The Baldwins Are Not All In It Together

One of the most annoying things about returning to the fray after a cheeky half-term is all the anecdotes and recommendations. According to Mrs Tom Baldwin, the Aosta Valley in the Italian Alps was the place to be for a mini-break last week. How was the powder?

    Ed Miliband’s cleaner earns a week what the Baldwins spend on their annual skiing holiday.

    I gather Times people take drugs. Is that why there’s a paywall?

    Gordon Brown says:

    I never took drugs. Or had sex with Miss Macauley.

    Rupert is giving his team just 6 days to get the Sun on Sunday up and running.

    And on the seventh day God put up his feet and read his copy of the Sun :-)

      Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

      Get out the old NotW templates and change the banner, headers and footers to Sunday Sun.

      Should take 6 minutes not 6 days. There’s probably already some grubby little porn addict rooting around in Twatson and Rusbridger’s bins.

    Funny, just heard some politician saying that the idea that they are all off on jollies during the recess is a myth, they are actually all hard at work catching up on the their constituents problems in the Italian Alps. What about the offspring?, not missing school during term time I hope.

    Sun on Sunday – Murdoch winner

    Those with an agenda against Murdoch – losers (Gordon Brown, Tom Watson, Chris Bryant, Guardian, Daily Mirror, the BBC).

    Old Grumpy says:

    I used to borrow my landlady’s bike and cycle up the Val d’Aosta……… in summer of course……….. Try riding up the back of the Matterhorn!……… hard work, but you can freewheel almost all the way back to Ivrea!……….wild ride!

    ALternatively, take a walk around the back of the station at Aosta and a cable car ride to the first stop-off. There’s a nice bar just across the road, with views of the Alps, from the Matterhorn to Mont Blanc and the Gran Paradiso over yer left shoulder……….. great beer as well………

    Snow! I hate snow!………. especially up my nose!

    Ed Miliband says:

    Happy birthday to you,Happy birthday to you, Happy birthday dear Gordon (daddy), Happy birthday to you.

    Sir William Waad says:

    “Tom Baldwin” sounds like one of those picaresque 18th-century novels: “Tom Baldwin; or, The Wages of Self-satisfaction” (in three volumes quarto).

    Courmayeur Blimey says:

    Baldwin said things were going downhill fast.

    Was he talking about his posh ski holiday or Ed Miliband’s career?

    misterned says:

    O/T So you support gay marriage?


    So far the politically correct pro-gay, attack the church, bigots are losing.

    For what it is worth, I agree with gay marriage, just so long as the ceremony is NOT performed in a church.

    Why do gays want to have a church wedding anyway?

    Will Satanists by demanding them next?

    I await the gay lobby to push to have gay weddings in Mosques. Hmmmm

    Gordon Brown says:

    Today I turn 61. But with my fiscal policy that has seen tractor production rise by 9854% in the third quarter, compounded by prudent indexing at a real terms growth rate of 54.1%, I am actually 26.

    It's true I tell ya says:

    A little later she tweeted. “Looking forward to my first sniff”

    I kid you not:

    Rebecca Nicolson @therebecca
    @HarrietEvans look forward to my first sniff

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

Alexrod says:

It’s money innit.
