Chill-axing in the Sun

“PRIME Minister David Cameron yesterday denied he was too chilled out” wrote Tom Newton Dunn on Monday. It would seem the Sun’s Political Editor is a bit of an expert on chill-axing, at least if his personal portrait is anything to go by:

This one has been doing the rounds this morning… 

UPDATE: Sun sources say it was a wedding present rather than egotistically commissioned.

    What a ponce, having his own portrait done!

    I wonder what Sun readers think of a man who sits for his own oil painting?

        Yes, it is only Guardian readers who really think. Heavy is their burden, for they must always be considering what is best for everybody, especially those horrible hideously white Sun readers.

        Thank God for Polly and her fellow travellers. Where would we be without them telling us what is best?

        To most Sun “readers” an oil painting is something the army do using high explosives on an Iraqi petrochemical well.

        And they don’t really notice any woman in print without her two “Ed’s” out.

    UK unemployment fell by 45,000 to 2.63 million in the three months to March compared with the previous quarter, and output fell by 0.3% !! Someone needs to work harder.

      They cannot measure ‘output’. It is a nominal thing.

        AC1 says:

        GDP measures spending, so if people decide not to binge on their credit card the “economy” falls. When in fact we’re just wasting less money.

        • 74

          Have they projected the lower projected liability for the index linked, non contributory, public service bureaucratic pension pot we will save by getting rid of some of the slackers?

          Just a question.

    I’ve always been suspicious of men who die their hair, have their portraits painted or wear their wife’s tartan. Contact lenses have become in some circles acceptable although I’m not convinced.

    Sir William Waad says:

    It’s in the modern British portrait tradition and owes something to Hockney and Freud. It’s also in an ancient tradition of putting the subject in the context of his relationships and possessions. The cropping of the picture is sharply done. One might say that the composition doesn’t bring out Mr Dunn’s face, which would normally be the main feature of a portrait, but perhaps we can put that down to modesty (?!) It’s really a very nice portrait and congratulations to Mr Dunn for commissioning it.

    • 20
      Sir William Waad says:

      I mean the cropping of the original picture, not Guido’s hacking.

      I think a portrait of 2 poofters on a couch would be treated with undisguised ridicule by most people in this country apart from the metropolitan liberal and political elite who may have a preponderance of that species in their midst.
      I believe in live and let live but do not ask for or want a minority lifestyle shoved in my face because an even smaller, albeit influential minority, in this country wants to promote it in the cause of Political correctness gone stark raving mad.

    Clegg delivering the Cameron line in Berlin today:

    * The Euro must be saved at all cost to the British taxpayer

    * Britain will die a horrible death if Greece leaves the Euro

    * More Europe & less democracy is the answer

    If you vote for Dave Cameron you vote for more Europe.

    If you vote for Dave Cameron you agree to him giving the EU £53.8 million pounds a day.

    Simple. As. That.

    I am no slouch at chillaxing myself says:

    The painting should have had the back of the head of a nice lady positioned one-quarter from bottom and in the middle for it to depict proper chillaxing.

    Perhaps the male needed too many blue pills before the painter had finished?

    ‘Medical conditions’ are blamed.

    ‘No-one-giving-a-flying-fuck’ is the more likely explanation. One can only imagine the histrionics from the Lefy c*nt regarding the complete lack of media interest.

        Yes but no but that’s their culture.

        They’re allowed one you see, unlike all those hideously white people, treating this island like it’s their homeland or something.

        Vote Ken.

        Eddie Izzard says:

        Why… thank you! Yes… (smug sideways glance to camera)… these noble locals are welcoming me to their rally by garlanding me… with – how charming – some car tyres!

        This clearly is their local custom, and I am deeply touched. We’ll do a cutaway shot of me reflecting on how deeply these primitive people have moved me.

        Oh look! Someone is now pouring a tribute of some kind of fluid over me, which smells of petrol. Clearly they have seem my sell-out tours, and this is a particular honour.

        Here’s one holding up a lighter, probably in tribute to Nelson Mandela… or Freddie Mercury… one of the two.

        What great people.

    One does so love it here in the EUSSR talks, – it’s just like coming home, – one feels so relaxed and among friends, – so different from that poxy House of Common People where they question one’s motives.

    And of course one can talk about one’s favourite Progressive subjects, – Wind Farming and all the financial benefits to the fiddlers – one should say farmers, – Green Energy Scams and all the lovely lolly one can rake in, – and all the other dashed supper schemes!

      You do know that syphilis is a camel disease?

      This means that:

      A) You not only have an illiterate pedophile to blame for the rest of the worlds’ view of your religion of peas, but also

      B) You ARE camel shaggers. If you had brought Aids across from chimps to humans as well, we could call you incurable romantics.

    Asquith was so fond of drinkies that the term squiffy entered the English language.

    Chamberlain – classical music, long walks in the country (hence what’s the difference between Chamberlain and Hitler, one takes weekends in the country, the other takes countries in weekends.

    When it comes to brass neck, you have to hand it to Balls-Cooper.

    Having set up the UK to take half a million new people a year (proving that the unemployment would be much lower) they now have the fucking cheek to criticise the Conservatives for not being able to bring it down,,,,

    “Yvette Cooper MP, the shadow home secretary, said the government was failing badly on its own immigration target to reduce net migration: “David Cameron said 12 months ago: ‘No ifs. No buts. That’s a promise we made to the British people.’

    ‘Yet these figures show that promise is being broken and the net migration figure of 252,000 is barely changed in the last two years, even with the net rise in British citizens leaving the UK.”

    However, when challenged about the Great Labour Immigration cover-up….

    http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/uknews/immigration/8786632/Labours-embarrassing-immigration-secrets-revealed.html

    Cooper said. ‘In an interview this weekend Ms Cooper admitted: “We did get things wrong on immigration.

    “We should have had the transitional controls on migration from Eastern Europe. We should have introduced the points-based system much earlier.”

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
