Caption Contest Winner

Last Friday’s caption contest proved, once again, that the comment section is overrun scatological window-lickers, but there were one or two gems. The winner of Dennis Kavanagh and Philip Cowley’s comprehensive “The British General Election 2010″ is Sir  William Waad for:

“Gordon refused to do the housework, claiming that he had abolished broom and dust.”

Arise and email your address to Guido please Sir William…

        It got about two minutes mention on BBC 4 this morning pourned with scorn by the senile presenter snidely chipping a snarky comment on the various public sectors and sacred cows like the NHS, Local Councils, Army being more important before it was brushed under the carpet as well.

        I had to search hard on the Pravda website but I found it and Robert Preston wrote some shite at the end:

        http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-11561363

        BBC business editor Robert Peston says that Mr Osborne could not be happier that a group of influential people, such as the 35 business leaders, has at last come out and said they want him to make the deep public spending cuts that he has been promising.

        However, some people would point out that these bosses may be experts at running businesses but that does not make them experts at how best to manage the economy, our correspondent adds.

        Robert Peston said in his blog on the cuts that some of the signatories – such as Next chief executive Lord Wolfson and Paul Walsh of Diageo – were widely viewed as Conservative supporters.

        ——————————————————————————-
        Peston really is a total tool who is probably still sucking Gordon Brown’s tiny cock. Ian Livingstone of BT Group and Andy Bond signed the letter and they have both been Labour donors. Really crap argument to say that business leaders know nothing about Macroeconomics.

      He has only chosen to award WW with the prize so he can flush his identity out. Sir William is a very humourous man and is probably also the wealthiest person who posts here regularly. Given that I know there are at least 10 millionaires in the assembled company (not that this is a lot of dosh in this age), Sir W beats them all in net worth.

      Watch out, William, Guido is after your spondulics. Suggest you can afford not to claim the paltry reward, deserved though your effort is.

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
