    Betty was an impressive speaker well suited to the role who served parliament admirably. The present incumbent is a midget (pun intended) in comparison who seems think that the position means serving himself whilst lording it over others more capable.

    Oi vey, my life says:

    The BBC leading the world in partisan bias now with its reporting on the shooting of a strong arm robbery suspect in the USA, no need to wait for the evidence and when it does emerge they ignore what does not serve their biased agenda.

    White cop guilty of racism and murdering an innocent little gentle child, white police force guilty of excessive force, one look at the photo of the genial little ten year old smiling out innocently shown repeatedly with emotive comments.

    Selective selling of the autopsy ignoring that the BBC claimed he was shot while running away and then shot while on his knees when in fact he was shot in the front while he was running toward the officer.

    The BBC? Half the story half the time and only if and when it serves their agenda.

      Just been into the kitchen for a quick breath of methane. No discernible effects? According to it’s wiki page methane isn’t toxic so I’m not surprised.

      Regarding the cattle deaths. Few documented cases. The only verifiable case is from 2009 where 17 cattle died after drinking hydraulic fluid from leaking machinery. It wasn’t fracking water.

      The so-called study by professor Oswald, oft quoted by Ecoloons isn’t science. It’s a collection of anonymous quotes and anecdotes, which can’t be independently verified. The professor isn’t an expert in the field.

    IS have made some tactical errors near M’osul which left them as sitting ducks for the early air strikes:

    However, the most important aspect of the R’euters report is the sentiment expressed by the Y’azidi woman at the border: ‘We do not want !raq, they have sold us out’.

    That was shouted as K’urdish border guards prevented the Y’azidi from crossing the border into T’urkey.

    I would suggest this is a propaganda win for IS and perhaps should call into question some aspects of UK Gov support for the K’urds in preventing refugee’s from leaving the country.

    !raq it would appear is simply a prison for the Y’azidi.

      I do hope the £100 million (if that’s the right figure) is being deducted from the aid budget (aka “Barnett Formula”) we give Scotland, or even better, taken only from the pockets of Scottish taxpayers.

      If there are any net Scottish taxpayers. There might be one or two. Poor sods.

    Betty is no longer Speaker! says:

    It amazes me you know. There she sits piously in the unelected Lords on her considerable Pension, Lords Attendance pay and various other little perks that you and I could only dream of and she has the gall to criticise the finest Speaker Britain has had since George Thomas in the 70s for wanting to drag Westminster into the 21st century!

    She was a rubbish Speaker too!

    Added to the fact that at least John Bercow has common sense and knows and understands the need for Britain to have a Labour government and that the Tories need to lose the election!

    Good analysis:

    A bit arcane, but this is a very important aspect of the U’kraine situation.

    Vote UKIP :-D

    “Betty Boothroyd Says Carol Mills Not Up To Job”
    Bit of a Betty Boop(er) there? Since if any in the upper-house were up to theirs, would they still need to position themselves outside the election process? Not so much a job for life, as a job for the half-life of many fissionable materials.
