When Mitt Romney Came To Town

20120725-090430.jpg

In a bid to prove his foreign policy credentials, Mitt Romney has solved one of the largest ever strains on the Special Relationship. No, he hasn’t declared the Falkands to be British, rather he has promised to restore the bust of Churchill to the Oval Office if he beats Obama. See it is an equal partnership really…

Arriving today for the Olympic opening ceremony and meetings with Cameron and Miliband, the Republican Presidential campaign has been briefing Jon Swaine:

“…advisers told The Daily Telegraph that he would abandon Mr Obama’s “Left-wing” coolness towards London. We are part of an Anglo-Saxon heritage, and he feels that the special relationship is special,” the adviser said of Mr Romney, adding: “The White House didn’t fully appreciate the shared history we have.”

Anglo-Saxon? Not the most subtle dog whistle…

      Macmillan thought we should be Greece to America’s Rome.

      These days it’s not so much Greece, more like the Isle of Dogs.

      Speaking of Greece, has anyone noticed that synchronized striking is the new Olumpic craze?

          It would be good, wouldn’t it?

          We could also have a counter running from £0.00 at the start of the opening ceremony, up to £13billion at the end of the closing ceremony. So we can all better understand the true value of the Games.

            Not quite – the original estimate was about £3billion, and the highest official cost I could find was about £9billion, although there are reports that it could go to £24billion. I didn’t really want to think about that figure, though.

            For once in his life, Ken hit on a helpful way of looking at things: he converted the original estimated cost into its equivalent in Walnut Whips per Londoner: one a week = 38p (unadjusted 2007 prices).

            Immediately after we won, it was revealed our bid hadn’t included VAT. Since then, who knows how many it has turned into?

            Suffice to say that after the Games are over & the Worlds 2 minute attention span has moved somewhere else, like say Syria where there are already starting to prime us through various media feeds, that OUR Armed forces will have to intervene etc etc or the forth coming Iran War etc etc…..

            Then UK Plc will suddenly have to declare total insolvency as all of the real 2012 Games Invoice’s are suddenly found secreted deep inside a filing cabinet, @ No.3 Acacia Ave, Kilkaldy, FIFE, by a nosy but inquisitive trans sexual.

            This will mean that Call Me a Half Term Only Dave will be forced to go with his large Top Hat in hand to be bailed out by EUSSR. Of course the price they will extract from UK Plc to be fully integrated into the largest POZI scheme ever called the EURO, that even makes Bernie Madeoffs ripe off look like tea money, will be the total obliteration of the UK Plc from the worlds map to become just a Berlin totally dominated region & with no say what so ever.

            Of course Call me half a term Dave will return waving his piece of paper “EURO’s now & all in my Time”………..

    That’s certainly worth the billions spent on propaganda and special ops against sovereign states plus the occasional illegal war and resulting maimed soldiers. I wonder what Cameron would have to do to get his bust into the White House.

Damian McBride writes in the epilogue to his memoir…

“At the time of writing, nine months from the election, I’ve concluded that Labour currently has no positive messages to communicate to anyone about why they should vote for the party, no policies which will persuade them, and is being run in a totally dysfunctional way.”
