Take note, Ed, we don’t give a shit!
you might not be aware it was that lot who uncovered the scandalous phone hacking of thousands of people.
They were very up in arms about it and still shriek incessantly to this day – a bit like girls, really. Or the lads who never got picked for the football team at school.
Privacy, we were so righteously and shrilly reminded, was sacrosanct.
So why they’re giving the time of day to a spy who’s revealing all of America’s secrets – putting the lives of some of his countrymen in serious, deadly jeopardy – is a mystery.
Edward Snowden is about as much of a hero as the other former best mate, the rape charge-avoider Julian Assange. WHAT are you more arsed about? Pretty pictures on banknotes or the fact you haven’t got enough of them in the first place?
Last week, the bug-eyed moron who claims to lead the Labour party thundered to a new all-time high in Entirely Missing The Point.
As a Nato compound in Kabul was rocketed by the Taliban, and hundreds of thousands wearily marched to food banks, “Dick” Ed Miliband jumped on a
bandwagon that no-one else was riding.
His attempt at touching nerves came on the back of the Bank of England announcing that in 2015, the image of Elizabeth Fry – nope, nor me – will be phased off the back of fivers.
In her place will be Winston Churchill – who you might recall as something of a historic British figure.
Dick Ed described this mild change to the way our wonga looks as a “crisis in representation” for women.
Yep. Not a slight, unintended snub. Nor welcome recognition for a man who led a nation to help beat the Nazis. But a “crisis”.
And in that nutshell lies where the real “crisis” exists – in the Houses of Parliament, where the gulf between THEIR hot air and OUR real lives has never been wider.
Which part of Dick Ed’s brain honestly thought that was worth commenting on?
Which cock-headed advisor suggested he grab this one by the coat-tails and run with it?
My missus had watched me splutter with disbelief as I read this nonsense and wondered what had got my hackles up.
When I explained, she said what I imagine most others would say, too. That she couldn’t give a monkey’s what the f***ing paper looks like, just as long as we’ve got enough of it to pay the sodding bills.
In a speech to Women in Advertising and Communications London – nope, got me there again – Dick Ed said: “When Winston Churchill replaces Elizabeth Fry on the £5 note, everyone who will appear on notes issued by the Bank of England will be a man. What kind of signal does that send?”
Allow me to tell you precisely the signal that sends, you idiot. It sends NO signal at all. It’s not meant to. It’s just a f***ing fiver, for God’s sake.
And in case you haven’t noticed, Dick Ed, there is in fact a woman’s face on every single banknote in the entire country. She’s called the Queen. DAVID Cameron says the idea of MPs getting a raise in their basic salaries from an already fancy £66,000 to a whopping £70,000 is “unthinkable”.
His deputy Nick Clegg gravely claimed he wouldn’t take the cash, while Dick Ed came out with his usual convoluted tosh that didn’t actually say “no” to it.
I don’t buy it, either – and it’s safe to say that the pay rise is precisely what will be happen after the general election.
Left, right, centrist – whatever colour rosette they’re wearing, it’s the same sort of c*** underneath.
