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?

    Yes, several times. When she just finished the praise to Squeaky for becoming Chancellor of Bedford uni was the first one and again afterwards in the melee.

    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 .

    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”.

    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.

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
