The Weirdest MP Christmas Card Yet

    Perhaps they like dogging?

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

    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!

    Alasdair Campbell Murderer says:

    Is Chi Onwurah a real name?

    Steve Miliband says:

    It’s a lurcher to the left

  12. 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.

  13. 13
    Steve Miliband says:

    Thought Toon supporters didn’t wear shirts?

  14. 14
    Barbara Woodhouse says:

    Oh I don’t know – the Whippet looks like it might have the “Turtle’s Head”…

  15. 15
    The burgermeister says:

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

  16. 16
    Honey Monster says:

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

    The hare is running at Haringey.

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

    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??

    I was with you for the first and second sentences, but you spoiled it with the last one. Two out of three is not bad.

    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.

    We are about to shit on you

    Jesus (you know, the guy whose birthday you're celebrating) says:

    And me, of course.

  29. 29
    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.

    Toon Dog says:

    we know that knobhead, it is still shite

    It’s got some Chi Huahua in it as well.

    Sheesh, everyone thinks they have a PhD in comparative religions, when all they do is recycle intellectual garbage.

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

  37. 37
    Chi says:

    Newcastle where the dogs step in human excrement

  38. 38
    Grumpy Old Man says:

    It’s worse than that – it’s a rip-off of the Roman festival of Saturnalia, a time of conspicuous consumption, shagging and drinking into oblivion. Apart from the name, not a lot has changed in 2000 years

  39. 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.

  44. 44
    Sid says:

    why couldnt she have a typical Toon scene card of two drunken slappers with next to nothing on?

  45. 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?

  46. 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!

  47. 47

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

    Murder not generally classed as tittle-tattle.

    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?

  53. 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?

    Definately sending a subliminal message.Dogs looking in opposite

    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?

    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.

    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!

    Oh dear, you lot have missed the obvious subtlety.

    You may note that the fawn dog’s tail is tightly up against its rectal orifice.

    This is what’s known in the trade as “covering ones arse”.

    Chi Onwurah clearly knows his/her/its stuff.

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

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

    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?

  97. 97
    duh says:

    Yeah it’s not as if she was born and raised in Newcastle or anything, is it? Google is your friend mate.

    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 !

George Galloway says of his former Respect candidate the UKIP MEP turned Tory, Amjad Bashir…

“Clearly Bashir does not have any real political principles or commitment, only naked opportunism and self-interest. He represents the revolving door principle in politics. The Tories are welcome to him because he will cause them embarrassment. Fortunately Respect was able to act before he did it to us.”
