Cable and Munt Face Inquiry Over Clegg Plot Polls

A spokesperson for the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner has confirmed that they have launched an investigation into whether Vince Cable broke Commons rules by failing to declare the Oakeshott poll in his constituency. The BBC reports that an inquiry has also begun looking at whether Tessa Munt, Cable’s PPS, should have declared a poll by Oakeshott in her own constituency as a gift in her register of interests. Won’t be an easy one for either of them to explain…

    No, not “a spokesperson” for the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner. You mean, “a spokesman” – the grammatically correct generic term. “Spokesperson” is achingly right-on and politically correct. Something we expect from Labour and the LibDrems, not from you.

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.”
