Soames Bemoans the Coarsening of Politics mdi-fullscreen

Speaking to the BBC’s Laura K, Nicholas Soames bemoaned the coarsening of politics in recent years, saying the Commons has “become a rougher, coarser place… it’s got very unpleasant”. 

That would be the same Nicholas Soames who during his years as an MP has:

  • Called Nigel Farage a “twat”
  • Blasted Tory MP Adam Afriyie as a “chateau bottled nuclear-powered c*nt” who is “totally f*cking disloyal, a f*cking disgrace to your party, your fellow MPs, your Prime Minister and your country”
  • Started woofing at a female SNP MP in the House of Commons Chamber
  • ShoutedBoy! Boy! Sit down boy” when then-short haired junior minister Yvette Cooper started speaking in the Commons
  • Told James Cleverly to “F*ck off you c*nt”
  • Was accused by six female MPs of being “the most prolific source of vulgar and sexist comments in the House of Commons.”
  • Would often ask working-class John Prescott, “Mine’s a gin and tonic, Giovanni, and would you ask my friend what he’s having?

Guido reckons civility in politics will only go up when Soames starts enjoying his retirement…
