Boris Challenges Putin To Strip To the Waist and Fight

Vladimir Putin will be Dave’s guest of honour at the judo this afternoon, and London’s Mayor couldn’t resist having his say as Boris Mania goes international. At least he didn’t challenge the PM to a duel, yet…

    “We want the politicians’ Olympics”

    Careful what you wish for. Probably end up with Ken Clarke and Yvette Cooper playing beach volleyball.

        How about a pie-eating contest– you, Tom Watson, Diane Abbott, Lord Prescott and various and sundry other north-of-twenty-stone pol’s?
        CAUTION! Those with weak stomachs had better not watch, though…

          What about a pie eating contest and then a wrestling match between them, 10 round, 2 submissions or a ko, with a especially constructed reinforced ring

      Nah. Clarke hasn’t got the buttocks for it. My little wifie, on the other hand. Or both hands…

    Boris wants the politicians “stripped to the waist”.

    Probably safer for Boris to strip no further.

    Boris is a clown.

      A highly intelligent clown. Unlike, say, the Mentalist.

      erm... says:

      outwardly jovial, sharply intelligent, flirty.
      internally? sensitive to darkness of life.
      tremendously ambitious. meant for the world stage….possibly.

    Who wants to see me strip down to my y-fronts?

    Sounds like fun

    The religion of peace and morality says:

    The jailed leader of a Rochdale sex ring has received a further term of 22 years for 30 child ra*e charges.

    Shabir Ahmed, 59, of Oldham, was one of nine men convicted of sex offences against children at Liverpool Crown Court in May.

    He was not named at the time because he faced further charges, but was jailed for 19 years.

    Ahmed was convicted at Manchester Crown Court in June of ra*ing and sexually a*using a girl for more than a decade.

    His sentence will run concurrently with the earlier one.

    RasPutin wrestling against Billy Hague could be watchable……..for about half the 10 seconds it lasted.

    Hugh Janus says:

    O/T, but Coe and his cronies, including our ‘Olympics Minister’ (was there ever a more ridiculous so-called job) have not one shred of sympathy for those businesses struggling to survive in a double-dip recession (soon to become a depression) and one them even thought it funny that they had frightened a lot of people into staying away from London. Never mind the alleged £16bn bonanza we were promised; Coe appears to have the reverse-Midas touch:

    Insufferable prats.

    HICOG says:

    I wonder how all those businesses that had to relocate before the bulldozers arrived are getting on?

    I quite enjoyed it, dear. Do we win something?

    Pawn Sandwich says:

    Does Boris realise that Putin has a black belt in judo?

    If Boris does have to challenge another politician then he should think about Sarkozy. Be a popular move too.

    Boris Mania.

    In more plain language: you are all bloody crackers. Boris too.

    Tell you what, he is far more in tune with ordinary people than most politicians.

    Fight Night says:

    If you strip Putin bare from his team of ready to hand assassins and thugs. strip him to the waist and pitch him in a fair fight with BoJo, Putin’s going down.

    He’s all puffed up steroid KGB nonsense backed up only by the above.

    Kannot Get Boris says:

    The smart money would be on our boy!

    Look at the way he handle that zip wire, that shows the best public school training that a Dad’s money can buy!

    OK, quite interesting but it doesn’t belong here.

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.”
