Hypocrite Gary Neville hates the gig economy…unless it’s a well-paid one in Qatar

THE race for the prestigious Thick As A Plank Hypocrite Of The Year (TAAPHOTY) award is heating up.

Gary Neville said he had the prize in his pocket, but then the fantastically unfunny “comedian” Joe Lycett came along and almost stole it from him.

Congratulations, Gary. You have won your prize. In the end no one came close. Now see if you can keep the trophy next year

Lycett made a fuss over the money David Beckham received from the Qatari government.

Coincidentally, Beckham was indeed one of the TAAPHOTY nominees for his excellent work in getting money from the Arabs after spreading bright LGBTQ slogans and whatnot.

But it’s a bit much for ghastly Lycett to try.

As revealed by The Sun, he had a few paid gigs in Qatar in 2015. So the biter bit. Pure, unadorned, hypocrisy.

But Joe always had a lot of work snatching the trophy from Gary Neville.

The Mancunian football expert wins by a length. Not least for his amazing pig ignorance.

Neville is paid for his brilliance as a football expert, for example not being sure “where the goals are going to come from” just before Spain’s 7-0 win. He doesn’t get paid for his political nous – which is a good thing, because you could put your whole thing in a vole’s sack.

Not just stupid, it’s hideous

Commenting on Qatar’s disgraceful record of forced labor use, he said: “It is only worth noting that we have a current government in our country that demonizes rail workers, ambulance workers and, frighteningly, nurses.

“So in our country we have to deal with workers’ rights – but where football goes we have to take on workers’ rights everywhere because people have to be treated equally.

“We cannot allow people to be paid starvation wages for their work. We cannot have people in shelters that are unsavory and disgusting. That must not happen here.”

You pathetic idiot, Neville. To compare the plight of British workers striking for more money to slave labor in Qatar is not only silly, it’s abhorrent.

I agree that nurses should be paid better, sure. But they don’t get killed, do they? Also, their passports are not taken away from them so that they cannot move freely.

Maybe this chubby, wooden-headed clown should see what happens when the people of Qatar go on strike.

Industrial action is illegal in Qatar and the few migrant workers who dared to complain about their appalling treatment have been rounded up, arrested and then expelled from the country.

To compare your plight to that of the nurses here is simply unheard of.

But then there’s Neville’s hypocrisy. He was happy working in Qatar and wearing a lot of dosh. He was even happy to work as a pundit for Qatari TV.

This is hypocrisy on a whole other level. And maybe he should take some time to listen to the complaints of the underpaid workers at a place called Hotel Football.

Hotel Football is located in Manchester and is co-owned by Neville and adorable little Ryan Giggs. It is currently recruiting staff – for just £9.50 an hour.

That’s the minimum wage. Over the course of a year, the people who worked at this idiot’s luxury hotel made about half the salary of a nurse.

So congratulations, Gary. You have won your prize. In the end no one came close. Now see if you can keep the trophy next year.

Pretty likely, I reckon.


Things are getting a little hot on the Indo-Chinese border, with troops throwing stones at each other.

The two countries are on the brink of a war over disputed territory.

Normally we would be four squares behind the Indians. But the country has refused to condemn Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

And they used the war to secure a massive gas deal with the Russians.

So plug it, India. You’re on your own. What’s up. . .


Yule never believes. . .

THE phrase “Merry Christmas” was first written by Bishop Charles Booth of Hereford in 1520, 14 years earlier than originally thought, according to new research. Okay good.

I did my own study of the origins of traditional Christmas things and found the following. . .

  • Robins are associated with Christmas because in the 12th century this was the largest bird poor people could afford for their festive dinner.
  • The 1914 Christmas peace between German and English soldiers was nearly ruined when a Brazilian wandered into no man’s land and insisted on refereeing the football game, and England later denied three penalties.
  • In 1255, the Genoese diplomat Luca Grimaldi was tasked with finding a suitable gift for his mother-in-law. He instructed his kitchen staff to “create something huge, dry, and inedible that she might choke on.” Thus Panettone was born.
  • Wizzard’s 1973 hit I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday was actually written by King Henry VIII in 1512.
  • While Christmas was banned by Oliver Cromwell in the 1640s, people were still expected to eat turkey because Cromwell owned a huge turkey farm (and actually invented the Turkey Twizzlers).

Speaking of Christmas, this is more than parody.

Dating back centuries, the much-loved Christmas carol God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen was rewritten by an American idiot and sung in a Leicestershire church.

The second verse now begins: “God rest on you too, women who have been wiped out by men, ignored and despised by history, defiled and cast out”.

So it’s silly, tendentious, and doesn’t even rhyme or scan. Or make sense.

The third verse begins, “God rest, strange and questioning, let thy anxious hearts be still.” I think it is too much to hope for divine lightning to strike the Church.


TIME TO THANK NURSES

THE shackles and gimp mask I ordered as a gift for our local vicar have not arrived.

I blame the flashy posties. It’s a shame that spry ministers aren’t getting the gifts they deserve this Christmas.

The government should reach a decent agreement with the nurses instead of pretending that they are not the last resort

Meanwhile, the nurses and ambulance workers are on the move.

And the two sides argue over who should take the blame when we pop our clogs because we can’t get hospital treatment.

The government should reach a decent agreement with the nurses instead of pretending that they are not the last resort.

We can bang our pots together for the NHS until doomsday but it’s a decent wage which nurses really want.

Light just around the corner

Well, thank the Lord. The shortest day of the year is over.

From now on the days will be longer and brighter. And warmer.

This year has been a struggle for many people – hard working people find it very difficult to make ends meet.

But this misery won’t last forever – there’s light just around the corner, so have some hope.

And have a wonderful Christmas.

‘Only God can judge me’

MELISSA SLOAN feels terribly hurt. She says she was locked out of her child’s nativity play and had to see him through a window.

She was also banned from the city’s Christmas market and her local pubs.

The reason is that her entire face and body is covered with hundreds of tattoos on top.

She’s surprised people don’t want to look at her.

One of Melissa’s tattoos reads, “Only God can judge me.”

Hmmm. I would get that colored. Because as you now know, it’s not true, is it?
