    What is all this?

  2. 2
    Duck n' Weave says:

    Given his responsiveness will the PM be answering last week’s questions?

  3. 3
    still walking into darkness says:

    I’ll take a bet with anyone Miliband doesn’t mention Miller

  4. 4
    Confused says:

    If they already know who is going to ask the questions, why do they still ask to ask a question?

    Think you’re right.

  6. 6
    EU Funded Pro-EU Troll says:

    Vote UKIP

  7. 7
    Lord Denning says:

  8. 8
    Dave the Dunce says:

    What an utter c’unt answer: The EU migration he cannot do anything about.

    He has not answered yes / no – utter c’unt.

  9. 9
    javid to depose david says:

    Troughing not on the agenda?

  10. 10
    Podiceps says:

    It would make no difference to the world outside Westminster if he spent the entire occasion singing rugby songs and eating fried eggs.

  11. 11
    Dave the Dunce says:

    What the fuck has the G7 got to do with dementia ? Utter c’unt.

    Union stooge.

  13. 13
    Dave the Dunce says:

    The committee did not clear her, and she tried to stay in her job, and Dave attempted to defend her. Utter c’unt answer.

    For once Miliband is correct

  15. 15
    Mitch says:


  16. 16

  17. 17
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    Cameron should mention the hanging baskets of Beckett and the dry rot of Moran.

  18. 18
    Dave the Dunce says:

    So Dave is hiding behind children on the Mar!a M!ller issue now ? Utter c’unt.

  19. 19
    Justin Case says:

    Well done.

  20. 20
    UYTY says:

    Dave on the ropes. Miliband is winning this one easily

  21. 21
    Deprived viewer says:

    CVNTS at SKY International are not showing PMQs today – still broadcasting that Seth Efrican trial.


  22. 22
    Plonker Alert says:

    Miliband managing to lose this, what a plonker!

  23. 23
    Dave the Dunce says:

    Those non-MP’s do not have voting rights.

  24. 24
    Cameron is a Lying TWAT says:


    FFS it is MPs who have the final say and rduced Miller’s fine to peanuts.

  25. 25
    Apthorpe says:

    Least we could have a bet on how many the porker could get down him!

  26. 26
    Mitch says:

    The non-M.P.’s on the cttee are hardly “members of the public”!!

    There are only 3, and they’re all CEO’s of various quango’s and other gravy train companies, of course.

  27. 27
    Bad Day for Dave says:

    Miliband has correctly judged the public mood.

    Cameron looking devious and ducking the issue

  28. 28
    Apthorpe says:

    It’s always on the menu just not for the likes of us.

  29. 29
    Deprived viewer says:

    Ah! They seem to have had a change of mind. I withdraw my comment.

  30. 30
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    But I also groaned when Farron stood up.

  31. 31
    Observer says:

    Cameron looks angry. Not a good place to be.

  32. 32
    lol says:

    Cameron DOESN’T GET IT – AGAIN

  33. 33
    Mitch says:

    Miliband is being opportunistic, obviously, but he won that one hands down.

  34. 34
    Fishy says:

    Blinky (FLIPPER) Balls is looking indignant and as though butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth.

    Of course he doesn’t have questions to answer (or CGT to pay back)

  35. 35
    Confused says:

    Thanks M’Lord

  36. 36
    Fishy says:

    He used the Eagle death stare

  37. 37
    Fishy says:

    Why did they do that?

  38. 38
    Ed Miliband says:

    Epic Fail

  39. 39
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    Eh? It was Bercow who mentioned children.

  40. 40
    And pigs will fly says:

    Miliband would be more credible if he hadn’t that despicable Harman pervert sitting alongside him.

  41. 41
    Ed Millibandwagon says:

    Oh I don’t know what I’m thaying yet

  42. 42
    Ed Miliband says:

    Any idea where I can get more MDMA?

  43. 43
    So what? says:

    Irrelevant to what Dave just said. He was trying to say that MPs do not pass sentence on MPs and that is not true.

  44. 44
    Peter Hain says:

    An assured performance by Ed Miliband

  45. 45
    Dave the Dunce says:

    Dave is essentially saying: Trust Maria. What a c’unt.

  46. 46
    Round the Bend says:

    They have the right to issue a separate written note if they disagree with the overall decision. The committee’s verdict is based on consensus.

  47. 47
    Fishy says:

    Strong and assured

  48. 48
    Fishy says:

    Do go and read the report

  49. 49
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    What a surprise, orchestrated questions from Labour on Miller.

  50. 50
    An Expenses Sinner sees the light says:

  51. 51
    1922 Committee says:

    Cameron has GOT to go.
    This PMQs is bloody shocking.
    He’s a beaten man….just spouting random bollox.
    Not even the widow lickers will vote for that.

  52. 52
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    A morally reprehensible lawyer? What next, a green cucumber?

  53. 53
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    Liz Truss on the front bench gives me the horn.

  54. 54
    You're on says:

    £10k OK?

  55. 55
    Dave the Dunce says:

    Read it – don’t trust it – if she was innocent she would not have resigned.

  56. 56
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    Why are so many female Labour MPs obese?

  57. 57
    Max says:

    Cameron is so out of touch with the public mood, all the fiddlers should have been deselected and prosecuted. Oh and why do mp’s on the front bench pull silly faces

  58. 58
    Earache says:

    Prepare for Naomi Long to shout and screech her question…

  59. 59
    You forgot says:


  60. 60

    mckan, steven lorence and that alleged plane crash next then?

  61. 61
    Tango View says:

  62. 62
    Tonic says:

    Hilarious, Cameron’s in a hole and along comes Ed Miliband with naked opportunism to give the PM a lift out. Only Ed Miliband could miss this open goal!

  63. 63
    Earache says:

    Sacked by Miliband. Put that on your cv, fatty.

  64. 64
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    I’m so fucking bored of Northern Ireland’s problems.

  65. 65
    IDS says:

    Universal Credit is still a monumental fuck-up.
    I think it was a mistake setting it up on Windows XP.
    Never mind that only cost £40Million.
    Have we hit our sanctions target today?

  66. 66
    Lord Denning says:

    Is that her who had to live in the shed for protection?

  67. 67
    Honest John says:

  68. 68
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    Is Diane Abbott wearing red so that ketchup splashes can just blend in?

  69. 69
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    Anyone just see the middle finger Balls gave Cameron? He disguised it as a nose rub. Someone get a photo grab of it!

  70. 70
    Groundhog Cameron says:

    Is it 12.30 yet?

  71. 71
    Stay Focussed says:

    and only one mp out of the ten or eleven appointed, ever turn up.

    so one mp decides.

    guessing the rest use their time to sort out their expenses.

  72. 72
    Round the Bend says:

    I cannot but notice how many female Labour MP are FAT. I am not talking about a few pounds but huge lardies.

  73. 73
    Rick Nob says:

  74. 74
    Time for a trial for Hain says:

    Peter, tell us why you shower of shit turned a blind eye to IRA gunrunning from Florida, and why two RUC men in Lurgan lie dead in their grave today, murdered with one of the imported guns.

  75. 75
    Stay Focussed says:

    where is HMRC in all this.

    as a law abiding tax payer HMRC are all over me on a regular basis.

    e.g. got a letter today saying i was up for a 100 pound fine if i did not owe anything but did not send them a letter to say i did not owe them anything . . .

  76. 76
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    Pathetic. Labour MPs lined up to ask the same question about Miller.

  77. 77
    Camoron -Do I Give a Shit? says:

    I am the Hunt of all Hunts so suck on that liver lips.

  78. 78
    Lord Denning says:

    Not really, Nick, because Miller went in the end. The next person to be criticised on exe’s will find it even harder to stay in place.

  79. 79
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    Has Mike Weir been castrated?

  80. 80
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    David Lammy was an ineffectual minister and is an equally ineffectual useless MP.

  81. 81
    Fishy says:

    Hain pathetic on declaring payments to his election fund

  82. 82
    Fishy says:

    John Mann is a thoroughly nasty piece of work

  84. 84
    Dangerous Brian says:

    By rearranging the letters Diane Abbott you can spell, serial trougher and BBC apparatchick

  85. 85
    Justin Case says:

    “Widow lickers” – yum . . .

  86. 86
    Appeasement says:

    Still, questions need asked why there has been no justice for the families of the murdered soldiers. Blind eye turned again to IRA terrorism?

  87. 87
    Dave the Dunce says:

    Dave says : Vote UKIP.

    What an utter c’unt.

  88. 88
    Round the Bend says:

    Standing up trying to get attention, but bercow is having none of it. he’s had his 5secs of fame and the other MPs would wish he was not there.

  89. 89
    Miliband is a bitch says:

    I’d like to bump uglies with Liz Truss.

  90. 90
    Fishy says:

    And over to Westminster where Labour are on the attack….Miliband has the ball… it’s a one-on-one….the goal is at his mercy…Miliband shoots…Miliband misses.

  91. 91
    Mornington Crescent says:

    Yep – fuck what the voters think, just make sure you keep MPs happy.

  92. 92
    Dangerous Brian says:

    Of course Mr Hain and his slimy crew are squeaky clean when it comes to missappropriating funds, exes etc.

    For supposedly clever people they do seem to suffer from serious memory problems.

  93. 93
    Anonymous says:

    Because he’s as thick as your hide.

  94. 94
    M­a­­­­q­bo­­ul says:

    Wonder what her position would be if Miller were an afro-caribbean mother (aka black)?

  95. 95
    ancientpopeye says:

    Its a total waste of time, PMQ’s should be abolished.
    Millibore wasted 6 questions on history. Someone else obviously writes his questions and he’s so dull that he cannot adapt and change midstream.
    She resigned dopey, try using your questions to ask about the economy, oops, sorry you’ve already blown that.
    The IMF in the form of the socialist LeGrande ate crow and reassessed the UK.

  96. 96

    And his own wisteria?

  97. 97
    The artful Dowager says:

    He needs someone to look up to.

  98. 98
    The artful Dowager says:

    Or a mozzie to boot ? (Best thing to do with them really.)

  99. 99
    Ed (Too Fat must Fast for Flat Waistline) Balls says:

    Balls-Cooper Triple flippers need to go through this now!!

    Clear as day!

    olden1936 says:

    At last She’s resigned, but dream on folks! The person intelligent, wise, honest,and courageous enough to be our leader would have to be dragged kicking and screaming to the throne. No would-be MP has ever bothered to knock on my door during hustings. Politics is not just a career it is also access to the political and post-political-career commercial gravy train that has nothing to do with what we voters want or voted for. I agree with Russell about the meaninglessness of voting, and that what should be on any ballot paper is an extra option of “None of the above” making that vote a real vote of protest. Meanwhile I wonder what trivia the Media will be focusing our world-weary minds on next

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
