      Can't use me old moniker says:

      Dave, on toaday program, when asked what he will say on the EUSSR said, and I quote:

      Squeek, squeek, squeek.


      • 19
        Tell me Prime Ministter...Just who exactly supports you ?? says:

        He was asked who were his allies in the EU for renegotiating UK’s terms of membership and could only come up with Holland(whose PM denied any knowledge of Dave’s keynote speech this week scheduled for The Hague)and Germany(whose politicians inc Merkel have said that they have had enough of Dave’s carping and UK should just make it’s mind up but no re-negotiations are in the offing)

        Dan Stato says:

        It does you no good to listen to Cameron on R4 Toady this early in the week.

        What a slimy, duplicitous, mendacious quizzling he is.

        By lunchtime I will be a member of UKIP.

    John Major left front line politics 15 years ago though.

      trolls are tossers says:

      No. As far as I know he is still hiding out overseas after the African disaster and mummy’s sad decline.

      the general public says:

      Hope so, one down one to go. Their crimes against satire and the drawing of cartoons deserve the full penalty of the law.

      My bet is on Terrance Waggon? Can’t be carrying on like that in the beeb and not be in that “club”. Elm Lodge in Barnes that London, was it?

    What a hoon.


  14. 25
    Ctesibius says:

    I always accepted that the pointlessness of ‘Rich and Mark’ was part of charm of the Guido experience, but I think the joke has reached its end-point now.

    There’s a sort of post-modern irony in laughing at a cartoon that is supposed to be funny, but which isn’t. But repeating the experience week after week after week and eventually it dawns that the irony is perhaps no longer ironic, and that ‘modern’ is no longer ‘modern’.

    The one positive is that this cartoon makes starting work a bit more alluring.

      T'Old Fella says:

      Stop moaning, you know you like the mental exercise early morning to deduce who the cartoon character is, it’s a bit like hard crossword, you feel pleased with yourself when you solve the clue

    14th January 2013 By Daily Star reporter
    MOST Brits admit to having no idea about politics.

    A poll by TV channel Gold of 2,000 adults found 62% rate their political knowledge as average to poor.

    One in 10 do not know what number Downing Street the PM lives at and 18% that William Hague is Foreign Secretary.

    Tax is theft says:

    Can somebody explain this cartoon to me please?
    No, really.


    • 45
      T'Old Fella says:

      No, but that is what Guido wants you to solve, he knows a lot of this blog are in an alcholic haze after Saturday and Sunday, a chance to kickstart those little grey cells.

      Vote4Ukip says:

      I think it is some sad dickhead trying to portray UKIP as racist.


      • 96
        Vote4Ukip says:

        Apparently it is not racist to hate Americans but it is racist to not want to have your country run by corrupt, anti-democrats from across the channel. Funny old world.


  17. 32
    BREAKING NEWS Bank of England says:

    For several years the USA have promised budget deficit reductions but the deficit over the last 20 years has now ballooned to a massive 16 trillion dollars.

    As a result of the “fiscal cliff” settlement we think it highly likely that the deficit will increase during the next 12 months .

    THe Bank has a duty to protect sterling holders and investors and this duty is independent of Government. To achieve this end from noon today The Bank will insist that paper dollars are henceforth covered by a deposit of 0.075 grams of Gold .

      “Abacus” are you sure Gideon can use one competently like they still do in the far east

        Loopy Lou says:

        It would be much more sensible to pay for pensions by raising Vat by say 0.125%.

        We would then all be able to pay for our pensions in our purchases.

    After years of squandering taxpayers money and giving your money away to every third world country on the planet ,these cheeky bastards are upping national insurance yet again !
    If we were not giving 55 million a day to the now prosperous third world EU eastern block shitholes , you would still be able to retire at the agreed age of 65 with a much better pension than we have now

    Bring on Nigel and Ukip before these clowns do any more damage

      NI is a tax on employment. This will raise unemployment still further!

      This is in no-way a conservative government.

      VAT is the worst tax on employment and they raised that too.

      The europhiles have got the BBC, most of the Civil Service and politicians, Common Purpose graduates, Erasmus Scholars; regiments of helpers and billions of our cash, and can even call on the US for help.
      It’ll have to rot from within.
      And it will, despite the best spin from Draghi and Barosso.

    Cameroon says no chance of referendum before next election. pity he didn’t say that before he last election. Looks like the public will have to have their referendum via the ballot box in 2014 or sooner !

    I’m surprised the cartoonist (and I use that in the loosest sense of the word) didn’t just use the first two words of the first line and the last word of the tenth line.


  37. 105
    Tom Catesby says:

    Just a thought on the referendum and Britain’s current membership of the EU. Has anybody else noticed the steady build up of scare mongering via all branches of the media about the ‘dire political, social and economic consequences’, of leaving the EU under the present ‘arrangements’? It is interesting to see, who has been crawling out from under their metaphorical stones, to try to frighten the British people, in pursuit of their own interests or misguided ideologies.

      Obama wants us to stay in the EU and has lately also announced that we must not curb our defence spending just in case he needs some more cannon fodder Yukistan, Vote Democrat!.

      Mental Elf says:

      Article 50 of The Lisbon Treaty would establish exactly the terms we would accept if we leave the EU.
      Why will Cameron not use these facts to put the argument for staying in?
      He prefers to hide the truth and rely on scare stories.
      This is the treaty that was so important when Brown signed it, Cameron broke his cast iron promise.


    • 114
      Lord Effingham says:

      Well, its going to be fun watching Cameron try to ‘renegotiate’ our membership of the EU, as that’s what he’s pinning all his hopes on. Especially as the EU (or at least the bits that matter) have already said ‘No’.

      Setting himself up for an epic and humiliating failure. He he.

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.”
