Le Totty Watch : Meet Sarkozy’s New Minister

Sarkozy certainly knows how to pick his women. Caribbean-born Christine Kelly, 39, is is to become minister for overseas territories.

The Mail quotes a source as saying “Mr Sarkozy is hugely impressed that she is not only attractive, but in touch with the modern world… Christine has a huge fan base thanks to her regular appearances in the media, and will be a massive asset.”

She certainly has great assets.

    Sir Mark of Mardellshire says:

    Excellent qualifications!

    In other news, Daniel Hannan gives the greatest speech during King Gordon’s visit to Brussels. It is being completely ignored by the BBC.

    Mark Mardell’s blog is awash with reference comments – eventually they stopped the comments.

      The move to Salford will come as a very nasty surprise.

    Harman_Pride says:

    Your sexist, anti-feminist, degrading portrayal of women is extremely offensive and out of place in 21st Century Britain where women are fighting for equality based on their abilities.

    Keep it up – you are once again proving that you are the reactionary Nasty Party. Labour are the true progressives, we are fighting to achieve 50/50 gender balance in Parliament with women-only shortlists and female empowerment programmes. What are the Tories doing?

    “Whatever women do, they must do twice as well as men to be thought half as good. Luckily, this is not difficult.” – Charlotte Whitton

        If you were a wo-man and really hit a man he’d defend himself – and you would learn to moderate your behaviour.

        meanwhile I support all wo-men to not wear a bra – up to a B cup. Bra-less C cup can only be done up to age 23. Half cup gives the better effect

      This must be irony, no one hates the opposite sex as much as Harmen, unless of course they are disabled, or black, or transgender, the raving loony, and you too Mz.


      • 23

        Harriet Harman was elected Deputy PM, beating 5 men in the process – so whatever you and your deluded male chauvinist womyn-haters think, the electorate clearly disagrees.

      Swiss Bob says:

      I think you’ll find the ‘electorate’ are as likely to vote for her as they are to vote for any other clueless idiot in the present Government come the next election. In the party election for Deputy Leader her main contender was Hain, a crook, it would have been hard to lose. Try typing without the spittle on the keyboard, you might make some sense.

      Dave H. says:

      Is this a joke?

      “.. women are fighting for equality based on their abilities.”

      followed by

      “we are fighting to achieve 50/50 gender balance in Parliament with women-only shortlists and female empowerment programmes.”

      So the only way to achieve 50/50 is for women to have extra assistance and an absence of male competition? It doesn’t show much faith in the ‘abilities’. You must have an extradinarily low opinion of women.

    How about a little photo spread to remind us of French good taste and contrast France’s lady politicians with our own?
    Dati, Kelly and others vs dinnerlady Jaqui, Margaret ‘screaming skull’ Beckett, Harperson etc.

    Female Ministers tend to be useless but at least in France they are easy on the eye while being useless.

    For somebody born in the French Caribbean she’s looking decidedly sun-burned. I have to say I regularly visit the Overseas departement of Guadeloupe, more specifically St Barths, and I am here to assure you that never in all my life have I felt more like walking down the beach punching the air and shouting ‘Yes!!!!’. Only my wife would probably get cross. The wall-to-wall topless 20-something babe-fest makes me want to weep with happiness.

    Air France currently doing flights for two adults and two kids for the October break from Paris for 1500 quid the lot (airport code PTP, Pointe a Pitre). Flights up to St Barths with Air Caraibes about 100 quid each extra. Airport code SBH. See y’all there.

      Strangley whitened picture. She doesn’t normally look like that.

      Lucky woman. Guadeloupe has been having a general strike for well over a month.
      Have you been recently? The place looks like its in a right state.

        vlad the pimp says:

        Naaah. Generally go in the October half-term for a couple of weeks. Warm. Cheap flights (used to live in fucking Scotland and since nobody wants to go there you always end up transitting someplace anyway – might as well be Paris as LHR).

        Caribbean. No yanks. Cheap rum. Outstanding eye-candy (not Guadeloupe itself – typical middle-aged fat French women and their bovine husbands) but St Barths? Grand pussy central. Wish I’d discovered it twenty years earlier back when my employer used to fly me from my (self-proclaimed) home base to my workplace at their expense.

      Oh, and Gordon Brown is a fucking imbecile.

    vlad the pimp says:

    I don’t recall the electorate being consulted on Harman’s elevation to deputy leader. Much like Brown being made PM in fact. However, as Margaret Becket found on the death of John Smith it don’t mean spit. It certainly don’t make you PM-in-waiting. Ask Beckett. As Prescott.

    ‘Harriet Harman was elected Deputy PM, beating 5 men in the process – so whatever you and your deluded male chauvinist womyn-haters think, the electorate clearly disagrees.’

    You dumbass – she was elected only by Labour members not by the electorate, and she only got the job because they wanted the better qualified ( in their eyes ) Alan Johnson kept out of it.

    Now go and finish the washing up before Ruth Kelly comes over to have her moustache bleached.

    Speaking as a woman, wimmin, wombyn, whatever…
    Is it something English which turns high-achieving women into sexless, badly-dressed trolls? Can Jacqui Smith really not get to the gym/stop eating pies? Harperson needs the same. Beckett? Surgery. Kelly? Diet, hairdo, skincare regime, and some clothes which don’t look like lesbian geography teacher cast-offs.
    Blears – well, I don’t think either science, robotics, or culture has evolved enough to do anything useful with her.
    Oona King was the only even vaguely attractive MP, but tainted by being an idiot.

    When they’re putting minority shortlists together, why is there not a special provision for “very attractive”. I don’t just mean pretty girls with good racks (though this is clearly important), why are there no Hugh Jackman-alikes in Parliament too?
    Labour claim to be “progressive” but while they actively discriminate against “hot chicks” (and guys) they will never have my vote!

    Vote for beauty! ‘cos Beauty is Truth

      vlad the pimp says:

      It is because they are sexless, badly dressed trolls that they throw themselves into their work in lieu of having a normal sexual relationship. Going out, staying in, putting on make-up. Those kind of time-wasting distractions. Did you see the cut of the ex-Labour-MP bag-lady who was convicted of being a potty mouth this week? And this was one that was allegedly concerned about her self image. She looked like that fucking transvestite potter that won the Turner prize. And a potty-mouthed bag lady to boot.

      This devotion to fuckwittery means that they ascend through the Labour pond-scum like a knife through butter since anybody with even a passing semblence of a work-ethic and an IQ greater than a jellyfish stands head-and-shoulders above their fuckwitted peer group in the Labour party.

      I mean look at the kind of imbecile they made ‘speaker’. In what fucking rational world would anybody vote that comedian into any position of authority. Really. But compared to the rest of the parliamentary Labour party I have no doubt at all that he is indeed in the top 10% of their brain trust.
