There were some golden Boris moments during the Olympics, but Bojo and Barbara Windsor playing sitting volleyball this afternoon has to top the lot. And with that silly season comes to a close…

      Me and Gordon both went to the same university.
      London metropolitan.

      He took advanced bee keeping and theoretical alchemy.
      I took a urban poetry and rainbow healer.
      We both received a degree in economics and social engineering for free when we signed on.

      Hey Diane,

      I’ve really slimmed down, thanks for the inspiration!

      Took the kid out of the private “academy” and only spent £3359.99 on pies this month.

      Free childcare has been a boon.

      The afghan family next door even take my children to their new school in their new car for me whilst I attend my work assessment with those nice French people from “Atos”

      Diane, thank you for saving me from my racsist tendencies

        Judging from your recent scarcity, you must be just back from your fact-finding tour of the Galapagos.

          They did have a use for baby turtle shells that is depicted in the above informational video.

          No man made oil based plastics. Just produced by fair trade, smiling locals using sustainable resources.

          Went and pitched it to a green maternity chain. They were very keen.
          Mind you the Eco-source ethical buyer did say ..

          “That’s wonderful. And enough of these baby turtles just die from natural causes to fulfill our maternity bra orders, do they?”

          “Oh yes,” says I. “”Its a jungle out there.”

          I’m sure they do die of natural causes. I never really thought to ask and the head honcho at the broilling plant never said otherwise.

          • Fantastic! You really should post this up on They Work For You.

            I am thinking of going myself. Was the food good?

          • Engineer says:

            I would imagine that one could become a little bored with turtle soup for breakfast, dinner and tea.

          • It must make a change from that revolting subsidised stuff which they are force-fed at the House.

          • jgm2 says:

            Turtle is supposed to be fantastically tasty. There’s a turtle-rearing (and canning) factory (paid for with EU funds) on Reunion.

            Unfortunately there’s a world-wide ban on turtle products at the moment so they just rear them. For now.

          • Tristram Smallbore-ffipps says:

            If a court case was necessary for condemnation then you could hardly complain about the likes of Livingstone or Prescott. Boris’ morals are no better (or worse) than theirs or Assange. Ask any of the husbands (and former friends) whose wives he has pestered. You do not have to defend the indefensible to be a good Tory.

          • jgm2 says:

      The lefties are waaaay to the wrong side of public opinion on the squatting ‘issue’.

    If Cameron does this he’ll never hear the last of it.

    ‘The Daily Telegraph disclosed that he claimed as much as £950 a month in parliamentary expenses for eight years to rent rooms in two London properties. The houses were owned by his partner, James Lundie, a political lobbyist. In 2006, MPs were banned from “leasing accommodation from a partner”.’

    Presumably it’s something Clegg wants.

            A good point well made, – but I’d sooner have Brenda rather than Dipstick Dave.

            However, when Brends goes …. Chuck, as an utter twerp, I don’t count. So maybe it should all stop now.

            But what or who to replace? I trust no-one, least of all Dave, £ieBore etc.

            Timothy Stephen Kenneth Yeo

          • Jimmy says:

            John Gummer, Baron Deben

          • Yeo is awful, I’ll grant you, but he has never got close to The Saint. Not even remotely.

          • Jimmy says:

            There are many Labour supporters, myself included, who would like to see Bliar shot, especially in front of his family

          • It is strange that, coming from opposite sides of the (old and discredited) political spectrum, we should find ourselves in such close agreement.

            My hunch is that he managed to corrupt all the things we had each held dear. From being a global hero (or brand?), he is now almost universally reviled. That it has happened in such a short time, historically, gives me concerns that revisionists will paint him in rosy colours again in the years to come.

          • says:

            Do we really need a President who will constantly lie to us like all PMs do? Who will start wars and make promises and then renege on those promises once in power. Maybe we should be more like Cuba where Castro’s brother just happened to be the most suitable candidate to take supreme power. Or maybe North Korea where the son was. Instead of a monarchy let us be fooled into thinking we have some real choice where we can opt for either the equivalent of Bob Diamond or Fred the Shred. There is an adage that goes if it aint broke don’t fix it. The monarchy is not broke. It works well. The banks are broken , the EU was always broken and the political system is broken when blackmailing unions can chose the next PM. When all those corrupt MPs can fiddle their expenses. So let’s sort them out – not the only decent thing we have that does work.

            How many people’s lives has she buggered up?

            @SC. Blair used the Labour Party as a trojan horse to set about his NeoCon reconstruction of politics. He was as right wing as Thatcher.

          • @Jimmy. Don’t see it quite that way. The only thing I saw in common was the three terms. Margaret Thatcher had a political philosophy based upon Popper and Hayek. She was influenced towards this by Keith Joseph.

            Tony Blair had his Third Way. Imagine that Anthony Giddens got to him without an intermediary.

            This so-called political philosophy was really a rejection of things like top-down socialism. It did not appear to me to have a substantive base (I leave aside the issue of whether I would agree with it or not for the sake of this discussion.)

            I just have this mental image of Blair standing in front of a mirror for years trying to ham his lines better. I never fell for it and doubt very much you did either, despite our vastly different viewpoints. But a lot of people did fall for it, even after the Iraq war.

        • 181

          Are you seriously arguing that given a choice between Blair and Boris you would vote for Boris to be President? Do you really think you would have any choice other than those candidates chosen for you by the elitocracy to vote for?

          • Jimmy says:

            I would vote for neither. The only person I would vote for president would be Ian Hislop. Boris is irrelevant outside the M25. Londoners tolerate him for the comic effect.
            Anyway who said we were voting for a president? Me – I’ll stick with Phil & Brenda, and Will & Kate for you younger generation. The rest need to be slimmed down severely.
            One palace for the lot of them. Sell the rest to the Arabs or the Chinese to pay off the deficit.

          • Moussa Koussa says:

            As the only growth in this country is for pawnshops, food banks and payday lenders, this is what Call Me Dave I’m A Pretty Straight Sort Of Guy should have done:

            Palace of Westminster is subsiding – move parliament to a disused retail park near Stratford. No one gives a toss where they are anyway. The Olympic Village can be converted to bedsits for the MPs to live in.
            Sell off the Royal Palaces bar one. Give Brenda her choice – Buckingham Palace or Windsor. Make your mind up. Sell them off to the Arabs.
            Sell off all the fancy properties in Whitehall. They can all move out into the sticks. There’s plenty of empty property outside of London.
            Convert the Houses of Parliament into flats for the homeless. They’ll be needing it now squatting’s illegal.
            Finally sell the Falklands to Argentina along with the oil rights. The price? £1tn to cover the national debt, plus enough to repatriate every Falklander who wants to come back to Britain and buy them each a footballer’s mansion and a pension for life.. If they don’t want to come back, tough. It’ll sort the problem out for good.
            There you have it – deficit eliminated and the politicos put in their place.
            What could possibly go wrong?

          • Don’t think there is any treatment available for your condition, Moussa.

Kevin Maguire on the less than electrifying Ed Miliband…

“I bet if you went into a pub tonight and started a conversation about ­politics you’d hear strong opinions. David Cameron would be out of touch and Nick Clegg despised while Nigel Farage would divide people sharply. Miliband? In a lot of boozers he’d be the fourth most interesting man in British politics.”

It’s money innit.
