number 34 with prawn crackers

Filed under: business,just whinging,politics,the bleedin' obvious — anne thrope (miss) @ 1:40 am

and so to china where doubtless for the approval of uk and international audiences, prime minister david cameron raised the twin perennial bugbears, democracy and human rights during his trade visit to beijing, earlier today.

i understand that, consistent with the prc’s stock response whenever these matters are raised, the pm was given no assurances by either the chinese president or premier that any such reforms are under consideration, let alone Hu might take charge, or Wen they might begin.

okay, i know it’s childish, it’s just a bit of fun. πŸ™‚

except for the poor buggers on the shit end of it.

in the interests of yourselves and all of the chinese people; be a mensch. πŸ™‚

my cv – in brief

Filed under: just whinging,politics,sport,the bleedin' obvious — anne thrope (miss) @ 3:20 pm

since i am offended by embroidered or exaggerated resumes i shall keep mine short and factual which i trust the reader will appreciate.

1983: born in the wagon of a travellin show.

i was an unremarkable child. though i’m told i did unnerve the midwife slightly. the story goes that whilst she was preparing to smack my arse i emerged reciting “pi = 3.14159265”.

apparently i similarly irritated my father who when i was just 9 days old, foolishly asked me what i would like for breakfast to which i replied “3.14159265 pies”. he never spoke to me after that.

happily, life took a turn for the better when (more…)

Diane Julie Abbott — candidate

Filed under: just whinging,politics,the bleedin' obvious — anne thrope (miss) @ 11:50 am

so, in an amazing, last minute turn-up, diane abbott makes the list of labour-leadership candidates by the skin of her teeth.

the shy, retiring late-night political pundite having earlier received the backing of stand-in leader harriet harperson garnered more vital votes previously pledged to her only left-leaning opponent when he withdrew from the race.

charmingly, she also received the vote of front-running opponent david miliband, of the well-known duo ‘edband’. condescending? lui? he might as well have stabbed her in the eye with a fork.

of course the chances of an abbott victory are vanishingly small but her presence at the debates over the next three months (god help us) might at least introduce the few remaining blairites to some of the basics of socialism. or not πŸ˜‰

at least she’ll add a touch of much-needed colour (none intended obv) to this otherwise bland line-up of westminster careerists and maybe give us a giggle or two along the way at their expense.

and in the event of her (certain) failure she has at least the comfort of her career as a concert pianist to fall back on.

middle ‘c’ anyone?

financially incontinent fergie

Filed under: just whinging,sap of the month,the bleedin' obvious — anne thrope (miss) @ 2:12 am

hearing sarah ferguson described this evening as ‘financially incontinent’ made me laugh. i couldn’t put it better whilst remaining polite if i tried.

other gems emerging today include suggestions that despite owing £100,000’s to all and sundry on both sides of the atlantic this deluded simpleton retains a staff of twelve!

i hope they make sure to get their no doubt trivial stipends in cash for their own sake.

on a lighter note news attributed to insiders suggests that her state-of-mind is fragile: no shit sherlock!

let’s hope she doesn’t risk further psychological damage by trying to get a handle on what happens to other people who spend money they haven’t got while carelessly lacking the opportunity to hawk access to a minor royal.

pass me a bucket, this one’s overflowing.

brown in the brown stuff again

Filed under: brevity,politics,sap of the year,the bleedin' obvious — anne thrope (miss) @ 7:36 pm

what a sad debacle brown’s campaign visit to rochdale turned into. better still it was all his own work.

boy but he’s a dismal, preaching, boring, self-satisfied arse! on top of that he’s got a face like a robber’s dog.

(oops, sorry if i said anything like that, i forgot i was typing. find me somebody to blame. oh and make a note so i don’t forget to rip her head off later. oops am i still typing? shit! again.)

i can barely wait for tomorrow. why? because if the charmer’s decades-long record for re-announcing stuff if any guide he’ll give us this screw-up over again until his already lousy poll rating goes negative.

go on, pretty boy. give us a smile.

alex ferguson for letting tevez go — dumb

Filed under: sap of the year,sport,the bleedin' obvious — anne thrope (miss) @ 2:05 am

let’s face it, wayne rooney is the best footballer in britain; bar none. he could walk it. but he wouldn’t. see where i’m going here?

although he may not be the ultimate by any single measurement, as a package of skill, commitment, awareness, speed, strength, determination and a sheer willingness to go the extra mile, rooney is peerless.

it goes without saying, therefore that his value to manchester united goes beyond money. a player of his stature is impossible to replace, like-for-like.

so we’re all agreed: rooney’s a genius! but let’s try to remember that he’s also human. so, what do we do when wayne goes lame?

well because players like him don’t grow on trees to go out and find one is tricky to say the least: to say nothing about the cost and difficulty of liberating them from their existing obligations. at short order it’s impossible, not to mention outlawed by the league.

which brings us to the thorny subject of tevez.

if tevez did not want to play for man u, and who wouldn’t, i’ll pass my fags round! and as, effectively, a free agent it would surely have been well within the means, even of the glazer-strapped regime to have retained his invaluable services.

for the benefit of the slow-of-wit (not you surely?) i simply pose the question:-

what are manchester united short of for the remaining five games of the season?

who said carlos tevez? i’m with you!

arsene (i did not see it) wenger

Filed under: just whinging,sport,the bleedin' obvious — anne thrope (miss) @ 2:16 am

following the football authorities’ entirely reasonable response to the blatant cheating of his player eduardo this week, arsene (i did not see it) wenger warns us that the introduction of tv reviews of play would be opening a dangerous door.

where to, froggie. somewhere where you would finally have “to see it” kicking and screaming if necessary?

i refer readers who have the honesty to “see it” to my earlier doggerel on the sickening subject of simulation in football.

they, like me are happy to call it cheating. and no doubt some rather-less polite names.

bonnet de douche mes amies.
