End of the Jonah Jinx?

Has the curse of Jonah finally been broken?

Gordon Brown was present yesterday when his beloved Raith Rovers beat Rangers 1:0 to win the Ramdens Cup.

He even cracked a smile…

Gordon has always taken a keen interest in Raith Rovers, going as far as to negotiate the sale of players in a pub car back while he was the Chancellor. According to Damian McBride:

What spare time Gordon had up in Scotland he poured into not just supporting his beloved Raith Rovers, but pulling strings behind the scenes at the club, sometimes becoming a bit too involved. I rang him in October 2006 and said I’d had a call from a Scottish journalist who’d heard the bizarre rumour that Gordon was seen in a pub car park in Kirkcaldy after midnight apparently negotiating contract terms with Trinidad international Marvin Andrews. Gordon was silent, then said: ‘Have they got photos?’

Finally the long curse that has blighted sports teams, markets, aeroplanes, banks, companies, governments and nations looks to be lifted. If the curse of the one-eyed son of the manse has been lifted, we hope Gordon’s tormented soul will lighten too…

      Gordon Brown says:

      The other day I did a magic jobbie. Nursie says it’s wrong to play with mah poohs, and that jobbies cannae be magic, but what does she know? She’s another one of those bigoted women.

      Anyway, I smuggled my great big magic jobbie past Nursie by putting it in mah dressing-gown pocket and then put mah hands in mah pockets. It wis just like the wee trick I played with the empty tinnies, a brick and a carrier bag when I was a student, and it proves how clever I am and a’ that.

      I played with the magic jobbie for hoors and hoors, making wishes and chatting away tae him until he went all melty and Nursie caught me and made me have a shower to get all the magic off mah face and hands and out of mah hair, but Nursie disnae understand that it was me who saved the world, with a wee bit of help from mah magic jobbie!

      If I sniff really hard I can tell I’ve got some of the magic still under mah fingernails…. I love that smell, it’s the smell of mah cleverness and moral compass and Socialist principles all rolled into one. Magic!

      Raith could go into administration next week, be penalised 15 points and thrown out of the league.

      Duncan Smith “It’s a witch hunt”. A bit fucking rich coming from the man that has led the witch hunt against the sick and disabled.

    Guess Miller hasn’t resigned yet.

    Has Cameron finished crying in the toilet yet ? Or is he on his second bog roll ?

        There must be more to this than Cameron’s idiocy or desperation to hold on to a female. A party donor, perhaps? Could there be even more corruption here?

        A Landowning Sponger says:

        “Oh, look! Look at the Lefty”.

        The Lefty shambles towards the car, mouth open, drooling & slack-jawed. He stops, mystified- it’s a lovely new BMW 5-series and onboard are five well-groomed and intelligent individuals. None of them are Lefties.

        The Lefty is disturbed- deep within his retilian hind-brain, something is troubling him. Is it that itch? He shoves his hand down the back of his trousers to scratch that pesky perineum, then has a sniff of the finger…. no, that’s clearly not it.

        It’s something else. Something about… the car? The people in the car…. yes,yes, it’s the people in the car! They’re successful! They’re wealthy! They’re not- wait for it- they’re not Lefties!

        And so the Lefty’s rage explodes deep inside him and he responds in the only way he knows; with a guttural roar born of jealousy and resentment and sheer blind class envy and prejudice he utters the immortal words: “Fucking Tory cüuunnnntttsss! It’s all Thatcher’s fault! Tories are eeevvvillll!”

        “Ha, ha ha!” go the nice people in the lovely car.

    “I am the crisis that will leave you homeless,
    The heart attack you have through stress,
    The reason the hospital you need is closed,
    The prescription you cannot afford,
    The food shopping you cannot buy,
    The reason you feel ashamed to be disabled,
    The reason you no longer have a job,
    I am the reason you are called a scrounger,
    I am David Cameron,
    This is the Tory Party,
    We are your crisis,
    And we don’t care who or what you are

      I am the crisis that will house immigrants over indigenous people
      I am the crisis that overspent Billions of pounds to idle chav scroungers
      I am the crisis that got involved in useless wars
      Iam the crisis who gave away our gold reserves
      Iam BLAIR
      Iam the crisis who did fuck all about it
      Iam CAMERON

    Guido notes: “Finally the long curse that has blighted sports teams, markets, aeroplanes, banks, companies, governments and nations looks to be lifted”.

    But that was the case when he announced he’s saved the world, surely?

    Maybe though, it only kicked in when he told the media he was now only a former politician.

    Raith should certainly check their player staff to see if Gordon sold the reserves.
