Corbyn ‘insane’ for not invading Iraq, Tony Blair says

From the British satirical site The Daily Mash:

Corbyn insane not to invade Iraq, says Blair


JEREMY Corbyn’s lack of a plan to invade Iraq would spell disaster for Labour, Tony Blair has claimed.

The former prime minister attacked Corbyn’s ‘Alice in Wonderland’ politics, saying Labour would be unable to win future elections without a huge war instigated by right-wing Americans.

Blair said: “He clearly has no plans for an invasion of Iraq, which is an insult to British voters who so wisely put their faith in me, George W. Bush and Jesus.

“He needs to ditch this drivel about taxing the rich and set out his bombing plans. Right now, I don’t know who he wants to bomb, or if he even wants to bomb at all.”

He added: “In politics you’ve got to be realistic. That’s why the next Labour leader needs to re-invade Iraq using these special robot soldiers I’ve drawn and coloured in myself.

“They’re nuclear and have lasers.”

Neonazis planning to come back for more

Wednesday 2nd September 2015

ANTI-FASCISTS in Liverpool are mobilising against a second bid by neonazi group National Action to stage a White Man March in the city.

They plan to humiliate the neonazis as they did on August 15, when 1,000 anti-fascists vastly outnumbered the racists, preventing their march and forcing them to take shelter in the lost luggage room of Lime Street station.

in their second attempt the neonazis will assemble at the pier head on Saturday September 12 at 1pm.

Anti-fascists will be there at noon.

A statement from Merseyside Jewish Representative Council said: “This march does not just affect the Jewish community, it affects all ethnic groups, races and cultures and has no place here in Liverpool or anywhere else in the UK.”

Chukar partridge headbutts Turkish President Erdogan

This is a 14 August 2015 video from Turkey. It shows Turkish President Erdogan at the opening ceremony of a mosque. Part of that ceremony was a cage with pigeons and a chukar partidge inside.

The idea was that Erdogan would set the birds free ceremonially. However, the birds had other ideas.

Most Turkish people don’t really like Erdogan, as the recent elections showed. Polls about the next elections, on 1 November 2015, say so far that even less Turkish people will like Erdogan then. The chukar partridge apparently wanted to show that it did not intend to vote for Erdogan either …

Renegade partridge headbutts Turkish president at mosque opening

By Sam Hayson

17 August 2015

LONDON — Whenever animals are used in shows, speeches, or — as in this case — to mark the inauguration of a mosque, there’s the potential for something to go badly wrong.

This is something Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan discovered Friday, when he attempted to release a group of birds to mark the opening of a new mosque in Rize – and ended up having a head-on collision with a partridge.

Things got off to a shaky start when the birds proved reluctant to take part in the ceremony.

The President tried to use an umbrella for encouragement, but didn’t have much luck.

Suddenly, disaster struck.

The bird proceeded to scramble over Erdogan’s head while photographers captured the moment.

Raising Your Candidate: A Behavioral Guide for Republicans

31 July 2015

In creating this Behavioral Guide for Republicans, my goal is to address a certain rabble-rousing Republican candidate for president whose name rhymes with “rump.” We should be able to talk about the campaign and the issues therein without constantly trumpeting said candidate’s name, right?
