Is describing the likes of bungling billionaires like Bernie Ecclestone and Rupert Murdoch as ‘coffin dodgers’ or ‘codgers’ acceptable? Matthew Steeples says MOST DEFINITELY YES
Titty feeding twerp Tamara Ecclestone once charged at me as I sat minding my own business at the bar of a Pavilion Road, Chelsea restaurant enjoying a glass of vino. This modern-day Bet Lynch lookalike, clad in some kind of especially louche leopard skin number, screamed like a banshee and demanded: “Why do you call my dad a ‘coffin dodger’?”
Clearly surprised at this awkward ambush by a birdbrained bimbo, I simply responded: “Because that’s just what he is” and of this most unpleasant encouter I was reminded in recent days when somebody told me off on Twitter for using the very same description of the soon to be divorced for a fourth time old ‘codger’ Rupert Murdoch.
Said to be an alternative way of describing an “elderly person” or “crinkly” and sometimes abbreviated to ‘codger,’ this is a somewhat derogatory description that is representative of someone “good at avoiding death” but also is the name of an alcoholic beverage that is “sometimes drunk as a hangover cure.”
With even a beer named in its honour also, here is a phrase that should be used more widely and today we invite readers to suggest the names of other famous antique beings who quite frankly live on forever in the hope of simply annoying the rest of the bloody planet for as long as they possibly can.
Pictured top – Ultimate “coffin dodgers” Putin loving Bernie Ecclestone and maniacal media mogul Rupert Murdoch; here is a pair of very rich, very miserable, very tempestuous men who think they can do and say whatever they want. The vast majority of the planet most definitely won’t miss this pair of rotten toerags when they thankfully pass.

Matthew Steeples joins those demanding attention seeking rapist-serial killer Levi Bellfield isn’t granted the right to have a sham marriage in prison; this maniacal monster deserves punitive punishment not privileges.
After the premiere of ‘Untouchable’ – a 4-hour documentary about the late paedophile Sir Jimmy Savile – last night, Matthew Steeples suggests those supporting such people as him, Rolf Harris and Ghislaine Maxwell having a ‘right to reply’ should be shamed and silenced; it is victims who do deserve a voice instead.

As convicted mucky madam nonce Ghislaine Maxwell begins her 20-year jail sentence, it is not surprising that no prisoners want to share a dorm with her; her prison diaries will deservedly make for grim reading.
