Why is Bercow so Grumpy?

Tearooms are rumbling about why the Speaker seems so tetchy recently.

He was certainly in a mood during PMQs and then lost it completely with Philip Hammond shortly after.

Hope everything is okay at home…

    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.

            Because MPs have a duty to represent their constituents not rip them off all the time. MPs should take a pay cut of at least 20%. I’m feeling really enriched and excited today in my super diverse multicultural UK shithouse of a Country.

          When David Cameron said that he was the heir to Blair he was quite correct.

          Like Blair, he is a fifth columnist who is leading a party he despises.

          Blair lost the Labour Party five million votes in a decade and Cameron is on course to achieve the same pro rata losses for the Tories. He is like a restaurant owner who runs an Indian takeaway but when people order from the menu who delivers fish and chips to their table because he thinks he knows better than those he serves. He has an Eton complex.

          The only way to prevent a defeat for the Conservatives lies in a programme of economic growth which Asperger George will not allow. He too has an Eton complex.

          I will offer any of Guido’s readers 10/1 odds that the Conservatives will lose the next election.

          The next election was lost on the playing fields of Eton.

            Ed Miliband only has to sit back and watch the Tory party make itself obsolete.

            And I can assure you that I am not a fan of Ed, but as that donkey is going to win me a rake of money from Guido’s readers it would be rude of me to be too harsh on him.

            10/1 odds say the Tories will be defeated in the general election.

            Are any of Guido’s readers brave enough to take that bet?

      Maybe we need a bit of history to repeat itself.

      In 1856 Senator Sumner denounced the Kansas-Nebraska Act. In his “Crime against Kansas” speech on May 19 and May 20.

      Two days later Senator Brooks confronted Sumner as he sat writing at his desk in the almost empty Senate chamber:

      .. Brooks beat Sumner severely on the head before he could reach his feet, using a thick gutta-percha cane with a gold head. Sumner was knocked down and trapped under the heavy desk (which was bolted to the floor), but Brooks continued to strike Sumner until Sumner ripped the desk from the floor. By this time, Sumner was blinded by his own blood, and he staggered up the aisle and collapsed, lapsing into unconsciousness. Brooks continued to beat the motionless Sumner until his cane broke at which point he left the chamber.

      Sumner’s supporters were outraged. Demanding Brooks expulsion from the senate and trial for assault.

      meanwhile Brooks supporters sent him dozens of brand new canes, with one bearing the phrase, “Good job”.

      Major Percival and the Essex Regiment came to West Cork in 1920. He specialised in rounding up innocent farm labourers and interrogating them as IRA suspects, and had a trademark habit of using a pair of pliers to rip off their fingernails and foreskins during interrogation.

      Having followed his subsequent career closely, it was with great interest some twenty years later that the people of West Cork watched General Percival surrender Singapore to the Japanese.

            The legitimacy of the “authorities” had been in question for 700 years.

            There is, however, a terrible irony in the fact that it all started when
            Pope Adrian IV (an Englishman) took it upon himself to issue the ‘Laudabiliter’ document giving the Angevin King Henry II the ‘right’ to assume control over Ireland.

            A growing body of historical opinion holds that the document was interfered with by Giraldus Cambrensis, a Welsh bishop of the time, during its delivery from Rome, and altered to give this ‘authority’ to Henry.

      Jonestic:

      The word jonestic is used differently depending on location, which has led to some controversy and misunderstanding. Derived via Latin from the Greek jonestikos (“going on” or “bullshitting”), the word originally referred to an expression of poltical views affected by the mental condition jonesticity, which is seen in jonestic confabulation and many other forms of political medacity and in terms such as “jonestic economic bluffing”, with no negative connotation on the BBC, as it is accurately descriptive of the condition. On Channel 4 the word “jonestic” is also used neutrally.[citation needed]

      The word in common speech can also be used in a pejorative context. The level of severity depends on whether one understands it as it is used in the Guido Fawkes blog or the rest of the United Kingdom.[1] In the UK it is also considered an offensive way to refer to disabled people.

        Jonesism /ˈfæʃɪzəm/ is a form of radical authoritarian nationalism[1][2] that came to prominence in early 21st-century Stockport. Jonesists seek to unify their nation through a totalitarian state that promotes the mass mobilization of the national community,[3][4] relying on a vanguard party to initiate a revolution to organize the nation on Jonesist principles.[5] Hostile to liberal democracy, Labourism, and Conservatism, Jonesist movements share certain common features, including the veneration of the state, a devotion to a strong leader, and an emphasis on ultranationalism and militarism. Jonesism views political violence, war, and imperialism as a means to achieve national rejuvenation[3][6][7][8] and asserts that stronger nations have the right to obtain land and resources by displacing weaker nations

          The term “Anti-Jonesist” is commonly used by the BBC to describe its opponents; in this usage the term obviously carries negative and pejorative connotations. Cameron’s secret police, working in conjuction with UAF has set up the the Organisation For the Surveillance and Represssion of Anti-Jonesism, or OSRAJ, to stamp down on anti-Jonesism on the internet and in the media generally

          In the UK, anti-Jonesists — many from the right and centre of politics, but including some elements of the Labour Party— have fought against the violent UAF and the Jonesists, and against the rise of Jonesist leader Len McLuskey, or have at least had a few lattes and muttered about doing so between bites of their pastries.

          After some trade unions led by UNITE have adopted a pro-Jonesist strategy, members of the workers’ movement who agree with this strategy formed the People’s Assembly. The People’s Assembly is considered an important element of the Glorious Vanguard by Common Purpose and helpful in identifying useful idiots.

          • “Wanking” redirects here. For the Biblical origin of the term “Jonanism”, see Jonanism

            Jonanism is the sexual stimulation of one’s own genitals, usually to the point of orgasm.[1] The stimulation can be performed using the hands, fingers, everyday objects, or dedicated sex toys.[2] Mutual Jonanism, which is Jonanism with a partner, can take the form of non-penetrative sex.

            Social attitudes towards masturbation have continued to be a subject of contention throughout history and in most cultures. In the West, this social taboo has generally declined and there has been an increase in discussion and portrayal of Jonanism in television, films and literature. However, most religions consider Jonanism to be a sin, and in many socially conservative areas the stigma about Jonanism is greater, where even discussion of the topic is restricted by social norms. Jonanism is usually carried out in private, and public Jonanism is illegal in most countries

            Jonanism can also take place for the purpose of assisted reproduction, for instance in the case of in vitro fertilization (in jurisdictions where these medical procedures are legal). Animal Jonanism has been observed in many species, both in the wild and in captivity.[3][4][5] Some religions consider Jonanism to be a sin.[6]

Before Miliband spoke, a school choir sang ‘Fix You’ by Coldplay. The first verse of which goes like this:

“When you try your best, but you don’t succeed
When you get what you want, but not what you need
When you feel so tired, but you can’t sleep
Stuck in reverse”
