Cleese takes to Bath or RACIST PIE-THONN

From: William Gazy

Absolutely, I didn't think it needed saying. Lib Demmite he is as well! He has actively funded the pinkish political class and now moans at the world they've brought about.
The poor luvvy's down to his last £3.5million. DIDDUMS.
It will be interesting to see how the BBC handles its former star in the light of this. His remarks will be pored over at the Ministry of Truth. Poisoned umbrella tips at the ready. I suspect The Alimony Tour will now be a Channel Four broadcast.

Well said by Cleese but slightly ironic since arguably he and his chums helped along the death of respect started by Beyond the Fringe etc. A case of 'be careful what you wish for'?

'Cleese also spoke about the shift in British attitudes away from a "middle-class culture" and the emergence of a "yob culture".
He said: "There were disadvantages to the old culture, it was a bit stuffy and it was more sexist and more racist. But it was an educated and middle-class culture. Now it's a yob culture. The values are so strange."
He added that he preferred living in Bath to London because the capital no longer felt "English".
"London is no longer an English city which is why I love Bath," he said. "That's how they sold it for the Olympics, not as the capital of England but as the cosmopolitan city. I love being down in Bath because it feels like the England that I grew up in."

As P Hitchens said: 'Only the rich will be able to escape the consequences.'

Yob culture is, as the young people say, so yesterday's news. Bankers are yobs these days, IT support workers, supermarket middle management. It's nasty-little-cunt culture you want to watch now. Cleese probably gets steamed up at the thought of an oxblood Dr Marten kicking a Coca-Cola can down across the road, still thinks it's 1974 and you can't go near Millwall on a Saturday. Funny guy, but always an arsehole. Word ver: instsali
