Knife Amnesty Ends In Failure

The government’s knife amnesty has clearly not worked. The Campaign Group’s John McDonnell has been seen on many media outlets openly wielding one. Sources say he is mad, dangerous and should not be approached by Blairites.

Police may even have to take the Prime Minister into “protective custody”.

UPDATE : It was a mistake in Guido’s opinion for John McDonnell to heavy handedly threaten to sue humble comrade Kerron Cross, a blogging research assistant over an article he wrote. McDonnell forced him to take it down by complaining to his employer (a Labour MP) as well as threatening to report him to the Chief Whip under new PLP rules’. The article was pretty innocuous, and read by few people. Now it will be read [below] by some 25,000 people today…

Interesting message on John McDonnell MP’s Westminster office answerphone at the moment, which goes something like this:

“You are through to John McDonnell’s office, this is a very busy office, so in the interests of serving our constituents this office is closed for business on Wednesdays, and we only accept messages between 10am to 1pm Monday to Thursday.”

Obviously that’s messages between 10am to 1pm Monday to Thursday, except for Wednesdays, I presume.

So from this I take it that John McDonnell’s office is open 3 hours a day, 3 days a week.

I bet he is grateful for that 10,847 majority. He may need it.

So John, to whom are you going to report Guido?

Quote of the Day

Andrea Leadsom told BBC Radio 4’s Today

“He’s made his views on Brexit on the record, and the problem with that of course is that the chair’s impartiality is absolutely essential. … He’s made his views known on Brexit… it’s a matter for him but nevertheless it’s a challenge and all colleagues need to form their own view of that.”
