    Who the fuck is this supposed to be?

  2. 2
    Arnold Palmer says:

    Assume Adam Alfriri (sp) but it’s a guessing game to be sure

  3. 3

    Lembit Opik and Rod Stewart

  4. 4
    Audacity of hope over expectations says:

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

  5. 5
    Lord Mandelspawn - Lizard International says:

    At least Obama will keep us in the EU

  6. 6
    Call me Dave says:

    Worry not, so will I

  7. 7
    Behind the times says:

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

  8. 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…

  9. 9

    It’s thingy.

    You know.

    Another dreamer living in dream city says:

  22. 22

    You are not authorised to perform this action. It’s only your computer after all.

  23. 23
    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.

  24. 24
    Nigel says:

    There’s a locomotif at the end of the tunnel.

  25. 25
    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.

  30. 30
    JIMMY SO VILE says:

    who is that bloke with Jimmy Saville ?

  31. 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

  32. 32
    Mornington Crescent says:

    Is he bl@ck? Maybe someone could ask him when they next see him.

  33. 33
    Gerald Harper says:

    Are you sure ?

  34. 34
    Barry o'Maha says:

    I’m sure he’s certified.

  35. 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.

  36. 36
    Lord Stansted says:

    Opik, Rod Stewart, Adam Alfriri. Who cares? They’re all twats or has-beens.

    Isn’t it?

  39. 39
    Lord Stansted says:

    If the US think so much of the EU then WTF don’t they join it?

    The light at the end of the tunnel is a train hurtling towards you.

    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!

    Kenneth Moor says:

    As my final log entry, Mr Plummy, I impose the ‘New World Order’ shamphoney.

  44. 44
    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

  45. 45
    Nigel says:

    Exactly. Time to pull the plug.

    Is it the black farmer from Devon who says he is going to challenge our Dear Leader, Dave, for leasership of the tory party, seems a nice chap, has been in business and second career in farming, not sure of the Borus big wig though, unless he is acting a stalking horse for Borus.

    rebekah aka nellnewman says:

    She should buy good meat from the butcher, mince it herself and make her own – then she’d know whats in it.

    Time these lazy mp’s set an example to families who live on junk food and then complain about becoming obese.

    Diane Abbott would be a very good role model for home cooking and losing weight and its the sort of job that’s within her remit as a shadow minister.

  66. 66
    unemployed and skint in Birtley Colliery says:

    Any chance of a job ?

  70. 70
    T'Old Fella says:

    Lord S they do actually have a sort of common market, each state sets its own sales tax but they all use the US$ and submit to a central government but each state has its own laws, tax, adinistration etc, quite a few states have thought seriously about going their own way in the past, the biggest in recent times was California

    Chukka Ummunnaaa says:

    I like economy Bergers.

  74. 74
    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.

  75. 75
    Mornington Crescent says:

    It’s been delayed until 2033 – and I don’t mean half-eight this evening.

  76. 76
    rebekah aka nellnewman says:

    Doubt it and chuckusyamoney’s £million plus offshore inheritance I doubt he knows what burgers are – he’s more likely living on champagne and caviar which is about what you expect from labour front-benchers these days.

  77. 77
    stargazer says:

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

  78. 78
    T'Old Fella says:

    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!

  79. 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.

  80. 80
    Well they did for "Maggie" after all and she was more successful than "Dave" says:

    Never underestimate the power of ambition over common sense(or ability)

  81. 81
    Raving Loon says:

    Shadow minister for burgers?

  82. 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.

  83. 83
    rebekah aka nellnewman says:

    Alas the Peter Principle governs the rise of politicians without a doubt.

  84. 84
    Inquiring Minds Want To Know says:

    Is it Dennis Rodman?

  85. 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

  89. 89
    Lock, stock and two smoking arseholes says:

    Quite so.

    Which of the leaders of the three main parties (being generous to the Libdems) would you want next to you in the trenches?

  90. 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.

    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.

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.”
