Bercow Braced for Post-PMQs Showdown

All eyes on the Speaker at today’s back to school PMQs. Yesterday Bercow scarpered before Michael Fabricant could give him a grilling and this morning he is spinning hard in the FT about how Clerk stitch up of the Clerk job isn’t a “power grab”, honest. Fabbers is hoping to be called for more Points of Order after PMQs today, and he also has a few for Hague tomorrow at Questions to the Leader of the House. There’s no getting out of it for the Speaker this time, he has submitted written questions as well:



  1. 1
    Mitch says:

    Good that a serious politician like Fabricant is on the job.

    This Berk-ow needs to go….

    Owen Jones is a cunt says:

    As for Sally, she’s always braced…

  4. 4
    Owen Jones is a cunt says:

    What are the current odds on Bercow being ousted before the year’s over?

  5. 5
    Ethel of Purley says:

    Tony B LIAR, mass murderer, war criminal, ego maniac named as philanthropist ot the year, now you know satire is dead, I just wish he was dead.

  6. 6
    Reader says:

    The trouble for Fabricant is that while he is correct in most of what he says and popular with many on the right, he but is difficult to take seriously because of his knobbish track record. I hope he has a number of other colleagues lined up to join in this task who aren’t quite such freakish political marmite.

  7. 7
    The Nobel Peace Prize Committee says:

    You really couldn’t make it up.

  8. 8
    Mitch says:

    Will he be wearing the false moustache again? Y’know – to add some gravitas to the situation..

  9. 9
    Buckingham Voter says:

    A pause to witness the hypocrisy:
    When one scrote calls out another scrote for being a scrote, and the second scrote responds to this by calling the first one a hypocrite.

    It is usually the case that the sheer mass of irony inherent to the situation at this point causes a tear in the fabric of space-time, resulting in both scrotes being sucked into a black hole of self-absorbed narcissism. Innocent bystanders are advised to quickly become apathetic to the confrontation, lest they too become sucked into the singularity.

  10. 10
    Tony Blair says:

    Look, guys, I know some of you don’t like me, but the fact is I’m a pretty straight sorta guy. I’m straight about the fact I’m a mass murdering war criminal who’s made about 100 million in blood money.

    It’s just as well no one has checked to see if the proceeds from my memoirs went to charity as I said they would. What is important is.

  11. 11
    Owen Jones is a cunt says:

    Labour voters are so thick, I bet if you did a poll asking them who’s to blame over Iraq, they’d answer Thatcher.

  12. 12
    Bellum says:

    Gone from 7-2 to 3-1.

  13. 13
    Mitch says:

    Bercow and Fabricant do appear to be two peas from the same pod.

  14. 14
    Anon & VOTING for UKIP in May 2015 GE & LE says:

    And he will be slithering into Celtic Manor later today

    for the NATO meeting as the Middle East Whore Monger

    but of course the MSM have been told not to report he is

    attending……….wonder why ??

  15. 15
    Winston says:

    David Cameron in 2007:

    “By using the word ‘Islamist’ to describe the threat, we actually help do the terrorist ideologues’ work for them”.

    David Cameron now:

    “We need to be absolutely clear on where the origins of where these terrorist attacks lie. That is the existence of an ideology, Islamist extremism”.

  16. 16
    el tigger says:

    Does Fabricant mean “contracts” (as he has written) or “contacts” (which seems the more appropriate question)?

  17. 17
    Old Git says:

    On winning Philanthropist of year, Blair says, “I would like to dedicate this award to the people that work with and for my organisations. I feel the pulse of progress beating a little harder.”

    Is that like the hand of History?

    Ed Balls- Mathematician of the Year.
    Fartbott: Dieter of the Year.

    TBF that may be a Hansard typo.

    Owen Jones is a cunt says:

    I wish someone would put the hand of choking on his throat.

  21. 21
    Owen Jones is a cunt says:

    Mark Duggan – Hero of the year

    Yvette Cooper – FHM Sexiest Woman in the World

    RWG says:

    Scarpered? Shouldn’t that be scurried, as in rat?

  23. 23
    Guido is a Jeremy Hunt says:

    Well put Owen

  24. 24
    Dangerous Brian says:

    David Cameron, never knowingly right.

  25. 25

    Definitely scurried – the horrid man-rat

    John Bercow says:

    I can’t wait for the Lords gig. Get a bit of kip.

    Dangerous Brian says:

    Russel Brand-Political thinker of the year

    Speaker Out says:

    Doesn’t anyone check drafts at Hansard these days? The order paper or whatever it is, is riddled with errors – significantly ones that don’t light up on a spell checker!

  29. 29
    No Sharia Please, We're British. says:

    True but on this occasion knowingly wrong. He will have had full security briefings on ISIS and will know that they are fundamental M*slims who seek to follow Mo’s example to the letter and to follow the teaching of the Kor’an, and to implement Sharia, the law of Is*am.

    If they are extreme then all four traditional schools of Islam are extreme.

    Listen to Brother Rachid explain it all:

    Once Sound Bitten, Twice Shy says:

    Let’s face it – who knew about the Yazidis before he came along to spread the lurv message.

    Fred the pensioner says:

    Don’t fret, Pet, it is only Shirley’s ejikashin reforms finally coming home to roost.

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
