‘Chicken Theresa May’ Excerpt from Have I Got News For You

As I commented earlier on a piece by Cassetteboi taking the mick out of Tweezer, May has form when it comes to challenging Corbyn to debates. The last time she did so at the election last year, she ran away from him and said Amber Rudd instead.

This massive cowardice did not go unnoticed. Here’s a clip from Have I Got News For You in which Ian Hislop, Paul Merton, Victoria Coren-Mitchell and guests, including the priest, who used to be a member of the Communards way back when, talk about May.

They remark that it’s just been confirmed that she wouldn’t appear on Woman’s Hour either, sending someone else there instead. Victoria Coren quips in response to May’s comment that the Brexit negotiations will need a ‘bloody difficult woman’ that there is one already in Angela Merkel. There’s also a dig at the Fuhrage. May said that if Corbyn got in, he’d go ‘naked and alone into the debating room’. Coren states that so far this has only happened to a drunk Nigel Farage.

And then there’s a very good description of Tweezer. In response to May being called ‘chicken’ by the Mirror, Coren comments that you can get chicken Theresa at a restaurant near her. It’s thin-skinned, boneless and can’t be grilled. Oh yes, and another true word said in jest!

    that vicar is really cool I didn’t know he was part of the communards. Yhe last bit about the chicken Coren said (refuses to be grilled) is funnier. sorry Beastie!!!

    this whole situation though is very depressing, I just hope I can hang on in for if it gets better for all of us.

    I had a mental health assessment 3 months ago and I am still waiting to hear anything, to top it off I can barley walk I have No support anywhere around me and no family the social services won’t help me because I tried to sue them and now I have no hope of anything!!!!

    I am trying to think what have I done so wrong?!!!

      Thanks for the comment, Jo. As for your problems, you haven’t done anything wrong at all. It’s just that the government has run down services to such an extent that vulnerable people like you simply aren’t getting them.

      You just have to hang in there, and remember that you still are a very worthwhile person, with lots of friends like Ctesias and myself on this and Mike’s blog. Hope everything gets better for you soon!

        As you know from previous Posts Beastie have had some dealings with “govt bureaucracy”. Not looking forward to Xmas shall we say @ present.
        Always read your essays with interest.

      Thank you for your message Ctesias! You are really kind!! I am feeling a little better thank you!!!

      Thanks for reminding me of his name, Ctesias. I knew it was Richard something, but couldn’t remember what his surname was. Memory’s always the first to go. 🙂

Hope yr health’s progressing ok beastie, no thanks to our wondrous new Foreign Sec or “Lord’ Lansley I’ll warrant.
