So, Danczuck likes birds with big tits then

Hardly the world’s worst fetish, is it?

Sophena, who turned 18 at Christmas,

Ho hum, single man uses current media to approach single women. My word, aren’t we outraged?

Our society insists, by law, that she is old enough to decide who she wants to fuck. By two years in fact. Great, the flip side of that is that people get to offer to fuck her.

To repeat an old joke

Tee hee

“It was amazing how quickly the cold shoulder came on.” Richard Murphy, tax expert and father of Corbynomics, has heard nothing lately from Labour’s shadow chancellor and Jeremy Corbyn’s right-hand man, John McDonnell.

Back in the summer, when he was propelled into the political limelight by the Corbyn leadership campaign, which was keen to show it had a coherent economic platform, Murphy began to assume he would take a senior role in Labour’s shadow Treasury team.

He was, so I am told, telling all and sundry that a peerage was on the way.

What he actually got was 0.2 of a professor, which looks excessive at that.

But then people collaborating with the Murphmonster after they’ve worked with him for a week or two is rarer than rocking horse shit. Can’t imagine why, obviously.

Oh aye?

Embattled socialist President Nicolas Maduro, who lost control of Venezuela’s National Assembly in polls earlier this month, said on Tuesday that fraud had marred the vote, which was being investigated.
“I am not going to release preliminary results of the investigation … There were a lot of things going on. Buying people’s votes … control of members of polling station teams and entire polling station teams,” Maduro said on his weekly television show.
“Criminals were buying votes … There was a plan,” Maduro added on VTV state TV.
The president claimed the result of the December 6 legislative polls – in which the opposition alliance MUD won control of the National Assembly for the first time in 16 years – was “circumstantial.”
Maduro said he would soon reveal what he called the opposition’s “plan” to the nation, along with evidence. He did not immediately say when.

Because of course the people could not possibly have voted against incompetent fuckwits, could they?

Dear God I despise this

The New Year’s Honours list has been released, and while there are plenty of names on it that are well-known, there are many other recipients that you may have never heard of.
That’s because these people are ordinary Brits who have done extraordinary things – and now they are being recognised for their work.

I know to an extent that this hatred is irrational but it really does get to me, this description of people as “ordinary”.

We see it in Westminster often enough: “ordinary families”. We see it here in the honours lists, “ordinary” people. It’s grossly condescending: there’s this group over here, which we speakers and writers and proper people belong to, then there’s that undifferentiated mass over there of ordinary ones. “Ordinary” people doing extraordinary things: it’s akin to congratulating the traveler on the short bus for having managed to stop eating his crayons.

We’re all Darwin’s special little fucking snowflakes and don’t you bloody forget it you uppity little ass.

What an astonishing scandal this is!

No lender sues more of its customers than Capital One, according to ProPublica’s review of state court data.

Really?

The bank has only the fourth largest credit card portfolio as measured by both numbers of cardholders and balance size, but such a large portion of its cards are held by those with poor credit that it is the country’s largest subprime lender.

Country’s largest subprime lender sues more debtors than other lenders.

Seriously a shock, isn’t it?

That Islamic takeover

Some Europeans seem rather more keen on it than others.

As all will know, all around here being edumacated, the Algarve was part of the Muslim world once (Al Garve meaning “The West”). And the next town over, Silves, seems happy enough for it to be so again. Or at least that’s the message I get.

All the towns around here have little signs as you enter: you are now entering Messines, have a nice day sorta stuff. And as you leave, thank you for your visit and come again soon.

OK, and these are normally in a few different languages, Portuguese, Spanish, English, maybe German and or French. Except for Silves which also has that “come again soon!” message in Arabic.

The Arabs left here in 1251 or so……

Who?

Former New York Governor George Pataki said on Tuesday that he’s ending his bid for the 2016 Republican presidential nomination, with just over a month to go before the first nominating contests begin.

Sounds sensible really. I know quite a bit about american politics, even if I’m not a complete junky. And I know who he is. But I have to say I didn’t know he was running this time around. And if a working journalist doesn’t know you’re in the race then maybe you’re not doing so well.

Lala Lalalala Lala

Well, gotta admit, it’s catchy:

A song released by the Pegida anti-immigrant movement is racing up the charts in Germany despite being widely ridiculed.
The track, entitled Gemeinsam sind wir stark! or Together We Are Strong! is being marketed as an anthem for Pegida, and sold to raise funds for the anti-Muslim movement.
Released just before Christmas, it has quickly risen to number 10 in the music charts on Amazon’s German website.
But the song has been greeted with mockery and abuse for the fact it has no words, and instead features a chorus humming along to the tune.
“Wow, stunning, monumental. Especially the text: ‘Lala Lalalala Lala’, genuine poetry,” one reviewer calling himself Franky wrote on Amazon.
“Super, in time for Christmas, here are all Pegida’s arguments in musical form, collected in a single, glorious anthem that should silence the fiercest critics: ‘Mmmmm mmmmmmmhhh, mmmmmm mmmmmhhhhh!’” wrote Dorian Grey.

Also, perhaps a little less worrying than the songs of old.

Die Fahne hoch! Die Reihen fest geschlossen!
SA marschiert mit ruhig festem Schritt.
Kam’raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,
Marschier’n im Geist in unser’n Reihen mit.
Kam’raden, die Rotfront und Reaktion erschossen,
Marschier’n im Geist in unser’n Reihen mit.

And?

Two leading independent schools allow teenage pupils to drink alcohol at on-site nightclubs, it has emerged.
Rugby School and Ampleforth College, a Catholic school with an adjoining monastery in North Yorkshire, both allow students to drink at the venues from the age of 16.
They hope that by teaching the teenagers how to drink in moderation and under supervision, they will foster sensible habits and prevent them from going off the rails, according to The Times.

This was going on 35 years ago. I know damn well it was too, I used to run the damn bar.

What mistake?

Environment Agency chairman Sir Philip Dilley spends Christmas in Barbados while Britain floods
Sir Philip decided to bask in 30C heat of Caribbean despite promising he would not repeat the mistakes of his predecessor Chris Smith

He’s living in luxury and getting £100k a year for a part time job.

What mistake?

Ritchie the trade economist

And as for suggesting ‘free trade’ will work, that is risible and exactly the opposite of what countries in Europe and the US did

That will never work and the economists who suggest it will have never encountered the real world

Guess we’ll have to abolish the EU’s single market then as free trade just obviously does not work.

Sigh.

Yep, Jessica Valenti sure is dumb

Why are top women politicians still peppered with gender-specific slurs?
Jessica Valenti

Because gender is one of the things used to construct and create slurs and insults. As are height, lack of it, dick size, tits, baldness, looks, beliefs, background, race, sexuality, intelligence and absolutely any other human attribute. You short arse, dickless and pancake titted, hirsutely ugly liberally stupid middle class American cissexist idiot you.
