    Why does Michelle Obama think that her being first lady is an achievement? All it means is she married a man who managed to buy the Presidency, how is that an achievement?

    Climbing Everest is an achievement, walking on the Moon is an achievement, being first lady is not

    Ed Moribund says:

    Progressive multiculturalism should be waffle waffle and interwoven into our DNA. Hard-wiring fairness into our constitution and blah blah blah. Investing in education yadda yadda while opposing Tory cuts in inbalances and consensual majority drone etc.

    I am committed to blah blah blah. Public services and NHS stuff, Tories eat babies waffle drone using the Lib Dems as a human shield while thingy doodah. Lecturing pious indignant whine, more stuff about opposing evil Tories and buzzwords which did well at the focus group last night. Radical progressive majority giblets. Policy initiatives in 21st-century buzzwordism and islamic multicultural Britain without borders and integrationist ideologies. (Pause for applause)

    Everything we think is pure and good so everything everybody else must be evil and blah blah blah. Progressive this, progressive that and multi-cultural radicalism in Britain today while educating and brainwashing via the BBC which the forces of evil would dismantle. Prattling and preaching to the converted, simper whimper drone waffle buzzword and radical idealism stuff. Please let me be PM so I can make Ed Balls chancellor, we really won’t wreck the country again I promise. Go back to your constituencies and prepare an omelette. (Pause for standing ovation)

    Spank Sinatra says:

    Looks like the bearded git who believes in sky fairies managed to keep his mouth shut during the speech – a period of silence from that old fart is most welcome. And let us not forget that most religions seem predicated upon who gets to wear the biggest hat (eg Pope, Archbishop of Canterbury, Russian / Greek orthodox church etc…. Bugger theology, it’s all about hat size!

    And as gordon elbowed bliar out of the way and pushed himself forwards to make sure he was not ignored, omaha was thinking ‘OMG! not that ma ni ac again!’

    He’s just practising good time management. He’s heard these state speeches before – lots of diplomatic platitudes and false sincerity from all speakers.

    What about me, orange Tony? Is it because I is not orange enough?

    BTW – if you have red wine at lunch you need a snooze around 4-ish, so don’t knock Ken too much. He’s a great public servant even if he harbours stone-age views and is unable to put a sock in it until spoken to by Big Dave.

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.”
