I just spotted that my profile still describes me as, among other things, as Clinton loathing. I wonder, is it time to move on. Old Billy is now out of politics allowing to spend all his time raking in the cash a la Blair, groping interns or whatever turns him on the most. That would be a hard call I suspect. Surely I should move on to loathing Obama for his economic recklessness, love of the Big State and of illegal wars and crushing basic principles of civil liberty?
Hmmmm. I thought about this for a few seconds. Clinton covers not just old Bill but his loathsome Mrs as well and she spouts more than her fair share of total hogwash on issues like women’s rights and global warming (oops I meant climate change). She is even more into involving the US in illegal, unafordable and in the end disastrous Middle East military ventures than her old man and I have not heard her speak up much about the Big Brother tendencies of the Obama regime.
And Old Bill still pops up now and again to rouse the faithful to go vote for folks who love trees more than unborn kids, argue that every welfare programme is a way to create jobs and who think that Big Government is the solution not the problem.
I rather hope that after his second term ends in shambles Obama will head off into the sunset. I rather fear that the Clinton’s will be around for a while to come.
No need to change my profile then.

It is not just the UK foreign aid budget that is a joke. Under the auspices of the vile Clinton woman US foreign aid spending clearly also out of control. One of the war criminal Blair’s charities picked up £550,000 in 2011 but in 2012 it was the Wicked Witch herself who trousered it big time picking up a donation of £405,000 from the grateful US taxpayer for one of her charities.
Accounts for the year to Oct 31 2012 show that the Cherie Blair Foundation for Women enjoyed an income of £1.8million, and almost doubled its staff in 12 months, from six to 11.
The charity has cash in the bank of almost £1.5 million. Its wage bill rose from just over £258,000 in 2011 to £437,000 in 2012. But bear in mind that staff numbers rose during 2012 and thus the total wage bill is now likely to be running at an annualised rate of at last £500,000. Chuck in employers NI and we are heading towards £575,000. The firm uses Farrar’s (the most expensive law firm in London) to do its legal work and it has luxury offices overlooking Hyde Park. How much is spent on marketing? How much on other admin expenses?
The Wicked Witch boasts that it is helping women entrepreneurs out in Africa. Sure. But I wonder what percentage of every £1 the US taxpayer and other mugs send in how much actually goes to help female entrepreneurs out in bongo bongo land? 50%? I doubt it.

For some reason I get called a sexist beast by some folks. And it is not just the odd bird who seems to think this. As such I am delighted to publish a guest post by a woman. This is not affirmative action. Just because the post makes a good point or two although I am not sure why she hails the vile Clinton woman as a role model – try Ann Coulter instead.
The poster is Charlotte Argyle who is from City Future an organisation for young professional Conservatives in the City. For some reason Charlotte thinks that I am not too old to attend an event or two…flattery will get you everywhere but I am not too sure that my views on Call Me Dave would go down that well. Charlotte writes:
100 years ago, Emily Davison threw herself in front of the King’s horse during the Epsom Derby as a suffragette protest. In 1918 the wheels of female equality turned, but the Representation of the People Act was just the beginning of the story. Over the last 100 yrs there have been numerous figures that women could covet when looking for a role model. Some of my personal favourites include Aung San Suu Kyi, Margaret Thatcher, Hillary Clinton and Alek Wek. However the most obvious error in the above statement is the omission of the male of the species: somehow in the quest for female equality the see-saw of opinion has tilted, and now, it is almost an insult to the cause for females to seek afflatus from our XY friends.

How long ago was it that we were reading in the liberal media about nice young Egyptians urging President Mubarak to quit via facebook and twitter? Gushingly the BBC poured its love on these nice young people who would take Egypt into a new age of liberal democracy. And the western powers (led by that idiot Hilary Clinton, but with the full support of our own idiots , Hague, Cameron, Milliband and the dwarves who run the Evil Empire in Brussels) told Mubarak to step aside. Some of us predicted what would happen next and lo it came to pass. It has not taken long.
