1:19 pm today was the exact mid point from when the result that the Great British public had decided to leave the EU and the time 11pm March 29th 2019 that Democracy will be delivered.

Happy days.

Now I am not a fan of Corbyn in the slightest, but whether it's "people" or "woman", I don't really see the issue here. It's odd that the actual slur of being called "stupid" is overlooked in another bout of outrage olympics. Also, for me, surely "people" would be worse than "woman" as it targets more than one person,

I'm assuming May "identifies" as a woman, and her recent performance has definitely raised questions about her cognition.

Be interesting to see, if he did say "woman", how Abbott reacts after her recent call for tightening of rules on "misogyny" on some platforms.


indeed, only last week Theresa May confirmed she is in fact a woman.


As for "stupid" the tories are not disputing that, you can add it to "bloody difficult" and "nebulous"

The Commons was at its most embarrassing today. We’re three months away from the biggest change in this country for generations and they spent two hours arguing about the nature of a fairly lame insult.

For what it’s worth they had two lip readers on 5Live earlier, one of whom saw “woman” while the other saw “people”. Only Corbyn and those in the immediate vicinity actually know what he said. Personally, I don’t give a shit. There are way bigger issues facing parliament and the country. The faux outrage from the famously inclusive amd progressive Tory backbenches was a true sight to behold, mind you.


Totally agree with you. Just seen it on the news and the whole episode was embarrassing, Theresa May making a pigs ear of one panto lines, the Tory MP’s outrage /swearing blind they knew what he’d said and interactions with the speaker and then we have Corbyn uttering the word stupid.......what he needed to do was get on the front foot and take the tories to task, but that appears beyond him!

Talk about portraying ourselves in a positive light on the world stage...What the heck do leaders of other countries think when they see these shenanigans, they must think we’re Muldoon and there for the taking.

It’s all doom and gloom out there at the moment and there are lots of bad news stories in the press about a no deal Brexit, it may be Project Fear but if it isn’t and these events/issues pan out we are going to be in big trouble. TM and her government need to get a grip.

Forensic lip-reader Jessica Rees told the Mirror: "It’s very clear if you lipread him he’s saying “stupid people”. Even if someone who's day job is to lipread hadn't said that. I'd trust my judgement on this. Try saying the word "woman" without pursing your lips. Not possible. And Corbyn doesn't purse his lips.


The Daily Mirror is your clue here.

People starts with a p - a plosive. There’s no way he said people.

Should have fessed up and apologised rather than lie about it.

Clearly a job for a lip reader.


Does anybody who strives to make ends meet in the real world freighted with real worries give a flying feck about this nonsense?

I mean, honestly now FFS!, mun!? He could have showed her his wrinkly old John Thomas and sang Moon River across the Despatch Box at her and I’d still have to get up the same time tomorrow, I’d still have to call for petrol on the way in.

I’m developing a genuine loathing for the whole pantomime, for everything they are and all they represent, all of them. Quite frankly they disgust me.

An idea isn't responsible for those who believe in it.

Hear hear

Whilst I’m inclined to blame the Conservative party for deliberately distracting parliament with this yesterday, Labour would have done exactly the same had the shoe been on the other foot.

I'm sure all the rough sleepers are absolutely up in arms about it.

She got off lightly as far as I'm aware. If he'd said 'Lying arms hawking psychopath' it would have been far less misogynistic and ambiguous.

Or he could have said it in Rene from 'Allo 'Allo's accent, at least that would have brought a bit of comedy to the proceedings...

And this just a week after two Conservative MP's who had been suspended from the party due to allegations of sexual misconduct are reinstated, coincidentally of course, just in time for the vote on TM's leadership.

I wonder which way they voted.

I'm not a lip reader but, to me it looks like he said people. But, for God's sake, who really cares when stuff like the above happens.

In an attempt to take a small positive from the whole nonsense, it is heartening to see such a huge percentage of posters here (of vastly differing political views) agree that this whole incident highlights how pathetic most of our politicians are. If that is repeated across the country, perhaps the situation could change for the better in the future.

Although it brings me back down when I struggle to think who or what that alternative could be.

You know, Hobbes, some days even my lucky rocket ship underpants don't help.

Agree, the challenge of Brexit has proved just how incapable they all are. We need a different way of selecting people for election as MPs.

P is a plosive, but W requires near lip closure too. I have studied phonology in some detail and I watched and rewatched the footage over and over yesterday, at normal speed and slowed down. I initially thought that the the /i/ sound in 'people' would be the giveaway, but you can, as I believe Corbyn did, utter the word without much widening of the mouth. Hence I think it is impossible to say with certainty whether he said 'woman' or 'people'.

Why aren't people more outraged at Philip Hammond's 'stupid woman' remark?

Or, more to the point, why aren't people more expressing much greater outrage at the fact that politicians are wasting precious time arguing about this petty affair, rather than "getting on with the job" in a "strong and stable" manner?

I mean, of course, the job of trying to prevent the disaster of a no deal brexit.

Agree with you Loh.

Direct rule from Brussels seems the obvious solution to the shower of shite currently occupying the UK parliament.

He would have had respect if he was honest enough to admit what he said rather than try to lie himself out of it and get caught out like a little schoolboy.

He needs to grow a pair of balls rather than try lying himself out of situations which he has tried doing countless times but he always gets caught out and shown to be a cowardly liar.

No wonder he can’t lay a glove on May despite her current situation.

In all honesty Labour should be miles in front at this point, but they aren’t and if there’s a GE I think JC could end up with a bloody nose. The Tories are shocking, but once they have ditched TM as bad as they are they will be in pole position.

Yesterday’s antics in Parliament were shocking, none of the, are fit to govern.
