    Opps, Quality control seems to be lacking at the Tax avoiding, pedo supporting Guardian.

    “Celeb reads more than one paper shocker”. Really?

    The Guardian is there. He’s hiding it behind The Times’ cover

      I hide mine in a copy of Razzle. I wouldn’t want my neighbours thinking I’m some sort of leftist puff.

      There are also fewer spelling mistakes in Razzle.

    Point of information says:

    Shouldn’t this be pwned rather than owned ?


  8. 8

    Really? Does this count as news? Slow days at Fawkes towers? And who says he can’t read more than one paper?

    Polly toynbee says:

    He only reads the guardian when I am in it.

    13eastie says:

    The truly excellent crossword puzzle within justifies absolutely the price of a copy of the Guradian, even if the preservation of one’s dignity requires a further purchase of Razzle (or possibly even the Times) with which to effect its concealment.

      Marion the Cat says:

      Another member of the tribe that look at themselves in the mirror and feel that everybody loves them.

      This of course means that we will slavishly believe in everything they grandstand about. Its why they do it folks.

      What they dont realise is, nobody else thinks they are that good and wise.

      So unbeknownst to them lose more followers than they gain.

      Obvious if you think about it, anyone with money can get their knob sucked.

    This is a still from Hugh’s latest film:

    The Englishman Who Went Out to Buy the Guardian but Bought the Times Instead

    That’s Hugh on his morning paper round.

    He also has the Daily Star wrapped up in his copy of the Leveson Report.

    Whats the strap line for the new Hugh Grant Guardian Ad? “I like to pick it up on the street.”

    Raving Loon says:

    The Times? Aren’t they owned by the same media mogul who owned The News of the World?

    Just thought I should spell it out.

    Brian Leveson says:

    What ya gotta ask yourself, punk, is “Do I feel lucky?”. Well, do ya?

    Wheres Liz Hurley?

    George says:

    wow, lots of real jealous people here commenting about him.

    Just remember you keyboard gangsters, he’s done more for the average british guy than 99.999% of other british men.

    He’s pretty much the sole reason why you can fly to america and bang as many american chicks as possible….why? because they all think we’re a gentlemen because of the stereotype we have because of actors like him.

    So…I tell you all, say thanks and quit pretending you’ve done something useful for the male species.

    lola says:

    The BBC subtitles (which I use to watch telly when Mrs L is asleep) interpreted the twats name as ‘You Grunt’. Couldn’t have put it better myself.


  24. 42
    Hang The Bastards says:

    The whinging useless has-been actor will be phoning Leveson as we speak about that photograph.

    What an infringement on his life, I mean it shows him to be a lying bastard

    Hugh Grant is a hypocrite.

    Apparently he’d forgotten his voicemail password and wanted to check his messages.

    Joe McCarthy says:

    He’s just a whinging sex-crazed commie

    Lady Virginia Droit de Seigneur says:

    One wonders what some of the more strident feminists amongst the ranks of the Guardian columnists (Bindel, Bidisha) think of their paper’s standard bearer.

    After all hiring hookers off the street to honk you off in the back of a car hardly seems to sit well with their views of what constitutes acceptable male behaviour.

    fitzfitz says:

    … wee Hugh “Hacker” Grant’s TV appearance after the Divine episode is a useful template for the ghastly Lance Armstrong’s planned cathartic exercise with that black woman …

    Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.

    Divine Brown says:

    Sheeeet Hugh you’s a 24 carat ASSHOLE I’m tired o’ yo cussin’!
    You got caught wid yo pants down.
    Whut de hell wuz ya’ thinkin’
    You’s is nodin’ but some honkyfool.
    You be shittin yo pants at some BLACK pussy yo white boy pussy!

    Max Clifford - honestly says:

    So it’s the Times of July? 2011. Which means that if he bought it for himself, he might then have decided to read The Gaurdian instead from then on, making him a regular reader for the last 18 months, which is 17.9 months longer than most people, including any staff which haven’t yet been made redundant.

    Or – he could have been buying it for a friend. (OK, not very likely – he has no friends).

    Or he could have bought it because on this particular day it gave him the best review he’s ever had – ‘Hugh Grant isn’t quite as awful as he is in all his other films.’

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
