A Right B'stard

Remaining with the subject of politics, I've found a clip from the 'new' New Statesman in which our favourite politician of the 1980's - no not Norman Tebbit - Alan B'stard, played by actor Rik Mayall, crosses the floor of the House and joins the New Labour hierarchy.

Strangely enough, I found myself sharing the same train with Mayall's "Young Ones" co-star, Nigel Planer the other week. Nigel appears to live in or around Herne Bay these days and perhaps it shows my age that I seemed to be the only person in the carriage to instantly recognise him.
