Lembit Opik ftw

Future England Captain (Tom D.), Monday, 29 June 2020 11:03 (one week ago) link

Lembit Opik has all the confidence of a smarter, tougher, generally better person, and never made the mistake of standing for anything, it's amazing that he found it so difficult to fall upwards with the rest of them. Guess his fatal mistake was joining the lib dems instead of the tories.

That Opik photoset is magic.

Klitschko would be cheating but the fact that there's controversy over whether Boyko Borisov is an actual 7th Dan Karate expert or is just pretending to be one brings him within scope, i think.

He said to United States President Barack Obama that he has a 7th dan black belt in karate, but his coach argued this being not true, and claimed that Borisov has never been even a karate competitor, but only an administrator of the team

No Rubberbandits song, no contest

In November 2005, O'Dea was photographed during a media event at the Curragh Camp pointing an automatic pistol at a photographer. The photo appeared on the front page of The Irish Times the following day. O'Dea apologised saying that it was not his intention to glamorise gun crime.


I mean what else would you expect from the TD for Limerick City?

Mr O’Dea, the subject of another of the duo’s songs which portrayed him selling hash to make ends meet after resigning from the Dáil, was rejecting suggestions by callers to RTÉ’s LiveLine yesterday that the song promoted drug use and was extremely vulgar. “I can laugh at myself. I was remorselessly lampooned by them and I didn’t ring you. They portray me selling hash and swearing on my tash that it’s decent hash,” he said.

“If you don’t like it don’t watch it. I don’t support drug usage. I support a group that laughs at that. For heaven’s sake, get a life. If it (Horse Outside) gets to Number 1 for Christmas it will reflect well on Limerick.”

Apparently the dogs were straining at the leash and he was absolutely shitting it and had to ask the troops to keep them at a safe distance during this:

Judging by Google image search, Blair appeared to be kicking or saving a football for virtually his entire tenure.

not entirely true because he also spent a decent chunk of his tenure clutching a guitar iirc

I bet Rory could take out Dan Jarvis and Johnny Mercer in a feit, but he would be using the deadly stick-fighting skills he mastered on his quixotic adventures in Johnny Foreigner-land.
