Look! Feminist T-Shirts!
Good - pretend to be straight so some stupid guy buys you dinner.
Better - invite your girlfriend to join you and watch as he frantically plies you both with drinks in a futile attempt to engineer a threesome.
Best - send him home to play World of Warcraft while you and your girlfriend head over to Stand-Up For Women, May 19th, Comedy Pub, Oxenden Street.
Or have I missed something? T-Shirts available from one of those crappy tourist places on the Tottenham Court Road end of Oxford Street where despite the evidence presented about you are apparently "not allowed" to take photos (ooops). Tickets for Stand-Up For Women available from email@example.com. Guys welcome, just not the sort of dickheads who go round in T-Shirts like this one!

What The Hell!!
I can't express how angry I am about this. Especially when Facebook has not taken down (though I know I for one have reported it as abusive) the group page "FUCK OFF WITH YOUR TRAGIC STATUSES ABOUT HOW "MEN R ALL TWATS" you slut." which operates with the tag line "Go run infront of a bus. You DUTTY MUGGY BITCH.". Really - that group exists, you can go look if you're on Facebook. Clearly that is not offensive whereas a woman in bunches talking too fast about David Cameron is...
I was in the process of making a sequel to the sketch, now I am starting to feel it might be more productive to bang my head against the nearest brick wall. So let me say finally: AAAARRRGGGGHHHHHHH!!!!!!!

Today the Tory manifesto was launched and facebook was kind enough to show me an advert for the Conservatives facebook page. I clicked of course, since advertisers normally get paid per click and I feel at least some of Lord Ashcroft's money should be spent on me! The page had at the top the new manifesto, and right next to it a very, very unflattering picture of Gordon Brown and what I can only describe as, well, I suppose an "attack"...Almost seems like Mr Cameron just says any old toss he thinks we want to hear and doesn't even bother to check if he own party website directly contradicts what he says. Well in the interests of political balance I would hate to put up a picture of Mr Brown here on the Cru-blog and not one of Mr Cameron. Here's one that really brings out his natural warmth and humanity:What a smug over-paid slimy misogynist git. Also pictured: Peter Stringfellow.
