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.

      The BBC scaremongering as usual says:

      It’s a figment of your imagination..they obviously meant to say they were AGAINST the cuts.Meanwhile try our “You be Chancellor Web Page…” for the REAL horror of the TORY cuts

        Down with Brown! says:

        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.

      GrimeLord says:

      I can’t believe that I pay my license fee and this informtaion is buried away as though it is unsuitable for me. I appriciate that its not a main story but it is important given the fact that cuts are due.

    I’ll be make a statement to the house on this and other matters later this afternoon, thank you.

    Yippee! Wogan in greed is just around the corner. Please give generously from what’s left over of the license fee you already paid to fund his £1300 per hour fee – he says its for a good cause.

      Susan Summer says:

      I like the way that Sir William chose the picture for the caption contest on Wednesday 13th, honed his one-liner to perfection for two days, posted said piccy and was then able to resist the urge to unleash his masterpiece on an unsuspecting world for a good few hours.
      Call me a cynic and that etc.

        genghiz the kahn says:

        Mike Smithson had others at Political Betting had flagged the picture up. I don’t think Sir William of Waad had anything to do with the selection of the photograph.

        It was a cracker.

    Crudity says:

    Oh fuck, if i’d have know that the notorious tight waad Fawkes was actually going to break with historical precedence and come up with a prize, I would have tried harder to disassociate politicians from shit!

      Two Dogs of Empiricism says:

      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.

      • 66

        Just awarded it because it was funny, you are possibly even more paranoid than Guido.

          Deep Who says:

          Waad did two rubbish postings at 1.35 and 1.36. I did a posting at 3.30ish – Ok not as elegant as his exact words but nonetheless bringing up the broom and dust line. He regurgitates it at 3.44 and wins. Total fix.

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.”
