Mr Mogadon. He has the quiet, slightly sibilant voice of a vicar talking to a congregation of five in a backwater church.
Baz does have an unfortunately creepy manner, with a slightly effeminate edge, so that he comes across as a kind of cross between Norman Pace and Julian Clary. The scruffy Len McCluskey style beard (which could, I suppose, be a sort of fan-boy tribute to Jezza), doesn't help either. But the worst of him is his sheer incomprehensibility. He talks absolute bollocks nearly all the time, which often manifests itself in direct contradictions of official party policy (Baz famously described Starmer's six tests as "bollocks"), and he does it in such a pompous way that he sends a shiver up my spine like the sound of fingernails on a blackboard.
Every time he appears on screen I find my internal voice saying " Oh god, not fucking Barrie Gardiner again."
I'm completely bewildered as to why he keeps being put up as a spokesman.
