“Celebrations are a trifle early.”

    I have my own triumph to announce! I confidently expect to be in the New Years Honours List, and thereafter be known as Sir Gordon McBonkers Brhune. Elevation to the Lords is only a matter of time.

    The line-up for I’m a Celebrity has been unveiled. Normally I don’t watch that shit. But one of the line-up is Coronation St actress Helen Flanagan.

    someone please inform me very slowly why the BBC4 production on 1/Nov/2012 @9pm (a three parter 08/Nov etc..) entitled:

    The day the Town Hall sharnk.

    Regarding cuts to Stoke-on-Trent and it’s budget via Eric Pickles, did not broadcast any internal wranglings over Labour selections for MP or local Councillors?

    A Pickle’s cut of £21m turned into a ‘shortfall’ of £36 inside one breath and the BBC production team did not spot this?

    Up to now, the BBC4 team have got this horribly wrong.

      FGS Gary. the whole show is just a BBC party political broadcast on behalf of the Labour Party! The whole point is to show the pain, misery and hardship the evil Tories enjoy inflicting on the elderly, vulnerable and ‘disadvantaged.’

        That is not the way it is going down.

        What I’m hearing is that everyone is disgusted at what they actually saw.

    Shouldn’t I get something for my “custardy” reply to Steve’s “trifle” comment?

      better to laugh in the face of death and tweak the nipple of adversity than to head into B&Q for timmber, rope and nails…

    Got to say, that was a bit weak….Trifle Early? Didn’t reference the event at all, that’s not satire that’s just a pun. Satire is contextual, this would have worked with anyone holding a cake.

    My winner would be:-

    Annonnymouse!

    After putting down the cake Denis noticed that he had sticky fingers!

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.”
