Olympic Golds Nix Mirror Man’s Jinx Meme

One man who clearly has mixed feelings about the Olympic gold haul yesterday is the Daily Mirror’s diminutive deputy political editor James Lyons:

He had been enjoying blaming sporting setbacks on an alleged “Curse of Cameron”, a meme which has an uncanny resemblance to the sporting Jinx of Jonah Brown popularised on these pages in the dark days of the accursed one-eyed son of the manse’s regime.

Mehdi Hasan took a break from cheering on the Iranian Olympic squad to join in:

Then Chris Hoy won the first gold with Cameron in the audience and the supposed curse was lifted. When congratulating British Gold medallists on Twitter Dave began casually mentioning being there in his tweets:

His presence in the winning of three golds nixing the jinx meme once and for all. As bad as things are for Cameron politically, he is no Jonah Brown…

      Ye daft buggers! I am still presenting a lecture series at NYU, the alibi for my trips to New York, which, now, due to my “UN Special Envoy” status, means that as long as I have “business” at the UN, I can come in under a diplomatic passport. What that means is that they do not search my luggage at Heathrow when I depart or at JFK when I land, which means they do not find all the undeclared income in the form of cash-in-hand bungs I get, which means that I can head straight to the bank and deposit those pound-notes and dollar-bills (euros if I must have to accept them) into my local on-the-record non-interest-bearing accounts in NY (hence no US tax), in several different banks, which are compliant with the Patriot Act, whence they are transferred into my offshore accounts, in increments far below the ten-grand USD reporting requirements, which accounts are trusts which own shell corporations through limited partnerships (Guido would know about this sort of chicanery), which I will access whilst I’m outside the UK in places like, e.g., Cape Cod when I’m in America.

    One thing which has inspired me about the Olympics is the boost it’s given to Arab women’s emancipation. The sight of the young Kuwati sprintess, dressed in a purple morph outfit and pulling a hamstring within half a second of the start of the 100m in the preliminary round will have done more for Arab women than any number of op-ed slots from Mehdi explaining how the religion of peace is also basically a free pass for the babes to ‘have it all’…and the Koran is really just like Cosmo without the l’Oreal ads.
    Her injury was a fuckin shame tbh. I lost £2. If you missed it, it was one of those per-pre-qualifiers for all the old and fat fuckers from countries you’d never heard of from the opening ceremony when you were thinking “fuck me…is that an athlete…I could fuckin beat them”. Obviously, they were only here for the holiday and so they picked the 100m (no point in getting sweaty etc). Anyhow, I’ll give the Kuwati lass her due: she looked like she might be a bit nippy, though distictly agoraphobic…like she hadn’t been out the house in the last decade, which in retrospect should have set me thinking whether running was gonna be her thing.

    So I picked her and the missus went for some African bird who I didn’t like the look of as she was carrying a bit of beef…turned out she was like a fuckin whippet and the wife cleaned up.
    Thing was: I thought I was onto a winner because the week before, the fuckin Guardian had done a big inspirational “don’t believe the islamophobic propaganda” piece on her, making out she was the next fuckin Uasin Bolt. I’d been sitting there thinking I’d backed a ringer. So the moral is..erm…y’know etc

    Interesting to see the left having a go at private schools once again. Thing is it’s socialism under the Liebore party that has destroyed competitive sports in UK state schools (taking out Grammar schools of course that still do it) and replacing it with multi cultural gender equal bollocks that doesn’t motivate any kids.

    Also interesting to note (anecdotal) that most of the successful athletes seem to have a mother AND FATHER behind them, often fathers are the driving force for kids to succeed at sport. This again doesn’t play well with the men hating lesbians in the Labour party like Harman, Fatbutt, the Eagle bothers and the little boy Cooper.

    Then you have the teaching unions who for the most part have lost interest in the idea that part of their job is to motivate kids, just as the NHS unions have forgotten that the NHS is there to cure people not just fund huge salaries for themselves.

    When England won the 2003 Rugby world cup the NUT used a picture of them in an advert about teamwork. The RFU objected pointing out that for years the teaching unions had been trying to kill off sports like rugby in state schools.

            When the Wimbledon finals were on, somebody on here wrote that a “fix” was in for Murray to win the men’s singles being as it was jubilee year and all that, but he played so badly that Roger had no choice but to go on and win it.

            Now then, one wonders if, as a result of that loss, the “fix” was in for Murray to win the gold medal. instead, being as it’s jubilee year and the UK are the hosts etc..

            Having sat through the match I cannot believe how badly Roger played. I have never seen him make so many unforced erros in a match as he did today.

            Just sayin’, not accusing anybody of anything untoward.
