And so it becomes a choice between exiling a selfish arrogant professional loud mouth, and an arrogant loud mouth comedian. Now I know where my tick is going on Thursday, but for those who are confused by all of the rhetoric and need a sightly better method of choosing than tossing a coin, this doesn’t help. On one side, I’m finding it difficult to find a Katie Hopkins quote I agree with. Maybe her comments on children’s names – calling your girl ‘Chardonnay’ is surely cruel, especially as it’s inevitably going to be playground-shortened to ‘Chard’ – but even then, Hopkins real point was:
But at least she does, in her own vitriolic way, display some humour – more than O’Grady ever has. Paul O’Grady is one of the ‘I’m funny because I’m a scouser’ brigade, developed by Jimmy Tarbuck, cultivated by Stan Boardman, and sadly alive and well in John Bridges. Lily Savage is a second-rate Dame Edna, just as O’Grady is a second-rate Graham Norton. (Wow, that is bad). But, there’s one overriding factor when choosing between the Hopkins and O’Grady: O’Grady likes, cares for, and financially supports, our four-legged friends. It’s clear that he is passionate about dog welfare and that fact, in my opinion, should be enough for a floating voter to place a tick in the red box. Hope that’s helped.
