Big News! Boris Johnson finally managed to deport somebody to Rwanda – himself. Sadly, unlike the unfortunates who might find themselves flying there courtesy of the UK taxpayer, he has a return ticket for himself and his fragrant wife Carrie Antoinette. Perhaps after two crushing defeats last night, losing Wakefield and Honiton (Honiton has been Tory since forever) by, as Trump would say, ” a lot”, and the immediate resignation of his Party Chairman Oliver Dowden, the Johnsons will stay in Rwanda, the country whose virtues the Tories have been extolling.
Johnson is there for a Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting. WTF did not know that Rwanda (and Mozambique) were in the Commonwealth, not being former British colonies. But then, unlike the Brits who voted to Brexit six years ago today, countries seem keen to be members of organisations and alliances. This week both Ukraine and Moldova took their first official steps to join the EU. It seems that while President Zelinskyy thinks highly of Johnson, who seems to spend more time in Kyiv than he does in Parliament, he is less enamoured of his friend’s views on the advantages of the organisation we voted to leave in June 2016 and left in January 2020. Not that we have finally sorted out the problem of Northern Ireland, which is why we are now proposing to introduce legislation to allow us to break the agreement we negotiated about it, even though it was touted as a great triumph at the time.
Deputy Prime Minister and Lord Chancellor, Dominic Raab, is promoting another bout of convention hokey- cokey. This time, we are waving two fingers at the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg because it is apparently unconscionable for Brits to have their laws and policies interfered with by foreigners who for some reason imagine that they are entitled to interpret those laws and policies in the light of the Articles of the Convention that Britain itself largely drafted only a few years after the end of World War Two – with the input and encouragement of that well known lefty, Sir Winston Churchill. Raab proposes to change the law so that we can ignore anything in the Convention we don’t like and any judgments that we don’t agree with. Raab is also contemplating allowing government ministers to disagree with any judicial review of ministerial decisions by UK judges, even though they are not even foreign. But it appears that Johnson, Raab and others are interested in proclaiming our freedoms as long as they don’t have to uphold them if they don’t like them. Rather like Johnson’s role model, Trump, who put aside the trifling fact that he had lost in order to subvert the 2020 election, and damn near succeeded, the attitude prevailing in Westminster, as it did and still does in parts of Washington D.C, is that you do what you want, say what you like, fill your own or pals’ pockets with loads of money and then avoid the consequences by denying the facts or changing the rules or both. The voters of Wakefield and Honiton have shown Johnson what they think of him and his arrogance. He says he will listen. He always says that. But he never means it.
We start our review of the week’s wanky wear in NYC with singer Lil Nas X inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame wearing who knows what?
Bless him. His fringe is so long that he was unable to see where he was going as he wandered out across Madison Avenue, where he got hit by a truck and run over. Look – you can see the skid marks…..
Next up, we have actor Winston Duke wearing Dolce & Gabbana on the front row of its fashion show during Milan Fashion Week.
Great dressing gown. Great pyjamas. But not to be worn outdoors. Because they are a dressing gown and pyjamas. As for the basketwork shoes, WTF prefers not to speak of them.
The Tribeca Film Festival is STILL going on. It is taking longer than the January 6 hearings. Here is actor Julia Fox wearing not very much, so no change there….
Julia featured last week but this is even worse because there is even less of it, to whit a Pretty Woman Minge Moment mini, which is more of a belt, and a bralet-cum- neck-clamp. As for the eyebrows, they are preposterous and unnerving in equal measure.
And now we have a pair of Harlequins who are as silly as silly can be. First, we are in London where we encounter splendid actor Michael Shannon at the Paramount + Dinner .
Dearie me. He has raided the nearest Sue Ryder Charity Shop attempting to emulate Picasso’s Harlequin with a Mirror. Only Picasso’s harlequin did not wear horrible trainers and WTF is also willing to wager that the shade of his trousers matched the shade of his jacket. Memo to Michael – buy a travel iron.
Our other harlequin is in Miami, namely actor Casey Thomas Brown at the premiere of the remade Father of the Bride, wearing Wiederhoeft.
We are all sick to death of shocking pink, but WTF could have lived with the basic suit were it not for the plethora of dangly bits. He looks like a maypole that rustics dance around in episodes of The Larkins and Midsomer Murders.
Finally, here is actor Tessa Thompson at the launch of the latest series of WestWorld wearing Interior.
The front of the alleged ‘dress’ has a built-in, encrusted, crotch cup as well as incorporated tit-toppers, while the back gives use the now-near-mandatory arse cheeks. It took WTF a while to work out that there is a bum-bow, because for a white she thought it was a small rodent. Yurgle.
What the actual FUCK!!!!??????? What is next? How about some Grenfell jeans? Or maybe a pair commemorating the latest school massacre in Uvalde Texas? Unacceptable, and then some. These jeans have so Got To Go…
OK Readers, that’s your lot for this week. Please keep the comments coming, as well as your excellent suggestions for It’s Got To Go. Let us meet again next Friday when you will get to decide the WTF Summer Stinker 2022. Be good x
