Izzard the Labour Lizzard

Like that persistent tranny who won’t leave you alone at a bar,* Eddie Izzard isn’t fooling anyone. The formerly frocked comedian has given his full-blown support to the “Yes to AV” Campaign, but his pick-up rate hasn’t been too good in the past. Izzard was last seen telling the country that Gordon had saved the world and that we should join the Euro.

But the joke isn’t funny any more. Labour insiders suggest that Izzard is only sucking up to Miliband to take MEP Claude Moraes’ position on the London Labour List for the European Elections. He has been attached to Red Ed’s hip at virtually every Labour Party event since Miliband took over.

Claude is said to be aware Izzard is after his job and is not a happy bunny…

UPDATE : A few minutes after this was posted this popped up:

*Years ago when Guido lived in London’s East End, Izzard used to frequent his local boozer. Eddie would hold court in a cocktail dress to admiring young acolytes. The regulars thought he was a twat.

UPDATE II : Apparently Boulton just put this to Izzard and he confirmed he was interested “in 2020”. Yeah right…

Jeremy Corbyn on Big Ben Bong Ban

“… if we have to miss Big Ben in reality for a while so that work can be done, well, that’s something we have to go through. It’s not a national disaster or catastrophe.”
