Bumbling Burnham Crashes and Burns on Benefits and Petrol

Lots of gold from the GMB Labour leadership hustings today.

Firstly, Andy Burnham was booed as he floundered around refusing to back the benefit cap.

The crowd wanted a no, but he knew the country would give a resounding yes.

And the banter did not stop there. He later got the price of litre of petrol wrong, declaring it was 160p:

It’s 116p.

Delicious…

 

Kay Burley Burns Tory MP

“We are a broad-church” insisted new Tory MP Craig Mackinlay to Sky News earlier.

 “You know what happened in that TV programme?” replied Kay Burley. “Lots of people die.”

Brutal…

BoJo: We Must Be Willing to Go

EU REFORM

“Now is the chance to build that coalition for reform. It may not be easy, and it may take a while – beyond 2016, I am sure”, says Boris this morning. After telling the Telegraph he was against an early referendum, the Mayor dodged the question on whether he would resign when asked by Sky earlier:

“You’ve got to be able to walk away. Now the PM is going to be successful in the negotiations but if he doesn’t get the deal he wants he’s got to be open to Britain deciding there can be an alternative future.”

Helpful, when the PM is backtracking on last night’s “over-firm” briefing that “If you want to be part of the Government you have to take the view that we are engaged in an exercise of renegotiation to have a referendum and that will lead to a successful outcome.” Which seems to pre-judge the outcome…

Greg Hands on Don Cameroni and the Five Families

Chief Secretary to the Treasury Greg Hands used a fairly punchy election night analogy when addressing CWF on Saturday:

“You know the scene at the end where Michael Corleone is holding the baby at the baptism, and he’s reading the out the name of the father and they say do you reject sin. And he’s holding the baby. That was like our Prime Minister holding the baby of our Conservative only government. While meanwhile his five main opponents are all being gunned down. Ed Miliband, gone. Ed Balls, gone. Nick Clegg, gone. We had Nigel Farage, gone. We had Vince Cable gone. Just like in the Godfather, the heads of the five families all wiped out.”

Free from the shackles of the whips office now…

‘Eck-Rated: Salmond’s Mile High Nose Dig

The former First Minister was filmed digging for victory by a fellow passenger on a flight down from Aberdeen. In all he spends over a minute picking, inspecting and picking again:

Readers can make their minds up about whether his finger then went to his mouth:

Living up to his reputation as Westminster’s bogeyman…

Ken Clarke tells the Ben Fellows trial:
