‘Muscles’ Madonna

Tag: Entertainmentwendy @ 5:05 pm

Madonna was pictured recently going for a walk in London after one of her workouts at the gym. Madge works out for two hours a day six days a week and boy does it show!

How old is she, 50…? looking at her sinewy arms and tiny waist you’d say ‘no way’, but of course then you get a look at her hands and face. One thing about maintaining certain parts of the body beyond a certain age is that it shows up elsewhere…and with Madge it shows up on her face. But then again Madonna was never really pretty, or all that feminine to start with…rather boyish if you ask me. Mind you, I admire her clout, her business acumen, her balls-y spirit.

But for all that Madonna, despite her name, is not exactly the last word in femininity. By the way Madge, whilst you spend so much time at the gym, who is looking after that little boy you purchased from Africa a while back…?

And what are you going to do about your daughter’s mono-brow ? we all know you home school your kids, but sometime, someday, Lourdes is going to have to face the real world…but hopefully not with this…! (or that tiny hint of a moustache…)

Gosh I’m a bitch….

Famous words

Tag: Newswendy @ 10:19 am

As the elections in Zimbabwe have drawn to a close and the people wait to be reassured that Robert Mugabe has been ousted, I was watching him on the news a while ago lying through his teeth about his practice of election rigging. His words were “I have always been honest and everything has been conducted above board“. What a laugh, and I think he actually believes himself which is the big worry. Anyway, it got me thinking about other world leaders who similarly uttered equally ridiculous words that had absolutely nothing to do with the truth; here’s a few examples…

Richard Nixon, US President: I am not a crook!

Bill Clinton, US President : I did not have sexual relations with that woman!

Neville Chamberlain, British Prime Minister 1938: My good friends this is the second time in our history that there has come back from Germany to Downing Street peace with honor.  I believe it is peace in our time.

Bob Hawke, Australian Prime Minister 1987: We set ourselves this first goal: by 1990 no Australian child will be living in poverty.

Gough Whitlam, Australian Prime Minister, 1975: Well may we say God Save the Queen, but of course nothing will save the Governor General.

Martin McGuiness, Deputy First Minister Northern Ireland 2005: I am not a member of the IRA Army Council.

Tony Blair, British Prime Minister 1997:  Mine is the first generation able to contemplate the possibility that we may live our entire lives without going to war or sending our children to war.

But I leave the last words to this Australian Prime Minister…

Malcolm Fraser, Australian Prime Minister 1975-83: Life wasn’t meant to be easy.

The bane of a teenagers life

Tag: Commercial,Family Life,health/lifestylewendy @ 8:58 am

When I was in my teens I was one of those annoying people that never suffered one single blemish on my skin; whilst my girlfriends were plastering their faces with all kinds of pimple potions, squeezing and popping, I sailed through my teen years with a nice clear complexion and they hated it.

My son William though was not so lucky and about 14 years of age developed the beginnings of acne; I bought many preparations and sought out all the latest developments in acne treatment and some of them made his skin worse. Funnily, since he left here and returned to Australia his skin has just about cleared up. He is twenty now so maybe the age thing has kicked in and he has simply grown out of it, but of course the healthy climate and sunshine could also be a factor.

Whatever the cause though it is interesting that his two brothers (14 & 22 ) are not bothered with this condition at all.

Zimbabwe must oust Mugabe and then make him pay

Tag: Newswendy @ 3:25 pm

For the first time in a thirty year reign of utter terror President Mugabe of Zimbabwe looks set to look defeat in the face at the countries elections, and it is face of defeat that will hopefully have the last desperate laugh at this murderous despot.

Single handedly this man has taken what was once the strongest economy in Africa and reduced to it to nothing…with inflation of 200,000 percent the currency of the country is as worthless as it could be and to a man whose main weapon was always bribery his tool was not money…but food. He has starved an entire people into submission…but the tide is turning as his own soldiers are now tearing his pictures down from public places. Today, the people of Zimbabwe go to the polls to vote in the most significant elections since the country was granted independence from Britain in 1980.

But this is a maniac who will not go quietly even though he must know his days are numbered; conceding defeat will leave him and his supporters at the mercy of those who will, hopefully, bring him to justice for what he has done to a proud people and a once prosperous nation.

This man used the nation’s main produce, maize, as a way to reward his supporters and withheld it to punish his opposers but it seems that his bargaining powers have run out.  Should he attempt to rig yet anouther election result the promised bloodshed will be of his doing and possibly his undoing. No doubt he will go into exile but it will be an exile where he will be looking over his shoulder for the rest of his life.

Zimbabwe, hopefully, will get through these elections and look to rebuild their nation. Mugabe might be looking defeat in the face; Zimbabweans can only look to the future.


The elections are underway and here is something that could only happen in a Mugabe election. In a region of 24,000 registered voters over 8000 votes have been registered from an area that is completely deserted of people. 8000 so-called ‘people’ have voted in an area where no people are said to be living…and of course, those ‘people’ will have voted for Mugabe…

We can only hope that this creton, his Chanel-wearing wife and all their supporters, are brought to justice when this complete farce is over and sanity once again rules in Zimbabwe.
