Rich’s Monday Morning View

    Clueless in Seattle says:

    Who the fuck is this supposed to be?


  2. 4
    Audacity of hope over expectations says:

    Is Obama running for Leader of the Tory Party next? Should get the BBC onside at least


  3. 7
    Behind the times says:

    Are they the brains behind the TSR2,(how did that go?)

      Synic says:

      It got cancelled as dictated by the Yanks, due to the bail out needed by the U.K. when the Labour Government had bankrupted our economy that time around.

      Every time Labour get in they totally fuck up the economy. Incompetent socialist bastards.

      Unfortunately we will get another dose of them from 2015, due to UKIP being the only way of getting LibCon Dave and his gay mates out.

      Synic says:

      (Mini post due to mod bot getting knickers twisted by the longer version)

      TSR2 got cancelled as dictated by the Yanks as a condition of bailing out the U.K. that had been bankrupted by the then Labour Government.

      What brains, Dave and Gideon say there is no money, everything is being cut down so where have they suddenly got all this money from, that of course is what they haven’t got, is it one of those grandiose schemes like old Sodom’s palace. If the railway companies want it let them pay for it!


  4. 8
    Ronald Regan says:

    Politics is fast developing into celebrity squares. Black, blonde the more eccentric the better!

    Where are the serious people who can command public support without gimmicks? Where are the statesmen who command both home and international respect. To compare any of the rubbish you have in the UK with a President Obama or a Secretary of State Hilary Clinton is simply laughable! The UK is a small set of islands with a matching set of minds…

    Another dreamer living in dream city says:

    I’ve got enough problems with Windows 8, trying to guess who the hell it is, will certainly make my blood pressure rise.

    Was Concorde tax payer assisted?(that went well.)


  7. 13
    Conned no more says:

    I do not care who they are as long as they unshackle us from the wretched EU…

    It’s Ed Milibland after the nose job

    Sir Mary Flappes says:

    Is it Peter Andre wearing a recently departed TorTot mingewig?


  13. 30
    JIMMY SO VILE says:

    who is that bloke with Jimmy Saville ?


  14. 31
    Gonk III says:

    It’s the bloke who was the flatmate of the damp comedy actor who was apparently always a bit bad tempered and grand. Him


  15. 35
    Yvonne from The Colliers Arms Clydach says:

    The Mail right says this guy is going to stand against Mr Cameron .

    The guy himself is going around saying it ain’t going to happen .

    The only thing I know for certain is that someone is telling lies to the public because they can’t possibly both be right.

    After what happened between these two last time I do not know who to believe.

    The sooner we get all these criminal cases finished so that we can have Leveson 2 the better I say.

    MB. says:

    It looks as if Wee Eck is ignoring the advice of the independent Electoral Commission in the choice of question on the Scottish Referendum.

    Scottish independence: Election watchdog brand Alex Salmond’s preferred referendum question as ‘unfair’ and ‘leading’


    A website has been set up mocking him, try voting No!

    JIMMY SO VILE says:

    So Dave is going to announce another multi billion pound disaster for the already over stretched tax payer
    Following in the footsteps of such great government projects
    as the GCHQ computer system it took so long to install , it was already out of date
    Nimrod upgrades , Years to complete , then broken up without ever leaving the ground
    The Channel; tunnel , will never break even
    The Dome , Billions over spend and sold for a quid
    The NHS computer system , years of throwing money at a project, where the promised technology was not even in existence
    The Olympics “not one penny of public money will be used”cost to the tax payer billions, all profits going to the private sector
    Terminal 5
    M6 toll road

    You can just “wake up and smell the coffee”

    Government announces project at a cost of 60 Billion
    Contractors over spend by two and a half times the original estimate
    It takes 15 years longer to complete
    It doesn’t work properly and billions more need to be spent
    The tax payer funds every penny of it , then it is given away to a company
    run by an MP or on who’s board an MP sits
    The tickets are so expensive no body uses it and all the losses are picked up by the taxpayer via huge subsidies
    every year despite massive losses , the board of directors award themselves enormous bonuses for failure


    To stand any chance of success, MP’s should not be let anywhere near it

    Long John Silver's parrot says:

    I think the guy with the blond hair is Mr Fabrication from the Conservative Party .

    I have no clue as to what this is about.

    rebekah aka nellnewman says:

    His political timing in challenging for the tory leadership is as ill-judged as militwit’s refusal of an in/out referendum.

    Doesn’t exactly mark him out as a possibly inspired leadership contender.


  25. 77
    stargazer says:

    A suntanned Jimmy Hill or Bruce Forsyth. The prominent chin is a giveaway.


  26. 79
    WRONG! says:

    Is ‘money’ really what the country is looking for in a PM? Is the antipathy towards Dave a result of his lack of personal wealth? Does Ed lack credibility for the same reason?

    I just have some doubts that- in the current climate- the country is really crying out for a leader who is filthy rich.


    • 82
      rebekah aka nellnewman says:

      Well at least he’s not hiding his wealth unlike the militwits who tried to pretend they were poor whilst manipulating inheritance tax behind the scenes to increase their already overflowing wealth pot.


    • 85
      Is there no politician with the guts to actually lead ?(Don't answer that I know the answer already) says:

      Actually the country isn’t bothered about whether the incimbent is rich, privileged or went to public school or Oxbridge what the country is looking for in a PM….is ability,competence and the belief of their own convictions and vision which they stick to rather than following every bit of public opinion;Guardian Leader writers and the BBC or the media in general and changing their policies every day to suit the latest focus/interest group or current bandwagon.

      I fear that all 3 leaders of the main parties without exception are the latter type of politician rather than the former type

    Inquiring Minds Want To Know says:

    Is it Dennis Rodman?

    Tap it, unwrap it says:

    Peter Hain after bariatric surgery?


  29. 90
    rebekah aka nellnewman says:

    Does anybody know if THAT court case is still ongoing this morning? Are they going to tell us the outcome when it’s all over or will that be silenced too?

    This doesn’t sound like British justice to me rather something that happens in dictatorships.

      You will know the outcome when Mr Huhne is leader of the LibDems

      albacore says:

      It’s a serial, not a one-act play
      As good tomorrow as it is today
      A rootin’, tootin’, proper cliffhanger
      A crackerjack, not some titchy banger

        Kieth Vaz says:

        al, you’re giving me an inferiority complex.
        Try as I might I cannot come up with a decent ditty in the time allowed.
        Do you give lessons?

        ( eg what rhymes with lessons )


      • 122
        rebekah aka nellnewman says:

        Your’e rhyming comments always make me laugh! Wish I could do it.

    T'Old Fella says:

    Just a thought, what makes Stringyfellow think he would get in in Sheffield on the UKip banner Guido, when Sheffield started going downhill he could not wait to get out of Sheffield, I doubt Sheffield torys would leave their own club and join Stringfellow

    Lord McAlpine debacle has left us with a weak & gutless media. #Fernbridge is the biggest scandal of recent times yet BBC won’t touch it.

    Not JUST the BBC.

      Travel Options Inc says:

      Main focus on Beeb this morning (after Brazil club fire) was the demo in Paris in favour of gay marriage. Can’t say I noticed any similar item on Sky though. Odd that…

      No Peers of the Realm arrested today then?

    New Code for Crown Prosecutors is streamlined version of document guiding prosecutors and police on charging decisions http://bit.ly/X3eSJ5

    Travel Options Inc says:

    Discussing the new train set, bloke on Sky today asked bird on the sofa what it would be like travelling at 200+mph. What could you see?

    Short answer is nothing as scenery outside window goes past too fast for passengers to be able to take in. Close up at this speed induces sea sickness equivalent and giddiness. Only distant views will be possible.

    If they really want to know, suggest taking a TGV from Paris to the south of France.

      Ouch !! Susannah kicks Gidders in the nuts for breakfast says:

      Gideon got a good pasting this morning from Susannah Reid on BBC Breakfast about the economy Plan A and HS2…Gideon had a rather sickly grin throughout and looked a shade pale… .. That’ll teach Osborne to try and bullshit a feisty female

    geeky says:

    This new man, the man who on the strength of a couple of newspaper reports, is likely to be the new Tory leader…has anyone ever heard him speaK?
    He might have a weedy little fruit voice like Ed

    How many economy burgers would 650 MP all minced up make?

    I’d like to cover Big Ben with a large, inflatable, fabric structure shaped like a penis. Where should I apply for a grant ?

      Just PFI it.

        rumpleforeskin says:

        if I could get this sponsorship I would then like to purchase the construction of a giant hot air balloon shaped like an anus and by skillful piloting lower it onto the edifice. I’m sure this would make a good artistic statement and entertainment and I could put it on the internet. Where would I apply for permission ?


        • 142
          rumpleforeskin says:

          perhaps I could incorporate a banner in the way of a strap bearing the logo “only gay boys need apply”
