What Goes Around Comes Around

Post by Irn Bru on Sat Sep 26, 2015 10:04 pm

David Cameron has already voiced his embarrassment over that Bullingdon club photo. Well, some more photos emerged on Sunday, as well as a story about a thing one person claims photographic evidence also exists for, though if it does it remains mercifully shielded from the public eye. Nevertheless, one imagines there has been more embarrassment in the Cameron household these last couple of days, something the nation has delighted in exploiting with a relentless stream of predictable and mostly not very good pig-based jokes on twitter.

As some have pointed out, we all did stupid things when we were younger (though, I would protest, not that stupid), but the real hypocrisy here is that the story comes from a single uncorroborated and uncertain source in a book written by a disgruntled Tory peer and revealed to the world in the pages of a notoriously capricious 'news'paper. Essentially, it is revenge porn, albeit in prosaic and most likely fictional form. It's ironic that Lord Ashcroft's work is being championed by people who would normally contemplate demeaning pig sex themselves before getting behind the words of either a Tory peer or the Daily Mail.


The end bit....

But he won't. There will be no grainy monochrome scaremongering video from Labour about Cameron and pigs. Corbyn's questions to the Prime Minister will continue to focus single-mindedly on Conservative policies. It may not be the first time Cameron has been embarrassed about his student days, but it is perhaps not the last time he will have reason to be grateful that Corbyn is a better man than him.

I take it you're referring to the Jeremy Corbyn who supports the IRA? People who killed British soldiers & members of the public.

Tell me, did you yell and scream when Thatcher supported Pinochet?

Shoosh Sass. You'll startle the herd mentioning the blessed Margaret.

Maggie supported the British Forces, this prat wants to leave us defenceless, and just look at him, he does not inspire confidence as a leader.
