    Tachybaptus says:

    ‘Metrosexual’ is derived from the Greek μήτηρ, mētēr, mother (as in μητρόπολις, mētropolis, mother city) and the Latin sexualis, sexual. It therefore means someone who fucks his mother.

  24. 24

    BBC on Six O’Clock news:

    Segment on Olympics / Jubilee: Brtiain is now perceived as being a more friendly country overseas.

    Segment on Algeria: Britain killed and Algerian government did not consult number 10 before they weighed in on the hostage situation.

    Common sense says: A few tourists may think Britain is friendlier, but other governments consider us to be total c’unts at present. And this has zero to do with the Olympics or Jubilee.

    To understand the heavy, look into G@zprom / Son@trach talks – LNG.

    Add in some EU attempts to coerce Ukraine round to the union.

    Consider this:


    And consider what is going in Turkey / Syria – Kurdistan in particular, and the fracking moves in US / UK.

    Layer the Mal! issue on top and you have a real Eton mess.

    Come on Guido play catch up.

  58. 58
    EU Watch says:

    One would suspect it is being destroyed by the ‘terrorists’ to get UK / Norwegian interests out.

    The UK should be preparing plans now for destabilization of the Algerian government. Sending the French in should help do that.

    not a machine says:

    mmm have to wait and see then on EU speech if algerian gas plant is definite can only speculate on why they wanted to leave with prisoners …

    His graces rather thoughtful piece (cranmer) , had me wondering if Ben Bradshaw was a practiisng member of the CofE or come to think of it any other members of this obscure panel . I mean the more you comprehend his tweets , the more you realise how feebel his political wording actually is , is he saying that someone cannot oppose what he thinks ? in perpetuity via law in an institution that is rooted in the spiritual , or is he saying that the spiritual is some sort of fraud ? I mean to put it bluntly he couldnt have tweeted a bigger expose of liberal fascism/athiest persecution of the church , if he sat for ages thinking one up .

    To be followed by a further 10 min article on the missfortunes of Labour saints , in not realisng those bankers (and not the figures process by 13 yrs of labour treasury) were just busting the country and creating poverty that would be diffciult to get top side of .

    Ministry of Truth says:

    The US do not directly supply arms to AQ.

    AQ come into possession of American arms when they loot or buy second hand kit from various countries which the US has supplied in the past.

    US has funded AQ, however indirectly: This was through illegal charitable orgs which have been broadly shut down. These are not tied to the government, a few though may have been CIA fronts.

    S Arabia / Ch!na / Russ!a do may supply ‘modern’ kit, but not directly.

    Main funding has been from S Arabia / Brune! / France and misc. ‘!slamic’ charities around the world. The Brune! issue is notorious as this was tied to the first super !njunction being used against Parliament itself.

    There is a conspiracy, but it is not what people have been led to believe it is. The Grauniad cannot be trusted on its coverage of any issue – it is a hostile source.

    AQ itself is more myth than reality: A label created in order to help portray disparate !slamic radical groups opposed to liberal ideologies, but otherwise mutually exclusive entities.

    Orienting Foreign Policy against this mythical organization is good propaganda for the Western masses, but has been responsible for many lost opportunities for diplomacy where simple understanding of a specific groups concern could have enabled a calm negotiated solution without loss of life.

    Spot here an explicit left collectivist tactic which has been used many times in order to perpetrate crimes against large numbers of people.

  69. 69
    Bollocks to getting a pseudonym says:

    It must have crossed your mind once or twice. You Grauns tend to be seedy, creepy types.

    So long as they do not repeat any time soon the Oborne Dispatches piece where Broon is both massaged and the country is warned: Put this loony in power you will be sorry for at least 2 generations, I can live with that.

  71. 71
    P l e b says:

    The idea of lightweight Cameron overseeing anything as important as a hostage crisis, must be truly frightening for the families involved.

  72. 72
    P l e b says:

    I don’t acknowledge this bloke Cameron as my ‘leader’, nothing at all actually, but I take it this is his presidential moment?

    I can understand why he has cancelled something that pales into comparison, but I am afraid I am too cynical to think that he has done it for any other reason than to boost his popularity by doing the right thing.

    Our Ruling Elite never do anything that they don’t think will benefit them or their mates.

    rebekah aka nellnewman says:

    He looks to me very like a leftwing met office chappie ‘ there maybe a smattering of snow tomorrow – then again it might rain’

    When of course the weather dumps 1ft or so of snow on us and -5 temperatures it will be necessary to blame someone else for the error of judgement!!

  79. 79

    Don’t worry about it . Just take edmilitwit for your leader instead- he’s excellent at not making any policies and not taking any decisions about anything!

  80. 80
    EU Watch says:

    Austerity, removal of free milk in schools, intransigent external problems which screwed up the countries balance of payments resulting in inflation and high unemployment towards the end of Wilson’s second term likely major factors.

    Wilson’s rhetoric of ‘strivers and scroungers’ – back then more focused on ‘scroungers and welfare cheats’ combined with general benefit cuts seemed to disenfranchise a lot of the Labour support, leading to numerous seats lost in by-elections prior to the General election.

    Heath sold mainly on the idea of free market reforms in the ‘Selsdon Man’ document, which Wilson derided in a moment of political mis-calculation.

    In fact the picture pre 1970 looks very much like the picture now, and would be identical if Broon had somehow won the 2010 GE.

    Hmm take my word for it will and when it starts to puther down the beeb and the met will change their weather channels which are saying it might rain or snow to say it is actually snowing!!

    Alistair Campbell Murderer says:

    Pfft! I’m looking at three different forecasts (Met Office, Metcheck and XCWeather) for my area, and they all say different things.

    The Met Office says: Heavy snow, end of the world as we know it, watch out for polar bears.

    Metcheck: 1mm of sleet, or thereabouts.

    XCW: rain.

    It’s already snowed here. It only amounts to an icing-sugar dusting so far, though.

    Could get rain and snow together, of course. Nasty conditions to be out and about in.

    It’s probably a symptom of global climate warming change. Either that, or it’s a symptom of it being winter.

    One thing which has been overlooked in the UK Press that when France went in to Mal! Hollande declared a ‘ l’union sacrée ‘

    Not that this is a good time to point out the political gains which Hollande is obviously going to attempt to make, such declaration has curious timing given the what is happening in domestic politic over there.

    Could this be partly symbolizing that they are perhaps considering an exit ? Or is this just a call for unity in order to protect a strategic economic resource.

    Pak!stan Watch says:

    Pak!stan is off most peoples minds at the moment. Interesting, as there is much brewing down there politically:


    Snap elections are being called for this March since a Canadia-Pak!stani al Qadri (a cleric arguably closer to military / Taliban) returned and started stirring things up properly.

    Anyone familiar with the ins and outs of the TAPI project may get what is going on. Forgiveness of crimes committed against the Baluch nationalists by the Zedari government go directly to reassuring the military and those who have raised stake money for the pipeline.

    One would prefer Imran Khan over Qadri from the UK point of view. The politic of Pak!stan is of course grounded around the military. The US has left a supply vacuum which Canada has no problem in filling, perhaps it would be better for the UK to position itself for this role ?

    Given that they are the fastest growing nuke power it would be better for UK to be involved than anyone other than US.

    US does not have the motivation, as evidenced by their ceasing supply.

    UK could do with the exports.

    The headlines do not really matter, that is lefty brainwashing. After !raq you cannot really get much worst.

    All that is important is trade and influence. Would be a coup if BP could get rights to build a refinery where TAPI is likely to come out on the coast of Balochistan.

    (To your point though, keeping out of the genocide which is going on in Balochistan to clear the way may not be a bad move.)

    Coaxing Pak!stan back to being part of !ndia would be a smart move. This may happen one way or another within the next 10 years, it would be preferable for it to happen via friendly absorption of the P military.

And WTF has it got to do with St Ombamamamba whether we stay or leave anyway?

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.”
