Shame On You – You’re A Disgrace

Today is Holocaust Memorial Day.

Yes January 27th is the day when people throughout the world remember the victims of the Nazi Holocaust and of more recent genocides in Cambodia, Darfur, Bosnia, Rwanda, Iraq and Palestine.

Numerous ceremonies to remember the victims of these atrocities have taken place up and down the country including here in South Tyneside where each year the Mayor hosts a ceremony on behalf of the people of the borough to make the occasion.

Apparently today’s guests included a select band of children, members of the public, church goers, a few council officers, a handful of councillors and the usual band of Labour party activists - Mr Monkey is still waiting for details of these scrounging bastards but can confirm that Pat Morris and Jack Brown were seen loitering around the buffet table.

The ceremony itself apparently included several readings, recitals, a prayer, and a few words (via letters) from our local MP’s. There was also a flower laying and candle lighting ceremony.

Mr Monkey can confirm that although today’s ceremony was well attended it seems most councillors, executive directors of the council and business leaders couldn’t be bothered to turn up.

According to a source inside the town hall only 11 councillors out of a possible 54 had the decency to make an appearance, these included: councillors Alex Donaldson, John Anglin, Peter Boyack, Jim Foreman, Ahmed Khan, Jane Branley, Joan Meeks, Tom Piggot, Jimmy Sewell, Ernest Gibson and Alan Kerr.

Notable absences included the Chuckle Brothers, aka Ian and Ed Malcolm, Michael Clare, Bill Brady (Lead Member for Equality and Diversity), Tracy Dixon, Joanne Bell, Audrey McMillan, Linda Waggott, Barry Scorer, John McCabe, Jim Perry and Tom Hanson.

The King of Sleaze Tory Boy David Potts and his two stooges Wood and Millburn, all three Liberal Democrats, the two representatives of the We’ve Finally Made Our Mind Up Party Real Independents councillors Lurch and Red Rum Haram and Elsom plus their new lackey Tom Defty were all conspicuous by their absence.

Apparently the Progressives didn’t bother turning up because they still think its 1986.

Mr Monkey reckons that each and every one of you lazy bastards who couldn’t be bothered to turn up should hang your heads in shame – in the words of the King of Sleaze .. “you’re a disgrace”.

Sock and Awe – Part 2

On Thursday Mr Monkey brought you the Sock and Awe game where bloggers can follow in the footsteps of the Iraqi Journalist who had the balls to throw his shoes at George W Bush.

Judging by the massive response to this post; nearly 2000 page hits in less than 48 hours, Mr Monkey’s reckons you are either a sick lot or you’d liked to have hit the war mongering bastard yourself.

The Iraqi shoe throwing incident has led to ‘A Coalition of Shoe Throwers’. The Germans have now also developed their own version of the game where shoe throwers simply click on the shoe and try and hit Bush as many times as they can in 50 seconds, and there’s even a league table of top scorers.

SOCK AND AWE – Your Chance To Hit George Bush In The Face

Council leader Iain Malcolm known for his love of being in the media spotlight seems to have missed an opportunity of a lifetime .. if only he’d thought of throwing his shoes at US President George W Bush.

Bloggers will remember seeing TV images of an extremely pissed off Iraqi hurling his shoes at Bush during a press conference in Baghdad and who can forget the dumb founded look on Dubya’s face as he ducked to avoid being struck by a pair of size 10′s?

Mr Monkey reckons millions of people across the globe would love to do the same and thanks to Alex Tew - he of the million dollar home page - we can.

Alex has put together a web game called SOCK AND AWE – the object of the game is to hit George W Bush with as many shoes as possible.

At the time of posting, 1.4 million visitors have hit Bush with 27962373 shoes … so what you waiting for?
