  4. 'Yes, Prime Minister, I know it looks like snakes 'n ladders but there wasn't enough room on the shield for an Uckers Board.'
  5. "I know the power of the Speaker has diminished of late but I rather feel that the inclusion of castration equipment and detached sliced balls is going a bit far"
  6. All in it together.

    Is it me or does the portrait of John Bercow bear more than a passing resemblance to Yoda?
  8. He's a tw4t and she would get it

    Next ...
  9. Inasmuch as one 'acts a part' whilst the other attempts to 'part the acts'.

    (Their shared challenge of verticality also springs to mind.)
  10. What a self opiniated prick he is, a true oxygen thief !!

    Speaker John Bercow coat of arms: The vulgar truth about family crests | Mail Online

    <<...today’s heralds must surely smile to themselves as they draw up coats of arms for the show-offs and showbiz personalities, the shady businesspeople and vainglorious politicians who today apply for the honour.

    But the heralds are too polite to let their amusement show, and what they made of Bercow’s desire for a shield which was decorated with balls, we shall never know...>>

    Thread Title Amendment No.1.

    Delete "£37k", Insert "£44k". The reasons for this amendment are stated below.


    <<...When John Bercow unveiled his £37,000 official portrait complete with his personal coat of arms earlier this week he was roundly mocked for wasting taxpayers’ money...

    ...But yesterday he faced further embarrassment after admitting that the coat of arms cost even more.

    One extra bill of £5,400 was for the patent and design of the coat of arms by the College of Arms,

    while an additional charge of £1,600 was for “preparation of the panelled area for the coat of arms to be displayed”, a spokesman for the Speaker said.

    The “error” arose because the extra costs “came from other budgets”.

    From an impeccable source it is understood that the artist has made a buckshee offer to re-paint the Speaker's cheeks with a distinct blush of embarassment but Mr. Bercow has yet to reply.

    Could be the new animated version of a figure 11.
