    Given that it’s Vernon Coaker, he’s probably on a bloody sun bed…..

        He’s not working at my expense., he doesn’t claim a penny in taxes or subsidies.

          Yes. She’s sat on her fat public sector arse. In the pub.

            They have all gone to see my latest movie, starring me, but I haven’t been mentioned in the papers for absolutely ages. Must have a word with Divine I’m sure she’ll remember me. Feeling Hacked off though, no mentions in press.

      Ed Miliband's Diary says:

      Today started badly when I awoke to discover the water bed had been leaking again during the night. Then I recalled I have never owned a water bed.

      All quiet in The Commons. Then Ed Balls turned up asking to borrow a fiver. He said he had a red-hot twenty-to-one cert for the four-thirty, whatever that means. I said he’d have to ask Justine as I’ve already lent him all my pocket money this week.

      Labour Party support seems to have tipped back into recession of late. I tried to organise a sing-song among the backbenchers to raise morale, but nobody wanted to join in with “We’re on the road to nowhere.” I really don’t know what else to do.

    The Right Honourable George Osborne Mp says:

    We have a slow & difficult recovery because of difficulties in the banking system, but 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.

    It’s what we call light touch government. There’s a lot to be said for the approach and we should have more of it.

      If she’s a socialist (the word ‘moron’ is superfluous in this context), it won’t tajke her long to curdle the milk.

    Quite . simple explanation .

    they had to vacate urgently owing to a decades long build up of hot air and halitosis combining with an effluent of mould and fungal growth risking a repetition of the black death in westminster palace .

    not acceptable apparently under Health and Safety.

      The black death was apparently caused by [deserting] rats – so they were obviously in the right place there!

    Can’t see what the complaint is about except for the fact we pay taxes and expenses to people who pretend to run this country, when we all know it’s the EU el presidenti’s and EU’s so called civil service.

    £3.6m for the funeral costs of one of our greatest leaders.
    Less than the average ‘earnings’ of a premiership nancyboy football player.
    Get a fucking life all of you detractors. While I’m at it 14hr shift finished today, won’t see the wife who does 12 hr shifts, for week and half. I’m not complaining so get a fucking job you scoungers. Endorsed by Budweiser.

    max bygraves says:

    There’s a lot of rubbish on here about entitlement. Let me tell you of my neighbour. A married man who can only spend 30 days in the country because he doesn’t want to pay tax. He has properties in other countries such as Australia, Ireland and South Africa. He has an inherited title and likes everyone to call him ‘sir’ rather than by first name. He recently was in this country to attend to some matters such as reposting his boundaries. In conversation with me he said reposting was necessary to keep the cattle from roaming across boundaries. When I asked him if he was going to keep cattle he said no. His land is arable and he grows for the animal feed market. So after a couple of days effort on his part he had completed those areas he wanted to do in the time before he had to leave the country. I walked around my garden to find that he had tied all his new posts to the trees in my garden, on my land without even asking.

        Simple Simon says:

        Quite right. Remove the posts and replace them firmly (try cementing them in) on your own borders, otherwise you will eventually be involved in disputes over where the lines are.

    I was having a bit of a snooze and woke up and just saw your piece.
    Can’t believe they’ve all buggered off and no one knocked the door to say it was home time.
    Look at the bloody time. I’ve never been here so late on a Thursday before.
    I’ll be stuck in all the ordinary people’s commuter time. Trains packed and smelling of Burger King and Lynx Africa and Nina Ricci Fantasy.
    All those Swedes with bloody rucksacks the size of their house and office slappers comparing tit tattoos.

    Oh..the horror..

    Why didn’t I wake up at 3pm! I’d be home by now and starting the weekend.

    I blame the cuts.

    They did heed my admonition at last!
    They departed, and we have had done with them!

    There really should be an element of MP salary which is dependent on the number of appearances in the House.

    And what would poor Gordon do then?

    • 94

      In case you missed it, Gordon is now firmly ensconced on the UN gravy train – and thus has no real need of his MP’s paltry stipend.

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.”
