the baggy trousered misanthropist

missives issued from the lair

Dear people who believe there is no hope and can’t find the strength to go on.

The man wearing the red leotard in this photo once told Saddam Hussain that he saluted his “courage, strength, [and] indefatigability. He was implicated in an oil trading scandal and told the US Senate committee investigating the matter that they were “remarkably cavalier with [the] idea of justice.” He is a staunch supporter of the Palestinians in their bid for sovereign statehood and advised former Prime Minister Tony Blair that he should be tried in the Hague for war crimes.

Then, possibly because he believed he hadn’t made enough friends in high places, he appeared on Celebrity Big Brother, put on a leotard and drank milk from Rula Lenska’s hands while pretending to be a cat.

In spite of all of these tabloid baiting titbits, he was last night elected MP of the Bradford West constituency, crushing the Labour incumbent by a 10,100 vote majority.

The message? Never give up. No matter how many powerful enemies you have made and how much of an embarrassment you have proved yourself to be to them, there is always a career opportunity available to you. British politics.

You gotta love it.
