    Who cares what two white Tory scum are doing,

    really, who cares?

    • BLiP 4.1

      Well, they are the leaders of their respective nations both exposed as participants in massive international tax avoidance. But, really, with this particular little exercise, turning them into objects of mockery is the main interest.

    • The Gormless Fool formerly known as Oleolebiscuitbarrell 4.2

      So much anger, adam. You should address that or it will eat you.

      • adam 4.2.1

    “The funny thing is Dave, that while your defence is that you cannot be blamed for the sins of your father and your supporters are shouting it, back home the Socialists are having such a problem with the Lange period. You see we can sheet almost everything back to them as it is all their fault. And the public are swallowing it…”

  16. Stuart Munro 16

    I see a black door and I want to paint it red,

  21. Irascible 21
