    Yes, brilliant. Your title to this post too!

    Craig, I think you should start a magazine, a la Private Eye. How about ‘Public Eye’ for its name? I’m sure this can be crowd-funded, leveraging your rather popular, this website?

    Sam Cam: “Is it true, David, what they are saying in the papers?”

    Dave: “Well I once was engaged with a pig, but I ended up marrying a horse.”

    So that’s why they call him Porky.

    Cameron: You look like a sexy bit of crackling. How about a BJ, then?
    Pig: Over my dead body…

    Quality exchange on the Wright Stuff earlier:

    Caller: “There’s also the issue of the Prime Minister putting his c*ck in a dead pig’s mouth.”

    Matthew Wright: “Dan, Dan, d’you know what mate? One, it’s an allegation. Two, your choice of language far goes beyond what is permitted at this time of the day and at that point really you’ve forfeited any right to speak on this show, so bye bye!”

    ^ Ha ha ha^

    Wht would Bair’s response be if he were confronted with the same accusation? She’s certainly no Cherry now, is she?

    I wonder if these guys have any regrets?

    Cameron, will now probably go ahead and produce another baby…

    Cameron, will now probably go ahead and produce another baby…

    Not now Sam knows where it’s been.

    “though it is a stark reminder the ruling class are very different to us.”

    Not really. Seems to have been a combination of large amounts of alcohol, possibly some drugs, and your mates egging you on. Could have happened to any of us.

    Have a look at Chunkymark to-day.

    Max and Stacey PigGate.

    Sex with animals is illegal, is it not?

    PMQs should be hilarious.

    Did he put his RT.Hon.Member in the pigs mouth?

    Makes a change form an orange. Or, are we back to the satsuma again?

  • Ba'al Zevul

    If large amounts of alcohol were involved…

    Cameron: Oh. I seem to have lost my…this has never happened to me before, darling…
    Pig: I’ve heard that one before.

    Could have happened to any of us.

    No, it couldn’t. I once went to a dinner like that at Oxford, guest, not a member, before the time of the Piers Gaveston society. Not so extravagant, but those events are really not like others.

    No, it couldn’t happen to any of us, because most of us don’t move in the society of the kind of “mates” who “egg you on” to that kind of thing.

  • Alcyone

    “Could have happened to any of us.”

    No way, Jose!

    Anon, it wasn’t exactly that he was attacked by Piggy.

    It has been a glorious 24 hours on Twitter.

    I love puns and we have had many. My favourites so far: “don’t f*ck a gift pig in the mouth” and “David Cameron – when you get excited, do you get a lardon?”

    We have had posh Tories galore opening telling us that this is normal behaviour for da posh kidz when they are at university, with absolutely NO idea what this communicates to the rest of us.

    BUT, but but but… this is actually a story of a politician resisting corruption by refusing to give a top job to a party financer, right? We have to give the porcine necrophiliac that, at least.

    Despite it all, though, I agree with Craig. It all pales into insignificance in comparison to the attacks on the poor and vulnerable and the evisceration of public services. So tough cookies to the Forehead of Doom, say I. I hope the mockery lasts for a week at least. And I know St Corbyn of Westminster wants polite politics, but if nobody oinks at PMQs, I shall be most disappointed.

    “No, it couldn’t happen to any of us”

    Who. with hand on heart, can honestly claim to be wholly immune to the charms of a dead pig’s head?

  • Karma Chameleon

    There is a God after all, after the unstinting sayanim ensemble’s ludicrous chorus on Jesus Corbyn, the mass hysteria fomented by freedland aaronovitch has actually ended up in Camerons gob. Its definitely divine teflon.

  • Alcyone

    Craig, stick to the knitting, to what you do best: writing!!!!!!!

    Forget that being a politician stuff. You’re much better AND FREER at the sidelines. And probably more influential that way too. Think about it. Strategic inflection point.

    Interesting facts !

    UK general election 2014: Conservatives win 36,9% of the votes.

    Greek general election Sept. 2015: SYRIZA wins 35,5% on the votes.

    Question : if, as has been claimed on here, the Conservative govt is illegitimate because it is governing with a minority of the total votes cast, what do commenters have to say about the legitimacy (or otherwise) of the incoming SYRIZA govt?

    Gotcha! 🙂

  • Alcyone

    Habby, any comparative statistics on voter turnout?

    I know Craig quotes 24% as representing the vote received by the Cons of the whole pool of eligible voters.

  • Ba'al Zevul

    But what is disgusting is the attack on the vulnerable, poor and disadvantaged which he is leading now.

    Is he really leading anything? Or is he just a PR-spouting figurehead for the free-marketeers, one arm twisted firmly up his back by Osborne? Have the Tories, in other words, bought a poke in a pig? (sic)

  • Habbabkuk (scourge of the Original Trolls)

    All the more so because under the Greek system, the party which wins a majority of the popular vote (even if it only wins ONE vote more than the second party) gets a BONUS of 50 parliamentary seats.

    If that system were applicable in the UK, Mr Cameron’s govt would have an unassailable majority and would be able to see off any number of rebels (eg, on the EU).

    I should especially welcome a comment from our Transatlantic Friend on this in due course (when he wakes up) with special reference to the Athenian system of democracy ca. 500 BC.

    “Habby, any comparative statistics on voter turnout?

    Yes indeed, Alcyone.

    The UK turnout was around 67% (if memory serves).

    The Greek turnout was 56,6% (the lowest ever recorded).

    Which kind of reinforces the thrust of my question, n’est-ce pas?

  • Alcyone

    Thanks Habby, yes I see it.

    Surprisinly low turnout in Greece at this juncture. Thanks for your analysis.

  • Karma Chameleon

    My freemason oath does not allow me to go the whole hog and disclose the ritual required upon attaining the 33rd level, its entirely up to Cameron if he so wishes to reveal, but its a lot more Boris than Bullingdon.
