There is a God! So I suppose it is entirely appropriate that the Good News arrived on a Sunday! There is nothing quite like the sight of a truly obnoxious politician tripping over his dick and falling headfirst into a bucket of brown stuff. And when the politician concerned is of Olympic standard obnoxiousness, like Keith Vaz MP, then let the celebrations begin!
Caught out like so many before him, by those deeply unlovely, dandruff-ridden hacks of 'Fleet Street' indulging himself with male prostitutes and drugs. So farewell then, Keith, don't think it's been fun knowing you because it hasn't!
Vill ze Kaiserin get a jackboot in ze bum? Yes, sorry for my imperfect German but today there are local elections in Frau Merkel's constituency and the indications are that her party vill be shot will be given a smack. I do hope so because it will be yet another piece of falling masonry indicating that the European castle is about to collapse.
Be afraid, be very afraid if 'HillBilly' wins: The woman is unfit to run a corner shop! She forgets the name of a US ambassador murdered in Libya, she loses countless mobile 'phones containing sensitive information, she lies about everything because that is her default position, she withheld 17,500 e-mails from an investigation, she can never remember anything and she is arrogant and stupid. Trump may be bad but is she any better?
For Goodness sake, Lewis, put your foot down! Look, I know my titchy, 10-year old Toyota isn't much but even with that I could have got off the grid at Monza quicker than Lewis Hamilton did today! I'm grumpy because these days I don't have too many sporting heroes to worship, in fact, I don't think I have any! But I do have a soft spot for Lewis Hamilton. He's black-English, he's eccentric and he's a terrific racer. Today, for the 'umpteenth' time he was left wallowing on the grid despite have thrashed everyone else to gain pole position. Now he's only two points ahead of that sulky-looking Hun who drives the other Mercedes. Come on, Lewis, do buck up, your country expects and all that!
Two truly great headlines: I am indebted to Mr. Thomas Lifson of The American Thinker for telling us of two utterly memorable headlines. Alas, being a Brit I never had the chance to read the originals but now that I know of them I will never forget them. The first was from The New York Post in 1983 following a particularly horrible crime that had just been committed:
"HEADLESS BODY IN TOPLESS BAR"
That, I would suggest, deserves a Pulitzer prize! But another, equally brilliant headline was published just this week in The Washington Times:
"Time to take the keys away from Granny Clinton!"
Dammit, if I bash out this blog for another ten years I would never think of such an inventive, witty and deadly accurate heading.
And talking of Grannies past their sell-by date: The Kaiserin's party - in her own constituency (see above) - was duly squidged in the election today finishing third! Next up are some Italian elections, followed by the French and then there will be German national elections and one by one these mad, one-eyed, European fanatics will fall. The result will be catastrophic for Europe but they have brought it upon themselves.
No more rumbles today
