Gordon Curses England’s World Cup Hopes

Speaking to journalists at today’s Press Gallery lunch, the Prime Mentalist has put paid to any faint hopes that England have in Brazil, hardly helping the Better Together campaign either:

“I will support England in World Cup.”

You might as well fly home now boys.

Despite this devastating turn of events, Eric Pickles is refusing to give up hope. The Three Lions flag will fly from the top of DCLG on Thursday, for the first day of the World Cup. “We chipped in to buy the flag at no expense to the taxpayer,” they assure Guido. Pickles hopes to recover some luck for England – his namesake Pickles the dog recovered the stolen World Cup trophy in 1966.

    Tim Yeo-Yo says:

    McDoomed. Did anyone see the useless one-eyed cnuts interview on Sky this morning? He is utterly deluded and clearly mcmental.

    Praying that he now curses the “no” vote.

    The Growler says:

    I am not really interested in footie but a lot of folks have concluded that England’s chancers of winning is as remote as a snowflake in hell, with or without Gordy’s curse, who knows his curse power might have been extinguished!!

    First time that mong ever supported England in anything.

    Scots Wahay etc says:

    Er apparently …. he’s just crippled the NO vote. Says oil won’t save independent Scotland.

    Jimmy Hill says:

    he’s lying as usual. He has no intention of supporting England, so maybe the curse won’t work.

    Vote Tory, get Sharia. says:

    Oh, isn’t that nice? Eric ‘fatfuck’ Pickles bought a flag with his own money! A whole flag! Saving us taxpayers hundreds of billions of pounds £1.99.

    Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, big fatty fatfuck Eric Fatty Pickles! You can wobble off somewhere and congratulate yourself for saving us £1.99. We’ll let you and your party of complete retards off for doubling our nation’s debt. It’s the least we can do!

    No doubt that tub of lard is wasting millions of £’s elsewhere, so this faux economising is actually an insult to us.

  12. 12
    The FA says:

    It would have been acceptable to fail to get past the group stages after our strikers failed to score and our defenders failed to defend. We’d still have a lovely time meeting, greeting and bribing FIFA execs.

    With Mr Brown’s curse we’ll be lucky to avoid a runaway medical cart taking out the team in the tunnel of Arena Amazônia as the players make their way to the pitch. This would completely ruin our chances of enjoying the hospitality of the Brazilian people.

    Gordon Brown says:

    I am insane. No, seriously – I am.

    Am I meant to feel inadequate in the presence of men who know about football?
    Biggest bunch of fucking boring bastards since trainspotting went out of fashion.

    Realistic says:

    Don’t think England’s chances are THAT high!

    Rooney did nothing in world cup when he was in his prime. He’s now slower, fatter and much richer. He shouldn’t even be in the squad.

    Prepare for earliest possible exit.

    Stop making people unhappy!

    Make them work and stop benefits


    • People derive less satisfaction from their lives when they receive more state benefits.
    • They feel greater satisfaction and happiness when they have worked for their money.
    • This is true even when the money that is received by those two different types of household is exactly the same.

    You Flag if you want to says:

    Probably not the cleverest thing that Gordon has said, given that only yesterday he condemned Alex Salmond for waving the flag and supporting Scotland.

  21. 21
    Parliament is a Gay Disco says:

    so as an act of revenge Gordon decided to ruin everyone elses?

    Plain common sense and a fact of life.

    In fairness, Tony has form here … how many did he indirectly help kill, let alone ruin their life?

    Get along to the Nene Valley Railway or any other “Railway Preservation Society” (except Network Rail of course) and you will still see all the anoraks.

    Maximus says:

    Implies that the Great Scotch McBustard has evolved some self-awareness of his reverse midas touch. I doubt it. More likely McTwattie has simply seen a popular bandwagon he wants to hitch his trough to.

    What does Brown the Hatter tell his son when the lad asks him why the intelligent people in this country think he’s an unspeakable pile of shit?

    Curious. I agree with you wholeheartedly.

    If England fail to win the world cup it will only be because of a technicality. The technicality being they are crap.

    So why did not some impertinent hack ask him why he never turns up in HoC and wouldn’t if be a good idea if he just resigned and fucked off out of our ives.

    Footall pundit says:

    If England miraculously shake off the Jonah curse and meet Brazil in the latter stages of the competition, would it pay the Brazilians to play an old girl at centre back with instructions to get tight on Rooney?

    The Wisdom of Rachel Reeves says:

    OK I know I sound like Olive from On The Buses, but I am very bright and speak a lot of sense.
    I think England will win that world cup thingy and Gordon Brown is a lovely man.

    Who would want to do a thing like that?

    That fcuking creep in the picture looks like he doesn’t care where the World Cup was held as long as there were some kids he could molest. I hope the sicko is exposed. Might be the first decent thing the mirror ever did if they could.

    The Curse of Gordon says:

    Does the curse work if Jonah is telling lies rather than being a delusional fantasist?

    There’s only one way we’ll find out. Par is to be knocked out on pens in the “round of hate”

    It’s clear that the curse does apply to soccer as, despite a fair number of decent haggis-fucking players and managers, Scotland has never qualified from the initial group stage during Jonah’s lifetime.

    Pity supporting the poverty stricken locals doesn’t seem to be part of anyone’s game plan. Little wonder then that they’re going nuts in Brazil.

    Proud to pay for some fat slob to go watch the footie says:

    You can bet your life that if England get out of the qualifying rounds still in the competition, half of parliament will be booking some “cultural and fact-finding” visits in Brazil that they need to go on. I am proud, as a taxpayer, to pay for that.

Alan Milburn says Labour’s scaremongering campaign for an unreformed NHS will not win election…

“It would be a fatal mistake, in my view, for Labour to go into this election looking as though it is the party that would better resource the National Health Service but not necessarily put its foot to the floor when it comes to reforming. Look, reforms are not easy, but the Labour Party is not a conservative party. It should be about moving things forward not preserving them in aspic. You have got a pale imitation actually of the 1992 general election campaign, and maybe it will have the same outcome. I don’t know.”
