Fashion Tips For Men Over 40. From The Archives Of Stirring Trouble

Adam Lovejoy writes from London: It’s this time of year when we at Stirring Trouble look back at some of the stuff we posted in the past that has attracted the attention of our readers. And it seems that our fashion tips for men over 40 that first appeared in the autumn of 2009 is still one of the most popular articles on our website. So today we repeat it again, for anyone who might have missed it: TipN1: Never-ever wear a dark suit with light brown or grey shoes. A dark suit only goes with black shoes. TipN2: Never wear a striped tie with a striped shirt. Only men with no taste do that, including provincial politicians, trade union officials, small rural businessmen, farmers and TV presenters of left-wing orientation. TipN3: Avoid wearing striped suits with striped shirts. This never looks...

Talking To My Cat Kiss. About Good And Bad Corruption

Alexander Nekrassov writes: I sometime wonder what would happen if my cat Kiss could talk. He’s a cunning cat, you know, and he has his own views on life and its little problems.  Anyway, I can just imagine a conversation between us on the subject of corruption that would go something like that: No more good corruption around these days, Kiss points out to me, as we are sitting in the conservatory, meditating. It’s raining outside and we are not in the mood to venture out. Kiss is lying on his mat and I’m sitting in my rocking chair. How would you know, I say. You’re only five. Kiss shakes his head. That’s thirty-five in human years, he says. I’m a mature cat, so that you know. Still an eligible bachelor in the cat world, as they call me. Mind you, in our cat...

TV Presenter Affair Injunction Story Gets A New Twists: Reward Is Offered For His Name

Ted Obvious writes from London: The dramatic story with the famous married TV presenter, who took out a High Court super- injunction to ban the media from reporting about his affair with a woman at work, has taken a new twist. Stirring Trouble has received an email from a wealthy individual, who has offered to pay ten grand to a charity of our choice, if we reveal the TV presenter’s name. So keen is this individual to find out who it is, that he is ready to part with a lot of money to satisfy and other people’s his curiosity. It is a tempting request, especially as we have a good charity in mind that could benefit from an injection of cash to help vulnerable people through these hard times. We are currently talking to our lawyers about it, trying to access the consequences of breaking a...

Meeting Margaret Thatcher: Why Britain And Russia Are Natural Allies

Alexander Nekrassov writes from London: Let me tell you something that might surprise you: Britain and Russia have always been natural allies. Both nations – on the level of ordinary people, not politicians – have always held great respect for each other and in the past broke the backbone of the mighty armies of Adolf Hitler, saving Europe and the whole world from the Nazis, while both going bnakrupt and losing the empires as a result. Don’t listen to all that rubbish about the United States coming to Europe’s rescue. Britain and Russia were the ones who took the hit for everyone else and brought Hitler’s regime down. Unfortunately, there have always been groups of politicians, both in London and Moscow, who did everything to damage relations between the two countries.... 

A Member Of The House Of Lords Writes To Stirring Trouble

A Member Of The House Of Lords Writes To Stirring Trouble

We have received a letter from one of the hereditary peers in response to our article about Tony Blair’s attack on the House of Lords during his years in office. The text of the letter follows: Sir What Price Our Constitution? The 1999 House of Lords Act provides that no-one shall be a member of the Upper Chamber by virtue of a hereditary peerage. However, every peerage of the Realm is created by the ancient practice of Letters Patent, issued by the reigning monarch through the crown office under Common Law. No evidence of a revocation of Letters patent exists in the 1999 Act. Given that the Act did not revoke a single Letters patent, the former Labour government acted unlawfuly in preventing a majority of the hereditary peers from retaining their seats in the Lords. Over a decade later,...

Of One Complaint. About A Man Prostituting Himself On The Box

Hi there everyone! Some of you out there might have seen PM Gordon Brown prostituting himself on ITV recently, shedding a tear about his baby daughter, who had died of a brain tumour some years ago. While I accept that losing a child is always a terrible tragedy, I don’t like unelected prime ministers using their personal grief to promote themselves. It was a disgraceful piece of New Labour propaganda, conjured up on prime time television to make viewers feel sorry for Mr Brown. And what was one of the biggest terrestrial commercial TV channels thinking when it gave free airtime to an incompetent buffoon who clings to power at any cost while the country is going down the drain? I tried to complain to ITV, using the email address given on its official website, about the unacceptable practice...

1500 Articles Later: We Present The First Ever Piece Posted On Stirring Trouble

Now that we have amassed a wopping 1,500 articles on our website we decided that it would be a good idea to look back and see what was the first piece that had been posted on our website. Ever. And guess what: it turned out to be a humorous take on politicians. And we present it to you today because it concerns a man who is in the news now, tipped to become the first ever President of the European Union. Tony The Stud. Or Why It Is Always Good To Mock Politicians It has always amazed me how Tony Blair managed to avoid being mocked and ridiculed during his 10 years as Prime Minister. From the moment that ‘straight kind of guy’ got into 10 Downing Street in 1997 he did and said ridiculous things most of the time. Remember his take on Princess Di when she died in a car crash? Tony quickly...

Some Fashion Tips. For Men Over 40. By My Butler George

Today, dear readers of Stirring Trouble Internationally, I would like to give the podium, so to speak, to my butler George, who is a great authority on fashion, having been dating models in his younger days and having been mixing with some designers, for some strange reasons that I have not been told about. George has a good sense of understanding of clothes and often gives sound advice to people, who tend to dress like clowns, lunatics or prostitutes, and then not understand why people around them do not treat them seriously. Today we present to you fourteen fashion tips for mature men, dictated to me by butler George. Although I have to say that some young men might be wise to read these tips carefully and remember them. TipN1: Never-ever wear a dark suit with brown or grey shoes. A dark...
