New Labour's Celebrity Icon...

...must surely be Kerry Katona, mustn't it?

Sorry, I meant 'troubled Kerry Katona', as it seems she is always referred to these days:
Troubled star Kerry Katona was released by police ­yesterday after being arrested on suspicion of punching her ­accountant.
You'd think the last person who'd punch an accountant would be Kerry Katona, wouldn't you?

Given how much in need of one she has been since...ohh, forever.
The mother-of-four is accused of hitting David McHugh, 50, in the face and smashing up his office ­during a row over her dwindling finances.
I can see why she was the chosen face of Iceland, can't you?
A worker called police on Wednesday after Kerry, 28, allegedly forced her way into the office in Warrington and screamed at Mr McHugh: “You’ve ruined my life.”
He has...?

You don't think some of that might be down to you?

Of course not. How silly of me...
It is believed the incident at his office was sparked after bankruptcy advisers told Kerry she was running out of money. She allegedly blamed Mr McHugh for her financial woes.
Why not? It's the Nu Labour way, innit?

Though she really, really should pick better accountants:
The accountant, banned from being a company director until 2010, was jailed in 2004 for fraud after setting up a company to help firms recover debts.
Well, I know that'd convince me that Mr McHugh was the man for the job...

I do have a little bit of sympathy for Katona, not much, but some.

Her type almost exclusively rely on other people to give them self-esteem and confidence, and from there it all goes horribly wrong.

My ex was similar in some ways, although infinitely more classy than Katona and with a better head on her shoulders. She still had a [i]blame others[/i] tendency and spent needlessly on things.

He should have just punched her back and removed her from his office permenantly.

But then he would have been done for asault.

Has anyone got some spare mint sauce?

"Her type almost exclusively rely on other people to give them self-esteem and confidence, and from there it all goes horribly wrong."

Very true. No doubt exactly the types pop band managers and the purveyors of reality show tv are relying on for their bread and butter.

"But then he would have been done for asault."

Oh, almost certainly. And it would have garnered even more column inches in 'Hello' magazine...

Mike said...

So you tell me Julia, a woman who clearly has more balls than most men I have met. Why is it when a man hits a woman its obviously an assualt and when a woman hits a man its standing up for women's rights?

btw, I realy do need a good supply of some mint sauce, there's a lamb in my back garden that doesn't belong to me and its got Sunday dinner written all over it.

Mike said...

And yes I know, the livestock belongs to someone.

You have 24 hrs to get it

Cheap matches used to prop the eyes open whilst taking in her latest faux pas, may result in the snap..zzzz..effect.

He's closely related to me. He is a total crook. I have a great deal of sympathy for Katona.

I will also make a prediction that the rozzers will take much more interest in his antics than hers.

He once got a company credit black-listed and put out of business for oweing 4p.

They are still looking for 3.6m quid he er... lost.

And he has no accountancy qualifications whatsoever.

I'm a frequent commentator here but I'm doing this one anon for obvious reasons.

Julia, the last letter of my 5 letter moniker might give you a clue.

Mike said...

He may well be a crook. She, Kerry, needs to grow up. Mostly for the sake of her children.

JuliaM said...

"Why is it when a man hits a woman its obviously an assualt and when a woman hits a man its standing up for women's rights?"

Because it isn't. Only the most moronic of feminists could possibly think so.

Mind you, that's still an impressively large field...

"I will also make a prediction that the rozzers will take much more interest in his antics than hers. "

They are probably pretty fed up with hers. I know I am...

"Julia, the last letter of my 5 letter moniker might give you a clue."

Heh! It's like the 'Da Vinci Code'... :)

How many men are femanists?

Mike said...

Is being a feminist better or worse than being a racist?

Why do people like Bjork, Crowe, Winehouse et al have to be "troubled" all the time. Why do they think lack of control is OK?

Ross said...

I can see Kerry Katona would be a new Lablour icon, in fact given her profligate spending habits she could well be the next Labour Chancellor.

Failing that she could at least head a task force or become a czar to help her cope with her money worries.

Some places I've been to, they both actually qualify as 'foreplay' ;)

Going to Starbucks for coffee is like going to prison for sex. You know you're going to get it, but it's going to be rough.

Mike said...

A femanist once informed me:
I went on a girls' night out recently. The invitation said 'dress to kill'. I went as Rose West.

Mike said...

I'm sure wherever my dad is; he's looking down on us. He's not dead, just very condescending.

Ian B said...

Well. He's an accountant. A little bird tells me he's also a crook.

People rely on experts to be honest. The whole reason for employing an accountant is that they know stuff about money that one doesn't know oneself. Otherwise one would do it oneself. So, sounds like Katona lost her rag when she realised he's wrecked her financial position.

Oh, wait, do we not all like Kerry Katona because's she's common? Is that it? No sympathy for Kerry.

Oh, okay, what a slag, deserves all she gets, the slattern, and so on, etc, etc

You don't think her reckless spending and profligate drug habits might have a smidgen to to with that?

"Oh, wait, do we not all like Kerry Katona because's she's common?"

I'm not sure what 'common' means these days. I can think of a hell of a lot of modern 'celebrities' who act exactly the same, despite the best of upbringings and all the education and socialisation their wealthy parents can provide.
