For all it's problems, Britain is wonderfully tolerant of mental cases:
I saw that live earlier today. Am waiting for Hansard to be published so that I can see what she actually said.
Quentin Letts (of the Daily Mail) mentioned her on the Andrew Neil politics show this lunch time and said she was "batty".
Anyone know what she's done to her arm?
What a shambles. Can't they discuss anything sensibly without behaving like a load of yobs & shouting everything down. No wonder the poor woman had to screech like a banshee to make herself heard. These are the people who are making decisions that affect our lives. I despair.
Nelson, we don't have people classified as mental cases any more, they are either people with learning difficulties, or people with severe learning difficulties, please can you re categorise your MP's status (humour intended)
Lynne thank you for the message to look here, excitable thing isn't she.
Cassandra These are the people who are making decisions that affect our lives. I despair. No No No These are the people who make decisions that affect their lives, we are not that important.
I think people are over reacting..... to her over the top question, which was quite amusing to those in the chamber, (and myself), and judging by her smile as she sat down she felt people had paid attention.
Thank goodness that our parliament allows for personalities to liven up procedure, without shooting each other.
Mental case? Paul James, I apologise for my previous post. You need as much publicity as you can get.
The rotary club have a charities thing on early August could this be of help
Why are we discussing Pauls diagnosed disorder on the same page as Anne Marie's undiagnosed position ?????????? (humour intended)
I think your're going to fit in well with dawlish.com. ( !!!???? humour intended, accidental, whatever)
Hey maybe you could start a new thread
Anne Marie's diagnosis
then get people to maybe vote on which ever they think appropriate and then have a topping out ceremony for her
Diagnosis already mentioned on this site
I knew you'd settle in here
"we don't have people classified as mental cases any more, they are either people with learning difficulties, or people with severe learning difficulties"
of course, that was said with "humour"
Q2.  Anne Marie Morris (Newton Abbot) (Con): This Government have a great record on education reform. [Hon. Members: “ Hear, hear.”] Given the huge success of the university technical college initiative—more than 25 such colleges have been created—will the Prime Minister please confirm that he will support a further round of applications this autumn, and that funding will be available so that businesses, universities, carers and young people in Devon—[Interruption.]
The Prime Minister: It is good to see my hon. Friend on such feisty form. She is absolutely right to speak up for university technical colleges, which I think are a great addition to the schools that we have in our country. They are a really high-profile way of providing proper vocational education so that we can give young people the skills that they need in order to have a great career in the future.
The PMQ clip of A-MM was shown again today on the midday Andrew Neil politics show. Apparently they had recieved requests from all over the country for it to be shown again.
David Davies MP was also on the show today and it so happened that he was sat bang in front of A-MM when she did her impression of a screaming banshee yesterday.
David Davies said that the noise that A-MM made was very loud - even louder than it appeared to us watching on the tv. Well, I suppose if you were sat bang in front of her or to the side of her that would be the case. When Andrew Neil asked David Davies if he knew what it was that A-MM was asking he said "No".
I am reminded of those television commercials that for some reason stick in the mind but yet we can't remember what it was that they were advertising in that I think A-MM's delivery of her question yesterday will be remembered but not its content.
Mind you I bet the likes of the ubiquitous Louise Mensch MP are spitting blood what with all this tv and internet publicity A-M M is getting. I wonder if it will go viral?
and this is from The Telegraph
and now, apparently, A-M M's left arm (that's the one in the sling) has its own twitter account.
Have met her a couple of times doing Legion things. She seems okay; interested in fact! Which is unusual for politicians.
Pity she's a rabid Tory really!;-)
Surely this was just one of those questions that is a put-up job to allow the PM to deliver a prepared response.
@HuwMatthews2 - rabid Tory. an example of tautology from my perspective, but perhaps becoming a Tory is just one of the early symptoms of rabies like running around and biting at random.
Agree with you about the put-up job type of question but surely it wasn't the content of her question that has brought her this new found 'fame' but how she delivered it!
It is probably like the displays of public grief after the death of Kim Jong-il. A newish Tory MP probably has to appear overcome with emotion at the wisdom of her glorious leader and the policies of the Party.
@Don .... or your original rabies theory may be right. Rabies => hydrophobia = fear of water; so maybe, just maybe, she has been afflicted by the constant deluge here since April.
