Parliament Invites Lords to “Speed Date” Teenagers

Spectacularly badly timed:

Dear Lord ███████

Political Speed Dating Event – Thursday 22nd November

As part of Parliament Week 2012 we are holding a ‘Political Speed Dating’ event where a group of 13-16 year olds will have the rare opportunity to chat in small groups with current Parliamentarians.

The session will run at 10.30am to 11.45am in the Macmillan Room in Portcullis House, and it would be wonderful for the students if you were available to participate. We are inviting Members of both Houses from all parties and the event will involve up to 10 Members. We have extended the invitation to several members and I hope that you are able to participate.

Please contact me if I can provide any further information about the session, I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely,

Dawn Hatch

Education Visits Officer

Houses of Parliament

Well that was pretty poorly worded given the current climate.

    This is pretty poor gutter writing considering it’s quite clear it’s not malicous

      Yes, you’re right, I could have phrased it better.

      Sir William W says:

      They’re trying to groom impressionable young people and get them hooked on ‘politics’ (or ‘Filth’ as it’s known on the street) so that they can exploit them ruthlessly. Boys and girls, you may think that Filth makes you look grown-up and that you can handle it, but before you know it you’ll be slaving as an unpaid intern for some evil Mr/s Big(ish) or trawling the gutters of Westminster in search of a publicity ‘fix’. Just say no!

      Maybe it was dictated by Tom Watson; he seems to be very good at gutter writing. Mind you, nobody can check that assertion now, since he’s deleted most of his blog.

    No matter how hard the Home Office try to deport the radical hate-preacher Abu Qatada, he just keeps coming back. Apparently, they had even more trouble with his brother, Abu Meringue.

    Proper speed dating is great. Not with teenagers though, I hasten to add. Much better than online dating, which is only for weirdo’s.

    The fact that MPs can take time off work between 10.30 and 11.45 am to get down with the kids tells you quite a lot.

    But they are over the age of consent, no?

    I voted to lower it so as to grope some more kiddies…

    Great honey trap. Question is: who set it up? MI5, CIA, Mossad or FSB? We can safely rule out Number 10.

      What else was she there for anyway?

    And two years of LibCon Omnishambles

    This is the dregs we are left with

    And these fuckwits are all paid by us…

    The next governor of the Bank of England will be Guido Fawkes, the right wing political blogger, , if the chancellor and prime minister choose the candidate favoured by some senior regulators, government advisers, central bankers and bankers.

    I think Dawn Hatch should be sent to join our Nads as penance
    for her fuckwittery

    These overpaid functionnaries should justify their salaries to the People…

    She would then be called Down the Hatch…

    Hello little boy, have you ever seen an MP naked?

    Kreatcherr says:

    To host such a shenanigan and boast about it, at a time like this, with such a poorly worded statement just goes to show how, clueless, out of touch and insulated from the world they like to think they own, these cretins actually are.
    They are totally divorced from reality and have absolutely no conception or understanding on how they appear…
    No sign of intelligent life there at all.

    That is not just dumb that is incompetence, ignorance and arrogance, they must be so proud!

    Dawn’ll fix it for you. And you. And you.

    It is interesting that so many people in power, are so far removed from reality.

    Lord Greville Janner got in trouble for dating that 14 year old boy so I don’t think it’s a good idea.

    “Well that was pretty poorly worded given the current climate.”

    Maybe, but on the other hand there’s an awful lot of hysteria.

    I don’t doubt that some youngsters were seriously abused. I also don’t doubt that the usual low-lifes are trying to cash in.

    In the mid/late sixties when I was 17 and travelling twice a day on packed standing-room-only rush-hour London tube trains, I assumed that being groped was thrown in with the ticket price. In such cattle-truck condidtions it was often hard to identify the perpetrator but when I could, oh boy did I enjoy stepping back heavily with a stiletto-clad foot and hearing the ensuing howl of anguish!

    Sometimes I feel positively deprived that it didn’t leave me with any traumas or hangups, and absolutely didn’t spoil my life. Maybe I should sue someone for not spoiling my life enough?

      Anna says:

      Oh dear, just to clarify…

      I know perfectly well that most men are pillars of rectitude (sort of ;)) and they are all lovely. It is only a very sad minority that go groping.
