    She is just exercising her right to be a prat. Anyone who says anything else is northern phobic and deserves to be sent to prison.

    to learn good Northern Accented English, they will be watching reruns of “Auf Wierdersehen Pet!” and “All Creatures Great & Small”. There definitely will be ” ‘T Trouble at Mill” ‘coz these “Progressive” Liberal labour Luvvies will have to wear flat caps like Andy Capp, clogs, drink flat warm beer, eat Tripe ‘n Onions for Tea and keep a whippet in the kitchen….!!

Sarah Vine writes of Esther McVey…

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”



Flight Watch says:

Russia Today is a cauldron of bullsh*t. The only people that take it seriously are deluded conspiracy theorists. Other RT journos have resigned citing the same reasons.

It’s about as believable as Press TV, KCNA of North Korea or the Daily Mirror.
