Are They Just Jumping Through Hoops?

Having got back from a five bottle lunch Guido was more than a little confused when he tuned into the parliamentary debate about a donkey called monkey.  Anyone fill us in?

For some reason Downing Street are fighting Mark Pritchard’s Wild Animal in Circuses Bill.

He claims “they”, presumably he means the government whips, offered him a job to drop it – “a pretty trivial job” – admirably he’s ended up going rogue and sticking to his guns. What is it about  the exploitation of circus performers that Downing Street opposes?

Oh what a circus! Oh what a show!

Quote of the Day

Councillor John Thomas, Keith Vaz’s Leicester East Constituency Labour Party Chairman says…

“This is great disappointment to me, realising that I have spent over 30 years of my life working for a party that I now know that I have nothing in common with. This is not the party I joined, the party for decent working people. I can no longer follow the clown that leads the Labour Party, he is heavily influenced by the Trotskyite Len McCluskey and is now as the Hoki Coki leader, in out, and shake it all about he has turned this great party into a laughing stock.”
