Swivel-Eyed Europhile Eddie Izzard Backs Team €U

Given his track record for backing losers it’s probably a good thing that Labour Eddie Izzard has only half-heartedly backed Team GB:

Has he seen the Commonwealth count?


  1. 1
    Shire Tory says:

    UK and her ex-colonies are well into three figures I think!

  2. 2
    Shire Tory says:

    First! Gold to me!

  3. 3
    erm.... says:

    :blair and izzard…..useless in the world of politics.

  4. 4
    Tay King-dePisse says:

    Oh, Lizard, you’re just sore ‘coz they wouldn’t let you compete in drag!

  5. 5
    Alexsandr says:

    Pity he doesn’t f-ck off to france to team up with short arsed Hollande.

    he is unfully anyway.

  6. 6
  7. 7
    Diddley says:

    Dozy twunt.

  8. 8
    DaveyC says:

    Izzard is toxic to every political campaign his varnished nails touch. Best way to secure election victory is to ensure he’s batting for the other side.

  9. 9
    Kevin T says:

    Wow. I guess he was right all along that we should join the Euro then!

  10. 10
    I can go one bigger says:

    Very well done to @EU but I’ve also noted that the World has won 68 gold medals so far – beating Mars

  11. 11
    Seymour says:

    Maybe someone should remind Izzard that there is no such country recognised by the IOC

  12. 12
    SP4BS says:

    Stories based on other people’s twitters.

    Its got that bad has it?

  13. 13
    El Degredado says:

    I notice Izzard does not say how the eurozone countries are doing…

  14. 14
  15. 15
    OldCommie says:

    And the USSR would be on over 80 medals by that count.

  16. 16
    Harry says:

    I don’t think you want to do that.

  17. 17
    Nullbymouth says:

    Does the Guardian know what the capital of the EU is?

  18. 18
    Lord Stansted says:

    Blair I’ve heard of. Isn’t he the guy who started several wars. But Izzard?

  19. 19

    Don’t give the c’unt the oxygen. He has stolen enough of it already.

  20. 20
    Four-eyed English Genius says:

    Why qualify with the “world of politics” phrase?

  21. 21
    Eddie Who?... says:

    …And we’ve also noticed that you are a complete c*nt. Kindly f*ck off…

  22. 22
    ToonBob... says:

    Do they have drag racing ?

  23. 23
    annette curton says:

    Boring, whens the 50kg snatch?.

  24. 24
    annette curton says:


  25. 25
    Piers Morgan says:

    It’s a fact,925 of China’s gold medallists have sung their national anthem.

    Only 61% of Team GB’s gold medalllists have sung the national amthem.


  26. 26

    And if you add all of them up altogether, we’re beating the pants off Mars, Jupiter etc.

  27. 27
    Weybridgeman says:

    Can someone please explain to me why he is STILL considered funny….his last new bit of ‘comedy’ was 15 years ago and even that was a rip off of a Tommy Cooper joke….

  28. 28
    bergen says:

    Strange. I must have missed the army of supporters waving little royal blue flags featuring a circle of stars. It’s not like the BBC to miss them out.

    Or perhaps these people only exist in the fevered imagination of a ghastly dragartist.

  29. 29
    AC1 says:

    Glad he’s OK!

  30. 30
    Uncle Monty says:

    It is also worth remembering that if the EU competed then they would only be allowed one football team, one cyclist in each event, one rowing team, one relay team etc etc. Would make for a much lower total.

    Disingenuous and stupid. Typical Socialist.

  31. 31
    Moussa Koussa says:

    Saint Izzard does have a point

    Same as the USA always used to win the table, with the USSR 2nd.

    The Old USSR countries currently have 25+ golds

  32. 32
    Moussa Koussa says:

    I am just loving Guidos slow creep towards the UKIP fruit cakes….LOL

    Surely in your case it should be the RoIIP ( think about it )

    Be a man Guido, cancel your Conservative party membership, take Holely Moley H ( Tory Bear ) along with you.

    You are politically gut less, harping about the EU from the comfort of your Euro homeland. All in a tizzy.

    Or are you going to do a Dave – continue with this double facing nonsense that has been his undoing.

    The electorate are a fickle lot, But Nutty Farage…PLEASE

  33. 33
    Trahison des Clercs says:

    I am fairly sure that he bats for the other side on a long term basis.

    Trahison des Clercs says:

    Hello Munty Kutny, out of your pram and into your romper suit with your spoon and pusher,all by your little self. Nanny will be pleased.Not!!!

  36. 36
    Whippersnapper2 says:

    Was it Izzard who spelt the word commonwealth count? Has nobody told the a’hole there is no ‘o’ in it.

  37. 37
    Jimmy says:

    “Has he seen the Commonwealth count?”

    I make it 38 golds. I’m sure there was a point there.

  38. 38
    Baron Hogwash says:

    Here Lizard, I will giver you copper medal for your lousy films with the pathetic attempts to sound American and zilch for being funny.

  39. 39
    Bill Bell says:

    That Hunt’s about as clever as he is funny

  40. 40
    only two brain cells is enough if Izzard is your opponent says:

    …. but if competing as EU they (note ‘they’) wouln’t be allowed 26 entries (or more) per event.

    Izzard – what a caaaaaaaaaaaaannnnntT !. And a humourless nerk to boot

  41. 41
    Get a Grip says:

    Izzard is treading the well worn, and seemingly inexorable path of decline into celebrity eccentricity, as he becomes more and more detached from the lives and thoughts of ordinary people. See Morrissey, Madonna, Susan Sarandon and Sean Penn for particularly gruesome examples.

  42. 42
    Izzy or Izn't he says:

    Actually no. Izzard is straight despite his fondeness for transvestism. He says the majority of transvestites are actually straight.

    His still an unfunny, lefty dickhead though.

  43. 43
    Izzy or Izn't he says:

    No he doesn’t have a fucking point.

  44. 44
    Anonymous says:

    Exactly – the comparison is false – we should compare the uk with France or Germany or Italy ….

  45. 45
    Anonymous says:

    Quite right…. the thick twat obviously hasn’t realised that you’re not allowed to enter 27 teams under the same name and then add all their medals up.

    Eddie for labour PM!

    Cramp says:

    He was even less happy to discover there was no shirt lifting event.

  48. 48
    Arse says:

    And Wogan. His column in the DT is nuts.

  49. 49
    Ranter says:

    He used to be funny, now he’s just an old unfunny lefty Hunt.

    Captain Underpants Bryant says:

    Gizzard, he’s from a bad crop!

    Hell of a feckin’ prolapsed womb (or bollocks!)!

    that was so funny my 1 week old daughter shat herself when I read it

  53. 53

    Diane Abbott?

    Archie says:

    But this might be a breath of the proverbial……..? The comments say that he should go for it!

  55. 55
    roger federer says:

    how about the UN?

  56. 56
    roger federer says:

    The Milky Way’s comrade athletes have wiped the floor with The Andromeda Galaxy’s capitalist lackeys.

    Thus proving socialism == good

  57. 57
    roger federer says:

    what about a breakdown by religion or culture?

  58. 58
    erm.... says:

    wait and see.
    blair….competent when making money….his creativity is no crime. …..and once he has fasted for a while….for he is too bloated with himself at present…..he is without integrity……he will accept responsibility…will have remorse and move on… something useful. His destiny is patient and awaits him…….but he is impatient. He does not understand the meaning of time.

  59. 59
    erm.... says:

    we are at war with him because he is a warmonger. he will switch. firstly brown was against him and now the whole country. …you have to laugh.

    Izzard needs a good smothering with Vagisil, Its the best remedy for getting rid of an irritating c*nt.

    God Izzard is such a prat.

    Lucius Calidius Eroticus says:

    I’ve never considered comedians dressed in women’s clothes as oracles of wisdom. Maybe I’m just old fashioned.

  64. 64
    Lucius Calidius Eroticus says:

    If Guido had remembered that idiots should be starved of oxygen, we would be unlikely to know what he had said. The same goes for Morrisey, who should be killed, simply because his politics are shite, just like his music.

    Lucius Calidius Eroticus says:

    Don’t they all seem to fall farther left. I know that many actors and singers are of the dark side, but really. Why do they always seem to be the worst, most idiotic offenders? They seem to have this idea that they are deep of thought, but everything they pronounce is coloured black by their weird beliefs. An African child is more worthy of adoption than a crack baby from their own country, Argentina deserves FI because they are not Britain, regardless of what the people there want. It’s all a big fuck you to the very people who in the main have put all those capitalist millions in their pockets.

    Seventy years ago they would have been driven out of town. Today they get a mention on here.

    Dan Hoolihan says:

    Why not unite the entire world under one flag using this logic?One world government seems to be the inexorable conclusion it seems.

    Eddie Lizzard is one fucking ugly bloke
    who dresses as an even uglier woman in the hope of turning more men gay !

Dan Hodges on Labour unity

“We’ve heard a lot over the past few years about how Miliband has united Labour. But he has not united Labour. He has pacified Labour. He has placed it into a medically induced coma following the trauma of the party’s 2010 defeat.”
