Colonel Bob Saved From Wife’s Fury

Good news:

I am extremely grateful to all colleagues who assisted in the re-capture of my ‘Absent without Leave’ Mont Blanc pen.  The fugitive was recaptured by an honourable and gallant lady who personally took him in custody and thereafter returned it, in close arrest, to my person.  In recognition of her actions I have recommended Sub Lieutenant Penny Mordaunt RNR for my first ever Parliamentary Mention in Despatches.  Thanks to her thoughtful and immediate actions I do not have to own up to my Home Station Commander that I was negligent – thus avoiding serious restrictions of privileges.

Thanks Colleagues.  All is well and I live to write another day.

Guido reckons the publicity that this site gave the great matter of state would surely be worthy of a prize too? Nigel Evans also wondered something in the middle of the night, CC’ing all MPs:

    Reuters Cramp says:

    Is there any truth to the rumour that Nigel Farage has recently said in private, that if UKIP keeps improving their popularity ratings, culminating in him becoming Prime Minister, he intends to appoint Jimmy Carr as his Treasury Minister. Not only does he say they speak with one voice on taxation and off shore avoidance schemes, Jimmy will also work for nothing out of the public purse, as he has arranged to be sponsored by Vodafone, Google, Amazon and Starbucks for the duration of his portfolio?

          Breaking news – bar has been lowered by UKIP supporters for openness and honesty, but only for Wing Commander Farage.

        Nobody at the BBC does any work. They’re employees, not workers. Sorry if this seems like splitting hairs, but seeing BBC people described as ‘workers’ grates.

      The office of Sarah and Gordon Brown says:

      I wonder what idiot was at the Treasury for 10 years when all of these ridiculous tax avoidance schemes were sanctioned.

      I bet it was the same moron who sacked tax collectors as being a ‘waste of money’ and then sold off the actual Whitehall Treasury buildings in a lunatic PFI scheme to an off shore, tax efficient, brass plate vehicle .

      I bet whoever it was is embarrassed about it all now.

    Owen Jones(Leader Of The Opposition) says:

    Scotland Yard is embroiled in a new corruption crisis after it emerged that senior officers allegedly knew for years that criminal private investigators had compromised its highly sensitive witness protection programme – and allegedly did nothing about it.

    Days after the Metropolitan Police was rocked by incendiary claims that officers took part in a smear campaign against the family of the murdered black teenager Stephen Lawrence, The Independent can disclose that private investigators (PIs) were employed by organised crime gangs to try to intimidate witnesses who had agreed to give evidence in high-profile trials.

    Scotland Yard uncovered the shocking intelligence up to 15 years ago but, incredibly, did next to nothing to stop the private detectives, who also worked for the News Of The World. A registered police informant codenamed “Michael Green”, who spent years undercover working with a corrupt firm of PIs, warned his handlers at the Met that his colleagues were trying to locate “supergrasses” under police protection and “actively worked on them to withdraw their damaging allegations”.

    But, for reasons yet to become clear, the Met failed to charge or even arrest the investigators for intimidating key witnesses. One of the supergrasses who was approached while under police protection later withdrew all of his original testimony, resulting in the collapse of a major criminal trial.

    The news comes days after a former Met officer, Peter Francis, claimed he was asked find “dirt” and spy on Stephen Lawrence’s relatives in a bid to undermine the campaign to bring his killers to justice. Details of Scotland Yard’s witness-protection programme being compromised were included in a Serious Organised Crime Agency (Soca) report which was suppressed by the agency but leaked to The Independent.

    C’mon Guido!

    It does not take much to solve.

    The pen is mightier than the [pork] sword.

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.”
