WATCH: Lansley Burns Bercow

From his little throne, Bercow loves to tick off the government for leaking announcements online or in the press before they are announced in the House. Just two weeks ago he said:

“If something has been announced to the House about its future business, I would consider it courteous for the House to be informed formally of any change before the wider world is. A written statement would usually suffice, if there were not sufficient occasion or urgency to justify a supplementary business statement. I hope you will have heard the statement from the chair, to put it very candidly and bluntly these announcements should be made to the House not by the mechanism of Twitter. I think it’s pretty clear.”

So imagine Andrew Lansley’s delight when he got to make this Point of Order:

Delicious.

    Lansley makes an excellent point. For how long have backbenchers and the Speaker criticised ministers for briefing important announcements outside of parliament first?

    BTW – this new deputy Speaker is a bit shakey?

    The British media are cunts says:

    More lefty wank off the BBC. Luciana Berger another of Red Ed’s feminist drones was prattling on the BBC news about how terrible any delay in bringing in plain packaging for cigarettes was.

    Of course the obvious question to ask her was if that was so important, why didn’t Labour do it in their 13 years in power? Needless to say the gormless male BBC presenter didn’t ask that question.

    Then we have Radio 5 claiming that the Tories are close to the cigarette companies, hence their desire NOT to bring in plain packaging. The BBC of course fails to point out that it was LABOUR that was going to exclude cigarette advertising from Formula 1 thanks to a large bung from Bernie Ecclestone.

    The BBC must think we’re all fucking stupid.

    The Speaker will take just as much notice of that as anyone else in public life does, i.e. absolutely none.

    Zero hour contracts and sanctioning, see, just look what we can do for you, we can make you go so hungry that you have to seek hospital treatment, that is the Tory contract. We make you fear that you’ll lose your home, we will make you fearful of not taking a job that would put you on the road of poverty pay. We will punish you for being disabled, we will punish you for being ordinary, we will punish you thoroughly for ALL our mistakes.

    We did it, just for you, don’t thank us, please, it comes naturally to us

    Tony E says:

    Yes, and not too sure of her role I suspect. I’m sure that this is a matter for the chair, as it is the chair (in the person of Speaker Bercow) acting under his parliamentary authority who has raised the issue.

    It was also house business Qs this morning, which makes the omission rather more abusive of the process.

    Blue Peter Goldfish says:

    You have to remember that their brains are so coke addled the 13 years of a Labour government is but a distant dream to them, fond memories set in sunny uplands, Iraq, Afghanistan, mass immigration, financial crash, £trillion + debt etc ,etc. I won’t go into detail, you could write it on a fag packet.

  40. 40
    Tony E says:

    Or at least enough of them to see Labour home and dry in 2015.

    It’s amazing how penetrative a lie is if it repeated often enough, those unsure of their views can be easily persuaded over particular issues, so long as the narrative is consistent.

    Where is the fault in this Lefty Logic says:

    So.

    The Spin is.

    Aging population needs more carers ( applies to socialist welfare state)

    Import carers, their families, extended families and extended families’ families.

    Population grows because of imports, more carers required.

    Import carers, their families, extended families and extended families’ families.

    Population grows because of imports, more carers required.

    Where will it all end?

    Vote Tory get heir to Blair says:

    “Zero-hours contracts were around for years before they got on to the political agenda and took a ritual kicking. The truth is that zero-hours contracts don’t do people any harm. It is poor managers who do that. And poor managers can employ people on all sorts of contracts.

    The really interesting thing about the research the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) has published is that we found zero-hours workers were just as satisfied with their work as the average worker – regardless of contract type. Even more tellingly, they were noticeably more satisfied with their work-life balance.”

    Is this from The Daily Mail? No it is from the Guardian.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
