It Shouldn't Happen to a Government Car Driver

This is Australian Labour MP Kelly Hoare, age 43. She is undergoing counselling after allegedly asked a government car driver whilst being chauffeured to her Sydney home, "Why don't you come in and fuck me". The psychological state of the driver is unknown.

Hattip to Kiwiblog.

Oh Dear. Can you imagine somebody saying that Margaret? Is that going too far?

canvas said...

Are you sure that she is 43 years old??!!! No way. LoL

ian said...

I would imagine that a mirror would have the answer to that question.

I'm sure there's a module in the defensive driving course to deal with such a request!

Can you Imagine Anne Widdecombe doing that?
Nor can I !

She should try asking men in Africa - they tend to be W/E and in need of a bob or two...

And a passport wouldn't go amiss, either!

Anonymous said...

She looks a bit startled. Maybe the driver said yes.

Is that really her surname?

And her party is likely to be in power after the next election in Oz? Not anymore!

If she leaves it a while for a period of mourning, the husband of Rose the Sudanese goat might just take up her offer...

Looks as though she met her nemesis...which, thanks to nulab's surveillance state is what all of us in England will be meeting more often soon, once Blair's astraea project - robotic drones which will police us from he sky - is operational.

Astraea - Greek Godess of Justice, identified with Nemesis.

NEMESIS was the goddess of indignation against, and retribution for, evil deeds and undeserved good fortune. She was a personification of the resentment aroused in men by those who commited crimes with apparent impunity, or who had inordinate good fortune.

Nemesis directed human affairs in such a way as to maintain equilibrium. Her name means she who distributes or deals out. Happiness and unhappiness were measured out by her, care being taken that happiness was not too frequent or too excessive. If this happened, Nemesis could bring about losses and suffering.

As one who checked extravagant favours by Tykhe (Fortune), Nemesis was regarded as an avenging or punishing divinity.

Nemesis was often sometimes depicted as a winged goddess. Her attributes were apple-branch, rein, lash, sword, or balance.

Why are the Conservatives sitting back and allowing this abomination to be foisted on England?

What an appropriate name.

The Splund said...

Are arrangements being made to contribute to a collection, to help pay for the driver's therapy? The Splund would be good for a few guineas.

PHWOOAR!

Can I just say that one more time:

Robotic drones (UAVs) which can fly at 100 miles an hour - a £32 million nulab project, code named Astraea.

Astraea: Greek Goddess of justice identifed with Nemesis - winged avenging or punishing divinity.

They may be fitted with face recognition technology. Liverpool police have expressed interest in them to hover over problem estates.

Simon Jewell, Chair of the Asrtraea steering board is quoted in Sunday Telegraph as stating:

"It will be a challenge to evolve people's thinking..."

Pavlov's dogs conditioned by robot drones, eh?

NO, NO, NO, NO!

Perhaps she could be introduced to John Prescott - he'll have some free time in a few weeks!

Luke Akehurst said...

Surely she had only to stand for Labour in this country. Then she could guarantee to get f****d - by several thousand electors. We really should introduce her to John Prescott.

Newmania said...

There is someone for everyone Mr. Dale and I distressed to see you being so unkind .
I imagine Mr. Fred West thought he would never meet a soul mate but one night at the local disco ...
" So Rose ...what do you like to do then ?"


Which proves that love is all around and the world is a really nice place . I rate the old bird for trying anyway . She might have got a pity f*** ( ....and really is there any other kind ?)

Chris Paul said...

Wow "Luke" ...

Anyway Iain: How much of a misogynist would you have to be to repeat and relay that story?

Dick Turpin said...

Perhaps she aims to be the first Labour MP buried in a Y shaped coffin

Bless.

I didn't realise you were such a softie at heart, newmania.

Well, toughen up and start worrying about Blair-Broon's flying robot drones :)

Let this be a warning to female socialists.

This poor woman is 4 years younger then me and looks like my grandmother.

My advice would be, dont be a socialist ANYMORE, get yourselves a short skirt, put on some decent lippy and have as much fun with a rich Tory as possible, while you can still get an offer.

Or end up begging cab drivers for a pity shag.

YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED

"after allegedly asked" a government driver ...

"alleged" by whom?

The government driver?

Well, look who we have here, canvas from webcameron, the 'wee bit of a socialist'. Has to be that canvas, no one else I know of uses that 'LoL' expression.

You aren't going whine and demand that Iain restructures his whole blog to suit you as you do of DC on webcameron, are you canvas? It pees me off so much that I rarely look at webcameron now.

One other question, are you, as I've long suspected, really Steve Hilton?

No let this be a warning to us men that we dont look as young as we kid ourselves when stood in front of a tinted mirror sucking our bellies in.
And chances are that when that 25 year old returns your smile it is either through fear or pity on her mind , not lust.

verity said...

This lady's government driver made an allegation and the mysogynists were all over it like a vomited Mars Bar.

I think I'm the only woman on this thread, and I would love it if HG or Bel were here - or any other lady - but do all you flatulent men with spare tyres around your waists and fat tummies and fat bums from sitting too many hours in front of the computer, plus computer shoulder stoop really think you will ever get lucky enough to reject any woman?

Alexander Drake said...

It's not the only thing Kelly's been caught doing:

http://www.news.com.au/story/0,23599,21682639-2,00.html

She has just been deselected from her (hereditary) safe Labor seat of Charlton. Prior to succeeding her father as an MP, she worked on his staff.

It always makes me laugh to see republicans in the Federal Parliament, as half of them are there as part of a 'bunyip aristocracy', a kind of hereditary peerage.

judith said...

Verity, as you can see from my name - Judith - I'm a woman, and I posted much earlier than you.

Doesn't mean I can't laugh at silly women in the way I'd laugh at silly men.

Anonymous said...

Can I be the first person to suggest that, looking at her photo:

(1) She looks like a bloke.

(2) She dresses like a bloke.

Trumpeter Lanfried said...

verity, you are too unkind. And at 1.09 AM you ought to be in bed.

wrinkled weasel said...

You see, its not fair. If the woman concerned is an old boot its "abuse", but if it was Theresa Villiers or Caroline Spelman it would be your lucky day!

Hardly fair on the 90 per cent of female MPs who are lezzers or ugly or strident just ugly strident lezzers, is it?

neil craig said...

A gentleman doesn't discuss such things.

Great story. One of your finest Iain.

Wrinkled Weasel - I've met the member for Barnet. Bit too masculine for me. Still one man's meat.

Newmania said...

VERITY SAID-plus computer shoulder stoop really think you will ever get lucky enough to reject any woman?


Not outright reject Verity I imply with infinite delicacy that 'we musn`t' sully a meeting mind and soul with low physicality. Its pretty to watch the disappointment fade from their faces to be replaced with almost sacred purpose. So many …so many faces ..like a rose petals on a dark wet bough .I tell you this sexual magnetism is a curse . No doubt you are yourself adept in the exquisite arts of flirtation and keep a string of beaus tap dancing like a 1930s chorus line . I can think of another strong minded woman who famously played her suitors like a well tuned lute





“I am come amongst you at this time, not as for my recreation or sport, but being resolved, in the midst and heat of the battle, to live or die amongst you all; to lay down, for my God, and for my kingdom, and for my people, my honor and my blood, even the dust. I know I have but the body of a weak and feeble woman; but I have the heart of a king, and of a king of England, too; and think foul scorn that Parma or Spain, or any prince of Europe, should dare to invade the borders of my realms”


Re incarnation ?

Newmania said...

BTW Verity Auntie Flo is also posting who is another woman. So you are far from alone.

simon said...

I could imagine a male Lib Dem saying this here! But not if it was a woman driver:)

Graeme said...

I do think it's a bit sad that you can't get a bit tipsy and flirt with people you work with anymore (though Mr Keith says it's a bloody good thing since (1) no-one in their right mind would flirt with me anyway and (2) if I flirted with anyone else he would show me the literal meaning of "great clunking fist"). Is that enough non-PC sentiments in a single post to win a prize?

Judith is the only real woman on this site. Verity ain't got no hooters.

Savonarola said...

The driver who reported her is no doubt a 'modern man'. Bloody wimp. He should have told her to get f***** if he personally was not willing or able. Its all bloody Health and Safety these days.

wrinkled weasel said...

jeremy jacobs.. I take your point about the member for Chipping Barnet, but I like them big boned and intelligent.

Of course if it was Caroline Flint, I would run from the car screaming "rape"! just to piss her off.

verity said...

Judith, forgive me, I scrolled down and missed your post.

Newmania, I'm not entirely convinced that Auntie Flo' is a woman.

Trumpeter Lanfried says: "verity, you are too unkind. And at 1.09 AM you ought to be in bed."

Trumpeter, it's a great big world out there, and I live on the North American continent.

What a depressing way to start the week, watching Iain and the lads - no doubt Adonises all - putting the boot into a middle aged woman who, on the evidence of one photo, appears not to come up to their usual high standards.
Why not lay into the driver who dobbed her in, the pathetic and mean-spirited wretch?
According to the newspaper report, she has been accused of 'sexual harassment.' For one en passant chat-up line!
A doubly-depressing way to start the week.

Iain Dale said...

Just imagine if it had been a male mp to a female government driver.

verity said...

Iain - I assure you, most women would not have reported him. We are accustomed to comments like this and we are accustomed to shrugging them off and thinking, "Stupid jerk."

"Prior to succeeding her father as an MP, she worked on his staff."

As in "thy rod and thy staff they comfort me"?

Anonymous said...

You've got to sympathise with her -It's just global warming, causeing things to get very hot down under.

Now what was John Prescott's excuse for getting familiar with the staff (or asking the staff to get familiar with the staff? Or John Redwood's?

Holy mother of God, verity. I'm not only a woman I'm a half Irish, deaf, Harlow woman. Now who in their right mind would want to feign that?

What grounds do you have for this entirely irrational assumption? That I stood up to you, I suppose.

Or maybe this is your revenge for me calling you Winston Churchill? :)

Newmania said...

Worry not Flo , I think your gendre is not in question. Plenty here to make up a coven

verity said...

Auntie Flo' writes: "What grounds do you have for this entirely irrational assumption?"

I believe I said I was "not entirely convinced that Auntie Flo' is a woman." By what stretch of the rules of grammar do you define this as an "assumption"?

You mention that you're "half Irish" (which half?) which would lead me to believe you're American as they are the only people on who make the irrational assumption that anyone is interested in their antecedents. The number of times my toes have curled when someone has said something,a propos of nothing at all, "I'm half Irish and one-eighth Dutch on my mother's side and Scotch,Welsh and English on my father's side. My father's family was from Bridlington, do you know it?"

Henceforth, Aunti Flo', I will make the assumption that you are a woman of half Irish descent.

Thank you, newmania

And thank you, verity. No need to for the elaborate pretence about your toes curling, since newmania has already sussed that you and I don't have any.
