Re: John Cleese doesn't like his hometown! by bIG bLOGGER on 24 July 2008 4:47pm
 
Liverpool was the nurturing ground for many merseybeat groups in the 60's,emphatically the Beatles. If Paul McCartney went on record as saying "Liverpool is pants", then there would be a storm of disapprobation from both L'pool residents AND Beatles' fans. Thus,Ringo should know better..he was born in a humble terrace house, but (like Cleese) now owns a grandiose big pad in Los Angeles. Perhaps going to live in Hollywood turns the minds of previously humble artists into zombies who abuse the power of free-speech.

The man is funny on screen/stage but he's an arse in 'real life'.

Yeah, and Daily Mail is "a fascist rag and news for the dead" (c)

Cheek! I read the Mail and don't count myself either as fascist (in fact I'm far-left) or dead - or at least I dont think so. No, I can't remember anybody saying 'This Spursfan is no more! She has ceased to be! She's expired and gone to meet her maker! She's a stiff! Bereft of life, she rests in peace!'.

My two best friends from school (who I've been best pals with for 47 years (omigod!!) can't believe that as a socialist I read the Daily Mail. However, I enjoy the paper and also its puzzles and competitions.

:)

MMM, mouths bigger for famous people? Athletes get that all the time.
Everything has a positive and negative, yin and yang psychological side.
What makes athletes for example competitive and hard driving on the field can make them aggressive @ the wrong times and terrible in interviews.
Sports Teams' PR people are worth every penny!!

spursfanseverywhere:I see nothing wrong with browsing (or grazing) the DAILY MAIL,a long-running middle-class Daily Newspaper.I get a lot of enjoyment from it,and it keeps me up-to-date as to what Mr.Cleese is up to.
I think that "kitsch" should withdraw her remark,which is clearly bound to cause offense,and apologise to all honest-working Daily Mail readers everywhere. (End of Sermon)

The Daily Mail only reported on what Cleese said. The man is, as we say around these parts, a sore arse.

How sad. I am afraid I cannot admire a man who goes like that about his mum and/or ex. I'm using the word "sad" in its very English meaning, which is much wider than a mere Russian equivalent; just *SAD*. Do I feel sorry for him? Oh yes!!! Still, I do find the whole affair *SAD* and so is the man himself. I read all the comments in Daily Mail and many of them sound sensible and sympathetic and I appreciate them. There is one particularly sensible (and a bit *sad*;-)))) which I'd like to quote here:

"What on earth does he think a 34 year old woman wants with him - at 68 years of age I can guarantee it isn't his body or his looks - could it possibly be his bank book."

:-(
