Secret Gammon

Laurence Fox, Fred Dibnah, Neil Oliver....

Thread to speculate on which public personality will be next to reveal themselves as an oppressed voice seeking a breath of fresh air.

Brian May isn’t right wing. He’s spoken out against Brexit.

But he’s more intelligent than most of them.

I didn't know that Neil Oliver was a purple-faced splutterer.

FleurDuMal - 25 Apr 2021 09:20:06 (#43 of 185)

I detest him. All that intense gazing into the camera is just so he can admire his reflection in the lens.

If there is a single person who encapsulates how vast a chasm there can be between self perception and reality 'tis he.

Mary Berry always looks as though she harbours secret, gammony desires.

Brain May remains stridently unapologetic about playing Sun City,.

Child-beater Berry kept her mouth shut during the Brexit debate for good reason, I suspect, Lippy.

TRaney - 25 Apr 2021 10:05:54 (#48 of 185)

Just her own children or does she roam the streets?

LippyPongstocking - 25 Apr 2021 10:06:46 (#49 of 185)

There's something of the Übermensch about Mary.

TommyDGNR8 - 25 Apr 2021 10:07:43 (#50 of 185)

Well, she's never admitted to driving a horse-drawn cage, but it wouldn't surprise me.

FleurDuMal - 25 Apr 2021 10:08:23 (#51 of 185)

Mary Berry always looks as though she harbours secret, gammony desires.

She’s unbearably smug.

I got a roasting on the Bake-Off thread back in the day for suggesting such a thing, BTW. Only time I've ever been at the bottom of a GUT/JTT pile-on. On the fucking Bake-Off thread.

FleurDuMal - 25 Apr 2021 10:11:52 (#53 of 185)

I think she’s sacrosanct on there. You can slag her off on the sleb thread - anyone’s fair game there.

LippyPongstocking - 25 Apr 2021 10:20:46 (#54 of 185)

Yes, no criticism of Saints Mary, Mel&Sue was countenanced on the BakeOff thread in ye olden BBC days, in spite of Mary's well-known love of the lash for errant children and Mel being one of the dullest charisma voids on the planet.

TRaney - 25 Apr 2021 10:23:30 (#55 of 185)

Oh I'd take Mel over Sue any day

Tenesmus - 25 Apr 2021 10:31:57 (#56 of 185)

<Raises eyebrow>

Has Freddie Flintoff come out as gammon yet? I feel fairly sure he is.

And what about Tess Daly? There's probably a lot of seething resentment under that plastic perma-smile.

browserbutton - 25 Apr 2021 10:39:00 (#58 of 185)

What about Sir Rowan Atkinson, with his mansions and big cars?

TRaney - 25 Apr 2021 10:42:57 (#59 of 185)

Tess shaping up as a thread favourite to make the leap

Breaking the gender bias too
