We hate all political parties and politicians equally aboard our good vessel, so imagine our delight at the footage above as one of the biggest, most inept leaders to ever grace the political stage in Scotland served us up a healthy slice of schadenfreude.
In a scene straight out of political satire series The Thick Of It Scottish Labour Leader and Quagmire look-alike Iain Gray bolted from Glasgow’s Central Station on foot this week from protesters angry about the possibility of job cuts. After a short chase through the city’s Union Street Gray took refuge in a nearby Subway sandwich outlet where he quickly became trapped.
Gray and his entourage were to stage a ‘meet the people‘ event, in the run up to the Scottish parliamentary elections on May 5th, at Central Station but a handful of protesters showed up to challenge the leader who decided that the best course of action would be to sidle slowly to one side before legging it. The man who famously ‘walked the killing fields of Cambodia, single handedly stormed the Libyan embassy in London in 84’ armed only with an industrial stapler and led the invasion of Iraq shirtless and on horseback, quickly found himself trapped in a sandwich shop which had no back door.
We can only imagine the ear roasting this tit had to take from Malcolm Tucker back at pary HQ.
Giggity and indeed giggity.
The wonderful folks over at peop1e.org, (a simple four person organisation working towards bringing people together as one), had the fortitude to splice Charlie Chaplin’s goosebumber of a speech from his understated masterpiece The Great Dictator, with a collection of recent footage and disturbing images from the Middle East, which we’ve all been watching from the safety of our own living rooms.
If this video doesn’t trigger any kind of emotion then you’re probably related to Gaddafi.

Comedian Louis CK recently appeared on the Opie and Anthony radio show in America as a guest and stayed in the studio while they interviewed
former US Secretary of Defence Donald Rumsfeld.
The republican politician, multi-millionaire and
lying son-of-a-bitch close friend of George W Bush phoned into the show to promote his memoir and to generally plug the shit out of it in the vain hope that some people would buy it so he could make even more money. But Louis CK quickly denied Rumsfeld any chance of a sensible interview by expertly hijacking and sabotaging the entire affair by continuing to ask the man whether or not he was a Mexican baby eating space lizard.
As you will notice Rumsfeld neither confirms or denies the allegation. (*adjusts tin foil hat on head*)
But you agree that I'm right now. Don't you?
Here’s the first of what could be a deluge of parody videos relating to the whole News Of The World phone hacking scandal currently playing out on the news. Brilliant.
No wonder Britain is spiralling out of control when those holding the reigns of power insist on wearing novelty ties to work. Drop your trousers and let’s see what your fucking underpants do?
Hopefully a lovely tuba rendition of the William Tell overture. (*excitedly claps hands together in anticipation*)
