Corbyn: ‘Crime is Wrong’


Corbyn confirmed his strong grasp of basic law and order policy at PMQs:

“I am very clear that crime is of course wrong.”

In an exchange about knife crime he went on to suggest “rehabilitation” and “community service orders.” Jail?

“Cavemen” v “Grow Up” – Double Sexism PMQs Faux Outrage

Labour are calling Lidders sexist for telling Thornberry to “grow up”, and Number 10 have even slapped him down and said May would not have used that language.

Meanwhile some Tory MPs are saying Thorners is sexist for calling them a “coalition of cavemen”.

How about everyone calms down and gets off the outrage bus…

Thornberry Thinks 16 Years Olds Should Have Right to Vote But Not Use Sunbeds

Good Lidders smackdown of Thornberry’s votes-at-16 nonsense. “It was the last Labour government that raised the age for using a sunbed to 18”. Thorners on poor form as she transparently tries to butter up the Corbyn youth vote for her leadership bid…

Anything But Another Year of This

Reality dawns: another year of this sh*t. Every sitting week, for at least an hour, for another year, the torture of PMQs continues. Our Christmas wishes were not granted: no sudden resignations, no personality transplants, no new stopwatch for the Speaker – just the very same, for another year, the perpetual merry-go-round of this utter, horrendous nightmare continues to turn. Could there be a duller prospect than 365 more days? Of these two? End it all now – end it now before it has even begun. 

Despite spending two weeks in Mexico, Jez didn’t even look sun-kissed – but he used his first outing of the year to prove he is still red inside. The Labour leader paid homage to the Sacred God of Health Our NHS (“envy of the world”, Britain’s pride, Britain’s joy). For once leading on something actually in the news, he put the ‘Winter Crisis’ (referred to by May as “winter pressures”) at the top of his list of ‘questions’ – to show the fans he cares – even though he was literally on the other side of the planet while the ‘crisis’ developed. He didn’t mention his holiday. Funny that…

Jezza’s PMQs Christmas List

Dear Santa

First of all, can I take this opportunity to thank you for all the hard work you will do this year. Not just you, but Mrs Claus and every one of the reindeer as well. I pay tribute to you and all those who work in our National Elf Service, who, just like our heroic postal and emergency workers, brave snow and hail to provide the services each and everyone of us rely on. We thank all of them.

Our elves haven’t had a pay rise for ten years and many of them do not know how many hours of work they will get until Christmas Eve. We back a pay rise for our NES.

Can I also thank the Grinch, Mr Scrooge, and all those who have ever stolen or threatened Christmas. Let me say this: we support both those who embrace Christmas and those who oppose Christmas. All those involved in this great season, on whatever side, will be investigated and dealt with according to our procedures as appropriate.

Why Do Corbyn and May Make Random Rambling Ranty Statements at PMQs?

Interesting theory from the BBC’s Joey D’Urso – are Jeremy Corbyn’s random ranty rambling non-questions at PMQs deliberately off topic because when clipped up into short videos and pumped out on social media they go viral with his followers? Every week Labour clip his statements and they get hundreds of thousands of views. They seem irrelevant to the small number who watch PMQs live, but look much better as stand alone Facebook videos.

The same theory could explain why Theresa May’s pre-scripted attacks on Corbyn often seem entirely irrelevant to the question:

Though perhaps we are giving them too much credit and they’re both just dire at PMQs.

Emily Makes Damian Choke


Emily Thornberry dominated Damian Green at Prime Minister’s Questions with a touch so light it was but a table cloth flapping in the breeze. She kneed the disgraced First Secretary over and over again – where it really hurts him, the only place it really hurts any of them – in the ego.

Was he “happy to be held to the same standards in government that he required when he was in opposition?” This first, hard, full stroke shook the First Secretary, it landed with the weight of a Sue Gray report – and the moral force of one, too.

Yes, mistress, said Green: “All ministers should respect and obey the ministerial code.” A touching thought. 

One question in, it was very clear that the essence of politics was being laid bare. All politics is hypocrisy. All politicians are hypocrites. Continue reading
