Should join me in the battle to go back in time and replace the current Phil Jupitus with him-back-when-he-was-funny, get Mark Lamarr and Bill Bailey back, kick Simon Amstell in the pants and have a panel consisting of Amanda Palmer, Ricky Wilson, Guy Garvey and Ana Matronic. Then all but Phil and Bill can get nekkid.

Except when he is wearing one of those ridiculous cowboy shirts. He can take those off and I will burn them for him.

Rich Hall on a team with Boris Johnson would be good. I'd prefer Boris to keep his clothes on though, since I suspect he is pink and white-blonde everywhere.

That's Oxbridge for you. Absolutely right! He's become a right pompous establishment puppet. {Kenny shakes head in disbelief}

The other corporate buffoon, not Oxbridge though, is Ben Elton. Back in the 80's you'd find him on any "subversive" Channel 4 show, spouting leftie stand-up humour. Now, as this Wiki quote testifies:

Quote
"Ben Elton. Do you know this guy? He started out as an "alternative" comedian, railing against Thatcherism and the like, and now earns a fortune writing the librettos for truly awful West End musicals. I mean, his name has become a byword for shameless hackery. He's the biggest sell-out of his generation..."

Oh, kids and kiddesses, you can have your thread back in a minute, ok?

I used to need to have the subtitles on for Ben Elton, back when he was called Motormouth.

A while ago I saw Griff Rhys Jones with Dara O'Brien and that hairy guy (3 men and a boat) and he reminded me of Victor Mildrew. An annoying moaning old git.

Rory McGrath, the hairy one.

Yeah, that's what they've become. It's the Oxbridge You-scratch-my-back-and-I'll-scratch-yours syndrome and the BBC is full of them. It's a marvelous conceit. You only have to pitch half an idea to get your personal projects financed by the licence fee payer. Read Jones' autobiography and you find he spent most of his childhood messing about on boats. Lo and behold, next thing you know is he's messing about on his own personal yacht, with two chums, under the guise of "edu-tainment". Mortgage and probably an expensive yacht refit paid for.

It happens all over. Jamie Bleeding Oliver? You know, him of the "Every time I need to fund a new project I make a telly show". His mate, Jimmy, of Jimmy's farm? Jimmy wants to give up his job and run a farm. "Ooooh, that's a bit risky, mate. You know, to provide an income, why don't you make a telly show! I've got contacts! Pucka!"

I'm sick of the whole "reality" deal. It's just lining the same old pockets doing the same old things. You know, until I'm fabulously rich and famous, I'm going to make this my band wagon moan. Mind you, my house needs a major overhaul. It would make for fantastic viewing...
