    WTF? Why does he have headphones; is he a pilot?

      Speculator says:

      Maybe he has headphones in order to listen to music or other audio content, perhaps via a smartphone or other personal media device.

      I also suspect that he is wearing a scarf to keep his neck warm and has a cycle helmet to prevent cranial injury whilst riding a bicycle. To be confirmed…

        They are not headphones they are bullshit deflectors.

          It’s not surprising that someone married to the babe-alicious Joanna Gosling should enjoy being shagged out of a morning!

      A Bangladesh war crimes court Monday ordered a British-based Muslim leader and a US citizen to be tried in absentia for the murder of 19 intellectuals during the 1971 independence war, prosecutors said

      Why are they here?

      Mueen-Uddin, 64, has held positions in a host of top Islamic organisations in his adopted homeland of Britain and was involved in setting up the Muslim Council of Britain – the largest umbrella group in the UK representing Muslims.

      Stavros says:

      He’s put on weight too, probably tucking into too much taxpayer-funded food.

      Time to cut back on the Downing Street catering budget.

Cathy Jamieson MP, Labour’s Shadow Treasury minister, commenting on Treasury analysis of the economic impact of tax changes…

“If the Treasury is looking at the economic impact of tax changes, then surely it should examine the impact of the rise in VAT and cuts to tax credits? George Osborne’s £12 billion VAT rise knocked confidence, helped to choke off the recovery and has cost families £1,350 over the last three years.”
