Saturday Seven Up

7upAt the beginning of the week Oliver Letwin put his foot in his mouth, again, telling Boris Johnson that: “We don’t want more people from Sheffield flying away on cheap holidays”. It looked like a disastrously out of touch gaffe as millions of “squeezed middle” swing voters prepare to go on their cheap annual holiday away from austerity. David Cameron inadvertently provided the perfect rebuttal by flying away on a cheap Ryanair flight. On Thursday this blog’s readers saw him pictured with Sam looking grumpy in a way that fellow cattle class travellers will recognise.  On Friday it was front page news around the world…

Political hacks agreed it was the best PR Cameron had got in months. Sceptical media cynics reckoned it was too good to be true and that it was a Downing Street inspired photo-op, BBC and Sky hacks speculated that it was a set-up and even admired the cleverness of the user-generated-content style camera phone shot. Somewhat flattering Craig Oliver’s abilities…

    What question? The BBC says:

    I don’t think there is a video. BBC News covered all of their man’s speech and even stayed to hear him take questions even though that took them through the top of the hour. (something they would never have done for Cameron)

    At first it all went well for their man but suddenly a traitor in the audience asked Red Ed why Labour did sweet FA to cut red tape for business during their three terms in office. The rotter even tried to help Ed by suggesting most of the regulations that hinder business come from the EU. This was obviously too delicate a subject for the BBC to broadcast so they cut away from their man’s unease and back to the studio to read the news headlines.

    So the question on Red Ed’s business experience was never aired.

    genghiz the kahn says:

    Former Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy, 51, has been hit with a £50 fine after being caught dropping cigarette ends in a street in Glasgow city centre.

    The Ross, Skye and Lochaber MP was approached by a warden outside Glasgow Central Station on Thursday. An onlooker, who did not want to be named, took photographs of the incident on his mobile phone.

    He said: “He’d been puffing at the entrance for about half-an-hour while chatting away on his mobile phone.

    “He stood in the one spot and must have smoked four fags – each time letting the dog-end fall on to the pavement beside him.

    “But the council litter patrol was keeping a good eye on him to see if he was going to leave them there.

    “And once he started to walk away, they pounced.

    “He wasn’t happy because I was standing there taking pictures, but I said to him, ‘it’s a public place Charles, I have got the right to take pictures.

    “You have got to accept your punishment. You are not above the law’.”

    Mr Kennedy was targeted by anti-litter wardens from the city council’s Clean Glasgow campaign. They are under orders to hit anyone caught dropping rubbish with an on-the-spot penalty.

    The witness added: “Mr Kennedy tried to talk his way out of it, but the litter warden was having none of it.

    “He should know better. Politicians like him are always preaching to us to obey the law.”

    “David Cameron inadvertently provided the perfect rebuttal by flying away on a cheap Ryanair flight.”

    Hahahahahahahahahaha!!!

    He “inadvertantly” set up this tacky public relations stunt did he ?

    Did perfect Dave inadvertantly choose to fly by Rayanair and inadvertantly choose a cheap hotel while Craig Oliver inadvertantly leaked the entire wheeze to the telegraph leaving only you inadvertantly publish the art for the rest of the tabloids to front page the story ?

    Pull the other fucking one chum.
    We all know call me Dave is famous for being a public relations twat.

    If Blair did this you wouldn’t have stopped laughing at how amateurish it all was, but then Blair didn’t pay you did he ?

    Never mind, if you’re a very good boy and give Dave more “perfect” PR guff you might get another nice doggytreat.

    You might inadvertantly get leaked pics of call me ordinary Dave buying chocolate eggs for the kids in Tescos at easter from Craig Oliver, sorry, your ‘co-conspirator’.

    You can flog them off for some easy money too and have another astonishing scoop to join your Dave sits in an airport shocker.

In a Ryanair departure lounge.

    Starkey is absolutely correct about the state Labour Governments leave office in but it won’t change the outcome of the next election. It’s a countdown and you can only hope they do the damage you want them to in time. The police won’t help the nasty party when it kicks off. They don’t seem to have helped much so far.

    However, you should perhaps seek medical help if he’s still your main man every time he waxes wankical about an American way of life that never ever lived up to its billing nor exists now [except maybe in the deluded minds of the cloistered circles he lives in] or when he uses his own personal history of Britain to expose himself as a incredibly bitter and mean spirited human.

    The jock mong had to put aside the very competition rules that allowed the Lloyds takeover to go ahead, that was the MONGS decision and now I bet the BBC will try to pretend the mong had nothing to do with it. Expect Peston to spin some other load of bollocks.

    No I have to disagree with you, Baron Prescott is right to insist that the police investigate thoroughly any allegations of Criminality.

    I trust he will also support me in my allegation that certain ministers in the last Labour administration committed the criminal offence of Misconduct in public office.

    Recent cases involving lowly police officers have established that shagging whilst on duty, even during your lunch hour is an offence worthy of imprisonment.

    With that in mind will the Baron, for that is his title, agree that it is even more important that Government ministers be held to account for the same misconduct.

    We could begin by looking at Former home Secretary David Blunket whom you may recall, left office according to Mr Blair, with his integrity intact.

    What about NIgel Griffiths who allegedly used his house of commons office to shag a woman who was not his wife and may or may not have been a prostitute on Remembrance day.

    You know the day we remember that young lads and lassies who have been killed defending our country on the orders of politicians.

    And not forgetting errrrr John “Baron ” Prescott, whom according to one witness who was not his wife , regularly fucked her during office hours when he was a Government minister and she was his employee. .

    Yes John the Police should look at that as well should they not !!!!!!!

    A video clip of the act, leaked to the Observer and passed immediately to South Wales police, provoked fierce criticism from the government.

    A statement from the Home Office said: “The government absolutely condemns the burning of the Qur’an. It is fundamentally offensive to the values of our pluralist and tolerant society.

    Smokestack El Morocco's granny's ratatouille says:

    2 Aubergines
    2 courgettes
    2 poivrons (1 rouge, 1 vert)
    3-4 tomates
    1 bel oignon ou 4 petits oignons frais
    10 olives noires dénoyautées
    3 gousses d’ail
    thym
    Half a kilo of rat poison
    sel, poivre
    6 cuillères à soupe d’huile d’olive

    Préparation :

    Laver les légumes, couper les aubergines et les courgettes en tranches un peu épaisses (1 cm) dans le sens de la longueur et sans les éplucher.

    Détailler ensuite ces tranches en bâtonnet de la même épaisseur (1 cm)
    Couper ensuite ces bâtonnets de façon à vous retrouver avec des petits cubes de légumes.

    Vider les poivrons de leurs graines.
    Les tailler en lamelles puis en morceaux (1 cm) pour vous retrouver avec des morceaux de forme à peu près identiques à ceux des courgettes et aubergines.
    Procéder de la même manière pour les tomates.

    Au final, vous vous retrouvez avec pleine de petits cubes de légumes.

    Trancher finement l’ail et les olives noires.
    Détailler en petits morceaux l’oignon (ou les oignons frais avec le vert), puis mettre l’huile d’olive dans une sauteuse et faire revenir tous les légumes à feu moyen.

    Saler, poivrer, ajouter le thym et faire mijoter à feu doux, couvert, 20 min en surveillant que cela n’accroche pas.

    Servir chaud (accompagné tout simplement d’œufs au plat).

    Bon appetite mon braves!

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
