Carefully constructed reasoning.

Just in case I have been equivocal about the state visit of president Obama, let me try to add some clarity.
State visit. Bollocks.
Official reception. Bollocks.
Hands across the sea. Bollocks.
Oldest allies. Bollocks.
Black tie dress code. Bollocks.
Star studded dinner. Bollocks.
7.823 squillion pounds security budget. Bollocks.
Endless patronising platitudes. Bollocks.
Special relationship. Bollocks.
Royal family. Bollocks.
Land of opportunity. Bollocks.
Working towards world peace. Bollocks.

I thought it was white tie. Also bollocks, but a different shade of scrote.

Miss Scarlet said...

Tsk. No, no, no... it's no longer a special relationship, it is now an essential relationship. The BBC spent 20 minutes explaining this, were you not paying attention?

Tim. They had both. Two bollocks.
Miss S. BBC? Bollocks.

That you got to put up with him instead of us: Not so much bollocks.

That I can't get this openid to work properly: double bollocks and a pox

This all distracts from the real story of the day, according to the BBC website:

"NSPCC findings suggest at least 64 children sexually abused in England and Wales every day"

I would have thought that the NSPCC or the BBC would have intervened to stop this instead of merely reporting it.

If those 64 are still being abused tomorrow, they should definitely be taken into care or perhaps swapped with a different 64.

it's very sexist around here at the moment. . . all this talk of men's genetalia

on a fashion note, did you see how much bigger Camilla's tiara was than Her Madge's? that was what shocked me

Miss Scarlet said...

I thought it was only me that spotted Cam's tiarra! I was much impressed... apparently you can get them for a tenner in Primark.

FFE. You can have him back.
Bob. I am not sure whether the version I heard, "one child is being abused every twenty minutes" is better or worse than yours. Thank you for proving that we have wide boundaries with regard to subject matter that we can trivialise.
EI & MS - is "tiara" some frightful euphemism?

If I'd known it was going to be so sweaty around here, I'd never have come.

Dave and Obama cooking a castrated male bovine animal on the bbq: bullocks.

Obama giving the Queen another iPod, this time loaded with Tina Turner tunes: Annie Mae bullock

I'm going with the Irish variation ...

Bollix!

I really don't know what you want, Vicus. You bring to mind:

It was Christmas Day in the harem:
The eunuchs were standing round
And hundreds of beautiful women
Lay stretched out on the ground,
When in strode the big bold Sultan And glanced round his marbled halls:
He said 'What do you want for Christmas, boys?'
And the eunuchs answered 'Tidings of comfort and joy, comfort and joy, O tidings of comfort and joy.'

Bollocks.

Hehe. You said "Bollocks!'
