National treasures...who shouldn't be


Recommended Posts

Stephen Fry

Yes he's witty, to a point, he's also 'erudite' etc,,,I suspect he's probably not a bad bloke.

But I just read his autobiography - he has no real depth, seriously, he admits it himself to be fair. He doesn't really think aboiut things just has a photographic memory and is a walking Theasauras, all clever words and no thought. He only got a 2.1 FFS. His acting is limited, although he plays that role well and his writing is b+ at best

I'm going to side with Julie Burchill, he's a thick person's idea of a clever person.

Tony Benn - would have put most of us in gulags and our economy in the stone Age, described Mao Se Tung "as the greatest person of the 20th Century" and was probably the individual most responsible for the rise of thatcherism....yet, he's a cuddly old tea drinking democrat nowadays.

Mr Bean cancels out Blackadder.

Johnny English cancels out Not the Nine O'Clock News.

I fear the net result is firmly in the red.

    • Leon is super-helpful and very easy to deal with. Called him first thing on Saturday morning and he was here within a few hours. Quickly identified the problem, sorted it, didn’t charge me for a part either. I really recommend him. 
    • When I watch the clouds from my window they quite often appear like very slow-moving lines of vehicles on a multi-lane highway, gradually edging forward. So I was rather doubtful when I just now saw them creep forward a very small amount, pause a short while, and then make a small reverse, more or less back to the point they'd advanced from.  Another pause, and then the same repeated.  And again and again.   More perhaps like a small moored boat, being blown by the wind.  I don't at this moment remember seeing anything quite like that before, at least for it to seem so memorable, though possibly i have, and forgotten. I doubt it's peculiar to Dulwich, but Dulwich is where I happen to be, and it is nature.  So hello clouds.
