With blabbermouth Degsy on the comeback trail to fill Farage's seat his words of wisdom deserve a thread

"Taxi for Hatton"

That quip doesn't get old and you can still get 20 likes on any BBC news story that you comment on with that.

If this prick ends up back in the party I'm going, such a hypocritical c**t, he's been flogging properties in Cyprus for the past two decades, about as socialist as a Karl Marx T shirt printed in a sweat shop in India.

Well, actually, no. I don't think that Hatton does warrant a thread. He is more irrelevant than he ever was.

But in the words of Groucho Marx on being told he no longer had to stockpile booze because prohibition was over, "Yes, but it might come back..."

People like booze, though.

I think Hatton's an even better sociopathic bullshitter than Farage.

It was people like him who helped Thatcher into power and helped keep her in power, then have the gall to accuse anyone remotely to the right of them as carrying on Thatcher's legacy.

Hatton was a total, utter and complete prick. I remember talking to some bloke who was a member of Labour in Liverpool at the time and he said Hatton used to turn up, flanked by two big minders, in a black 7 series BMW, looking like a gangster.

Not bad for a deputy leader. Like Colonel Gaddafi we never really found out who the general was he answered to.

Great old clip from Channel 4 Right to Reply in 1991.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Q-z90dh5ScE

Hatton interviewed aboutGBH. Haven't seen that yet, but a couple of comedy Liverpool leftists pop up at the start. One says it's bad because it doesn't attack the Tory Government.

Hatton makes a pig's ear. "That happened! That didn't happen! That's Liverpool! It's not Liverpool!"

You should certainly watch GBH if you haven't. Michael Palin (who is playing Molotov in the forthcoming "The Death of Stalin") and Robert Lindsay are fab in it.

Yes Minister featured an episode where Hacker comes up against slippery left-wing London council leader Ben Stanley. Definitely not Ken Livingstone oh no.
