is doing a party broadcast for welsh labour. Oh the irony of using the phrase "if only the tories got on their bikes and found out that Britain isn't broken..."

    am I missing something? do you think he's unaware of the Tebbit quote?

    he's got a long standing interest in politics, I'm sure he knows what he's saying and is using it as a deliberate barb at one of the more memorable toryisms.

    Possibly not, but it was said as if he hadn't heard it. That wasn't the point, I was making the same point as you in a less obvious way perhaps. :wink:

    I think he speaks a lot of sense.

    Love his comedy, but not his politics. There are a lot of things to admire about him, but his political views aren't among them. Ditto his wardrobe.

    ah, I'm quite into Izzard and dabble in popular politics so I just assumed that he'd know the quote and its the sort of back referencing he does in his routines. Good on him for standing up and speaking for how he feels, although he does seem to have switched allegiances from liberal to labour. Maybe he just likes being with the most central party of the trio. :D

    Does he know about this?? :wink:

    Yes! :D
