Has Stephen been snoozing for the last 8 months? What a crock of sycophantic shite.

He doesn’t get many hours outside of his coffin in the summer months.

Funny he should mention Thatcher and her speeches. The way she talked in 1975 was completely transformed when she became Prime Minister, yet the Ledge is, if anything, even worse now than previous. He's incapable of saying a single sentence without stuttering, stumbling or repeating himself yet for some reason the Tory PR machine has failed to do anything about it .

Once upon a time the parties employed voice coaches (Thatcher had elocution).

Ashworth certainly needs one.

That would involve Alex having to put some work in and apply himself to something. Not going to happen, is it?

But that's the persona he seeks to curate.

Just substitute elocution lessons for IT lessons, I'm sure that would get de Piffles attention

At one time we at the Gifted and Talented Unit were considering funding elocution training for exceptionally intelligent working-class kids. It can make a serious difference.

As said before, the main thing separating the likes of Hopkins and Littlejohn from winos in the park is a rather larger vocabulary.

As George Bernard Shaw famously said, it takes an Englishman only to open his mouth for another Englishman to despise him.

I wonder how much that's an evolutionary defence mechanism.
One look at Rees Mogg in his Monopoly Man cosplay and my hackles are up.
Maybe not as irrational as it sounds, considering that his types sent my types to die by the thousands in no-man's land.

They're killing us again through defunding welfare and monetizing the Covid crisis.
That's a little recent to generate an evolved response.
