Paul Rowen in Brown eye danger...
No, nothing rude.
And not a reference to Clarkson talking through his arse about Gordon Brown's eye.
Rather, its a reference to a health and safety scare caused by Paul Rowen's appearance at PMQ's this week- talking through his arse about Gaza. (He's been to Stasbourg don't you know, and shoe horned a reference to the International Criminal Court into the only short speech he made whilst there).
2009 is definately the year that Rochdale's current MP discovered Palestine. But why?
More of that later.
The "Brown eye" reference is a result of a scurrulous anonymous comment made about Rowen talking tripe at £6.66 a word.
The naughty mystery observer wrote:
"Portly Paul fluffed his slot in this week's PMQ's.
Well meaning drivel designed merely to get a headline that included "Gaza" in the title.
MP's were transfixed. Not by Paul's oratory but by the sheer tension of his shirt buttons under the extreme pressure of his gut. No belt tightening with the Rowen parliamentary expenses on food and 'entertainment' by the looks of it.
If a taught [sic] shirt button fails it could fly over the chamber and have someones eye out.
"Paul Rowen in Brown Eye Scandal"
Now that is a headline that could make tongues wag!"
We have seen the photo on Rochdale Online that accompanies Paul (or Dave Hennigan's) triumphant press release about him being "disappointed" with the PM.
Paul does look like Mr Greedy in the Chamber.
(Although this may be a stock(y) photo, seeing that Paul is also using this photo of him 'talking to the Prime Minister' on another pisspoor press release).
If Paul Rowen's shirt buttons did pop they would have the trajectory of jet powered tiddlywinks.
For goodness sake Gordon (and others on the Front Bench) wear safety glasses if Cyril Smith's protégé has his unfeasibly tight shirt pointing in your direction.
