Living Marxism Journalist Celebrates ‘King of the Lads” David Cameron sticking his “bits in all sorts of places.”

with 11 comments

Brendan O’Neill does his bit for Oppressed Men Everywhere. 

Calm down, dears. Drunk young men put their bits in all sorts of places. Why? Because they’re drunk and young and men. It’s what they do. I remember a boozed-up night in which a friend of mine put his into the exhaust pipe of a car. On another occasion a friend slapped his schlong on to an electric fence. Much merriment ensued — for us, not him. Was it big and clever? Nope. But then, we weren’t big or clever people — we were young and dumb. It’s genuinely heartening to know the PM was once young and dumb too.

One assumes from this language that Brendan is referring to an alternative universe in which he was brought up in a US high-school and starred in Dumb and Dumber.

All are implying that Dave is a deviant, some strange super-toff, far, far removed from ordinary people who never misbehave.

Well, now they have a potential new hero in Dave, King of the Lads. If only he would fess up to his pig thing (if it’s true) and take ownership of it. In 2015, it often feels like the world is ruled by the unworldly, by over-spun politicians, a moralistic media class, and fun-allergic student bureaucrats. Pig-gate gives me hope — hope that behind Cameron’s too glossy veneer there might just lurk a real man. Maybe even a bloke.

  1. I don’t think I’ve met anyone who really *cares* what Cameron did with what body part to what dead animal. The point here is simply to exploit the story as much as possible in order to ridicule him, and by extension his party, by association with bestial necrophilia. That’s all.

  2. Elsewhere my old lot do not think that Piggy-Gate is something to be amused by. It’s just Spiked being oh-so controversial yet again. As someone posted elsewhere:

    The toffs do not do things by half.
    I’ve heard there’s this old photograph
    With a rich geezer’s nob
    In a dead porker’s gob.
    But the Spikies say: ‘Thou shalt not laugh.’

  7. Everybody involved in politics what liars the Liberals are.

    Where exactly are these Labour defectors they were talking about a short while ago?


    “Tim Farron claimed he was not a “home-wrecker” today as he was pushed to reveal how many Labour MPs were thinking of jumping ship. The new Lib Dem leader has claimed at that least “more than two” have approached him since Labour elected Jeremy Corbyn as leader.

    However Clegg told The Huffington Post this afternoon that he had not spoken to any Labour MPs about defections. “I haven’t had any conversations, no,” he said. And the former deputy prime minister avoided answering when asked if he would encourage them to do so.”

  8. Having actually read (don’t ask) the Mail’s pages and pages of ‘revelations’ O’neill is getting this wrong because it’s way more than #piggate. TL/DR: Cameron is a ‘out of touch’ louche, rich bastard – that’s what Dacre has decided to hammer home. And far more important is the reams on foreign policy.
