Chris Bryant’s Horse Anus Treatment

These days our crooked MPs are either promoted to the Cabinet or serve half of their paltry sentences. Back in the day the punishments were a little more fitting for the crimes. According to Chris Bryant’s new book Parliament: The Biography, Giles Mompesson the MP for Great Bedwyn ‘was fined, expelled from parliament and told to parade up the Strand “with his face in a horse’s anus” for extortionately abusing his royal monopoly for the licensing of inns and manufacture of gold thread in 1621.’

Guido would settle on just bringing back the stocks.

      Funny as it is, the punishment makes no sense at all. No (live) horse in the world is going to walk anywhere with a person’s head wedged under their tail. They’d be kicked to death.

      Unless they simply cut the arse off a dead horse and tied it to his head with a couple of eye-holes cut out I simply don’t see how this would work.

      Totally misread that. Thought it said Bryant had a disease called Horse’s Anus for which he was having treatment ??

    Sue Myarseoff says:

    Leon Brittan would be up for that if you replaced the horse with a 9 year old boy.

    There are a fair few mps already up a few anuses. It seems they think it’s a perk of the job.

    A Droyd says:

    Isn’t the horse’s anus somewhat large for Chris Bryant?

    They had better punishments then *cries*

    Thrice nay?

    M­a­­­­q­bo­­ul says:

    Mind you, in those days I bet the Strand smelled no better than a horse’s arse, so what kind of punishment was that?

    Bryant’s likely been horsed up the anus a few times. Filthy git.

    You wouldn’t want to be in the stocks with Nigel Evans or the entire Libdem party around.

    Bryant is a horses Ass.

    No RSPCA to complain in those days!

    Most of our MPs including underpants man already have their heads wedged firmly up their arses.

    A similar sentence should be handed down to drink drivers.

    Podiceps says:

    A common medieval punishment for fraud was to be dragged through the streets tied to a door decorated with whatever you had defrauded people with — a baker who sold short weight would have loaves tied to his door. It was a sort of mobile stocks that allowed everyone to have a good throw of whatever came to hand. For MPs today, a simple pig trough dragged behind a lorry would be fine. Followed by a camera car, of course, with a live video link to the internet.

    Hard to spot he difference between a horses’s arse and a politician really.

    John Bellingham says:

    Chris Bryant writing a book about misbehaving MPs seems somehow like Frankie Boyle writing about other comedians foul language.

    Andrew says:

    Of course if we bring back the stocks we will have to sell the concession for selling rotten fruit and brickbats and dead cats, and it will have to be put up for tender in the OJ – we will probably get more pungent felines from the Romanians who bid highest!

    Surely not as bad as MPs eating kangaroo anus on I’m a Celebrity?

    Having to wear a dead horses anus and rectum as a hat would be the perfect punishment for our errant and corrupt MP’s. It would be a zero waste punishment as the rest of the horse could go to Tesco for use in burgers.

      Mr Helpful says:

      Or we could always use a donkey’s equivalent parts and thus, be able to call someone literally an “asshat.”


  25. 37

    I can think of quite a few politicos in both local and national politics who wearing the Asshat would be highly appropriate. There’s not enough humiliation in punishments these days, especially in those given to politicos.
