    Labour MP Paul Flynn has recently had his "communications allowance" cut after taking the Michael out of a number of other MPs, from various parties, in a "magnificently rude" manner: BBC News

    The fact that "MPs voted last year to give themselves a £10,000 allowance to spend on boosting the public understanding of Parliament through websites and other publicity material" is probably another debate to be had on the Number 7 Outrage Bus (Westminster), and the bloke made no issue of paying the £250pa in this instance himself, but it appears that no-one in Parliament wants to face a bit of ribbing. Maybe the truth hurts? Either way, cries of "censorship" are being spouted around Westminster and the Welsh Assembly.

    As Mr Flynn himself puts it:

    Indeed Sir - given there aren't too many nice things you can pick up about politicians.

    I hope he does keep his blog running, if it means hearing just how cnutish your average politician is direct from the horse's mouth. Now, how much impact are his comments likely to make on the running of our country and what does Mr Flynn stand to gain from this little stunt?
  2. The PC Pillocks strike again

  5. F**k him, Lembit loves Spitfires , commits aviation on a regular basis and campaigned for the RJ Mitchell statue to be erected in Stoke. So that's good enough for me.
  6. Yeh but then he went and fcuked it up by marrying a cheeky girl.....
  7. Good man. As a member of a different party, but coming from near his constituency, I have had mixed opinions of Mr. Flynn.

    His description of the oleaginous, deceitful, opportunistic, smear of used oil that is Hain is wonderful. Both in Welsh seats!

    I am a card-carrying member of the Tory Party, but, I admire the following non-Tories:

    Kate Hoey; Frank Field; Diane Abbott; Vince Cable; Simon Hughes and Norman Baker. There are others.

    The 'Socialists' - I use the term loosely, that I despise most are far too numerous to list, but as a start:

    Bliar; Brown; Prescott; Milliband (both little scrotes); Hewitt; Harman; Hodge; Purnell; Hughes; Balls (dear God!); Mr. formerly admiral West - what a cnut - Blears and - can you believe this man? - 'This is how it is to be' Byrne?! Who on earth votes for the last named poltroon?
