Gaza Atrocities Revealed

Seems everyone has an opinion about the Gaza conflict and a week after a ceasefire was declared, Mr Monkey is beginning to get a clearer picture about some of the atrocities that were committed against the people of Gaza.

Mr Monkey would like to share this picture with his readers.

Take a look at this slide show by CLICKING HERE – this is what happens when world leaders including our own Prime Minister, Gordon Brown and his Foreign Secretary, David Miliband fail to take decisive action to stop the use of disproportionate force against a largely civilian population trapped in one of the world’s most densely populated areas. 

Mr Monkey makes no apologies for his slide show and reckons that these pictures speak louder than any words.

BUT BE WARNED you may find some of the images disturbing. 


Another Milestone

'Another Milestone'

'Another Milestone'

Mr Monkey’s Blog reached another milestone yesterday when the total number of views passed the 100,000 mark. It’s taken less than 6 months to reach this landmark and Mr Monkey is proud of his achievements.

Whilst other bloggers talk about how popular they are, this chimp has seen off the competition – such as it was – and established Mr Monkey’s Blog as the Premier Blog in South Tyneside.

Mr Monkey reckons there might be one or two people feeling a bit like George W Bush today suffering from HUW Syndrome – hopeless, useless and worthless.


The Week Ahead

The week ahead will go down in history as one of the momentous of our time

It’s the week when: 

George W Bush is consigned to the history books and will be remembered as the worst US President ever
Barack Obama becomes the first African American President of America
Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown saddles future generations with yet more debt
Kaka joins Manchester City and becomes the first £100 million pound footballer
Mr Monkey’s Blog reaches the 100,000 hits milestone in record time
The long awaited list of ‘Monkey Suspects’ is published
Graham Glitter aka Curly has an ape free day and doesn’t post or comment about the borough’s premier blogger Mr Monkey
The Fat Mackem Hobbit admits he’s obssesed with all things ape and that he’ll do anything to feed off Mr Monkey’s success
and David Miliband spends a day in his constituency; watch out for him on Ocean Road.


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.

Give it a go by CLICKING HERE.


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?

'Pay Back'

Congratulations President Barack Obama

Overnight Barack Hussien Obama was elected the 44th president of the United States, opening a new chapter in the country’s history as the first African-American to hold the world’s most important job.

Americans emphatically elected Democrat Senator Barack Obama in a transformational election which will reshape US politics and the US role on the world stage.

Senator Obama, 47, will be inaugurated January 20, 2009, and inherit an economy mired in the worst financial crisis since the 1930s, two wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and a nuclear showdown with Iran.

Television networks projected his victory over Republican John McCain after Senator Obama solidified traditional Democratic states and cut deep into the Republican territory which his rival needed to control to win the White House.

Obama’s win was greeted with euphoria by a vast crowd gathered in his home city of Chicago, as his supporters, screamed, waved American flags as they waited for him to arrive to deliver his victory speech.

New York’s Times Square exploded in joy at a moment of healing for America’s racial scars, a huge crowd gathered outside the White House and the result immediately reverberated around the world.

Democrats also made ground in Congress and will hold an unshakable monopoly in power in Washington after a rare generational and political realignment.

Senator McCain was gracious in defeat, and noted that his election was a moment to cherish for African Americans.

“The American people have spoken, and they have spoken clearly. A little while ago, I had the honor of calling Senator Barack Obama to congratulate him on being elected the next president of the country that we both love,” he said.

“Though we fell short, the failure is mine, not yours,”  he told a crowd of supporters in Phoenix in his home state of Arizona.

President George W. Bush who has steered his country through eight turbulent years by stumbling from one disaster to another also congratulated Senator Obama.

“Mr president-elect, congratulations to you,” White House spokeswoman Dana Perino quoted the president as saying in a phone call to Senator Obama.

“What an awesome night for you, your family and your supporters. Laura and I called to congratulate you and your good bride.”

Senator Obama’s historic inauguration will complete a stunning ascent to the pinnacle of US and global politics from national obscurity just four years ago and close an eight year era of turbulence under controversial president, George W Bush.

Senator Obama is promising to renew bruised ties with US allies and to engage some of the most fierce US foes like Iran and North Korea. He has vowed to tackle climate change and provide health care to all Americans.

His presidency also marks a stunning social shift, with Senator Obama, the son of Kenyan father and white mother from Kansas, the first African American president of a nation still riven by racial divides.

Forty-five years after civil rights icon Martin Luther King laid out his “dream” of racial equality, Senator Obama’s election broke new barriers and may have helped heal the moral wounds left by slavery and the US civil war.

When he launched his campaign on a chilly day in Illinois in February 2007, Senator Obama forged a mantra of change which powered him throughout the longest, most costly US presidential campaign in history.

With a stunning grassroots political movement, powered by massive multi-million dollar fund raising, Senator Obama first beat Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party’s then pre-eminent political machine.

Senator Obama strode towards victory last night by capturing the states of Pennsylvania, the key battleground which Senator McCain needed to win to keep his long-shot hopes of victory alive.

In a sweet moment for Democrats, he also seized the mid-western battleground of Ohio and captured New Mexico and Iowa, two states won by Bush in 2004 to close out McCain’s possible route towards the White House.

He later added Ohio, the decisive state which swept Bush to victory in 2004 and another Republican state, Virginia, which had not voted Democrat since 1964.

He also won Florida, ground zero of the 2000 recount debacle and captured other Republican states including New Mexico and Iowa.

So far he has won 27 states including his home turf of Illinois for 338 electoral votes.

McCain has won 17 but had not broken out of the Republican heartland and the south.

Senator Obama had led national and battleground polls and had capitalized on the fear of Americans pitched into the deep financial crisis, especially as he appeared to be presidential in a string of debates.

McCain had argued that Obama was too inexperienced to be US commander in chief and would pursue “socialist” redistribution policies that would leave the economy mired in recession.

McCain, 72, an Arizona senator, would have been the oldest man ever inaugurated for a first term in the White House.

Tens of millions of people had earlier stood in long lines to cast votes with America locked in a moment of deep crisis, mired in the worst financial meltdown since the 1930s and waging two foreign wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Senator Obama gave early notice of the way the night would unfold by capturing the key northeastern state of Pennsylvania – McCain’s best hope of winning a Democratic state and stopping his rival from claiming the White House.

In the Senate, Democrats wrested control of five Republican seats including in the traditionally Republican state of Virginia, followed by New Hampshire, North Carolina and New Mexico.

Like billions of people across the globe, Mr Monkey feels safer knowing that George W Bush and his war-mongering associates will no longer be able to treat the American military as a private army to fulfil their own agenda.

Congratulations President Barack Hussien Obama!


Monkey Clip

This week’s Monkey Clip is dedicated to all those wannabee politicians who crave attention on the world stage and will do anything to get it, even if it means bending over with a tub of Vaseline up their arse will someone gives them what for!

They’re not beyond selling their principles to the highest bidder, lying, cheating, treating the electorate with contempt, shitting on their colleagues, sleeping with the enemy (or anything else with a hole) and even pretending they care – yes they really do believe their own bullshit!

Mr Monkey reckons Councillors Iain Malcolm and I’ll shag anything, David Potts fit the bill perfectly.

CLICK HERE to see what they really get up to.
