|At 54 Clarkson is showing the |
effects of living close to Eton Boy.
In the normal way I really wouldn't give a damn. After all I don't watch tv, and if I did I doubt if I'd watch him. As I don't pay a tv licence, I can also be relatively ambivalent about his reportedly keeping a helicopter (paid for by the BBC) on standby for three hours, while he sat in the pub and did what he does well... got plastered.
What kinda bothers me though, is that, by all accounts, he turned up at work drunk, insulted and assaulted a colleague leaving him in a state where he required medical treatment, and that our unlovely prime minister, Eton Boy, decided that that was Ok because he thought Clarkson immensely talented, and his (Cameron's) daughters liked him.
I'm mindful of the fact that most people turning up very late and drunk in a work situation, and putting a colleague in hospital, would be at the tender mercy of Mr Duncan Smith and his odious assistant, McVile, the very next day, in between getting himself along to the local nick and answering a few of Plods's questions.
Is it not dangerous to set precedents like this?
|It will stick like that if the wind changes...|
Oh, it already did?
Well, I suppose he reckons that Humza is only a jock, so it's no big deal.
Well, it's a mistake, Nigel. This is pretty much the first time that all the leaders of the Scottish parties have been of one voice on any subject.
Weird though, that Mrs Curran, who cheered his election with such glee, should now refuse to share a platform with him in London. Bandwagon jump?
By the way, do either Curran or Coburn ever come anywhere near Scotland?
|Move back a bit Tone. |
It'll look better if you get a bit closer to the smoke.
Oooops, maybe not that close.
Too late. Oh well, bye then.
Anyway, he, Blair the Warmonger, was supposed to be some sort of peace envoy to the Middle East, which would have been funny if it hadn't involved so much misery for so many people adn he'd not spent most of the time he was supposed to be doing it making more and more money from advising tin pot dictators, whom presumably he had met whilst being HM's prime minister. I don't know what he got paid for not doing the job. I imagine it was a vast amount, but he seems to have achieved absolutely nothing.
It is being made out that he resigned, but it sounds very much like someone tumbled to the fact that he was useless and sacked him. Doubtless, knowing Blair, his compensation package will be more that I've ever earned or will ever earn if I live to be 1000.
I wish him no joy of it.
I wish I could be bothered to write something interesting about Grant Shapps, or whatever his name is. But he's the Tory Party Chairman and, as such a complete nonentity in my country, so I think that I'll just summarise it thus.
He has sworn for years now that he gave up his other job of web page designer and marketer when he went into parliament. Indeed he has given interviews stating this categorically. He even went so far as to threaten a constituent with legal action for stating it on Facebook.
Trouble is, he's been lying, or as he calls it "overstating".
Jeez, why is it that people like him don't ever "lie" like the rest of us do. They invariably "over state" or "misspeak".
Anyway, whatever happens to him now is of no interest. I would imagine if his boss thinks it's OK to get pissed at work and bop a bloke so hard you put him in hospital that a wee bit of misspeaking is of little consequence, so I expect the Rt Honourable (don't they make you laugh?) Grant Green, or Michael Shapps or whatever, will be safe this time next week.
