SPEAKER WATCH: Bercow Cracks Joke in Ukraine/Gaza Debate

The PM was updating the House on the situation in Ukraine and Gaza, with MPs paying tribute to those who lost their lives and discussing what Britain’s response should be.

Enter stage left, John Bercow. Carrying a tin ear.

The Speaker interrupted the House’s discussion about Hamas with a joke about Cameron playing tennis:

Another black mark. 

UPDATE: A Westminster wag points out that Bercow has a book out soon on tennis.

      The Truth leaks out says:

      While there may have been looting, and combat conditions that made it hard for officials (though not journalists, it seems), to reach the site, it seems there has been more cooperation than Kiev maybe realised. Local police and emergency workers, it transpires, worked through the night under OSCE supervision to carry bodies to refrigerated trucks; last night, more than two-thirds of the 298 had been recovered. The black boxes are in the regional centre, Donetsk, waiting for investigators to collect them. Far from being kept away, investigators were asked, when they arrived, ‘where were you?’.

        Interesting debate on the Spectator site:

        Freedom

        “Typical lefty resentful of American freedom and success, always wanting to ignore the crimes of others as if America is the worst country in the world instead of the best (or one of the best). I don’t talk to America-haters, as I said below. Don’t address me again.”

        So, as far as “Freedom” is concerned, the US can do no wrong. Sadly for the NSA, many of us Brits can think for ourselves, and are willing to question the on-going anti-Russian BS. For, unlike our MSM and the Washington neo-cons banging the war drums, many of us reject a new Cold War. For the UK, the price is just to high.

          “Because it’s real you think it’s a joke
          Because it’s on your doorstep you have to have a poke
          At someone
          It’s only a cliche because it’s all true
          Time after time it happens through and through
          To a new generation

          You’re just so smug in your elected seat
          You’ve got your papers sorted out but you can’t find your feet
          Well, I’m not surprised

          Hey mister with your head in the clouds
          You can’t see further than the shillings and pounds
          The things that you say don’t mean nothing anymore
          You have no control they’ve broken down all the doors
          And the only way that you’ll fix them up
          Is another war

          If you think I’m gonna die in a financial war
          You’ve got another thing coming and
          And what’s more there’s lots like me

          You juggle lives around with the stroke of a pen
          But we’ve paid to see that move and now we won’t pay again
          The cost is too high

          Hey mister your smiles been erased
          You can’t understand why we’re losing face
          Perhaps it’s the promises that you never kept
          “Never had it so good”
          Well do you want a bet?”

          One very obvious difference. says:

          You accept that Hamas are terrorists then.
          The Northern Irish are still UK citizens and the UK government was correct not to want to inflict casualties on their own innocent citizens whilst chasing a handful of murderous republicans. People in Gaza are not Israeli citizens so Israel have a lot less qualms about going after murderous Hamas types if the collateral damage are hostile foreigners.

          It's not difficult to understand says:

          If Hamas want to start a fight with a far superior military power, then they’ll get clobbered. Stop fireing rockets and suicide bombings and they will have peace, if not, the Israelis will use all the methods at their disposal to stop them. If Hamas want to use human shields of Palestinians then they’ll be collaterall damage. The Isrealis do everything to protect their citizens, Hamas encourage the deaths of Palestinians because it makes for great propaganda. Whose worse?

    Yes, I do agree Hamas are terrorists. I don’t accept all Palestinians are terrorists. I’d agree with your general point except that Israel is illegally occupying land it has no right to. If you were to follow your logic of not being so concerned about foreigners in contrast to the Northern Ireland situation, you may remember a lot of funding for the IRA came from America. Did we launch strikes on the homes of Americans who were funding the IRA and bomb their hospitals?

Boris on his fellow Islingtonista Emily Thornberry:

“It was an entirely run-of-the-mill English townscape, with some straightforward words to go with it. There was no obvious insult, no abuse, no overt sneering. She might have got away with it entirely, had some alert blogger not spotted it. He instantly detected the coded message that Emily Thornberry was sending to all her right-on, bien-pensant, Labour-luvvie friends in Islington, or wherever else it is that they follow her on Twitter.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
