Cameron Learns That You Can’t Always Get What You Want

The Prime Minister won’t be Dancing in the Street at Davos today. Proving he is not a Slave to anyone, or Under the Thumb, Mick Jagger has pulled out of a planned appearance with Dave, citing over-politicisation. You can Almost Hear Him Sigh, and Cameron will hope this scandal will just Fade Away. Time Waits for No One and Jagger was told to Take It or Leave It. 

With the meeting Slipping Away, the PM Can’t Get No SatisfactionIt’s All Over Now, but Guido doubts this is The Last Time a celebrity Sittin’ on a Fence will leave a politician stuck  between A Rock and a Hard Place. Or is that Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me)?

    I thought Jagger was dead?

    Get Off My Cloud Dave!

    He can’t get no satisfaction.

    Ed cant get no statisfaction!

    Tuscan Tony says:

    Will Dave complete the set by inserting a Mars Bar deep into Marianne Faithfull’s fundament?


  10. 10
    Cynical-old-bag says:

    Good on Mick! He doesn’t need the aggro, or the work.

    What I’d really like to know is who was going to pay for this?

    Ed Miliband says:

    I haven’t had a nosth job and I’m not a clueleth plonker.

    Not so much “move it like jagger”, more swimming like Brian Jones.


  14. 21
    The Sleeper says:

    Who gives a shit?

    Jagger has been long exposed as a middle class opportunist who latched onto the idea of being in a ‘working class’ band…as it would give him more street cred.

    Desperate Dan says:

    That’s what happens when you employ over-excited blabbermouths to liaise with the press.

    Just ain’t no satisfaction.

    If these jokers could get the economy right, we could see the return of factory girls

    jgm2 says:

    Let us all bask at the delicious knowledge that just as the UK was recording negative growth the opposition publicly announced that they would not reverse the Tory ‘cuts’.

    A tactical faux pas almost on the same scale as Cameron proclaiming he’d match the Maximum Imbecile’s spending plans while behind the scenes Fred Go*od*win and Andy Hornby were begging for a few hundred billion in soft loans.

    Wild Horses couldn’t drag him to Davos.

    Having missed the job at the IMF I see Gordon is now pleading for another global position. He want’s a global education fund. Big job and world kudos for himself and his ghastly wife.

      A global education fund?

      Doing to global education what Labour did to UK education?

      Costs a fortune to turn out the most stupid 21 year-olds in history?

        Boudicca says:

        Up to their necks in debt because of tuition fees that Brown’s lot introduced.

          Loungelizard says:

          Don’t think Brown gives a shit about how much it costs or even if it achieves anything, all he wants is a fancy title and the rest of us to be impressed.

        Desperate Dan says:

        You’re wrong there. They’ve all got qualifications in media studies, camping on private land, holocaust studies and telling lies..

    Well after all he is a man of wealth and taste.

    I like eating Brown Sugar — especially that of Wild Horses.

    Gordon Brown says:

    I sit and watch, as tears go by.

    Desperate Dan says:

    Cameron and Osborne should pull out of Davos as well. Its going to be a gathering of third-rate and failed Labour politicians.

      Desperate Dan says:

      And their sleazy paymasters.

      Mando Lynne says:

      Get real guys

      Mick has at least got a degree in economics, and he definitely earns more than Cameron and probably has trousered more dosh than those boys will ever see.

      My guess is if they asked Mick to sort out the economy, Keith could sort all the export market from Colombia and the golden triangle, and Ronnie well, what a star he’s your man for the Arts and Media when he’s around and not shagging some 20 year old strumpet.

      Jobs a good un

        Iirc, Jagger got his A-Levels, which back in the day would have been to a standard that surpasses modern so called degrees.


  27. 55
    Desperate Dan says:

    Mick probably realised he’d be an odd man out at Davos – the only person there who’d earned his fortune by his own honest toil.


  28. 56
    Mark says:

    Like a football Jagger should be given a good kicking.

    Poor Dave. Jagger met with me once, we went to Paint it Black together #blackpower

    Dave looks like Pete Rinaldi from Hot Leg with that hair.

    Your citing of Stones tracks belies the undisputable fact they haven’t done a decent album since the early seventies. Ditto every other pensionable idiot on the rock scene today.
