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 !

      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?

        Just asking says:

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

        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 ?

    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

    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.

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

      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.

    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.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

The British media are Hunts says:

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
