Dave PMQs Jibe Helped By Former Tennis Partner Andrew Castle

The PM returned Labour MP Gloria De Piero’s attempt to crowd-source her PMQ on Twitter by referencing the awkward first reply to her tweet. It turns out that reply was from Andrew Castle, her GMTV colleague who used to be Dave’s tennis partner:

Game, set and match…

    Indeed, former fellow GMTV presenter Andrew Castle…..

    How about, “Do you prefer boring or snoring Dave?”?

      Has Dave got a brand new pair of glasses today following the rumour yesterday that he had already worn out the pair he was given a few weeks Ago ?

      You’re supposed to use them as visual aids Dave , not orbital sanders to smooth down the new woodwork on the summer house in the Cotswolds !

    Labour are serving into the net all the time.

    The cracks are appearing. Rude emails to Newnight. Ed Balls has been silenced. Botched union speeches.

    Labour are on the slide and I look forward to watching this delectable decline!

    The only good that Del Piero fufills is getting her bits out thick as a bulls lug but definately shaggable.

    Even the BBC just grudgingly admitted that things are not going Ed’s way – since the Government is seeing the situation improve and unemployment falling. They should of course focus on the Government’s positives rather then Labour’s negatives…but it is a start.

    “41,000 food bank users under Labour- now 350,000. Why did no Labour MP make this contrast?”

      Because Labour are useless.

      Because I’m no good with numbers.

      Dave"The One Term Prime Minister" Cameron says:

      The fact that one of the richest nation on earth has foodbanks should be cause of widespread shame.

      It’s all the blame of the Conservative led coalition,of which I play no part.

      Give people food for free and it means they can spend their dole cash on beer and ciggies or iphone and Sky TV subscriptions

        Dave"The One Term Prime Minister" Cameron says:

        PM:” I’m proud of the numbers going to foodbanks”

        I can count on their vote in 2015.

          Andrew Efiong says:

          Big society in action, people in need are getting food from charity instead of having to sponge of the taxpayer.

          Most commendable!

        Bill Quango MP -x says:

        I know I’ve said this before but ..I recall working/middle class people queuing for the free butter and cheese that Ealing council had got from the brothers and sisters of the USSR and were dishing out from Acton town hall

        I was a delivery driver then. Working full time on good money.
        And I got loads of butter. Rationed to about 2 kg each i believe.

        …why not?..It WAS FREE!

        If you give away something for nothing you cannot then use those statistics to prove anything.

        For example – If your local petrol station said that all petrol was free this Friday, how long so we think the line for the filling station would be? Would the garage be pumping until the underground tanks were dry?

        Would this mean that x % and x numbers of people live in petrol poverty and cannot afford to put fuel in their motor?

      Under this government food is free whereas the welfare scum had to pay for it under labour.

    If a Food Bank appeared at the end of every street in the land, everyone would avail themselves of one.

    Acquisitiveness, especially something-for-nothing appeals to all of us.

      Exactly. You don’t need to be a brainbox economist to know that if you price something at zero the demand will be near-infinite.

    A very fitting question. Innit!

    Don’t expect Gloria to win her seat in 2015 either. Contrary to everywhere else, Lib Dems in Ashfield are making big gains at Labour’s expense. Labour are in disarray.

    Her own party locally know her as “Geoff Hoon in a skirt” because of the way she was parachuted in and never bothers visiting her own seat.

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.”
