hypecult teeshirts

In a surprise move, the Westminster corner shop is now stocking a range of new “honesty” t-shirts created by the politicians themselves. Each Member was given free reign to select a slogan that best represented their public perception in a move to connect with the electorate by being honest for a change. Whilst Harriet Harman opted for the dull “This is what a feminist looks like”, Nick Clegg and David Edward “Ed” Milliband opted to be more direct, as seen in the picture below. For his t-shirt slogan, David Cameron is still trying to decide between “Europhile” or “Etonian”.

Leveson says Words Before Going Down-Under

Leveson

Following the uncovering of criminal behaviour at tabloid newspapers and after months of evidence gathering and analysis, politicians and the British media gathered to eagerly hear the findings and recommendations of Lord Justice Leveson. During a brief press conference, as Leveson had a cab waiting with the meter ticking to whisk him to his Australia-bound flight, the Lord Justice said some words about things and stuff, then disappeared quicker than a case of Bacardi Breezers at Charlotte Church’s breakfast table. Basically, the Lord surmised, some of the press are naughty but most are ok; Ofcom should get a look-in; and there should be some sort of law to keep things on track. Leveson, vaguer than…

BBC Store Confusion in London

BBC Store Confusion in London

Margaret Street in Central London had to be cordoned off yesterday as confused sneakerheads and Japanese tourists gathered around the BBC shop. The disorientated streetwear fans mistook the retail arm of the British Broadcasting Corporation with yet another outpost for the brand by Nigo & Pharrell known as Billionaire Boys Club. Whilst the outside of the store was engulfed in a sea of snapbacks chatting about what the latest “drop” might include, the shop continued to trade as normal as the crowd hadn’t realised they didn’t actually have to queue outside to gain admission. One elderly woman, who visited the store to purchase a BBC t-shirt for her grandson and a box set of ‘Allo…

Andrew Neil Releases Hair Colour Range

Andrew Neil Releases New Hair Colour Range

Famous for his ever-changing hair colour, political journalist and broadcaster Andrew Neil has bowed to non-existent public demand to release a brand new range of home-dye kits in a selection of temporary shades for those keen to vary their colour daily. The driving force of BBC programmes such as The Daily Politics and This Week, Neil is a respected and feared political analyst and commentator whose razor-sharp interrogations have been sidelined somewhat by deciding to change his hair colour more times than Lady Gaga, Rhianna, and Linda Evangelista. Some claim his comedy colourings act as a distraction to soften up his interviewees who don’t take the brillo-haired pundit seriously until it’s too late and Neil…

Chancellor Osbourne Suffering Dizziness

Chancellor Osbourne Suffering Dizziness

The Chancellor of the Exchequer, George Gideon Osbourne, was admitted to hospital earlier today with dizziness attributed to successive policy U-turns. It seems barely a day goes by it when the Chancellor doesn’t backtrack on a previously announced economic policy. Yesterday’s about-face on fuel duty joins the short-lived charity, pasty, and caravan taxes. Osbourne, the finely-wrought creation of actor Daniel Hill from the BBC sitcom Waiting For God, has reportedly spun around so quickly on previously announced tax ideas that the camp Chancellor couldn’t walk in a straight line. Despite the air of not-having-a-fucking-clue, pollsters report that the public prefer “Giddy Gideon” as Chancellor compared to the “muttering idiot” option of Gordon Brown’s eyeballing henchman…

How To Spot A Cunt

How To Spot A Cunt

Some people have the innate gift of being able to weigh someone up with a glance. For those that can’t, here are some tell-tale phrases to know when you’re dealing with a cunt. “Business is business”  Normally said by a work colleague or client, right before they stab you in the back and either fire you, steal your work, or cancel a long-standing contract you were assured was set in stone. “I pay your wages”  Normally spouted at public sector workers such as bus drivers, train guards, nurses, doctors, firemen, and policemen by arseholes whose 2-pence worth of P.A.Y.E. contributions don’t even cover the cost of a uniform. Also occasionally barked at barmen and bouncers…

PM Blasts Comedian Jimmy Carr Again

PM Blasts Comedian Jimmy Carr Again

Despite the fact that it’s perfectly legal, the British Prime Minister David Cameron has again blasted the wisecracking comedian Jimmy Carr as “morally wrong” for smoking. Even though Carr has not broken any laws to purchase legally available cigarettes, Cameron has singled out the comedian to make an example of him to deter others from starting to smoke. Whilst the government has made attempts to reduce the amount of smokers, they have not taken steps to fully outlaw tobacco products which supporters of Carr’s have been quick to point out. “He hasn’t broken any law so get off his case Cameron” said a source close to the comedian. “Until it’s illegal, he should be able…

Offline Twitter Flashmob Hits London

Offline Twitter Flashmob Hits London

Tomorrow Twitter will leap from the digital realm to the real world in a Flashmob gathering taking place on Trafalgar Square at 3pm. Prolific tweeters will be handed a Twitter-branded megaphone with which to share their thoughts and observations. Rumoured participants include Charlie Brooker, Grace Dent, Emma Kennedy, and Keith Chegwin. Members of the public are welcome to join the shout-fest provided they bring their own loudhailers and only yell comments that are 140 characters or less. The Flashmob aims to discover whether anyone actually pays attention to other Twitter users or if people are to be busy farting out their own thoughts to even bother.

Woodland Ban for Lookbooks

Woodland Ban for Lookbooks

A ban preventing the use of woodland as a backdrop for mens and street wear lookbooks comes in at midnight tonight. Several fashion bodies have reached the consensus that an official stop has to be put to the lazy practice of sticking a guy with a backpack in a forest as brands don’t seem to be moving on of their own accord and seem stuck creatively. “What’s going on?” asked one creative director. “Why does every lookbook have to look like The Fucking Blair Witch Project or Deliverance?”
