    Ain’t no sound but the sound of his feet, machine gun’s ready to go
    Are you ready? Hey, are you ready for this?
    Are you hanging on the edge of your seat?
    Out of the doorway the bullets rip to the sound of the beat, Yeah
    Another one bites the dust
    Another one bites the dust
    And another one gone
    And another one gone
    Another one bites the dust
    Hey, I’m gonna get you too
    Another one bites the dust

    How do you think I’m gonna get along without you when you’re gone?
    You took me for everything that I had and kicked me out on my own
    Are you happy? Are you satisfied?
    How long can you stand the heat?
    Out of the doorway the bullets rip to the sound of the beat (Look out)
    Another one bites the dust
    Another one bites the dust
    And another one gone

    ciasmaninlondon says:

    Thirty years ago I was in Washington and the Reagan Republicans were frantic to promote some Uncle Toms as front men for political positions. After several fiascos with guys who had failed to file income tax returns for yonks and one who was caught fiddling his expenses big time a reaganite asked me ‘ can’t we find just one honest one?’ UK follows the US with a lag.

  26. 26
    Hugh Janus says:

    I am greatly excited by this news Billy, but haven’t the slightest clue who he is – but in your case probably sport-related? My knowledge of matters sporting is on a par with McBust’s knowledge of economics (yes, it’s as dire as that) so apologies. No doubt you will enlighten me.

  27. 27

  47. 47

  48. 48
    Wonga says:

    Castrate the twat, and lock him up and throw away the key! No we can’t do that in this enlightened age,….. A good punishment will be sending him to the naughty corner and ban his sweetie ration for a week!! There, that should act as a strong deterrent to the rest of the thieving, lying scum that seem to not represent us!!

  59. 59
    Colour does matter on here says:

    with the knuckle dragging racists it attracts.

    don’t bother denying it, this place is stiff with bigots, the only consolation is that they pretty much hate everyone

    (except of course middle aged white overweight men with a chip on their shoulder about not accomplishing much with their lives.

    that gets you a free pass.)

    Look at Lord Clarke of Hampstead

    He did exactly the same thing, admitted it and got off
    with a light reprimand…

    What bloody hypocrisy…

  74. 74
    Tessa Tickles says:

    That sets a reasonable legal precedent for action against Gordon Brown – providing he doesn’t try to put the bribe on expenses.

  75. 75

    Me too.

  76. 76

  91. 91
    Eeu to me says:

    10 min show on all channel apologising to the taxpayers of this country followed by a ritual tearing up of his cheque book and debit and credit cards after a televised competion winner watches a judge sign over all the miscreants money to the winner,but with a compromise,if the person is an incomer from another country he is allowed to have a single airfare and a £1000 out of his own money to go back to his birth country,but may never return to this country on the pain of life in jail.

    I think you are probably right. It would be fair enough if two years meant two years but since our politicians cannot be 100%sure of which of might be next …

    Lordy Lord says:

    This is pure discrimination. No wimmen are standing trial.

  112. 112
    D.S. Gusted, Tunbridge Wells says:

    It was 11-1, so judge said he would accept a majority. Wonder who the one was?

  113. 113

    Claimed thousands for a flat which she never lived it.
    Designated it her first home.
    Obtained much more money than Taylor.
    Disappeared to the sub continent until the fuss blew over.

    Can you guess who it is yet ?

  134. 134
    Bleeding heart liberal says:

    There, but for the grace of the rulebook, go many others.

    Call himself a fucking lawyer? He couldn’t even arrange a simple scam within the free and easy system, but just fabricated evidence. And then to reinforce his imbecility, he resorts to the defence that everybody else was at it.

    What a c’unt!

    Making plans for Nigel says:

    Scotland didn’t get conquered by England. You tried it in 1314 and got defeated at Bannockburn. In fact a few hundred years later one of our Kings took the throne of England and we haven’t looked back. So no you can’t claim your £5 because your feeble grasp of history is shit. Go to the back of the class .

    Fukkk-in hilarious.

    While the whole of europe changed its borders, kingdoms came and went, nations formed for hundreds of years, you still go on and on about something almost 700 years ago.

    I never understood why that stupid looking rocket thing was actually built in the 19th century. I do now.

    “Men” is plural, the qualifying noun clause should read, “with chips on their shoulders”. If you wish to insult, try to be coherent. The release of immature chaotic anger does not lead to effective communication.

    She got an increased majority from her brain-fucked constituents. Just like Brown. And just like the Old and Sad constituency.

    Using their examples the T*ries should absolutely fuck the arse off the economy a la Zimbabwe to ensure their re-election. It seems that any amount of destruction and idiocy goes unheeded and unpunished.

    Cameron should just print million pound notes so that everybody can clear their mortgage. Sure, the economy would be fucked but everybody would be millionaire home-owners so they’d vote for that.

    Certainly never one to dispute BBC bias but Rd4 PM had Peter Reid on defending Andy Gray which was pretty cool. I dunno – jury split 10-2 sounds like the trial had a bit more entertainment than the mere narrative gives substance too. All good fun.

    Hugh ffishingly-Whittlingstool says:

    Some jurors are still unaware that the timidity of the CPS has effectively reversed the burden over proof over the years: anyone who gets to stand trial is as good as guilty; wasting taxpayers’ money on cases of uncertain merit has probably never been less popular .

    Once in the dock, it is incompetence which gets the manifestly guilty a second chance to get acquittal, through technical inadequacies in the prosecution case.

    The third joker in the pack is that a skilled and determined foreman can steer the jury towards a verdict of innocence by acting as an informal ‘counsel for the accused’.

    Finallyr, the presumption of innocence can be leveraged to shift bored or timid jurors towards acquittal.

    Stop being chippy Englishman, you have to learn to deal with the fact that your nation has no national identity and you were effectively conquered by The Scots in the 17th century.

    It’s strange how the skin-colour excuse surfaces.

    A mate of mine at work gained a new member of staff, a gentleman of Carribbean origin. My mate sat down with him, talked the job through, and asked for a particular piece of work to be done fairly urgently. A fortnight later, my mate checked progress, only to find that there was none. He blew a gasket. The Caribbean gentleman promptly went to higher management complaining of racial victimisation. Management, being shit-scared of the PC brigade, bollocked my mate.

    My mate wasn’t remotely racist before this incident, by by heck he was afterwards.

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
