And the Winner of the Caption Contest is….

drudge_obamaIf Matt could send his home address and his T-shirt size Guido we’ll see what we can dig out…

Drudge reckons ABC News is covering for Barack in this video report.  Guido thinks Obama is following that old proverb, “when in Rome do as the Romans do”.

Obama is just taking his cue towards the young lady from Silvio…

        Also, what’s with this new found penchant for announcing a winner and volunteering a prize? What about all those caption competitions where there have been some cracking captions but never a word heard from our lord and master, Herr Fawkes?

          Was thinking the same myself, cud this be proof that Guido has been perpetrating a competition scandal to rival GMTV and such like. Is it the case that posters were encouraged to enter even though they had no chance of winning ? Is it all the fault of the tories ? Can Nick Robinson spin it this way on Monday Morning and should Cameron resign ?

Did they not realize that they have Fuc-ed the world economy with the War and by government spending gone crazy. Lets lock as many people up for as long as possible and see if we can blow all the cash we nick of the private sector and the people. I am sure they will never notice while we build our paramilitary police force on the back of the Drugs business that we are allowing to flourish in Afghanistan with the USA puppet government in Charge. When will these clowns realize that it is government strategy that is burying Capitalism

      Obama looks up to Gordon as one of the greatest world leaders the modern world has ever seen. Brown’s knowledge of economics is second to none, which is why over the past twelve years Britain has prospered and under Labour has led the world in the fight for human rights and equality for all. Ieyasu Tokugawa united a broken Japan: Brown has done the same. Who knows, maybe in 200 years he’ll be considered one of the greatest Britons of all time. I think there’s a strong chance of that.

        True, Charles, but let’s not forget the Treasury’s role in all this. Can I just quickly say – and I believe I speak for the entire nation when I say this – we all owe a _tremendous_ debt to the Treasury for their handling of this economic crisis. I find it hard to see how we can ever repay them.

        Great leaders have great statues in their image or buildings or sometimes an event named after them.
        Nelson’s column. JFK airport. Columbus, Ohio.etc

        So far we have The “Gordon Brown pie stand at Raith Rovers”
        “The Gordon Brown Stockton on Tees, Durham slaughterhouse and cutting plant”
        “The Gordon Brown mini roundabout. {proposed for Ballymena, Antrim}”
        Gordoday. The first bank holiday in May. All shops and businesses close. Permanently.
        Or maybe Charles is right and in 200 years the BBCeu*will announce
        “Today is Brownout day. E-UK taxpayers have finally paid off the last instalment of the government debt from 2007-2011. Gordon Brown was a dysfunctional Prime Minister of the old United Kingdom. He was leader of the old Labour party in 2010. He lifted millions out of poverty into penury.
        Today he is chiefly remembered as the last leader of the labour party which ceased to exist in 2014 and the inventor of the 0% increase.

        In Scotland ‘Brownout day is still celebrated in the remote highlands when a virgin is taken to a weirdo crofters’ hut and left for the night with the occupant, under instructions to attend to his every desire.
        She is released bored, but unharmed, in the morning.

          Labour inherited an economy with a broken infrastructure and systemic failure waiting to happen. The infrastructure has been fixed under Labour and the systemic failure the CBI and the Tories opposed fixing all the way has exploded in our faces. A Labour landslide at the next election will give Gordon Brown the mandate to take on these forces of failure and corrosion.

          What a mess milliband made of his interview with J.Humphreys on radio 4 this am. Couldn’t make up his mind whether it was al Kaeda or terrorists we were fighting. Good interview on Today prog for a change. Milliband stuttering and stammering, why doesn’t he get his tin hat on and go over there to fight if he thinks the war is such a good thing! The Russians, I believe, lost c10.000 men in Afghanistan before they withdrew with their tail between their legs.
          We’ve been involved in Afghanistan unsuccessfully for c300 years. To begin with the government were constantly going on about obliterating the poppy fields. They seem to have changed that mantra now and like to insist that the war is to ‘keep us safe at home’! Do they know what they’re about at all?

          the answer to reforming our democracy is to vote for local reasonable candidates independent of any political parties.
          such people would only be accountable to their constituents and their own conscience. as they would not have to follow the party line such people would see things as they are and not as the parties would wish them to be.

    Under the conservatives you can expect Britain to slide closer to the Japanese model of jobs for life, crime to reduce to ten percent of current levels, and healthcare to be preventative by default. This should mean that Britain is a more productive, safer, and happier country within a generation.

  31. 157

    Conservatives:- Advancing Opportunity

    In our open and dynamic world, people’s horizons are broader, their ambitions are greater, and they expect to be able to make more and more decisions for themselves. Advancing opportunity means shifting power from the state to individuals and civic institutions, in order to open up this new world of freedom to everyone.

    Education is the key to opportunity and social mobility, making it a Conservative priority. We will deliver more teaching by ability in schools and revolutionise apprenticeships to open up avenues of aspiration for the next generation.

  32. 163

    Conservatives:- Nurturing Responsibility

    With opportunity comes responsibility. To make the most of the new world of freedom, we need to strengthen the structures which bring stability and a sense of belonging: home, neighbourhood and nation.

    A Conservative government will strengthen families by reforming tax and benefits to support marriage. We will strengthen communities by expanding the role of charities and social enterprises. And we will strengthen society with a welfare system that reinforces mutual respect and civility.

  33. 169


    Gordon Brown has left Britain’s economy ill-prepared for a downturn: he borrowed in a boom and left us with one of biggest budget deficits in the advanced world; he stripped the Bank of England of its powers to supervise the City; he actively encouraged the risk-taking culture in our banks; and he claimed to have abolished boom and bust.

    It is now vital that we restore stability to the British economy and responsibility to our public finances. Unfortunately, Brown’s economic mismanagement means we can’t offer big upfront net tax cuts like some other countries.

    But we can still help families and businesses right now.

    * We will freeze council tax for two years by reducing wasteful spending on advertising and consultancy in central government
    * We will introduce a £50bn National Loan Guarantee Scheme to underwrite
    bank lending to businesses and get credit flowing again
    * We will provide tax cuts for new jobs with a £2.6bn package of tax breaks to get people into work, funded by money that would otherwise go on unemployment benefit
    * We will cut the main rate of corporation tax to 25p and the small companies’ rate to 20p, paid for by scrapping complex reliefs and allowances
    * We will give small and medium-sized businesses a six-month VAT holiday, funded by a 7.5% interest rate on delayed payments
    * We will cut National Insurance by 1% for six months for firms with fewer than five employees, paid for from the above changes to the company tax regime
    * We will abolish Stamp Duty for nine out of ten first-time buyers and raise the Inheritance Tax threshold to £1 million. Both of these changes will be funded by a flat-rate charge on non-domiciles.

    To repair the broken economy in the long run, we need economic responsibility. That means:

    * A responsible fiscal policy, bolstered by independent oversight.
    * A responsible financial policy, bolstered by a renewed role for the Bank of England
    * A responsible attitude to economic development that fosters more balanced economic growth

    It is only the Conservatives that are offering real economic change.

I saw one old boy in his eighties hobble up to two young troopers and tried to give them twenty quid for a drink on him.

Then there was the poppy harvest and the related heroin trade – which all seemed to go quiet when Afghan farmers complained that they couldn’t make a living without it. Then there was the claims about Afghan girls now able to go to school, which is of course a good thing, but why do British troops have to lay down their lives to achieve it?

      If you want to know what Afghanistan is all about have a read of Halford John Mackinder’s “Heartland Theory”.


      “Who rules East Europe commands the Heartland;
      who rules the Heartland commands the World-Island;
      who rules the World-Island controls the world.”

      Our policy in Afghanistan (plus Iran and Pakistan) all about stopping Russia getting access to the Indian Ocean and to thwart efforts of China and Russia ruling the world. The war in Afghanistan is not meant to be won. As long as the area is destabilised it suits the West’s purpose.

    Duck Island Blue says:

    If a government is sending soldiers to war and death it has to command the support and trust of its people.

    In world wars this has been achieved by the formation of a National government, by suspending elections and by choosing leaders (Churchill, Lloyd George) whom a wide public respects and trusts. In such wars it has been difficult and often illegal for the public to debate the casus belli.

    Post world war conflicts are fought by the major powers under democratically elected single party governments. Elections are not suspended, public debate is ‘managed’ rather than banned, and, political parties are able (if reluctant in practice) to take opposing views on the need for the war and the method of its prosecution. Public protest is both permitted and widespread.

    These wider freedoms are two edged. On the positive side, the government waging war is more accountable to democratic debate, media scrutiny and public protest. It may be difficult to stop politicians starting bad wars but, over time, as in Vietnam and Iraq, they can be persuaded to end them. On the negative side, military strategy can be undermined by changes in political direction and serving combatants (and their families) can find themselves isolated by shifts in public opinion.

    Every British serviceman will tell you that they fight and die for “Queen and Country”. What this means is that they serve without regard for the political party in power and without questioning the political arguments for and against war. “Theirs not to reason why / Theirs but to do and die”.

    Nonetheless, for wars to be just and for the fallen not to have died in vain, there must be clarity of purpose and a shared understanding – a covenant – between the government, military and people.

    In the next few days, the bodies of eight soldiers will be returned from Afghanistan to Britain. Whatever the justification for the war in Afganistan, their families will have good cause to question whether this covenant has been broken.

    Mr Brown, you, like your predecessor, have blood on your hands.

      I tend to think the focus on policy and consensus is beginning to get some traction, and this pretty much causes the lurid claims and narrow DNA of self-selecting groups like the Tories to fade.

      My general view is that all parties have their issues, and the winners will be the ones who more closely mine the seam of reality. At the moment, I tend to think that party is Labour.

      Some people have commented on the need for more focus on industry and putting more money in the hands of the poor. labour is ahead of that curve. “Invest in loss” is exactly what’s needed.

      Crouching balance sheet, hidden asset. LOL

      How DARE you suggest Major took it up the “cone hotline” from Edwina resplendent donned with enormous black strap-on and pummelling him into submission while screaming, “Is this Back to Basics enough for you Johnny boy?!?!” as Major mumbled in his ecstatic monotone “Oh yes!”

      We could do without that kind of lurid implication here please.

    I’ve heard this story a few times now and it seems to sum up the crazy world we live in. Apparently when Broad Street was being developed in the City of London during construction the diggers hit what was supposed to be a burial mound, loads of bones and skulls etc possibly from the Great Plague. If that happens, all work has to stop and the find reported to the Museum of London or the British Museum so they can dig about and record the find.

    The story goes that a senior manager told the digger operative to carefully re-bury the bones, tell no one, so the development was not delayed and to make a garden ir grassed area at the location of the find.

    Anyone who uses Broad Street on a regular basis…have you seen a patch of green grass or a flowerbed. If so where is it and does it look out of place?

      Up in salford about 20 years ago a similar thing happened .whilst widening Chaple street .a corner plot of grass contained the bodys of some 12or 20,000 bodys from the plague these bodys were excavated with JCB’s and removed in skips to an old council depot where they were sorted out into fresh coffins by students from salford uni.just a case of two of these ten of them one of these etc some of the richer people were buried in lead lined coffins and they were still sealed. these coffins were opened after tests were done to see if the virus was still active . eventually all remains were reburied at agecroft cemetery.

    I have just read Jackboot Jacquis tear-jerking article in The Guardian.
    She is still banging on about the legitimacy of designating her sister’s spare bedroom as her primary residence.

    Surely the great office of Home Secretary would come with a grace and favour
    luxury residence,so why didn’t she doss down there?

    I am so so saddened by yesterdays losses in Afghanistan. God,when will it end.

      hoof-hearted says:

      Apparently, Jacqui chose not to live in her Grace and Favour apartment, choosing her sister’s back bedroom instead.

      What happened to the apartment I do not know, but other properties have been sub-let. Far more lucrative.

      This was her choice. She should have given the apartment back to the state and paid her sister out of her own pocket.

        Vote vote vote for Jacqui says:

        Thanks for that. If she had took up residence in a Grace & Favour there probably would have been no oppurtunity for financing the Redditch property.
        So there you have it. If she had lived in the appropriate property befitting her position there would have been no porno, no bathpug,no £500. sink and NO SACK.

    Dear fewqwer

    Thank you for your support, it is true that there are bastards in academia but I have also met really nice people.

    Professor Ian Hazlett, an old irish boy, my ‘spiritual’ advisor at University of Glasgow, total respect for this guy.

    That is an interesting site and thanks for sharing it with me.

    I like this quote;

    “Each time a person stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current which can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.” – Robert F. Kennedy

    Yours sincerely

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
