Knowing Me Alan Partridge, Knowing You Nick Clegg

It does not get any easier for the Deputy Prime Minister. Nick Clegg is having a one-on-one right now with Steve Coogan. Apparently the coked-up starf**ker is back on his high horse and is seeking “assurances from Nick Clegg that he will continue to stand up to the power of newspaper editors and owners when the moment comes to decide” whether the press will be able to point out his hypocrisy.

Hypocrisy like waging a war against Murdoch and then taking his money as soon as he needed a channel for his new so-so Sky TV show.

Guido will be at the Hacked Off fringe meeting at 18.15 to ask him about it. Details of the meeting in Brighton at LibDem conference are here.

    Andrew Mitchell says:

    Is there a pleb in the house please ?

    Freddie Fraudster says:

    in any case, its just a bit of privatise overseas development aid, helping the poor farmers of Colombia to develop a good cash crop.

    Just like Thrasher did with all our billions for Indian spacecraft. At least Coogan spent his own cash

    Ones a Hunt and the other ACTS like he cares. Not sure which is which tho!

    DDC says:

    When you use the word “knowing” in the heading, I hope that’s not referring to its biblical meaning!

    DDC says:

    Love the heading on the Hacked Off link’s ad at the top – …night Sky!

    He’s not going to make a career out of being a crusader for truth is he?
    That’s a full time job and Shami has it pretty much sewn up.

    Stick to comedy Mr Coogan. You’ve already smashed the News of the World AND sort of ended the cosy political/media loop. You’ve done plenty of good.

    So get back to writing something funny. Because there has been an awfully long lean spell. I’m not complaining. you have been doing good. However….

    If you’re not careful you’ll end up like Mark Thomas playing to small rooms of differently gendered sequined man-womens at former crap polytechnics.
    Not a happy thought.

    Coogan’s being tapped to mend fences with students.

    Mr Ramsden says:

    I love him en femme CERTAINLY STEVE COOGAN. I was once in a Mayfair salon catering for trannies, fem doms, players, empathy heads and Madame said “He really let himself down last week. (while cross dressed) SO slutty.” Yes, behaving sexually at an orgy. Standards really are slipping.

    Coogan is an unfunny one-trick Hunt who thinks the world owes him a living.

      Sir William Waad says:

      Steve Coogan’s humour is too ‘laughing-at’ for me. I prefer ‘laughing-about” or “laughing-with”. His style is Humour of Embarrassment.

        Not as bad as Ricky Gervaise though.

        Fucking hell, that’s awful. It’s like those bits on X-Factor where they show the borderline retarded banging out ‘My Way’ while playing the ukelele.

        Cringe? I should say so.

    “Guido will be at the Hacked Off fringe meeting”

    They don’t need any plebs.

    I’m still struggling with a decent pleb gag for Letterman for Dave.

    The setting is Downton. Dave explains that the footmen in Downton are of a different social class but lord Grantham would never be so rude, as a gentleman, to tell them they are inferior in any way.

    “But..your chief of staff did?”

    “Indeed. That can only mean he isn’t a proper gentleman.”

    “Ok…And you’re gonna tell him that?”
    N . Because I am a proper gentleman.”

    OK OK…I know…{crumple crumple..}..its harder than it looks you now…

    We’ll have to go back to

    “Thats quite incorrect David.What Andy Mitchell actually said was nothing like what has been reported. He said “Is it true that the only reason you are a cop is that you failed the application for Dunkin’ Donuts? ” It was supposed to be a joke, you see. However that’s when they gave him, what I believe you term in this great country, a good five-oh ‘ing?” {smug about growth..fuck off out of there..I begged him not to do the bloody show…begged him to send Sam}

      Baldy says:

      Call-Me-Dave: “Oh the ‘pleb’ business was only a faux pas Mr Letterman.”

      Letterman: “How do you mean? Give us an example for Americans who aren’t really au fait with French.”

      Call-Me-Dave: “Well when I was in the Whitehouse garden with the First Lady I hurt my hand on a rose, so when she later asked ‘How’s the prick’ and I said ‘Still throbbing’ and the President said ‘bastard’ and kicked me in the balls – well that’s an example of a faux pas.”

    I don't need no doctor says:

    Clamity Coogan.

    Hypocrisy says:

    What a bunch of hypocrites.


  20. 50
    A Pleb who is getting annoyed says:

    So non means tested benefits to rich pensioners some of whom may be living abroad are to be stopped are they ?

    Well I thought this was part of the ” low hanging fruit ” which was cut back at the beginning of this Coalition Government to get the country up and running again .

    What exactly has been going on over the last two years and what exactly has been achieved ?

Tony Blair threatens Ed:

“If you had a strong political lead that was combining the politics of aspiration with the politics of compassion, I still think that’s where you could get a substantial majority…  If I ever do an interview on [the state of the Labour Party], it will have to be at length…”

Left on Left says:

The lefties are attacking because the panellist is a millionaire and lives in a London home worth upwards of two million. Someone had best tell them he’s called Ed Miliband.
