The POSH Blog



It all started two years ago when I bought that copy of 'The Tatler' to get the free sunglasses. I blogged about it and overnight I became 'The Posh blog'.

They come round here looking for 'sexy pics of Emma Parker - Bowles', ‘Selina (Slinky) Tollemache naked’, ‘Tesco leather opera gloves’(?) and ‘posh hyphenated names’

The favourite is the ‘Lamborghini Gallardo Spyder’.


This weekend Ian Jack suggested that we may have to get used to it as Londoners could be soon be governed and guided by two old Etonians.


Boris and Dave are good mates who went on from Eton to Oxford where they were both members of the Bullingdon Club ( nos 2 and 8 in the top picture).

To be a member of this exclusive society for young gents you need to be obscenely and filthily rich.

According to the Daily Torygraph ‘The Bullingdon modus operandi is to book a restaurant under a false name, smash it up, and throw large amounts of money at the upset owners’.

Ho Ho Ho - What Larks!

So, if his dreadful prediction comes to pass Ian advises us to go and live in Scotland - which he calls the Canada of Great Britain.

Ow gawd...I hope the latest opinion polls are right and Ken is going to edge it.

Could even the Bullingdon boys afford to pay for the damage if Boris f*c£ed London up (as he invariably would)?

The Standard says Boris is storming ahead. They would.

He said he first decided to run for Mayor when he almost got killed by one of Ken's bendy buses. Nothing to do with the fact that he rides his bike like a wildman. I've nearly been run over by him twice on Whitehall.

Tally ho, Boris! I'm off to Inverness!

I may be mere working class bourgeoisie, but I miss 'posh people'.

The genuine old money brand that is, who had manners and class in the truest sense of the word and wore the same cords and patched jacket for at least 40 years.

It is only the vulgar 'new money'lot that stoops to trying to lord it over lesser mortals with flashy possessions or superiority complexes, owing to the insecurity of knowing that they're not really the real deal.

Having said that I wouldn't be too quick to call the Pest Control Operative if a Spyder appeared at my home!

As I am a "dull" and "intolerably polite" Canadian, I am not leaving a comment as it will go unnoticed anyway.

Oh and it's pouring rain here ("bleak weather") and will continue as such throughout the day and night.

Who are the rest of the retards in the photo?

They look a tad prissy

Scotland...Britannia's Sombrero

Somehow, I don't think that the Scottish population would be too keen on an influx of English taking their jobs, land, homes etc after they've been buggered about by the English for the past however many hundreds of years!

Maybe we should all head for the Isle Of Man. Cold, bracing winds, austerity - just the sort of things those of us who are socialists appreciate!

Ian Jacks is right about the Old Etonian politicians though. David Cameron passing himself off as a "regular kinda family guy" too. Grrr.

NiC:
Just don't mention the Olympics.

Geoff:
You are so cosmopoliton - swanning around in Whitehall eh?
It's almost worth letting Boris knock you down for the headlines - 'Rich Tory yobbo mows down honest working chap in his lunch hour'.

Laura:
Ah .. you mean the unbelievably rich eccentrics who spend all their money on vintage champagne.
That Spyder really looks like a pest - can you imagine anything more tasteless or flashy?
Whatever happened to the Bentley?

mj:
Yes we get a bit fed up with your dullness and politeness.
Can you post something a bit provocative one day please...like a footballer's tackle.

Pete:
Most of them are now Conservative MPs or bankers (or something that rhymes with that).
Prissy - good word - are you sure you aren't really English?

Rimshot:
Sombrero -comes from the word shade.
Scotland shelters us from the rain and the snow.

Betty:
Exactly - and it's not as though we could do their building and plumbing like the Poles.

I'll nip over to the Isle of Man on a day trip and suss it out for you

Remember Dave loves the Smiths and wears Converse trainers. Grrr.

I feel my mentality is definately more English than anything else.

Sometimes I think I was born in the wrong (no smart arse comments MJ) country but thank you KAZ I take that as a huuuge compliment.

Love the car though.

No way can Boris win (doesn't seem to know what he is talking about half the time).

Actually, saying that, no way can Ken and the other guy (whatever his name is can win either).

In which case, you're right. Boris could win.

8:00 pm

Pete:
You’d love it in Manchester.
I could show you round ‘The Village’.

Eamon:
Ooh - you had me feeling optimistic for a second.
Then you went and spoiled it.

Scotland...Britannia's Tuque?

11:59 pm  
Blogger Malc said...

Can't recommend Scotland highly enough. Being so far away from anywhere that has a Tory MP makes the wind and the rain all worthwhile.
We still have to put up with 'New' Labour and the Lib-Dems though. SNP have got me puzzled - they seem vaguely competant.

1:04 am  
Blogger KAZ said...

Rimshot:
That's more like it - mj informed me about the famous tuque.

Malc:
Manchester is also Tory free.
I wonder if there might be an LNP one day where L stands for Lancashire.

I'm pleased I don't live in London as a choice between Bonking Boris the jabbering toff and Bonking Ken the whiney misogenistic naive newt lover would be a bit depressing.

Where have all the conviction politicians like Macmillan, Robin Cooke and John Smith gone? Oh yes, of course they have.

1:38 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Murph:
Other conviction politicians are Jeffrey Archer and Jonathan Aitken. Perhaps Dave or Boris has a conviction for trashing the restaurants.

Would I be the only gay in the village?

Boris is ACE... I came a big big fan of his from watching him squirm on "Have I Got News For You" I think he'll make a great mayor... for London... Not up here... he would like my flat cap and whippet.

6:12 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Pete:
Ha Ha - no way - this is the gay village so I'd be the only straight (or Fag Hag?).

T/Wom:
He's good on 'Have I got News'.
But Paul Merton or your whippet would do a better job in London.

Blogger I, still, ♥ the views said...

I'm not going to make a comment about Boris or London. . .

but instead, how about a party invite! Thursday, my place?

RSVP


(any help before the day is being gratefully received)

Don't sound too enthusiastic (British sarcasm).

Hoots Mon - but you'll probably be more contento in Italy.
You won't find any corrupt politicians over there!?

Kaz I like your argument but it has a fundamental flaw in that there are as many former public schoolboys in the Labour Cabinet as there are in the Tory Shadow Cabinet.

As a comprehensive kid I think Boris will be a fabulous mayor, and lets face it, the choice at the next General election will be between Maceron and Laughing Boy Broon.

Call Me Dave will get my vote (but then I do live in James "The Fake" Purnell's constituency).

Hello Uncle K.
I bet you found me via Tameside eye.

I doubt whether there are quite so many Filthy rich, old Etonian, Oxford, Bullingdon members in the Labour cabinet.

But, let's face it - these toffs will certainly know what's best for ordinary folk like thee and me :)

There already IS a Canada of Great Britain..it's called Canada. Like MJ I too am a little bit duller than a Yank and hesitant to invade Arabic countries.

Scotland is obviously too densely populated to be whispered in the same breath as Canada..8 people per square mile! Crikey that's like bloody Hong Kong compared to Canada.

You and Vicus seem to really have it in for a certain would be Albino Mayoral candidate...is there something that you're not telling us Kaz? A little love triangle back in College perhaps?

*wrings hands together in anticipation

2:00 pm  
Blogger KAZ said...

Donn:
I see - so I suppose you can't just 'pop' round to mj's for a cup of tea and a dull chat.

Love Triangle?
I couldn't possibly comment until the election's over. If Boris gets in I could sell my story for real money!

5:18 pm  
Blogger MJ said...

Donn and I, being typical Canadians, would bore each other to death.

I've dropped off just imagining it.

mj:
But - however boring the conversation is - I trust you finish off with a rousing rendition of 'God Save the Queen'...with Donn on bagpipes.

7:30 pm

Nothing that exciting, Kaz.

We finish off with Donn spinning a few Dan Hill 45s.

Sorry, I should try and be a little more excited.

That is, if my stiff upper lip will allow it

You sneaked in there.
Our British stiff upper lips all crumbled when Diana died.
We're trying to rebuild them now.

If Scotland is the Canada of the UK does that mean they're 9 months behind in watching Coronation Street?

I didn't vote for Boris today.

I bet they don't watch it at all - just reruns of Taggart.

I never for a moment considered that you would.

Your blog keeps getting better and better! Your older articles are not as good as newer ones you have a lot more creativity and originality now. Keep it up!
And according to this article, I totally agree with your opinion, but only this time! :)

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view

I would appreciate more visual materials, to make your blog more attractive, but your writing style really compensates it. But there is always place for improvement
