"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen."

Interview: Tory Candidate

He's new to me and I think it's fair to say that this comedian is equal-handed in his treatment of Conservatives and Labour:

  1. Great Britain was the best, GV. Then the bloody socialists took over.

  2. It's supposed to raise a wry smile of recognition OR. You've brought me smackbangdown to reality again ;-) It's a difficult one; at the moment Great Britain doesn't seem to exist - it's the UK. The name of the country has changed quite frequently in the past decades and there's no more British Isles (remember that one?), definitely no more England, Wales or Scotland, and no more Great Britain & N Ireland. We've been abbreviated to 'the UK'. No wonder the Scots/Welsh are occasionally so touchy - like the English they don't get a mention anywhere. The Northern Irish shouldn't worry either, the men of Ulster have already been sold out to Ireland in an EU deal. If you think the rest of it have it tough, think what N Ireland has been through to retain its connection to Queen and Britain - only to be sold out by this disgraceful govt.

  3. New to me too but a very funny chap who captures very well a 'typical tory toff twat' trying to get down wiv da yoof but mainly obsessed with the media.
    Mind you, the figure he portrays is more honest than traitor-in-waiting Dave.

    There is still " The British Isles". The weatherman refers to them sometimes but I fear that we will soon have to change all the stationary and logos to DK, Disunited Kingdom.

  4. I must have missed references to the British Isles because I prefer to get outside and have a look than listen to weather reports :-)
