Laurence Fox has morphed from a much loved tellybox treasure into a tedious twerp; his new political party deserves only ‘destination dustbin’
Just as Nigel Farage is yet again “contemplating a return to frontline politics” (no surprises there given his past on-off-on-off and again antics when he’s in need of a bit more ‘wonga wonga’), another tedious loudmouth is sticking his oar in also.
Laurence Fox, whom we saluted as a ‘Hero of the Hour’ for quite rightly calling out the ‘MegExit’ saga as self-absorbed nonsense in January 2019, has sadly since morphed into a bit of a nutter and not only has decided to launch a political party, but also had ‘Freedom’ and ‘Space’ tattooed in a most ghastly fashion on his hands.
Fox – whose acting abilities in Lewis made him a middle-aged housewives firm favourite between 2006 and 2015 – has, it seems, changed from a “shy around women, sensitive and a bit naïve” Harrovian school boy into a BNP-esque bully determined to “fight the culture wars” (whatever they are).
The actor has allegedly raised £5 million already for his ludicrous ‘cause’ and “hopes to stand dozens of candidates across the UK” for a party he has provisionally named Reclaim. On his website, he pompously states:
“Over many years it has become clear that our politicians have lost touch with the people they represent and govern. Moreover, our public institutions now work to an agenda beyond their main purpose.”
“Our modern United Kingdom was born out of the respectful inclusion of so many individual voices. It is steeped in the innate values of families and communities, diverse in the truest sense but united in the want and need to call this island home.”
“The people of the United Kingdom are tired of being told that we represent the very thing we have, in history, stood together against.”
“We are all privileged to be the custodians of our shared heritage. We can reclaim a respectful nation where all are included and none are ashamed to have somewhere to call home.”
“I have been so encouraged by the support I have received by those wishing to add their voices to this reclamation of our values.”
“Our country is now in desperate need of a new political movement which promises to make our future a shared endeavour, not a divisive one.”
Ironically, in a not so cryptic reference to Inspector Morse, Fox – whose website ironically links to a reputation management and crisis issues firm, Reputation Communications, whose clients also number the Equality and Human Rights Commission – ends by repeating: “This is now my endeavour.”
Frankly, here is a man whom speaks nothing but utter gibberish and someone whose party sounds quite beyond pointless. Whilst Laurence Fox’s political movement will undoubtedly fast fade into obscurity, those hideous inkings sadly are with him for life. The poor chap needs only to find himself a ‘safe’ space and he needs ‘freedom’ to about his stupidity. Next!
