Free the Clegg One

Young Harry Payne has been suspended from school and his mum is very, very cross this morning following yesterday’s top banter in which he gave the Clegg the finger. Guido thinks Harry’s explanation that it was aimed at a fellow student and not the Deputy Prime Minister is entirely plausible and completely believable. We’re very sorry for getting you in trouble, Harry.

As a classmate says:

Free the Clegg One!

    The Last Quango in Paris says:

    Hang on a sec – Clegg’s giving them all the fingers ! can we suspend him.

    The FibDems can’t take a joke :-)

    The Lobbyist says:

    Making children listen to politicians in their own schools has to be close to child abuse?

    Scottish Chav says:

    doesnt he know politicians are our betters and we should bow down and worship their very f@rts?

  5. 5
    Moley says:

    I thought he was picking his nose.

  6. 6
    Child Abuse Watch says:

    More importantly, why is that politician being allowed to use a captive audience of children as a backdrop to his re-election campaign?

  7. 7
    Scottish Chav says:

    looks to me like he’s giving the universal hand gesture for large breasts … another dodgy child lover?

  8. 8
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    Clegg and a great many others will be suspended from cranes in the not to distant future, if you know what i mean.

    Astroturfers Anonymous says:

    The poor kid has no legal right to refuse to listen to this guff. It is grossly unfair.

    jgm2 says:

    Another right-on multi-culti photo-op.

    Look how they’ve got all the ethnic minorities crammed into the front row.

    Those other kids are bored or can barely disguise their risibility of Cleggers. They shouldn’t pick on the one kid that was honest with his opinions.

    btw did cleggers get booed?

  13. 13
    Uncle Alf says:

    In my day, it was only God-fearing Tories who could use captive audiences for their campaigns

    The rest didn’t count

    But nowadays, since noone is God fearing apart from the Moozies, I am not shure who has the right…

    I think sending him a t-shirt and PS4 is the least you could do.

    Long John Silver's parrot says:

    He is just picking his nose FFS.

    All boys do that.

    Who is Harry’s mother angry with, Harry, the school or Cleggy?

    I see a few white aborigines in the front row…

  20. 20
    Where are your teaching papers Clegg? says:

    Of course Clegg is braking his own rules when he says only state qualified drones should be allowed into school and lecture Children.

  21. 21
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    I bet the teachers told the students that they are going to be getting a visit from a UK celebrity. They were probably all thinking oh i wonder who it’s going to be, Beckham,A pop star,A famous actor.

    Then Cleggover turns up and the faces on the students tells its own story :-)

    Gesture Politics says:

    Must be getting old. Never realised that was an insulting gesture anyway. I thought he was hooking bogies and munching them.

  23. 23
    The Last Quango in Paris says:

    In all seriousness is this really what happened?

    Teenagers told NC coming to School, shunted into assembly to listen to the man who stuffed them over tuition fees, none of them looked interested, happy – one of them puts his finger to his face and SOMEOME WAS OFFENDED and now this boy is being denied his education?

    jgm2 says:

    ‘only Labour can be the party that fights for every person, from every walk of life, from every part of the UK’

    Bullingdon toffs. Millionaire’s Row. Fat-cat bankers. 99%.

    Yeah. Very conciliatory Very ‘One Nation’.

    Rules are rules, they shouldn’t have brakes fitted to them.

    That’s the ethnic minority I’m talking about.

  27. 27
    Tony Blair is a war criminal says:

    He should get a medal for giving Clegg the finger.

  28. 28
    Anonymous says:

    If he really has been suspended, that says a lot against the school. His form teacher, or the head or deputy head, should have just given him a good talking to and left it at that. Suspension is way over the top. It would shows that teachers no longer had the backbone, or the moral standing in the eyes of students, to give a telling off and move on.

  29. 29
    The Last Quango in Paris says:

    or covering a zit when he has just realised that due to no fault of his own he was going to be photographed with clegg whether he liked it or not – a fawning, smiling photo would have guaranteed mick taking for life.

    can someone confirm the correct poise for being bored by an mp?

  30. 30
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    Labour don’t recognise England,Scotland & Wales as nations in their own right. Labour will no doubt demand that the 6 nations rugby trophy be renamed the 4 nations trophy (France,Ireland,Italy & One Nation something or other).

  31. 31
    jgm2 says:

    It might be the final straw. After not suspending him for persistent disruption of lessons, swearing at the teacher etc etc maybe this was the excuse they needed.

  32. 32
    Hugh Janus says:

    ‘Course we can suspend Cleggy – preferably by the scrotum.

  33. 33
    ss says:

    that it was aimed at a fellow student and not the Deputy Prime Minister is entirely plausible and completely believable.

    Yea Yea, but Clegg deserves it more. Well done Harry.

  34. 34
    Why can only adults think Clegg is an arsehole? says:

    Why punish this child for showing insufficient respect to a lying bastard?

  35. 35
    Karl says:

    Isn’t a country with only one political party that counts, a totalitarian state?

    If so the Marxist Ed is correct in what he says.

  36. 36
    Mustapha Djinn says:

    This was equivalent to a party political broadcast. Was UKIP given a right to reply ?

  37. 37
    Hugh Janus says:

    The BBC seem to ship them in specially for every school story.

  38. 38
    Cazual Observer 9 says:

    This is a politically motivated suspension.

    What next ? Take him into care ?

  39. 39
    RomaBob.... working hard for you! says:

    Politics no doubt, just as some want to deny a job for Global Warming deniers :)

  40. 40
    The Last Quango in Paris says:


    The boy to Harry’s right is flicking Clegg the ‘v’s’ !!!! Suspend the lot of them.

  41. 41
    whippet says:

    Suspended for what? Seems excessive even if he was giving Clegg the finger. Politically motivated persecution by a teacher? I have personally witnessed it in every school I attended.

  42. 42
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    It could have been worse, they might have had to listen to boring snoring Rachel Reeves :-)

  43. 43
    Rules are for the masses and not Politicians says:

    There are rules about photographing Children in school and then publishing them without the parents’/guardian’s permission.

    I would wager that Clegg has no such permission.

  44. 44
    Mrs Dromey says:

    Child abuse? What’s that then? Whatever it is, count me in.

  45. 45
    Sick of the Spin says:

    Well why don’t you keep it fucking zipped until tomorrow then you plastic fucking politician

  46. 46
    Sick of the Spin says:

    Has it got one?

  47. 47
    Joyce Thacker says:

    Just let me at the little bastard. I bet he’s harbouring UKIP thoughts.

  48. 48
    but more importantly says:

    Has Clegg been CRB checked?

  49. 49
    Coming down when Labour came in. Going up when Labour went out. says:

    Me too

  51. 51
    Hugh Janus says:

    So many teachers are lefties, so out to impress their ‘leader’ . . .

  52. 52
    Paniagua V5.1 says:

    I do hope the school ran a comprehensive CRB check before letting him (or indeed any LibDem) into the school.

  53. 53
    Minimum Wage For All says:

    Did these children get properly paid to have to listen him while he promoted himself to the nation?

  54. 54
    Hugh Janus says:

    Good point.

  55. 55
    BBC says:

    Sounds good. Does he support Labour? Can we have him on QT?

  56. 56
    Sir Olly C says:

    The kid is ginger, he should be suspended for that alone! But kudos to him, I’d have done the same.

  57. 57
    Owen Jones, Corrupting Britain says:

    Surely he was hoping for minimal retweets ?

  58. 58

    No doubt the piece of treacherous socialist scum took the opportunity to peddle Euro propaganda at them !

  59. 59
    BBC Raging Horn says:

    We are thinking of bringing Jim’ll fix it back with a new pervert we have just signed up. Is he game to come on the show ?

  60. 60
    cornwall storms says:

    Irresponsible school. I suppose suspending pupils rather than just giving him a good telling off thins out the numbers – less pupils to teach and all that, Lazy lot!

  61. 61
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    Notice the rise coincides with the introduction of the minimum wage. Germany (no minimum wage) has consistently lower unemployment than both the UK and USA.

    This is proof that the minimum wage is a jobs destroyer, particularly for the young.

  62. 62
    Horn for the teacher says:

    I like the minxy looking teacher in the background

  63. 63
    BBC dramas set in the 70s are politically bised Shite says:

    I do wish he’d piss off to Venezuela but I do admire the work he is doing here in GB putting the cause of the leftists back 40 years.

  64. 64

    Oi Milliboy, you better clear this with me first.

    Mental Torture can damage for life says:

    They can’t cane anymore, which in most cases was administered deliberately half heartedly.

    life has taught me that the short shock of a couple of minutes of physical pain is soon over. Unlike the lasting damage caused by mental punishment such as what the school are doing to this lad

  68. 68
    Lard Rennard says:

    That’s my defence, cheers

  69. 69
    One Nation broken into many bits says:

    We had one nation until you tossers destroyed it with mass immigration between 1997 and 2010, now we have a nation which is so split and on a hair trigger that even plod are spending money on water cannon, just in case, you and Liebour and the other politicians are our problem , so fck off and fight somewhere else and by the way you was in power when Bliar brought out those get out of jail cards that even the judiciary can’t throw anybody in jail for, why aren’t you and Bliar and his gang are not sitting in jail waiting trial for what you have done to people of this country, one day just one day.

  70. 70
    Cazual Observer 9 says:

    The school are engaged in a politically motivated suspension which could have implications for this guys future employment.

    If he had half a brain, he should issue a statement online that he was giving the finger to Clegg and that his earlier statements had been coerced under pressure from school authorities.

    Then, sue the school.

  71. 71
    Joe Public says:

    And future Prime Ministers too:-

  72. 72
    Round the Bend says:

    It also coincides with the UK being swamped with migrants!

  73. 73
    Ex-Labour says:

    Suspended from school for surrepticiously telling doink Clogg he’s a twat?

    FFS. Clogg’s not fucking deserving of any respect, he’s just a very silly boy who tells whoppers.

  74. 74

    is there a minimum age for receiving knighthoods?

  75. 75
    Axe The Telly Tax & Religion & Kill All Eco-loons says:

    Shouldn’t vile dinosaurs like you be stepping down in favour of a woman selected from an all-woman shortlist?

    Or is it do as i say and not as i do from Labour’s paymasters?

    Mr Grump or Mr Pie-chart?

    Obviously a genius, worthy of a free place at Eton.

    Just listening to Farage yapping, he’s a breath of fresh air, normally I would change channels or turn the tv off when a politician speaks

  81. 81

    I presume Clogg has all the forms required ,that allows him to mix with children in school, the lad has the right idea, a one finger salute, to a nonentity.

    Funambulist says:

    I remember reading that Doreen Lawrence and her (more likable) husband left the UK with great fanfare to return to the West Indies with Doreen saying she could no longer bear to live in such a racist country. Six months later, they snuck back into the UK with no publicity, having found fellow West Indians less than welcoming. Can anyone confirm this story?

    Well at least in the private sector he’d get a proper education from enthusiastic and committed teachers which is more than he will get at this half-hearted state school he is currently attending.

    Ofsted Inspector says:

    Be quiet Clegg! We don’t allow ‘Teachertalk’ so ‘Cleggtalk’ is unacceptable. Try mixed ability group work for an outstanding rating.

  89. 89
    Ofsted Inspector/Educational Consultant says:

    As one of Sir Wilshaw’s trusted progressive pedagogy police, I assure you that any teacher who shows enthusiasm and commitment for the outmoded,authoritarian didactic teaching of knowledge will be judged inadequate, put on capability procedures and dismissed.

    Rough Old Teacher says:

    Best bit of student feedback I’ve seen in ages.

  91. 91
    Graham says:

    Head teacher should be sacked. Must be fucking thick to expect any reasonably intelligent pupil to listen to a twat like Clegg.

  92. 92
    Graham says:

    Probably forced to listen to thicko Clegg. Surely illegal and also cruelty to children ? But poltical indoctrination is not allowed so the Head Teacher must be a dummy or an arsehole member of the NUT.

  93. 93
    thostids says:

    The system is so rapid, the bugger has been stripped of his parentage, Nationality and been adopted by Ms and Ms Harpic. That will teach the little sod to think he could get away with anything but abject acceptance.

  94. 94
    Morgan's Organ says:

    Suspend the Head for allowing this staged exploitative farce in his school in the first place and give Hero Harry an open to bus parade through Westminster.

  95. 95

    Yes a staged show, as is usual these days.

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.”
