The disciplinary hearing came just weeks after Ms Cooper was criticised for buying a 30p jam doughnut, a 45p bag of McCoy's crisps and a Bounty bar for 35p on her MP's expenses, with one report referring to her estimated size-16 dress size. She said the items were bought as a treat for an unpaid intern.I'd say that estimation is way, way off...
And the disciplinary hearing? What was that all about?
Oh, just Labour turning on its own again:
A veteran Labour politician has been barred from standing for election by party bosses - for allegedly comparing his local MP to an elephant.Yes, Rosie, who's no political lightweight...
The comments that landed Mr Bullen in trouble came as he was speaking at a ceremony installing him as an alderman, when he accused people 'at the highest level' in the party of endorsing attempts to smear him.Oh, girlfriend! Too harsh...!
He said: 'We are all gathered here together and no one is going to mention the "elephant in the room", that of which we do not speak.
'A majority of those present hope that their support for me will provoke the elephant to do something even more stupid than usual: others sit there in fear and dread less they incur the elephant's displeasure. And the noblest group of all remain indifferent to the elephant with their integrity intact.'
And he wasn't finished...
Mr Bullen, 71, then declared that his political career had not ended and said: 'It isn't over till the fat lady sings.'Ha ha ha! If I lived in West Lancashire, I might be tempted to vote for him just for that remark alone...
And for his summing up of this whole situation:
Mr Bullen added: 'I would never make cheap cracks about anyone's appearance, disability or gender. However, where there is a determination to achieve victimhood for oneself or others, offence can always be manufactured.'Indeed it can.
This is to me like the Three Wise Monkeys case
You hope that both will lose, as a A veteran Labour politician you can bet Mr Bullen is not squeaky clean in the art of spin and twist.
Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.
Ye shall know them by their fruits : Mat 7:15
I think she very successfully demonstrated to the entire nation that
a) she is size 32
b) she is stupid
c) she is one of the rare people who actually deserve this kind of abuse to the full extent
I guess the fatter they are, the deeper the holes gets, or so.
Temptation sorely beckons comment - but reeling from recent female wrath I can afford a smirk only, Julia.
I really disagree. It is quite right for the Labour Party to be standing up for the rights of elephants. No elephant should have disparaging comparisons made in this way. The RSPCA should be involved.
Or have I misunderstood?

"...she is one of the rare people who actually deserve this kind of abuse to the full extent..."
"No elephant should have disparaging comparisons made in this way. The RSPCA should be involved."
I think we could argue that they are significantly more intelligent. Also, less likely to fiddle their expenses...
It did warm the cockles of my heart... :)
Fucking hell, I'm not exactly built for speed myself but if she stood in a basket she'd look like a fucking balloon with a face.
Pavlov's Cat: "veteran Labour politician" is code for "ghastly Workers' Champion who if Blair had had the minerals would have been marched off to the Lubyanka like the most recalcitrant Staryy Bolshevik".
They're all tainted scum, but a good rule of thumb is that if a northern Labour politician ascended to office in or before the early eighties, he's an unrepentant Red arsehole.
