WATCH: Bibi Rants Against Selfies

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has declared the death of the selfie, railing against our enslavement at the hands of our smartphones:

“What do you get out of all these pictures? What do you do with it? I mean, what exactly do you do with it? You took the picture, what happens now?

“I don’t understand this new world, everybody’s taking pictures. When do they have time to live? They’re taking pictures all the time. Only taking pictures, that’s all they do. Pictures, pictures, pictures.

I’m the only person here without all these electronic devices and I’m a free man. You’re all slaves! You’re slaves to your gadgets! You’re slaves!”

How many of us are slaves to Twitter…

    I agree with him. Don’t use mobiles. Don’t use twitter. Don’t even use a wristwatch. Or an automatic oven timer. You have nothing to lose but your bleeps.

    Netanyahu is the honey badger of Israeli politics. He doesn’t care what people say or do about him; he doesn’t give a shit. Go Bibi!

    Hello! – I’m Mr Jelly – but you may call me ‘Dave’

    Before I slither away under my stone, I have to say I have my own photographer who snaps me looking statesmanlike making my grave decisions about how to slide Britain into the EUSSR and my plans for Wind Farm Scams.

    He’s right. I never get in an elevator now without most of the other occupants using their smartphones. Also numerous incidents every day as I drive around London and have to take action to avoid hitting pedestrians who are using their phones as they walk into the road.

    They are good dreams.

    not like the ones where the school bullies find me hiding in the Headmaster’s greenhouse

    Chairman Miaow says:

    ”The horror, the horror”. They call him a pipsqueak, but Ed has touched a raw nerve with the rentier class, watch them form a phalanx in self protection, because of a modest proposal to do wider society much good. A rebalancing of the recurring time-bomb of house price inflation. It did for us not so long ago (2008 crash, sub-prime mortgages sold on to the whole global economic system as a ponzi-scheme), and they continue with it, deferring any reform
    till 2017 – that’s if Dave wins the intervening election, and we pull out of Europe who have suggested measures to re-balance it.

    Now we know exactly where Dave and his pals stand.

  32. 32
    jgm2 says:

    Bollocks. Vote UKIP for any fucking reason you like.

    Me? It’ll be so I can enjoy the look on Clegg’s, Miliband’s and Dave’s faces when they realise they’re no longer the only gig in town. And though I won’t see it I bet the face of the LibDem MEP who sent me a letter this morning that ended ‘every vote will make a difference between us being Great Britain and Little England’ will be a fucking picture on 23 May too.

    Little England? I’ll give you ‘Little England’ you condescending c*unt.

    In 10 years time hip replacements will be a thing of the past, no bugger gets off their fat arse to do anything – no, it will be thumb joint replacements, caused by over use of texts and Twatter – why some seem to be unable to manage without a constant stream of shite is beyond me – just turn the bugger off and live your lives – oh, and vote UKIP – you know it makes sense

    The fucking impertinence of the woman. I’ve never heard of her. Catherine Bearder. My LibDem MEP apparently.

    Checked the list of South East LibDem candidates and there she is, number one on the list. So she’s probably safe but you never know your luck.

    But at number 5 who did I see but an Ian Bearder. So I checked wiki and, what a fucking surprise, it’s her son. And then I read his LibDem profile ‘I have visited all 49 European countries…’ Like he was applying to Brighton Poly to study geography or something.

    Ooooooo. Them Bearder fuckers are due a very rude awakening.

    Ockham's Razor says:

    My proxy form for UKIP has already gone off. It is the first time I have not voted Conservative (apart from one independent councillor who subsequently retook the Conservative whip anyway.)

    Yes! That Little England criticism always makes me smile. Especially when I then point out to my accusers where I live.

    They will find out how every vote will make a difference – the hard way. Condescending c*unts indeed!

    The woman in the photo is called Julie from Manchester and was last seen when this photo was taken in 1987.

    Any information on this EW character will be gratefully received.

    Cameron claims he wants to do ‘whatever it takes’ over a referendum. Everything except actually hold one during the life of this Parliamment.

    What a pathetic piece of scum.

    I know what would happen If everyone tells the HMRC they will ‘do whatever it takes’ to pay their tax and then send them a cheque post-dated for 2017. We’d all end up bankr*pt or in prison.

    We can but hope. Ideally Labour and Tories would lose all their MEPs too. A fucking clean sweep for UKIP.

    Not, as I’ve said, that I particularly blame the EU for our home-grown Brownian clusterfuck because, in truth, the EU was blameless about that. Nope, my motivation is to see them with blood in their stools as it dawns on the fuckers here in Westminster that their days are numbered.
