Who'd Be a Young Tory on MySpace?

Tom Watson alerts me to an hilarious parliamentary exchange on the poor lad I mentioned HERE. It's reported on Labour MP Paul Flynn's website HERE.

NOTE: If readers would like to alert me of notable parliamentary exchanges from Hansard, please email me...

Paul Flynn's website is commendable.

Perhaps he could be persuaded onto Doughty Street to give a view on the Welsh Road Signs !!

Really very, very funny. Got to give NuLab their due, that "poverty of ambition" line was class.

So this young Tory is a 'Rogers Tone' councillor.

I never knew that young Tories got so close to our illustrious leader. Or perhaps, then again, I did?

poverty of ambition was quite funny but overall I suspect the humour of the exchange loses something in being written down - as to me Paul FLynn sounds like a mean spirited dickhead

"as to me Paul FLynn sounds like a mean spirited dickhead"

You mean because he pointed out that this cretin made a twat of himself? The Tories can do without bozos like that. I don't know anybody who thinks that shoplifting is remotely "cool" or impressive.

Shoplifting? - boring!
Mind you, "wreck-ups" sound like a jolly good jape. Is this young lad a member of the Bullingdon Club?

This saddo's drug taking was presription drugs and his thieving was some sweets from his cousin. presumably he was trying to identify 'wiv da yoof'.

FFS he's a youth himself and an obvious misfit in his own right.

Should do well in Politics though.

Incidentally, Paul Flynn's not all bad. He supports the use of cannabis for the relief of pain and discomfort caused by medical conditions. Where's the Rizla, I feel a twinge coming on.

Dear Lord these socialists have a sense of humour failure -or is it a necessary requirement for joining the party?

Whoops! Facebook is much better than Myspace.

Paul Flynn is an icon.

Please - the guy's a teenager, and as is the wont of such people, he sometimes has poor judgement and has made a prat of himself. We've all done pretty stupid things in our time - but his is the first generation with the technological tools to broadcast his idiocy worldwide.

It'll be a learning experience for him...

"Whoops! Facebook is much better than Myspace."

Seconded. Myspace is for teenage stalkers. Admittedly I do have a page but I never use it now most people I know are on Facebook.

When did the guy get elected if he is 19? I thought the rules had only just changed??
