…but now I think he’s a cunt.
After many years of enjoying him on TV, I first started getting irritated by him when I started on Twitter.
I followed him.
His tweets seemed self-obsessed, overly self-indulgent and not half as witty as he thought they were.
So, I unfollowed him.
Now he’s made a pronouncement on the MPs’ expenses row saying that:
It’s not that important, it really isn’t.
Easy for him to say when his income and lifestyle must easily be on a par with the most prosperous of the fiddling cunts who call themselves our representatives.
He also goes on to slag off journalists for no good reason and then dismisses the expenses row as a ‘made up frenzy’.
Now, this blog entry is not intended to deny Fry of any recognition of the hard work he’s invested in his career but to show how utterly out of touch with the rest of the electorate he must be.
So, sorry, Stephen, but the whole matter of MPs’ expenses and the manner in which the system has been abused is important and may represent a watershed in British politics which touches the lives of most of the people to whom you owe your fame and fortune.
In brief – fuck off, Fry, you smug cunt.
