Can anyone tell me why that bunch of gormless prats in Parliament are all wearing golden wheat sheafs on their jackets?

Are they about to reintroduce the corn laws?

Certainly can...... you will be delighted to learn.

They are wearing them to confuse gormless prats who pose the question on websites when a very brief click on the BBC's website would have revealed the answer......

Not only wheat ears (I seem to remember a wheat sheaf is a bloody big thing!) but in some cases at least, the stalks are wrapped in British wool. All was revealed in that connection during an interview on Radio 4 early this morning.
Meanwhile, I am watching PMQ at this time and it seems to me the PM has been thoroughly rattled on more than one occasion thus far. While not a Corbyn fan, I have to say he gave her a proper hammering with at least one of his questions, while the SNP leader (is it Blackford) stated loud and clear that she and her government are not fit to govern. I thought she was on the verge of tears at one point.
Then, I would say that, wouldn't I!
As PMQ comes to an end, can anyone explain why the Speaker uses the command "Order" seemingly to tell the Members to clear off out of here?

Is this the new UK Politics thread?

We need one as the only way I can access the old one is go to page 1 and hit the reply button.

Jeremy wouldn't be nearly as keen to support British farming if he knew what an absolutely brilliant inheritance tax wheeze agricultural land ownership is in Britain. Still, he'll get around to rehabilitating that set up too once he's in power and then, with all the rich made impecunious and there being no sidereal benefit from farming, especially after the proposed collectivisation, there'll have to be gifts of victuals from the French for the country to survive. Carrefour will run food banks, 'pour les pauvres Anglais'.

Happily, one can always rely on the Whitchurch Herald (http://www.whitchurchherald.co.uk/news/national/16837456.why-were-mps-wearing-wheat-on-their-lapels-at-pmqs/) to answer those tricky questions.

My ( British and 101% Trade Unionist ) step father always said ' Beware all those politicians who always seem to be wearing lapel badges to feign support for something different every week....Unless it is to support their local football team '.....

Oh dear, and to thunk my altruistic nature came to the fore to answer your question......one is mortified !

However, you may note I posted my reply about 8 mins after your query....now here cometh the dilemma because, at the time of posting, the answer was indeed displayed on the link !......sadly, had you taken about less than a minute to clunk onto the Beeb's website, prior to exemplifying your sentiment, all would have been revealed to you. But, as the saying goes, "time and tide ( now updated to include teckernology) waits for no man "

Of course, they could have all been dropping hints to Treeza about her gambols and frolics in the wheat fields in her halcyon youth....well maybe not.

(I've been really surprised that we didn't get a Gruinard link!)

Do most Labour MPs know what a farm is?

Sure, so much wind to generate power.

Personally I'm of the opinion that it had **** all to do with any altruistic nature and more to do with your wanting to appear (appear being the important bit) more knowledgeable than someone else.

In the end, all you managed to do as usual is to make yourself sound like a total arse.
