Celebrity Mastermind

Watched a couple of these over the last few days.

Anyone notice how they've dumbed down the questions for the celebs? In fact apparently the BBC actually helps coach them on how to revise for the show...

One guy the other day answered questions on the Human Body as his 'specialist subject' and I think I got all but one right, they were that easy!

I still notice that any egotistical politician that does the show bombs really badly as yet another one came last in his show. Still, however bad his showing was (and it was bad!), it can never eclipse the appalling humiliation that cunt Blunkett suffered a few years back...

David Blunkett bombs on celebrity Mastermind

Humiliating display of ignorance by ID card visionary

Home Secretary David Blunkett - he of the compulsory ID card scheme - has well and truly established his credentials with a disastrous performance on celebrity Mastermind.

Blunkett scored a miserable eleven, notching up just two correct answers in the general knowledge section. Presumably, one of these was a firm "yes" to the poser "Will UK citizens be obliged to carry ID cards whether they like it or not?"

Our Dave did rather better on his specialist subject - Harry Potter - but was soundly thrashed by ex-Eastenders star Shaun Williamson. Even TV gastro-personality Antony Worrall Thompson was able to pip the bumbling Blunkett to the post.

Those who would like confirmation that the country is indeed in safe hands can watch the home secretary's humiliation on Boxing Day on BBC2. We cannot at present confirm that the programme will show a disconsolate Blunkett offering "Pass" to the question: "Are there any weapons of mass destruction in Iraq?"
My favourite was when the article called him a 'visionary'...
