No Post-Conference Brown Bounce

Friday Caption Competition

Routledge Menances Randy Marr

The only paper still unswervingly loyal to the Prime Mentalist is The Mirror.   This morning the paper’s Old School Labour hack, Paul Routledge, rants

marr_pillsBBC presenter Andrew Marr was out of order, demanding to know, on live TV, whether the Prime Minister is taking anti-depressants – merely on the basis of unsubstantiated internet gossip that had been officially denied.

He has refused to apologise. He should think again – or some scandalmonger might start spreading rumours about his interesting private life, which he guards with the tenacity of a Staffordshire bull terrier.

Too late Routledge, that scandal was mongered yonks ago

RAF Blonde Bombshell Mocks Gordon Brown’s Leadership

A month after Gordon Brown appeared at the International Institute for Strategic Studies (on the day Eric Joyce resigned)  he was followed yesterday by General Stanley McChrystal, the US commander in Afghanistan.

General McChrystal called for the war to be prosecuted  vigourously with more resources.  Flight Lieutenant Victoria Anderton told the general

A ‘senior Conservative party official’ passes judgement on Theresa May:

“She is boring. A technocrat. She is Philip Hammond with a fanny. Not interesting, but rendered interesting by circumstance. And that circumstance is that she is a woman. And in an age when the Prime Minister gets it in the neck for refusing to wear a fucking T-shirt that says he is a feminist, that is a rocket boost right underneath you.”



Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
