The Intelligence² Debate – Stephen Fry (Unedited)


My respect for Mr  Fry knows no bounds, as I love his writing, his comedy,  his documentaries, and QI is undoubtedly the funniest of all those fukkin awful celebrity quizzes that TV has been infected with of late


This, however, puts him in a different category altogether … a truly fine human being


This debate on whether the Catholic Church is a force for good is astonishing in many senses … Christopher Hitchens attacks like a bulldog and enumerates a litany of the church’s outrageous crimes from the past up to the present, in a highly vociferous, but highly  unentertaining, manner


Archbishop Nicebutdim is an embarrassment in an intellectual debate of this weight … Who the fukk chose him?


Ann Widdecombe leaves me speechless in astonishment … I’ve never been a fan of the MP’s we have in this country, but this woman’s level of inarticulate, hysterical blather makes me cringe to think that she actually held a Cabinet position at one time … a fukkin moron!!


Her own argument is illogical, innacurate, and avoids all the major issues posed


Watch the whole debate if you’ve got time … or simply marvel at the eloquence, passion, and restraint of a highly moral man … Stephen Fry


I’ve never ever voted or fancied trying gay sex, but if I did, Fry would be in with a chance … on both counts

HIDDEN GLASGOW


Semi-regularly, I drop in for a wee visit, to the Hidden Glasgow Forum, whose topics range from Old Glasgow-New Glasgow photo comparisons, which are great and sometimes surprising, to debates over the biggest daftness imaginable

http://www.hiddenglasgow.com/forums/viewforum.php?f=3

Here’s a memorable interchange that I spotted, for example


Re: Station Cafe

Used to get chips from the said Station Cafe, before getting the 41 bus home to Barlanark in the 70′s … stopped going there when the Evening Times printed a story about someone finding a deep fried fag in their chips

That was a bit hasty …

You could’ve given them the benefit of the doubt

My Fellow Blogger, Muso-Moothymaestro, and Pet-Worrier, Big Rab

http://bigrab.wordpress.com/

has once again perspired, conspired, and inspired me to add more to this blog by showing me, by his fine example, just how interesting and positive a blog can be, and how it can help to provide a relative antidote to the ever-negative, fear-inducing, paranoiac fantasists who produce and distribute our Daily Media


Or, to put it more simply, for the terminally thick:


After watching The News, and being demoralised, and then having your intelligence insulted by the pap that is Big Brother ….

It fair cheers ye up


Also, Rab’s latest postings introduced me to another cracking good blog

http://michaelgreenwell.wordpress.com/


A really interesting and thoughtful collection of positivity that I can highly recommend


Another fine blog ye got me inty, Rab


Rab has also featured one of my wee poem videos. SEE POLITIX … Which made me think about doing the same

SEE POLITIX … A poem that I wrote some 200 years ago, and is, unfortunately, still quite relevant

I did the graffix and the wee vid last year, 2008, in hotel rooms while away gigging

Now if you thought that the £100,000 wedding that I featured earlier was scarey madness then check out this over the top first communion outfit from Ireland
