Labour Sorry for Hospitalised MP Wife Attack

“Jake Berry, absent” cried the Speaker as the Tory MP for Rossendale and Darwen, whose name was on the Order Paper for PMQs, failed to appear when called to ask his question. Cue Labour whips piling in and living to regret it about three minutes later:

They have since sent him a full and frank apology. Awkward.

      Jake Berry or his office should have informed the speaker of his whereabouts. We’ve all had to miss something because of an emergency and 99.99% of us managed to convey our excuses.

      If he had the time to make what is a very sarcastic tweet then he had the time for a simple “sorry I can’t make it” message.

        Could you cite the source of that statistic?

          My experience is that 100% have made their reasons known but I knocked off .01% in case there is an odd bod in the comments.

          People just do, they always do, make it known in my experience.

          Plus that sarcastic Tweet gives his game away.

            Do we know that he didn’t?
            His name would have been called out because it was on the published order paper. He may well have contacted the Speaker’s office to say that he wouldn’t be able to attend.

            Do you know the full circumstances? If my wife was rushed to hospital in an emergency, the last thing I would be thinking of would be informing my employer. After the event, whilst she was recovering, I might think to call them to let them know what was happening. In general, mobile ‘phones have to be switched off in hospitals.

      Today was a bad day for me on radio 4.
      Awoke at just after 6am to hear the dulcet tones of Harriet Harperson and later David Blunkett.
      Switched off all day but put on PM to just miss the same Harriet Harperson and then Caroline Quinn on her usual biased diatribe about Cameron et al et al.
      Off now for the rest of the day. At this rate all my radios will join my TV on the scrap heap and I will use the internet only.

        Umunna should be warned not to get his member out in public and especially not in the potential presence of an owl. Owls, whilst possessed of strong binocular vision, can be tempted into predatory behaviour by waving, local game. He might find that in the wink of an eye the passing owl will have secured its talons into his member and he finds himself half way up a tree and being dragged back to the owl’s nest. This, of course, holds good with not a few MPs also.
        On no account should he attempt to wear the owl on his person.

    EFD has rebranded to: Europe of Freedom and Direct Democracy

    This is good: They are still not explicitly anti-federalist (unlike the ‘Eurorealist’ ECR) which places them in a stronger position politically.

    If FN can straighten their act out and join the Europe of Freedom group at a later date that would be a very positive development. The real reaction in France would be better channelled towards direct democracy: That is really what the people are demanding, and is fully on the page with a French view of European Federalization.

    A possible future combining of French and !talian interests through such a group would also significantly strengthen the case for shifting Europe in that direction.

    The pan-Europa / socialist and Eurorealist options offered by EPP / S&D and ECR are not optimal individually. ALDE seem to have temporarily lost their voice.

    The tension these positions are generating across the Eurozone does have similarities with those which led to the political destabilization of G’ermany in the late 1920’s / early 1930s.

    What is the difference between Cook the Captain of the England XI and Ed Milican’t? Bugger all. They’re both hopeless losers. Neither of whom will resign.
    Or, indeed Cameron the PM and Hodgson the Manager of England’s football squad? Nope still no difference. Neither of them make convincing excuses. In Hodgson’s case, he claims to have sent out a young team, the better to gain experience….of losing. At least Cameron has that experience and will repeat it in 330 or so days time.
    It would make some difference if Clegg could cross the sword-lines and bite a chunk out of Balls. He might gain a bit of respect AND sort out a terminal condition that is certainly going to prove fatal for him and his Party in a few months time.
