MP Submits Complaint About Royal-Hating Hansard Reporter

Following Guido’s report that a monarch-despising Hansard reporter had skipped the queue yesterday to watch the King’s address in Westminster Hall, he understands an MP has lodged a complaint against the staffer with the speaker. The MP’s complaint is on the grounds that Dominic Borghino’s behaviour, both in his posts and selfies around the estate, are in breach of the rules for passholders. Staff are constantly reminded holding a pass a privilege not a right.  The MP opines:

“I suppose if the most interesting thing about you is that you’ve grown a mullet and gained some much craved attention mocking the death of a 96 year of Great Grandmother, then what we really should feel is pity.

However, the truth is that holding a pass to work on the parliamentary estate is a privilege and not a right and it comes with responsibilities and an acceptance of basic standards and courtesies. This individual clearly has not met those standards and I hope that his pass will be reviewed.

If he’s so offended by the Crown in Parliament which underpins our parliamentary democracy, then perhaps he ought not work in that Parliament!”

After seeing Borghino’s picture, former Cabinet Minister Nigel Adams last night tweeted “Hadn’t realised Joe Exotic was on day release.”

Monarchy-Hating Hansard Staffer First in Line to Watch King’s Address

Last week, Guido’s attention was drawn to one member of parliamentary staff working on the estate whose reaction to the death of Her Majesty was out of step with most others’. While even Jeremy Corbyn managed to draft a pleasant memorial tweet, trainee Hansard reporter Dominic Borghino took to Instagram with selfies in his parliamentary office, post “what a shame !!!! anyway x”, and lightheartedly ask “where were u when she died”. His look was complete with a mullet and mini-skirt…

As a keen proponent of free speech, not least the right to hold republican views, Guido left the tip-off alone. Tuning into today’s coverage of King Charles’ address in Westminster Hall, however, he was astonished to see this monarch-hating staffer proudly sitting among the congregation; while plenty of pro-monarchy parliamentary staffers couldn’t be accommodated. As Borghino said on Thursday, “i am nothing if not an opportunist ❤️“…

Seeing Dominic in attendance is even more surprising given his views on the ex-wife of the new king…

Undoubtedly Dom won’t be able to resist skipping the queue to see the Queen lying in state, as all grey security pass holders are being allowed to do. No doubt genuine royal-lovers among the ranks of MP’s staffers won’t be able to take the time out to queue up for 20 hours to do likewise. This will no doubt only add to the anger of parliamentary staffers who have been denied such a privilege. Perhaps they should try sharing tasteless jokes on Instagram too…
