    But he was on a television show. I mean a television show. You can do anything on a television show. It’s not serious stuff we’re talking. It’s television. Entertainment. Where the lies of Russell Brand thrive.

    “Look at me- I’m mad, me”.

    yes, but not in the way you think.

    Horrible, horrible, horrible.

    Oh Don’t. Theresa May will be turning up in the Houses Of Commons in a Leopardskin one next…..

    I hope he didn’t get nervous beforehand and end up doing a twosie in his onesie.

    It should be pointed out that Mr Shelbrooke is a Conservative MP. If this is what is required for the Conservative party to get its policies across, then Mr Cameron is deep in the brown stuff.

      Fatuous and desperate.

      He is ‘aiming to raise £5,000 for the Good Night’s Sleep appeal and Martin House’, a Children’s Hospice

      Galloway could only manage a pussy-cat.

    Just sums up our infantile and infantilised political class. The grown ups are all gone and our country is in the hands of the children.

      Uh-Huh, but Andrew Neil always wanted to be a ‘show-biz Sleb’, so he would have loved it.
