Hain’s African Adventure
Appointed Director at Major Mining Firm

Peter Hain’s trip to open a school in Sierra Leone last week seems to have gone well: he managed to land yet another job along the way. He’s just been appointed as a non-executive director at Amara, a major mining company that has subsidiaries in Burkina Faso, Mali and the Ivory Coast. Sounds like a nice little earner…

    The ability of total tossers to pick up sinecures again and again never fails to depress me.

    Andrew Efiong says:

    Where there’s money, there’s Hain.

    I see a fellow board member is called Peter Spivey. Hain will fit in right away.

    An idiot in wig and gown says:

    Gordon Brown? Gordon Brown? We are searching for you Sir. Are you CERTAIN that he is a member here? We don’t have any record of him for some time; perhaps we could cross check with the expenses people.

    An interested observer of Huhne's nemesis says:

    Or not come to a decision if the case relates to the former Ms Huhne and the jury consists of thick bastards.

    My theory: The jury realise that she’s as guilty as sin but haven’t the heart to punish her because she dropped Huhne right in it. It’s a theory.

    Hain is an old fashioned exploiter of the poor, well he’s an exploiter full stop. Jimmy, bless, has yet to cotton on.

    I fear that the large number of comments likely will be unable to match the accuracy and brevity of Throbber

    In rekindling his African interests he obviously isn’t worried that he might again find himself in the frame for bank robbery…

Boris on British Jihadis. Apparently based on MI5 intel:

“If you look at all the psychological profiling about bombers, they typically will look at porn. They are literally w***ers. Severe onanists. They are tortured. They will be very badly adjusted in their relations with women, and that is a symptom of their feeling of being failures and that the world is against them. They are not making it with girls, and so they turn to other forms of spiritual comfort — which of course is no comfort.”
