Rebel without a pause

Director/ actor Steven Berkoff reports in the Spectator on this conversation between himself and David Cameron:

‘I have just directed the stage version of the famous movie On the Waterfront.'

‘Ah,’ he said. ‘I remember it well… and how good James Dean was.’

And no, it's not a mistake that anyone could make.

You will be glad to hear this is my final post on this site. Kerry I don't know what manners you were taught as a child, it seems none. You ignore people and make sarcastic remarks over some old film, you only reinforce what everyone already knows, you're desperate. Were you never taught that sarcasm is the lowest form of wit?

James Dean / Marlon Brando? Blue jeans, white t-shirts and bomber jackets? I can well imagine how one might mix them up.

Yes -

A typical piece of ignorance by the Heir To Blair - but, what DOES one expect of the New Political Class these days ?

Beats Blair going to see Jackie Milburn play when he was dead.

On the Waterfront is one of the most iconic films of all time. It's like saying Doris Day starred in Some Like It Hot just because she's got blonde hair.

Perhaps you can get one of your researchers to find out who did star in it? And why don't you seem to do any proper MPs work?

Jaffa cakes, Brando...

Proper MPs work?

What like arms dealing, city directorships, writing lucrative newspaper columns and going on HIGNFY?

I suspect Ms McCarthy would be rather out of her depth on each of these! No, just normal MP work...

Don't say I am, you are then, don't say I am, you are then.


Yes you guessed it, just a typical little banter from our Kelly. Mind you I suppose it's better than, Ur Ur Ur, I I, I am a good leader. Watch out for Harriet Gordy!

If Harriet Harman is the cream of the New Labour political class then the party and the country is done for.

Yeah. This country's got a one-way ticket to Palookaville ...
