London Bridge is burning down, burning down, burning down...

Monday, August 08, 2011

Ooops, got that wrong. I should have said Tottenham. Oh, and Enfield. And Brixton. And... never mind.

Meanwhile, our great PM is going back to leave a tip: www.telegraph.co.uk/news

, although the BBC obviously have inside information as they tell us he told her to keep the change from a 10 euro note: www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-po

.

Mr Cameron graciously told the woman not to worry, even though he knew she'd made a mistake. A mistake, no less. Not recognising someone and telling them to get their own drink (incidentally, table service attracts an extra charge in Italy) is a mistake? What a ponce! Now, I wonder why an Italian waitress working in the sticks should apologise for not knowing who the bloke is. I mean, most people in the UK wish they'd never seen his face, and quite a few would be pretty happy never to see it again. But I digress.

Mr Cameron, I'm sorry to inform you that you've been mugged. Tipping isn't the norm in Italy, especially so when you're having a cappuccino, much less a 100% tip. That's just being extravagant and showing off, not to mention grabbing a photo opportunity. No wonder Ms Ariani gushes how lovely he is.

Sure beats being mugged in Tottenham, though!

    Little update: a few minutes ago, at about 9 pm, Downing Street announced that SamCam will be boarding a plane tonight and they'll be back in the early hours of tomorrow, so the PM can chair a COBRA meeting.

    Personally, I think the tip broke the bank and they've run out of money...

    Stands and applauds Screwie for the cameron comment. My question is, what the h - e - double hockeysticks made it newsworthy in the first place?

    Seriously!

    As for London, I sincerely hope that you live in a safe area Screwie! My thoughts always go to friends I know who live in London when I hear of something happening, and this just beggars belief!

    And I hear that a third night of rioting has already started, and it's not even dark yet. *sigh*
