Frank Field : Fearless or Shameless ?

Now we’ve imagined that we would meet a grisly end courtesy of either a failed brakes incident as Her Ladyship and I cruised La Grande Corniche or a like a deadlier version of the opening scene to the film ‘Sexy Beast’ as we lounged in the Mediterranean sun.

However it would seem our readers have other ideas. Are you really trying to induce a coronary? We say this as we’ve received pictures from a Mail On Sunday reader – we’re a broad church and we don’t judge – yeah right! we hear you cry- but that particular publication isn’t usually part of our reading matter , especially when it regularly features their ‘pet’ Labour politician Frank Field.

Last Sunday’s edition exceeded itself as it features a full page spread of our beloved MP for Birkenhead under the headline – ” Fearless Frank : How I brought TWO Philip Greens down to size” and where we find Frankenfield adopting a macho stance (or as close an approximation as he can manage).

The TWO Philip Greens involved are the former boss of BHS , ‘Sir’ Philip Green and the Carillion CEO of the same name who isn’t a knight of the realm . Frankenfield is wringing every last ounce of self-aggrandizing publicity out of this isn’t he?  How ‘fearless’ do you have to be when you’re the chair of Work and Pensions Select Committee and what is it with Frankenfield and Greens? – beit Dave, Philip or the Green Party? Perhaps ‘Dear Papa’ forced him to eat his greens and he’s held a grudge ever since. And if there’s one thing we know about Foodbank Frank is that he ‘bears more grudges than lonely high court judges’  .

The hagiographic article written by the clearly impressionable William Turvill is jampacked with early entries for the Leaky Awards ‘ “Quote of the Year”.

Now if questions  A) and B) were posed to Wirral Council, Grant Thornton etc; instead of untouchable ,distant but headline-grabbing multi-millionaires we might have more respect for him*

nb – let’s be honest it’ll be a cold day in hell when we have any respect for Frank Field

But our absolute favourite quote was this :

To which we would like to respond and say : Be careful what you wish for Frankie-baby! Although it must be great when Wirral Council (or rather their council taxpayers) are picking up the bill as a result of your scheming ways!

  1. Frank not so frank why are you here? Playing the man of the common people? Still? At least it’s got you where you wanted to be. Franklly Mr Frank Fields I constantly think of this

    Frankly Mr. Shankly
    The Smiths
    Frankly, Mr. Shankly, this position I’ve held
    It pays my way, and it corrodes my soul
    I want to leave, you will not miss me
    I want to go down in musical history
    Frankly, Mr. Shankly, I’m a sickening wreck
    I’ve got the twenty first century breathing down my neck
    I must move fast, you understand me
    I want to go down in celluloid history, Mr. Shankly
    Fame, fame, fatal fame
    It can play hideous tricks on the brain
    But still I’d rather be famous
    Than righteous or holy
    Any day, any day, any day
    But sometimes I feel more fulfilled
    Making Christmas cards with the mentally ill
    I want to live and I want to love
    I want to catch something that I might be ashamed of
    Frankly, Mr. Shankly, this position I’ve held
    It pays my way and it corrodes my soul
    Oh, I didn’t realise that you wrote poetry
    I didn’t realise you wrote such bloody awful poetry, Mr. Shankly
    Frankly, Mr. Shankly, since you ask
    You are a flatulent pain in the ass
    I do not mean to be so rude
    Still, I must speak frankly, Mr. Shankly
    Oh, give us your money
    Songwriters: Steven Morrissey / Johnny Marr

    ‘We have given them almost six years to own up and say it was all wrong, they’ve lied, cheated, hidden stuff, obfuscated and told bare faced lies.’
