Hi

I dont know about anyone else but I thought Jeremy Hunt's bell moment on friday was a classic comedy one and how lucky was he not to have belted someone in the eye with it?? Good to see them make us laugh for good reasons and has to be my favourite political laugh so far although once saw SArkozy defending a speech he did (claimed to be stone cold sober) and they said he was steaming drunk, it showed a clip and he was slurring, dribbling and swaying on his little soapbox that they used to elevate him to normal hieght like billyo!
Anyone want to share other political comedy moments?

    I thought James Naughtie's inadvertent spoonerism was a classic when he attempted to refer to 'Jeremy Hunt the Culture Secretary' :lol: . I notice that, ever since, broadcasters change it to 'The Culture Secretary, Jeremy Hunt.' :wink:

    John Redwood's glazed-yet-panic-stricken eyes when, as Secretary of State for Wales, he found himself having to attempt to mime the Welsh National Anthem.

    John Prescott decking an egg thrower.

    Michael Howard failing 12 times to answer the same Jeremy Paxman question.

    Oh no he'd have been better doing what some sports people do and just listen, head held high rather than mime! Prezza's egg moment forgot about that but good one!!!
    Paxo is a bugger so Howard did well not answering his q's...

    Just thought of good old Barack singing the blues n rythmn too....Great!

    Lol! There are many funny moments!

    I think Ed Milibands face is just priceless when he is being asked how he feels about so many people still mistaking him for his brother David. Unfortunatley I can't find a clip.

    But, check out this brilliant old lady who doesn't like the Tories much!



    Boris Johnson! (Need I say anymore? ...Oh, ok then) Lets clean up the streets of London! Yaaah! Wheres your Broom Boris? I couldn't help but think of a very low budget re-make of Braveheart or something the way that Boris was wielding that broom!



    And just to be sure... A Mexican Broom Wave!



    There are just loads of funny politic stuff!
    Life is just a ride. Up and down, round and around, thrills and chills, very brightly coloured and very loud. But don't ever be afraid, because it is just a ride.

    What about Neil Kinnock and his wife where they went down to the beach (during the Brighton 83 conference)for a photo opportunity and he ended up falling on his backside trying to avoid an incoming wave.

    That machine gun clip made me laugh :lol:

    E :D
