Labour's Karl Turner is an Expert in Public Aggression

Labour’s wannabe attack-dog Karl Turner has had a good day. His eyewitness tweets of the PM apparently dressing down Jesse Norman have nudged this dreary non-entity out of total obscurity. Last night he reported that a “very angry… finger pointing and prodding” PM had “lambasted” Norman in “animated and clearly aggressive” way. He went on to lecture about how un-statesmanly the affair had been.  Those words like “angry” and “clearly aggressive” got Guido thinking though. He remembered a story from January 2011:

Turner was travelling on the train to Hull and the guard politely asked him not to steal newspapers:

“Witness reports say the usual “don’t you know who I am”… “no” routine was deployed when the train manager had to intervene and “a very unpleasant scene” prevailed which saw Turner “draw himself up to his full 5’6 ins and launched into a tirade of abuse against the man”. The wobbler apparently continued on the platform after arrival at Hull station, with Turner claiming he wanted a written apology from the train company. “A self-satisfied, obnoxious, patronising bully who can afford a quid for The Times” was one of the more delicate descriptions of his behaviour.”

Sounds “animated and clearly aggressive” to Guido. Takes one to know one, eh Karl?

Quote of the Day

Sky’s Faisal Islam on the mood in Parliament at the moment:

“It’s a totally febrile atmosphere here. It’s kind of like Game of Thrones meets House of Cards – and if you chuck in the Labour Party – Laurel and Hardy too.”
