SPEAKER WATCH:  It’s a Question of Survival Now

How he used to suck at the udders of the House when it came to points of order. After taking half a dozen Bercow would coax, nibble, squeeze another lot out. “Any more? Anyone? Just a little one? Who’s got something for me?”

What a difference from today.

Michael Fabricant rattled his teeth with two questions. Why were recruiters Saxton Bampfylde prevented from telling the panel that Carol Mills was under two separate Inquiries in the Australian Senate? And was it the case that Carol Mills wasn’t even originally recommended by these head hunters?

The Speaker had begun the week emolliently promising a full, frank and friendly examination of all these questions. He almost snarled that Fabricant was “unfortunately but predictably wrong on both counts,” then blustered into an ad hominem attack on him for not having been in the chamber on Monday or if he had been he hadn’t asked a question but there it was and it was now time to move on.

In other words, “I am guilty as charged and if I don’t keep moving they’ll have the cuffs on me.”

Chris Pincher got even shorter shrift. He quoted an Andrew Sparrow report of “sources close to you” disparaging clerks, and…

He was shut up, told to sit down and – insultingly, some might think – told to “rise to the level of events.”

He is the rudest Speaker the House has ever had. And I speak as a connoisseur of rudeness. Bercow is in a class of his own.

But this is starting to look like the beginning of play proper.

He has been challenged, he may have lied to the House.

Was Carol Mills on the original long list of Saxton Bampfylde’s recommended candidates, or did John Bercow insist she be included?

Was Saxton Bampfylde prevented from informing the selection panel of the two Senate Inquiries into her department?

Bercow made a non-specific rebuttal. In what way Fabricant was wrong on both counts he didn’t say. He jinked away from an explanation. What on earth can be the reason (innocent face)?

Saxton Bampfylde’s reputation must be taking a pounding. Why don’t they say what happened? Are they afraid the Speaker will sue them?

The Speaker will not sue. The disclosure process would ruin him.

Edward Leigh made a point of order helpful to the Speaker. In a democracy “it is vital to uphold the authority of the Chair.”

That cuts both ways. If the Chair behaves in such a way to lose that authority he should go.

PS: further developments.

1) The meeting of the House of Commons Commission on Monday to try and fix this is now irrelevant. It is now firmly in the hands of the House via a select committee to consider the splitting of the roles into Clerk and CEO.

2) The issue will rumble on for months while the committee considers its evidence.

3) The Speaker will try to get Labour to whip against the Motion to establish the committee. It would go against convention, whipping a vote on House business – but it’s a question of survival now.

      You Ukippers whinge a lot, but you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet!

      If Labour get elected next year we’ll take over the running of the England football team, along with everything else because state control is better than private sector. We’ll introduce a gender neutrality process whereby at least 5 of the England team are female. Trust me, we’ll soon have England playing football as successfully as Scotland do already. In due course, we’ll split England into regions subject to results of local referenda.

      We’ll nationalise all football teams and rename them all “National Football Club”. Wherever you go in the country you will be able to pay a flat rate to go and watch a match between two sets of 11 National Football Club employees play each other. A new regulator, OffSide, will inspect them all regularly and league tables will be introduced to compare the quality of service to spectators.

      We’ll do the same for the England test cricket team. The thrashing of the Indians this Summer was all very fine and dandy, but I didn’t see any women in the team. There’ll also be an all-women shortlist for the captaincy when Cook steps down from the one day side.

      The idea that war is good for business is the old ‘broken window’ fallacy. (If countries don’t spend their money on bombs and bullets, they will instead spend it on something else, AND end up with something useful). The idea that capitalism fostered war was also an idea on which Marxists and Fascists agreed, as if Americans manufacturing washing machines somehow obliged Germany and the USSR to invade their neighbours.

    NATO spending should be back on the menu:

    Croatia’s 1.2% makes it middling, but at that level it is unlikely to be able to get the airforce it desires.

    It would be good if this did not set precedent for other EU member States for not funding adequately. De-funding the alliance would be strategically unwise – US patience is frayed. O’bama’s rhetoric about IS being the responsibility of !raq and its neighbours could well be redirected towards Europe which with the Russian threat could work out very costly indeed.

            EUCO I think are quiet as they are just standing by watching the member State governments tear the union apart and are letting them get on with it.

    “State of the Art Protection for our Troops.”

    Unless those vehicles are all fitted with the Israeli “Trophy” system then that is a downright lie.

    “Trophy” shoots ATMS and RPGs out of the air and automatically directs the vehicle’s fire at the attacker. The system is what allowed Israel to operate Tanks in Gaza.

      Had a look at the new Scout SV on YouTube. There don’t seem to be any final specifications but a trophy system would be desireable. It’s unclear precisely what it does have apart from the new armour and 360º vision system.

    Oi vey, my life says:

    An incoming UKIP government should immediately put in place a judicial review and public inquiry investigating the activities of Common Purpose and where its graduates are placed within civil society and government.

    Common purpose is the real enemy within, its graduates now infest the corridors of power from local government and the police to every public service and charity sector. Eradicate Common Purpose, outlaw this gang and make membership a criminal offence and the UK has a chance of rebuilding and renewal, leave this filth in place and we aint got a chance.

      Common Purpose is not the enemy.

      Apathy and lack of accountability is killing this country. No one ever gets sacked for doing nothing in a Council. Therefore they do nothing extremely well.

      I am going through a battle at the moment with a Council that just will not do anything except defend doing nothing. They have been waiting for others to finish, or events to occur, for 6 months now.

      If this major Council had a purpose, of any sort, they would act to protect themselves. However, they can not even manage that.

      If there was a purpose to their stupidity then at least we could defend ourselves. They would be predictable.

      The Councillors are now openly humiliating the Council for their inept and meaningless work. Yet the Council just accepts that it is normal. The leadership is leaving.

      Sadly we also have a very stupid MP.

      Do not blame a fake reason for just simple bad management and no fear of being held to account.

        I agree with you Council comments. Apathy, arrogance and incompetence is the norm now where councils are concerned, whatever their stripe. However I believe CP is the enemy. It’s fully on board with the NWO project, and it’s very secretive. Try an FOI to Aljabeeba re: it’s CO graduates. It refuses to answer, along with many other organisations. This insidious outfit t needs to be shut down ASAP.

    Just to show that not all M’uslims in the Middle East are against C’hristians:

    Lebanon realizes that it is firmly in the IS cross hairs now.

    The charm offensive is likely genuine, however, Lebanon does desire direct military aid in order to build up its air defences in order to counter IS.

    Handling Lebanon will be delicate. Would suggest that IS have intentionally allowed refugee flows to head to that country in order to destabilise the government on the one hand, and to make their more ‘genocidal’ activities easier to manage.

    That would present a very dangerous situation for the UK as we are currently in holy alliance with R’ome. However, the Orthodox churches of the East are more directly involved and under threat here – The secondary risk is if R’ome is considered to have abandoned and hence taken a position against the O’rthodox world. With the propaganda that some are putting out, that latter view may become a reality to many, rightly or wrongly.
