Lord Sewel Full Statement Text

LORD-COKE

Lord Sewel has this morning contacted the Clerk of the Parliaments indicating his intention to terminate his Membership of the House of Lords with immediate effect. In his correspondence to the Clerk Lord Sewel issued the following statement:

“I have today written to the Clerk of the Parliaments terminating my membership of the House of Lords. The question of whether my behaviour breached the Code of Conduct is important, but essentially technical. The bigger questions are whether my behaviour is compatible with membership of the House of Lords and whether my continued membership would damage and undermine public confidence in the House of Lords. I believe the answer to both these questions means that I can best serve the House by leaving it. “As a subordinate, second chamber the House of Lords is an effective, vital but undervalued part of our political system. I hope my decision will limit and help repair the damage I have done to an institution I hold dear. Finally, I want to apologise for the pain and embarrassment I have caused.”

Harman Horror at Penile Drugs Injection

Guido was having a Friday afternoon peruse of the Southwark News when he suddenly crossed his legs and winced:

Southwark council leader Peter John recalls the time Harriet Harman visited the Ayelsbury council estate with a local councillor:

“They were in a lift and a man was injecting drugs into his penis. That’s not a sign of a successful community. That’s not the kind of community we want to see.”

Funnily enough not an anecdote ever repeated in one of Hattie’s speeches. She’ll never be able to hear the words ‘lift shaft’ the same way…

Green Party Press Office Glasto Come Down

lucas bennett

The Green Party press office has had a ‘mare this morning, sending out a series of competing emails as both Caroline Lucas and Natalie Bennett vied for attention. It seems no one is quite sure who the real leader of their party is…

09:43:

“Lancashire councillors have chance to “draw a line under the government’s fracking fantasy”, says Natalie Bennett”

11:37:

Lucas, the Green Party MP for Brighton Pavilion, labelled the decision a ‘fantsastic victory’ in spite of Government efforts to ‘force through fracking’.”

‘Fantsastic’

12:20:

“Green Party leader Natalie Bennett has welcomed Lancashire County Council’s decision to refuse a planning application for fracking”

12:35:

“CORRECTION: The below quote was just sent out in Green Party leader Natalie Bennett‘s name, but it should have been attributed to Green MP for Brighton Pavilion Caroline Lucas. Apologies for any confusion.”

Did they all get mashed at Glasto, or something?

No Backing for Bad Boy Baldwin

One important face was missing from the backstage ‘spin room’ at last Thursday leaders’ Question Time encounter: Ed Miliband’s controversial media henchman Tom Baldwin.

In the last year Baldwin has been criticised for comparing a tax row to the death of ‘Milly Dowler’, making a sick jibe about cancer to a journalist, using the term ‘weaponise’ about the NHS and finally, last Monday, blaming the Prime Minister for migrant deaths in the Med, triggering a huge political row.[…] Read the rest
