Can I just check that nobody has been changing definitions in the Oxford English Dictionary....?

No...?

OK. In that case I'd like to present the winning entry for the 2018 VP ironic news story of the year. Tony Blair talking about forcing tech companies to follow 'ethical standards'  Banghead

I wonder if someone used sock puppets or cartoons to explain to him what ethics are.  cussing:

What utter scum the 'man' is...  noooo:

I couldn't agree more, I will admit though when I first read the article and saw this picture:



I had a flash from Red Dwarf where Rimmer says "Mr Flibble's very cross"

"A gottle of geer"

Just had a crack at making a morph from Tony to Mr Flibble but it's going to need much better photo editing software than I have to get the second picture right.  noooo:

Pity, given how much traction the NPC meme gained in such a short time and just how easy a target Tony would be I suspect this could be a lot of fun once unleashed...  Sinister:

Some days I think the only thing keeping me from becoming homicidal is that the voices can't agree on which weapon would be the most fun.
