Classic clangers from the last week
A COBRA dweller
A female member of the government’s COBRA emergency committee on flooding victims at a cocktail reception: “These dwellers ought not to have bought on a flood plain. Are they stupid?” This K&C resident plainly is sympathetic to her core.
The 2.5% man
A well-built estate agent on the phone to a client whilst sat in a bar in Belgravia was heard to remark: “Don’t you find it just a little bit ridiculous that I’m only getting 2.5%. I’ve not done anything I admit, but come on, I want my 2.5% on this £15 million sale”. A week’s hard labour might do him good.
Russian client of an estate agent to Mr 2.5%: “I’m not interested in that £10 million house as it looks like a boat”. Estate agent replies: “Well, it was designed by a boat designer”. Client: “I don’t want a boat”. Agent: “Well, you could imagine you’re in The America’s Cup”. Client: “No”. Maybe he’d have more luck marketing it to the flood victims in Somerset.
