Mrs Mike swears at politicians.
Admittedly, she only swears at them on the TV – she would never be so rude to their faces (except in certain extreme cases, or the case of certain extremists) – and mostly during Prime Minister’s Questions.
I’ve been looking for a way to share this with you for a considerable period of time – partly because I think the reaction of someone who isn’t a professional pundit may be informative – and finally wore her down with a promise to ‘bleep’ out some of the words she uses with appropriate sound effects.
Thus was born PMQs with Mrs Mike.
This is a pilot project; a first effort to see how it goes, if you like. It happened on a day when Boris Johnson was dodging the bullets, having arranged to make his speech to the Conservative conference at the same time like the coward he is.
Instead, Dominic Raab took the flak from my significant other. What follows is a selection of her output, taken from questions by backbenchers.
Here’s the clip:
Constructive criticism will be welcomed as I’m hoping to make this a regular occurrence.
Have YOU donated to my crowdfunding appeal, raising funds to fight false libel claims by TV celebrities who should know better? These court cases cost a lot of money so every penny will help ensure that wealth doesn’t beat justice.

You don’t appear to heave any sound on that video.
Works well for me now that the sound issue is resolved.
The sound of sheep baa-ing in the background seems particularly apt for PMQs. And Mrs Mike isn’t the only one liable to swear at the TV when PMQs is happening. I’ve had to stop watching because it makes me so angry.
Fabulous! Loved the farm animals in the background. It’s the first time pmq’s has made me chuckle. Thanks Mrs Mike!
Loved the animal background sounds, very apt. My TV is lucky it’s still in one piece at PMQT, normally I shout answer the *bloody* question * * insert a strong expletive. I have even been known to grimace at someone on the TV whilst shouting & giving the Victory Sign & nearly caused an accident as a couple were crossing the Avenue & caught sight of me ranting & raging with my nose right up to the TV it must have looked really strange because they stopped in the middle of the road & a car had to swerve to miss them.
Mrs Mike is not alone.
Mrs Mike needs miking up better so we can hear her properly.
No mikes involved (apart from me). We have no budget or technical expertise and this is just a bit of fun. Hopefully we’ll get better at it as time goes by.
Hi Mr. & Mrs Mike! Not quite sure if the ‘sound issue’ has actually been resolved – but the official broadcast as received from here misses out in the bass register, so I actually have to ‘listen carefully! to hear what the b*****ds say! Which is a newly nasty requirement. Otherwise, it’s really great to have such sympathetic complementary company in a solo environment here in Italy – which can far too often prove to feel politically – well, very solitary indeed!
Looking forward to more!
