Tim Loughton V the Department for Education: Round II

Guido feels this one is going to rumble on…

UPDATE: And round III: the Speccie have one vicious briefing from Gove’s people.


  1. 1
  2. 2
    Gordon Brown says:

    I’ve got a rumble in my rectum.

  3. 3
    Julie Birchall says:

    Why do people have these media bitch fights?

  4. 4
    Hittite Empire says:

    Why have you got an annoying voice

  5. 5
    Julie Birchall says:

    Suck my strapon

  6. 6
    Moussa Koussa Mark 4 says:

    I warned you about The Gimp Gove and you opted not to listen – repent at leisure.

    All the neo nuts see the gimp as a shining example of a good minister…he is in fact a twat of the highest order.

    * Free schools, no real uptake, and very low numbers.

    * FOI debacle for Free schools

    * His email account faux pas

    * and now this insight

    He is a sh*it minister

  7. 7
    Hittite Empire says:

    You really post shite, you have got it down to an art form

  8. 8
    Ed Millibland says:

    What I meant to say was “What am I thinking?”

  9. 9
    Is having on f'ing clue navigating then? says:

  10. 10
    hank the cat says:

    The Chief Constable for Hampshire’s Constabulary has been named Stonewall’s Individual Champion of the Year for lesbian, gay and bisexual people.

    Good to see the plod looking after thier own

  11. 11
    Polly Pot says:

    I’m still the queen of victimhood.

    I see victims everywhere..look , over there. A woman in the rain without an umbrella!
    In 21st century Britain! Its a disgrace.What is this Tory led government of millionaires doing to protect the most unfortunate from raindrops?
    nothing! The fat scum.
    Lets all hold a candlelit vigil, sitting in a circle holding hands and singing African protest songs outside number 10 until a proper , equality of umbrella provision law, is passed.

  12. 12
    hank the cat says:

    In other words fatbot it was a bloody car crash

  13. 13
  14. 14
    Gordon the Spaz says:

    He makes my wibble boonbollocks ravings seem normal.

  15. 15
    Moussa Koussa Mark 4 says:

    My local school..has:-

    1 X head £85k+
    1 X deputy head £65K+
    4 X assistant heads £55K+
    6 X deputy assistant heads £50K+

    All have little if any pupil class time…ie no longer actualy teaching

    All the additional head posts created since sept 2012….school has less than 300 kids

  16. 16
    hank the cat says:

    Not after it has been in Tony Parsons

  17. 17
    Crash Test Dummy says:

    Sir – You bring our job into disrepute

  18. 18

    Navigating like the captain of the Costa Concordia

  19. 19
    Guardian Reader from a Yurt in North Korea says:


  20. 20
    hank the cat says:

    As John The Hobbitt would say “cheap house even cheaper wife”

  21. 21
    Remember my sensibilities says:

    Please do show pictures of Ms Abbot.

  22. 22
    hank the cat says:

    Nearly as bad as kinnochios aaallllllllllriiiiight

  23. 23
    Why are Labour wimmin ugly says:

    Is Jacqui looking for a ‘second home’ now that hubbies ‘pawn’ stash is taking up considerable room?

  24. 24
    El Cid says:

    Is that the special needs school you go to?

  25. 25
    Julie Davies, Pilgrim says:

    And your point is?

  26. 26
    Ed Miliband says:

    We won’t enter the single currency as long as I am PM.

  27. 27
  28. 28
    Gordon the Spaz says:

    They need at least 9 more administrators on the payrol. And a union pilgrim on £75k, organising a few strikes.

  29. 29
    Nick Clegg says:

    What do we want? “An EU In/Out Referendum”

    When do we want it? “2 years ago”

  30. 30
    Jimmy says:

    To be fair Loughton has worked very hard to deregulate kiddyfiddling.

  31. 31
    Moussa Koussa Mark 4 says:

    My point is it’s just nowhere near enough.

  32. 32
    U kip and I'll kip says:

    Well at least we know this briefing is the work of civil servants. Gobby Gove couldn’t spell narcissistic.

  33. 33
    Willy Bum Vague says:

    Breaking news a covert undercover operation has taken place by the Algerian government forces
    which included helicopter gunships hovering overhead spraying the place with bullets
    FFS Bet that took em by surprise !

    unconfirmed on the ground reports many dead

  34. 34
    Gonk III says:

    A really enormous, metal rending car crash at that. A fourteen year old would have sounded more statesman-like.

  35. 35
    Casual Observer says:

    Before ordering next time John, make sure you go to Spec Savers.

  36. 36
    U kip and I'll kip says:

    Let’s be fair. It may be Polly twaddle but it still makes more sense than any policy ever devised by Gobby Gove.

  37. 37
    Harriet Harpic says:


  38. 38
    U kip and I'll kip says:

    Think for a minute instead of just reacting. Even those of us who have been party members for 30+ years recognise Gobby as the most useless minister since St John Stevas.

  39. 39
    Violet Elizabeth Miliband says:

    You’re tho nathty. I’m going to thcream and thcream.

  40. 40
    Raving Loon says:

    There was better navigating on the Titanic.

  41. 41
    U kip and I'll kip says:

    I wondered why they called the county ground the Rose Bowl.

  42. 42
    Owen Jones says:


  43. 43
    Casual Observer says:

    Are we talking before or after the iceberg ?

  44. 44
    Archer Karcher says:

    “Good to see the plod looking after thier own”

    They couldn’t care less about anyone else.

  45. 45
    Julie Davies, Pilgrim says:

    My gripe is that I don’t get as much for doing sweet-fa the same amount of non-teaching.

  46. 46
    Willy Bum Vague says:

    As the hostages were being moved from one building to another
    The Algerian helicopters dropped bombs on them
    and they are firing at anything that moves

  47. 47
    Horror of horrors! says:

    Yes, performance-related pay for teachers is an awful idea!

    It will force some of them to make an effort.

  48. 48
    U kip and I'll kip says:

    That was just a deckchair exercise. It has been the case for years.

  49. 49
    U kip and I'll kip says:

    Dear God, did the Algerians learn nothing from the French (sit round talking for years, surrender, abort plans due to wrong ammunition……).

  50. 50
    Going nuts with taxpayers' money, Labour says:

    And an Equality and Diversity Community Outreach worker, a GLBTG Community Group Hug Facilitator, two Leader of Learning Experience Climate Change Environment Outreach Group Hug Facilitators, and..

  51. 51
    Censorship in action says:

    The video link which was blocked: The film is not really worth watching as it is a little bit biased, but still, the censors appear to be out there:


    The key point is: The inquest recorded a verdict of unlawful killing, paparazzi were no where near the crash scene and Piers Morgan is on the record saying the establishment lied.

  52. 52
    Kebab time gives me a boner says:

    At least Norman was honest about being an arse bandit

  53. 53
    Kebab time gives me a boner says:

    Apparently her back door has been smashed in.

  54. 54
    Censorship in action says:

    Also – that link above – all that was published on the wordpress blog was a link to the material hosted else where.

  55. 55
    Jeremy says:

    Don’t worry, Bunnies *shall* go to Brussels.

  56. 56
    Socialists = Sociopaths says:


  57. 57
    The BBC are cunts says:

    Genuine online advert says:

    I am looking for an athletic guy to kick me in the balls for a video project. Please include a photo.

  59. 59
    Calamity Cameron is in charge says:

    Lifted straight from the DT website:

    12.48 Tim Ross has more on the extraordinary plans being drawn up in Downing Street for David Cameron to chair a Cobra meeting from overseas. His spokesman said:

    “The Prime Minister thinks that the right thing for him to do is to be in charge across the entire situation…”

    He has chaired two Cobras already and will chair it again. Arrangements are in place for him to chair a Cobra from the Hague tomorrow morning, if that is necessary”

    12.48 Tim Ross has more on the extraordinary plans being drawn up in Downing Street for David Cameron to chair a Cobra meeting from overseas. His spokesman said:

    13.13 Al-Jazeera is reporting that 35 hostages have been killed and 15 hostage takers killed as they tried to move from one plant location to another.

    13.18 Algeria’s ANI news agency is now reporting that 34 hostages and 15 kidnappers have been killed by air strikes by the Algerian army. Several Western hostages are understood to be among those dead. “

    Labour says:

    Labour can’t be hypocritical. That’s something which only our opponents can be.

  61. 61

    Is there a hermeneutic guide available which helps ordinary mortals like us to interpret what you mean by the words to be fair?

    Spoilt bitch.

  65. 65
    That's the way to do it says:

    … make an effort to learn and master their subjects in order to be able to teach.

    There, fixed it for you.

  66. 66
    The Socialist Mob says:

    Racist, Elitist, Sexist

  67. 67
    Pollyshambles says:

    That would of course mean not smoking two quids worth of kingsize fags, of course.

  68. 68

    Fock you you focking conts.

    Semiotics says:

  72. 72
    We should be told says:

    Dozens of civil servants have found themselves in deep trouble after surfing the internet for porn while they were meant to be working.

    A total of 55 workers at the Welsh Government’s offices were looking at explicit photographs and videos at their desks.

    Disciplinary action was taken against the officials after the material was found on their computers.

    Were they spanked?

  73. 73
    That's the way to do it says:

    That’s the annual who did which and with whom and with what award.

  74. 74

    …THE most hunkiest, chunkiest, wibbly wobbly PT master they can find. Ooh, me goose bumps have got goose bumps on ‘em.

  75. 75
    Your Friendly Neighbourhood Possible Trademark Infringement Monitoring Service says:

    On account of the stadium in Southern California, which has been around since even before the 1932 Olympic Games and was one of the minor venues then as well as in 1984, as well as being the site of the championship match of the World Cup 1994. The folks in Hants figured they could get away with nicking the name, as no-one in the US gives a flying fuck about cricket (and probably not all that many of the people in Hants as well, if we’re being honest) and would probably not notice.

  76. 76
    A brave explorer from yore says:

    From a brief visit to London, I seem to remember Loughton was on the red tube line. Any connection?

    Go to a muooslim country and you’re asking for it. Work there and you’ve already committed suicide.

  84. 84

    Come back here and fix this for me Violet

    Yes, face it tory boys – Gove is a wanker.

    You’ve all been told, everyone knows except Greedo’s vermin.
