David “the Jews” Ward Faces the Music This Afternoon
MP Faces “Retract or Sacked” Ultimatum 

The LibDems have confirmed to Guido that the disciplinary meeting between David Ward and the party whips will go ahead later today, possibly in the early evening.  In a climb down following his car crash Sky News interview on Friday night, Ward weasel worded an apology for any “unintended offence”, but that’s unlikely to make the matter go away. The Nobel Laureate holocaust survivor that Ward hid behind on Friday is furious about being used. The LibDems say they are shocked and appalled by Ward’s “the Jews” rants, so how exactly is he planning to take the whip without a full retraction?  It would be leadership at it’s weakest if Clegg just lets this one pass…

In the meantime someone might want to have a quiet word in the ear of liberal Lord Alton of Liverpool who bizarrely asked last week in the Lords if the Government had “any plans to mark the 80th anniversary of the coming to power of Adolf Hitler and the Nazi regime in Germany on 30 January?” Unsurprisingly, Lord Gardiner replied that “the Government have no such plans.” Funny that.

UPDATE: Sources says Ward is facing “retract or sacked” ultimatum.

    Mr Rothstein says:

    it’s= it is
    its= belonging to it.

    Therefore, “at *its* weakest”.

    If we the conservatives don’t uphold our language, the left are going to ruin it quicker than we take our morning dump.

    Sorry but the libdems have been a deadloss in government.

    If huhnedini manages to escape this self-inflicted debacle he’s currently trying to evade he’ll make a very worthy leader of such a load of keystone characters!!

    One question seems to be missing from the UK Citizenship test:

    Where is the nearest benefits office?

      Benefits should not be available to anyone until they have worked and contributed to the system for at least 5 years.

        No it should be a lifetime for their parents and 5 years for them. This would stop us getting swamped by these sponging immigrants immediately. We could then start to repatriate them.

          does anyone have any idea how much the Romanians hate the Roma?

          You can guarantee the Romanians will do everything they can to encourage their Roma population to the UK in 2014. They’ll have free buses and pamphlets on how to claim and how to play the #ism card.

          Self-employed unemployed person? Run that one by me again?


          • Nick Clegg says:

            Yes – what’s your problem? I’m self-employed unemployed – I have absolutely nothing to do except do the Starbucks run for the rest of the guys in the office, sharpen pencils and sort the paperclips into order of size. But at most days least it means I can research private schools for my children, while Dave is running the country.
            I’m also working on my next speech to the Lib Dems, which, given the current membership, will be delivered in German from a balcony.

    If he does not attack Israel then Respect will take his seat at the next GE.

    There is nothing liberal or democratic about the Lib Dems & I hope they are wiped out at the next GE.

    Vote UKIP

    He should be expelled without question or simply resign.

    Such a display of poor judgement is beyond redemption even if compared against the currently low standard of UK public office.

      Portsmouth Voter says:

      … and so of course should Handycock have been expelled. Such a display of poor judgement over his behaviour with the Russian girls doesn’t seem to have done him any harm – at least with his Lib Dem bosses. Could it be something to do with the fact that he is one of their biggest financial supporters?

      Chef Field-Votermug says:

      He should tell the whips to take a powder, declare his independence forthwith and then start to create a few more waves here and there. That will add to the jollity of the last half of this second coming of the Rotten Parliament.

    On his twitter feed he writes:

    “From the bottom of my heart, thank you to the thousands who have emailed, tweeted & called me to show their support”

    Just listened to his interview on Sky, he just doesn’t get it at all, what a complete arse.

      What a bunch of perverts out there,”showing their support”

      Their supports must smell a tad,and surely he can afford to wear his own support.

        Proof please. Documented empirical facts and figures for those millions much appreciated. Oh! That’s right, asking to see that is illegal in much of Europe isn’t it?

        Silly me. I’ll just have to believe everything I’m told then.

    Meanwhile the white chosen ones have been forcibly injecting the black chosen ones with contraceptives against their will, telling them they are inoculations. No doubt if that doesn’t work forced sterilisation will do the trick.

    Ward’s work is done. He’s sent a dog whistle to his constituents that he’s at one with them in their view of Israel so he can sit back,smoke a cigar and repent at his own leisure. They’ll know what he really thinks.

      Casual Observer says:

      He hasn’t sent a dog whistle, but by the sound of it has left a very large turd for them to sniff and get excited about.

        Peter Expat says:

        It is a sad day for the UK when someone who simply iterates a common thought is being vilified like this. It may be poor political judgment, given the Friends of …….. stranglehold, but the rounding on him by vested interests bodes badly for free speech in the future.
        Instead of the messenger being shot it would be better if the constant Israeli intransigence was curbed.

    The last time the LibDems asked for ‘an apology,’ it came marching into Bradford East under a Respect flag.

    I’m tired of this “You can’t criticize Israel” BS ! Lets have some context for a change .. Newsflash the only democracy in the middle east has a pure as snow human rights record.. Those children didn’t really burn to death during cast lead because of banned White Phosphorus or were shot at point blank range straight through the Heart ..No that was all in our imagination! ‘Hell’.. We didn’t even get to see it on the News (that part is true) and since that massacre that didn’t happen because it was in our imagination what else have the righteous ones been getting up to ? “Waaaaaay too much .. Here’s their latest shameful act that won’t get covered by the BBC.


    Yes you can shed a tear, I did !

    They’re neither liberal nor democratic are they?

      Peter Expat says:

      Not really. Their coalitions inevitably result in undue influence from their own extremists. The price of coalitions is often denial of policies on which the majority were elected. That is hardly democratic.

      With all this talk of leadership challenges, and most of the party turning out be neo-nazis, let me make one thing absolutely clear – nope, sorry, can’t think of anything…

    Jenny Tongue doesn’t think he did anything wrong. Maybe they should her too?

    But then would mean they have to sack all the anti-semites in the Liberal party. Could be a bit risky.

    ‘Lord Gardiner replied that “the Government have no such plans.” ‘

    these things are best celebrated in private of course

    but we could have released the still secret whitehall list of intended collaborators, declared a judge-led public holiday and thereby ‘kick-started’ the economy

    an opportunity wasted?

    Weygand says:

    Who gives a flying fig whether Ward was right or whether he was offensive, he should be able to say what he believes (not least so that his beliefs may be challenged).
    Wasn’t freedom of speech the mantra Guido kept chanting to Levenson?
    This pathetic, hypocritical bleating and demanding people be sacked is just like the Guardian but without the piano lessons.

    this bloke is having a bit of a shocker and needs to punished but it was interesting to see Guido, Harry Cole, Louise Mensch and all the other ‘useful idiots’ of the govt blowing this up in to a massive shite storm on the day the GDP figures came out and pulled the rug from under ‘austerity’

    Nick Clegg says:

    Look, I’m taking action to stop all this nonsense about us being the Nazi party.

    All of us will be going to a camp where we can concentrate on the issue. Those who need to concentrate a bit more will stay there until they reach a final solution.

    The camp will be run by 3 trusted colleagues: VF Ways, F Making, U Talk.

    There is a big problem between the western world and the retarded Islamics which is not going to go away and eventually will end in nuclear holocaust or some such. Israel’s expansionist behavior is not helping to diminish this threat.
