Some good news to start the day

A tweet from Marcus Brigstocke this morning:

Maybe he’ll have to move into that massive “solar-powered” motorhome he’s got parked outside.

Update. Is it a leak, or was his roof hacked by Russians? Either way, I hope it didn’t cause him to miss an appearance by his favourite politician on the Andrew Marr Show today.

Update 2. Rod Liddle has some thoughts on Brigstocke in his Sunday Times column today. Hat tip to George R, who has posted the relevant segment in the comments.

    Rod Liddle has:-

    “Marcus speaks, Auntie melts

    “Order your stocks of sun cream — next year’s going to be a scorcher. We know this because Marcus Brigstocke told us on the BBC’s Question Time. The world’s getting hotter and next year is going to be the hottest yet, he said. Marcus is better known as being one of those soft-left, public-school-educated comedians beloved by the BBC who has never, ever, said anything remotely funny in his life. But he has also been flown to the North Pole to comfort the poor Inuit and check the blood temperature of polar bears before rushing back to present another breathtakingly brilliant series of I’ve Never Seen Star Wars, so he must know what he’s talking about.
    Several Inuit welfare organisations and polar bear representatives have pleaded that Marcus be allowed to live permanently at the North Pole, where he could entertain the local seals with his comedy routines and estimate how quickly the ice is melting. As a public service broadcaster, should not the BBC agree to this request? ”

    That’s made my morning!
    The Marr interview with Caroline Lucas wasn’t as much fun though. Just one question, asked reluctantly (“I must ask you about the big row at the moment”), about the dodgy doings in East Anglia – and that was it. No pressing whatsoever. A very soft interview. (As was the Doogie Alexander one later).

    Will somebody please explain Marcus Brigstocke to me because I’m clearly not getting it.

    I can just about see how some people can find some of those other non-comedians like Jo Brand and Helen Lederer funnyish plus I enjoy seeing the totally unfunny Ruby Wax mentally deteriorate in front of my eyes but Marcus Brigstocke?  Can anyone produce one funny thing he has ever said?

    Plus he’s obviously a posh boy so they can’t even patronise him like the do Julie Birchill.

    What is he for?

    I resent the use of the words “comedian” and “Marcus Brigstocke” being used in the same sentance.

    Perhaps we should all wend our way down to Brigstocke Towers with an array of nails, screws and power tools and, er,  ‘help repair’ it for him?

    Arrogant. Unfunny. Tosser.

    The BBC must have it’s own terminal in snowy Northern climes just to accommodate the number of staff and guests that need to go up and down, up and down, up and down….

    But, but… it’s all about the awareness.

    If ‘man’ is indeed contributing to GW, then I could lay most of it at some pretty specific, hypocritical doors.

    They may be just be poor at comedy, but as to irony….
