    I’m sure Hugh Grant will buy himself a celebratory blow job at the news of this justice being done.

    Jesus Christ, I hope Cameron prayed for this man and had faith he would be acquitted in the eyes of the law and also in gods eyes as well.

    Or maybe Cameron has no faith and was actually persecuting and prosecuting poor Christian nurses who dared to wear a cross to work.

    Either way Cameron is a liar and a hypocrite.

      Hugh Grant? I believe it was Divine Brown, though I have no idea of the going rate for blow jobs in LA.

        Divine Brown – No he was no where near. He was right though – It did start in America.

    Arresting members of the press to keep them quiet during a dodgy period for the authorities……couldn’t happen in a modern western democracy…could it?

David Cameron on political promiscuity…

“On May 7 you could go to bed with Nigel Farage and wake up with Ed Miliband. Not one bit of that works for me.”



cynic says:

Can anyone help me? I went on holiday a week ago and returned to find someone has pulled out the stake and Gordon Brown is back and acting as Prime Minister. What did I miss? Has there been a snap election?
