I guess those off-shore accounts just don't pay out as much as you'd expect.

Hi Lucie. For them what don’t know, what is object-oriented ontology?

"It’s this theory to do with the privileging of non-human objects over actual humans. It’s about what happens when you view all objects as equal."

Who does that then?

I do wonder if that car will ever get used? Looks like a cheap PR opportunity.

Most people who know nothing about cars would take along a mate who knows something about cars, rather than have their security detail check it over. It's a shame that Dave doesn't have any mates with experience of cars and the second-hand car market.

“I didn’t give him a discount, he paid the screen price,"

Oh Dave! Rookie error, nobody pays the screen price, if you wanna be a real down to earth geezer, you gotta haggle!

Poor Bumface. Ha can't win. If had haggled it would have been a national scandal that he was using his influence against a poor wee sole trader and he would have got slagged off at PMQs for being a tight-wad.

He could always send someone else to buy a car, easier and possibly more cost effective than dragging his whole security team along for the ride.

Has Hariet Harman denounced this outrageous example of sexism yet?

"It’s this theory to do with the privileging of non-human objects over actual humans. It’s about what happens when you view all objects as equal."

In an honest world, it'd have been after saw his performances as Scotty in the Star Trek movies and retired from acting.
