Rouhani is a Good Sport
Iranian President Recreates Famous ‘Dave of the People’ Shot

In a further sign of diplomatic warming between Iran and the West, Hassan Rouhani has recreated the famous “David Cameron watching the sports like a real man” photograph. A far more significant move than opening any embassy.

      And the Iranian’s settee is facing the telly, unlike Dave’s chair which is situated sideways on.

      Does Dave really dress up like that at home?

          Gosh can Dave actually operate a remote ?
          Or is that telephone by the telly a give away admission that he phones downstairs every time he wants to change channels ?

          • ?…and Rouhani i has the good grace to stock up on a drink and nibbles whereas Dave limits himself to one out of reach cup of
            tea in case he were to spill it a la MilkyBrand and the foto go viral .

            Not very good at multitasking ( watching telly , nibbling peanuts and taking a drink simultaneously ) our UK pols …

      “Fashion and politics – a very powerful combination”
      About from this being a vacuous statement it shows a misunderstanding of what politics is – a means by which those who have been elected by the people serve those people. Being an MP isn’t meant to be “fashionable” or cool. This posing little ponce should spend more time with his constituents and earning the money he gets.

    “A far more significant move than opening any embassy”
    would be to pose a few simple questions to these giant brains, and watch as their operating system crashes. An example of that bug infested algorithm follows: Let’s go to war over which end up to open Dodo eggs. Hold hard! There are no Dodo eggs. Never mind. Let go to war anyway, just for the searing hell of it.

      We had to go to war because if we hadn’t gone to war there would have been a war anyway. Which is why we should go to war again. The problem was not that we went to war but that we didn’t go to war often enough and that we are not at war right now.

      And that is why I am the Middle East Peace Envoy.

    Just making sure I’ve got this straight.

    1. we invaded Iraq, because we were very worried religious fundamentalism in Iran. And we wanted to secure Iraqs oil supplies from the hands of the religious loonies.
    2. We withdrew our troops because we couldn’t win a war against an insurgency that we created by invading in the first place.
    3. So now we ask Iran to invade Iraq for us so gifting much of the Middle East oil supplies to the people that we were trying to prevent having them in the first place?

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?
