Itâ€™s always an entertaining edition of Question Time when our Bozza is on the panel, and yesterdayâ€™s show was no exception. Not only was it (as ever) liberally sprinkled with lovely Boris witticisms, but it was made particularly watchable by Carol Vorderman looking like sheâ€™d had a few too many gin and tonics before the recording.
The ex Countdown star was scarily anti-politics, claiming at one point that Westminster were â€œgetting their knickers in a hypocritical twist,â€? whilst pointing like a frightening and wizened old lady. Either sheâ€™d had a really bad journey to the venue, or someone had permed her hair too tightly as I donâ€™t remember her being that grumpy with old Twice Nightly on Channel 4. Indeed, I was actually quite shocked that loveable Carol off of detox and maths appeared to be about as liberal as Norman Tebbitt.
My particular favourite Boris phrase from QT was â€œbathe in the odour of sanctity…â€? although his repeated early barking of the word â€œrhubarbâ€? was an interesting fruit-based interjection.Â Bozza also confirmed that â€œall parties have taken money from non-domsâ€? and told fellow panellist Will Self that â€œof course you shouldnâ€™t pity politicians!â€? Apparently, election debates will also â€œelucidate the vacuity of the heart of Labourâ€?. Whatever that means…..
He was so excitable that at one point, Dimbo had to ask him to ‘learn how to restrain himself’ shortly before the host grumbled that Bozza’s ‘exuberance was exhausting’.Â Â Carol didn’t understand either of those words, mind – they both have more than nine letters….
