Quote of the Day

Lord Hanningfield explains to the Standards Commissioner why he needed to claim his clock-in cash to pay his staffing bill:

“Bruce is employed by me to care for Theodore (my Bernese mountain dog) and my chickens whilst I am in London. He also helps me to perform various administrative tasks (i.e. scanning, typing etc.) when working from home.”

    Some of us have to look after our own chickens. They don’t just lay eggs of their own volition, you know.

    Good grief this man is utterly shameless.

    I am disabled but get not one penny with help or accommodation when I go up to London.

    It is high time that the Lords had a system to clear out their criminals. It can be done as Lester Piggott forfeited his gong. People can be de-kinghted, de-OBEed, etc, but not de-lorded – this is ridiculous. Of course, if it is that difficult criminal acts by peers can be deemed as treason and they can be beheaded and that would solve the problem.

      these chaps have paid good money for these awards

      they might give the game away if they had to hand back the gong – and sue the middlemen

      that would never do would it?

    Let me get this right, Lord Hanningfield. You are saying “I robbed your Bank to pay my servants”. Is this your mitigation? Counsel, did you get this lunatic to sign your Brief with these instructions?

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
