What a golden moment – and it should tell the Conservative leaders of our Coalition government exactly how highly their country regards them.
Channel 4 ran a festive, celebrity edition of its game show Fifteen to One yesterday (Tuesday, December 23). This is the one with 15 contestants (all faces from TV in this instance), in which a contestant who answers a question correctly can nominate others to answer until one of them gets an answer right, in which case the metaphorical baton gets passed to them. For every wrong answer they lose one of their three ‘lives’.
In last night’s edition, Phill Jupitus nominated Jenny Éclair to answer a question on George Osborne. How was he known before he decided to adopt the name ‘George’?
Without hesitation, Ms Éclair uttered: “Tit.”
She lost a life but Phill was already murmuring “Worth it. Worth it!” as the buzzer sounded for an incorrect answer.
Who could argue with him?
