I look forward to the almost certain defeat of liarbore in the next few months when this by-election is held.

Enjoy it while you can,Cyclops-for within 2 years you will be history.

Hopefully the Grim Reaper will be calling on more liarbore MPs in the near future.

What?!?! No RIP messages?!?! What's wrong with this forum nowadays?? ;)
It'll be RIP Labour I'm sure!

Condolences to MacDougall's friends and family naturally.

The things Labour MPs will do to avoid standing at the net General Election! Are we sure he wasn't seen paddling off in a canoe or down the beach a la Reggie Perrin?

IIRC Glenrothes is nowhere near as safe a Labour seat as Glasgow East used to be. Used to be. Mmmm, that's a delicious phrase. Let me just taste it again: It used to be a safe Labour seat.

Lovely.

Maybe when this one goes, and it will, Cyclops will not just take it as a mid-term 'blip' and take it as it will have been intended....... very very personally as a scream for him to FCUK OFF!!

The problem being that the only way you prise his grip from the leavers of power is by a vote of no confidence and I can't see that happening with the Liebour majority.

Lets face it that vote of no confidence could be traded for a lucrative MEP seat, what would you do ?

Indeed. So what we need is a Liarbor MP Dead Pool.

Anybody know a handy source of the ages of MP's?

60+ and male should be a good starting point. Obvious consumers of lard, deep fried mars bars and those overly fond of the bottle should tend to towards the top.

I am looking forward to Brown watching his vote vapourise in the constituency that is right next door to his.

Re vote of confidence, There are enough Labour MP's who can see that an election this year may return them to Westminster, albeit in opposition. Most of them know that in 2 years time their chances of being returned will be considerably diminished, maybe returned to Westminster, but probably as the 3rd party.

If a confidence vote is tabled, there is a chance that some Labour MP's just may vote with the oppostion and get this god awful government out of office. Self preservation is a wonderful instinct, particularly when they may be permanently parted from the trough!

Unlucky mate

after

"John MacDougall gave more than thirty years of distinguished public service to Fife - as a councillor, leader of the Fife council, convenor of Fife council and then Member of Parliament for Central Fife and he will be remembered as a true servant of the people".
I presume he had a proper job in his early years and was exposed to asbestos then.

I am sure that the John Lewis list will have suitable gifts on it for his fellow MPs to buy from to show their sympathy.

RIP, old lefty politico.

You will be sorely missed. By Cyclops.


I think I have some asbestos in my eye...









That good enough for you, Smudge67?

Mr MacDougall was born in Dunfermline and worked as a boilermaker and a union shop steward, before being elected to the council.

They'll do all they can to delay the by-election, and they'll get all the top brass of Zanu-NL up there, and if there's any decency in the world, they'll lose.

Broon will then face a huge back-bench rebellion, and it'll be touch-and-go if he stays. If he goes then Dave will have all the ammunition he needs to insist on an election, but I think it could turn very ugly. It may be better for Dave if Broon stays, as he'll be terminally wounded.

Expect some fireworks. I'll be the one selling tin-hats on Ebay.

Fascinating. On a human level, condolences to Mr MacDougall's widow and family, of course, but what a political kick in the goolies for Gordon! The very last thing he'll want is another hammering at the polls as soon as MPs return from their 'well-earned' 40-week holiday, or whatever it is, as he knows that could be Endex for him personally. Zanu NL's annual conference starts on 20 Sep - could they be forced to hold a by-election before then? Is there any time limit following the death of an incumbent? Does anybody know the 'constitutional' position?

I trust a 10,000+ majority disappearing into thin air will be met with the same out of touch ignorance and bluster from all aboard the accursed HMS Cyclops' Misadventure. Despite being beached in unfriendly territory, surround by massed hordes of savages baying for their blood, mutiny on the Bounty being the order of the day and no survival options in sight, still these arrogant tw*ts deny there anything wrong. Cyclops desperately needs acceptance and something that will save him from being a foul and dirty smudge in the history books, but all he is doing is prolonging the agony and heightening our morbid amusement at his 5hitty leadership. Rock on the landslide defeat in the by-election.
