David Cameron Not Mistaken For Gary Glitter On London Underground

tawt David Cameron Not Mistaken For Gary Glitter On London UndergroundDID anyone else see David Cameron on the London Underground? The Prime Minister, was on the Tube London Underground, riding incognito dressed in immaculate dark blue suit, midnight blue tie and brogues. To his rear is a thick-wristed low-browed sort with a licence to kill. You might have mistaken Cameron for a banker riding the Tube for a dare. But that is the Prime Minster, a man who forgoes a company car with driver for public transport.

In case you aren’t already staring at him, Cameron is approaching one Sanyogita Mayer, 27, and her husband Yanko, 31, to ask about their their three-month-old daughter Sayama.

Says Mrs Mayer:

“We were on our way to go shopping. This man got on at Westminster and came past me and said: ‘Is it your baby?’”

Mrs Mayer is from India. You might wonder why Dave asked her this question and what tone he used. Did he use the anti-immigration “Is that your baby?”, or opt for the smoothy “Is that your baby…” you don’t look nearly old enough, my dear.

Amnesty Internation Wants George Dubya Arrested

George Bush9 Amnesty Internation Wants George Dubya ArrestedDUBYA! What a guy! The most comedic world leader in years! Nearly as funny as that Ronald Reagan guy! Of course, the fundamental difference between George W. Bush and Ronnie is that Dubya is being harangued by Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, while Ron is… well… dead.

Amnesty has gone and demanded the arrest and prosecution of Bush before he appears at an economic summit in Surrey, British Columbia on October 20th.

They want his arrest due to the “overwhelming evidence that Bush and other senior administration officials authorized and implemented a regime of torture and ill-treatment of hundreds of detainees in US custody.”

They also want him extradited but, naturally, the Canadian government has absolutely no intention of playing ball with these demands, in favour of listening to Neil Young LPs and trying to ignore the organizations that are “engaging in cheap stunts.”

Cameron Must Chop Liam Fox Before The Army Does

3822241 Cameron Must Chop Liam Fox Before The Army DoesSOME news and political sources are now openly hinting UK Defence Secretary Dr Liam Fox may be gay. Whether or not there is a close physical relationship between his Best Man Adam Werritty and Fox, as possible consenting adults, it is a matter for them.

I couldn’t give an old Queen’s tremulous giggle one way or the other.

What can no longer be in doubt is the ridiculous mind-set of the UK Premier David Cameron on the whole sorry mess of the unappointed adviser in the shape of Werritty.

Ridiculous?

Dr Liam Fox Poses For The Greatest Photo Ever

dr liam fox 300x219 Dr Liam Fox Poses For The Greatest Photo EverDR Liam Fox is in the mire over his relationship with an “advisor” Adam Werritty. No, not adviser. Mr Werritty describes himself as an “advisor” to Dr Fox on his business cards. An “adviser” is someone who gives advice; an “advisor” is someone hired to give advice. But while debate rages, Fox smiles and carries on. And he really gives it the full beam. We’ve pulled together a gallery of Dr Fox to entertain you. All are good but the third picture is nothing short of fantastic.

Rick Perry Recalls America’s War With The Tudors And Stuarts

henry viii1 Rick Perry Recalls Americas War With The Tudors And StuartsGET back to Bong-Bongo-istan, Herman Cain, Rick Perry is taking his chance to be the biggest idiot in the Republican race to the White House. As he says to the folks of the  Beta Theta Pi fraternity:

“Our Founding Fathers never meant for Washington, D.C. to be the fount of all wisdom. As a matter of fact, they were very much afraid of that because they’d just had this experience with this far-away government that had centralized thought-process and planning and what you have you. And then it was actually the reason that we fought the [American] Revolution in the 16th century — was to get away from that kind of onerous crown, if you will.”

Bill Clinton Has A Photographic Memory For Things He Wants To Remember

1170290 217x300 Bill Clinton Has A Photographic Memory For Things He Wants To RememberDID you know that Bill Clinton has a photographic memory? This is the man who when asked if he had been  “alone” with Monica Lewinsky, replied that he could not remember: “I guess we were alone, but I never thought we were.” Of course, Monca was under his desk, allegedly.

Yahoo reports:

In addition to Clinton’s many other talents, he is known for having a near photographic memory. The term gets tossed around a lot, but to actually have the ability is quite rare. According to an article from the Washington Post, Clinton “stunned a friend visiting the White House by saying, ‘Let’s call your parents!’ and then reciting a number he hadn’t dialed in more than a decade.”

john lewis Occupy Atlanta Might Be The Dumbest Thing You Or John Lewis Will Ever See

OCCUPY Atlanta might just have created the dumbest political protest of all time. Congressman John Lewis has asked to address the crowd. Leiws is leading light of the civil rights movment.

And what a crowd. They do no clapping. Why? Because clapping might “prevent someone else who is addressing the assembly from being heard”. Instead, the do a “signal approval” that sees the crowd raise a hand and wiggle their fingers.

Embattled MP Chris Huhne today tweeted an intriguing message into the public domain and then promptly deleted it. Perhaps he should have DM’d it.

It read: ‘From someone else fine but I do not want my fingerprints on the story. C’

After Rochdale’s Cyril Smith Leisure Centre The Gordon Brown Music Hall

cyril smith After Rochdales Cyril Smith Leisure Centre The Gordon Brown Music HallWILL the refurbished leisure centre in Rochdale be named after Sir Cyril Smith, the LibDem politician who weighted a jovial 29 stone at his heaviest?

Rochdale councillor Dale Mulgrew, Sir Cyril’s godson, tells one and all:

“Apart from the plaque that we intend to unveil outside the town hall next month, which really is no more than a small civic commemoration, the town won’t have a totemic, significant memorial in lasting tribute to Cyril’s work. After all, Gracie Fields has a theatre. Clearly, a lot of Cyril’s work over his time was around education, and clearly the new leisure centre will have a schools dimension because it will be used during the day by our local education establishments. This is about a lasting memorial, irrespective of the facility, and Cyril would have promoted the community and social aspects of this building.”

Primal Scream Are Too Tame For The Sex Mad Conservatives

teresa may Primal Scream Are Too Tame For The Sex Mad Conservatives ANORAK loves it when minted rockers talk about politics. This week Primal Scream were upset that the Conservative Party’s Home Secretary Theresa May walked off the stage at the Tory Party conference to the strains of Rocks.

The band issue a statement in Q magazine:

“Primal Scream are totally disgusted that the Home Secretary Theresa May ended her speech at the Tory Party conference with our song ‘Rocks’.How inappropriate. Didn’t they research the political history of our band? Hasn’t she listened to the words? Does she even know what getting your rocks off means? No. She is a Tory; how could she?”

Michael Gove Wins Rupert Murdoch’s Order Of The Brown Nose

michael gove bron nose Michael Gove Wins Rupert Murdochs Order Of The Brown NoseYOU know all that stuff about editors and hacks being in the pockets of their news organs’ owners? You know that stuff about the Tories and Rupert Murdoch being tighter than Angelina Jolie’s smile?

You know how the Times wants us to know that it is not the News of The World - it is, to borrow a phrase of William Hague’s – in News International but not ruled by News International?

Well, Michael Gove, a former Times writer now working as a Tory Cabinet Minister, says Murdoch’s great. And in case Rupert does not get the message – and he should take care when sitting down lest he suffocate Gove – the Times’ sub-editors create the headline:

Murdoch’s a phenomenon and I admire him, says minister

Occupy Wall Street: Revolution Starts With An Echo

THE Occupy Wall Street protest just got odd. The Occupy Wall Stret protest just got odd. Jonah Goldberg explains:

Now, for those who don’t understand what’s happening here, the crowd repeats what the speaker says because the Occupy Wall Streeters are out of/opposed to/not permitted microphones or other voice amplifying technology. This is seen by many as a perfectly good excuse for looking like complete idiots. I’ll let others debate that.

Still, tell me you wouldn’t love it if a speaker yelled You don’t need to follow anybody! You’re All Individuals!”

Is this how a revolution starts – with an echo?

Michelle Obama Is A Normal Person Who Shops At Target: Photos

WHAT odds that when Michelle Obama went along to a supermarket to stock up on vaseline, chips and dental floss an Associated Press photographer should just happen to be there to capture her ordinariness in high resolution images? Given that just looking at the Obamas with anything less than adulation in your dewey eyes is likely to get you ten years in solitary and shot in the face, it seems pretty odd that a stranger should get close enough to point a large black metal device in her direction.

But, then, Obama might well recognise Charles Dharapak, the AP’s photographer in the aisles, from his beat at the White House.

FundaMENTAL Christian Shouts At Obama

 FundaMENTAL Christian Shouts At Obama YES! Politics! Don’t worry, it’s not too political. This is an article about mental people. Mental religious people specifically. Mental religious people in LA no less! Perfect.

Anyway, at a fundraiser in Los Angeles, Prez Obama was playing it cool to a bunch of supporters when the jovial atmosphere was cut in two when some nutjob started howling “one true Christian God!”, followed by the lovely “antichrist” jibe that’s been thrown Barry’s way on countless occasions.

It seems odd that the openly Christian Obama should get chided with accusations of being the antichrist, but hey ho, that’s fundamentalist American Christians for you.

The Christian man shouts:

“The Christian God is one and only true living God! The creator of heaven and the universe! Jesus Christ is God! Jesus Christ is God! Jesus Christ is still our God! Jesus Christ is still God! You are the Antichrist!”
