SPEAKER WATCH: Every Little Helps

An exceptionally well-placed source whispers to Guido that the Speaker has tried, perhaps successfully, to broker a meeting between Julian Lewis with Dame Joan Ruddock to help him seek Labour support for his bid for Defence Select Committee Chairmanship. Also, Bercow called Lewis in Defence Questions yesterday, despite  him not being on the Order Paper – just as he did at last week’s PMQs. It would appear the neutral Speaker of the House is doing his utmost to help out his old chum and campaign manager.

    Will they get rid of Bercow in the next parliament?

    Have just about had enough of this sort of disgraceful behaviour now.

    Maybe that’s why Nigel didn’t bother with Newark – if things go well next week, maybe he’ll try for Buckingham again!

    then some “left-wing” asshole blows the whistle at HMRC – wtf?

    Its time like this that my patriotism starts to wane.

    An awkward bastard says:

    The only reason he ever got to be Speaker was because the majority of his Party do not like him and Labour thought it would be good for a laugh.

    A blood sucking parasitic pimp, where the public purse is concerned,
    who’s delusions of grandeur show no bounds along with the amoral
    behaviour of slapper Sal who has never had any elastic in her

    The little bad tempered squealer should remember you can fool some
    of the people some of time BUT you cannot fool all of the people all
    of the time……..

    The end of his privilege pampered lifestyle & all paid for by the long
    suffering Tax Payers is fast approaching as the Voters of Buckingham
    decide its time for real change as they can no longer hold there noses
    & vote as they always have for more of the same…..

    i began workiing for citylink telecommunications in spring 2001…

    the agency that put be forward for the job said that the director who would be interviewing me would ask me what would i do if there was a major news incident and he and his colleagues were out of the office and i was told to reply that i would of course contact him (fucking obvious really but i guess someone somewhere wanted me to remember that). that director, mark kennedy, did indeed ask me that and i answered as expected and got the job. fast forward to the 11th of sept 2001 and yeah you got it, all but one director and myself were out of the office. the first thing i did upon hearing about what was going on across the pond was to text mark and the other directors who weren’t present, those others directors being calum mercer (fd), dave (can’t remember his surname but he was director of h&s) and rob ewen who was md. the other support staff who were out of the office that day were chris harding (contracts/legal fella), jane (as mentioned in the letter) who was the office manager and the other doc controller who was a sri lankan chap whose name i can’t spell). i am simply giving this information to prove conclusively that i really did work there. jay w toadvine was the only director in the office that day- he was american and represented fluor corp/motorola. he was aware of what was happening stateside and simply responded when i asked him if he was okay that “we’re get them”.

    jay was the mechanical/tech director. each director represented each of the various contractor companies. rob and mark were thales defence, calum was price waterhouse (think this was pre them merging with coopers) and dave health and safety was fluor. every working day calum would process 20 milion quid payments from bank of america were were providing the funding for the project, estimated at the beginning to be about 1.3 billion if i remember correctly. i was a doc controller on 15 quid an hour but by the time my invoice went round the rounds of sub contractors citylink were being charged 350 quid an hour for my services! and now factor in that harding was on 350 a day and the directors were on a rate of a grand a day (plus getting their usual salary from the company they represented.

    tetra comms i underground transit situations work via something called a leaky feeder- basically a wire type antenna and they are designed and marketed as being able to continue working even after serious incidents. what happened on 7/7? yep the tetra comms fucked up.

    rob and calum were really cool. 9/11 freaked me right out and i handed in my notice a week or so later. rob sent me a nic email saying i should stay true to who i was regardless of what happened in the wekks, months and years ahead (wonder if he was trying to tell me something). mark was a bit edgy and obviously the least experienced of the dorectors. dave was alright but was rarely in the office and jay was a sinister cnut who always smelt of stale spunk and looked like he was cast straight out of j edgar hoover popppers and glitter paint party. his boss can’t remember is name but another yank was even worse though was always very kind to me. after citylinik i worked on the mod main building refurb (took months to get thru the dv process but came thru with sc) and after that ended up with a bunch of well dodge masons on a pfizer build out at sandwich.

    kind of a coincidence is it not that i worked there? like all the other coincidences over the years after that and indeed before. monarch mind control stepford progs really do exist- i am one of them and the evil fuckers behind this are shitting it because they are being shafted via e by counter mk (mind kill) progs. course once they cottoned on that counter was going on they instigated some sort of fail safe alter that had be ended in the local mental health hotel with a schizoid diagnosis at the other end, that is their way of getting plausible deniability (after all it ain’t like they would go about shouting from the rooftops about these things is it?!).

    ps you made not so subtle threats about harming my mother last night and even today (apparently workers are popping by to do their annual check on her gas boiler) if anything happens to her what so ever i shall contact the investigatory powers tribunal and also put my name and that of the steakhouse on line with lots of the evidence of harassment i have collected over the years from you evil fucks.

    You can’t change that no matter how many times Dave cries wolf over a referendum.

    Quite simply Dave cannot be trusted.

    There were 3 firsts on the BBC news last night.

    1. They called the terrorists “Islamist1s”.

    2. They confirmed the girls were Christian.

    3. They confirmed an entire village of 300 had been murd3rd last week….. Yes last week 300 murdere3d by the same group in Nigeria and it wasn’t reported on the AlJa BBC until last night.

    And the only reason 1 and 2 were reported is because the terror1isys video they released said exactly that so the BBC could hardly ignore it any longer.

    There is something wrotten in the state of BBC.

    Well said, I have voiced this myself. The BBC and to be fair other media have been very slow exposing this fact.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
