Just heard this on PMQ, not exactly sure what happened, so I may have my facts wrong. I'm going to follow this one

Can I come over here please? I'm finding the AIBU one infuriating!

Didn't even bother looking at it.

The guardian link below references this thread in case anyone is interested.

he is showing his true colours when he said that Britain should stop being a multi-cultural society (is this the way Tory way of saying 'go home you foreigners?'). then, he comes out with this patronising comment. he doesn't like women, the poor or people of different colour very much does he? totally agree with the swearing on here.

erm... here, here!!

He really is a pompous and arrogant man.

Idiot. If he had half a brain, he'd apologise and get on with his life instead of pretending it didn't pop into his head purely because he was saying it to a woman.

It is disgusting, but it helps to bring out to the open that this government is so anti female.

I mean is there really anyone who didn't KNOW he was a twit before the election? Was he so believable? I don't even think he tried that hard to pretend otherwise but God, people certainly fell for it.

I will never understand why people vote in these bastards and then are surprised when they show who they really are. Not that I'm assuming many people on this thread did vote for him...

I suspect that this will come back to bite him on the arse if he doesn't apologise to her.

All he has to do is say it was a thoughtless heat of the moment comment and that he understands the sexist undertones and blah blah blah. Not too difficult surely? Although of course in order to do so he would have to admit that he made an error and gracefully thank her for pointing that out - that would probably stick in his throat a bit.

I posted this on the AIBU thread - some comments from Ms Eagle.

Am LOVING Harriet Harman's facial expression at 1min11secs in.

It just say it all really. "Hamshine you truly are a knobend and showing yourself up no end."
