Quote of the Day

Government PPS Alec Shelbrooke responds to the Speaker with his characteristic diplomacy:

“Bercow needs to look in the mirror. Betty never had the need to resort to whining. His biased approach is why he’s lost control of PMQ’s.”

    So impressed with the professionalism of these people – slating each other openly. So much for the glory of politicians.

    Quite. Cameron, Clegg and Milliband should just turn around and tell Bercow to sort it out. He’s in charge.

    If he’s lost control, he should go.

    So that would leave Bercow having to do the dirty work of suspending MPs to get control, and the result would be that he’s likely to be voted out.

    Not particularly good of the Tories. One speaker on sex charges and the other kicked out.

    Cameron does seem to give Milliband a bloody nose (most of the time) so of course Bercow wants ‘them’ to calm to down… suits the cuckoo..

      yeah pk agreed . but i m afraid the way libdems have handled floods etc will live long in the memory and currently we are looking at Milliband as the next PM dishonourably supported by tbe libertine Clegg ( whose allegiance shifting political drawers go up and down faster than a lady if the night on a VERY busy shift )

    Admire a man who calls a Speaker a Squawker. I call it a Liberty!

    It can’t do his “negative equity” character much good when he goes to work and knows that everyone considers him to be a slimy little oik. Broon the Loon’s little helper, (perhaps they could nickname him “lithium”). Then he goes “home” after a day being expectorated upon and even the dog pisses up his leg. Sad dwarf.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
