Gordon’s Reality Check

If the Prime Mentalist didn’t already know just how much everyone misses him, he will now. Gordon was supposed to speak at a press conference at the UN in New York last night but had to cancel after just one journalist turned up. McMental had hoped to enthrall a room of hacks with a speech about his latest schools initiative but was left red-faced when he was confronted with an empty room. It’s almost tragic. Almost…

      Gordon Brown is a nutter that does not like fair competition to the Ponzi Fiat currencies the G20 central banks are trashing, smashing savers and pandering to borrowers (like the government) and anyone with any kind of financial debt (including the government).

      Bloody Keynesian economic arsonist!

      Compared with Silent Bob, you are a motormouth, Tim. Try and keep it brief, we don’t have all day to read your outpourings.

        Nobody is interested in Gordon Brown apart from mental health clinicians who must have a field day with the troubles in his mind.

      Scratch a libertarian, find a right-wing statist says:

      Is that the record of Brown’s surgeries, debates, actual public service? Who needs ‘em, when you can afford to piss about in New York?

      One of the sleaziest things John Major did while in office was set up the slush fund to keep ex-PM’s in this delusional condition.

      Time to cut Gord’s unbilical cord.

      Someone tipped them off that he wasn’t going to answer “Curse of Jonah” questions, as to why the Dow Jones took a nosedive, for example, and other such reverse-Midas-touch instances, and so they all decided “What’s the point, then?”

      The simplest explanation is often the best one, innit: He’s got nothing to say that anybody wants to hear.

    And the one hack who did turn up said ..

    “Awww shhhuccks! When the editor said go cover some angry, mentally unstable, shouty, sweary phone throwing limey,
    I thought it was gonna be that chef guy.”

    Blimey, if the BBC didn’t charter its usual Gulfstream of freeloading eco-hypocrites to ‘cover’ what their US-based colleagues evidently also couldn’t drag themselves away from President Obama’s coat-tails to at least swing by to nod at on an obscure web page, it seems the saviour of the world has been pretty much deserted by even his most loyal and effective PR team.

    Not having sway on matters of self-interest can of course do that with high-integrity, professional, impartial, most-trusted media.

      The problem with QT is it is so predictable, so we knew Hunt would be raised as an issue.
      And of course there had to be an attack on the Catholic Church while nobody could bring themselves to mention Islam.
      But Wifey and I were attending with a decent TV set, so got clear sound, and she did say HUNT.
      Non story based on poor sound reception/recording!

      Non story – the sound recording is clipped for less used frequencies during compression – result – poor sound recording!
      Also listen to the hiss… says it all really!

      I’d criticise Harmperson if it’s due, but not this time.

    Fucking hilarious.

    Loving the face-saving excuse he tried at the end…

    A spokesman for Mr Brown said he was on a panel with Aung San Suu Kyi and Queen Rania of Jordan “which overran.”

    Aye. He was too busy to go to his press conference which nobody showed up to.

    I imagine all the reporters had similar excuses. ‘Sorry, I had to go to an opening of a McDonalds..’ ‘Sorry, I was delayed, the football went to extra time..’ ‘Sorry, I was delayed, I was organising my canned goods alphabetically..’

    He had to come up with an excuse not to show up to his own press conference. Just like every body else.

    Hahahahahahaha.

      If the Maximum Imbecile apologised in person, that reporter had better have excellent life insurance…
      He’s already attended a cursed press conference.
      A close up with The Gorgon could finish him for good.

      Now now TT. You know how it works.
      The lowliest stringer always gets sent to cover the Parish council meeting, the W.I. jam pot covering and the visit of the former Prime Mentalist.

    Harman, fairness, Jack Dromey parachuted into an all women safe seat. Private education. The woman is a tosser and scrounger from the tax payer.

    is the comedy in the contrast?

    cameron – a bankrupt lecturing on the evils of poverty – full audience

    and…

    brown – a nutter lecturing on the evils of ignorance – audience of one

    which is the greater of two weevils?

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.”
