Paul Bristow Slams Lloyd Russell-Moyle for Miriam Cates Intimidation

Tory MP Paul Bristow just made a point of order in the Commons rightly condemning the behaviour of Lloyd Russell-Moyle on the green benches last week. While Russell-Moyle has already apologised for failing to control his “passion” during his screed at Miriam Cates last week, his decision to then sit directly next to her on the Tory benches has also sparked outrage. Surely just a coincidence… 

Deputy Speaker Dame Rosie Winterton also responded, although hedged her bets a bit by claiming “it is very difficult for me to know what was in the honourable gentleman’s [Russell-Moyle’s] mind” when he sat a yard away from the woman he’d just screamed at. Doesn’t seem that difficult to Guido…

This morning, Lloyd tweeted:

It is not uncommon at the end of a debate for people to sit at different seats while waiting to enter the chamber or the lobbies.

I had no concept that this was making any member feel awkward and would never do anything to deliberately intimidate anyone in or out of the chamber.

Guido will let observers decide whether Russell-Moyle’s seating decision was a mere coincidence…

Peterborough MP’s Speedy Justice

Paul Bristow, MP for Peterborough, has been given a 28-day driving ban after admitting to speeding. The MP took his punishment after, to his credit, having asked to be banned to avoid “hypocrisy”. Bristow was caught doing 76 mph in a 50 zone, and admitted to the incident in his Peterborough Telegraph column, saying he had to do so in order to retain credibility. It was Bristow’s third offence in two years, and along with the ban was ordered to pay £667, a victim surcharge of £68, and £110 costs. What is it about Peterborough’s MPs and speed limits?

GB News Finally Available in Parliament

MPs led by Paul Bristow have secured victory after parliamentary authorities finally enabled their televisions to receive GB News – two weeks after it launched. In his letter to the House Authorities last week, Bristow explained it was somewhat disappointing that no provision has yet been made for this important entrant to UK News broadcasting”.  While Al Jazeera and Russia Today were…  

Bristow’s finally confirmed the good news:

Guido hears some civil servants are facing similar restrictions…

MP Bollocked by Committee Chair for Reading Out No. 10 Text Calling Cummings a “Disingenuous Little F*cker”

Sky News also had to interrupt and apologise. Their voiceover lady was clearly told to keep her finger on the button after Cummings got away with a “sh*t” and a “f*ck” earlier…

Paul Bristow: Mustard King

New intake MP Paul Bristow isn’t resting on his nickname laurels after being dubbed Parliament’s most eminent wrestling MP. Like most members he recently celebrated National Farming Day, saying one farmer in his constituency told him Peterborough grows “some of the finest mustard seeds in the whole country”, and as such Bristow can call himself “The Mustard King” – an alias he has now embraced. Guido even hears Bristow’s whip is addressing him thus, signing off one recent chat with “all hail the mustard king”. Guido says he hears – it could be an unreliable sauce…
