Answer the fucking question!

I was previously unaware of the fucking egregious Jackie Baillie, and I am not going to thank The Daily Brute for introducing me to the fat, obfuscating bitch. However, I defy you to watch this video without screaming, "answer the fucking question!"


Jackie Baillie is answering questions on the illegal donations given to the poor little Greek boy's paramour and seems to believe the following erroneous ideas:
  • If you have broken the law unintentionally, then it's not really law-breaking,

  • information given to the Electoral Commission should be considered as being sub judice,

  • that Jackie Baillie is, in some way, the most important person in the room,

  • that simply praising Wendy is some substitute for answering pertinent questions,

  • that because Jackie doesn't know anyone who thinks that Wendy is dishonest (I do, Jackie), then she cannot possibly be dishonest.

Ugh. What a repulsive woman. I believe that the best treatment for her would be that which the Faerie Queen threatened to mete out to Tamlyn.
  1. Then the Queen of the Elvens, now she cursed yon Tam-a-Lyn
    Oh, well she cursed him good
    She said, "I should have torn out your eyes young Tam-a-Lyn
    I should have put in two eyes of wood, of wood
    I should have put in two eyes of wood."


  2. "And it's curses on you, Tam-a-Lyn," she says
    "You once was my very own.
    And when you was, I should have torn out your heart
    And put in a heart of stone, cold stone
    I should have put in a heart of stone."

Although, looking at Jackie, I suspect that the direst threat that I could issue her with would be to enroll her in Weightwatchers...

Jackie Baillie needs a party hat.

I fear the hambeast may have an eat attack.

She's not fat - she's full of shit.

She's going to make a hell of a mess when I impale her.

If you listen closely at about 3.28 she tries to imply that "Glen" has known Wendy Alexander for years and he knows she isn't a crook. Fucking cheek!

Credit to him though, he doesn't let her get away with that, although it's fucking moot anyway as she wouldn't ask the question.

What it shows, as usual; Labour, Tory or Lib Dem, they treat firstly the law and secondly the electorate with utter fucking contempt. They don't even believe they should have to answer the questions in the first place or that the law even applies to them.

Since when did ignorance become a get out clause - since politicians and those who police them have decided they're all on the same gravy train.

I see the Conway fiasco has neatly been sidelined and they can't prosecute him because the procedures for accounting for work are so bloody piss-poor they don't have anything to Benchmark against. They can't even tell the fiddles are fiddles. Inspector Knacker strikes again.

On the latest polling Labour are fucked in Scotland anyway, I hope they all lose their seats, the mendacious fucking cunts.

2nd Para: I meant of course, she wouldn't answer the question.

Lets be fair though guys, it was an Impressive display of Bullshit. She carefully played the time game, and did it, in all honesty, very well.

That isn't to say I would consider an eternity of pain for her an injustice.

Well possibly too light in sentencing, call me Ming the Merciful....

Daniel said...

@Alec, absolutely right. Impressive indeed. How they manage to sit there with a straight face when spouting their claptrap is beyond me. Even Dick Turpin wore a mask.

I think you are playing into her hands by making a cheap, snide, personal remark about her weight which can only achieve the impossible task of making certain people feel a bit of residual sympathy for her.

I am not convinced by your insinuation that her handling of the interview lacks confidence and competence.

It has all the hallmarks of the New Labour media training playbook.

* Simply insisting on carrying on with the old 'well if you've invited me on, you have to let me answer the question in my own way'

* Repeating the 'line to take' again and again, like a 'broken record' in the hope of wearing down the interviewer into going for an other angle when the producer screams in their ear about the sands of time falling through the hour glass.

* Failing to address the point being raised by the interviewer. The letter to the donor, and the sourcing of the other donation was simply not answered at all.

* Answering a different question.
Although she did fail to use that classic line 'But first let me just say..', maybe to try and avoid flagging it up too obviously..

* The classic Patronising Patricia Hewitt 'If you'll just let me finish' play, to achieve the near impossibility of making it seem like it is the interviewer being unreasonable.

* Not losing her cool. She did look very rattled at one point, and was clearly getting 'hot under the collar' and getting red in the face, but she squeaked through to the end without blowing her fuse.

DK where on earth did you dig up that impossibly obscure bit of verse ? Not Spenser’s faerie Queen , not Marlowe`s Tamburlaine oh no ...some unknown Morris dancing accompaniment that you must be the only person in the solar system to have heard of …Was it your party piece a nipper or did you perhaps get a prize for memorising it when you were but a fag?

We should be told .

I first came across Tam Lin because my mother was a fan of Fairport Convention, who did a version of Tam Lin on their album, Of Liege and Lief.

Jackie Baillie has obviously misunderstood Marianne Faithfull's Mars Bar recipe.

I'd like to know how she could afford all that food.

"...my mother was a fan of Fairport Convention,"

Such a very great deal explained in so few words.

For fucks sake DK...that fat munter is nothing!!!

Just for you I've dug out my url of Rhodri Morgan refusing to answer a question Iraq on Question Time when it was in Wales.

Now THAT is what you call a Labour cunt refusing to answer a question, and the best example I've ever seen...you've got to see to believe it.

Click on watch video link, it's amazing.

Fairport Convention were the first band I ever saw live! It was at the Marlowe theatre in Canterbury and I must say I enjoyed it immensely. Despite, at the time, publicly declaring a love of all things metal.
