Who should be the next head of MI6? 🤔 Why Mary Poppins of course! 😊
I imagine most men that had sit down to watch Mary Poppins Returns this Christmas, with their wife and children, where thinking… 🤔
“Am I coming back down after midnight to watch this again… and wanking one off?” 😆
Thank God I didn’t have that problem, because I was sat there with a hard un a dog couldn’t chew on for the entire duration of the movie.
I doubt I’m not the only guy who thinks the new Mary Poppins is wildly, unbelievably, off the dickedher scale sexy as fuck!!!
(you know she’s wearing stockings and suspenders and lacy knickers and bra underneath! Some really cool shit I don’t even know about!)

The heads of both MI5 and MI6 are due to step down in the new year at a time of ongoing threats from Islamist extremists, Russia and the rise of China, The Telegraph understands.
Two new top spies, who could be posted in from outside the agencies, will face immediate global problems in these “dangerous times,” a former intelligence official has told the Telegraph.

A long-serving woman diplomat has been tipped as a frontrunner in two races for plum government roles next year: chief of MI6 and British ambassador to Washington.
Dame Karen Pierce, 60, is Britain’s permanent representative to the United Nations, the first woman to hold the position, which she took up in March last year. Having won the respect of the prime minister, she is expected to be promoted to one of the two most prestigious civil service roles next year and would be the first woman to hold either post.
In almost 40 years in the diplomatic service, Dame Karen has been posted to Tokyo, Geneva and the Balkans and was the UK’s ambassador to Afghanistan in 2015 and 2016.
Will Dame Karen Pierce become Britain’s next Ambassador to the US? Straight-talker once dubbed ‘fab’ by Donald Trump emerges as frontrunner

- She would become the first woman to hold the coveted Washington job
- The 60-year-old career diplomat has served in America as well as the Balkans
- Mr Trump has a notoriously testy relationship with the current UK Ambassador
She was once dubbed ‘fab’ by President Donald Trump – and now our most prominent female diplomat has emerged as the frontrunner to be Britain’s next Ambassador to the US.
Straight-talker Dame Karen Pierce is currently serving as the UK’s representative at the United Nations and would become the first woman to hold the coveted Washington job.ADVERTISEMENT
Ahead of the start of post-Brexit trade talks with the United States, expected to begin in earnest once Britain leaves the European Union on January 31, the Government is hoping to ‘reset’ diplomatic relations in Washington after a strained period of embarrassing gaffes and rows.
Mr Trump has a notoriously testy relationship with the current UK Ambassador after a series of bitter public spats.
Outgoing Sir Kim Darroch announced he would be stepping down after The Mail on Sunday revealed details of diplomatic cables in which he slammed the current US administration.
Sir Kim had described Mr Trump as ‘inept’, ‘insecure’ and ‘incompetent’ in the explosive memos to Downing Street, which were leaked to this newspaper.
In response, Mr Trump said that the United States would not deal with him any longer and branded him ‘a very stupid guy’, effectively ruling him persona non grata in the US capital.
It was later claimed that Sir Kim felt his resignation was inevitable when then Tory leadership frontrunner Boris Johnson failed to publicly support him at the height of the row.
Diplomatic sources claim Mr Trump has privately heaped praise on Dame Karen, and described her as ‘fab’ when dealing with her at the UN.
Mr Johnson is also understood to be ‘a huge fan’ of Dame Karen, having worked closely with her during his time as Foreign Secretary.
However, neither Mr Trump or Mr Johnson should underestimate Dame Karen, who tells a formidable tale during speeches of her time as Ambassador in Kabul.
When her official motorcade was blocked by an overbearing Afghan army general, her bodyguard leapt out to inform the busybody that she must be allowed to proceed, saying: ‘She’s the British Ambassador, and she doesn’t take orders from anyone.’
Dame Karen claims ‘it is a pretty good description of an ambassador’.
A final decision on the plum posting is expected to be made early in the New Year.
