    Sure to be some "oh my god" moments…..

    Edwina Currie spends a week as Big Mac’s wife – what a horrible pair!

    i only ended up watching it as the footie was awful.<br> <br>I dare say that programme didn’t make him any, if any, friends whatsoever.    But what does astound me is ‘his office’.  I find it hard to believe that he is able to work and study there.  Perhaps he doesn’t but even my office here looks remotely like one.

    It was an interesting diversion from the football and I have to say that the man has gone down even further in my estimation than before.

    Gotta agree with you, Malc.

    I thought the only one who came out of the program as anything resembling a normal, balanced human being was Edwina’s husband.

    Big mac was the same revolting, childish, close-minded, helpless, charmless, boorish, selfish, control freak, terrified of new experience, embarrassment that he was on Big Brother.  

    His wife cut a rather pathetic figure who’s learned to accept a life of slavish and unrewarded devotion.

    Currie was obnoxious and bullying. Though, to be fair to her, it could be said that she was provoked ….

    The footie was not the best quality, but awful is a bit over the top.

    The second half was one of the more exciting games I have seen – I believe all three outcomes traded at under 1.1 on Betfair!

    Sadly I missed the last, um, four goals.   So, I shall correct myself.  Until that point until which I turned over the game was dire.

    I expect that with four goals the game showed more vim and vigour than it did in the first.

    Back to the programme.  I thought that Jenny cut a sympathetic figure until the final post-mortem thing and then I just thought that she deserved what she got.

    Currie struck me as intelligent and someone whose company I could enjoy as was her husband.   McCirick, I’m afraid to say was rude; when I have guests I try to ensure that I’m not eating a chicken curry in bed alone whilst they are in the dining room.

    I’ve tried to like the fellow in the past and, if I could just listen past his rantings, I could find something that I could appreciate in what he said.  

    What he’s doing can’t be good for racing’s image; being a Character is one thing but being the Court Jester or Fool doesn’t mean that one has has to be an idiot.

    Enough of this; there’s the delights of Tralee to trawl through for tomorrow.

    Night all.

    We all know the way John McCririck lives his life most people do. If he and Jenny the booby are happy (and they obviously are) I don’t see why anyone should have a problem with that, they don’t HAVE TO conform to convention. They’re not hurting anyone.

    I found Edwina Currie a control freak who simply cannot accept that something isn’t the way she’d like it to be. Unfortunately for her everyone isn’t going to live their lives in a certain way just to please her. The right for people to live their lives how they see fit as long as its within the law is just that, their right, thats why freedom is so valuable.

    I thought Edwina’s husband seemed a nice guy.

    I couldn’t agree with that.

    He’s a miserable b*****d
    who hates himself and is always complaining.

    Hardly the sign of a happy person.

    As for Mrs Mc, when Currie’s husband asked her why she doesn’t try to get Mac to go riding or for walks, she just shrugged and looked sad and defeated.

    I’d say she’s someone who given up any notions of happiness or joy in exchange for a settled life in a nice house and where she can find a sense of signifcance by waiting hand and foot on someone who lacks the basic life competencies.

    While there are women who have it far worse than her, it’s still not much of a life. And it’s not what I’d call happiness.

    <br>You don’t have to call it happiness though Steve, as long as they do thats all that matters.

    Edwina Currie tried to dominate and barely gave the Booby a chance to reply.

    The McCriricks don’t have to justify themselves or their relationship to Edwina or anyone else.

    It’s not my idea of a relationship either – but whatever floats their boat.

    Who trains that Edwina Curry mare?

    <br>I’d be more worried about who’s been riding her. :o  ;)
