WATCH: Gove’s Priestly Eastleigh Feast

When he hasn’t been tweeting about, er, “suck jobs”, Michael Fabricant has been ribbing Michael Gove about his previous career down in Eastleigh today. Gove played a priest in 1995 comedy A Feast At Midnight. Blair used to be an actor too…

    In times gone by, acting used to be considered a dubious career path…why might that have been so?

      Clegg was an actor as well and Cameron a PR man.

      We *should* all accept the obvious, namely that we live in a one-party Libertarian (Trotskyite) state which does “expectation management”
      Hollywood style and where most people only ever listen to celebrities because the cult of disordered personality is revered second only to money. We worship performers who con for a living. We find fault with people who are NOT good pretenders (not good actors or “role-players”).

      What a strange world we live in!

            An interesting insight into the mind of Schrödinger’s cat who apparently is concerned about how many followers he might have.

            I suspect that he does not have any followers, but he does not seem to understand that people follow ignorant people in order to see what stupid comment that might make next – Owen Jones and John Prescott are perhaps good examples of this.

            If Schrödinger’s cat did not write the 7:48 comment, then perhaps he should have done becasue it was very accurate.

            I suspect he is trolling as himself to try and gain attention.

        I do support what she is doing but like to point out in most of the developing world eggs, cheese, chicken, beacon, etc are luxuries. People cannot afford to have these almost every day, even middle classes cannot afford to eat like this.

        Poverty is relative and in this country £18 a week for food is poverty. Its always better to promote jobs as its the only way to reduce poverty.

          £18 a week is adequate for ingredients for a diet made up of basic food.

          Of course, if you are homeless and can’t therefore cook raw offal, swedes and potatoes, you’d need about £100+ to maintain a healthy-ish diet eating in cafes and the like, as your calorific needs will be much higher than many other people’s simply staving off hypothermia and/or being ‘moved on’.

            Since then, society has been dumbed down, no doubt about it. Anyone under a certain age has no basis for comparison, sorry, but that is a fact.

            The remarks of Diddley are well understood. I may even have thought great tits myself, to be brutally honest. But I would not have voiced it in those circumstances, neither would it have affected my judgment on the issue of guilt.

            Part of the problem is that the educated middle-class dodge jury service by being ‘too busy’, ‘off sick’, ‘abroad’, ‘golf partner to Mr Justice Cocklecarrot’ or ‘indispensable at work’ whereas, for the claimant class, it’s an agreeable doss with a few quid in expenses.

            Possible solution: allow people etc. to nominate well in advance when they will do jury service and force them to stick to it.

          • Henry VII is often credited with founding the navy despite its prior existence. He did encourage shipbuilding and built a dry dock at Portsmouth which helps to support the view because of its relative permanence.

            Henry VIII built up the navy, having plundered the abbeys. Mary Rose took 600 mature oaks to build and many ships more were built by him.

            To be fair, I did not mention that he was one of the first environmentalists, a little known fact. Realising how Britain’s oak forests were being so drastically reduced, he organised replanting on a massive scale. The oak coppicing cycle is about three decades.

        The net debt rose from 2002 actually, once Bliar’s promise to stick with the Tory spending plans ended.

        Then Brown and Balls let rip. The net debt as a proportion of GDP rocketed…even though GDP was increasing. This was the creation of Brown’s client state. A state where we ended up with people earning £53k getting tax credits.

        It was also the start of Brown’s massive expansion of the public sector, money was pissed up against the wall, the Health Service saw no improvement in outcomes, money went into the pockets of the staff. 52% of our GDP was spent on the public sector

        By the time of the banking crash we were, economically, in a worse position than practically any other developed country which is why the £ was effectively devalued against other currencies by 25% – with the consequential hike in energy costs.

        In 2010, economists said that such was the damage done to the British economy, it would take until 2025 until we would see any meaningful recovery

    Actually Hitchens was talking the truth. The fact is the amry needs 18 year old kids because they will do things in combat veteran soldiers know is dangerous.

    Armies have always worked this way and the fact the cuunts in that studio didn’t get it proves the point.

    The Roman army used to put the newbs in the front and if you lived you got moved further back.

    On D-Day they KNEW most of the first wave of soldiers would die or be wounded, so they sent in the 18 year old kids who not having been in combat didn’t know what to expect whilst the older seasoned soldiers went in behind (they would have been far less willing to walk into a hail of machine gun bullets)

    That’s why armies use kids and young men in particular. Every 18 year old male thinks he’s invincible and Captain Scarlett.

    Once they’ve bee in combat many have had enough and some will want more, but what Hitchens said was factual.

    “Inexperienced troops are often preferable to veterans. For a direct frontal assault on an enemy position such as D-Day, men who have never seen what a bullet or land mine or exploding mortar round can do to a human body are preferable to men who have seen the carnage. Men in their late teens have a sense of invulnerability. Their zeal and daredevil attitude far outweigh their combat inexperience.”

“McVey told Grazia that she hasn’t married or had children because she ‘never found anyone to wind her biological clock’ … If I remember rightly, half the current Cabinet would have cheerfully ‘wound her clock’ if she’d given them a glimmer of a chance.”
