We all know, let's be very frank about this, who's the real leader round here, don't we?
just you mark my words.
Madam Diane Abbott, a senior Labour front bencher, handed the upcoming by-election to Mr Nutter, on the proverbial plate.
Whilst agreeing in theory that people had voted to leave the European Union, Madam Abbott said that she respected the vote, obviously she did, hers was a party of democracy and the rule of law, which is why they do so much vote-rigging, torture, money-laundering, blackmail and war crime but the very clear facts of the matter were that Britain could only leave the EU by remaining in it;
the best way to affect the change so clearly voted for by the electorate was to keep things exactly the same.
We can leave the EU, if that's what people really want, because they are stupid, but only if we stay in the Single Market, in the Customs Union, subject to the European Court of Justice, and acquiescing to unlimited immigration from any old made-up fantasy nation which, five minutes ago, was a horse-drawn economy, as long as these conditions remain in force, Madam Abbott was content to let us leave the EU.
Mrs Askey's stated aim, continued Madam Abbott, of doing as instructed by the electorate, was muddle-headed and entirely mistaken and as for a trade deal with the USA, well, Andrew, this simply could not happen because Mr Trump was not in any position to make deals because he is not the President.
Thanks big lass,
Yeah, thanks big lass, bang-on,
dead chuffed, me, over the moon.
(sings: wa-a-alk on, wa-a-alk o-o-o-o-on,
Honestly, Andrew, it's like that chap, ishmael, was saying, the other day: it is entirely proper and truly socialist, in fact it is the essence of democratic socialism - which, I may say, the British people are cying-out for, to me and Jeremy Corbyn and some of my junior colleagues - for me to send my darling son to private school, far away from my constituents, otherwise it might prove difficult for him to inherit the family business from me, you know what they say, Andrew, familiarity breeds contempt, and let's face it, Andrew, when it comes to my constituents there's a lot to feel contempt about, isn't there, I mean, I know how you despise poor people, too, and live in France to avoid them. But no, mr ishmael was one hundred per cent correct, if everyone was to receive a good, expensive education, what would be the point of that, where would be the advantage for rich people, like myself and our precious children?
And quite frankly Andrew, theres' no point in you trying to catch me out on leaving the EU, I have stated the position of my party and myself quite clearly and you must just accept it: the only conceivable way for us to leave and do right by the electorate is to stay in.
I used to say about Snotty that seeing someone make a fool of themself is not a pleasant experience, anyone can do it - a slip of the tongue, an unguarded remark, a contradiction, an inconsistency, a Freudian slip, it is easily done. Snotty's blunders, however, derived from a monstrous ego, a vast and groundless intellectual conceit and an unwholesome, dangerous megalomania - instilled, in my opinion, by his batshit crazy Presbyterian parents; from the certainty that he and he alone knew the sol-you-shun, that he alone divined the right thing for the country; Snotty, waving his rusty moral compass, was the flame-keeper of I-Know-Bestism.
And so it is with Abbott, one wants, has always wanted, to give her the benefit of the doubt; she was the first black female MP, but like the abominable Oily Vaz - the first Labour Asian MP - she has milked that distinction and wholly devalued it; she is a lone parent but it has not ennobled her, for she is a greedy snob; she has defied the monstrous Blair, yet grows more like him every day.
To see anyone make such a public hash of themselves as she did, today, ought to invite sympathy or compassion but her arrogance is breathtaking, her stupidity astounding and her assurance that she can bamboozle those who employ her together invite only contempt.
There has been no shortage of Abbott gaffes, this one, however, is titanic and unforgiveable.
Corbyn should sack her and the voters should pelt her with rotten eggs and bags of dog-shit.
The self-proclaimed parliamentary standard-bearer of the Left,
good for fuck all.
