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.

    POO! He is 5’6″ and a quarter! Too tall to be a dwarf, he is a ‘silly little man’.

    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)

    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…

    We both had bad educashuns then.

  57. 57

    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 ?

    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 !!

    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.

    “Prolix MPs were allowed to ramble at will around the Rotherham horror.”
    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.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
