Ken Clarke Shuffles to the Cricket

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…

    Antipo-dean says:

    He’s got nicer legs than I remember.

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

    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.

    the savant says:

    who s the bint showing off the legs ?

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

    Al Zimmers says:

    Whereas Vince is doing the business in his jimjams again.

  13. 13
    Andrew Strauss says:

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

    Not surprised's boss says:


  15. 15
    And why not? says:

    >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?

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

    He’s got his priorities right.

    at least he cant do any damage watching cricket….

    Jack says:

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

    Not surprised says:

    @Not surprised’s boss – obviously a fake profile she would NEVER say that! But just in case – that report you wanted is on your desk!

  21. 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 ?

  24. 24
    Not surprised's boss says:

    I didn’t want *that* one, I wanted the *other* one. It’s a woman’s prerogative.

    juge de paix

    Harold MacMillan (deceased) says:

    The man has style.

  27. 27
    Baron Hogwash says:

    Ken – “There is just no justice”.

  28. 28
    The Golem says:

    To be fair, none of them work for us anymore.

    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!!

    Correct youg lady! Politics is no place for a real Lady

    Not whilst I am paying towards his salary & ex’s he hasn’t.

  36. 36
    Jimmy says:

    They elected him. Why wouldn’t he?

  37. 37

    Consecutive no balls.

  38. 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.

    Some Twat up North says:

    He was out with Pickles

    Some Twat up North says:

  41. 41
    Some Twat up North says:

    There is no justice.

  42. 42
    Some Twat up North says:


    Just Privi lege

  43. 43
    Some Twat up North says:

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

    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?

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.”
