Lord Strathclyde Resigns: Westminster Reaction

Whatever the reasons behind the departure, Downing Street can’t be that annoyed. “The Queen has been pleased to appoint the Rt Hon the Lord Strathclyde to the Order of the Companions of Honour.” Suggests a friendly exit…

    David Cameron types always shits on North of England says:

    Dave says:

    I believe in marriage. That is why today, Nick and I will retake our wedding vows in front of the British people.

    Lord Strathclyde also believes in marriage, especially shagging married women.

    Wedding Day Blues says:

    A friendly exit you say Guido? You are having a laugh yes?

    Nick and Dave are going back to the alter today for a formal ceremony where they will retake their wedding vows. I can’t believe they are feeling friendly towards the lecherous old uncle who has upstaged them.

    David Cameron says:

    Do you think in fifty years time if the definition of the word ‘gay’ has reverted back to its old form of meaning to be happy and joyous, old men will be heard sighing and saying wistfully, ‘I can remember when that word meant to stick your cock up another mans arsehole..’

    Yawnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn. So many experts, but none of them know FA. Just justifying their jobs.

    What about real stories?
    Chilcot – what’s happening?
    Andrew Mitchell – what’s happening?
    Stafford hospital – what has hypocrite Andy Hillsborough Burnham got to say?

    How bad does your behaviour have to be to fall below Strathclyde’s standards?

    I’m happy. And like a jolly time with my male friends, playing with each other, making fun of our little bits, in the private school gym after, in the showers.

    Brilliant memories.

    Teddy bears to Oxfam? Now you know what beeb Comic Relief and Children in Need is really about in the Shepherd’s Bush.

    Just saw Tessa Jowell and Mingin menzies on DP.
    Both arguing that without mass Eastern European immigration,the food
    industry would not function.Are they blind to the fact that we have plenty of our
    own people,who could do this work.????
    With labour and the libdems adopting that attitude our own people do not stand a chance….I am aware of the stigma of “immigrant jobs”,but our benefit system should toughen up to serve our unemployed…What happened to skillcentres..??

    There are few people who are even aware of quite how much he has put in on behalf of the Conservative party.

    He supported Lord Cranborne against William Hague. He lead the Lords for almost the entire term of opposition. No need to stay to keep a socialist government in power.

    Andy Burnham says:

    Rubbish. Stafford was such a good hospital, I recommended it for foundation status. Anyway, It was the patients’ fault for not speaking up.

    I blame Cameron myself, there was never a need for all of this public inquiry nonsense. What’s 1200 deaths, give or take a few?

    Shirkers NOT workers says:

    There was a BBC documentary 2010 fruit picking near Peterborough….and the fact that farmers could not get any indigenous workers to pick the fruit and hence were having to import Polish Workers ….the guy fronting the BBC Programme went to Job Centre with one of the farmers in Peterborough and asked a few local lads as they came out of signing on if there was work in the locality….they all as a man said Nope ..it’s a total dead loss mate..no jobs….the BBC guy said well here’s a guy who can offer you a job stat straightaway pointing to the farmer….the lads all sid….I’m NOT working for minimum wage and doing work like THAT…it’s not worth getting outta bed for….I’ll be worse off ….couldn’t play on me playstation etc etc…..says it all really

    The unlawful bit, well one part of it, hangs on the issue of whether Iraq posed a threat to US National Security.
