Boris Trolls the Lobby

Given the events of this week, and the collapse in relations between the Lobby and No. 10, Boris took great pleasure in looking up to the Lobby gallery when he said this. Is this the start of renewed relations between the two or a sign of even more trolling to come…

Damian Green Calls Out Lobby “Snowflakery”

Damian Green – hardly an MP on the ‘Borisite’ wing of Tories – has skewered the “fake outrage” of the Lobby in his question during an Urgent Question requested by the Labour Party into yesterday’s Lobby farce:

“Does my Honourable friend agree that what we’re seeing here is some fake outrage and a mass outbreak of snowflakery?”

In the Labour Party’s MP briefing for the Commons session, they included the false information David Frost is a Civil Service appointee, and it fell to Clive Efford to walk into the trap. Minister for the Constitution, Chloe Smith, reminded Labour of Guido’s earlier report that Frost is a SpAd

Guido doesn’t think this will put the argument to bed any time soon however…

You Can’t Raisin With Sultana

Labour’s new wannabe-Pidcock, Zarah Sultana, made a very public showing yesterday of her career cluelessness, after declaring she refused to vote for any Tories in yesterday’s select committee chair elections.

Committee chairmanships are divided up by party. In not voting for any Conservative MPs, Sultana excluded herself from electing the chairs of key committees including Health, Foreign Affairs, or Women and Equalities. Unlike her NUS days, Zarah should probably wake up to the fact that she was elected to represent her constituents’ interests – not just virtue signal…

Taking even one moment to think about it Zarah would have realised that committee chairmanships are divided by party for a reason. If they were a free for all, the Tories (with their stonking majority) would win every single one. Her ignorance even drove current and former Labour politicians to point out her stupidity…

This kind of clueless Corbynite abstaining may have made a difference in tight votes like DCMS Chair; where BBC bashing Julian Knight thankfully pipped Cadwalladr fan Damian Collins to the post by just seven votes. Grape job, Sultana.
