    For heaven’s sake, Eastleigh, punish him! And Cameron too, for that matter.

      Bit much to expect of a group of people who believed Huhne was all about family values……

    The man’s an LD politician. Of course, therefore, he’s inept, incompetent, useless and dangerous.

    Where are Tony Blair's expenses says:

    Starters for 10 – he lied about

    1. Tuition fees

    2. Supporting boundary changes

    3. Lied about Kennedy being a drunk

    4. Appointed liars to his cabinet, Huhne and Laws

    etc, etc

      I am so very sorry.

      Mr Quelch says:

      He’s a politician ergo a liar QED . But, not in the big league yet – some pretty stiff competition out there Cleggy – you’ll have to do better than this if you want a seat at the top table of mendacity.

    Why all the concern over Clegg when there is Andy Burnham and Tony Blair to really have a go at. Who out of the three is the biggest liar?

    I belive it is time for me to take that job in brussels which mandelson of ethics had

    It will fill my address book full of all those pillaging oligarchs and assorted asian traders who will ensure a prosperous retirement for me

      Equality for everyone – so Lynn Featherstone and Diane Abbott tell me

      Hardly, nor would it be justified. The real debate is above and below and to hopefully be heard against Rennard in the criminal court. Guilt by association went out with the ark in terms of not investigating criminal womanisers. Do you travel on bandwagons as an occupation?

    Just to tell you all

    I am now a Cardinal to keep up with Archbishop Mandelson of all things ethical

    It has been brought to my attention that Monday follows Sunday. I was not aware of this fact until a few moments ago. I’m really sorry.

    The Right Honourable George Osborne MP says:

    I think we’ve got a very clear message, a loud and clear message that Britain cannot let up in dealing with its debts, dealing with its problems, cannot let up in making sure that Britain can pay its way in the world.

      That’s why we are investing in new printing presses immediately.

        City and workers in the UK says:

        We like this. It means we get paid more. Not so if you’re already on a fat public pay packet with easy working conditions. Not so if you’re sitting on money and not doing anything with it. And not so if you’re a benefit claimant. I wonder if Labour would back QE or watch exports cripple again.

    BBC Cover Up says:

    We are not sorry for anything we have done. Our aim is to waste license fee payers money on non-jobs.
    Clegg is just another welcome distraction, allowing us to get away with our lies and deceit.

    Nick Clegg at Southwark says:

    Guilty as charged

    Nick will be a worthy successor in brussels to lord patten
    Lord mandelson and lord britten dont you think?

    where the blind lead says:

    Just another day in the moral gutter of Westminster, just one more sign of the moral decay infecting the degenerate political class. Our leaders feeling able to lie to us openly and consistently and without remorse. But let us cast our minds back to the weeks before Kennedy the alcoholic resigned as leader of the libdems and Clegg appearing on the BBC stating that Kennedy was not a drunkard and did not suffer from alcohol dependency.

    And the convicted criminal Huhne who continuously proclaimed his innocence right up until the minute he admitted his guilt, knowingly lying to everyone without shame. Yes the libdems are degenerate liars and their partners the Tories are pathological liars and the labour party are world class liars. The entire edifice is rotten to the core and needs to be swept away, unfortunately things are going to have to get a whole lot worse first.

    Thank god for this.

    The cover of the mag says “..Nick Clegg faces an inquisition …”

    A Spanish Inquisition – perhaps?

      M'lud says:

      Hopefully a Sir Menzies Campbell led one, he is the only one with a decent enough legal background and authority to tell them all to investigate things by referring matters immediately to the police. And if totally falling short of police investigation forming an official view as to what happened and taking disciplinary action.

        Blowing Whistles says:

        Not so quick buster – Menzies the mong ming – has history at the Faculty of Advocates Scotland – and they have been covering up despicable crimes against the Scottish people.

    M'lud says:

    Does it take the pressure off the Stafford incidents?

    Or does it make your problems seem a whole lot worse? What was it Gordon Brown said about “investing in line with growth” and “spreading out the long-term cost of borrowing” that led to so many deaths, could it have been pure money-making under you?

      I was only obeying orders and following civil servants’ advice…

        M'lud says:

        That was what the Nazis said even in back office roles. Do people think you spent the money and entered contracts in the NHS on the right things? Or do they think that in many cases such buildings seem short-term and better nursing should have been the priority…

    Dear everyone out there : any suggestions regarding the best country to which one can emigrate without too much aggro?
    Please, you guys, this is a genuine enquiry. It could soon apply to half the country.
    Thanking you in anticipation.

      M'lud says:

      Ireland is lovely and relatively cheap. France can be lovely if you have a flair for French. Equally Germany. However my best suggestion is of course Australia, ensure you work in logistics, transport, farming or mining and you will be on to a lush salary and may be able to retire to Jersey.

        Work in Westminster/Whitehall for a few years, rub people up the right way and come and live in St Helier/St Brelade/St Peter’s Port. It’s lovely out here. Douglas is fun too!

      It's a secret says:

      Dear Bongo, Do honestly expect us expats to divulge our best kept secrets? We emigrated to get away from the British riffraff and to reveal our whereabouts now would be just like opening the door to immigration (which was of course your greatest mistake). Nonetheless, always remember gewgel is your friend.

    Rush out and buy The Sunday Times Magazine today
    Or for live soccerball action 24/365, get a Sky subscription, and see Steve Coogan’s new comedy series too!

    Sentencing Judge says:

    ‘Coogan’ and ‘comedy’ in the same sentence.
    Shome mishtake, shurely ?

    Yes you would.

    A wink is the same as a nod to a blind man. Perhaps that is the Cleggish way of thinking.

    Odeous says:

    Chris Huhne was above any crime
    Even a small speeding fine
    When his wife took the heat
    He lied to the Beak
    Now he is waiting to do time

    and:

    If that wasn’t enough of a tale
    There now is yet more to regale
    Lord Renard’s been flirty
    Or should one say, dirty
    Fib Dems in Eastleigh must FAIL

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.”
