A Picture of the Prime Minister Breaking the Law

The Prime Minister claimed at PMQs that he had never broken the law. What about that time he was busted going through red lights?

He was reportedly fined and gated during his time at Eton College for smoking cannabis which remains illegal. And Dave still hasn’t really told us about that Masters in Columbian Studies that made up his “normal university experience”…

    If you ask me and I am asking so there this daft t_w_a_t needs to be brought down to earth and learn about real lifes of people who work for a living and get some common sense instead of prancing round like a big suthern jessie on his two wheeled Eton bicyle it’s part of the new agenda that Ed is putting in place with Harriet and Yvette called the Age of Chancers and I’m working on this as part of my contributation to the Party to make it work for choice in partnership with public-private to bring traffic cones out to the streets so that this sort of thing doesn’t happen and poncy toff bicyclers like Cameroon will have to walk in future but in the end the people will decide which is that is what the Age of Chancers is all about and it was Tony’s vision all along in consultating with Gordon.

    Gentleman, if I may interrupt, I think you’ll find it depends on what the meaning of the word ‘green’ is. You see ‘green’ and ‘red’ are just waves on a spectrum of light and it is entirely possible that the photographs indeed show the lights on green.

    Terrible But True says:

    Just as the BBC and others have managed to get the notion of ‘truthiness’ to mean, for a limited few, a version of truth that applies only to, and serves only their interests, it seems almost all of both Houses appear to have created ‘Lawliness’, which is like the law, but not when they break it.

    ‘Lawlessness’ is something else entirely, and what they they accuse all others of when throwing the legislative books at them for heinous crimes such as failing to stump up the TVL poll tax or being rude, or ‘ist on twitter.

    Any other way would mean anarchy. And let that be a clear example to us all.

    David Cameron also appears to be following the policies of Richard Coudenhove Kalergi (if you do not know who he is then I suggest that you google him) which are against the People of Europe. Perhaps this is the reason why Dave is so pro EU. Time for him to go folks, make way for UKIP, vote the other wasters out of Parliament altogether.

    maybe David thought he saw the red lights of amsterdam and was eager to see the lovely ladies lol so he followed the snow trail past the big shiny red light like the little tiny fly he is, do we really care if they legalize or not, we are still getting what we want, i mean would you really want the money you give for your weed to go to the government, make them more rich and useless, f**k it, lets just keep it as it is and give all the money to the criminal underworld, that way in another decade or so they will be even more rich and powerful than the government, then uk and possibly the world will be owned by the mafia, and we can have crack babies robbing people on the street in there hoddies, 10 year olds will carry guns, no jobs cause of no businesses will be running, the whole country will be one big fat slum, then we will be living in a world with no law, no police, no army, nothing, cause they too are people and it will effect them also, there children, mothers, fathers, siblings, in forty years look what prohbition has done to the world, so much pain, imagine another forty years……..we will be living in hell, either that or commiting suicide just to escape it, well done UK govenment, you have to be the best in the world, amazing, one more thing to add, if the rest of the world is legalizing and controling, and we in the UK are the ones that don’t, then understand that you have left an open market for all the crimanal gangs in the world to come and set up shop here, not only will they come, but because we are one of the minority countries,they will come from all over the world to take over the cannabis industry but at the same time they will also be at war with eachother to gain control of it all, then not even the police will have any power nor will the army, these people have no fear, they do not think like you government, they would kill their own brother if they wanted to, no morals, no love, or feeling sorry, nothing, Uk better think about this and get with the program of other European countries or we will all be screwed.

    Disappointed in Guido, sorry, but there it is.... says:


    If you look at the top dead centre of the middle image and then the right hand image you can see how there is an amazing example of an aerial above the roof that is present in the right hand image, but completely absent in the left hand image. Plus a two foot break in the string of lights in the middle image as it crosses the road and where the aerial should be.

    Pretty clear that someone has, with very considerable skill, stitched a differently timed left hand half of the image with red light showing onto an earlier or differently timed right hand image with cyclist.

    Plus which there’s nothing whatsoever to confirm that the sad be-shorted middle aged cyclist is our Dave in any event. Not saying its not him, but its pretty easy to stage some balding middle aged bloke riding away from camera….

    Bit sad that you should fall for such an obvious one Guido, I thought better of your skills, particularly as a long time supporter of your efforts.

    However the pathetic attempt to tack on a long dead cannabis + Colombian marching powder controversy non-starter for 10 in addition is really a bit McBride-sad isn’t it ?

    You know full well that neither allegation has the legs to even get started without evidence to hand. If you had such evidence then no-one on this earth will believe you wouldn’t immediately publish it. And good luck to you if you do.

    But if you don’t then innuendo and smear won’t do old chap, won’t do, won’t do.

    Plus which you are on record as a supporter of recreational drugs up to and past the Colombian as I understood your proudly proclaimed history ?

    I thought you were the enemy of hypocrisy, not its propogator.

    Disappointed in you old chap, very.

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.”
