Just what the fuck is it with theses idiotic, out of touch Politicians and their ‘just who are you trying to fucking kid’ photos.
Yesterday we had Gideon Bean trying to kid us that he is one of us by scoffing burger and chips on the go… Turns out it was posh nosh.
My friend Dale Martin has more to say on this matter immediately following this foreword.
Today, we have fat guts Eric Pickles trying to kid us that her eats salad… As if!
Fair enough, Branston Pickles says that he posted the photo on Twitter as a sly dig at Osborne.
That may be so, but I know for a fact – via one of my readers – what a fat useless cunt Branston is, so to me, the photo only goes to show that he is a fat useless cunt trying to score points and boost his own profile at the expense of his moronic colleague.
These fucking idiots make me fucking die. Not one of them does anything without an ulterior motive… Keep it up lads. It won’t last forever.
People like George Osborne would be hilarious if they were starring in some sitcom about posh detached from reality wankers, but they are not are they, they are determining the lives of millions of people they have not got the first understanding of the real lives of.
He sits there on his arse for a PR photograph thinking that the nation would somehow connect with his £6.75 burger and fries that he had one of his lackey`s go fetch for him, without the faintest inkling of just how insulting it is to expect everyone to fall for that guff.
Meanwhile while he plays his puerile and pathetic little PR stunt, in many homes in Great Britain sit disabled people who having recently encountered the mercenary charms of ATOS are now declared shirkers, reduced to existing on £71 per week of which the cost of his little snack represents 9.51% of the entire amount they have to live on per week and more to the point, should they not physically be able enough to go fetch it themselves, even if they could afford to waste that amount of money out of what they have to live on, they have no home help like he does to do it anyway.
This stunt to me epitomizes the the whole ethos of British politics, a shallow pathetic PR game presented to entertain what has definitely become a shallow and pathetic society we live in. People should be outraged at stunts like this, it shows contempt, it displays his absolute belief that we are all as thick as a post and able to be manipulated with ease…………….. The problem is that society has been dumbed down to such an extent that in many cases he is actually right, there are indeed those gullible enough to conclude that his burger and fries makes him a man of the people lol.

He is renowned as being one of Britain’s larger politicians.
So when Eric Pickles decided to make fun of his Cabinet colleague George Osborne by tweeting a picture of himself eating a salad, it was too much for many Twitter users to take.
Photo-shopped images emerged on the social networking site today, with a large KFC meal and a stuffed pig’s head added to the Communities Secretary’s desk.
Even his one-time adversary John Prescott joined in the fun by re-tweeting one of the pictures, adding ‘LOL!’.
Other Twitter users also joined in by making fun of Mr Pickles.
Alan McElligott said: ‘Eric Pickles & salad – a very rare combination indeed.’
Another user tweeted: ‘Nothing was as impressive as Eric Pickles managing to photoshop a salad onto his lunch table.’
Another added: ‘Eric Pickles eating a salad now *that* is news.’
Mr Pickles decided to tease the under-fire chancellor, who has been criticised for posting an ill-judged picture of himself eating a late-night gourmet burger and chips meal.
In a photo carefully staged to mimic the chancellor’s, Mr Pickles replaced the burger and fries on the Chancellor’s desk with a bowl of salad and a packet of carrot sticks at his own – and joked that he too was pictured ‘putting finishing touches’ to a big speech.
Having fun: These Twitter users took great delight in mocking Mr Pickles
Mr Pickles’ picture was a public revenge on Mr Osborne after the chancellor made jibes about his weight.
The portly Communities Secretary was dubbed a ‘model of lean government’ by his Tory colleague yesterday for agreeing big cuts to his budget .
Mr Osborne – who has been dogged by controversy over his own post – tweeted back: ‘Nice one, Eric.’
The humorous exchanges came after Mr Osborne was forced to spend parts of interviews about yesterday’s spending review, which imposed another £11.5 billion of spending cuts, defending his choice of meal.
He posted a picture of himself at his desk with the food, along with cans of Diet Coke and a coffee, at around 10pm on Tuesday with the message: ‘Putting final touches to the speech’ in a bid to show another side of political life to voters.
But he was accused by The Sun newspaper of undermining an effort to appear a ‘man of the people’ when it emerged the meal came from upmarket burger chain Byron.
And his explanation that ‘McDonald’s doesn’t deliver. I was working late in the office’ was rather undermined when it was confirmed that Byron does not deliver either and the meal was in fact collected by staff for him and team members from Waterloo station.
A ‘Classic’ Byron 6oz hamburger with lettuce, tomato, red onion and mayonnaise costs £6.75, with fries an extra £2.95. If cheese is added, the price of the burger rises to £7.95.
Mr Osborne ordered the meal from a Byron branch in Waterloo, more than a mile away from Whitehall, with 10 McDonald’s outlets – where burgers start at 99p – closer, the Sun reported.
‘The point about Twitter is to try and tell people more about what you’re doing every day, and there I am working late on my speech, and I’ve got a takeaway hamburger, but it puts you on the front page of The Sun. It’s an occupational hazard,’ Mr Osborne said.
Downing Street noted that the Chancellor was ‘relatively new to Twitter’ and declined to say whether Prime Minister David Cameron shared his taste for the up-market fast-food.
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg said that he had tried one of the ‘fancy’ burgers with his children.
Gordon Brown had different tastes from his Tory successor when it came to late-night sustenance ahead of big set-piece occasions, his former spin doctor, Damian McBride, revealed.
‘For what it’s worth, Gordon Brown’s standard “finishing touches” evening meal was a Tesco’s microwave lasagne. And a Kit Kat,’ he posted on Twitter.
