“I don’t know if they were tasered”

The news was met with a resounding cheer. They have been warned to be careful who they speak to in bars and restaurants. There is an unconfirmed rumour doing the rounds that some of the journalists have been nicked. Developing…

iPoker Face

If you are one of the most senior US politicians attending a crucial hearing on potential military intervention in Syria, being snapped playing poker on your phone doesn’t look great. Well that’s what happened to John McCain last night:

Suppose the British equivalent would be Tom Harris watching Doctor Who on one of his many taxpayer-funded iPads…

Labour Charging Members for Laughter

What’s the only thing worse than an email from the Labour Party? Well one that opens with “Your invitation to join Eddie Izzard and Jo Brand” must be pretty high up the list.  Labour are organising “Stand Up For Labour” – an evening of comedy with scant disregard for the feelings wheelchair bound members. The name reminded Guido of the last time he heard a politician utter those words, and given it’s a very slow Friday in the middle of August:

Apparently the event will “you rolling in the aisles with a great night of laughs for Labour.” A feeling many of us do not need to pay £30 for the daily pleasure.

Weiner Sexting Girl Shoots Celeb Porno

Continuing in the age old tradition of getting your kit off after being caught up in a political scandal, Sydney Leathers is not even bothering to wait until Anthony Weiner loses the Democratic primary in the race to be the next Mayor of New York. The latest girl involved in in his ongoing scandal fuelled slow motion car crash comeback has already managed to shoot a porn film:

The Barry and Dave Show

Everyone got something out of that Obama presser. Labour are pushing the President’s line that “I think the UK’s participation in the EU is an expression of its influence”, while No.10 will be cock-a-hoop with the endorsement of the renegotiation strategy: “You probably want to see if you can fix what’s broken in a very important relationship before you break it off.” Those Tory Eurosceptic backbenchers are such big Obama fans, a gentle chiding from the him will definitely get them to pipe down and fall into line. Needless to say Dave dodged most of James Landale’s four parter question.
