    I wonder how interesting this is going to get. The big poo potential here is huge and getting bigger...I think May was hoping to tickle his vanity and flatter him as probably our best chance of a good trade deal but if so it has spectacularly backfired. Did Bercow speak from his heart, not his brain? Or is he asserting Parliament against the Government?

    That's been his declared aim throughout his period as speaker, and pretty much what he did as an opposition back-bencher before then.

    Compared with George Martin it's like watching the Archangel Michael take charge after an over-promoted jobsworth whose skills more closely suited the role of a particularly stroppy ticket inspector on a Central London bus route.

    The watch of your vision has become reasonable today.

    It’s normal. You must provoke. You must insult the belief of all monotheists. You must make fun of the belief of all monotheists.

    Kaboom. Metaphorically speaking.

    Have you noticed how mean Trump looks in that picture in The Independent.............
    Donald Trump's tweet about Kate Middleton's topless photos could make state visit with Queen very awkward | The Independent

    He looks as if he could be a mass murderer ? I certainly wouldn't trust anything about that person, he sends shivers down my spine ! I sincerely hope that he is not afforded the friendliness from this country's leaders, that they have afforded his various predecessors. I do not trust him. Sorry if I have upset any pro-Trumpites, but that is how I feel !

    Ouitside of europe after the usa scotland is england's bggest export market you' think she would be more careful not to piss us off.

    Westminster does seem to have problem with female scots mp's in particular.


    Joanna Cherry's treatment in Commons highlights "contempt in which Scotland is held at Westminster", says MP (From The National)

    Kirsty Strickland: A male MP woofed at Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh ... guess how the Westminster old boys' club responded? (From The National)

    I don't think it says anything about Scotland, just a lot about Soames.

    Her being scots is secondary to the point I ws trying to make it's the fact they were both female one told to shut up and the other woofed at. What on earth does that mean, yapping dog, bitch whatever way you look at it it's mysoginistic

    That's Nicholas Soames for you. The least savoury Conservative in the House of Commons since his syphilitic great-grandfather.
