Fifteen-Love, Actually

They’re having a bit of a nightmare over at Political Scrapbook towers this afternoon. Borrowing a quote from the Racing Post, the lefty blog ran a story that David Cameron had snubbed a phone call with Barack Obama because he was playing tennis with Rebekah Brooks’ husband, Charlie. Funny they weren’t so vocal about Gordon Brown pathetically begging Obama five times for a fifteen minute meeting in a kitchen, or Tony Blair bombing countries on the whim of an American president. In terms of the special relationship, a stand-up-for-yourself Hugh Grant-style approach should surely be cheered…

In any case, it looks like the story has little foundation anyway:

Doh!

UPDATE: King of spin Damian McBride has another explanation:

    Brown, if Obama was in the habit of making impromptu phonecalls, would have simply spent his entire three years sat in an empty room with a telephone. Just in case.

    Like that Mrs Doyle woman on ‘Father Ted’ when he went downstairs one night , opened the door, turned on the light and there was Mrs Doyle with a tray of tea. Just in case.

    I wonder how much of our booze and food was consumed by the Brooks’ during their 3 weekends at chequers?

      Northerners always have a problem with strong successful women.

      I would prefer Rebekah to Cameron as PM.

    Cameron is ignorant about the Magna Carta. I wonder if he knows we have a Bill of Rights too? His ignorance is worrying.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
