Tory Aide Heroically Pursues Rosindell Car-Smashing Vandal

 

This is the extraordinary moment fearless Tory aide Chris Muspratt pursued Kieron Nickles, the vandal who had thrown a brick through the window of Andrew Rosindell’s car. Nickles testified that he had lost his temper after hearing “Vote Conservative” blaring out of Rosindell’s vehicle during the election campaign. The defence stated: “He believed it was a breach of the peace, and so picked up a brick from the garden, and put it through the window”. What Nickles didn’t bargain for was Rozza’s parliamentary assistant Muspratt giving chase, leading to not one but two nasty falls for the perpetrator and a demolished garden fence for a constituent. Nickles was yesterday given an 8 week curfew and ordered to pay £300 costs. Justice served…

Thornberry: “I’m Happy To Go”

Some confusion over the precise sequence of events regarding Labour’s suspended MP Kelvin Hopkins this morning, as Dawn Butler said on Marr:

“My understanding is… when the chief whip was informed of an issue against a member it was dealt with and both sides were happy with the outcome.”

Thornberry later stressed Kelvin “Twerk Me” Hopkins is under investigation and wouldn’t be drawn further on what Labour knew. The Shadow Foreign Secretary threatened to walk out of her interview on Paterson as she was pushed on why Hopkins was promoted after the allegations were first made:

“I’m sorry, that’s what you’re getting, I’m happy to go…”

Clive: She’s Lying

Clive Lewis tells Sky News his accuser is “lying” but goes on to admit “we’re in a different environment, it’s a different situation post-Weinstein and that is sad”. He also says he doesn’t grope women’s bottoms “as a rule” because “that’s not how I roll”. Not sure that is the best defence – Labour still failing to suspend him…

This allegedly happened at the same event where he said on your knees bitch swigging lager from a can of Red Stripe. In the video he seemed pretty reckless that night, alcohol had been taken and he was in a party mood. The woman complainant has a witness…

BBC: Home of Despite Brexit

Last week David Dimbleby unwisely challenged Brexit champion Jacob Rees-Mogg when he pointed out the BBC had regularly pushed the “despite brexit” agenda. A clearly riled Dimbleby tore into Rees-Mogg on Question Time:

“Can you actually specify an occasion when you’ve heard that… have you got a quotation?… Are you sure, are you sure?”

Well… how about these, all from the BBC News website…

We’re sure, Mr Dimbleby…

Ruth: The Dam Has Broken

Ruth Davidson, addressing Michael Fallon’s resignation in the wake of the Westminster sexual harassment scandal, tells Today:

“The dam has broken on this now, and these overwhelmingly male dominated professions where the boys own locker room culture has prevailed, and it’s all been a bit of a laugh, has got to stop.”

Before the dam broke Ruth tweeted this:

She laddishly told this line at a Lobby lunch:

“That’s kind of the difference between our two parties. You know, Labour’s still fumbling with its flies while the Tories are enjoying a post-coital cigarette after withdrawing our massive Johnson. Sorry that’s not even my speech, that’s just a text from Stephen Crabb.”

Oh, Ruth….

Former Whip Explains How They Could Cover Up Sex Abuse Scandal

At PMQs Lisa Nandy raised this clip of former Tory whip Tim Fortescue explaining back in 1995 how party whips could help cover up a potential sex abuse scandal. Nandy says she brought it up with Theresa May three years ago. To be fair to the PM this references the whips office in the seventies and is somewhat different to the current scandal, but a sign at least of what used to go on…

Former Tory Whip: It’s Not a Witch Hunt

“I don’t think it’s a witch hunt. I think there are clearly MPs that are behaving very inappropriately and those individuals need to be held to account, taken to task and if they lose their ministerial jobs well so be it.”

Quote of the Day

Jo Swinson on Chris Rennard…

“Vince — and Tim before him — have repeatedly, publicly said Rennard is not welcome anywhere near their frontbench team, even as an adviser. I remain deeply frustrated that he was not expelled from the party through its disciplinary process. It just feels wrong, and I do not want Lord Rennard to continue as a member of the party. As far as I am concerned, he is not welcome.”
