David Cameron’s Big Society BS Meets Small Minded Muslims In East London

david cameron2 David Camerons Big Society BS Meets Small Minded Muslims In East LondonDAVID Cameron’s been at Toynbee Hall to make a speech on welfare reform. Dave humbly calls it “the most ambitious, fundamental and radical changes to the welfare system” since it was created.

It might be part of Dave’s Big Society. But no-one understands what Big Society means, least of all Dave who says it’s his “mission in politics”. When you’re mission is a vague mish-mash of cloudy bollocks, achieving it may be possible or impossible. The bollocks may even be the mission.

How Fox News Faked The Report To Make Ron Paul Look Bad

TIME for a bit of TV news fakery. YouTube user SaveOurSovereignty3 noticed that when Texas Congressman Ron Paul defeated mainstream Republican Mitt Romney in the CPAC straw poll 2011, Fox News reported the booing that followed the announcement of his name.

Indian Minister Reads Portuguese Foreign Minister’s Speech: This Is The Future Of Democracy

krishna UN Indian Minister Reads Portuguese Foreign Ministers Speech: This Is The Future Of DemocracyIN this video, India’s External Affairs Minister S.M. Krishna will spend three minutes reading out wrong speech to the UN Security Council meeting. Mr Kirshna will read out a speech created for Portuguese Foreign Minister Luis Amado.

Anorak approves. This is how all diplomacy should be conducted. You toss the speeches into the air, everyone pulls one out and thus takes turns at being the bad guy or the good guy.

What relief it would be for Ahmadinejad to talk about his support for Brazil’s National Thong Day; for Barack Obama to actually be a Muslim leader for a while, say of Syria, and call for the leader of the Opposition to be shot in the face; and who would not pay good money to hear David Cameron demand that Australia be a Republic and free of Pommy bastards?

Obama And Other Idiots Suck Up To Racist Muslim Brotherhood: Photos

THERE are people in Trafalgar Square talking about solidarity with Egypt. One man holds up a sign says “Freedom For Palestine”. From what: Hamas or Hezbollah? Maybe both. You can take your pick of all manner of nutters in the Middle East you’d like to be free of. Maybe the Free Palestinians can wave in the Muslim Brotherhood, who are all for a free Palestine: one free of anyone who disagrees with fundamentalist Islam.

As for Egypt’s freedom… Well, what comes next? They are free of Mubarak. Are they free of the US? No. Not yet. Maybe. Obama is vacillating: Obama’s Director of National Intelligence James Clapper tells the House Intelligence Committee that the Muslim Brotherhood is “largely secular“.

What John Hirst Taught Us About Our Pathetic Leaders

John Hirst smokes a spliff What John Hirst Taught Us About Our Pathetic Leaders THAT John Hirst is a murdering racist is matter of public record.

The European Court of Human Rights agreed with Hirst that banning prisoners from voting was wrong. The big debate ensues: should all prisoners, whatever their crime, be banned from voting?

Helmut Hertz Has Words Of Caution For Harry Baals

harry baals Helmut Hertz Has Words Of Caution For Harry BaalsHARRY Baals is huge in Fort Wayne, Indiana. The new game in town is to say Harry Baals as often as possible. When Harry Baals was mayor it was easy to say Harry Baals. But now you need to build a Government centre to get Harry Baals back into your daily chat.

The city already has Harry Baals Drive. And the people want a Harry Baals centre. Democracy counts. Although the perky newsreader says that just because Baals gets the most votes it means nothing. This is why Saddam Hussein got into power. It was either him or the German-born academic Helmut Hertz. Democracy died a little that day…

Barack Obama Is Freedom For Lunch: Open Sesame, Egypt

BARACK Obama is free for lunch:

TUESDAY
Hummus, falafel, tabouli, yogurt ayran

On Tuesday we say “open sesame” to the delicious healthy cuisine of our peace-loving friends in the Middle East. That exciting region has been in the news a lot recently, especially Egypt. This week we learned that ancient land is much more than just pyramids and mummies – it’s also a place where people get disappointed when they lose their internet connection. While you are enjoying lunch, talk with your friends about Egyptian current events. Who are the ‘good guys’? Who are the ‘bad guys’? What should I do? When you have an answer, write an essay and send it to me. You might win an all- expense-paid diplomacy trip with my State Department team!

Christopher Lee: Getting Ready For The Sex Stories

chris lee topless Christopher Lee: Getting Ready For The Sex StoriesREPUBLICAN politico Christopher Lee has resigned in reaction to the fall out of posting a shirtless photo of himself to a woman looking for love on Craigslist. From the time the story broke to the moment of his resignation took just three hours. The woman says she never met him. So. Why did he resign so fast?

Is his greatest crime being stupid enough to have used his real name? He stupidly lied about his age:

“Hope I’m not a toad. icon smile Christopher Lee: Getting Ready For The Sex Stories i’m a very fit fun classy guy. Live in Cap Hill area. 6ft 190lbs blond/blue. 39.. Lobbyist. I promise not to disappoint.”

He’s 46. And get a load of the muscle-hardening fist. He’s buff. And he knows how to take a self-portrait in a mirror. Had he not been so dumb he’d be a shoot-in for Obama’s mobile phone Czar.

But why did he go so fast? Did he go before the story got bigger and engulfed him? Did he see the inevitable media storm approaching and thought it best to get out quick before – maybe – other women came forward?

His resignation letter is humble to the point of parody:

“It has been a tremendous honor to serve the people of Western New York. I regret the harm that my actions have caused my family, my staff and my constituents. I deeply and sincerely apologize to them all. I have made profound mistakes and I promise to work as hard as I can to seek their forgiveness. The challenges we face in Western New York and across the country are too serious for me to allow this distraction to continue, and so I am announcing that I have resigned my seat in Congress effective immediately.”
