
    Anon Person says:

    When was the last time Bob D was seen alive ??

  39. 39
    Gillian Beastley says:

    Yes- please do!

    Whilst the sh*t once again hits the fan in relation to banking, it only means the inevitable scandal with regard to local government will be postponed for a while longer.

    That suits me, of course. By the time that particularly huge turd lands I will be living somehwere ‘offshore’ without any kind of extradition agreement with the UK.


  40. 40
    just remind me says:

    So will Labour co-operate with a parliamentary enquiry or not?

  41. 41
    tory boys never grow up says:

    Diamond’s position that the whole thing never went above the level of Desk Supervisoris just not consistent with the FSA’a Final Notice – Section E makes t clear that a senior manager flagged the potential conflict of interest to Compliance in September 2007 – unfortunately Compliance concluded that information barriers were not neessary even tough there was a potential conflict of interest between the Submiters and the Derivative Traders. Isn’t there an MP who can nail him on this?

    Anonymous says:

    In your dreams Mart, Milliband and co are in it up to their necks i cant wait for it to hit the fan (oo Mrs ! )

  43. 43
    tory boys never grow up says:

    Some one please ask why Diamond did ask why he didn’t ask Compliance were looking into in 2007 given his stated concern about staff behaving properly

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.”
