How the Mighty Fall

There have been all sorts of suggestions, mostly unprintable, about the shiner on Ken Clarke’s forehead that was noticed in his copious media performance today. It wasn’t Dave’s mobile phone but apparently he tripped up in Speaker’s Court.

Insert gag about a reshuffle here.

      He’s converted to islam and has been hitting the prayer mat – literally!

      Look out for the “prayer mat bump” on the foreheads of all those “secular & moderate” (according to Al-jabeeba) demonstrators in the middle-east.

    It’s a bindi.

    “The area between the eyebrows (where the bindi is placed) is said to be the sixth chakra, ajna, the seat of “concealed wisdom”. According to followers of Hinduism, this chakra is the exit point for kundalini energy. The bindi is said to retain energy and strengthen concentration. It is also said to protect against demons or bad luck.”

    Who wants to talk about Ken Clarke?

    I have something else to say.

    Politicians who espouse closer integration to the EU are bastards, they probably have very dirty habits, and although they push their case they know full well that the majority of the people they represent are agin it.

    So in addition to the above, they are evil and probably have smelly breath.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”



Mycroft says:

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!
