WATCH: Jeffrey Joke Falls Flat

Labour’s Anas Sarwar becomes the first to make a Jeffrey joke in the House, no doubt to the annoyance of many a bookie. He could have at least made it funny…

    Pretty damn excited to be speaking at Left Field at Glasto. Who’s going? http://www.glastonburyfestivals.co.uk/areas/left-field … And thanks to Guido Fawkes for the invite.

    But what does a foreigner know about British humour?

      Someone on the Internet says:

      Here’s hoping that was an ironic example of British sarcasm, rather than simple racism…

      • 16
        Blighty says:

        No. Just the bleeding obvious that Jocks haven’t got a British sense of humour.

          I thought this site was about free speech says:

          typically pathetic Labour. And let’s not forget how dodgy his dad is

          Bollocks to getting a pseudonym says:

          There’s no such thing as British humour. The only nations in these islands with a sense of humour are the English and the Irish.

          • Dodgy Dad says:

            That’s because they are the jokers in the isles.

          • Little Tommy the Southern Softie says:

            Sense of humour isn’t that great. Can’t handle a couple of Frankie Boyle gags, (the English establishment that is), nation of Mr Beans. Irish are fine.

      stop fucking about! bomb Syria!

        Old Blind Pugh says:

        Tell you what Dave we will fly you to Syria and you could be the bomb, that would scare Assad

    The regulars says:

    Jeff bin in?

      Old Blind Pugh says:

      There some people call Gideon something more fruity than “Jeffery” that’s mild and more British than Gideon for heaven’s sake

  4. 4
    That's a cracker! says:

    Is his name really Anas.

    How is it pronounced?

    Anus Aware

    Jeffrey Osborne says:

    I thought it was rather amusing

  7. 9
    I piss on muhammad says:

    Nonsensical joke, since the error wasn’t Osborne’s but Obama’s, and yet he recites his obviously rehearsed one-liner as though it’s a jibe against Osborne himself. Moron.

    Albert Hall says:


  9. 13
    Surely he did says:

    Didnt Osborne reply that he was happy not to called after an arsehole?

  10. 14
    Ed Milibland says:

    Best Leave the comedy to the leader of the opposition.

  11. 15
    John Ward (Medway) says:

    Methinks that someone with the name ‘Anas’ should be very wary of misquoting other people’s names, in case the tables are turned upon himself…

  12. 17

    Anas or Anus the life and soul of any party. A laugh a minute for weddings, christenings even for funerals.

    Teri says:

    Anas Sarwar has had a sense of humour by-pass. He couldn’t crack a joke if he tried. In fact, he probably thought he was cracking a joke. The main joke about Sarwar is that he is deputy leader of the Scottish Labour party whose leader is a bit of a joke too.

    Ruby Red says:

    Anyone who can do the Bunga Bunga at age 76 gets my vote.

    Derek and Clive says:

    You could be on the radio with stuff like that.

    Didnt his father that well known Scottish patriot Mohammed keep the seat warm for him,the Bhuttos of Glasgow one unkind wag once called them.

      Clown Killer says:

      Nothing patriotic, or Scottish about those people (just the accent, kind of). They’re British unionists. These political classes (devoid of all class) want to destroy any sense of Scottish (or English) identity. A parcel of rogues.

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.”
