    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.

      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.

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

      Time to cut back on the Downing Street catering budget.

Dan Hodges on Team Miliband:

“‘Poisonous’, was the picture painted by one former senior advisor. ‘Dysfunctional,’ said one shadow cabinet member. ‘A bunch of medieval courtiers, not an office,’ said another. The most positive description I could get was ‘It’s a work in progress. They’re learning. Slowly. But they are learning.’”

Nick Clegg says:

Do you want lies with that?
