Labour will be backing the Reckless motion later today. When Denis Macshane and Bill Cash skip hand in hand through the division lobby, the PM must surely realise he’s on the wrong side of history. Again…

      The political class won’t get us out of the EU, there’s too much cash and bribes for them to give up.

      The hysteria is beggining to overshadow the real abuse says:

      Im making no excuses for genuine sexual abuse by WTF is SKY reporting instances of Saviles hanky panky with “teenage” girls as abuse ? In case they didnt know consensual sex with a teenager aged 16,17,18 or 19 is perfectly legal. FFS !

        Really? says:

        Indeed, concentrate on the real nonces, there are plenty of them in high office and retired. Looks like Sky are muddying the water, to distract attention from the protected vermin.

        Quite it really is getting ridiculous.

        how many of the girls aged 16,17,18 or 19 actually consented, though????

      Jock Cameron says:

      While Dave subsidises travel to Scotch Islands. Today is the final day of the 50 year helicopter service to Scilly.

      In winter the passenger ferry service does not run and very often the small Airbus light planes can not operate. So the air ambulance and search and rescue from Culdrose will have to fill in the gap probably costing the taxpayer more than if they had helped keep the helicopter service going.

      The heliport at Penzance is within spitting distance of the mainline railway station unlike Lands End aerodrome, as a result travel to the Islands is likely to decline making them a destination and location for the wealthy only

      Why does Dave regard Scottish Islands more important than English Islands?

      • 27
        Just asking says:

        Is this the same Scilly islands that appear to be a seed bed of corruption ?

      • 28
        For those of you who think a certain wall marks the Border says:

        Where are the ‘Scotch islands’ ? Have looked at a map of the UK and can’t see them anywhere . Can you give us a clue , like are they near the Western Isle or Hebridies or Orkney and Shetland Islands ?

      Raving Loon says:

      We used to ask which nation was the sick man of Europe. It now seems that Europe is the sick man of the world.

      Handsome Dave says:

      I am very charming, impeccably well mannered and f*ck all use at anything. I am an old Etonian you know. If I were a bit younger I would be starring on ‘Made in Chelsea’. What ho toodle pip!

    Kebab Time says:

    Think this will be a damp squib, last minute deal will be done and the backbenchers will lose their spines.

      Broadsword calling Danny Boy says:

      I agree with you.

      648 MPs and not a single principle between them (648 excludes the dead and the one who ran away to New York).

        The electorate’s dozing. Give it a poke
        You know you can’t beat the Tory rebels joke
        The tears of laughter will run down their knickers
        Watching Dave’s chicken-lickin’ cotton-pickers

    After this we need a General Election, pronto.

    Raving Loon says:

    He keeps on saying that most people think we should stay in the EU. Who are these people? Almost everyone I know hates the EU and wants nothing to do with it.

    • 14
      To Be Fair says:

      To be fair I think he means most people who have a vested interest think we should stay in the EU.

    revolting little man says:

    we will never forget them and their sacrifices, whatever their names are…

    • 25
      Really? says:

      Ah yes, more dead so the old ‘we will never forget’ bollocks must be getting readied for another outing of faux solemnity and sympathy.

      Of course the charade of phoney emotion is as forced and dishonest as almost everything else they do, or emote about.

      If they cared, really cared, they would show their respects in person to the returning dead, those they sent off to die for nothing.

      That would however place them in the rather awkward and uncomfortable situation of having to actually speak to the families of those they are sending to their deaths, for no good reason.

      Best stick to sniffing the onion and looking mournfully into the middle distance, in the safety of the HoC.

    Steve Miliband says:

    Has anyone ever seen Andy Burnham and Susie Squire in the same room?

    David Wisteria says:

    That Mark Reckless is a common or garden drunk .

    He is not a fit and proper person to hold any kind of public office .

    I would not leave my children with him !

    Dave is worried the EU might tell us to sod off and then they’d erect harsh banking trades taxes so we’d be skint. It is a worry. We would be in deep trouble.

    But better to live a day as a freedman than a life as a slave.

      Really? says:

      Really Bill?

      We have them by the balls, they would not dare go down such a path.

      Last time I looked they had and always have had, a massive trade surplus with the UK, with hundreds of thousands of jobs, if not millions, dependent on free trade with us.
      Which EU leader would dare risk stoking unemployment in their own countries, in a futile effort to bloody our nose, when their economies are facing huge unemployment problems?

      No, some of them may stamp their feet in public and mutter coded insults, but on the whole, they would be quietly relieved that the end of this ridiculous experiment in voluntary soft fascism, had started.

    The Mysterious Oliver Letwin says:

    I’m saying nothing.
    Oh and you ain’t seen me,right?

    veto early – veto often!

    oh – and veto for me

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.”
