In honour of John Cleese...

Today's news about Change UK losing six of its 11 members calls for a Monty Python Life of Gavin sketch:
HEIDI: Listen. If you wanted to join the The Independent Group you'd have to really hate the Brexiteers.
GAVIN: I do!
HEIDI: Oh, yeah? How much?
GAVIN: A lot!
HEIDI: Right. You're in. Listen. The only people we hate more than the Brexiteers are the effing Change UK.
MIKE: Yeah...
ANNA: (Hic) Splitters.
MIKE: Splitters...
SARAH: And Change Now.
MIKE: Yeah. Oh, yeah. Splitters. Splitters...
ANNA: (Hic) And the Tiggers' Front of Change UK.
MIKE.: Yeah. Splitters. Splitters...
HEIDI: What?
CHRIS: The Tiggers' Front of Change UK. Splitters.
HEIDI: We're The Tiggers' Front of Change UK!
LUCIANA: Oh, I thought we were The Independent Group.
HEIDI: The Independent Group! C-huh.
JOAN: Whatever happened to the Chuka Umunna Independent Change UK Now Group?
CHUKA: I'm over here.
Of course, all I really care about here is where ex-BBC face Gavin Esler ends up? I'm guessing in either the Lib Dems or acting as independent peer Jenny Tonge's butler. 


  1. This party is no more, it is a deceased party...it has gone to meet its maker...it has thrown off this mortal coil...it's merged with the Lib Dems like they all do in the end...

  2. While we are on the subject of "in honour of John Cleese"...I would like to institute the "Monkeyish Roll of Honour". The Truth Tellers first class award goes to:

    1. John Cleese.

    2. Gerard Batten

    3. Morissey

    4. Er that's it.

    5. Oh yeah, just remembered: Lord Pearson gets one as well but that's about it.

    6. And Anne Marie Waters, she can have one...but that's definitely it.

    Truther Teller Second Order:

    1. Christopher Hitchens.

    2. Rod Liddle

    3. Katie Hopkins.

    That really is about it...no more. The rest are all cowards and placemen.

  3. Can J H-B have a gold star sticker?
