Parliamentary Resources Unit Boss Iain Corby Resigns

Guido can confirm well known Commons terrace aficionado and the director of the Parliamentary Resources Unit Iain Corby has resigned. Tory MPs have been told:

“I am sorry to have to inform you that, after six successful years, Iain Corby, the PRU’s Director, has decided to move on from the Unit and return to the commercial world.  In his time here Iain has demonstrated excellent leadership, not least around the time of the last election and, since then, in expanding the number of services offered to our subscribers. We wish him well for the future.”

    In charge of “providing services to subscribers”.

    I think we can see where this one is leading.

    It’s the Tory research unit – Policy Research Unit which provides pooled research services to subscription paying Tory MPs and their staff.

    It’s not developing, this email went around to staffers on Monday.

    He looks like he should work at MFI.

    If I ever need one of those extruded aluminium tracks for a drawer I would be happy to ask his advice. Otherwise, I don’t care if he takes another breath or not.

    Establishment bullshit, Guido.

    Completely ofrf topic and way past my bedtime but Boris Johnsons dopey upper class twit of a sister has just proposed banning sugar for the thick plebs who dont know how to use it whilst declaring that poor people cant afford to eat properly because a swede costs £3 on Deptford High Street.
    £3 for a swede?
    The woman is nuts.

    Fred the pensioner says:

    The reason he has gone is because he is no longer needed. He headed the Parliamentary Resources Unit – and as we were informed long ago, there is no money left, so obviously he has run out of ‘resources’ to manage. His is a job which needs no replacement.

    Parliamentary Resources Unit. It’s a researcher farm for MPs. Title deliberately designed to suggest that its work is not party political (and it has even managed to get office space on the Parliamentary estate on that basis) but everyone knows that PRU staff work exclusively for Conservative MPs.

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.”
