Friday Caption Contest (Bercow Rangers Edition)

Bercow-Rangers

Picture taken at a Glasgow Rangers Supporters Club in the late 80s, note the Rangers / red hand, UDA poster.  Those Scottish (Catholic) Labour MPs who bet so successfully on the outcome of the last election  for Speaker and are now considering backing Bercow, might reflect on some of the traditional songs which John led the gathering in singing.  One thing about us “dirty Fenian fuckers”, we have long memories…

Sadly the picture of Bercow taken on a junket to Israel (not long after the Sabra and Shatila massacre) posing Rambo-style, wearing a comically over-sized Israeli Defence Force uniform whilst holding a machine gun, hasn’t turned up. Yet…

      Rangers are the better team.

      As usual Bercow is backing the side that’s going to win.

      And they’re blue….

        In the words of another song, “The famine’s over, why don’t you go home!”

        Admit it Guido, you must like it here!

          Guido’s about as Irish as Osama bin Laden’s left testicle. He’s just a sad middle-class Englishman trying to make himself more interesting by adopting a foreign identity.

          I do agree, though, that it’s high time for our Irish guests to fuck off back where they came from. They obviously hate it here, to judge from the amount of time they spend raping British law, British culture and British traditions, so wouldn’t they be happier if they all just went home? I know I would be. And since I wouldn’t have to be taxed to penury to support Britain’s population of Catholic bone idle criminal dole scroungers, I’d be richer too.

          I’d like to echo that sentiment with regard to the Jockoe politicians in England.

          PLEASE take them back and let them help build a new independent Scotland where you can all fester in the cesspit of your own prejudices without involving the ENglish or our money.

          Mrs Miggins you are a moron……Quality of Irish food here in Cork is amazing. All local produce – Lobsters,prawns,west Cork beef,organic vegetables. Some of the best food I have ever tasted. All Irish chefs too.You’ve obviously never been to Kinsale.

          Beats the fried Mars bars in Jockland. Food in Aberdeen was disgusting when I lived there. Food in parts of England can be pretty disgusting too.

          112 – I rather like England but perhaps I will “Fuck Off’ as you suggest. Should I take the 200 jobs I created with me? how about my taxes, are you happy to lose that.

          Pricks like you don’t deserve to live in a country like this. It wouldn’t surprise me if you were actually receiving working family tax credit whilst giving it large about ‘scroungers’. That scenario rather fits with your demonstrated intellect

          Nive try Guido but your pull with Labour backbenches may be, somewhat less than you imagine shall we say.

          I hear Bercow also had a Gary Glitter record when he was a Lad.
          Doesn’t that ensure he will not be Speaker ?

          Becket’s an out of touch Trougher with the absolutely no Poltical sense for what the public wants from Parliament as her memorable booing by the crowd in a recent Question Time proved.

          George Young is an old etonian dinosaur and big trougher who wouldn’t know reform or if it smacked him in his Baronet.

          One day the UK (or what is left of it) will be rid of this aberration that is the established church (in England) and the country will once again be free of the tyranny of a disfunctional Parliament, a bogus monarchy, and a criminal ruling elite. If Bercow and his Rangers supporting bully boys dont like it they stick it where the sun dont shine.

I bloody well know they’d be busting my door down in a dawn raid if they got wind I’d done something like this. But bloody MPs…ohhh no. Not them. They pay back what they think they’ve nicked and that’s that.

          1. The civilian population and individual civilians shall enjoy general protection against dangers arising from military operations. To give effect to this protection, the following rules, which are additional to other applicable rules of international law, shall be observed in all circumstances.

          2. The civilian population as such, as well as individual civilians, shall not be the object of attack. Acts or threats of violence the primary purpose of which is to spread terror among the civilian population are prohibited.

          3. Civilians shall enjoy the protection afforded by this Section, unless and for such time as they take a direct part in hostilities.

          4. Indiscriminate attacks are prohibited. Indiscriminate attacks are:

          (a) those which are not directed at a specific military objective;

          (b) those which employ a method or means of combat which cannot be directed at a specific military objective; or

          (c) those which employ a method or means of combat the effects of which cannot be limited as required by this Protocol; and consequently, in each such case, are of a nature to strike military objectives and civilians or civilian objects without distinction.

          5. Among others, the following types of attacks are to be considered as indiscriminate:

          (a) an attack by bombardment by any methods or means which treats as a single military objective a number of clearly separated and distinct military objectives located in a city, town, village or other area containing a similar concentration of civilians or civilian objects; and

          (b) an attack which may be expected to cause incidental loss of civilian life, injury to civilians, damage to civilian objects, or a combination thereof, which would be excessive in relation to the concrete and direct military advantage anticipated.

          6. Attacks against the civilian population or civilians by way of reprisals are prohibited.

          7. The presence or movements of the civilian population or individual civilians shall not be used to render certain points or areas immune from military operations, in particular in attempts to shield military objectives from attacks or to shield, favour or impede military operations. The Parties to the conflict shall not direct the movement of the civilian population or individual civilians in order to attempt to shield military objectives from attacks or to shield military operations.

          8. Any violation of these prohibitions shall not release the Parties to the conflict from their legal obligations with respect to the civilian population and civilians, including the obligation to take the precautionary measures provided for in Article 57

Mick and Paddy McGinty can’t cook and the fool @ #173 just doesn’t know when she has been trolled. I would wager that they overboil all that seafood even now. Scotch food, like Oirish food consists of deep-fried Mars bars and potatoes. You can’t have it both ways luv.

      Anyway, it’s tiem to dispense of both Oirish and Scotch. Let them both do their own thing IRA/UDA/UDF thing on their soil so that I don’t have to give a shit about it. Scotch oil has almost run its course anyway. Time for government to cut back on spending in Scotch.

        To invoke the “illuminati” as one of the causes of all our troubles, is to shift blame from ourselves, who were asleep when we ought not to have been, say after 1989 when the real-enemy had just gone cleverly to ground while pretending to be defeated, and onto some sort of other-world/superhuman organisation which does not exist, and is a convenient repository for all the ills that you can’t put your finger on right this second but would like to.

    I don’t agree with you there, Guido, you’re bringing up stuff with a remarkable bias to it.

    I studied in Glasgow, and well remember Celtic fans celebrating at matches when soldiers were killed “Ah, Ah, up the ‘RA” (IRA) , seeing the “Bullet for the Boys” collecting tins doing the rounds, and the most vile, bigoted chants and songs about the Queen and the Royal family.

    So keep it in perspective, if you are going to bring this up, do it both ways.

    So, what about all the money spent on new Catholic schools in Scotland, while the non Catholic children are shunted into the decaying remnants of what’s left ?

    The Catholic Mafia have it well under control in Scotland, and continue the bigotry by seperating the children at birth and not allowing integration, and brainwashing them to believe all of their problems are caused by people picking on them for being Catholic.

Look at the Irish Constitution you muppet.If you have an Irish parent/grandparent you are considered to be Irish.Unlike in England where if your children/grandchildren are born abroad they do not have an automatic right to a British passport.We give out passports to some very objectionable people,yet we don’t look after our own.

        I think it unlikely that Romanians are granted asylum now they have joined the EU. It did happen prior to this but not once they became members. After all how could a country be allowed to join the glorious union of it persecuted it’s own people? I think the reality is more likely they have set up shop in Belfast and now claim they are destitute. That way the local authority has a legal obligation to house them. This I would suggest is the more likely explanation.

    Rangers are a perfectly legal football club. It is not illegal to support them.

    The Red Hand of Ulster appears on the official flag of Northern Ireland, a constituent part of the United Kingdom. It is not illegal to display it.

    The Union Flags on the walls are the official flag of this country and used regularly and repeatedly by the Labour Party in its attempts to garner the votes of racists in the North of England.

    Bercow, in other words, visited a perfectly legal football supporters’ club where a number of completely national symbols were on display.

    Where, may I ask, is the great offence here? I know that most “British” Catholics are more hostile to this nation than Al-Qaeda could ever be and I know that most “British” Catholics laugh uproariously at the idea that they should obey the laws and support the constitutions of the nation in which they live but, really, isn’t it taking things just a wee bit too far to basically demand that anyone who’s ever been in the vicinity of a Union Flag or who’s ever watched a Rangers match should be held persona non grata?

    1. Christianity is a heap of bullshit, as is any religion. The more enlightened religious types who see religion as being neccessary as some kind of ‘sweetener’ are contemptuous of humanity.
    2. Catholicism is the worst kind of Christianity. You have stupid hierarchies and bestow trust to those that should be locked away.
    3. The “Catholics can never renounce their religion, but only become bad Catholic” idea is retarded. Read some books and try and insert some rationality into your views.

    Nadine: Someone attacked my patio furniture says:

    The ██████ backbencher Nadine Dorries said today that her home had been vandalised and she had received threatening messages in the wake of the MPs’ ██████████ scandal.

    Dorries, the MP for ██████████ – who previously claimed the pressure caused by the row could drive MPs to take their own lives – said patio furniture had been smashed and her ██████████ had been left “huddled, shivering wrecks”.

    Question : has Brown ever looked like he was wearing clean and ironed clothes?

Don’t let anyone believe their bleatings about being ‘impartial and free from government interference’.

        Let’s hope the Irish don’t fall for their exclusion terms. The changes do pander to the least educated, however.
        If they do then the Tories will need to come off that fence pretty quickly and with a heavy hand.

      Seth the pig farmer says:

      At the time of the rejection by the Irish, it was suggested that the treaty could be legally amended under clauses in the treaty itself without the need for re-ratification in the other states. Obviously the logic of this is apparent only through the prism of the EU.

      Ideally for the EU the guarntees to the Irish would be deemed part of the treaty but by only affecting the Irish, do not affect the other nation states, therefore again no re-ratification would be needed. This would certainly be subject to legal challenge in Eire and probaly in the UK. Luckily the constitutional court in Eire is a bit more independent than the supine judges in the UK.

      In any event, by allowing any modification to the Lisbon Treaty, a new front is opened up. Given the recent votes in the EU elections, even with Cowan’s plan, acceptance is by no means guaranteed in Eire.

      For freedom loving democrats everywhere, we need to have a general election prior to the Irish re-vote. With a Tory Government we can expect a referendum on Lisbon, but we can see them wavering already if the Irish vote has gone through as “Yes”.

      If the Irish can get a second bite of the cherry, then why not us.

    The UVF didn’t stand for any shit from those Gypo’s selling drugs and running a pick pocketing racket in Belfast.

    The national presses turn it into a humanitarian sympathy story about the Romanian kids which yes admittely have done nothing wrong and don’t deserve that kind of abuse as their only children.

    BUT

    It doesn’t excuse or give the parents fresh from the bananna boat the right to be claiming benefits and houses from the poorest part of ireland with some of the poorest citizens and then running a drugs cartel & theivery racket with said benefit money and said houses given by the good natured and good willied tolerant Irish people.

    All the bleeding heart liberals should house the Gypo’s in their house and let them run their drugs cartels from your address and then we’ll see how ”racist” and untolerant the boyo’s where.

      Uddin's Marble Palace says:

      A LABOUR baroness who lives in low-cost social housing has a palatial family holiday mansion overseas.

      Baroness Uddin lives in a three-bedroom house in Wapping, east London, which is heavily subsidised because it is intended for people who cannot afford to buy property in the area.

      However, for almost a decade her husband Komar has also owned the mansion in Bangladesh, which is decorated with Italian marble and bears a crest similar to that of the House of Lords on its gates.

      Link

      There’s a nice photo of the marble mansion in the article. It makes Anthony Steen’s place look quite small and dingy. A house fit a for Romanian dictator in fact.

    Among the receipts submitted were ones for jellied eels, Pot Noodles, pork pies, Scotch eggs and even Farley’s rusks.

    In total, MPs spent £1.197 million on food in 2007-08 – an average of £154 a month for every MP.

    The big claimers included Charles Clarke, the former Home Secretary.

    He has long been known as one of the most enthusiastic gourmands in Westminster, having once famously eaten two pizzas in a single evening.

      Far away in the tropical waters of the Caribbean , two prawns were swimming around in the sea

      One called Justin and the other called Christian.

      The prawns were constantly being harassed and threatened by sharks that inhabited the area.

      Finally one day Justin said to Christian, “I’m fed up with being a prawn;
      I wish I was a shark, and then I wouldn’t have any worries about being eaten.”

      A large mysterious cod appeared and said, “Your wish is granted”

      Lo and behold, Justin turned into a shark.

      Horrified, Christian immediately swam away, afraid of being eaten by his old mate.

      Time passed (as it does) and Justin found life as a shark boring and lonely.

      All his old mates simply swam away whenever he came close to them.

      Justin didn’t realize that his new menacing appearance was the cause of his sad plight.

      While swimming alone one day he saw the mysterious cod again and he thought perhaps the mysterious fish could change him back into a prawn.

      He approached the cod and begged to be changed back, and, lo and behold,
      he found himself turned back into a prawn.

      With tears of joy in his tiny little eyes Justin swam back to his friends and bought them all a cocktail.

      Looking around the gathering at the reef he realized he couldn’t see his old pal.

      “Where’s Christian?” he asked.

      “He’s at home, still distraught that his best friend changed sides to the enemy & became a shark”,
      came the reply.

      Eager to put things right again and end the mutual pain and torture, he set off to Christian’s abode.

      As he opened the coral gate, memories came flooding back.

      He banged on the door and shouted, “It’s me, Justin, your old friend, come out and see me again.”

      Christian replied, “No way man, you’ll eat me. You’re now a shark, the enemy,
      and I’ll not be tricked into being your dinner.”

      Justin cried back “No, I’m not. That was the old me. I’ve changed.”………

      The Doctor shouted to them, “I’ve never seen such poor golf!”

      so we always let them play for free, anytime they want to.”

      The group fell into an embarrassed silence for a moment.

      Then the Priest said, “That’s so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight.”

      The Doctor said, “Good idea. I’m going to contact my ophthalmologist colleagues and see if there’s anything they can do for them.”

      The Businessman replied, “I think I’ll donate $350,000 to the Fire Brigade Benevolent Fund in honour of these brave souls..”

    Pissed to the point of exhaustion says:

    Let me get this right.

    MP’s have claimed for non existent mortgages. They have said as much, but claim it was an “error”. The evidence for these crimes is in the public domain.

    So what is there to investigate?

    Haul the fuckers in and give them a shakedown. THAT IS WHAT WOULD HAVE ALREADY HAPPENED FOR ANYONE ELSE.

    Put them in a court of law and see if a jury believes that the claims were an error.

    End of story.

        Engineer says:

        Don’t you believe it – there’s lots going on. There’s the infastructure of the country to maintain and run (and update). There’s all that electricity and gas you lot all consume to be generated, transmitted and delivered, and there is still quite a lot of manufacturing about – a lot of it high-tech, high quality stuff, where we can compete on the world market. Think Rolls-Royce aero engines, JCB construction equipment, for starters.

        Yes, it’s been tough for quite a few years, but the firms that have survived are lean, highly productive and often commercially savvy on the global stage. We need to build on that foundation, which will take time because you can’t build a decent company quickly, and finding good staff at all levels is a problem. There is no room in modern industry for half-educated numpties, so you can see a skills shortage hampering the recovery when it finally happens (thanks Nulab for an incredibly short-sighted education policy).

        Another bit of good news – we’re starting to win work back from China, in the foundry sector at least. Reasons? Better technical quality and consistency, faster turn-rounds, much lower transport costs. Too early to call it a green shoot, but it’s a start!

        Not all of that £300 million would have been illegal claims of course, but you don’t have to be a maths genius to see that even a small percentage of £300 million is an awful lot of stolen money, and would almost certainly be bigger than the biggest ever robbery in the UK of just £24 million.

    The Hula Hoop ad has reminded me of an incident about 20 years ago. I was at a reception in the House of Commons with my sister and a friend of hers. My sister and her friend were competing to see how many Hula Hoops they could get on their fingers when in walks Geoffery Howe (who was in Maggie’s cabinet at the time) and introduced himself. My sister could not turn down the proffered hand and, as there was a quizzical look on Howe’s face and broken Hula Hoops fell to the floor, I thought he must have a fairly firm haandshake.

    More seriously is it not possible that a deal was done behind closed doors not to ditch him but let him resign in his own time with dignity.

    Brent South today, Soweto tomorrow says:

    How about Broon appoints a senior barrister to investigate the expense claims of our Ambassadors and Commissioners around the world? At the same time he could investigate whether they are excessively remunerated or are provided with living accommodation that is more luxurious than necessary. He could even look into whether there are people who would gladly do these jobs for free, and do them better, whilst considering it an honour to represent their country abroad rather than as an ego trip round a gold-plated trough. He could report specifically on where the appointment of someone has proved to be an egregious embarrassment to the nation, rather than an asset, and in particular where any diplomatic spouse has screamed insults at the natives, behaved generally like an ill-kempt prostitute and been deported as a result.

    But where would we find a barrister to take on this task? Surely all comptent, charming barristers are already gainfully employed? None are likely to be kicking their heels listening to Herman the Tosser on their iPod whilst waiting for a job offer.

    (On reflection, maybe not so surprising given the IRA cozied up to, and received financial and military backing from the Nazis…)

    Mcmentals whole life has been the pursuit of power by trampling on others and stamping on the faces of fellow greasy pole climbers when needed, he uses others and throws them away like we would use a milk carton, he would strangle his fucking beard for one more day of power!

    The mental defective set up a fake unsustainable boom when he was chancellor with the sole intention of helping his rise to the PMs post, he timed the false boom to coincide with his planned coup against Bliar.

    Brown has schemed his way into No10 using every dirty dishonest trick that his perverted mind could invent and used his ugly henchmen without mercy to smash his enemies and he is doing it even as I write this.

    Several threads worth following, but the one that caught my attention under the heading ” Arrogance ” was the bit about the EU elections.

    ……..under existing European law, that is to say, the Nice Treaty, will have 736 seats. But the euro-elites are manoeuvring to make the voters elect 754 MEPs – that is, to elect an extra 18 politicians to the lushly-paid parliament, even though these politicians will have no seat to fill……

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”
