Simon Schama V Rod Liddle on Refugees

TV historian Simon Schama won over the Question Time audience last night with this bizarre tongue lashing he dished out to Rod Liddle.

Schama “What’s really contemptible Rod, is saying emotion should have no part in how we actually respond”

Liddle “I’m interested in outcomes, not in your emotion…”

Schama “Do not presume to lecture me about the inadequacy of an emotional response. Go back to your journalistic hackery about outcomes and turn your suburban face away from the plight of the miserable.”

Who would have thought bashing the “suburban” would play well on the BBC?

Shadow City Minister Doesn’t Know Deficit, Hasn’t Met Anyone From City

Richard Burgon is known to Guido’s readers as the “farting commie“, thanks to his links to the Communist Party of Britain and propensity to suffer from flatulence in the Commons chamber. He is also Labour’s City spokesman, watch and cringe at this car crash on Channel 4 News last night:

Cathy Newman: “What is the deficit going to be this year?”

Richard Burgon: “Well. I’m not an economic, erm. I’m not somebody who’s gonna put a figure in a crystal ball on what the deficit’s gonna be at the end of the year.”

CN: “You don’t need a crystal ball, it’s in the government’s financial forecasts.”

RB: “I think it’ll be higher than the government says it’s gonna be…”

CN: “When was the last time that you met someone from the Square Mile?”

RB: “Well. We meet people all the time from the City.”

CN: “When was the last time you went into a City firm though?”

RB: “Well I was only appointed to this role a number of weeks ago. Parliament has been in recess…”

CN: “Have you fixed any meetings with anyone in the City?”

RB: “I’ve got a very busy diary as you can imagine.”

He makes John McDonnell look competent…

Juncker: Britain Doesn’t Need the EU

“We need Britain. Personally I don’t think Britain needs the European Union.”

Nigel Farage is quick out of the trap, “I want to buy Juncker some champagne. I have always had a personal liking for Jean-Claude Juncker even though we have political differences.” 

POLL: Juncker’s office is claiming he is being misquoted and that he said “I do think Britain needs the European Union”. You decide!

Cameron v Bercow: “Hold on a Second!”

Bercow was determined not to let Corbyn’s calm and well-behaved PMQs reduce his telly time. The PM threw out his arms in protest and cried “Hold on a second!” as the Speaker interrputed his best line of the day:

Quite a stare at the end…

Jeremy Hunt Trolled With a Sousaphone: Part II

Remember over the summer when Channel 4’s The Last Leg followed Jeremy Hunt around with a sousaphone? Well, they’ve done it again, this time outside Tory conference:

Somehow it never gets old…

Tories Cry “Shame” as Watson Refuses to Apologise

After the PM told Tom Watson to “examine his conscience” over Leon Brittan, the Labour deputy leader refused to say sorry at the despatch box:

“Earlier the Prime Minister said that I should examine my conscience. Well, I think we all need to examine our consciences in this House. We presided over a state of affairs where children have been abused, and then ignored, dismissed and then distained. If anyone deserves an apology, it’s them.”

The Tory benches responded with cries of “shame”, but Bercow spared Watson any further grilling…

Rose-Tinted: In Campaign Claim Each Person £480 Million-a-Year Better Off

BSE chief Stuart Rose seemed to be struggling with his notes at today’s campaign launch:

“Being in Britain saves every person around £480 million a year.”

Proof these Europhiles just make up their numbers as they go along…

Lawson v Mandy

“Time and time again I recall him saying that if Britain didn’t join the Euro this will be a disaster for this country. He’s now changed his mind. He now says if we left the European Union it would be a disaster for our country. Ladies and gentlemen, he was wrong then and he’s wrong now.”

Mandy’s face is a picture…

Straight Outta Westminster: Michael Portillo Raps NWA

Michael Portillo laid down some sick lyrics on BBC This Week last night with a very special version of NWA’s Straight Outta Compton:

“When I’m in your neighbourhood you better duck, because Portillo is crazy as f*ck…”[…]

John McDonnell Praises Spitting as a Form of Protest

Corbyn condemed the actions of the protesters spitting on delegates and journalists as unacceptable, but it appears no everyone holds the same anti-gobbing view. Just four years ago John McDonnell praised a trade unionist who spat in her manager’s tea every day:

“I always give the example of P&O when I worked for RMT, in the P&O dispute we had some real difficulties and all the rest of it – we lost, the strike was difficult and the struggle went on.

Strictly De Kirchner

Well-known Corbynista and Argentinian President Cristina de Kirchner has delighted supporters by spontaneously dancing at a campaign rally in Buenos Aires:

This isn’t the first time she has let loose, having cut some shapes to Ninel Conde’s “El bombón asesino” in December of last year:

Partying like it’s 1983…[…]

Dave’s Richard Murphy Sex Joke

Twitter’s favourite loony lefty tax blogger turned Corbynomics guru Richard Murphy went box office during Dave’s speech:

“There’s an academic called Richard Murphy. He’s the Labour Party’s new economics guru, and the man behind their plan to print more money.

He gave an interview a few weeks ago.

Cameron on Corbyn’s “Britain-Hating Ideology”

Cameron on Corbyn was about as brutal a personal attack as you can get:

“Thousands of words have been written about the new Labour leader.

But you only really need to know one thing: he thinks the death of Osama bin Laden was a “tragedy”.

Charlotte Church Blames ISIS on Climate Change

Charlotte Church talked geopolitics on Question Time last night:

“Lots of people don’t seem to know about this, but there is evidence to suggest that climate change was a big factor in how the Syrian conflict came about because from 2006 to 2011 they experienced one of the worst droughts in its history… which apparently did contribute to the conflict there today.

Corbyn Dances to “F**k You” as Stalin Looks On

Jeremy Corbyn found himself mobbed by a harem of tipsy fans at last night’s Mirror party. He politely shuffled his feet to Cee Lo Green’s “F**k You” but made his exit once his female admirers began throwing themselves at him:

Looking down upon him from the wall of Brighton Revolutions?[…]

Quote of the Day

Heather Wheeler talks to Burton Mail about her tweet…

“It was a tongue in cheek pop after the European Parliament tweet – it was purely that. I also wanted to congratulate Team GB on a brilliant result and thirdly congratulate the Commonwealth countries who also did very well. Fourth, I am also looking forwarded to establishing new trade agreements. That was it – nothing more. Let’s just enjoy the summer!”
