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.

    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.

    FFS how long does it take a jury to come to a decision?

      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.

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

    Peter Hain, the guy who egged on Mugabe to fuck up Rhodesia and the ANC to fuck up ZA. A great African indeed. Puke.

Rod Liddle on the loony UN sexism special rapporteur:

“There is more sexism in Britain than in any other country in the world, according to a mad woman who has been sent here by the United Nations.

Rashida Manjoo is a part-time professor of law at Cape Town University in the totally non-sexist country of South Africa (otherwise known as Rape Capital Of The World).

Mrs Magoo has been wandering around with her notebook and is appalled by the sexist “boys’ club” culture here, apparently.

I don’t doubt we still have sexism in the UK. But is it worse than in, say, Saudi Arabia, d’you think, honey-lamb? Or about 175 other countries? Get a grip, you doolally old bat.”
