    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.

      A picture paints a thousand words, you miss the change entirely, he might as well have been wearing a US flag and Homer Simpson donut.

      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.

      If they raised business rates and lowered corp tax they might actually be able to get tax.

Rob Colvile reviews Russell Brand’s new book:

“Oddly, the person I feel sorriest for isn’t Brand himself – although he certainly comes across as a rather pitiable figure, projecting his own brokenness on to the world around him – but Johann Hari. Drummed out of Fleet Street for plagiarism, the former Independent columnist has washed up as “my mate Johann, who’s been doing research for this book”. For a genuinely talented polemicist, it would have been a humbling experience to have to treat this sub-undergraduate dross as the scintillating wisdom of a philosopher-king.”

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!
