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?

  5. 7
    Cazual Observer 7 says:

    At about: 0:09, 0:15, 0:18

  6. 8
    Random Backbench Moron says:

    “Crackerjack!” *innocent face*

  7. 9
    Sally B says:

    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.

    Harriet says:

    I like Jack’s crack.

  9. 14
    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”.

  11. 16
    Paul DeFlowers says:

    I just heard the work “Crack”

  12. 17
    Jack Dromey says:

    Any big black boys want to jack my crack?

  13. 18
    Comrade Joyce says:

    I heard nothing.

  14. 20
    Professor Plum says:

    Thought I heard “So weak!”

  15. 21
    Speaker of truth says:

    Big news this.

    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.

  17. 23
    Ned Ludd says:

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

  18. 24
    Big Ears says:

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

      Ned Ludd says:

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

  19. 26
    *yawn* says:

    I heard it but I reckon they didn’t. No news from PP yet. Doesn’t look good!

    Jack the Ripper says:

    In the event there’s no payout, punters will be given a cabbage.

    Border Terrier says:

    Sit down & be quiet.

  22. 30
    Steve P says:

    Might it require to appear in Hansard to count?

  23. 31
    GCHQ says:

    We heard it.

    Whiffler says:

    Replayed 4 times – mucho volume. Couldn’t hear it.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
