WATCH: “Are You Going to Resign, Maria Miller?”

Great stuff from Sky’s Sophy Ridge, who has spent the day standing outside Number 10 shouting at Cabinet ministers. Miller’s face…

    Silly low grade journalism.

    No wonder people turn to blogs for sharper comment.

      Sophe Ridge says:

      Still turns the screw.

      What have you done to ditch the bitch?

        ordinary member of the public says:

        She’s asking the question the British public want answered.
        Which is what journalists should do.

          MP's and celebrities who back Leveson says:

          That’s why we’re going to shackle journalists.


          • Bewildebeest says:

            But whats the point in standing there squawking – does the silly girl seriously expect an answer ? Is she adding value to anything ?
            All she achieves is to make herself look common and stupid.


          • broderick crawford says:

            What are Mzzz Miller s commitments for today ?

            Well after a VERY BRIEF appearance at the Cabinet meeting this morning and after an EVEN SPEEDIER APPARITION boarding my Ministerial car to leave same I will be spending the remainder of the day rehearsing for and partaking in a carefully shot pre recorded interview with Mr Jeremy Paxman . Wherein I will be verbally comforted , socially mollycoddled, and generally treated with the obsequious understanding which I deserve such that the best posiible light can be spun on my current unjustified situation aided and abetted by Mr Paxman who will be adopting his avuncular friendly old sheepdog interview mode while nuzzling and nurturing my self esteem and sense of total mistreatment at the hands of the pleb electorate.

            Hope your e all ( still) making money ……. Maria

    Looking at that lot, I don’t think Maria should be the only one resigning.

    Maria Miller Conservative MP for Basingstoke. Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport and M says:

    Do I regret it? Yes.

    Would I do it again? Probably.

    Where's my right of recall? says:

    If you are not with the people of this country in their desire for honest government, then you are against us.

      Dave Cameron says:

      Ah there it is. I was looking for my right of recall speech. Found it down the back of the sofa, the one Tony (PBUH) used to use.

    The Public says:

    A procession of dead men walking.


  8. 10
    Maria Miller says:

    No I will not resign.
    I will carry on using my mediocre talents doing what I consider the important work at the Ministry of fun.
    Even if that means destroying whatever credibility my party has left.


  9. 13
    Maria Miller says:

    Why should I resign, I went to a normal school.


  10. 15
    The Public says:

    So. The cabinet has been turned into a conspiracy to prevent the course of justice.

    David Laws looked very sheepish (more so than the others)

      Shame she didn’t direct the question to Laws….

      Glyn H says:

      Laws of course has the redeeming quality, unusual in a Liberal, that he actually has brains and is competent. His book on forming the coalition is a worthwhile read. Mrs Miller is seemingly rude, indecisive and well out of her depth. Cameroon only appointed her out of desperation because she went to a council school and is female; bad move then and terrible judgement not to ask for her immediate resignation long since.

      Well he should leave the buggers alone!

    Maria Miller says:

    Can I claim for stress?

    Behold my astonishing arrogance.

      The Judge (Mr Justice ForeSkin) says:

      Strike out the word ‘arrogance’

      Replace with ‘fragrance’

    Ah Sophy – worth every second of watching

    Righto, Maria Miller, let’s talk about what’s unfair:



  15. 20

    She’s got some lungs on her for a little lass.

    Copper on the Gates says:

    I’m no opening the gates for ‘er.
    She should leave via the waste pipe!

    a non says:

    ” Great stuff from Sky’s Soapy Ridge”

    Never let intelligence be confused with any squawking, journalistic parrot.


  18. 26
    Drip, drip of Downfall says:

    Miller looked a bit smug.

    Suggests she will stay for now, thanks to Cameron’s support.

    Both will be looking for new jobs come 2015, though.

    If only someone had asked Brown "Are you going to stop bullying your staff?" says:

    Sophy’s not as good as Gobby, who used to be the BBC’s resident “are you going to resign” geezer.

    Ashcroft says:

    I just called Crime-stoppers about Maria Miller+Cameron http://fb.me/3dlP4EJUg

    Anyone seen my credibility?
    I forgot where I was when I last had it.

    Take your appeal and shove it up your jacksie says:

    He was a fucking gangster. Good riddance.

    The verdict of an inquest into Mark Duggan’s death – which found he was lawfully killed when he was shot dead by police – can be challenged, it has been ruled. Mr Duggan, 29, was shot in Tottenham, north London, in August 2011. Lawyers for his mother Pamela Duggan claim the Coroner’s directions to the jury in were “arguably inadequate”. Mr Justice Mitting said he was granting “limited permission” to apply for judicial review.

      Give it 5 years and Pamela will be sitting in the House of Lords next to her good friend Lardy Doreen.

        Tony Baloney says:

        Don’t forget Lord Michael Adebolajo! It’ll cost the taxpayer a chuffin’ fortune and make my Lawyer buddies a fortune, but in the end we’ll arrive at true justice!

    SKY 'News' an occasional column for gratuitous plugs for SKY masquerading as news says:

    You’ll be in Private Eye for this.

    I’d quite like to see the pics Maria Miller has of Cameron.

      Cameron and Miller, two erstwhile spin doctors together … diagnosing a political stillbirth in May 2015

    They fear the Hare says:

    You couldn’t call it journalism, by a long stretch of the imagination, but probably the closest she’s come to actually earning her salary for a while.

    What’s even funnier, and thankfully even more damaging than a simple YES, or NO is the arrogant silence from our elected “leaders”

    Tracey Reckless says:

    A lot of my colleagues in government appear to be suffering from hearing problems, maybe they are thinking it could be me next.


  33. 60
    All Troughed Out says:

    Dave’s dad could have saved his money on that Eton nonsense, it certainly has not worked for brainless Dave.

    Do these arrogant idiots ignoring the reporters questions simply not realise when we have had enough.

    Miller should have been given 24 hours to resign, if her arrogance and ego did not allow this, then brainless Dave should have made up for what is lacking up top by growing some balls and getting rid of her within the following 24 hours.


  34. 63
    HenryV says:

    Don’t care. Just another one at the trough.

    Why get angry when we have seen it all a hundreds of times before?

    Is news really that slow? What don’t they want to you notice?

    Really don’t care.

    Maimed Codger says:

    Why is it the Paid For BBC, has such Ugly Women Presenters… they must pick them because they are cheap… there are exceptions but very few… Mostly Old Fat Ugly Women, Now Ms Ridge is not a BBC reporter & rather comely..

    Why the hell is David Laws back in a position of power?

    Wonder what sort of flak her kids are getting at school or at work ?

    actions have unforeseen consequences Mrs M.

    …. mind you probably not as much as Charlie Brooks’ clan after admitting drinking a bottle if Fairy liquid to cure a hangover….. next time try a kilo of sodium chlorate mixed in a gallon of hot water Charlie …. as a top weedkiller that should put you back on an even keel .
