No.10 Do Not Deny Dave’s Debating Comments

Guido went back to his sources yesterday after some denials about Dave’s angry words to one Tory rebel. This morning Downing Street have all but confirmed it. According to the Times:

“No 10 conceded that Mr Cameron may have confronted one of the Tory rebels, Andrew Bingham, the MP for High Peak, at a drinks reception in Downing Street the previous evening about his support for the rebel amendment.”

Apparently the “this is not a sixth-form debating society” line is one of Dave’s favourites for admonishing unruly rebels. The 53 would agree: the EU and it’s budget matters to their voters.

        All for having to deal with the fuck up that LieBore left the country.

        LieBore – useless, lying sacks of shite, to a man and woman.

        Mousey Khunty – you and your champagne socialist homies need to be honest and team up with the BNP National Socialists – your methods, aims and belief systems are equally deranged and so alike as to be almost interchangeable. They want to marginalise non white English, your lot want to patronise them.

        The …ise have it.

    • 23 says:

      What goes on in the House of Commons is not remotely comparable to a 6th form debating society. A 6th form debating society is much more orderly and refined and much less hypocritical, as Labour proved by voting with the rebels.

        probably but in reality controlling a party like the conservatives is a mixture of influence and judicious appointments..its not a suprise he makes his choices from his own sphere…the ability to perform is still paramount. The eu bone will never be put down ..pragmatic stance from cameron ensures he can use any tactic he sees fit. Labour now totally exposed politically…expediency once again gaining force over reason..balls will be spitting nails for that tactic.

      Considering Cameron’s handling of this is akin to primary school posturing it seems wholly inappropriate to describe proper Tories as loonies rather than the rational and upstanding democrats that they are. Cameron is shite at his job and hasn’t got the wit to call for help. We have Heywood running the show and CCHQ is seen as a burden.

        Pansy Peter says:

        It is actually the counting system that does the fucking as usually the one who ‘wins’ does so with a minority of votes ie: although the winner got most single votes, the total votes of the other five candidates always/usually adds up to more than that, so in effect, he won although more people voted against him (or at least not for him).

        A fairer system would be for the first and second in an election to run off with all voters having another go and the one who gets the most wins. At least there is a modicum of fairness in such a system.

        The American Presidential voting system is completely fucked by their ‘college’ system. In a straight fight between two candidates that should be unnecessary. A v B and the one who garners the biggest total wins. Simple, so why don’t they do it?

    2 interesting to see how coalitions float – there’s an official one – each party is one – and now there is the facility for informal coalitions across the benches
