Sophistry Corner: Celebrity Edition

Oligarchus russius

Oligarchus russius

No, I am not going to start off another rant against the steaming stream of Balkan Gypsies who may take up residence on otherwise peaceful and clean riverbanks. For the rubbish taking up residence here also includes those loaded with way too much money for their own and everyone else’s good. Read the rest of this entry »

A journey…

A journey...

of lies and deception.

Honestly, how can anybody believe a word this slimy worm has to offer? I know I am a card-carrying, unrepentant Blair-hater, but come on… Appropriating lines from a film and putting them in your autobiography? How truly pathetic is that? Well, as bad as taking some student’s essay and using it as the basis for the existence of Iraqi WMDs perhaps. Read the rest of this entry »

Scraping the barrel

Scraping the barrel

Having twice been snubbed, first by the electorate and then – perhaps more gallingly – by the Liberal Democrats, those chaps and chapesses in Guardianistaworld seem pretty upset by the last week’s events. They spend much of their time pontificating and acting all holier than thou, but are actually the worst of the lot when things don’t quite go the way they’d like it. Read the rest of this entry »

So here we begin.

So here we begin.

It has happened. David Cameron is Prime Minister, and the country has its first full coalition government since 1945. After thirteen long and often infuriating years, the Labour Party have been consigned to the opposition benches. When I try thinking back to 1997 it reads like ancient history: the days when I was still working in the insurance industry, and when the Internet was just a frivolous way to waste time. OK, so I am no longer working in insurance. Read the rest of this entry »

The final straight

The final straight

Two days to go until polling day – and things are hotting up. Soon, all of the stage-managed propaganda and sloganeering will come to an end – and with it the end of thirteen years of Labour government. Read the rest of this entry »

Tango man is back…

Tango man is back...

Here’s the scene.

Gordon Brown takes a battering from Messrs. Cameron and Clegg during these new-fangled televised debates, failes dismally at trying to smile for the cameras, and then abuses a member of the public. Cue the entrance of none other than our old friend Tony Blair, looking more orange than ever. Read the rest of this entry »

Of trousers, Learjets and bendy straws

Of trousers, Learjets and bendy straws

I have this rather idealistic belief – call it foolish if you must – that politicians get into the business to serve the people they represent. Of course, this has never been the case as the vast majority of them have always been in it for themselves, but as each day passes by their piss-taking credentials seem to increase almost exponentially.

Littlejohn on Labour

Littlejohn on Labour

While I may not be the biggest fan of columnist Richard Littlejohn – the guy is a too much of a Zionist and fan of America for my tastes – there are plenty of things on which we agree. Read the rest of this entry »
