Prince Harry can't fly helicopters (Labour Party Conference)

"Prince Harry can't fly helicopters so they made him a copilot to just sit there and go vroom vroom" (Latest from Labour Party Conference; Rt Hon Emma Dent Coad MP).

At least it's not quite as offensive as the disabled soldier wheelchair dolls which were displayed at the previous Labour Conference

She's not a Rt Hon - denotes member of the Privy Council

Ah, the odious bint from the Grenfell management thingy whose fault it wasn't at all in the slightest when she was on it, but as a new MP is happy to run off at the mouth about the nasty Tory council. Cnut.

PS: I know Harry would be miles above this, but wouldn't it be great if he sued her for slander?

The fake news corollary:
"Labour can't fly a country so they made them opposition to just sit there and go blah blah"

I find this really depressing. That the great British public voted this idiot into parliament gives me little hope for the future. Brexit is the least of our problems.

Apparently someone sits beside him and does the flying.
Didn't really do her research did she?

I suppose they remove the collective and cyclic controls from the forward cockpit when he's flying then? The ones in the rear are enough.

What a thoroughly unpleasant woman.

Labour MP accuses Prince Philip of cheating on the Queen and belittles Harry's military service

It's like they are out bidding each other to prostrate themselves at the feet of momentum.

Is Dent Coad an anagram?

That woman, along with several other Liarbor MPs, was probably voted in purely as a protest vote after Cameron's stupid plebiscite and cowardly exit...

Making the statements as strongly as she has about Prince Henry of Wales requires her to make an unequivocal public apology for her spiteful slander. Comrade Corbychev should insist on it, if he has any shred of decency.

Well, if she makes enough noise about other things perhaps nobody will notice she was a board member of the Kensington and Chelsea Tenancy Management Organisation when they passed the cladding that caused Grenfell to go up like a roman candle.

Parliamentary majority of 20, eh? Don't make too much noise, pet.

Seems such a charming lady, I'm sure her majority of 20 will increase next time round.

She claims what she said was all about opening up debate about the Royal Family. If I were her, I'd keep my head down and mouth shut in case anybody wanted to look into her background and open up debate. For example, her criticism of the awful Grenfell fire tragedy, describing as 'entirely preventable'. I wonder what she did to prevent it during the time she was on the council appointed Tenant Management Organisation that managed council accommodation in Kensington and which seemingly reviewed and missed the significance of the cladding being procured and installed on their own accommodation. https://www.standard.co.uk/news/poli...-a3566661.html

Seems a fairly unpleasant character all in all, with little value to add to anything she touches or comments on.

Actually, regardless of your views on the Monarchy (and there are several in my household alone), I think this Lady (I use the word very loosely) is on very thin ice. I believe that Price Harry is both liked and respected across a large cross-section of society of all age groups and social classes for both his Military and non-Military activities.

She might have shot herself badly in the foot here. If I was the Tories I would be making a lot of capital out of this.

I hope she gets her facts right and apologises........... tout suite.
