New Labour MP soon to be found "dead"

From Spoilt Ballot

"A disgrace to democracy in this country!" John McDonnell MP

Update from Douglas Carswell
I sit in the chamber watching a little drama unfold. It illustrates quite how monumentally useless our Parliament has become.

The government announces there will be a third runway at Heathrow. But there's to be no decision by those we elect. It'll be decided by the quangos.

A Labour MP, the chap for Hayes and Harlington, gets angry at the total inability to hold the decision-makers to account. As his anger grows, I see a man who seems to finally understand that he and the chamber in which he sits hold no purpose.

He snaps. He walks down, picks up the Mace and puts it aside. His dignity intact.

The Commons authorities, useless at ensuring the Commons does its job, are quick to expel him.

Unbelievably, as I walk out of the chamber I overhear two doormen talking to two police officers. The officers have presumably been sent to remove the unfortunate MP. Indeed, I hear one say "He's already left the Parliamentary estate ...". Phew. What a relief.

Ironic, isn't it. The Commons authorities are quick to expel from Parliament someone who represents their constituent’s views. They didn't seem to care who set foot "on the Parliamentary estate" when Damian Green's office was invaded without a warrant.

As I walk across Parliament Square, I notice how the band of protesters is now much larger than it was when I was first elected. I wonder why ....

UPDATE: Apparently the Sergeant at Arms - you know, the one that said "okay" when the police wanted to raid Damian Green's office - was apparently a little zealous trying to track down and remove the MP for Hayes and Harlington. My mole says she was seen in full regalia hunting for him down in the library. Where was that zeal before?

He won't be killed, he'll have a "Robin Cook" done to him - just another suicide.

Old Holborn said...

It will be the "stress" of course.

Poor thing.

Can you believe we are even discussing the assisted suicide of "dissidents"?

11 years of Zanulabour and it's worse than East Germany ever was.

John Smith
Robin Cook
David Kelly

Makes you wonder about that MP found "axphyxiated" while wanking with an orange or something. Wonder what he knew that they didn't like? Did he have THE photo?

As I've said elsewhere, a Labour MP with a pair of last.

Methinks this one will run and run.

As that total Hoon said it was a matter for the whole of the country, then why aren't the country's MPs being allowed to vote?

I have no sympathy.

MP's have become useless because they allowed themselves to be sidelined.

Even now, if they all got together, ignored the whips, and voted their consciences, things would have to change.

They could stop the third runway if they wanted to.

They could repeal the European Communities Act 1972 if they wanted to.

They still have the power.

They just choose not to use it.

Video no longer available at 15:28. Well that didn't take long.

The spineless cunts choose not to use that power because they are desperate to get their noses deeper into the trough, and that means they can't upset the Party or they'll just rot on the back benches. Still, it's £60,000 or so and all the expenses you can fiddle, they are just too fucking greedy.

Cut out ministerial salaries, ban the bastards from taking jobs with related industries etc for 10 years after they get kicked out, then we might see some "public service" from MP's.

Oh look, a whole fucking squadron of flying pigs....

How many of these scumbags after losing their seats have to sign on?
Well I reckon you can count the number on the fingers of one foot as in none.

Shirking From Home said...

I hope for more MPs making a stand against this fuckwit government and the control freak Westminster clitorati in general.

It won't happen of course.

Can I be the first to state on this blog that Geoff Hoon is a c*nt?

The TV coverage was a bit softpron wasn't it? What, no popshot?

it's either banned or compulsory said...

"He snaps. He walks down, picks up the Mace and puts it aside. "

Why didn't the BBC show us that bit ?

He says "disgrace to democracy", I say "sore loser", "drama queen", "attention seeker".

Some you win, this one he lost. Now let's see how much Greenpeace can cost the UK taxpayers while we condone their objections to R3 and T6.

Bring on the runwet, I say...

Stress yes. That's it. Just as "stress" was why a lawyer hunting down assets in the aftermath of the credit crunch kills herself over stress.

Where was that zeal previously ?
