The Weirdest MP Christmas Card Yet

    Perhaps they like dogging?

    Hopefully it will micturate on the “Honourable” member’s leg!

    Won ? One !

    “Found a worse won?”? tsk

    Ben says:

    At least the dog isn’t doing a dump!


  6. 6
    Jez says:

    I think it looks a lot nicer than many of the shit children’s drawings of a Christmas tree that always turn up. At least this one is a bit personal. As for “godless”, given that Christmas is just ripped off from the pagan festival of Yuletide I’m pretty glad that it’s godless!


  7. 7
    Mr Rotivator says:

    More appropriate if it came from the chief whippet


  8. 8
    Andrew Efiong says:

    Looks like something Ron Dennis would have sent!


  9. 9
    Alasdair Campbell Murderer says:

    Is Chi Onwurah a real name?

      god says:

      The way things are going in the UK, all the “honourable” members will soon have names like that!!!

        Certainly in England, but MPs from the other nations will still have indigenous-sounding names.

      She’s the Newcastle MP who asked to be excused her first day in the House so she could play Bingo.

      One black one and one white (-ish) one – even the dogs are ‘gloriously diverse’…

      Pundit too too says:

      Interesting that she has more real life work credentials than her boss Chuka A Moneyatit.
      Degree in electrical engineering, some management jobs, and was doing an MBA but no mention if she got it. Is this why she became a Labour MP?


  10. 12
    No such thing as society says:

    What’s strange with using this picture of two dogs about to lick each others backside? It’s just what MPs do with their friends who assist them financially due to their limited wages.


  11. 13
    Steve Miliband says:

    Thought Toon supporters didn’t wear shirts?


  12. 15
    The burgermeister says:

    This is made all the better because the pooch looks like it’s about to take a dump.


  13. 16
    Honey Monster says:

    Likely explanation – black and white stripes, she’s a Newcastle MP. Sorry to shit on your “story”.

      we know that knobhead, it is still shite

      I bet she wouldn’t know St James’s Park, Newcastle, from St James’s Park, London.

      Dearie me, you mean they STILL get snow in Newcastle? I thought Global Warming was supposed to put an end to such a thing! Has anyone told the folks at East Angular about this?

    The hare is running at Haringey.

      That would be Harringay. The arena closed for greyhound racing long before the London Borough emerged from an amalgamation of the old LCC boroughs of Harringay and Hornsey.

    Geordie MP playing to local market…Town Moor very important up West Jesmond Way – Ed’s definately much weaker

    For all of your Irishness Guido, you are as Londoncebtric as the rest of them, even tho. the biggest news story in London yesterday relating to events in Belfast 1989 don’t figure on your blog – Why not??

      He’s Irish. He’s probably not so bold about his opinions when they are about things which are close to home. They know where he lives.

      Living in 96.98 percent white Merseyside says:

      It was the lead story on C4 News last night. I thought boring, boring, boring! It was in 1989 for goodness sakes. As a news item it can’t possibly compete with Hillsborough.

      Quite right agents of the state colluded in the murder of a lawyer doing what he was trained for within the rule of law thats alright then!

    Newcastle where the dogs step in human excrement


  22. 39
    Little Ms Narcissist says:

    “Season’s Greetings Chi Unwarah MP”

    Not “from” Chi Unwarah.

    So each card she sends has a seasonal greeting to herself on the front cover. How very sweet. Not quite entering into the spirit of the occasion, though.


    • 46
      Grumpy Old Man says:

      Have you any idea just how much that From would have cost? No effort spared to keep the expenses down!


  23. 45
    taken for a ride again says:

    I assume the cost of each of these cards and the postage is met by you and me?


    • 53
      Bollocks to Getting a Pseudonym says:

      They don’t quite fall within the “wholly, exclusively and necessarily” remit quoted in the MP expenses guide, do they?


    • 71
      its bleak in sunderland says:

      Of course u wouldnt expect these troughers to pay for it themselves,they are not normal like us

    The last post on this will be a dog end.

    You’ll remember me – I’m the one who said that you and Priti Patel were being thick over Hodges and Stemcor.

    Oh dear…look what’s just come up.

    Margaret Hodge MP – Contrary to our report “Hodge faces challenge over family firm’s taxes” (Nov 20), Stemcor, in which Ms Hodge has a small shareholding, has not abused transfer pricing to avoid tax. We accept that there is no inconsistency or hypocrisy in Ms Hodge criticising other companies for tax avoidance and apologise to her for any contrary impression.

    How about an apology from you now Paul Staines?

    And one from Priti Patel?

    Like her party – facing both ways.

    Nice card.
    There’s snow pleasing some people !

    Time on my hands says:

    Definately sending a subliminal message.Dogs looking in opposite
    directions,red colour and boots.Mmm, wonder what it is trying to convey.?

    My Boxer would eat both – and spit out the bubbles! Unfortunately he wouldn’t touch the MP with a bargepole!

    Always useful to have a reminder about why it’s not a good idea to eat yellow snow.

    Your readers will notice the dogs rugs are in the colours of Newcastle United which is where Onurawah is MP.

    Guido. Why do you care if the card is ‘godless’ Lots of people celebrate Christmas as a way of spending time with the people they love.

    I hardly thinking legalising loads of drugs is very christian, but you certainly sign up to that!


  35. 75
    Young Mr Grace says:

    What kind of name is “Chi”? I can’t even read the surname

    Strange but neverzeless wery hinterestihg.


  39. 87
    Eeyore says:

    ‘Godless’ – anagram of Dogless, and that this card certainly isn’t.

    Yet another subliminal message from the Christian right, no doubt.

    Who he ??


  41. 89
    LE PETOMANE says:

    I know they are from a different culture ‘
    but i’ll stick with Turkey

    As it’s a “Whippet” maybe he’s thinking of his expenses claims

    Doggy Expenses

    Anything with a whippet in is fine by me.

    The dog is about to crap out Ed Miliband’s first policy on his blank piece of paper.

    The card reminds us of the sport that we have lost A sport that was 4000 years old a sport of working men and kings. Destroyed by a few mean minded town dwelling trolls !

The Economist asks Tony Blair about Wendi Deng:

“Mr Blair roundly denies any impropriety. Asked whether he was (at least) careless about his reputation, he says calmly that it is “not something I will ever talk about—I haven’t and I won’t”, and then bangs his coffee cup so loudly into its saucer that it spills and everyone in the room jumps. But did he find himself in a tangle over his friendship with Ms Deng? A large, dark pool of sweat has suddenly appeared under his armpit, spreading across an expensive blue shirt. Even Mr Blair’s close friends acknowledge that the saga damaged him—not least financially, since Mr Murdoch stopped contributing to Mr Blair’s faith foundation and cut him off from other friendly donors in America.”
