Dennis Skinner Is The Biggest Savage In UK Politics

For a man like Dennis Skinner, British politics must now seem pretty alien. Here you have a lone wolf unstoppable in his pursuit of rubbishing glossy rhetoric and humiliating wind-vane MP's. A constant supporter of bogged-down somebodies and critic of jumped-up nobodies.

But to those on the left, one of those somebodies is actually the 'Beast of Bolsover' Dennis Skinner himself. A hardened veteran of 46 years, Skinner has sat witness through the failures of both Thatcherism and Blairism and come out the other side. Still abrupt, still in-tune.

Unlike some others, he hasn't let grey hair blunt his sharp tongue. In fact, he seems to have gotten angrier, and more passionate, as the years have gone by.

People like to dismiss him as a dinosaur, and I'd agree. Skinner is a dinosaur. Though not in the sense of being a fossil of the past but rather that he holds court like a T-Rex and eats his opponents like Pringles.

Judging by his infamous outbursts in the House of Commons, you could even argue that Dennis Skinner is the most woke, most savage motherfucker in Parliament.

In light of his most recent jibe at Blackrod, we've compiled some of his best bits.
