Brave Bercow Bailed Before Blonde Bombshell Bashing

That must be a record for an Urgent Question. Prolix MPs were allowed to ramble at will around the Rotherham horror. At the end an hour and a half (UQs can be over in 25 minutes) the Speaker, in Michael Fabricant’s phrase “scurried off”.

Fabricant has questions about Saxton Bampfylde’s role in the now infamous appointment. He wants to ask the Speaker, personally. Under privilege.

The Speaker will try and stop him asking those questions because the answers are probably fatal.

Someone has acted with career-ending impropriety. It’s either the head hunters or it’s their client the Speaker.

Unless the Speaker takes to his bed with Pre-Traumatic Stress we might find out whether it’s the one or the other tomorrow directly after PMQs.

    Why wasn’t Michael Fabricant in the chamber yesterday when it was a hot topic?

    Why ask POO (point of order) today?

    I don’t get the interest in Bercow, especially with everything else going on. He’s just a dick with little man syndrome. This is Westminster Village stuff.

      But Joe Public is forced as usual to pick

      up all of the tab, like it or not !!! Most of

      this shower of deviants are not even capable

      of running a street market stall & would

      collapse @ the thought of getting there

      delicate hands grubby except when it comes

      to purloining Tax Payers Never Ending Supply

      Not just Westminster Village stuff, I’m afraid. He’s trying to change the way that Parliament functions and to, in effect, make himself King of the Commons. That will ultimately have an effect on all of us.

        The manipulative, deviant little Hunt should be given the Lord Lucan’s nanny treatment. No-one will need to worry about the stench, no change from the present disagreeable odour. God, is he repulsive. Gordon’s little homunculus.

    Unfortunately Bercow’s arrogance meant that he couldn’t live up to the old adage, ‘Be nice to people on your way up because you might meet them again on your way back down.

    I want my MP’s to ‘ramble’ on about the Rotherham horror for as long as it takes so as this abuse and establishment cover up never happen again.
    The longer in the public domain and the more coverage it gets the better.

      I’ve not seen or heard a peep about Rotherham since this business about chasing the kid round europe turned up .. 2nd story now is why we can’t stop jihadis returning.

      They are over the worst with Rotherham, biut compare the coverage it got (and will get) with the Coverage of the Jimmy Savile case, which was less serious by many degrees of magnitude (dozens rather than thousands of victims, an no long-term absue of individuals)

      Soon as I heard the word “chair” from the chief Yorkshire plod, institutionalised political correctness jumped out, we will never get to the end of anything when the drones all think the same, all I see is running around the tree’s grand style.

      Actually I thought Vlad was quite polite .

      He may have been spouting his version of the situation but at least he spouted something ……. most “dignitaries” ( such as our UK and US oligarchs) would have either ignored Sweeney completely or “done a Blair ” i e looked back with a completely bemused wide eyed expression as if to infer why on earth such an eminent person like him was being asked such questions !!

      Worth watching (2 min).

      Ask better questions, ask questions better.

      That’s what I’d advise anyone trying to take on Putin when he employs a soft-spoken interpreter to reply, and is intent on dragging out answers to own benefit.

      Separately, interesting to watch the heavies behind Putin’s right shoulder. and the look-a-like behind his left.

    So I was busy in the garden over the weekend, tending the shrubbery, cutting the grass and so forth.

    Then I considered that my back garden was just too small – especially as I have plans to erect a large shed, more paths and maybe a pond. I am also aware that my neighbour has plenty of unused garden.

    So I repositioned the dividing garden fence, and I appropriated about half of my neighbour’s back garden. I could have taken more but I didn’t want to be greedy.

    The next day a rather angry neighbour stuck his head over the fence and demanded to know what was going on.

    I could feel myself starting to fill with indignation because he was in such a foul mood. After he had been shouting at me for about 5 minutes, I interrupted and shouted at him;

    “Are you a Friend of Israel ?!”

    He replied in the negative along with a string of expletives.

    I replied: “You are anti-sem*tic, and I am going to complain about your disgusting behaviour !”

    Some people…

        Erm, so you have assumed my neighbur is a M*slim ??

        Or you are just making a pitiful attempt at deflection ?

        Another illegal ‘not very neighborly’ land grab from a suppsed ‘Friendly’ state, and P*kistani-heritage gangs attacking underage white girls.

        Two totally different reports: both truly evil and vile.

      Norm Normal says:

      That’s a poor analogy? In the real situation the neighbour isn’t there. He is in a refugee camp in Lebanon, has been for well over 50 years.

      No one cares, I don’t care, the world doesn’t care, not even the neighbour’s fellow Arabs give two sheckles.

      It’s time for the Palys to make the best of it. 2 state solution, game over, fuck off, stop bothering eveyone.

      When asked if he had raised the matter of the sewage works that is Rotherham with Mr Hedges, the previous CC and Acting CC and Assistant CC before that he replied…..”not got around to it yet”.

    Whilst the UK is rightly focused on Rotherham, and the UK and US is also focused on the threat of ISIS, and the ebola outbreak…

    Our ‘Friends in Israel’ just decided unilaterally to steal another 1,000 acres of their neighbor’s land – whilst nobody was looking.

    Suppose it makes a change from appropriating military and fiscal ‘aid’ from foreign countries.

    And who would want Friends like that ?

    Which might prompt the observation that politicians, police and the press cannot be trusted. That what’s needed is strict supervision by the people. How little it would cost to set up a whistle-blower’s website. Where reports of misdemeanours could be anonymously lodged, pursued to ensure investigation/action is being undertaken, and the lid blown off those revelations via public disclosure if not.
