Only Sarah Ferguson Can Stop Julia Gillard From Replacing The Royal Family As Australia’s Head Of State

118944441 Only Sarah Ferguson Can Stop Julia Gillard From Replacing The Royal Family As Australias Head Of StateAUSTRALIAN Prime Minister Julia Gillard is for making her country a Republic. Maybe President Julia can handle the job of representing her nation to the world?

Prime Minister Julia Gillard yesterday offered one of the weirder, and saucier, greetings in modern diplomacy when she met New Zealand’s Foreign Minister, Murray McCully (right), at the official opening of CHOGM.

‘’You got an apple in your pocket?’’ she said as she met Mr McCully in the greeting line. Mr McCully looked slightly thunderstruck and Ms Gillard giggled.

‘’I’m teasing you,’’ she said.

Tony Blair, The Daily Telegraph And Those Rich Kazakh Despots

4164905 Tony Blair, The Daily Telegraph And Those Rich Kazakh DespotsTHE Daily Telegraph seems upset that Tony Blair is making money from dealing with Kazakhstan:

Human rights groups have criticised Kazakhstan for its control of the media and it has never held an election judged to be free and fair by international observers. October 25, 2011

Tony Blair, the former Prime Minister, is helping the controversial government of Kazakhstan to improve its standing in the West….

Diplomatic cables sent from the Kazakh capital, Astana, and published by WikiLeaks accused the country’s politicians of widespread corruption, saying: “Corruption is endemic among Kazakhstani officialdom.”
The US cables also report: “Severe limits on ability to change their government; detainee and prisoner torture and other abuse; unhealthy prisoner conditions; arbitrary arrest and detention; lack of an independent judiciary; restrictions on freedom of speech; pervasive corruption, especially in law enforcement and the judicial system; discrimination and violence against women; trafficking in persons.” – October 23, 2011

Tony Blair may have lost one dictator friend with the death of Colonel Muammar Gaddafi. But he need not despair. He has found another autocrat to do business with in the guise of Nursultan Nazarbayev, the president of oil-rich Kazakhstan. – October 22, 2011

Colonel Gaddafi’s Death Video: He Died Years Ago

Screen shot 2011 10 21 at 17.55.27 Colonel Gaddafis Death Video: He Died Years AgoWHEN a celebrity dies, everyone becomes a joker don’t they? That, or they turn into blubbing, sensitive wail-bags. Of course, both are equally irritating and understandable.

So when Colonel Gaddafi got his body killed until the brains died, everyone laughed, wrung their hands and spat at the front covers of newspapers featuring his cadaver. Which did look a bit like Gene Simmons in a Shalamar wig in fairness. It’s hard not to make jokes when faced with that.

Either way, no matter how quick you thought you were with your wheezes, someone beat you to it by decades.

Is The US Declaration Of Independence Legal? No, Says the British

Captain Britain v1 39p1 Is The US Declaration Of Independence Legal? No, Says the BritishHEY, America. We own you! Your Declaration of Independence is worthless.

The BBC reports on goings on in Philadelphia’s Ben Franklin Hall, where American and British lawyers have been looking at the legality of the documents that cemented America.

On July 4, 1776, Thomas Jefferson and cohorts declared that they were going it alone.

But the debate says The Declaration of Independence is illegitimate and illegal. On one side of the spat is the Temple American Inn of Court. On the other is Gray’s Inn, London. It’s the Lawyer v Lawyer smack down. It’s the American superego versus the British self-depracating sneer of superiority.

Say the Americans:

“The English had used their own Declaration of Rights to depose James II and these acts were deemed completely lawful and justified.

She is challenged by Tim Owen QC, for Miss Zatuliveter. The name of Anna Chapman arises:

ZZ: “The security services case is there are similarities but not by any means the same.”

Owen: “The difference is the FBI has got some evidence. Yes?”

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.”

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.”

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.
