Daily Mail proves that Global Warming is a thing of the past, which is nice

 Daily Mail proves that Global Warming is a thing of the past, which is niceTHE Earth is no longer going to drown under the weight of melted poles according to the Daily Mail (although, Poles are still obviously a massive threat to the very fabric of some imagined Britishness), which is wonderful news for us all! We can now drive our cars and leave our TVs on standby without fear of making our gill-less children die in a human-imposed watery grave!

The MILF serves the people

milf The MILF serves the peopleTHE Moro Islamic Liberation Front are upbeat. The BBC reports on MILF:

The Philippine government has reached a framework peace agreement with the country’s largest Muslim rebel group, President Benigno Aquino says. The deal follows long negotiations with the Moro Islamic Liberation Front (MILF) to end a 40-year conflict that has cost more than 120,000 lives. It provides for a new autonomous region in the south, where Muslims are a majority in a mainly Catholic country. The MILF is “very happy” with the deal, a spokesman was quoted as saying.

Nick Clegg meets Bono on bended knee

PA 14852309 Nick Clegg meets Bono on bended knee

YOU can forgive Nick Clegg a lot. But then he goes and does the thing that make your cringe: he meets Bono in his London office. If only Nick could be like Bono, saying things to an obsequious audience without fear of having to explain how the great scheme for fairness and peace would work. The journalist / fan / politician nods along. The onderschept popstar prates on. Nick nods and laughs at all the jokes. How Nick would love to be a pop star, a grandees of the platters, living in a stately home or tax haven and talking about distributing wealth and helping the poor . If only he could be like Bono, a stinking rich tax massager who need never explain, just inspire.

The simply Red Singer Mick Hucknell once told us:.

“I’ve said to Tony, ‘You should have waited on Iraq’. He listens.”

Tony Blair was the ultimate pop politico. He had wanted to be a guitarist. He recalls a meeting with President Bill Clinton.

“I like him a lot. We met Chuck Berry and it was a mutual case of ‘Wow!’ Never mind about meeting world leaders, this was a REAL superstar. Meeting Chuck Berry was a great moment for both of us.”

Between 1997 and 2001, Tony Blair’s list of guests at Chequers went:

Sting
Elton John
Bono
David Bowie
Bob Geldof
Mick Hucknall
Lord Attenborough
Joan Collins
Dame Judi Dench
Cilla Black
John Birt
Sir Richard Branson
Delia Smith
Stephen Fry
Kevin Keegan

When Nick Clegg says he wants equality and fairness, he’s an out of touch posh boy. When Bono says it, the politician listens in awe. Poor Nick. Someone give him a guitar…

In photos: The Greek Army played Über Alles as Angela Merkel landed in Athens

IN 5 years the Greek economy has shrunk 23%. Some Greeks believe the country is in the thrall of Germany. So. When German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrived in Athens today, demonstrators shouted slogans, dressed as German World War II soldiers with Nazi swastika armbands, called her a Nazi, compared her to Hitler, and as Merkel’s private plane landed at Eleftherios Venizelos airport the Greek military band struck up that German national anthem (“Germany, Germany above everything”). The past is never far away…

Picture 1 of 21

A protestor holds a banner with the picture of the German Chancellor Angela Merkel that reads "wanted" and "war compensations" during a protest in Athens on Tuesday Oct. 9, 2012. German Chancellor Angela Merkel makes her first visit to Greece since the eurozone crisis began here three years ago. Her five-hour stop is seen by the government as a historic boost for the country's future in Europe's shared currency, but by protesters as a harbinger of more austerity and hardship. More than 7,000 police will be on hand, cordoning off parks and other sections of central Athens, to keep demonstrators away from the German leader who is due to arrive today in the Greek capital for talks with conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras. .

Broun, who occupies a seat in Georgia, says evolution and big bang theory are “lies straight from the pit hell”. Broun was speaking “as a scientist”.

Epic video of Australian MP tearing sexism a new one

 Epic video of Australian MP tearing sexism a new onePOLITICIANS are all slimy swine and no question, but over in Australia, they’re showing us all exactly we should hand them a smackdown. PM Julia Gillard (who once said “screw you!” to US Congress, so she’s not a woman to be trifled with) went to town on an MP called Peter Slipper.

Now, Peter Slipper is an ordained priest, has been accused of sexually harassing a gay man and is thought to have been rather ‘creative’ with his expenses. However, he’s now at the centre of a storm where he’s had his arse royally handed to him… AND THERE’S A VIDEO OF IT! Slipper referred to another MP as ‘an ignorant bitch’, amongst other comments.

The collected marches of Iran’s Busby Berkeley divisions

WHEN the war with Iran comes, it will be won from the air. The US and her allies will have jets, bombers and space; the Iranians will have photoshop and a way to entertain the Heavens that Busby Berkeley would have loved, had he been a racist nutter with an itchy beard:

1. The yellows, whites and greens run into the blues, greys and reds without mixing. Mums faced with piles of dirty laundry get the message. These colours don’t run:

Massive surprise as Vatican act like thundering berks!

 Massive surprise as Vatican act like thundering berks!THE Catholic Church is not a kind institution. Everyone knows about their feelings on homosexuality, abortion, women, contraception, child-abuse and Nazi gold.

So, with little surprise, the Vatican is acting like primitive, brutal arsehats over the Pope’s butler who has been accused of stealing some of Benny the Pontiff’s letters.

Sun educates David Cameron with a Caesar-sized gaffe

 Sun educates David Cameron with a Caesar sized gaffeI APPLAUD the Sun’s attempt to educate the Prime Minister David Cameron on British history after his lamentable, red-faced performance on David Letterman’s chat show. The paper prints 20 facts that may be news to the Old Etonian. Alas, we have only to get to fact 2 to spot a howler. ‘Roman Emperor Julius Caesar didn’t conquer Britain…’ it starts. JC was never emperor, not even king. At best he was dictator for life. The first Roman emperor was the later Octavian aka Augustus.

Politicians’ geography gaffes – a history

14670289 Politicians geography gaffes   a history

WHEN quizzed about Britain on the David Letterman show, David Cameron was apparently unable to give the meaning of the words Magna Carta. We say “apparently” because Boris Johnson, who might of course have his own agenda here, suggested that the Prime Minister knew perfectly well what it meant, but feigned ignorance in order to give the impression that he is just a regular, down-to-earth kinda guy.

Madonna has to point out irony of calling Obama a ‘black Muslim’

 Madonna has to point out irony of calling Obama a black MuslimIT is a sorry state of affairs when people have to point out when they’re using irony. And Madonna, a notorious sarcastic ol’ thing, has had to do exactly that after everyone got jumpy about her calling Barack Obama a “black Muslim” during a show in Washington

A video shows Madge saying: “Now, it’s so amazing and incredible to think that we have an African-American in the White House … we have a black Muslim in the White House … it means there is hope in this country, and Obama is fighting for gay rights, so support the man!”

Cue a pointless furore, to which Madonna (who we’re legally obliged to refer to as ‘The Material Girl’ at some point in this article) responded:

“I was being ironic on stage. Yes, I know Obama is not a Muslim – though I know that plenty of people in this country think he is. And what if he were? The point I was making is that a good man is a good man, no matter who he prays to. I don’t care what religion Obama is – nor should anyone else in America.”

“This is part and parcel of something which I think most people agree with, which is that as we fill in the black hole in the public finances we have also got to make sure that we do not put Humpty Dumpty back together again and make the same mistakes, that we rewire the British economy and make it fairer and give people more opportunities.”

Like honest George Romney, Mitt’s gaffe is to say too much

 Like honest George Romney, Mitts gaffe is to say too muchMITT Romney’s campaign for the US Presidency is been damaged by a gaffe. Sure, it was an effort to look honest. But Romney’s criticism of the poor was caught on tape. He said 47% of Americans think of themselves as victims. He said: “[My] job is not to worry about those people. I’ll never convince them they should take personal responsibility and care for their lives.”

Mitt Romney’s father was George Romney. He might have been president. But then he gaffed. George Romney, governor of Michigan said the right things that might have united a nation:

“Michigan’s most urgent human rights problem is racial discrimination — in housing, public accommodation, education, administration of justice and employment….It was only after I got to Detroit that I got to know Negroes and began to be able to evaluate them, and I began to recognise that some Negroes are better and more capable than lots of whites.”
