Trouble With the Mrs

After a long couple of weeks getting it in the neck from almost every angle, it looks like Dave hit the pub with the Mrs. Not just any boozer, an expensive one in Belgravia where the drinks cost eight pounds and dinner won’t leave much change from a hundred. And it seems it didn’t go very well:

Was the slow cooked Castle of Mey beef bavette, truffle potato, spinach & bone marrow jus not up to scratch? Or was it the eight point dip in Dave’s personal approval rating?

      It will not be too long before Sam & Dave will be seeing a pantechnicon arriving at Number 10 ready to collect their belongings.

      Time for a real Tory, not a Blu-Labour wannabee to take over the reins of power

            Vote UKIP, there is no point voting Tory anymore especially if you are a pensioner.

            BBC only let the main three plus Green have a debate over the London Mayor position. I thought the independent and UKIP candidates look much better. Once more, no impartial broadcasting at the BBC.

            Come on Guido, even you must see this as being very wrong.

        Anyway, must go! – got to see another very Very VERY WEALTHY client!

      Dave has lost the plot. What on Earth made him think that spying on every person, holding secret trials, marrying homosexuals and saving the Euro were sensible ideas?

        Angry of London says:

        The gay europhile stazi of Sh*tain, openly friendly to TROP but secretly terrified of anything that looks ‘different’ from the cosy occupants of their leafy suburbs or home-county ex-farms. Cameron was a (3rd rate) PR man. The gay stazi represent the only allowed media viewpoint in Sh*tain. Hence, Cameron does his best to please them. Sadly, the rest of us f*_cking hate the lot of it.

        The UK is becoming East Germany circa 1976 says:

        Cameron, like Blair and Brown before him, is merely an errand boy, an order taker, a junior local admin clerk. He like they, is the ‘acceptable’ face, of a very sinister movement and when his usefulness is passed, will be replaced by another smiling robot offering ‘change’ and a ‘better world’. Of course his replacement will change nothing and carry on taking orders and running errands.

      Maybe Dave told her that he intends rowing back from all that climate change shite. She of the Long Face let him know that Daddy would not be best pleased if his windmill subsidy of over a million a year, paid by the sweat of ordinary working men and women, were to disappear.

          Pretentious publican, I expect. “The Furniture Van” doesn’t sound quite the same. Belgravia bollocks. OTH, “Panopticon” might be a better name for Dave’s Big Surveillety.

    Dave's one of us says:

    Must’ve been another couple.

    Ordinary Dave would have been at home in “the flat above the shop”, can of Guinness in hand, watching Sky Sports.

    And you know, I think he drank the large one!

    Thought I’d logged on to The Mirror for a minute.

    Go to the Pantechnicon myself. A pint costs what a pint should a burger and chips comes in at 13.50.

    Guido talking shit again?

    8 point drop.


    Another 8 or 9 should wake the party up from its stooper.

    If they leave Heathite Cameron in place we will see Unite Len’s stooge Ed Miliband in Downing Street.

    Vote UKIP – the real Conservative Party.

    Well shame I’am going out, because I would enjoy kicking the uconned us and Camoron in their none balls, you know the ones they removed when they just got voted in by a cats whisker, seems like the other parties they have no one with balls running them anymore, they all seem to work better with yellow streaks, lies corruption, so change we have none.


  18. 32

    Usually support all your work Guido, BUT slagging off the PM for eating at a posh restaurant with his Wife is just a bit pathetic.

      It was the missus slagging Dave off for eating in an expensive posh restaurant. She was probably upset that they hadn’t gone to one of the subsidised eateries in the HoC.

    Cameron is a twat says:

    Don’t forget when Dave’s minimum booze price becomes law everyone will be paying £8 for pint.


  20. 35
    Ex Conservative Voter says:

    He’s damned if he does and damned if he doesn’t, really. If he’d rushed over to a Harvester to drink Fosters (God forbid) or Greggs (what the hell is Greggs, anyway?) to eat sausage rolls and show his “I’m one of you common folk” credentials like Militwit did, he’d be slammed as a phony, so why shouldn’t he pop over to his natural environment, an £8 (per pint??) pub?

    And it’s quite insightful; if he’s paying £8 for a drink, no wonder he’s dumbfounded that us commoners complain about £3.50.


    • 48
      yeah, right.... says:

      The real shocking thing about all this is that here is a politician paying for food and drink that isn’t subsidised by us.

    Margo Leadbetter says:

    When he visited the North West recently he called in for lunch unannounced at the Bell and Bottle, Newton-With-Scales with his entourage and had a chicken sandwich. It’s one of those chain pubs, and not one I would personally choose to frequent, which just goes to show that David is a ‘man of the people’ in spite of media attempts to portray him otherwise.


    • 59
      Ex Conservative Voter says:

      It’s generally considered bad form to walk into a pub, take a crap in the bogs and then leave without paying for something. I suspect the chicken sandwich got tossed (uneaten) from his car’s window, as Dave heartily tucked into wild smoked salmon sandwiches (crust removed, natch) and Fortnum & Mason Dundee cake.

        Yup, those UKIP bastards banging on about the EU all the time. Pick an issue, any issue and you can be fairly certain that the governments path is determined or influenced by an EU policy.

        Immigration – yup, EU’s tentacles here.
        VAT – I think you’ll find the EU sticking their oar in here.
        Agricultural subsidies – another EU competence
        Extradition of undesirables – do you really need to ask?
        Votes for prisoners – chalk that up for the EU
        Trade tariffs with non EU countries hampering our ability to trade globally – mais oui monsieur.
        Climate change shite – cheers Brussels!
        And on, and on…

        Take the EU out if the equation and many of these problems could be resolved. You still think the EU is a single issue, eh fuckwit?

        It says EIGHT pounds for a drink. Where doies it mention beer. I wouldnt think they would let pints of beer wankers in However a drink can be anything and a large glass of claret oir a vodka and tonic is at least 8 quid anyhwere in central london.

    You can get pasties and chips plus gravy and peas as well as hand conditioned Welsh beer and still have change from a twenty pound note.

    It is all well and good Dave throwing his own money around but it makes you think how good he is with our money.

    That David Cameron has got a cheek.

    He gets on a train to Cardiff and thinks he has made a visit to Wales.

    As if this isn’t bad enough he then goes on to complain that Wales is falling behind and then jumps back on the train to London without explaining what he is going to do to improve the situation.

    My friend Blodwen in the Colliers says Cameron is all mouth and trousers and reminds her of her first husband who went to jail for stealing horses.
