"the UK's burgeoning status as a great, independent maritime trading nation"
Boris Johnson on the announcement of a new Royal Super Yacht to be built last year, now scrubbed (thankfully.)

Last night this c*** appeared on my TV at the COP meeting and claimed to be: 'the foot soldier, the spear carrier' of the fight again climate change. (I've left out all the incoherent aahhhs, uummms, eerrrrrs that come between every word when he babbles.)

Why doesn't somebody take this moron 'out back, brick wall, .50 calibre machine gun.'

I'd be quite happy to do it, although I don't have a .50 calibre machine gun, (or a wall for that matter.) But hey, I can improvise. I have a baseball bat I bought in Beaumont, Texas when I paid off the Mobil Pegasus many years ago. I had a bit of trouble getting that home I can tell you. Apparently large uniformed Texicans with enormous revolvers aren't keen on the idea of taking a baseball bat on a plane as 'hand luggage.' :eek::eek::mad::embarrass:

In early 2002, so not long after 9/11, my then girlfriend (now the current Mrs p) came over from Hungary to move in with me. Her grandmother gave her a set of cuttlery to take with her because she wasn't sure if we had knives and forks in the UK!!! Mrs p put them in her luggage and without thinking put them in her hand luggage.

Obviously this was spotted at customs and she proceeded to spend the night in a cell at the airport whilst the authorities sorted things out. Now I'll grant you she was only 21 at the time and therefore reasonably innocent but still.

I recall her being slightly miffed when I burst out laughing when she told me the story. I also recall wondering if this was really someone I wanted to move in with...

... and so another cabinet minister bites the dust .... :heyhey::eek:

Some may remember a Spectre board meeting from the Bond film 'Thunderball' in which a failed member received some just deserts. Can't help but think the cabinet room in number 10 might draw some inspiration from this, thus saving time and money (even if it is a bit messy.)

:P:P:P

Saw these 2 going very low and close together overhead whilst I was standing in a carpark trying to film them. Thought I was going crazy as my phone camera or video didn't pick them up at all despite me being able to see them clearly! Glad to get back home to see them reported in the local news , so I've not gone nutty and seeing things after all . 😂 (I was so used to being on the RAF/Army flight path back in Stafford , so was used to them zooming overhead almost taking the tree tops off, but seems a rare occurance around here)

Well I never ! Has anyone seen the Aldi Christmas TV ad ? How did they get it past the Advertising Standards Authority ? Basically - at one point in the ad - Kevin the Carrot ‘fires’ off into a snowman to become his nose - but misses the mark and becomes his penis.

The carer told me that, but I wasn't watching and didn't believe him! 🤣🤣🤣

And did the snowman mind ?
I doubt it.

COP meeting on climate change:

Reminds me of the story of the fellow who fell off a very high skyscraper. As he hurtled downward and passed each window, he was heard to say:
"So far, so good."

SPLAT !!
