Why Would Anyone Become A Politician, If Not To Get Rich And Enjoy The Perks Of Office?

Ted Obvious writes from Paris: Why would anyone go into politics, if not to get filthy rich, enjoy all those the perks of office, paid for by the taxpayers, and, let’s be honest about it, have no responsibility whatsoever for anything while not really doing all that much? It’s always funny to hear politicians talk about their desire to ‘change things for the better’ and ‘improve the lives of others’. Power, or rather abuse of it at every given opportunity, is obviously never mentioned. Even though the moment they get elected or appointed, politicians start seriously overdoing it with their perks and freebies, basking in the adoration of all sorts of wealthy people, who always want something in return for their hospitality and generosity. The thing is that most people go into politics...

More Pearls Of Wisdom. From The Boys At Stirring Trouble

Today we present more humorous pearls of wisdom and witty observations from the boys at Stirring Trouble. All central bank governors and finance ministers at the time of the financial crash should be sacked, investigated and prosecuted. The West that had illegally invaded Iraq, armed Gaddafi and the Saudis and f..ked up Libya is now worried about the fate of Syria. Hypocrites! Democracy loving regimes of Saudi Arabia, Oman, Bahrain and Sudan are demanding that Syrian President Assad steps down. Slimy bankers pretend it’s capitalism that people are angry at and not them, the greedy thieving bastards. Don’t you just love the way Western governments pretend that Libya is now a wonderful place to live even though it’s a total mess. That sick and twisted bitch who’s bringing up her...

More Pearls Of Wisdom. From The Boys At Stirring Trouble

Today we present more humorous pearls of wisdom and witty observations from the boys at Stirring Trouble. The ease with which countries of the EU are surrendering their sovereignty to Brussels is amazing. Two timing corrupt national politicians should hang for that. The West’s determination to take on foreign dictators usually grows in direct proportion to its economic problems mounting. For the sake of advertising revenues mainstream media continues to shield banks that have ruined whole nations. NATO is pretending that starting peace talks with the Taliban is a great success. It’s actually a sign of defeat. NATO has lost the war. The problem with the American Right attacking President Obama is that they kept an idiot in the White House for 8 years and don’t have any credibility... 

How Come Modelling Is Considered To Be A Proper Job?

How Come Modelling Is Considered To Be A Proper Job?

Ted Obvious writes from London: How is it that modelling is considered a proper job? Please, feel free to explain to me how is it that people, who put on silly looking clothes and parade them in front of easily excitable audiences, are taken seriously as some ‘professionals’? What do you actually need to learn or to know in order to become a model? Apart from mastering that stupid penguin walk and looking in front of you all the time like a zombie, pretending not to notice anyone in the room around you. And how come so many deeply revolting women become supermodels, even though you wouldn’t give them a second look if you pass them by on the street? I find it really weird that modelling has somehow become a highly rated occupation. OK, I can understand some silly cows, living on a council... 

Of Dodgy Opinion Polls. And The Weird Results They Produce

Of Dodgy Opinion Polls. And The Weird Results They Produce

R.F.Wilson writes from London: Have you ever taken part in opinion polls? You know, the ones that are supposed to reveal what the public thinks about their politicians and how they intend to vote in forthcoming elections? I bet you haven’t because I’ve never met a single person in my life who took part in these polls – not one. Let’s face it, you have to be a seriously disturbed individual to devote a good 10 minutes, sharing your views on politicians and on your voting intentions. I’m sorry if I’ve upset some people here, but there’s no way I would accept that they received a phone call from some dodgy sounding company and spent time talking to some creepy sounding researcher about party politics. I once got a call like that and I put the phone down before the fellow... 

Social Media? It’s Been Hijacked By Politicians, Celebs And Mainstream Media

Social Media? It’s Been Hijacked By Politicians, Celebs And Mainstream Media

Ted Obvious writes from London: You might not realise this, but Social Media has been successfully hijacked by politicians, celebs and mainstream media hacks, who in an ideal situation should have been be kept away from it. Hundreds of thousands and even millions of mugs – I have no other word for them – follow these creeps religiously, treating everything they say on their blogs as if it’s some divine wisdom. They don’t even bother to think that what they are doing is helping to turn Social Media into an advertising billboard for self-obsessed publicity junkies and allow hacks to peddle the same sort of rubbish as they do on air or in their respective organs of print. The whole idea behind the social networks was to create an alternative source of information and allow people to comment...

Brave New World Of Adultery. In The Age Of Hi-Tech Communications

Adam Lovejoy writes from Amsterdam:First of all ladies, married or in a committed relationship: if your hubby or partner tells you that he’s going on business to Amsterdam on a Friday or Saturday, rest assured that he is planning a seriously dirty weekend. No one in his right mind does any business in Amsterdam. It’s the sex capital of Europe and people come here to have intercourse with prostitutes and maybe smoke some dope. Nothing else. Anyway, no that this is out of the way, spare a thought for people, who were committing adultery in the days when mobile phones and the Internet were still non-existent and the outdated views on marriage were hampering the desire of some brave men and women to share their love and passion out of wedlock or a committed relationship. It wasn’t...

Pretty Boy Nick Take Note: Political Correctness Is Bad For Business

Adam Lovejoy writes from London: Here’s something for you to chew on: political correctness is bad for business. Yep, that’s how it works in the real world and not in the fantasy land created by the PC brigade and populated nowadays by most modern politicians. If you start hiring people solely on the basis of their race, colour, gender and conformism to popular views and opinions then you’ll have a serious problem on your hands. Take Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg, who has said recently that despite many black footballers playing in the Premiership, not one club has a black manager. The point Mr Clegg was making was that black people were discriminated against in English professional football. What the Deputy PM doesn’t understand is that football is a business and club managers are...

More Pearls Of Wisdom. From The Boys At Stirring Trouble

Today we present more humorous pearls of wisdom and witty observations from the boys at Stirring Trouble. On all sorts of subjects, mostly politics and sex. Treating voters like total idiots by politicians is all the rage these days in liberal democracies. Every leftie dreams to be a rightie. But is afraid of the intellectual challenge. US Defence Secretary Leon Panetta looks like man who has a drinking problem and is not shying away from it. The prize for the funniest impersonation of a religious person should go to Tony Blair. Every time he talks about religion, it’s one stand-up comedy routine. Chicks in torn tights look disgusting. In the past they ‘d rather die than be seen in torn stockings. Now they flaunt it, the stupid c..ts. Dear Western leaders, love the way you’re...

The Seriously Corrupt Party: Tips To Aspiring Politicians

Thomas Mathew writes from London: It’s exactly three and a half years ago that a new political party had been registered in Britain, the Seriously Corrupt Party (SCP). The party has been very effective in spreading its message and getting politicians from across the political divide to become seriously corrupt and abuse their positions. It is thanks to a large extent to the tireless work of the SCP that so many politicians in Britain and beyond have become interested in corruption and got involved in it. It was especially heartening to see, for example, how British MPs demonstrated the most ingenious methods of submitting false expenses claims and fiddling with their home allowances. Bravo, all of you, says the SCP. Keep on with the good work. But the party wants to go even further in...
