Guy News: Dave at the Footie

The New Statesman are constantly trying to paint Dave as too posh for football and completely ignorant of the beautiful game. Today they have even gone so far as to claim that this video isn’t of him. Guido calls them on this unfounded smear:

Given that the chap next to Dave in the video bears a remarkable similarity to the former Tory treasurer Jonathan Marland, now a peer, it seems certain to Guido that it really is Dave.  Throw in the emerging bald spot and it would seem the Staggers are yet again making it up for political purposes. Nice try.

Given the extent of the lobbying job Dave is undertaking in Zurich it seems pretty likely that the PM is nowadays a genuine England fan. After his Blairesque speech to FIFA England have gone favourite at the bookies...

      Yes, Dave really loves the ballfoot game and was always playing it with the oiks when he was at Eton.

            I can understand labour trolls wanking furiously to Ed Milibland, because labour supporters do have a lot to be furious with him over. He is doing his very level best to keep the coalition in power as long as possible after all.

            But to the liberal conservatives, Cameron is doing a marvellous job. I would think that they are wanking respectfully, but with great enthusiasm.

        As ‘Floreat’ below rightly says, football is much played at Eton. It’s rugby (union) that’s somewhat discriminated against because it’s an arriviste sport, best suited to merchants’ schools and the like. Association football – Eton’s first XI is called ‘The Association’ – is played as the main winter sport.

        Oikishness is one thing, ignorance is another.

        I’m prepared to speculate that you play – poorly – on the left wing.

          So he has to take it up the shitter from Clegg to stay PM.

          • misterned says:

            Brown’s Labour got even less votes than John Major’s tories in 1997 FFS!

            Cameron’s tories got more votes than Tony Blair in 2005.

            That shows it was not Cameron failing to beat labour. It was the corrupt gerrymandered electoral boundaries that gave labour a massive head-start and an automatic 10% lead in the number of seats. before a vote was cast, Or multiple postal vote in many cases.

            As soon as the electoral bias towards labour is removed, labour will never be in power again.

            Especially with the useless, ineffective, empty-headed, wingeing fuckwit milibland at labour’s helm doing everything he can to keep the coalition in office.

      Not if you want to host the world cup, no. As I understand it, (and I am very ignorant in matters of football) FIFA are the only governing body authorised to grant a world cup.

      I suppose football could go like Boxing and we could set up our own Brish World Football Council and hold our own world cup, making sure that we win it. France could do likewise and Italy, etc…. That way Brazil could keep the real world cup, but all these other footballing nations in Europe could all be world cup winners too.

      To be honest, I am quite surprised that labour did not have that as a policy.

          The Olympics is a very different proposition to a world cup. The vast majority of the infrastructure is already in place for a world cup, and so would cost a lot less than the Olympics to stage. The revenue streams are certain and there is a strong guarantee that the sponsorship and visitors from overseas will create a large amount of profit for this country.

          • The visitors do spend some money, to be sure, but they scare away the non-football hooligan tourists so it’s a zero sum game.

            As for the sponsorships – that’s how the FUFA fickers make their gelt now they can’t take backhanders. In SA nearly all the official sponsorship loot went into FIFA coffers not South African ones.

        We still have a big state – & it is getting bigger, taxes have risen & will rise even higher – taxing the productive side of the economy to feed the un-productive side, he has handed more power over to the EU, as well as billions more from the British taxpayers – tell me Billy, what is Conservative about Chameleon Daves record thus far in number 10?

        Nothing, thats what – which is why all Conservatives should move to UKIP.

      After they have posted the correct number of boring, deluded comments required by their ‘arse masters’, they get bummed as a reward. Hence the scatalogical posts.

      They’re all Conservatives! Repressed homos with a dominant mother fixation (Mrs T.)

      A classic case is Iain Dale.

      Do keep up!

    Osborne’s got the economy back on track, Dave’s thrashing Miliband and now there’s a chance of winning the World Cup against all odds. Superb.

        Who gives a fuck? Four and a half years to go and plenty of left wing public sector scum to be gotten rid of. With the changes in the constituencies and therefore the removal of the fiddled Labour majority the Cons will walk it. Just need to get rid of the postal voting scam now. Plenty of time…

        Latest Yougov Poll has tories 41% labour 38% libs 11%

        yeah, losing, lots… FFS!

        A prime example of “beyond new labour” maths at work, which is why labour left the coalition an annual deficit the size of a Black Wednesday …..happening…….every …..single ….week.

    that is Not Dave, not the Dave we all know so well. The Dave we love to bits. No. It’s not him. ‘Tisn’t. No. Definitely not him. Can’t be. Isn’t. Nope. He’s sitting in MY seat. Fuck me. It is him. Yes. It is. It’s him alright. Bounder!!

    The Other Bloke says:

    At least if England gets to host the Worls Cup we will be spared all the hype that surrounds all those “must win” qualifying games. We can cut straight to the bit where England loses.

    Now if gordon had been attending that football match he would have been sitting there is a suit, shirt and tie.

    I wonder what militwit would wear? But then I can’t see son of brown being interested in football, he’d be sitting there with that sneer on his face for which he’s becoming famous.

    Football is posh! says:

    Most people don’t realise how posh Association Football is.

    As this page makes clear, it has its roots in the most elite of public schools…

      David 'do not call me Dave' Cameron says:

      Oh, yes. Association Football is certainly the game of choice for the discerning gentleman. Indeed, one can trace the family links with this most noble of sports all the way back to one’s great-great-grandfather, William Webb Cameron, who first scooped the ball in his arms and ran hell-for-leather with it, thus giving rise to the new game of Eton Football *.

      * Later renamed Rugby Football to satisfy the working classes.

      Sir William Waad says:

      You can see that these were not the rules that were eventually established for football. This was an ex-public-school attempt at setting rules that were not widely followed; it pre-dates the split between football and rugby. The origins of the modern game lie far more in working-class players, who had to develop a game with less physical contact. The public schoolboys were bigger and better-fed than the working-class men, so a ‘rugby’ type game would have favoured the socially superior, and the working-class men could not afford to become injured. Eventually, the working-class game that relied more on skill than brute force prevailed, with the added result that football from an early date included professional players, entrance charges and leagues.

    Leaving aside the base politicking for a moment, one does have to wonder whether the English actually want the World Cup circus to descend upon them in 2018. Panorama may have raked over the decade old coals of FIFA’s institutional corruption, but they might have dome better to have examined the world body’s more recent behaviour.

    Thanks to FIFA, here in South Africa us wicked whities finally got to learn why our darker hued chums always complain about colonialism. The b’stards took over virtually everything including the local transport infrastructure, roads and traffic policing, even the damned judicial system. Quite frankly it was like being invaded.

    Small wonder a t-shirt popular during the contest bore the legend “Fick FUFA”

    “It is a pleasure to follow Andy Burnham, who knows a lot about his subject. Not only is he a football fan, he is quite an accomplished cricket player, as I discovered during a game this summer. Many of those who have spoken in the debate or have written about the subject are either lawyers or football fans, but I have to confess that I am neither”

    “Given that the chap next to Dave in the video bears a remarkable similarity to the former Tory treasurer Jonathan Marland, now a peer, it seems certain to Guido that it really is Dave.  Throw in the emerging bald spot”

    You couldn’t get more feeble evidence if you tried. Pathetic try

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.”
