    this is the huhne principle

  7. 7
    An awkward bastard says:

    No thanks to the Daily Telegraph I have just been in formed that some of these women making claims against Rennard are not averse themselves to spending time at the back of the bike sheds.

    What on earth has been going on here?

    No mention of it in Alistair Webster QCs report.

  8. 8
    VOTE UKIP says:

    Jo Coborn and Paddy Ashdown on DP laughing at the fact Nigel Farage who is recovering from a serious operation was hit on the head by a placard.

  9. 9
    davemcwish says:

    Maybe but these things tend to get written by legal types to ensure that the company and it’s message are protected rather than make something fluent for the great unwashed.

  10. 10
    Privatise the BBC says:

    Watch the last 3 minutes of today’s Daily Politics for some real BBC bias. They just couldn’t pack in any more invective.

  11. 11
    A man on the Rue Du Cirque says:

    What a woman gets up to with politicians of little ability in private should remain in private.

    I am extremely indignant when there are attempts to bring such matters into the public domain and most certainly you should not be insinuating that I am responsible in any way shape or form for my long term girlfriend recently having to be hospitalized .

  12. 12
    Non twit / twat says:

  21. 21
    Persona non grata says:

    Oh dear, yet another Monika bites the dust for daring to upset Fatty Fawke’s fragile ego.

    was Andrew Gimsom referring to Farage or Bloom when he mentioned the vulgar abuse that some women got from a certain kind of horrible boorish man, you get on social media? apparently they are to blame for women deserting the Tories in ever increasing No’s prior to 2015?

  22. 22
    Rumpy Pompidou says:

    The fact that a man is shown to be a lying, faithless twat who gorges at the public teat without remorse (or even mild embarrassment) should never be an issue in French public life. Jamais.

  23. 23
    Sir William Wayde says:

    The fact the a man enjoys boxing does not entitle you to hit him in the face.

  25. 25
    M­a­­q­bo­­ul says:

    It’s still better than the Independent and The Sun’s paywall is harder to get through than the Pentagon’s… so what to do?

  26. 26
    WTF says:

    Rewrite that in English and you might get a response.

  27. 27
    Miss Trust says:

    For some reason I am very suspicious about the authenticity of this evidence. Something ain’t right somewhere.


  28. 28
    M­a­­q­bo­­ul says:

    Presumably these women had a say in who joined them at the back of the bike sheds.

  29. 29

    Me too. It looks like a clear case of self h­arming.

  30. 30

  31. 31

    oops! There is a spare ‘o’ in there if anyone needs it.

  32. 32

  33. 33
    broderick crawford says:

    no . it was one of those games where all place their door keys into a box and after that it is the “luck” of the draw.

    No doubt it will remain an anti cannabis rag filled with bigoted scare stories with no substance, basically the same rag as the Daily mail but for people who can read words more than seven letters long(mail reader stumble at 6 the sun readers at 5. The intellectual content in these three at least on cannabis remains the same no matter how long the words are!

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
