Nads v Eleanor Laing For Deputy Speaker

As tipped by Guido, Nadine Dorries is throwing her hat into the ring for the Deputy Speaker job. Which certainly makes the race all the more interesting. Odds are shortening on Eleanor Laing, who has announced she is going to stand, is popular and hotly-tipped by Tory colleagues. She tells Guido she only thought of going for the job when she saw her name on this blog’s runners and riders. She denies she is Number 10’s candidate to the Standard.

    Nads is far too controversial, has too many skeletons rattling in the cupboard and comes from the wrong side of the M40. Pity, because Parliament would be enlivened with her in the chair. I’ve barely heard of the other one, so she’d probably do well as Deputy Speaker

      Simply because she is to fucking obese to stand as deputy speaker.

      She could sit or lie for the job however.

      The position is in the gift of the Conservative Party and Ms Abbott is a looney leftie.

      Why not? Because her fat posterior would not fit in the present chair & it would be a waste of taxpayers money buying a new chair. Apart from that she is totally unsuited for the job.

    I’m sick of hearing that miliband senior fought for his country. It reminds me of the late comedian Arthur Haynes referring to his life in the army as up to his knees in muck and bullets, and makes a mockery of the true heroes who have been wounded or died during their military service.
    Both my late father and father in law wee older than miliband and served the length of the war, starting when Miliband was 14-15 years old. They did their military service, but both would have considered saying ‘They fought for their country’ as a pure hypocritical statement. They simply did what was required of them.
    My grandfather fought in the First World War and was wounded by a bayonet, passing through his leg, in one side and out the other. He was also gassed and for years late was still being sick at the result. Even he would never be so arrogant to say he fought for his country. He simply did what was required of him and like most rarely mentioned it.
    This sick type of statement from red Ed shows how childish he is

            I mean when was he given British citizenship. Tried googling it but only found one ambiguous statement that “he was given British citizenship and became a lecturer in 1946″. If he only became British in 1946 then he was fighting for Belgium according to Ed.
