Hollande Left With Oeuf on Face

It turns out President Hollande was all mouth and no trousers last week as he tried to mock Team GB’s medal haul:

“We don’t talk of money, we talk of gold. The British have rolled out a red carpet for French athletes to win medals. I thank them very much for that, but the competition is not over. We will put the French medals into the Europe pot, so that the British will be happy to be European.”

Sixteen Team GB golds later and the cat seems to have got Hollande’s tongue  – Britain now has double the number of golds won by the French and are miles ahead of them in the overall medal table.

Boris twisted the knife this morning, delivering the sort of line that Dave dreams of being able to say:

Well, M le Président, mettez-ça dans votre pipe et fumez-le! Bien je jamais,eh!”

    my worry was that he was hinting that just as the awards were for Europeans, so should be the cost – in future

    it is a rip-off as it is, no need to let Brussels add noughts to the losses

    As for Boris’s op-ed piece in the Telegraph this am,

    what a complete load of tripe, drivel and useless rot.

    As for giving Sauce Hollandaise a kicking, jolly good show, what!

    Perhaps on the back of this Olympics euphoria, someone can convince “Call me Dave” to let us have a Euro Referendum, simple Yes/No option, which hopefully will then screw Cleggypoo’s wish to go back to Brussels when we all vote No, nien, non, nyet.
    It would be Call me Dave’s final revenge on the Limp-Dicks.

    Now then now then, boys and gals boys and gals, especially little gals says:

    A TV documentary will accuse late broadcaster and charity campaigner Sir Jimmy Savile of being a pa*dophile, it has been reported. The programme, which is set to air on ITV1 ahead of the first anniversary of Savile’s death in October, will be presented by criminologist and child protection expert Mark Williams-Thomas.

    The show interviews several alleged victims, who claim Savile abused them when they were under age. The alleged victims are female and speak of grooming and assaults, some of which they claim took place on BBC premises. Savile presented Top Of The Pops, Jim’ll Fix It and Clunk Click for the broadcaster.

    A source told The Mirror: “The ­programme is the result of a very lengthy investigation, which has been kept highly confidential. There have been rumours circulating for years about Sir Jimmy from his days on television. But up until now nobody has got any victims to speak out.

    Rutherford – ~ 8.30m attained 45 years ago; lowest winning olympic distance since 40 years.

    cycling – tens of millions lottery money spent on tech; where’s the effing skill?
    rowing – ditto; about ten countries compete seriously.
    swimming – oops! world competes – UK – zeros; cast aspersions on drug cheating when beaten
    football – world competes; plus requires innate skill and intelligent organisation coaching – can’t be done by coaching the pulling of an oar or turning a crank mindlessly

    Yeah, let’s all celebrate UK’s sport success!

    Did you know, on a French keyboard you have to SHIFT the . key to get a .? You can’t just press full-stop to get a full stop, noooo, that’s far too sensible, you have to shift-press-full-stop.

    And I think I’m right in saying you have to shift comma, and all the number keys at the top, too.

    This French twat a few months back was telling anyone who would listen that he was going to save the world by issuing eurobonds.

    Wins an election rushes off to see Merkel gets struck by lightening and then hey ho Eurobonds are off the agenda and are now a 10 year plan.

    When the summer silly season is over he and his Prime Minister with a suspended sentence for fraud in public office are going to be crucified.

    Oh, and believe sport should require some actual skill, rather than the coaching of automatons, however ‘bravely’ they rowed, cycled … . Sport is the human spirit displaying its god given talent, not an exercise in replicating a rowing machine or a bicycle roller.

    If you’d ever rowed, you’d know that there’s a lot more to it than “replicating a rowing machine”.

    In fact, I’s do so far as to sat that rowing in an eight is the ultimate team sport – to balance the efforts of eight people and keep the boat sitting correctly in order to achieve maximum speed is extremely difficult.

    Similarly with cycling – just keeping the bike on the track at 40+ miles an hour is an achievement that I doubt you’d ever manage.

    You are an idiot and an ill informed bigot.

    There have been plenty of cases of the deluded having a Napoleon complex, but to date few patients have presented themselves with a Hollande complex.

    But perhaps Hollande is suffering from Gordon Brown syndrome, the delusion that more state spending leads to long term economic growth and prosperity.

    Johnny says says:

    The site asks: “How many medals could the EU win if it took part in the Olympic Games as one team? ”

    The answer is not as simple as totaling up the medals from member states. If there was an EU team it would not be as big as all the member state teams combined nor have anything approaching the strength, so the total medal score would be likely to be smaller. One EU cycling team per race rather than several member state teams, one rowing team per race, one volleyball team, etc and (presumably) there is a maximum number of entrants in the individual events that any one nation can send.

    Jane Birkin from Paris says:

    He has some really interesting deficit reduction ideas:

    1. reducing the retirement age back to 60 from 62

    2. increasing the minimum wage by more than the rate of inflation

    3. employing another 50000 teachers in the state sector

    4. increasing family allowances

    Law and order is also something close to his heart too:

    1. Clocked being driven on the motorway at 160 KMH

    2. Failing to stop and pay at a motorway tollbooth

    A friend of mine was on the motorway at the time of the speeding offence therefore showing a contemptuous disregard for her security on the highway.

    After barely three months in office with no reduction in unemployment he buggers off to a State funded holiday retreat in the South of France.

    Quel con!

    Boris Johnson says:

    The EU would implement central planning for sports to avoid wasteful competition and deliver the same astonishing success that we have enjoyed with the Common Fisheries Policy and the Common Agricultural Policy.

    In year one we it would establish the secretariat with several directorates and a modest staff of five hundred. In the second year it would levy a tax on all individuals participating in sport and distribute the tax to its officials enforcing the European standards for running, jumping and swimming. In the third year it would outlaw any sporting activities not conforming to its standards and paying its taxes. It would make the IoC look transparent, incorruptible and benign, an Olympic achievement in its own right.

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
