I am/was a prof so my opinion counts, on anything at all.
I like Janey Godley. She makes me laugh so she must be a good comedian too but she’s wrong on this.
Connolly was very funny at first but soon lost touch with us, started sounding a bit Kelvinside and then began to despise our smallness, our ‘pretendy wee parliament.’
Boyle is the sharpest tool in any box.
This is the man who, after the referendum, told a crowd, that he knew more than half of them were cnuts.
This is the man who, wondering how we might teach the Afghans about democracy, suggested that we should send a prince to shoot at them from a helicopter!
Boyle, a great comedian and a political scientist who can communicate.
Connolly, a once funny guy with big houses and a big three-wheeled motorcycle.
My best line ever?
After watching a grumpy course leader lambast 30 meeja students, all of them despite my warning, for all the faults you can imagine, just before I had to then lecture, I closed the door and turned to them. I said: ‘Easily the worst warm-up act I’ve ever had!’
Big laugh proved I could be funny if also a betrayer of a colleague. Unless they read this, they’ll never know.
