Light Whipping in Osborne’s Office

As the 10pm vote deadline approached last night, Francis Maude was celebrating his birthday with a soirée in George Osborne’s offices in Parliament. Guido understands that Mad Frankie was slightly upstaged by his then PPS Angie “they’ll have to sack me” Bray. Sources in the room whisper to Guido that Whip Mark Francois made no efforts to cajole Bray at the party despite being there and chatting to her for some time. So much for that aggressive whipping…

Apparently Maude was angry though, not at the fact his PPS was rebelling, but concerned about finding a decent replacement for Bray given that almost all of the potential talent pool had rebelled.

At least any replacement will be über-loyal.

If they voted with the government last night, they’ll vote on anything…

    If Angie’s read ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’, she might be up for some ‘aggressive whipping’.

    What he needs is a highly loyal, talented forward thinking and motivated staff base working to agressive time scales.

    Good to see at least the rebels are in touch with the mood of the country.
    No-one,apart from a few Liberals, want these reforms.

    Wonder whether Neo will still be wearing his rose tinted spectacles if there is a live PMQ thread.
    For 2 weeks in a row he has found Ed “outstanding”- ” the winner “, which beggars belief.

    Penfold says:

    The Limp-Dicks have no understanding of collective cabinet responsibility, they entered the coalition with the Tories for political gain and set out their stall with that aim.
    Hypocrites and unscrupulous double dealers is too polite a description for Clegg and his crew.
    Clegg is a typical example of the disconnected politician who has cut his teeth in Brussels and thinks that the world revolves around people of his ilk. Prat.

      See Huhne is back commenting on yesterday’s vote – thought he was in jail.

      Just shows the hypocricy of the Lib/Dem types – no shame.

      Things to do before I die:

      1. Let daddy make me into a millionaire.
      2. Become a PR spiv.
      3. Become an MP.
      4. Become PM.

      5. Get to level 10 on Angry Birds.
      6. Get a huge backhander from my pals in the construction industry by letting them build whatever they like, wherever they like.
      7. Trash the Tory Party and all its looney fruitcake closet-racist supporters.
      8. Get a spiffing job in Brussels that sets me up for life.

    It is the last day of term. Broon missed registration (again), Balls the school bully is waiting in the bogs, and Cleggy has hidden a rotten kipper in the headmaster’s study. Miliband Minor is present in class much to everyone’s annoyance as he always asks stupid questions to attract attention. Will ‘Call me Dave’ lose his temper again?

    So Max Hastings in the DM Pg 14 – gets to some rather good points

    “Lib Dems are not serious people. They are a party for flat-earthers, muesli eaters and kindness-to-rats enthusiasts”

    What Max doesn’t appear to want to state though – is that The Tory Party and The Labour Party are infested with “flat-earthers” as well. They all bought into Al’s big lie. His ‘Our Purpose’ the title of his Nobel prize lecture booklet. Don’t forget – that it was Al’s big lie out of America – and that America is one of the biggest ‘dissenters’ along with the Chinese …

    The British people have not been ‘had’ – but our parliamentarians have.

    Don’t mention that the Global warming climate change bubble has burst! Move along now you nasty members of the public.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
