Up, Up and… put back in prison…

There wasn’t much feedback on yesterday’s ‘blog, it received one ‘like’ – which made it about as popular as Rowan Atkinson’s sketch where he portrayed the Archbishop of Canterbury. Apparently his short skit drew complaints from 2,200 people. 

 

What an ars*hole. 

 

What was he trying to achieve by doing this offensive sketch?

 

Eh? It was for Comic Relief, a charity that this year raised over £75m for good causes. 

 

Nonetheless… he should still be ashamed of himself, for every person who complained Comic Relief only raised over £34,000. 

 

I wonder how the millions of people whose lives have been positively effected by Comic Relief would feel about 2,200 people complaining to Comic Relief about a comedian making a joke? 

 

Yeah that’s right… they probably couldn’t care less… 

 

Anyhow, it’s time to move on to today’s ‘blog, which isn’t even anything to do with Comic Relief, instead it’s to do with prisons – which hopefully is where Rowan Atkinson won’t end up, although I suppose you never know (apparently he was recently caught speeding in his yellow mini and asked his teddy bear to take his 3 points). 

 

Today’s ‘blog instead centres around 2 Canadian prisoners who successfully escaped prison and were then recaptured (so their escape wasn’t that successful) when a helicopter lowered itself down and the two escapees climbed up a rope ladder to their temporary haven.

 

As I said… the prisoners were recaptured… and the prison in question is apparently well known for problems with over-crowding thanks to the short-stay prisoners who inhabit it… that’s what the news reporter said anyway… shortly before he jumper over the prison fence in his hovercraft…

His career’s heading in One Direction…

There wasn’t much feedback on yesterday’s ‘blog. Actually these was no feedback at all, so I’m guessing everyone was just pleased to be alive after the asteroid missed the earth by 17,200 miles.

No doubt this great news meant that the thousands of WOWS ‘blog readers didn’t have the chance to show their appreciation of yesterday’s ‘blog (in case anyone is interested, we recorded the third WOWS podcast yesterday and then straight afterwards we interviewed a woman who looks after a pig and takes him for a walk on a lead – by the way, the pig was massive and was easily the biggest bore since the last series of The Only Way Is Essex started…

Anyhow, it’s time to crack on with today’s ‘blog which is about David Cameron who got fed up of hanging about with George Osborne, Nick Clegg, Michael Gove, Boris Johnson & Danny Alexander and he’s now appearing in One Direction’s video – he’s basically gone from hanging around 5 annoying men to hanging around with 5 annoying boys.

Cameron’s appearance in the One Direction video is because it’s Comic Relief and One Direction are singing the official Comic Relief song this year. One of the most recent offerings for Comic Relief was from Peter Kay and Matt Lucas (two people who can’t really sing), but this year they’ve gone to for One Direction (five people who can’t really sing).

David Cameron isn’t the first Politician to get involved in appearing on television programmes, Boris Johnson regularly appeared on Have I Got News For You; Michael Portillo presented a programme about the British railways (until he couldn’t afford it as the fares went up by 5% in the New Year – thanks a bunch National Rail) and Chris Huhne was a guest on Top Gear’s Star in a Reasonably Priced Car – although his laptime was credited to his wife…

That said David Cameron isn’t the first Prime Minister to appear on Comic Relief, 2 years ago Gordon Brown appeared and I’ve no idea what he did, presumably talk about ending ‘boom-and-bust’ or something – which to be fair he did… but now we just have bust…

Tony Blair also appeared on Comic Relief with Catherine Tate’s schoolgirl character Lauren… where she complained at him and he responded with her catchphrase ‘am I bovvered?’… it was a great comedy sketch, ‘Prime Minister, are you embarrassed that your decision to go to war in Iraqi has led to the death of thousands of innocent people?… “Am I bovvered”…
