Twitter Bitch Fight of the Week: Mensch v Shippers

Following her Twitter Bitch Fight win over Owen Jones last week, Louise Mensch is taking on all comers.

In her sights last night was Daily Mail political duo James Chapman and Tim Shipman, so the audience could expect a bit more of a heavyweight clash.

They were not disappointed:

Score draw. Rematch!

    Mitch says:

    Her replies don’t seem to relate to his tweets, anyway? And none of it is interesting..

    Meanwhile Britain sinks under water and Cameron’s incompetence.

    Dave calls me Chappers at his pressers. And that bloke from the Guardian, he calls him that bloke from the Guardian.

    If this was the UK, lefties would demand their release for committing murder says:

    It’s so reactionary to want to imprison murderers

    And now for something completely different. says:

  13. 13
    B. says:

    Social cleansing is a direct policy of this government.

    Surely, because we are a ‘wealthy country’ and there will be ‘unlimited funds available for people who have lost their homes’ all this will be cleared up by Dave ‘all in together’ Cameron.

    Class war is already happening. Time to fight back

    A more interesting tweet came from Mensch over the weekend when she pointed to a piece in the DM a couple of weeks back that highlighted the fact that the East Anglia low-lands have not been affected by the severe wet weather probably because the EA has no responsibility for keeping them dry.

    Modbot wouldn’t let me post the tweet at the time for some reason.

    Fuck, she isn’t preggers is she?

    Iain Duncan Smith says:

    Terrible bedroom tax stats today: 1. Two-thirds of households in arrears 2. Third of disabled people refused help 3. 50,00 wrongly affected.

    This Conservative led coalition is bloody useless.

    Care to translate? Tho when it comes to bitch fights, it’s hardly the finesse of the full nelsons that draws the crowds, I suspect.

    BBC Red Bottom says:

    We always get a bit nervous with the Daily Politics.
    They can go dangerously off message sometimes.
    Obviously, that’s good. Show s how impartial the BBC is.

    But sometimes we get very close to cutting transmission when the start to criticise the EU.
    Can’t have the broadcasting subsidy in jeopardy. Pays a lot of our pensions the EU does.

    Reader says:

    Thhis is what passes for wit and repartee among the political classes. A dull bunch on the whole. Hence the attractions of UKIP et al.

    Lord Sugar says:

    Your reference to Michael Grade

    “Large parts of the BBC should be outsourced”

    This is a polite way to say privatised as we have said here for YEARS now

    I bet Grade has some hedgies up his sleeve to do it, as well!

    Who’s the dopey Tory on DP?Brillo skewers Fatty Thornbury with Labours record on dredging …she answers another question and HE gets he off the hook.

  37. 37
    UKIP or bust says:

    Wasn’t all magic money, they did manage to get some real money selling off old dredging equipment and stuff which was no longer needed as the Gurdian told as there will be no more water from the skies.

  38. 38
    Hah! says:

    Emily Thornberry, daring to return to the tv screen after her last lamentable performance, is allowed to ignore the questions about Baroness Young’s culpability.

  39. 39
    The public says:

    It was always a dumb idea Iain. We did say so. Might save a fortune but politically difficult.
    And you had enough on your plate with the baby factory/I need a new house to keep me pony in/its me ‘uman right to have a mansion/selling drugs is not work so it don’t need pay no tax , do it? brigade .

    And their bleeding heart supporters on the left.

    Emily Fivebellies says:

    Why did the Question Time audience all laugh at me when I waffled on for 5 minutes without even approaching an answer?

    When I do that in Salford I get a round of applause from the 5 live presenters

    Casual Observer 6 says:

    If you really want to see the fur fly, and understand why M’ensch is fixated on SW1 rather than the real world, just get her in a Twitter match with Ann Coulter.

    It would be like putting a baby in a blender…

    Best way to prevent overreaction and theatricals is not to murder children.

    One of them was already in chains, which suggests to me she’d been playing up already.

    You are right

    I would have dopey liberal chicklite wannabe immigrant Louise for breakfast

  57. 57
    Dial B 4 Brillo says:

    Bloody Hell the Daily Politics is a full on Lefty Wankfest about man made global warming and we must abandon the countryside.

    I’ve never seen the like of it before.

    DP JOE is showing her true Socialist colours while Brillo is away

    Davíd Cameron says:

    Lessons will be learnt.

  59. 59

    Any ‘ tory ‘[brought on for ‘balance’] on these programmes is almost certain to be an EU stooge and an ecolunatic

  60. 60
    Casual Observer 6 says:

    They were a lesbian couple who killed a 3 year old girl.

    Fuck them.

    BBC won’t be mentioning this as it doesn’t fit in with their child-unfriendly pro-gay agenda.

    Fuck the BBC also.

    Or perhaps it is because there hasn’t been anywhere near as much rain there?

    Can you give us your cast iron guarantee of that?

  63. 63
    3.4% growth is not ambitious enough says:

    You think that’s weird. Have a look at the bunch of has-beens who call themselves ‘The Elders’.

    Big Momma says:

    Talking of Bitch fights made me smile.
    Two days ago I heard something I at first did not believe.
    It was stated that Eddie Mair of the BBC Radio 4 PM Programme was banned from the Radio 4 Today Programme.
    When asked of this, Mair stated he had it in writing.
    Steady Eddie seems to be making the right type of reputation.

    peter don says:


    Many BBC staff have not made a secret of their disdain for his or her new northern base.

    But one presenter has taken the sniping to a replacement level…by making AN on-air joke inculpative the Corporation’s neighbours in Salford of being adroit.

    The bungle came when BBC five Live breakfast show host Rachel Burden was interviewing Olympic cycling hopeful Laura Trott, who won two gold medals at the Track cycling World Championships in Melbourne, concerning her success.

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.”
