Stewards’ Inquiry: Can You Hear ‘Crackerjack’ at PMQs?

A steward’s inquiry is required to determine if Guido’s tip that the word ‘Crackerjack’ would be said during today’s PMQs came good. As Nadine Dorries congratulated the Speaker for his new role as chancellor of Bedfordshire University, Guido reckons you can hear the word being uttered in the background. So will Paddy Power be paying out?

    So why was he on Radio4 Today and not in prison? says:

    Tom O’Carroll, who has been convicted of a number of child sex offences and was described as ‘one of the most infamous perverts on Earth’, sat on the NCCL’s gay rights sub-committee .

    Harriet says:

    What’s this obsession with crackerjack? Even one of my husband’s American friends, Denzil, calls the house and asks to speak to “That cracker, Jack”.

  16. 16
    Paul DeFlowers says:

    I just heard the work “Crack”

    theroofer says:

    There goes my £5. I fear that Paddypower will decline to pay out as it wasn’t clearly audible. Also their website offered different odds for different number of mentions so how many are “legal” mentions? I am off to their website to read the small print.

    Ned Ludd says:

    And did I hear someone shout ‘R Slicker!’ as Nadine in da jungle Dorries brownnosed the Speaker?

    I think Abbott shouted “pie” but she was probably just ordering lunch.

  25. 25

    Definitely. Twice. At around 15/16 seconds.

    Ned Ludd says:

    Just the one pie? Must have been a Desperate Dan cow pie. Well, would have to be for that cow.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
