On a different note, Derek Draper has also decided to actually start Twittering properly and posted something the other day at 4.42am that really did make me chuckle at the hypocritical Northern monkey. Putting aside the fact that the post was done in the wee small hours - presumably his new kid is keeping him up or he's jerking off to Internet porn - he chose to post the following,
# we are not toffs. we are NOT toffs. WE ARE NOT TOFFS!!!If you follow the link you will see the results of a Google image search which shows Tories at their Black and White ball, most of them not wearing ties and wearing suits, with lots of ladies looking glamorous, as you'd expect at one of these bashes. Of course, for Draper, because they are Tories they must be toffs right?
4:42 AM Feb 6th from web.
Then I noticed a Twitter update from Phil Donohue is reply which linked to this this picture of Draper (presumably with his wife (I'm not into GMTV it's shit so wouldn't be able to recognise her even if I tried)), wearing a black tie on a red carpet and generally looking like a posh git himself. Does that make him a Toff? Well if you follow Draper's logic it does I guess.
On the other hand, what it really illustrates is how pathetically out of touch and hypocritical the northern monkey actually is. The common man after all goes to so many red carpet bashes right? Mind you they're normally on the other side of the barrier to protect the likes of Draper from their inherent diseases - they are just proles after all.
