There have been many revelations in recent weeks about the conduct of the now-deceased presenter of Top Of The Pops, Jimmy Savile. He was a “patron” at Stoke Mandeville Hospital, and sexually abused numerous vulnerable young girls, like in the paralysis ward. He was absolutely vile. I heard Nick Clegg, the deputy (pronounced: ineffectual) prime minister, say this morning on Shelagh Fogarty’s show “how did nobody know about this? How was this kept hidden?” Well, here is our Christopher Morris, the sharpest and most honest satirist of our time, just calling it precisely at the time of Savile’s death in 2011. It was there if you wanted to see it, Nick Clegg.
I love Jon Stewart, cause he is electable, but Christopher Morris is Jon Stewart with a fucking Stanley knife.
