Statesman of the Year (WTF?)

Gordon Brown, Prime Mentalist of the United Kingdom (pictured left looking statesmanlike), despite being the most utterly incompetent holder of his office in history, has managed to be named Statesman of the Year by these people. Obviously the presence of Bono will be setting the alarm bells ringing for anyone reading this, but to highlight the stiff competition Gordo faced, I thought I would share the other members of the shortlist:

Gonzo the Great

A small Edam cheese

A Death Watch Beetle.

My understanding is that the early voting favoured the Edam Cheese, but unfortunately due to a misunderstanding about the lunch arrangements Henry Kissinger ate it. Someone then trod on the death watch beetle, and Gonzo the Great was discovered in flagrante with a chicken in the stationery cupboard.

I am sure all patriotic British people will join with me in congratulating the Prime Numbnuts Minister on this singular honour, which will no doubt be of great comfort to him in his enforced retirement at a remote secure hospital in the Highlands.

    “Dunno, I’m always a twat”.

    Bono and Brown – made for each other.

    It makes you want to weep, doesn’t it?

  4. Scrobs says:

    Lils! That’s another reason why you’re slightly under the weather…

    Just cool down eh? ;0)

  5. Scrobs says:

    Killers; we always like your comments; why not become a PLC and then we can all chat…

    Maybe – on second thoughts – you’re better off being ‘Killers’, though, the Thought Police won’t ever find you…

    Prior to this news today I wouldn’t have thought it was possible for me to think Bono an even greater arse than I already did…

    …and yet…

  7. When you look at some of the people who make up this “Foundation” you do wonder just how much of an honour it is to be feted by them.

    I wouldn’t ask any of them for their opinion on world politics, but tax avoidance on a grand scale – yes!
