Amusement

I have mentioned previously that I find Frankie Boyle tremendously amusing. Tonight's gem finished off Mock The Week and was a response to "something that would change the atmosphere at a dinner party."
"There is a vegetarian option: you can fuck off."

Although I also enjoyed Hugh Dennis's...
"Well, isn't this nice? I say, let's all raise a glass... TO ZE FUHRER!"

Well, I laughed...

I liked his response to "something that you wouldn't hear in the Queen's speech".

I've had a few medical problems... I'm now so old, my pussy is haunted.

Are there any vegetarians left?...

Thought they starved themselves to death after the genetically modified crop debarcle...

Yep, the Queen's speech came out with some classic lines.

Andy Parsons is a scream.

I thought Russell Howard going on about elves was a waste of oxygen last week.

MTW appears a superior format than HIGNFY since the former has shallowed out and lost alot of its satirical edge.

I liked Hugh Dennis's adaptation of the Fireman Song from Trumpton on The Now Show Last Week:

"Jew, Jew, Muslim, Hindu, Traveller, Lesbian and Gay"

Brilliant.

At least the show is not afraid to take the piss of out Gordon Brown, many shows are still hesitant. I believe the first show to do so was Graham Norton's last year, I believe I blogged about it at the time.

I laughed so hard at that Frankie Boyle comment last night. Pure genius. Meat all the way!

Best Franky Boyle line was his response to "tag lines you wont see on films" (or something like that):

"No Mr. Bond; the only thing you'll be fighting in the coming years...is HIV".

I nearly fell off my chair.

Apologia

Your humble Devil apologises for his lack of posting: it has become increasingly difficult to actually put quill to vellum, as it were.

It's not purely that the political situation is rather uninspiring, it is also that I have become very much out of the habit of writing (about politics, at least). As such, every time that I fire up the blogging screen, I feel an incredible weariness.

I asked Pete to blog here because I thought that contemplating the actual mechanics of leaving the EU was important: I wanted to know, as much as anything. My reasons for voting Leave are actually very similar to Pete's, i.e. the rebooting of democracy and power structures in this country: however, he has a knowledge of the intricacies of the technical aspects that is beyond mine and I thought these worth setting down, here, for the record.

I shall try to post a little more frequently going forward. But, please, be warned that the reasons for eschewing this format haven't really gone away. My…

Gove's legacy?

Michael Gove has, quite honourably, said that it was right for Theresa may to sack him as a minister...
"I had six years when I was a government minister. I had a chance to make a difference - I hope that I did."The reforms that Michael Gove made in his time as Education Secretary will come to be seen as the most significant improvements to the British education system since the late 1800s—particularly in the introduction of Free Schools.

Gove made a difference—and his contribution should never be forgotten.
