Great Burgers Of Our Time

Ed better think again about that pasty-gate style trip to McDonalds, he’s no stranger to a posh burger himself. Presumably more of an emmental cheese and Diet Coke man.

Meanwhile Clegg has gone out to bat for the Chancellor on LBC, confessing he also eats at Byron and is partial to their Oreo milkshake:

Grant ‘McLovin it’ Shapps? Well he’s just a man of the people:

Great burgers of our time…

Ed Vaizey makes his own (H/T @asabenn):

Whereas Dave and Barry prefer wieners:

Size isn’t everything for Boris:

Vince Cable went to Maccy D’s but stuck to the coffee. He doesn’t look like he was McLovin it.

William Hague and Kevin Rudd prefer long ones:

      I’m a lasagne and taco man myself.

        Tay King-dePisse says:

        Yvette looks like she might fancy the odd tuna taco herself once in awhile, let’s be honest, but nothing wrong with that as long as Ed’s comfortable with it.

    Nelson Mandela says:

    My condition is extremely “stable”.

    I’ve been “stable” for several days, in fact.

    News management, I think they call it.

      It's a mad,mad,mad,mad lefty world says:

      Some loony left London council have just voted to give Nelson Mandela the freedom of the borough.
      Sycophantic and insensitive both at the same time.

        Romany Blythe's saggy left tit says:

        The 19 innocent civilians that Madiba personally ordered blown up in a church bombing didn’t get much freedom.

    Gangam Style says:

    Which is worst ?

    a) Eating unhealthy like this ? (Where is Demented Abbot ?)
    b) Feeling you need to keep up with the Osborne’s ?

    They’re just horsing around.

      Make your own newspaper says:

      That’s not bunny! Ed Balls is making a right McHash of things. Its time he was packed to go. And he can take his McFlurry of press releases with him.
      And take that no star trainee Miliband with him.

      Big Momma says:

      So much for the politicians and their healthy eating dictums.
      White bread, starch, sugar, salt and chips.
      Notice there are very few slim politicians now, all girth and no savvy.

    Vote L/L/C for (as yet undeclared) expenses says:

    BBC: My milkshake brings Lib Lab Con boys to the yard, I’m like, it’s better than yours, I could teach you, but I have to charge.


  13. 19
    Sir William Waad says:

    It doesn’t do to enquire too closely how burgers are made. It all goes in, you know! Lips, nose, spleen, genitals, the slaughterman’s laundry……


  14. 20
    The Douche Burger says:

    This would be more appropriate:


    A snip at $666 : A seriously decadent / expensive burger.


  15. 22
    George gideon towel folder Osborne says:

    “Your community will receive £100,000 for each fracking rig you allow”
    Hurray !
    Yet More money for the councilors to embezzle on expences

      They can put a fucking rig in my garden for hundred grand just mind the kids trampoline.

    Mayor BloJo of Gotham City says:

    Dont’ foget me Guido

    I will offer Pippa a burger and then play ping pong with her world famous derrière

    Exclusive right for 100 grand OK?

    HM George V, DG R&I, UK of GB&NI, Defensor fidei, says:

    Bugger burgers.

    John Prescott says:

    For breakfast, I had 200 Big Macs. I’m on a diet.


  22. 39
    Ronald McDonald says:

    At least Osborne’s choice, albeit a staged one, is better than Brown’s, who apparently lived on chocolates, fizzy drinks and bananas. So, not only the emotional intelligence of a 12 year old but also the diet.


  23. 41
    Woeful little man says:

    Grant Shapps must be the biggest non-entity in politics.


  24. 42
    Living in 97.2% white Merseyside says:

    Who eats what and where seems like something out of a film magazine of the 1930’s. Difference is, is anyone really interested?


  25. 45
    Mad Cow says:

    I’ve already made my contribution to the burger meme.

    Mandy asked for extra guacamole on his.

    Smelly Socks says:

    Don’t rate Byron myself, Hache are much better. Can’t see what’s wrong with eating food you like.

    Hoots! It's Clown says:

    Burgers! Michty me, nothing but Lorne Sausage in a bap for me, laddie!

    Ya bas.

    Tachybaptus says:

    I recommend the Douche Burger, which costs $666 at 666 Burger, New York:

    ‘Created by Franz Aliquo and the 666 Burger food truck in New York City, the cheeseburger features a Kobe beef patty wrapped in gold leaf, foie gras, caviar, lobster, truffles, imported aged Gruyere cheese, melted with champagne steam, a kopi luwak barbeque sauce and Himalayan rock salt. The owner of the food truck, Franz Alique, has this to say about the world’s most expensive burger, “It consists of a fucking burger filled and topped with rich people shit.”’

    Everyone seems to be missing the fact the McDonald’s burgers are F**king Horrible! Who can blame the man for wanting to eat something actually worth eating!

    Merton Resident says:

    hold the front page – The chancellor of the exchequer is paid above average wage, and is of above average wealth, and can afford a burger that is more expensive MacDonalds.

    Someone in the office went to collect it because he was working late.

    Well f*&k me sideways with a pitchfork, who would have guessed that happens in modern Britain?

    Really people is this actually of any interest? I mean at all?

    Ministry of Truth says:

    Those aren’t long burgers, Guido, they’re sausages.
