Ken Clarke, roving Minister without Portfolio, has roved over to the Oval following his demotion earlier today:

He hasn’t got anything better to do…

      I like Ken Clarke but how much is this costing the tax payers?

      I will not mind if Cameron reimburse the country from his own pocket, he is worth at least £30 million. Does Cameron think voters are stupid?

      Some Twat up North says:

      Is his mouth open because he was waiting for Willy Hague?

    Antipo-dean says:

    He’s got nicer legs than I remember.

    Wait, what, that’s *not* Ken Clarke?

  4. 4
    I Remember You Hoo says:

    The old fart looks exhausted, too much red wine with lunch again?

  5. 5
    Steve Miliband says:

    Looks exactly the same as the photo of him at Trent Bridge for the Test match.

  6. 6
    BARON Jeffrey Archer of Weston Super Mare says:

    end of a generation of poli’s?

    there’s still ME!

  7. 7
    Not surprised says:

    Good to see his constituents getting value for their money! Why do we put up with it. Think I might wander over to Trent Bridge tomorrow – wonder what my boss would say?

  8. 8
    Sir William Waad says:

    Some poor spectator has had Ken’s right Hush Puppy fall on his head.

      I’ve put it on eBay along with Chris Bryant’s skid-marked pants. Bids start at 99p.

    the savant says:

    who s the bint showing off the legs ?

    Has Warsi taken to ” chess on grass ” as well ??

    Better at the Oval than the Lords!

    Al Zimmers says:

    Whereas Vince is doing the business in his jimjams again.

  12. 13
    Andrew Strauss says:

    I can’t wait for him to bump into John Major at the Oval.

  13. 15
    And why not? says:

    >He hasn’t got anything better to do…

    Bloody sensible choice!

    bergen says:

    Never condemn a man for watching his own county play a championship match.

    He’s got his priorities right.

  15. 19
    Jack says:

    Has he not just come back off months of holidays. When do thay actually do anything.

  16. 21
    Laws of the Bungle says:

    Just like Warsi, Ken will have little or nothing to do between Monday and Friday.
    There’s always someone who is completely incompetent but who you can’t kick out completely for one reason or another.

    Similar to making Prescott Deputy PM and letting him spend his time playing croquet or shagging his secretary.

    Kenneth Harold Clarke QC, whip to Heath ( that other great British patriot with a questionable bank balance) at the tender age of 31, UK (home counties) Bilderberg ‘representative’ and all round scumbag

    the savant says:

    does Minister Without Portfolio job spec

    stipulate incumbent should be on permanent holiday ?

    Harold MacMillan (deceased) says:

    The man has style.

  21. 27
    Baron Hogwash says:

    Ken – “There is just no justice”.

  22. 29
    Geoffrey H. Hindsmath (Major) British forces (ret) says:

    OK Ken is on the way down but why aren’t the May woman and the child Osborne looking for pastures new as back benchers? Dithery Dave strikes yet again! Oh and rewarding Laws for Fraud what sort of lesson is that for the kiddies in his charge? I ask you!!! Laws for one and different laws for the elite!!! Also the Murdoch man for Health?! Well when you’ve got no talented or experienced individuals you have to promote dross!!How about Willie Hague for equal rights? Makes more sense than the bollo*ks dropped as Foreign Secretary. IDS “REFUSING TO MOVE” well sack the bugger if you’ve any pretence of being a leader!!

    Border Terrier says:

    Catch up you lying sods – this is an old photo. At least 3 months old?

  24. 38

    If he’s watching cricket that means he isn’t doing any damage anywhere. I’d have settled for him being minister of bog brushes just as long as it got him out of justice.

  25. 45
    Some Twat up North says:

    Off topic

    Have just seen an advert for recruits to join Brendas army…

    Am I wrong? I thought the armed forces were being reduced by a more than considerable amount.

    Who’s paying for these adverts and why?

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.”
