    The Labour Party candidate due to stand in the Avon and Somerset police commissioner election has stepped down due to a previous criminal conviction.

        John says:

        What has this to do with the topic at hand?

        Let’s rather point out that with all the gold being taken home by athletes from former colonies the overall picture is more one of colonialism in reverse!

          Mervyn says:

          Actually it’s about 5% gold, the rest mainly cupro nickel – bit like our gold bars we sell the punters – 95% tungsten, ha ha! Although given how much money we are printing for our mates down the road an ounce of copper will soon be worth as much as a schmuck Brit’s castle. G_d I love this country! It’s so fucking easy.

          • Undecided says:

            Away from all this bullshit – even if I had the will to do it – is it better to vote for Hunt Cameron or shoot oneself in the foot? or arse with a shotgun? (I know from persoinal expeience that’s very painful – and if you wonder why – try going duck shooting and climbing a style with a lorded shotgun – and the saftey off- and an early morning dram) – and for all you ‘elf n safety twats – FUCK OFF TO YOUR FOETID LITTLE DESKS AND FORMS!)

          • Forkbender says:

            Undecided, you are Dick (Dead Eye) Cheney and I claim my £5 or you could sent me one of those “gold” Olympic©® thingies

          • Aunt Mat says:

            Cameron/Hunt vs Shooting yourself.

            Like you, I am undecided.

            We are still giving away gold medals to the US and China.

            Can’t we make them out of milk bottle tops just for them?

      Tristram Smallbore-ffipps says:

      A little difficult for the Tories to take the high ground over the (always) venal Labour Party given that they were forced to tell Kieron Mallon he could not be considered due to a conviction for assaulting schoolboys and have nominated Michael Mates, close friend of criminal fugitive Asil Nadir for Hampshire commissioner. Presumably he will stand on the platform of “Elect me, I know where my friends can be found”.

      • 153
        The Tory's as at present led and fed says:

        We are, with few exceptions arse wipes and bottom feeders.

        Our leader, such as he is, has no moral compass or direction (remember Gordon?) and Millitwat is your next PM!

        And it could have been so very different!

      Liarpoliticians says:


      There’s next to no gold in an Olympic gold medal, it’s plated junk.

      “.. the gold medal consists of just over one per cent actual gold. The rest is made up of 92.5 percent silver and 6.16 per cent copper.

      Rules laid down by the International Olympics Committee specify that the medals must contain 550 grams of high-quality silver and six grams of gold. ”

      • 14
        Botham, you are a cock. says:

        6 grams of gold per gold medal, Brown sold 395 tonnes (395 million grams) = 65 million 833 thousand 333 medals, to replace what Brown sold off.

        I see why he went into sports, rather than anything involving intellect.

            Perhaps he is now an economist on Fuller’s Earth.

          • Anonymous says:

            Brown and Balls had crackpot ideas of economics and the price of gold. Sadly the country is still suffering from their failures.

        Actually Jen Weddell the bars bronze medallist stated in an interview that it was the National Lottery that enable this and that coaches and athletes could train all the time.

      And don’t forget he sold it at brownbottom after he’d given the markets 48hours notce of his intentions (or rather Ball’s had) so that the price fell dramatically before he put it up for sale!

      • 48
        A labour voting numbnut coz my dad did too says:

        To sell was bad enough but that announcement alone was utterly unbelievable. Until he used the cash generated to buy Euros.

        People say he kept us out of the Euro but that’s bollox he sold the gold reserves and bought the euro. There should have been an enquiry and Brown should be in Jail and his entrails hanged from tower bridge

          He bought Euros with that pittance he got from selling Our Gold.??!! I didn’t know that bit!

        And don’t forget Nell – he sold it because his Government advisers were Goldman Sachs and they made a huge ‘fee’ for being Government advisers. GS made a £4 million fee for advising Mouchel recently about restructuring their £180m debt. £87m of the debt – was ‘written off’ just like that! …..

        If betweeen Barclays, Lloyds Banking Group, RBS and Goldman Sachs – they ‘can between themselves ‘write off’ £87m Pounds just! like! that! – then I put it – why can’t all these ‘debts’ … [Its all based on falsities and a false market] … throughout Europe and farther afield – also be ‘written off’ just! like! that!?

        Following Alex Salmond’s pathetic attempts to stir up anti-GB feeling, Hoy said he was proud to cycle for Team GB and any attempts to launch a Scottish cycling team would be hampered by a lack of training facilities north of the border.

    Cato Street Conspirator says:

    Botham, the kind of man you’d like to have on your side: ‘… accused of racism and ball tampering by Imran Khan. This would become the subject of a court case later on, one that Imran Khan would go on to win. Botham was liable for all expenses in the court case in the ruling, even those incurred by Imran Khan… His private life has also made occasional dramatic appearances in Britain’s tabloid newspapers, with at least one extramarital affair prompting a public apology to his wife Kathy. Botham was also sacked from the Queensland team after being arrested for assault of a fellow airline passenger.’

    • 31

      Have you had any extramarital affairs yourself, CSC, you cuпt.

      • 37
        Izzy or Izn't he says:

        Well old cat, I think we can rest assured that no aspect of CSC’s ‘life’ will make any sort of appearance in the national press, dramatic or otherwise (unless he goes ballistic in his Thursday night nitting circle).

        • 44

          It’s people like him that steer me towards Tourettes.

          • Tristram Smallbore-ffipps says:

            But he is accurate about the other side of Botham’s character. In the 80s I worked for a company that retained Botham for promotional activity. On occasion I had to contact him and would call his home, only to be told by his wife that she had no idea where he was or where he had been for the last week.

          • I risk all sorts of censure for saying this but I actually met him myself in the early 80s. To be honest, if someone had not introduced him to me, I would have passed him by in the street without knowing. But I am not obsessed by celebrity culture. Never was. He seemed to be a nice guy and we had a short chat before moving on.

            I would not judge him in case anyone would want to judge me. Look for the underneath character, not the superficial.

          • says:

            My mate had a game of golf with him once because they were both on their own and Beefy had no superior attitude at all – as many others would have.

          Tay King-dePisse says:

          “Mr Cato, who has never been CONVICTED of fooling around with little kiddies” might be technically 100% accurate, in the sense that since you’ve never done so, hence nobody has ever brought charges against you, nor have you ever needed to defend yourself at trial for it; of course, saying it with THAT particular emphasis conveys quite a different message (“*cough*Michael Jackson*cough*”). Careful how you talk about people and their faults. Guido has to do so, to a certain extent anyway, just to maintain credibility, leaving to one side the question of defamation of character and libel suits. You had better, also, and for the same reason.

      Ah – the Alistair Campbell approach. If you can’t counter the argument with facts, smear the protagonist instead.

        Alky Campbell says:

        And even if you CAN counter with facts, why? Lies, fabrications, calumny, innuendos, insinuations, rumourmongering, insults, vituperation, derision– they’re all just too much fun to do to just simply abandon them! Why deny yourself the pleasure of kicking your opponent in the nuts out of some misplaced idea of fair play and honesty in the transacting of Government business? Hey, that’s just the way I roll, boss!

        And in all fairness to me, Sir Ian Botham and I have both worked, even together at times, to raise money for Leukaemia Research. I may be a complete and utter scumbag, but even I can play well with others when “It’s all in a good cause, innit?”

    The pound rose against other major currencies after Sir Mervyn King, governor of the Bank of England, said that further interest rate cuts in the UK could be counterproductive. FT (behind the paywall.)

    M@rkets have long memories. They extent to longer than five minutes. I have some pounds maturing soon, so excellent news for me there. But after September?….

    • 64
      Engineer says:

      After September, even the usual economic suspects are being very tight-lipped about what will happen with (or to) the Euro. A longish period of economic turbulence awaits, methinks. Not inconceivable that Sterling could become a safe haven.

      • 74

        That situation plays into my hands – both ways, Engineer.

        Having admitted that, I have no desire to see it happen (except in a very narrow selfish sense.)

        However, the average adult citizen of the UK has a potential debt liability of some £650,00 per head if you factor in all public debt, mortgages, loans, credit cards etc. (More possibly depending on whose figures you use.) Work out how long that will take to repay against the average disposable income (never.) No other country, Greece included, gets remotely near this.

        Sorry, but I will pile the pain on further. Just consider the extra pain that would ensue for every 1% in interest rates…

        We are all being ‘hoody’ [Brother] ‘winked’ – the issue is of what happens in November with the election of a President in that far off country who have only taken 200 years or so to screw up the rest of the world. There are 2 candidates – it’s like voting for evil or evil / Stalin or Stalin. But don’t expect them lot to wake up any time soon.

          My theory BW is that history speeds up.

          The Roman Empire lasted for 500 years. The British Empire lasted for a century and a half. The American Empire (yes, I know what the theory is…) has not even lasted a century – and they are now on the way out. The Chinese Empire will last 25 years maximum. The Indians will take over but for how long. Then South America…

          (I know I have left out Macedonian 5 minutes, Byzantium 1000+ years, the Ottoman at 700+ years, Holy Roman at 850 years and Austro-Hungarian half a century. But the principle holds.)

          • AC1 says:

            Chinese “empire” will blow up on the pad.

          • erm.... says:

            very good point about history speeding up.
            is this called evolution. Things get easier so less of a need for an external big stick.
            time feels longer when we detest something …i.e boredom and shorter when we love something ..for instance being in the moment.. why it feels longer is as we are meant to learn something from the situation and we are allowed more time. wierd but true.

        A favorite saying of mine to my now darling departed Mum was ‘when God’s ready’

        I sincerely hope God’s going to have something severe to say to gordon when he finally arrives at the Pearly Gates, when God calls him, not least about his claims for being a squeaky clean Christian whilst he was selling off our gold, stabbing folks in the back and throwing childish rages that culminated in him chucking his nokia at people.

          nell. I had not realised your Mum had gone but suspected it during your hiatus from posting.

          My sincere condolences. But as I have experienced with my Dad, now gone for over five years, there are the memories. They sustain you.


          • nellnewman says:

            Guido OT sorry.

            Thank you SC after long illness she died yesterday. God finally decided it was time though I’d told him off , lots in last few weeks,for not coming for her before this.

            Today my sisters and I have been having conversation about a particularly evil cockerel she kept with her chickens. As kids we were scared to death of it. I shall forever remember it’s name as gordon!

            As for Mum loved her to bits and well you know……………..

          • Yes, nell.

            Sorry to hear of your Mum’s passing, Nell. Even though common sense tells you that that’s the natural order of things, it’s still a wrench. I know it was when I lost my Dad. As SC wisely says, it’s remembering the good times that’s a help.

          • AC1 says:

            Thanks SC and Eng . She was 97 and 1 month so many would say her time had come. But to lose your Mum or your Dad who’s been the most loving person to you since you were a baby – well there are no words…..

            When parents are good – it is an amazing blessing = and we were poor but very blessed.

            When I read the story of poor =Shafil.ea*Ahm.ed this last few weeks and those dreadful cold uncaring parents I couldn’t help but compare our carefree childhood to hers and grieve for her.

            We have so much to celebrate!

          • nellnewman says:

            Yes Thank U AC1 . We shall remember the good.

            She spent a lifetime doing two jobs to earn enough money to make our lifetime good. We shall remember that.

            When I was registering her death today one of the questions I was asked was what benefits , other than the state pension had she claimed. Don’t ask me why they needed to know that ’cause I don’t know.

            Answer was she didnt- She didn’t have any money or property or investments other than her pension so she could have done. But she wouldn’t. She said she was entitled to her state pension because she worked past her age of retirement and paid for it in full and then some. But she wouldn’t claim anything else that she could have had.

            Proud of her independence.

            At the risk of mawkishness, nellnewman, let me offer my condolences to you, and the whole Newman family, in the form of a song which was by coincidence a hit right at the time of my father’s passing, and helped me get through it. It is sincerely meant and I am in complete earnest on this one:

            “Beyond the door, there’s pe*ace, I’m sure;

    “Cabinet minister Iain Duncan Smith met Miss Essex and spent the whole time staring at her breasts, it has been claimed. Twenty year-old Chingford resident Amber Zakrzewski triumphed in the county’s beauty pageant in March, after which her MP arranged a meeting in an attempt to recruit her to the Tories.

    Having previously attempted to elicit details of the meeting with the aid of a £280 magnum of Grey Goose vodka, The Sunday Times’ Taya Gold finally got Zakrewski to spill the beans at a society polo meeting:

    “Her reticence cracks and she finally tells me something interesting about her meeting with Duncan Smith, which is he stared at her breasts for 20 minutes.”

    IDS even invited her to the House of Commons — to see PMQs, of course.”

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
