Nero fiddled as Rome burned, his alter ego Cameroon the stupid, simply lavishes taxpayer money on stupidities.
Jeered and laughed at during his idiotic attempts to get popularity at the Olympics, he now wants to be a Modern Major General, stand up Mrs Putin.
WWI centenary plans announced
David Cameron has announced plans to mark the centenary of the Great War. National commemorations will be held on the anniversary of the first day of conflict on the 4th August 2014 and for the first day of the Somme on 1st July 2016.
PM: Future generations to learn of 'extraordinary sacrifice'
Prime Minister David Cameron said the World War One centenary commemorations will ensure that future generations remember and learn about the "extraordinary sacrifice" of the soldiers that died in the Great War. He said:
This was the extraorinary sacrifice of a generation. It was a sacrifice they made for us, and it is right that we should remember them.
The Centenary will also provide the foundations upon which to build an enduring cultural and educational legacy to put young people front and centre in our commemoration and to ensure that the sacrifice and service of 100 years ago is still remembered in 100 years time.
WWI centenary funding
- The Government will give £5 million to a new Centenary Education Programme.
- It will also give £5 million to the Transforming Imperial War Museum project, in addition to the £5 million it has already given.
- The Heritage Lottery Fund has announced an additional £6 million to enable young people working in their communities to conserve, explore and share local heritage of the First World War. This is in addition to the £9 million they have already given to projects marking the centenary.
£50m committed to WWI centenary
The Prime Minister said more than £50 million is being committed to the WWI centenary commemorations.
PM: 'Remembrance must be the hallmark of our commemorations'
The Prime Minister said "remembrance must be the hallmark of our commemorations" as he announced plans for the centenary of WWI.
I am determined that Government will play a leading role with national events and new support for educational initiatives.
These will include national commemorations for the first day of conflict on the 4th August 2014 and for the first day of the Somme on 1st July 2016.
And together with partners like The Commonwealth War Graves Commission and the custodians of our Remembrance, The Royal British Legion, there will be further events to commemorate Jutland, Gallipoli and Passchendaele, all leading towards Armistice Day in 2018.
Thinktank: We need decide if Remembrance Sunday 2012 will be special
We all need to decide if Remembrance Sunday in 2014 is going to feel pretty much like any other Sunday where Rooney plays for Man United [sic] against Arsenal... and all the garden centres and supermarkets open just as usual.
Or should this be a special Sunday where we close the shops and have a football-free day and find ways to bring us together and understand our history and the country we have become?"
–Poll: 69% of people want WWI centenary to be different
A YouGov online poll on behalf of the think tank British Future suggests that 69% of people want Remembrance Sunday 2014 to be commemorated differently.
More than 80% of 1,700 British adults surveyed thought bells should be rung across the UK and flags should fly at half-mast, and just over half thought major sports events should be moved to another day.
But the survey also suggested people were divided over whether shops should be closed - with 45% for and 45% against the proposal.

The newspaper says that Mr Cameron will say that the Government is throwing its weight behind the commemorations of the beginning of the Great War in 1914.
It also reports that the marking of the anniversary of the Great War is likely to focus on a new £4.5million permanent exhibition at the Imperial War Museum in south London.
