This Week

Two stories catch my eye in the news this week, one as joyous as the other is disturbing.

First, the creepy one. Would you let your child near any head of state who looks like Max Schreck?

Hello, young man, I'm the President.
Do you want to see the fluffy kittens?

Second one: The twat still owes £700,000 in tax. That's the salaries of about 30 soldiers by my reckoning. Must be hard out there in Dubai, eh Jim? Probably can't afford to come back and work then.

Jim: Big Issue, mate?
Chalkie: Take 20p for it?
HM C & E: Nick Nick

5 Vegetable peelings:

I thought I hadn't seen him in Bexley for a long time. Living beyond your means, eh Jim? We all do it. Trouble is, how are we going to afford the new nuke sub without people like you pulling together for the future of the country? An OBE for services to charities? That's not for services to the health and education of your fellow Brits, then? Oh, so you've given enough have you? That's what they all say.

You can take the man out of Kidbrooke but he's still a thieving bastard wherever he lives. I don't know why he can't get the bus and go to Primark like everyone else.

Isn't the Putin thing very strange though? Gary Glitter gets banged up on allegations (he should just for having that creepy goatee anyway) yet Putin gets photographed actually molesting a child and all he gets is questions asked about his "motivation".

I have felt obliged to add another line to the caption. It's old, it's obvious but it's gold.

You ought to see CIS television when Putin rises from his box to address the parliamnet and the legislative president has lashed himself to the podium . . . .

I can't see where 'molesting' comes into it... dubious motives, yes, but not actual molestation. And anyway, doesn't a lot of this depend on the norms of any particular society? I have no idea what the norms in Russia are but maybe they're not quite as alarmist as we are?
