A double portion of Pie

He gives a farewell to the outgoing Conservatives.

It was left ambiguous as to whether comedian Tom Walker was retiring his character as well.

And in this segment aimed at Americans, he summarizes the years of Tory rule and tells us what to expect in the coming years from the incoming Labour government and its leader Keir Starmer.

    “It was left ambiguous as to whether comedian Tom Walker was retiring his character as well killing off an extremely lucrative revenue stream for no particularly good reason”

    I know what I’d do if I were him.

    (Aside: it’s apparent that he’s not well liked in the standup comedy world. He seems a decent enough bloke and it obviously helps that I pretty much agree with his politics, but hard-working comics seem not to like the fact that he parlayed a few Youtube videos initially financed by Russia Today into a sellout profitable run at the Edinburgh festival, when much more established acts were still hustling for audiences and making a massive loss. He also had a very successful tour on the back of it, the sort of thing previously only possible for people off the telly. Jealousy is an ugly emotion.
    If you’re interested, I recommend listening to him being interviewed by Stuart Goldsmith on The Comedian’s Comedian podcast. Despite my not liking Goldsmith, I used to listen to this show a lot, because it was insightful and respectful of its interviewees…. until Walker, who was the victim of a disgraceful stitchup. Worth checking out.)

    I am looking forward to Bristish politics becoming cheerfully boring, sort of like in Scandinavian countries. Or maybe Canada.
    (I am aware of serious problems in Canada, but they are mostly ‘heritage’ stuff -- there are few who are actively working to ruin the country, or reintroduce Roman numerals as standard, or make flat-Earth geology compulsory in schools)
