Fieldwatch 4 : ‘Vulgarity is the conduct of other people…’

Perkins 2

The Blott,Pip & Addled Caption Competition – answers to Wirralleaks @gmail.com

Vulgarity is the conduct of other people, just as falsehoods are the truths of other people – Oscar Wilde

We’re really sorry we started this but since we’ve been monitoring the local and national media appearances since Birkenhead’s Labour MP Frank Field became an ‘independent’ we could make Wirral Leaks a wall-to-wall Frankenfield-fest…but ain’t nobody got time for that.

However there are a couple of stories which have caught our attention this week which we think highlight his hypocrisies.

First up we have Field seeing fit to comment on the Daily Mail non- story Fury after Bake Off Sue compares PM to ‘s*** on a shoe’

The story concerns Sue Perkins ,ex Great British Bake Off presenter and leading media figure from the LGBTQXYZ community – we really try and keep up with the latest acronyms but apologies if this is not quite right – and her less than flattering assessment of Brexit in general and Theresa May in particular on a late night TV programme ‘The Last Leg’ on Channel 4 that about half a dozen people accidentally watch after they’ve got in from the pub. In response to the question How do you think Theresa May has handled this week? Do you admire her?’ Perkins replied :

‘In the same way I admire s*** on a shoe in that it endures and no amount of using a twig on it or power-hosing it will remove it, so her ability to cling on is the stuff of legend and I don’t want it near me.’

The Daily Mail reported :

Conservative and Labour politicians reacted with fury to the comments yesterday, including Ministers who demanded an apology from the star.

MP Frank Field said: ‘There is a worrying trend in public life that people are getting more and more obscene and violent in their comments and are being allowed to get away with it. What Sue Perkins said crosses the line. Channel 4 and other broadcasters should not let her on again.’

We’d have thought there were more pressing matters for MPs to comment on at the moment but it does allow us to reiterate a point we’ve made before about powerful politicians. Frankenfield, in particular, seems to be cursed with the delicate sensibility of a Victorian maiden aunt forever being offended by the vulgarity and lack of deference of the ‘others’ towards their ‘superiors’. But then Frankenfield has always had a particularly low threshold about what he considers ‘obscene’ . We must tell you ‘The Mary Whitehouse Story’ one day which concerns a poem the anti-obscenity campaigner once showed Field which described Jesus Christ having sexual intercourse with Mary Magdalene. Apparently he’s never got over it…but we’ll save that one for another time.

However back to the point that we wanted to make. We believe that  Conservative and Labour politicians reacting with ‘fury’ to the Perkins’  ‘shit on a shoe’ comment is all about powerful people wanting to control the language,control the political discourse and ultimately control everything. It’s not only as though freedom of expression doesn’t exist – and some might say it doesn’t- but as an expression of righteous anger goes it’s a far cry from the actions of France’s gilets jaunes!

We’re left wondering whether Perkins first encountered this earthy expression when mixing with Wirral Council reps at the Local Government Chronicle awards in 2015 ?

As we know ,since the picture above was taken Kevin Adderley and Joe Blott have left the Wirral Council ‘shoe’ courtesy of being power-hosed off with vast amounts of public money whilst council ‘leader’ Cllr Phil ‘Power Boy Pip’ Davies is scraping himself off before he’s kicked to the kerb. Unfortunately the stain they all leave behind will be indelible and forever stink to high heaven.

As far we’re concerned another quote published this week by a different  national newspaper about their making Universal Credit work campaign (to which we not be providing a link) demonstrates the further hypocrisies at play:

Frank Field MP, Chair of the Work and Pensions Select Committee, also congratulated The S*n on its campaign.

Might we suggest that for many people on Merseyside any association with the tawdry rag following its campaign of hate after the Hillsborough disaster is more worthy of the word ‘obscene’ than a pottymouthed celebrity putdown of the PM.

  1. G’day Leaky

    So “Philly “FUCKING” Liar” has the same morals as his hero COOOOORbin.

    Even when they are caught they lie.

    When they are caught they still won’t just apologise.

    Ooroo

    James

    Wirral “Funny” Bizz £2,000,000.00 knock off whistleblowers are still waiting “Philly “FUCKING” Liar”.

    “Highbrow” is right Lordy and “Interested” there will be a revolution.

    Did you know “Inty” that “Highbrow” did history at Oxford and that is why he shows “The Pretend Friend Jones” up to be a numpty at History as well as Accountancy.

    You shouldn’t be such a jealous little welsh leprauchan egit out of your depth buffoon that only gives a shit about your audit trail you vile little scum bag….merry xmas you santa phoney.

    May your lies and actions fester up on xmas day.

    Only 5 sleeps Lordy luv ya XXXXXXXXXXXXXX

    • James, the lying scumbag Davies despises Corbyn. Of that much I’m certain. All money-motivated, Tory bastards do because he’s gradually, day by day, making “Socialism” an interesting, intriguing prospect. One worthy of further investigation. Cheers mate 🎅🎄

  2. There is nothing more obscene than picking up a newspaper and seeing wealthy retailers Tesco, Asda, et al. standing alongside Tory politicians at foodbanks and using them to freely supplement their advertising campaigns with absolutely no £outlay. Because it fits the pathetic MSM definition of “news”. Then seeing them sit back, and watching profits go through the roof.

    But who was the first to spot an opportunity to boost his political career on the backs of hungry, struggling people?

    You’ve guessed it. Frank Field. Even before the last election he’d marked it as a vote winner and was all cheesey grins, week in and week out in the soaraway (captured) Echo and Globe.

    Spit!!

  3. Lots of delightful/first rate comments from James and Paul. Happy Christmas lads…

    …. and a Happy Christmas to Lord and Lady Leaks.

    And a Happy Christmas to all readers on the best side. And here is the New Year….cheers.
