  1. Sounds like a win-win, the Yanks get him fuck off to Azerbaijan and he rules himself out of British politics forever…

  2. International Rescue – is he in the fucking Thunderbirds now?

    Well, his brother makes a living modelling for Aardman I suppose.

  3. As long as he retains that air of deeply aggrieved bitterness then I’m fine with this.

    Watching him lose to his gormless idiot of a brother is something that still bring a smile to my face.

  4. I suspect that is the mistake gormless Hillary is making, Mr Pants, she thinks she’ll get to ride in the Thunderbirds.

  5. This is consistent with the old line of the Labour Left that the Labour Right are all getting paid by the Yanks.

    To which I suppose we must add Ted Heath. Who else?

    dearieme – “To which I suppose we must add Ted Heath. Who else?”

    It would be an improvement if Blair was paid by the Americans.

    Presumably in the new Labour Party the Americans are passe. All the cool kids claim they are paid off by Zionists now.

  7. This is news?

    Fairly standard political class revolving-door stuff if you ask me.

    Once you’re one of them you can’t fail, you just float effortlessly from one highly-paid sinecure to the next until you reach your inflation-proofed retirement.

    This is one reason why Trump is so popular – he’s not one of them.

  8. Damn foreigners taking all of our jobs.

    First they came for the fruit pickers and I said nothing because I don’t pick fruit.

    Then they came for the janitors and I said nothing because I’m not a janitor.

    Next they came for the overnight stockers and I said nothing because I’m not a stocker.

    Then the H1Bs came for programmers and I said nothing because I am not a programmer.

    Now they are coming for the diplomats and no one that earns a paycheck is left to speak for them.

    The common thread is a politician that is only concerned about the needs of their paymasters.

  9. The Laughing Cavalier

    Given his very poor record in the NuLabour years Mrs Clinton is welcome to him.
