Well they certainly generated publicity by asking that cnut to contribute. Given his normal capacity for deceit you would have thought that whatever he thinks of Eric Liddell he could have picked a more relevant hero. Liddell was a fast runner and did sterling work whilst interned by the Japanese but heroic?
There are far more important and relevant people who have contributed Dame Vera Lynne for one.
How else does this tube get his name mentioned in the same place as greats like Dame Vera? He just wants to see his name in print, in publications that mention great people, whilst being nothing like the sort himself, in the vain hope that he might be remembered LONG, LONG into the future as being in some way associated.
Among the really wet heroes, and the idiots that picked them:
Jock Stirrup - Ceasar..... tw@t.
Brown - Eric Liddel from chariots of fire. really appropriate you cnut.
Blair - Ghandi. He never stops trying to piss me off.
It's as if these people just got involved to glorify themselves and picked off-the-peg heroes at random based on their population-sympathy index.
And the gooduns, unashamadely appropriate:
Dannat - Viscount Slim
Ross Kemp - The British Armed forces (he really loves us, don't he)
Cameron - Beharry VC. However wet you think Cameron is, atleast he knows who is appropriate as a hero in a h4h cookbook.
Interesting both Blair and Brown chose two men of high principles and values
They couldn't be further from the pair of them
Although on the plus side one died in prison (albeit a Japenese POW camp) and one was assasinated
So we can live in hope the follow in their heroe's footstep
I imagine their meals promise so much but deliver fukc all
Just knew someone would say that-curses,you beat me to it.Spot on,though! The irony of a man whose inveterate hatred of the military is widely known contributing ANYTHING in aid of a Forces charity sticks in the throat,though,which,perversely,is probably why some knighthood-chasing jobsworth advised him to do it.
