Gordon Slapped Down, Again

How refreshingly honest of the Prime Mentalist to admit that his abandoned constituents are “hard-pressed and increasingly angry”. Gordon’s last question about Dalgety Bay left him with egg on his face, and yesterday he was embarrassed again by Defence minister Andrew Robathan:

“I will explain why we dispute much of what the right hon. Gentleman has said in a moment, but there is one thing that I particularly dispute. I know that when he was Prime Minister, and indeed when he was Chancellor of the Exchequer, he was very profligate with public money.

He was very willing to spend it, and then to leave us in the appalling financial condition in which we now find ourselves. I must tell the right hon. Gentleman that we take a rather more parsimonious and sensible view than I think he did when it comes to the spending of our constituents’ money… In closing, may I say how pleased I am to see the right hon. Gentleman in the House?”

Makes you wonder why he bothers…

      There will be no video. There will be no anti-Labour slurs. There will be no inconvenient facts on the BBC.

        No video? Sightings of the Loch Ness Monster are more regular than the Member For Kircaldy. You’d have thought someone would have had a camera. Or do we have to put up with a blurred image in the distance could be a half sunken tree?

          I caught this live last night and there was gordo flanked by two lackies and between the 3 of them they failed to land a punch on the defense sec.

    What the hell’s happening to the Pryce verdict?

    The jury was out ALL yesterday. And it’s now an hour into the next day.

    It’s not THAT complicated, surely.

    Or did they pick another bunch of aliens?

      They’ve been ordered to stay in the jury room until they reach the proper ‘Not guilty’ conclusion.

        That would be preferable, as a guilty verdict would cast doubt on the marital coercion defence and could result in a more lenient sentence for Huhne. I know what I’d prefer to see….

          If I were A-G then I’d appeal a non-guilty as any spouse could then get off on a non-violent criminal offence where both stand accused. E.g. fraud, where clearly that would apply. No offence Diane but the defence has been hackneyed by Kelsey-Fry QC to fit his client’s incredible scenario.

      They are still deliberating. Cannot be rushed.

      No indication if judge has ordered majority rather than unanimous yet. Judge can do this after the first two hours.

        One does ‘majority’ mean?

        And ‘verdict’?

        What has been going on? I’m really missing day time tele. I wonder whether we’ll get out in time to see Countdown. Oh do stop talking, how am I supposed to know whether he is guilty or not. I am suspicious of the guy in the wig – I think he is guilty.

          > I am suspicious of the guy in the wig – I think he is guilty.

          After reading about “our” judicial system for a long time this is probably a wise decision.

    The alleged “representative” of Kirkcaldy opens his mouth and proves beyond doubt yet again that he is a fool.

    Time he was sent off to do a litter pick on his radioactive beach me thinks.

    How did Goron become the Prime Minister of a democracy without a single vote cast and the standing Prime Minister promising at his election to serve a full third term?

    I’m surprised the men in white coats actually let him out unaccompanied. We can refuse him entry after Scottish independence , so hope Scots vote in favour.

    What would he do if he left Parliament? Fester in Kirkcaldy, writing a shite book that no-one will buy?

    Has someone not told McNutter that North Korea’s Kim Yong Yuk has
    beckoned his presence after his illustrious career at the top of politics &
    his special place in history for saving the Universe & beyond

    It would seem foolish for McNutter to decline to visit his country & personally
    inspect the latest Gullags….whether McNutter would ever be allowed back here again is another story……

    But I suppose from Sue’s point of view given the blame that was & still is being heaped on her, after the fcuking bigot story that McNutter provoked, Sue’s personalised unique revenge will be even sweeter once it happens……

    Why doesn’t he just take the Peerage he’s entitled to and then nobody will be bothered whether he turns up or not.

      Socialist Worker says:

      Tht’s easy: Peers get paid a daily um only if they swipe in on that day.

      MPs, who are thought to work full time in Westminster (aye right!) are paid a salary plus big expenses without ever having to set foot in the palce.

      The bigot has done his sums and prefers to skulk in Jock land as an MP.

    Whata prat Gordo is.

    Dalgety Bay was MOD, but has been passed to civilian control.

    As such questions should be directed to Alex Salmond at the Scottish Assembly in Edinburgh, Westminster has no involement in devolved affairs pertaining to Scotland.

    You would expect then Hon Member for Kirkcaldy and Cowdenbeath to know that.

    Blair resigns ,Camm jumps up to lead an applause as he leaves Parliament
    on his way to see the Queen ,its Browns big chance no election he has waited
    for this. Blair at this point could have been warned by the Pope it was time
    to get out and leave the poisin chalice to the Mentalist who had fucked
    the country up ,now this is what should happen a full ivestigation into
    why our gold was sold for euro notes jack and the beanstalk, and the
    big fuck up with the banks, and worse of all our old age stolen with
    the pension tax .

    Gordon made his greatest contribution to the welfare of this country when he resigned. He can now improve on that by emigrating.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
