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.”

 Nick Clegg replaced by automated word software on Andrew Marr show   proofNICK Clegg has been on the Andrew Marr show. Says Clegg:

“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.”

Why George Osborne is screwing with updating benefits

 Why George Osborne is screwing with updating benefitsWHY is George Osborne screwing with your benefits? Because he can, basically. But the how is more interesting:

If the move is implemented, many benefits would be frozen for two years, then rising only in line with average pay.

Leave aside the freeze for a moment. Concentrate on the average pay instead. The “only” part.

The best Barack Obama burning effigies – Islamists go bonkers for Bonfire Night (photos)

ONE thing you cannot escape noticing is that Islamists love scarecrows. Wherever and whenever an anti-American protest breaks out some gurning loon will be there with an effigy of the US President he wants to set on fire. It isn’t Santa Claus’s Christmas, Halloween or Mother’s Day the US should have exported round the globe – it’s Bonfire Night, that British custom of spending every November 5th in the company of a stuffed, militant religionist (in this case the Catholic Guy Fawkes) with a rocket up his arse. If you want to show the jihadis that they are not the enemy, give them a hot jacket potato, a sparkler and invite them to bring an effigy to burn on the Bonfire. Recently, the Bonfire Nighters have been focusing on Barack Obama. Here are some of the best scarecrows/ effigies / Guys so far:
