Conrad Black?

This is him?

Be warned he is a Trumpite -
his view of Farage -
Nigel Farage (the ablest party leader in the UK since Margaret Thatcher)

Make you wonder if the there is just one human race or whether all the various strands that made up being human still exist, really ( Neanderthal, Cro Magnon etc)

+1 to that John.

Actually I think I meant, *good* than mc can not help BoJo to keep his private life private, we know so much about him :wink:


"Fan" is short for "fanatic" - an apt description of the follower of "a band" populated by hip-gyrating fellows often harbouring the associated intents for some of their fans, who will remain willing no matter what degradations ensue!

Now, I am hoping you are not really "a fan" but just someone who enjoys Who ditties. (I know I do - "Who's Next" being a collection of ditties I have played many times, just to excite myself). In all events, consider my lightly altered Who-ditty-words a compliment to their ditty-writing. Does that make you feel better now? :-)

WHO are you?
Who,who,who,who

I woke up in Soho doorway,
a policeman knew my name........

I feel like a dyin' clown
With streak of Rin tin tin...

Tell me who are you?
Who the f....

Is this my real wife?
Is this philandery?
Ahead by a landslide
No escape for society
Open your eyes
Look up all the lies and see:
I'm just a rich boy, no need for democracy
It’s an easy win, for old Bo Jo
A little high, on a little blow
Anyway the country goes, doesn't really matter to me, to me.

Theresa, I just hatched a plan
Got endorsed by Lizzy Truss
For that lie upon the bus.
Theresa, Brexit can be won!
Just need to go and throw the Scots away!
Theresa, oh oh
Didn't mean to make you cry
If I'm not PM this time tomorrow
Carry on, carry on, as if nothing really matters...

MASTER BATE!
My time has come!
Sends shivers down my spine...
BUGGER! Now I’ve gone and spilt my wine!
Carrie! Get off my laptop please
I’m duffing up my phallus, spaffing over Tory sleaze!

Goodbye Nazanin, I've got to go
Gotta leave you in Tehran, forget the truth!
Nazanin, oh oh (anyway the country goes)
I can’t help but lie
You must wish I'd never been born at all!

(Guitar solo)

I see a little watermelon of a smile:
Piccaninny! Piccaninny! Would you fetch an espresso?
Tory voters whitening, very very frightening!
Portillo! Bordello! Minstrel show! Albino! Eskimo! Magnifi-Go-o-o-o-ve!

I'm just a rich boy and nobody loves me!

“He's just a rich boy from a rich family
Spare us from his Honey Monstrosity!”

“Easy come, easy go, will you let me vote?”

“G Miller, no! He will not let you vote!”
“Let her vote!”
“G Miller, he will not let you vote!”
“Let her vote!”
“G Miller, he will not let you vote!”
“Let her vote!”
(Will not let her vote) “Let her vote!” (never, never let her vote) “Let her vote!” (never let her vote)
“Oh oh no, no, no, no, no, no, no!”
“Oh Gina Miller, Gina Miller, Gina Miller let us vote!”
Beelzebub has a medal put aside for me!
For meee!
For MEEEEEEEEEE!

So you think you can stop me and spit in my eye?
Though you loved me on #HIGNY?
Oh baby can't do this to me baby
Just gotta get out, just gotta get Hunt outta here!
Oh oh oh yeah, oh oh yeah...

Nothing really matters
Anyone can see
Nothing really matters
Nothing really matters but ME!!!

(Anyway the country goes...)


Crap song anyway. You've merely improved it.

'You think we look pretty good together,
You think my shoes are made of leather'

Got that going round and round in my head, where does it come from and more importantly, what does it mean, signify, hint at?

Hoping from a comprehensive explanation from Cugel, whoever he is :wink:

Substitute by The Who.

But I'm a substitute for another guy
I look pretty tall but my heels are high
The simple things you see are all complicated
I look pretty young, but I'm just back-dated, yeah
Substitute your lies for fact
I can see right through your plastic mac
I look all white, but my dad was black
My fine-looking suit is really made out of sack
I was born with a plastic spoon in my mouth
The north side of my town faced east, and the east was facing south
And now you dare to look me in the eye
Those crocodile tears are what you cry
It's a genuine problem, you won't try
To work it out at all you just pass it by, pass it by

What does the bit about the north side of town facing east mean? I am trying to think of a town matching that description :wink:

No, I am Jacob Ream-Smacker. Well, one of the mental churns making up my personality is such. It's the one that bores you just before applying a light tap o' the cyberhand to get your attention again. I wonder if I've still got yours? :-)

With 160,000 Tories voting between a choice of two weevils, it will be very interesting to learn:

How many don't vote (?)
How many ballot papers end up spoilt (?)


It doesn't really many which of the two complete duffers gets the PM job, it won't end well regardless :|

I'm sure I heard on the radio that the next Prime Minister is to be elected, effectively, by 0.26 per cent of the population, and from what you've written, that might even be an optimistic estimate.
