    “in tatters… laughing stock… downfall… debacle”. I’m no Monckton fan, but I found this article too tendentious to take seriously.

    I think good stuff! I don’t support him, I don’t like him, and I thought his stunt spoke volumes. It was repugnant to me! How gross! It leads to the saying, ‘give them enough rope, and they’ll hang themselves’? He did! He’s entitled to freedom of speech, but he has to accept the ramifications of racism – particularly when it’s as gross as what he engaged in! Good riddance I say.

    LMFAO!!!! Monckton forgot Basil Fawlty’s advice when dealing with Germans: “Don’t mention the war!”

    What did Monckton actually “advise” Thatcher on?
    And wasn’t she one of the first world leaders to twig to “climate change”?

    I think Lord Monkey suffers from Prince Philip’s tongue. Can’t resist saying things and hasn’t got the brains to understand the ramifications.

    Are his speeches at Notre Dame and to the miners online anywhere?

    Do I detect some Schadenfreude?

    Sense – fine German word there! 🙂

    He’s not a Lord, please stop referring to him as such.

    @PAUL – Oh really? Where did I get that from then? Or do you mean the biblical ‘connection’? He’s not a very nice person full stop! Fancy Gina whatsername paying for his visit? That’ll reduce her billions a tiny bit? Funny how they’re screaming poor over the tax, but have millions to spend on their propaganda bs?

    @DELERIOUS – He had enough time to prepare his ‘prop’? That revolting flag! Gee, the sight of that still makes my skin crawl. Interesting isn’t it? I watched the tail end of ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’ the other night, and was glad I hadn’t watched it all. I find Hitler ‘movies’ too distressing! I know the ‘plot’ I don’t have to keep on being reminded. I cried for those little boys though!
