Mitchell v Dorries: Bushtucker Denial

This Morning Nads’ tweeting daughters Jennifer and Cassie appeared on Daybreak to defend their jungle-venturing mum. They had a rather awkward story to tell about a certain former chief whip:

“She did ask for the month off, she did, she requested it from the Chief Whip at the time, that she’s going to go away from a month, that it will be controversial, and he said that’s fine.”

Andrew Mitchell has responded by denying that he ever gave permission for Nadine to go down under. Good thing he has a spotless record of always telling the truth…

    Yesterday I underwent a painful procedure that required me to have my spine and both testicles removed.

    Still, got some great wedding presents though.

      George, will you assure the people of Rotherham that Respect will run a fair and honest campaign in the forthcoming by-election – and that you aren’t just a vile little sectarian party as everyone assumes?

      To be honest i dont think Nadine would know the truth if it bit her on her bum ! nobody can find out if she ever really was a nurse, and a further husband came out of the woodwork over the weekend, she got rid of him when she was 20.

    Sally Bercow, the wife of the Speaker of the Commons, and George Monbiot, a columnist for the Guardian are also among those who will be pursued by Lord McAlpine for using the social networking site to tweet his name.

    Confirming she [Bercow] had received a letter from the peer’s lawyers, she accused them of being “ambulance chasers” and “big bullies”.

    The tweet, posted at 11.10pm on Friday, read: ‘Thanks @itvnews. Yes had letter from Lord McA. His lawyers ambulance chasers tbh #bigbullies. My tweet not libellous but …’

    So far 40 people have approached the peer’s legal team to apologise, it was reported.

    Lord McAlpine’s lawyers plan to make each of them pay a nominal amount, possibly as little as £5 each, and will donate the money to a prominent children’s charity.

      Cameron recently fell in to a pond full of crocs but the never attacked him. Evidently he just kept shouting “I promise a referendum on EU membership AFTER the next election” It seems that not even a croc would swallow that

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
