Blame game

#2
I blame YOU Harry (I seek to turn this into an actual blame game)


PS. I also love how the house of commons sounds like a schoolyard arguement. *point made* *people agree shout 'yehhh, f@ck off wooo'* *people opposed get sh!t faced*

There is, of course, nothing I can say nor do to disabuse you of such a position. On the other hand ... :)

Edited because I have had to read read thousands of words today!

Serves her right. The same woman that HM decided she would not give an audience to as she didn't approve the appointment. An over-promoted civil servant, appointed for political reasons, IMHO.

Saying that the Speaker is doing a surprisingly poor jig as he tries to get himself out of the poo. Knowing what he did, he should be carrying the can.

What go around come around i suspect that micks decision to bump years of tradition and appoint for political reasons someone who would not make a fuss is certainly going to come back and bite him big time.

mwahahahaha...She looked a real happy bunny NOT during the state opening.

I don't know the lady and would not be surprised if she continues in post longer than the present Speaker, Mr Martin. However, it is difficult to imagine previous (ex-military) Sergeants at Arms rolling over so unquestioningly.

You truly don't don't believe they would? Really? I bet they do what ever some civil service suit or politician tells them to do (it's the one reason why any of them get the job in the first place) and if they are told by some guy 'Hi I'm from counter-terrorism ...' I bet they roll over, obey and think about the implications for democratic politics ... er ... never.

She (the Serjeant-at-arms) is going to be shafted over this and all because the Speaker is a gutless bastard.

The Speaker said, (roughly) 'When I was told the police may search an MPs office, she (the Serjeant-at-Arms) never told me they didn't have a warrant'. Do you really think he never sought to find out if they did? And if he did not, is he really the person who should be Speaker? And I cannot believe the Home Sec knew an MPs house was about to be searched by CT yet not know whose house it was going to be!

THis is all " Smoke and mirrors" the stupid bird is going to be the scapegoat, and if you believe one member of the government about this you must be dense. just watch the body language, and eyes, their all lying or there is a hell of an eye infection going round

Considering that Gorbals mick is an ex-working class Glaswegian and of an age to have watched "The Sweeney" You'd have thought that the exchange should have been,

Serjeant at Arms "Mr Speaker, the Police are outside"

Mr Speaker "The polis you say? Has youse got a warrant copper? No? Then away with you before I put the heed on youse!"

Maybe living down south has made him soft.

you are f*king joking right?? I can really see someone like Grant Peterkin being really impressed by a couple of "CT polis" - NOT. get a grip ya numpty! the whole point of ex seniors being given the post as they have seen a fair bit of life in all its nasty colours and are not impressed by jump up little scrots trying to impress them. they also have a tendency to act like adults and know how to take responsiblity.

Misfortune to watch George Galloway on CH5 this morning his view was that the senior person should shoulder the responsibility and resign.
The police pulled a fast one, the Speaker is now trying to keep the wolves at bay. :? Mind you the whole immigration policy is iffy so will wait and see.

Speakers local bookies had rather good odds on his not resigning though :roll: :roll:
