“Who the f*ck is Matt Forde?” – allegedly the words of Noel Gallagher – are the first thing one encounters on accessing the website of this comedian and one time political advisor to the Labour Party. Nottingham born and the son of a former nun, Forde’s Twitter handles reads: “A talentless liar, a shameless sycophantic sell-out with a jelly spine and a mush mind”. As well as presenting a show named The Political Party with Matt Forde, this TalkSport late-night host welcomes abuse but “just give it [to him] on Twitter and make it brief”. Undoubtedly one of Tony Blair’s biggest apologists, Matt Forde described his favourite former Prime Minister as: “The best Labour leader and the best Prime Minister in history” in 2014. Churchill and Thatcher plainly passed this “hypocritical new Labour Adolf Blair-loving hippy scumbag” by.
