When Total Politics met working class hero Owen Jones:

“Shane had Patagonian Cobbler (Sauvignon Blanc and apple liqueur mixed with peach puree and apple juice, topped with summer berries) and Taladro Argentino (vodka with Argentine mint syrup, lime cordial and fresh lime).

Owen drank lager.”

    Hmmm. Does he strike anyone who’s ever seen him on TV as a lager drinker?

    Does anyone happen to know what school(s) he went to?

    Ha. Less to do with pretending to have working class credentials and more to do with the fact it was a Monday night! Think I’ll skip the rest of the comments…

      Good for you sonny, because you’re going to be lighting these and many other pages up with well read and articulate counter-arguments you unfortunately may not like the sound of tomorrow night as well, just remember though, it IS what you always really wanted.
      If things don’t quite go your way, maybe give Penny a buzz and see if she’s got a spare room over in LA for you to bunk in so as you can ‘research’ your next masterpiece for a spell, until T4 give you both your own show that is…

    The Spelman injunction posting? I couldn’t possibly comment. Neither can anyone else, since the comments are closed. Mr. Fawkes: Is the Spelman posting subject to super-injunction? May we comment on the fact that we can’t comment?

    Some Geezer wot thinks, like everyone else, that Owen Jones is a poseur says:

    You know, maybe for being a poof, Owen Jones may not be all THAT poncy; it may just be he’s a man of simple tastes. Say, that gives me an idea– “O.J. Simple”! How’s about that for your image, Jonesy?

    I’ll bet it was only a half of lager too.
    My view on lager drinkers accords with that of the Macc Lads.
    Suggest he visits Gordon’s Takeaway next time.

Gyles Brandreth writes in his memoirs:

“Sunday, May 10, 1998

Early start: appearing on Breakfast With Frost, to be broadcast from 11 Downing Street. The Chancellor [Gordon Brown] is grouchily amiable, but so earnest — and still biting his fingernails to the quick.

After the show, he took us upstairs to his flat. He lives above No 10, while Blair and family are in the No 11 duplex, which is bigger and more like a proper house.

I was intrigued that, when he took us into his bedroom, the Chancellor rather ostentatiously opened the built-in wardrobes, as if he wanted us to see the women’s frocks that were hanging in there.

They looked quite large, but I don’t think they belong to Gordon. I assume they belong to his girlfriend [Sarah Macaulay, who he later married].

I presume he was keen for us to know that he has one — and that she’s not a ‘beard’. I don’t think he does anything without calculation.”

Now the SNP know how UKIP voters feel all the time.
