I think it's a reference to the profoundly annoying "Ooohhh Jeremy Corbyn" chant. The witty scribe is pretending that "Ooohhh" is in fact his actual first name! What yucks! Tis as well Wilde is dead, such competition could drive him to desperate measures.

Politicians! Aintchasickovem? They're so bloody uptight and self-important, except when they're not. Then they're playing silly buggers. And what are they doing playing on their phones? They should be keeping constituents informed, not tweeting! That's their problem, you see. Out of touch. Until they're fucking in touch, the bastards!

Yay! It's Littlejohn's Komedy Kavalkade as he reimagines a church service for leaving the EU as, surprise surprise, a fairground barker doing "Roll up, roll up".

Apparently the EU invented wind turbines, and peace in Europe is worth "Bugger all". At least to us Brits.

Then a bit on Minder (with a bit of "look at me, I'm a real man's man eating bacon and that") with another blow by blow retelling of an episode (actually just one scene) which he considers comedy gold.

Then a bit on a Scottish MP, which is, I'm not joking, "He looks like a pooftah!". Seriously. That's all he has to say.

Not for the first time, I couldn’t help thinking here was another example of life imitating Minder, in particular an episode starring the late Mike Read, rerun on ITV4 the other night.
It was actually on in the morning and then late afternoon, although I suppose at least one of those would have been at night in Florida.

And j think he's confusing Mike "Runarrahnd!" Reid with Mike "I'm not playing 'Relax', here's a racist calypso instead" Read.

Or could be lazy subbing.

Something for the weekend, Sir? (all on the NHS!)... RICHARD LITTLEJOHN on handing out free condoms to the over-60s

SYB comments as you'd expect. Although the moderator let this one through by mistake.

There have been reports of an increase in sexually transmitted diseases amongst the elderly. If the use of condoms leads to a decrease, there will be a saving to the NHS. So,whilst the scheme might be helpful in providing a theme for Lillejohn to try and be amusing, there is sense in it.

The only context in which "clap" and "Littlejohn" belong in a sentence in a just universe.

It's odd, that these small c conservative types, for all their chat of personal responsibility, thrift and careful planning, wouldn't know it if it smacked them in the cock.

It's all about blaming others for a) their own personal failings, and b) begrudging anything that doesn't benefit themselves personally now.

If you turned 80 today, you'd have been a teenager at the height of rock and roll.

I know it's a bit of a myth, but the maiden aunts and old dears whose kids would never have been into THAT sort of thing, if they ever existed, are drying up.

Paedoes and the importance of the rule of law and presumption of innocence.

Sure he's hailed the court of public opinion and said "no smoke without fire" a few times.

RL isn't a noted civil liberties campaigner prepared to challenge the powerful to follow the rule of law. Especially when its unpopular defendants who he usually apportions with the blame (the latest being Begum who should face the full force of Javid's imaginary judicial powers without a trial).

At one stage he was gloating about the "perp walk", when it was mean bankers getting their collars felt. Why can't we do this over here, he asked. Gloat in their obvious guilt prior to trial. Then it was dawn raids on hacks, and suddenly it was a Bad Thing.
