Troughers Vote Against Recall Bill

Zac Goldsmith’s bill proposing to allow constituents to recall corrupt MPs passed its first reading by 127 votes to 17 this afternoon. Worth looking at a few of the names who voted against.

There is Labour’s Frank Dobson, who lives in £1 million council flat despite earning three times the average wage.

What about Brian Donohoe, who put through a £2,575 expense claim for one three-seat and two double-seater sofas.

Tom Harris with his three iPads at the taxpayers’ expense.

Not to mention John Baron, who bought a three-bedroom house £153,500, claimed expenses on the mortgage repayments, and then sold the property for £250,000.

And finally Paul Beresford, who through his second job as a dentist, designated his west London property, which includes his surgery, as his second home on expenses.

What possible reason could they have for voting against?

    Seeing as the Tories are going to get annihilated on 7th May 2015, they might as well go out with a bang and hand over an even bigger clusterfuck to Labour.

    Instead of a scorched earth policy they should do what the Romans did and salt the earth itself so nothing can grow for years.

    They should also leave a note for Ed Balls saying “goodbye and thanks for all the fish” :-)

    Leave Paul Beresford alone!

    He is hard working to the maxillary and is the member for Molar Valley which is an amalgam of Guildford and Woking. He caries deeply about his constituents, has a plaque on his house and distals his own whisky. He suffered from mesials as a young boy and thus became occusalled from school but recovered completely by walking his canines. His surgery is hardly palatal but he treats mesiolingual patients from the mandibular regions without making them feel inferior.

    With Tory it would be 500,000 immigrants a year, but lots of talk about restrictions.
    With Labour you’d they’d let 750,000 in but they’d claim it was 200,000. The real figure would be 900,000.
    With Liberals it would be unlimited immigration and all would be welcomed.

    So a petition of x,000 constituents? A submission to the house? Some faffing around? A referendum on him actually being ditched? A by-election to replace him? So in about 4 years time he… oh hang on… theres a general election before then…

    Give us 3 year parliaments and you won’t need recall – a re-election will already be imminent by the time you find out about any dubious behavior!

    Give everyone on the electoral register the right to register a recall vote and if 51% do so, the representative must stand down.

I certainly had not meant to gum the discussions up but merely gingival the conversation up a bit.

    I’ll say so Tammy. Why are they all coming? Economy doing great there? Lots of jobs? not really John. It’s just that the Europeland senate made a treaty of some sort. Imagine if Obama decided that all Mexicans could legally move to America…

    I sure could imagine Obama doing that..but..if there are no jobs.. .

    Well quite John. But in Engerlondon people can get unlimited welfare for an unlimited time wether thy are from Engerland or someplace else. And the government will give a house and a pension to anyone that wants one..

    What! Anyone can just get a free house?

    Em..well no..not anyone..UK residents can’t. Only immigrants..oh..and everyone here has free healthcare. Everyone. No credit needed.

    So..are the people happy with this, Tammy?

    Well… The immigrants sure are. But there is no sign of anyone asking for boatloads of poor, huddled masses..only the politicians.

    Well why don’t the people do something about it? If that was my country,..

    As far as I can tell, John. The public are just panty-waist liberal pinkos who don’t really care so long as the PBS is good. And it is pretty good..they make Top Gear here,you know?

    Ok..well thanks Tammy. And goodbye Engerland you cream puff, cuckold has been whiny, nation… Grow a pair you commie loving bed setters and take your country back! Or you will end up like France and everyone will take the piss.

    None of these agencies opinions are worth as damn – as the entire history of credit agencies’ involevment in financial frauds from long before Enron to date demonstrates amply

  151. 151

    That is extraordinary! Your second guess is spot on. Somewhere between England and the River Inn, a fucking mega-cold managed to get me and two week later I am still in the late stages of fighting it off by the side of the sunny but cold Adriatic.

    My approach has been deliberately not been serious today as I have been doing practical work up ladders but the idea that a 70 year old MP should be a practising dentist is just too much to resist. I already knew a load of dental terms but when you research, there are fucking thousands of them. I could write a whole book on it and it reminds me of Stanley Unwin and the way he used to contort words which sounded right on the face of it but simply ended up as gibberish. It is sheer genius to do this in the way that he did and I can only attempt a pale reproduction.

    I like to mix my stuff. I do like writing serious pieces, if the situation demands. Sometimes you just want to have a laugh. Sometimes you try but it just turns out crap.

    Sometimes you say something frivolous and manage to accidentally alight on a great truth that really needed saying. These, and more, all happen to me but I am sure that I am not alone in this.

    You might as well say that the only thing which is ‘unusual’ is something which is NOT unusual.

    One of the Eagle Brothers was really pissed with Brillo who showed her that despite Miliband’s contrived ‘cost of living crisis’, the ‘proper’ measure, real disposable income, as measured by the official statistics shows that household income is going up.

    Labour, are taking a leaf out of the 1960’s left wing agitators rule book, concocting crisis after crisis and trying to co-opt everyone into their doom and gloom agenda.

    Actually DP was a case of beauty and the beast today. On the one hand there was Eagle, on the other Jo Coburn, looking really rather hot. I wonder if she was off to lunch after the show, followed by a French afternoon.

    badger (n.)
    1520s, perhaps from bage “badge” (see badge) + -ard “one who carries some action or possesses some quality,” suffix related to Middle High German -hart “bold” (see -ard). If so, the central notion is the badge-like white blaze on the animal’s forehead (cf. French blaireau “badger,” from Old French blarel, from bler “marked with a white spot;” also obsolete Middle English bauson “badger,” from Old French bauzan, literally “black-and-white spotted”)

    Unfortunately, Badger is also the brand name of Hall & Woodhouse of Blandford. I have heard it said that one should not take the piss out of this beer as it would not otherwise have any flavour left. Uncharitable.

    Decimation is from the Ancient Roman Army disciplinary procedure where every 10th soldier was executed by his comrades. I’m more than happy to remove this duty from your representatives and do it for them. I think execution of 65 of them might get the message a across but no harm in keeping at it in 10% increments till they do.

    Looks like a gallus, one of the followers of the goddess Cybele who have their manhood removed to follow cult. Though to be honest they are usually easier on the eye than this one.

    Heartily sick of it my friend, and also the BBC’s slavish adoration of slebs and their incosequential doings.
    If you have enough money not to notice over 500k going missing you deserve to get shafted is as many ways as is humanly possible.
    Apox on all their houses!

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
