Come Backs More Absurd

Of course there have been come backs more absurd and embarrassing…well Frank Bough is the only one I can think of .Like Mandy, Bough had a 'colourful' private life which ,in his case, involved taking cocaine and wearing lingerie at sex parties which almost ended his career . Exquisite details that emerged included the image of him parading around in stockings and frilly knickers being told how "pretty" he was .He did briefly return to present ITV's coverage of the 1991 Rugby World Cup, it was painful to behold . (He subsequently made headlines after being found in an S&M brothel in 1992.)
With Mandy it will much the same . I remember watching Bough and the miserable embarrassment of rugby players as they were obliged to sit next to him. Mandy is proven liar , fraud , and should he have anything to say the only possible response is …well , yes but you are a lying crook can I go now .

PS I had a look for a picture of aman in knickers by way of humour ..yeeeesh, Bough was clearly not alone in his peculiar predelictions.

Perhaps Mandy should be solicited by Cameron, he seems an ideal fit for his sort of wet conservatism.

Y'know the Stephen Milligan sort.

Gordon Brown at the podium, introduced by Sarah, making a successful job saving,crowd calming vote shoring speech to conference.

Just before the cameras cut, you can see him turn to Peter and say

"I'm wearing my wife's knickers.."

i can't seem to understand the fascination some men have with wanting to wear women's knickers...and then to have it publicly noted...makes no sense to me...there have been times i have wore a pair of boxers (some situations have called for it) but it wasn't something i thought as sexually driven (well, not self sexually satisfying...well) or something i wanted posted in a photo on the internet...

David Kelly will haunt him in his dreams in hell.

I once met Mandy on a tube train to Heathrow I said "Hello Peter how are you?" and we chatted for about five minutes even though he had no idea who I was and I had never met him before.. I remember thinking how clean shaven he was...

Newmania said...

OM- Thanks but the glorious tradition of Conservatism has no need of a preening twerp like that


Nice work BQ

Daisy ? I `m not really ina position to comment

You have a gift for detail Mutley

Eew.

NM, I'm a bit concerned about which 'glorious tradition' you are referring to because the Conservatives have two, one not nearly so glorious as the other.

Which one are you for?

I thought Frank Bough relaunched as a sort of pervert parody.

I don't believe that today's equivalent would have had his career ended if the same happened now such is the modern Zeitgiest.

Newmania said...

OM- I think I am a sort of One Nation Conservative with Doses of Scepticism. Naturally more Libertarian and market friendly than the left but far less so than right bloggers usually are.

There are far more than two traditions actually and if I were to sum it up it is the the man as against the machine of Marxist derived solutions .

Not sure about that EK...there is a limit

oldmania said...

NM, I was referring to the two different voting traditions - the one which wins convincingly and the other which loses ignominiously.

Which side you are on is open to question, nevertheless it seems it is possible to winkle a bit of sense out of you when you reign yourself in, so I'll have to give you the benefit of the doubt - for now.

Well take transgenderism for one thing.

I worked with a chap at Eurostar called Collin. He was the ugliest, tallest, butchest bloke ... We used to call him Mr Blobby.

He moved to Virgin at Euston where I last spoke to him ...

... dressed in full woman driver's uniform with scarf and high heels and seamed stockings. Now called Rachell Ventura.

His career is now bullet proofed.

I'm thinking of doing the same.

Daisy said...

stockings are not all they are made out to be EK...think twice...

Philipa said...

They are a bit draughty and no mistake. Plus the suspender fasteners show through your skirt when you sit down, advertising to everyone you arewearing stockings and, in the heads of most men, therefore 'up for it'.

but on you I think they'd look very fetching, Kev. I can't wait to see you in a skirt. What's it going to be then - Loretta? Katrina?

Newmania said...

OM You are confused and need rest

Don`t do it EK!!!

DO DO IT PHILLIPA

EK.. It used to be a way of getting out of things aka corporal clinger in Mash.

Now, as you say, it can be a job saver/ promotional vehicle.

If only I could find an Iranian cross dressing Jewish assistant, preferably someone also looking to have a sex change at some point and become a gay single parent of adopted special needs children, I could tick all my diversity boxes and then be free just to employ anyone who seems competent for the next few years.
