    This content doesn’t seem to be working, try again later.

    Guido, you really should use more reputable sources than the BBC.

    David Cameron says:

    Plus I have no respect for the dead and am a shameless self-publicist.

      Mr Cameron,

      Like most people, I voted Conservative because you have a lovely wife and beautiful children. What can they be thinking now they have had to see pictures of you thrusting yourself upon Mrs Kinnock at Mr Mugabe’s funeral?

      I, myself, met a black man in 1944 during an air raid, and I can assure you that no amount of nylons are worth what they want in return. Take it from ‘one who knows’ that Mrs Kinnock is hardly the sort of person who will respect you and your family when the moment counts.

      Yours etc

      E Pence (Miss)

    Chris Patten never says:

    No TV Licence Payers were threatened with prison in order to bring about the making of this video clip.

    Mitch says:

    Making a fairly lame joke about it doesn’t excuse what he did. He is the Prime Minister and should take these things more seriously.

    Tachybaptus says:

    Has George Osborne given up on Austerity? . IDS is writing off £40 million, Hammond has wasted £7 million and Gove is over-spending millions on Free Schools in areas where they are not needed. Pot-Hole Pickles is wasting thousands on biscuits and Cameron and Osborne are promising that they will go on cutting spending indefinitely.
    Perhaps it would be a good idea to get a Treasury which stops Departments wasting money on their Pet Projects before slashing spending on services.
    Or has Gidiot grown his own personal money Tree?

      Pie in the sky. There will always be excessive waste when the state insists on doing things for us that we can do ourselves.

    Tristram hunt being monstered on Boulton. He really is not up to his brief

      Fishy says:

      Meanwhile, on The Daily Brillo, Foghorn Reevezzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz continues to use the ‘I dunno, I wasn’t an MP’ defence to explain Labour’s record in office.

      Then she assists Brillo in interviewing the Tory.

      Bryant says:

      Up to his briefs? I should say so.

    Chris Bryant MP says:

    Oh, for the love of Christ, he had his trousers on, and he was pictured from the waist up in any event– not much of a “selfie,” when you’re going to do that. What’s the point?
    And my good friend Anthony Weiner heartily concurs.

    The clue’s in the name

    Fishy says:

    I heard that Labour supporting BBC twat Evan Davis, suggest on Toady this morning that Cameron seemed to be doing a Vaz by leaning in and photo-bombing the Obama / Kinnock selfie.

    Neil Kinnock father in law and trougher says:

    Well alright, well alright.

    These people deserve to be voted out. How about a start next May!

    Can’t wait for the leak of the images of CMD being royally kebabbed by Mr and Mr Obama

    Ain't seen it all yet? says:

    I preferred the video of the fake sign-language guy.

    I seem to recall coalition boasts about imaginative job-creation schemes funded by foreign aid !

    Meantime, back in the U.K. it’s no doubt the sort of idea that Labour/Reeves have in mind for their proposed “jobs guarantee” project.

    (Not so)Dangerous Brian says:

    Did you see Michelle’s face?
    Double bollocking for the Obama god on airforce one methinks, and with a white eyes too.

    Just Sayin' says:

    No shame, no pride, no self-respect, a fool. Have we sunk so low that this person (I’m not going to call him a man) is our leader?

    And a ‘by the way’, if I were Vladimir Putin, I’d send in the invasion force today.

    non taxable pikey says:

    While our “leaders” were messing about in SA the first heavy snow fell on the refugee camps in and around Syria. 800 thousand children in them so far plus the million and a half adults. The first small child died due to the freezing conditions last night.

      Non taxable pikey says:

      Overnight 3 children died due to hypothermia in the Arsal refugee camp in Northern Lebanon. Maybe “call me Dave” would like a selfie of them?

      • 49
        Non taxable pikey says:

        The child death toll from hypothermia in the Syrian refugee camps as of now stands at 20.

    Whatever one thinks about the Nelson Mandela cult , the sight of national ‘ leaders ‘ behaving like teenagers at a pop concert must be the most astonishing spectacle shown around the world ,it is impossible to imagine Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan sinking to such depths , obviously these morons have no respect for the office they hold or the people they claim to represent.

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.”
