SKETCH: Many-Headed Monster Delightfully Out of Control

Unusually, the Prime Minister called the Speaker. It’s usually the other way round.

The noise from Labour was so great – the raucous enjoyment of their weekly Ten Minute Hate – that on two occasions the Prime Minister shook his head and gestured towards the Speaker indicating he should intervene. The first time, the Speaker got up at once to call for quiet. The second time Cameron had to say: “Mr Speaker, really,” and up the Speaker popped up to do the bidding.

What a change!

Hard to say who won on noise.

As for the argument – gender politics. Not my subject, really.

Ed Miliband had prepared his attack by packing as many women as he could into his front bench. At 11.59 they’d managed six women to three men in the first nine. They needed another. Rachel Reeves looking almost sexist she’s so gorgeous (as I say, it’s not really my subject) went to sit on Ed Balls’ knee. What with his wife two seats down, Balls had to bump her off and onto the bench and that brought the male/female front bench numbers to 70/30 in favour of the females.

The pound gained 3 per cent against all major currencies.

“A picture’s worth a thousand words,” the Labour leader gloated, waving that funny thing he’s got at the end of his arm. There wasn’t a single woman on the Conservative front bench.

At best, Cameron had a woman right behind him. Anne MacIntosh tweeting, possibly. “Take that, Ed, ha!”

Cameron said the Tory female figures were 24 per cent of something and 48 up from 17 of something else. This was very good. Or a disgrace, depending on where you were sitting.

Cameron’s “We had the first woman prime minister,” produced goal-scoring celebration from Tories. “Yeah, and she actually won elections,” Miliband responded which drove his fans to their feet. Everyone having a terrific time.

Speaker’s turn for the worse

Suddenly the Speaker burst a blood vessel. He’d stood up and shouted for order, no one had paid him any attention and he’d sat down again. Now he addressed the Education secretary (we bullies know who to pick on). “Mr Gove!” (Laughter) “You really are a most excitable individual!” (Dissenting noises from Labour. They wanted a different description.) “ORDER!” (Looking as though he was going to hit someone) “You should write out a thousand times, ‘I must behave at prime minister’s questions!”

But his voice was going, and the noise actually increased. The House was out of control and the Speaker could only let it roar.

On occasions like this, we see how the Tory loathing, the product of years of abusive treatment from the Chair, is still bubbling beneath the surface.

Back to gender rage

Ed made the point that Cameron had greeted a high-profile business woman at a reception with the words: “Where’s your husband?”

The pound lost 3 per cent, and the output gap widened.

Miliband may be right that his core vote will be energized by hatred. Odd that such a mild-mannered, decent fellow should hope to become prime minister of Britain on the basis of a hate crime.

On with the show

Jack Dromey stood up. Robert Buckland called out, “Where’s your wife?” – or so Labour’s Kevin Brennan tweeted. Feelings about Mr Dromey are strictly non-party political.

The Birmingham MP told the House: “Queen Victoria was on the throne when the Dunlop factory in Erdington started making those big black things – what are they called? They’re circular, you know, they get pumped up really hard, fully-inflated some of them are enormous. Some of them so gigantic you think ‘No, too big for me, it’ll never fit!’ TYRES! Thank you!”

If he didn’t say that I must have drifted off half way through.

    Milibands a big girls blouse. Just look at the time and effort that was put into this charade by Labour. For what? No one cares a toss about how many women there are in his gang. Blair`s Babes didn`t last long nor will Millipede after today’s performance. The contrast with his gravitas acting performances a few weeks ago could`t be greater. What next, my conkers bigger than yours.

    The only Labour woman worth her salt is Kate Hoey …. But it baffles me how she can remain a member of such a discredited shower of shite party.

    Ed Miliband is such a fucking knobend.

    I t was only a couple of weeks ago that he was trying to sell the idea that he was going to try and get away from the playground exchanges which have so dominated PMQs for ages and be more serious, more assertive.

    And here we are barely two weeks later, with the Government’s finances in the shit, with unemployment a problem, with Labour trashing the EU debate in the Lords, with the Scottish referendum bearing down on us, with education reforms being announced and what does he focus on?

    … The number of women MPs on the Government front bench today. What a useless fucktard this man is. He is too fucking stupid to even be leader of the Labour Party.

    For the record Ed, with a group of witless harpies you’ve put into you Cabinet as an example of diversity, you’re not doing the argument much good – I mean look at that roster of dull, moaning fucking failures; Cooper, Harman, Reeves, Eagle… jesus wept what a bunch…

    See the video of him and his mate attacking the car of a disabled pensioner and you wonder what on earth the Cumbrian police are all about.
    Police internal enquiry said they were innocent and excess force not used, yet they paid £20000 for car damage. Its only public money.

    If ever there was a case for LESS women in Parliament it is the names and record of the Labour women MP’s.

    Ed will have his very own gender issues when his Balls get cut off.

    Being a Leeching Hunt of a Labour MP is nothing to be proud of.

    Time for Ed to get his own ideas & stop scrounging from the poor!

    Ed is having another of his crap idea crisis!

    Ed wants us to count the stupid cows that make up the Union funded Labour Party. Glenda Jackson is androgynous so she does not count. She does David Bowie impersonations on her day off.

    Still waiting for Labour to come up with a decent policy that does not destroy the economy. Labour is closed for business while Ed’s bimbos don’t have a clue about the real world. Step forward Rachel Reeves!

    I don’t care if they are male or female I just want the best MPs possible. Not that there is a lot to choose from, all as bad as each other.

    Yes Cameron missed a wide open goal there when Milipede was on about female numbers in parliament.

    Back from Rio then is he? Why was he let back in? Should have been arrested on the spot for traitorous economic sabotage.

    decent or descent?

    Life is so confusing when folk can’t spell simple English words correctly.

    Mind the gap - union loonies at work (or not, as the case may be) says:

    The fat Crow does not seem to realise that a huge number of workers on the London tube system are of ‘ethnic descent’ who will all be out of work once the fully automated tube comes into being. Where are they all going to go then?

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.”
