lets move along now; I hear with interesst that nasty failed journalist MP Irene NG is getting married to a poor unsuspecting scotsman, stupid sod.

Going to be interesting to know shether or not the stupid two faced NG lady is planning to produce a sprog, after she allows the scotsman's huge chopper to enter her virginal body.

what a terrible thought, a half NG unleashed on the poor Island.
