It was Acceptable in the 80s

If 22-year-old Vicky Fowler beats the incumbent Tory MP Marcus Jones in Nuneaton in two years’ time, she will become the first MP to have been born in the 1990s. His majority is only 2,069 so it is not beyond the realms of possibility. Vicky defeated former BBC reporter Miriam O’Reilly for selection. By comparison Sir Peter Tapsell (b. 1930) has served the House since 1959.

    “Fowler has previously worked for Birmingham MP Shabana Mahmood and was briefly a researcher for a London-based Public Affairs Company.”

    But isn’t this the kind of party-machined candidate that Ed Miliband was wanting to avoid?

I am someone of the highest integrity and what is important is that anyone who embarrasses me will be taken for a walk in the woods. I have to go now, as I have a meeting with some dictator, I mean important leader who’s paying me lots of money to provide my consultancy services as to how to handle accusations of human rights abuses.

    We might need a new finger pointer too after 2015.

    It was all Blair’s fault?

    Yeah, why not? No one likes Blair.
    And we only need imply he was the Tory Prime Minister from 1997 to 2010 to wipe away the stain of the labour years of waste and wars.

    I despair, I really do.

    The days when an MP had a few failed directorships under their belt, had fought some police action against fuzzy wuzzies in some fetid jungle, been photographed boozily kissing the Archbishop of Canterbury in mistake for the Ghanaian ambassador’s wife are long gone.

    Even the labour lot had had a string of failed jobs on various lefty unread newspapers. Had blackmailed plotted and bribed their way into union strongholds and sold countless secrets to the soviets.

    I dunno…young people today have it so easy.

    Yet this is the same lot that opposed EVERY single intervention of the evil ‘Boosh’ when he was in power. The lefties also ignore the role their beloved commies Russia and China play in destabilising these Countries and of course it’s them blocking any action by the UN. Not a single bad word for Putin or their beloved Obama who seems totally uninterested.

    I really don’t understand the left, they seem to have no brains, why the fuck should we give two shits about Syria or any other Muslim Country? We get no thanks for it.

    Dear Inverdale,

    As you know we have had an opportunity to consider your recent indiscretion which followed your appearance before us on the carpet on Monday.

    You have submitted character reference from J. Clarkson, R. Keays, A. Gray and a Mr Pikey. Unfortunately these will not do being representative of 70s males at its worst and this decade has been bad for us before.

    The offer of the proceeds of your autobiography, When the Sh@@ hits the Fan, is not considered adequate as you have not yet commenced to write it.

    So, we expect the best course would be either a new career at Talk Sport or submission to the Star Chamber, Mr S. Fry and M/s C. Balding where a subsidiary module to the LGBT training study is now available for unreconstructed males who insist on pandering to the opposite gender.

    Kindly respond on your intentions within 24 minutes,

    Then raise the scarlet standard
    high.
    Within its shade we’ll live and die,

    sneer,
    We’ll keep the red flag flying here.

    just to be serious for a second,
    I think the liberals and the hysterical left have some hole in their understanding where there should be a relationship with nature and humanity, it exists either as a birth defect or maybe from a bad life experience. They feel the presence of this space and when they are unfortunate by circumstance to meet a predator socialist this hole is filled with synthetic theoretical understanding but not the natural understanding.
    I think this is why they are so irritating

But then if he confronted by an alien thinker he knows that he is on dodgy ground so he has to be more cautious in his inquisitivness in case his brain should suddenly have a twitch or a frumpish moment and might say “stop, do not photograph that dying child, run to her, save her life, take a side.

    What a coincidence – over here in New Zealand we had a Sir Peter Tapsell in parliament, born eight days before your own Sir Peter Tapsell. Ours was a former orthopaedic surgeon, of Maori ethnicity, who ascended to the role of Speaker of the House – while your Sir Peter is Father of the House.
