Corbyn at PMQs

How will Corbyn fare at PMQs? Here he is getting handbagged by a dose of Thatcherite reality… Totally owned.

Labour Could Do Worse Than Harriet

gallery_guido-2

The Labour party is now so broken, so foaming and fitting it’s calling Harriet Harman a Tory. She is supporting the idea that the state shouldn’t necessarily be paying benefits for impecunious women to have twelve children. This makes her Norman Tebbit in a frock.

She stood up at PMQs to long Conservative cheers, applause, acclaim. How pleased they were with her. “One of us! One of us!”

The Speaker, now a toad beneath the Tory harrow made no attempt to control them. His livelihood is dependent on pleasing his erstwhile enemies who had been his erstwhile friends and who are currently his masters.

Harriet, in her big white power jacket, looked better and sounded more leaderly than any of the leadership candidates. She doesn’t have Cooper’s vinegary misery-mongering, or Burnham’s SpAd mentality, and she’s got fifty kilos on Kendall. That’s all good. She’s also fractionally less left wing than front runner Jeremy Corbyn. Labour could do worse than Harriet. And almost certainly will.

SKETCH: Ladies Tennis, ISIS and EVEL MacSporrans

Were they tails that the Speaker was wearing, and a waistcoat? Is he finally dressing the part? It’s cruellest trick he’s playing on his critics. He’s turning himself into a decent Speaker. Acting the part, dressing the part, sounding the part. He doesn’t even intervene with his tortured Macaulay-isms to kick things along (and as a result, for the first time ever he didn’t get through the order paper). He’s obviously settling in for the duration. He will die in office and even then he will not quit.

Harriet played a pleasant, polite and perfectly charming game of ladies’ tennis with the prime minister. In their exchanges, they mused about Heathrow, the death of tourists, the Prevent program and how it hadn’t succeeded in preventing anything. So now, it appears there is “a statutory duty on public bodies to challenge radicalisation.”

But how?

For politicians the first tactic is to manipulate the language. Continue reading

A Glimpse Into the Sort of PMQs Bercow is Trying to Make the Norm

So, there’s a prime minister in waiting. Gallery reports of his sneeriness should be discounted.

Quote of the Day

Preston Council leader Peter Rankin explains rising anti-Semitism…

“You need to think why this anti-semitism is getting worse. It’s because of the actions of the IDF shelling schools and hospitals and killing and maiming thousands of men, women and children.”
