Daybreak Host Slams Hancock’s Extra Half Hour In Bed

Some pretty damning tweets from Daybreak presenter Matt Barbet over Matthew Hancock’s late arrival to the show yesterday morning:


What was that about the shirkers staying in bed with the curtains closed…

      The original inquiry, which concluded in 2000, identified 28 alleged abusers but they were never named in public.

        46, sorry of course, 47 comments should sum up how much of a borefest this newstory is.

    Typical Tory bastard, tries to smear someone with a lie to save face, till he’s forced to admit the truth.

    Mike Hancock MP says:

    Of course, when I stayed in bed well past my wake-up call, there was usually a different reason; Katia saw to that. Boaz.

    Who are these nonentities?

    Some Twat up North says:

    28 Police Forces and the CPS apologise for the Savile thingy…

    Thats alright then!

    Bit like Fred West saying sorry for murdering people and burying them in his cellar, naughty boy.

      Well, it WAS jolly good of old Westie to spare the taxpayers the expense of having to foot the bill for his stay at HM’s pleasure, wasn’t it? Decent chap.

      That is the trick with the UK. Make sure there is at least 10 organizations and in each 10 people that each had a small part to play in a process. When it hits the fan each can claim it was not their fault due to bad data etc.

      When looking closely they have all written their own job description to only look at a small part of the problem. It is not their job to investigate deeper or look at the failure of another. The ministers of course can not look into any individual example. Everyone safely can do nothing.

      One day the voters will see through this no-responsibility approach to government. But it will not be before more people lives are ruined or ended.

      We have a foodbank near us. It’s called ‘Tesco’. People get food there using ‘money’ which they get by ‘working’.

        What is it with these foodbanks? You can only make withdrawals. I tried to deposit some cucumber that was going to go off and they told me to F off !

    This is just Guido showing a balanced approach, now exposing an anti-Tory article after many weeks of riling Laurence Durnan (@PSbookEditor) for his continual early morning absences at the switch.
    Bit like the political parties. The government too needs as opposition for serious debate, with their different approach to tackling the problems at hand, than just one-sided suggestions, complimented by a deafening silence from the other party.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
