Classic Dennis Skinner one liners

He’s got the best attendance and the lowest expenses in Parliament; he never accepts drinks off journalists and has been thrown out of Parliament on more than 10 occasions. In honour of Dennis skinner, we run down some of his best quotes.

1) On The Tory Party

Half the Tory members opposite are crooks.
He was then told to withdraw the remark.
OK, half the Tory members aren’t crooks.

2) To Roy Jenkins, Who Pronounced His Rs as Ws

Roy: I leave this party without rancour
Dennis: I thought you were taking Marquand with you

3) On George Osborne

Is my right hon. Friend aware that in the 1970s and a lot of the 1980s, we would have thanked our lucky stars in the coalfield areas for growth of 1.75 per cent.? The only thing growing then were the lines of coke in front of boy George and the rest of them.

4)To Black Rod

Black Rod
Every year at the state opening of Parliament Black Rod is sent on behalf of the Queen to request that MPs come through to the House of Lords. Dennis Skinner’s remarks have become part of this tradition too.
  • 1987 “Tell her to sell up” – a reference to how the Queen could help the recession.
  • 1988 “Hey up, Here comes Puss In Boots!”
  • 1990 “I bet he drinks Carling Black Label.”
  • 1992 “Tell her to pay her taxes!”
  • 2000 “Tell her to read the Guardian!” – at the time The Guardian was running a republican campaign.
  • 2005 “Has she brought Camilla with her?”
  • 2006 “Have you got Helen Mirren on standby?”
  • 2008 “Any Tory moles at the Palace?”
  • 2009 “Royal Expenses are on the way.” – after the MPs’ expenses scandal
  • 2013 “Royal Mail for sale. Queen’s head privatised.”

5) On Jeremy Hunt When His Special Advisor “Resigned”

Jeremy Hunt
When posh boys are in trouble they sack the servants

6) On Cameron

David Cameron
(E)very now and then you see the arrogance of Cameron, and that comes through every so often. It is the Bullingdon Club. When they were sat down, him and Gideon, and he says: ‘You know what we really want, Gideon? Every weekend, after we’ve roughed up one of those hotels, we need an army of volunteers to come in and clean it all up.’ And Gideon says: ‘Yeah, we could call it the Big Society’
He’s also taken to calling him “Dodgy Dave”

7) On The House Of Lords

House of Lords
Tell the House of Lords to go to hell.

8) On Norman Tebbit

Norma Tebbit
He’s lining his pockets
This is an important quote as Skinner said what nobody else would in regard to Tebbit being given a non-exec position at privatised BT.

9) On Calling an MP A Pompous Sod

Dennis Skinner quotes
Speaker: You had better withdraw that
Skinner: I withdraw the word pompous
Speaker: That’s not the word I’m looking for
Skinner: I can’t withdraw both

UK Lord Justice wanted age of consent lowered to the age of 4

Lord Justice Fulford was named last year as an adviser to the QueenHe was a key backer of the notorious Paedophile Information Exchange Police suspect the group of abusing children on an ‘industrial scale’He is revealed as a founder member of campaign to defend PIEAt the time it was calling for the age of consent to be lowered to just fourI clashed with Paedophile Information Exchange (PIE) global leaders at the Wales conference in Swansea in 1977. Tom O’Carroll is still accepted and active on a sexnet chat group of experts in “sexology” although he writes openly as a pedophile. And the scholarly organizers of the Swansea conference at the University were part of his efforts. Below a summary of my intro to him in my book, Stolen Honor, Stolen Innocence, 2013. This academic pedophile lobby has continued and grown, training second generation and third generation supporters as “scholars” for pedophile equality and “rights.” In 1981 I realized they were global.

Jews in Israel call for genocide of Palestinians in a massive rally ignored by the media

The West’s media—under orders to censor any news of Jewish supremacism—has refused to publicise this week’s massive hate rally attended by thousands of Jews in Tel Aviv which called for all Arabs to be killed. The Western media’s blackout is in marked contrast to their blanket coverage of the tiniest example of what it calls “white racism.” The Tel Aviv rally—organized to support an Israeli soldier who murdered a wounded Palestinian by shooting him in the head as the victim lay on his back—was marked by chants and banners calling for mass murder. The rally took place on Tuesday evening, April 19, in Tel Aviv’s Yitzhak Rabin Square, and the many thousands of Jews in the crowd were, according to reports in the Israeli media, baying for blood.
One Jewish reporter, Dan Cohen, tweeted that many in the crowd chanted, “Death to Arabs,” a frequently heard rallying cry at anti-Palestinian demonstrations. Ahmed Tibi, a Palestinian lawmaker in Israel’s parliament, posted an image of a sign displayed …

The elite's use young children's blood to live longer and so do I says Paypal Billionaire

Billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel said that he believes transfusions of blood from young people can reverse his ageing process and allow him to live a vastly extended lifespan.

In an interview with’s Jeff Bercovici, Thiel said that the practice — known as parabiosis — is the closest modern science has come to creating an anti-aging panacea.

Thiel — a hedge funder who acted as a delegate for Donald Trump and spoke at the 2016 Republican National Convention — is reportedly obsessed with defying death and extending the human lifespan. He has injected funds into startups that are experimenting with ways to forestall the body’s inevitable decline and death.

“I’m looking into parabiosis stuff,” Thiel told Bercovici, “where they [injected] the young blood into older mice and they found that had a massive rejuvenating effect. … I think there are a lot of these things that have been strangely underexplored.”

Parabiosis experiments began in the 1950s with crude exercises in which rats …
