Bullying: What they are saying

David Cameron - Did New Labour put an end to fagging? I don't know. You'll have to ask them. What I do know is that Brown looks the kind of fellow who could do with a damn good thrashing now and again.

Ed Balls - I can't remember the last time I threatened to kick the shit out of anybody. My wife takes care of that kind of thing nowadays.

Harriet Harman - Can I just make it very clear that there is a wealth of difference between bullying and the kind of pressure a working mum has to put on her partner in order to make the relationship work. I'm sure my husband Jack would agree.

Tony Benn - Well, of course m'father introduced me to a number of famous bullies: Lloyd George, Herbert Morrison, Mosley. And I worked with one or two m'self - Ernie Bevin and Jim Callaghan, to name but two. And y'know what? To a man they said to me "This is going to hurt me more than it will you." And they were right, y'know.

Ann Widdecombe - The Catholic Church should never have dispensed with torture. All it's led to is an orgy of sado-masochism and self-pity. Of course you'll get bullying if you're always telling people that they must 'turn the other cheek'.

The future is here! The GordWeb Anytime Package!

Working with the government we're giving our customers the opportunity to interact with Gord as never before. The GordWeb Portal is expanding its horizons beyond the Internet! We will be rolling GordWeb out to every town centre, every street corner in Britain. Soon you'll be able to communicate with GordWeb not just at your desk, but while you are driving, shopping, or going about your daily business.

GordWeb will create a network of interactive screens and cameras situated in every town, city and vehicle across the UK. Wherever you are you'll see Gord announce his latest policy initiatives. Amazingly, you'll be able to offer feedback at any time of the day or night, via pin-drop sensitive, high-definition cameras mounted nearby. Of course, the response from No10 will not be immediate. Following Home Office examination, No10 will respond, in most instances, via your mobile phone - which will also be connected to the network.

And here's the great bit: Since the package carries the government's Responsible Technology Warrant, users will automatically qualify for a range of citizenship privileges. These will include "priority user" access to essential local and central government services (see leaflet for details), exemption from a range of statutory government databases, plus a whole host of discounts on government-approved mobile technology and neighbourhood surveillance systems.

Responsible citizenship is simply a click a way! Order now and show that In Gord you trust!
