Gordon Brown’s Mobile Phone Throwing World Record Broken

Ever since he was revealed to have furiously hurled three Nokias at a Downing Street wall Gordon Brown has been the unofficial mobile phone throwing world champion. Until now…

The Prime Mentalist has cruelly had his top Team GB achievement taken away from him after Finland set a new world record for throwing a mobile. 18-year-old Ere Karjalainen launched his phone an impressive 101.46 metres, smashing Gordon’s previous personal best of the width of a room in Number 10. Guido is sure Brown would never let anyone take his gold away from him…

      Only psychopath politicians throw phones in anger when things don’t go their way.

      The video is primarily about large corporations, but the same applies for political parties these days that are now run like corporations. The independently minded MP is just not selected by the corporate/political machines because they are…er…independently minded and won’t blindly toe the party/lobby line.

    He still holds the record for the longest amount of time employed in a senior position without attending or doing any work.

    712 days. Which is impressive even for an MP.

    Previous record was held by a nurse Jane Pilgrim who ‘worked’ for the NHS.
    She went 679 days without doing any proper work and would certainly have broken the record for employed unemployment if it hadn’t been for those meddling neo+guido kids.

Not famous in the UK of course so maybe it doesn’t count. Very interesting man and we exchanged emails afterwards, to pick up on our conversation which I reluctantly had to curtail due to a prior engagement.

    Soviet swimming pools and other things : If by reason , (and I perhaps havent resolved my Donatist file system) then it is not so easy to confere into a political construct , but then how do you resolve the poor question and enquiry ?? Did our society once contain more of a living emodiement of good education , or just less debauched beliefs ?
    The cruel sea perhaps appealed over the noble mental meander , although Chap 5 , clarified matters somewhat , in such difficult matters about faith , the sceptic tank used to be somthing safely down the bottom of the garden , hard pressed ,asked not to fail despite deep continual assaults on what you know to be the necessary faith let alone the loss of a once common unspoken language , that alone emodied our national characture.
