Where are the characters and the eccentrics?

#1
I don't know about you but I seem to recall that Britian produced a great number of eccentrics, i.e., Lord Thynn Marquess of Bath, Alan Clark MP, Alec Guinness.

It just seems we don't get so many any more, whats going wrong?
 
#2
I think a lot reside on this very site?

Boris is great and what is even better is so many people just don't get him, which makes it even better.

I love to see Dave of the people cringing when he's around him.

Michael Portillo is a bit of a character. I think also a screaming queen....
Yip... I'd bet he is. Saw him at a MMA night in Notts a couple of weeks ago, was sat right behind me. Kept my arrse cheeks tightly nipped... the man definitely has the gammorouche lips about him...

Just in case you didn't know. All gay men have gammorouche lips... tis a fact.
:D

Iraq and Afghanistan, mostly.

What about that crazy loon, Lord Whatisname from Bath. Or is he indeed Lord Bath, he`s a bit of a character.
Also, wasn`t there a documentary on Chanel 4 about some foul mouthed Lord or other carping on about this exact subject?
I`m sure there are others, but I do agree that most are indeed on this site.

Rockape, you're on about Lord Fulford? yeah he's the type. Personally I like eccentricity.

I seem to recall my old headmaster would regularly roll dice whilst telling us off and ordering us to make him cups of tea with 12 sugars!

mentalist.
