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…

    Where there’s money, there’s Hain.

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

      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.

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

      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.

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

Mycroft says:

Have you read the last bit of Animal Farm?

You know where the animals are looking through the Farmhouse window?

My TV screen was that window at lunch-time today.

Be careful, the sudden self-congratulatory tone, the slightly pudgy outline of indulgence and you become exactly what you should despise.

The jolly face of the Quisling Cameron poses for your camera has mesmerised and deceived you, you who were once not so deceived.

You were no firebrand, you were a damp squib in my opinion, sorry.

You need a damned good kick up the ahse!
