Lord Browne: Hinted here first

Lord Browne's current problems were flagged up a little while ago on Arcati - click here. So much for my unreliability.

Current problems? Like what? Where else are they talked about?

How lovely, my first commenter from Mars - or should that be Uranus?

A wonderful twist of fate on the BBC lunchtime news as poor old Lord Browne went into his office this morning - a van emblazoned with Pink Paper driving past...

Milord Brown is a flawed businessman, but to imply that he is a flawed human being merely because he choose not to discuss his sexuality is a bit of a moral stretch.

I don't care that he lied in court about being gay. I really don't care. And I doubt that he dipped into BP's cash mountain to buy trinkets for his lover.

The entire "scandal" is a tabloid construct. If half the attention given to Brownie's sex life had been devoted to the governance of BP and the other oil giants, we might have a story worth reading.

I hope you enjoyed your time in the Israeli entity.

Neither from Mars, nor from Uranus. From a place on Earth where that kind of so-called 'scandal' doesn't even make one line in the newspapers. Yes, I know I'm lucky. Regarding those matters, the States and the UK are the most retarded countries in the Western area. Shame on them.

My dear Walter

I make no implication that Browne is a flawed human being because he refused to discuss his sexuality. However in fibbing to the court he's given his enemies something to beat him with - so they can launder the homophobia that drew them to the subject of his gay tart in the first place.

I am quite shocked at his generosity to the tart he picked up on the Suited & Booted escort website, even sending him thousands of dollars after they split up. My "Oscary" adjective was entirely right, it would appear.

Alas, a report on the governance of BP would not flog many newspapers, as I'm sure Rupert Murdoch will remind you next he calls you up. Even the Independent has rediscovered the joys of front page news reporting and actually gone all tabloid. The editor of that newspaper sticks his cock in cunts, by the way.

Indeed, most Fleet St editors stick their cocks in cunts and where you stick your cock is central in this debate, nothing to do with lying in court and other rubbish. This is a cock story.

As to the Israeli "entity", read my postcards and live vicariously. You sound like you could do with an Abianga.

My dear Madame,

I think "cock and bull" is the better epithet. They used to say "follow the money." You clearly agree – so long, that is, as the trail leads to amusing scenes of debauchery. But you are obviously having one of your spasms and I shouldn't mock.

I've been thinking. There has to be a medical term for the condition that afflicts you, which seems to be the written equivalent of Tourette Syndrome. Anyway, I hope they come up with a diagnosis soon, so that you can undertake treatment.

Who knows? In another year or two we may be able to present you at court.

Shalom!

Arcati said...

Darlingest Walt,

When I say that Fleet St eds tend to stick their cocks in cunts I do not think I am betraying symptoms of Tourette's, though I am grateful for your medical curiosity - likewise, I think of your precious prostate every day. No, I am simply reporting a fact. I could, for instance, say that the editor of the Guardian is a heterosexual who is suspected of playing away at the moment - it's not my policy to comment on idle gossip. But I could say he is suspected of sticking his cock in a cunt to which he is not married. Once reduced to basics, the activity of cock-cunting soon loses its glamour - and if applied regularly would soon achieve a reduction in newspaper sales.

The implication of cock-cunting is that cock-cocking is a minor outrage, even these days (likewise cunt-cunting). The liberal cock-cunters pretend to be tolerant of the inversion but quietly pray that their nearest and dearest won't be afflicted. Does that sum you up, Walt?

Your book is in the post btw. I can scarcely contain my excitement at the psychological nuggets that await me. I may run an abridgement on Arcati - I'll send you some shekels, natch.

Arcati's offended virtue speaks loud and proud :

<< I am quite shocked at his generosity to the tart he picked up on the Suited & Booted escort website, even sending him thousands of dollars after they split up. >>

Ladies and gentlemen, if you ever believed that the Holy Inquisition disappeared from the face of the earth, it's a tragic mistake. The Holy Inquisition is alive and well, it has simply changed hands... and religion. Tabloid hacks and celebrity hounds hold it all, now.

What would you say, Madame, if that supreme media court suddenly demanded that you justify yourself for spending your honestly earned money in erotic massages at the Carmel Forest Spa Hotel in Israel, hmmm ?
So, what's your justification for refusing to others the sensual pleasures you generously indulge yourself ? Is there any intrinsic difference between Lord Browne's private story and yours ? You both have to pay for your intimate satisfaction and comfort, don't you ? That's sad. Have some sympathy.

Duralex said...

<< So, what's your justification for refusing to others the sensual pleasures you generously indulge yourself ? >>

OOOPS, I think I should have typed "you generously indulge yourself in", right ? And I'm sure there's a big bunch of mistakes I didn't control in my previous posts, tabernak ! Ah, well...

Arcati said...

Not to worry duralex, you wrote your piece with passion, and Arcati loves passion. This is why she can take criticism, she vampiracally feeds on the energy that turns emotion. People's actual opinions are incidental to my purpose.

As to what you write however, you appear to have turned into Dinu in his absence - probably in Mauritius with his fiddle - and got the wrong end of the stick. Why would I object to Lord Browne having ejaculatory experiences with another man? What is there in my piece that could possibly be construed as disapproval? Does not the tenor of this site tell you something about my attitudes? It astonishes me that obviously intelligent people just don't get it, and I'm too good a writer to send out wrong signals through the word - though I say it myself. I do not indulge in false modesty.

I am probably one of the best writer bloggers in the world.

I ran the story on Browne for one reason only: because I knew it. But quite frankly, if he's feeling lonely I'd happily pay some whore to blow him off because that's the kind of person I am. I wouldn't blow him myself because he's an ugly bastard.

Of course, it wouldn't occur to people who don't get out... of the UK that the rest of the world might have no particular reason to be interested in that very British incident. :-)

Why does my post appear twice? I'm not drunk yet! ;-)

Arcati said...

well, Arcati does tend to have a UK tendency. Probably there's some geographical connection.

Anonymous said...

Yes. An insular connection, actually. But never mind, Lord Browne's misadventures are quite edifying, anyway.

Duralex said...

<< Not to worry duralex, you wrote your piece with passion, >>

Did I, really ? This impression has to be the effect of my flamboyant rhetoric.

<< and Arcati loves passion. >>

I’m sure Dinu will appreciate.

<< This is why she can take criticism, she vampirically feeds on the energy that turns emotion. People's actual opinions are incidental to my purpose. >>

Interesting sublimation.

<< As to what you write however, you appear to have turned into Dinu in his absence >>

Tell me the truth : you don't miss him, do you ? :-)

<< and got the wrong end of the stick. >>

That’s probably because Dinu is a queer stick (sorry, pal, I never could resist the temptation of a joke, it must be a french cultural spell).

<< It astonishes me that obviously intelligent people just don't get it >>

Maybe some day I’ll tell you the very personal reason why this little bit just cracks me up.

<< I am probably one of the best writer bloggers in the world. >>

Sure.

<< But quite frankly, if he's feeling lonely I'd happily pay some whore to blow him off because that's the kind of person I am. I wouldn't blow him myself because he's an ugly bastard. >>

Ahem… Before declining, you could at least wait for him to ask you for it, don’t you think ? Are you forgetting who he is, and who you are supposed to be ? ;-)

Monsieur Duralex, I'm deeply offended! :-)
