  1. Great mmugshot for a Broadmore inmate.

    I think Matthew Parris is actually a former Tory MP. He packed it in in 1986… Or is there another one?

    1. Yes, he was an MP.

      He was one of the first MPs to ‘out’ himself (as opposed to being outed by others).

      He’s done a fantastic amount to support gay rights.

  3. Whenever I hear the term “swivel-eyed loons” I think of Peter Bone.

      You beat me to it. There is a disturbing mania to his expression I’ve only seen achieved by the likes of Nicholas Cage, but then he was acting. Terrifying.

      1. Ha! I saw the film Face/Off recently on TV and sure enough Nichals Cage’s character had that exact same expression.

        People like Bone are an embarassment to the Tory party and the fact that he and Norman Tebbit seem to be popular with the Mail crowd speaks volumes about their readership. I think that’s the reason these people have such strong support for UKIP, it’s the last thing they have to cling to and their recent success has sent them into a frenzied right wing circle jerk.

        1. *Nicholas Cage. I’m still getting used to touchscreen.

    So perhaps he’d like a referendum to disestablish the CoE and HoL? If not, why not?
