cognitivedissonance - 2016-05-10 I've never known anything about Kenny Everett until a few weeks ago, and his overlap with Andy Kaufman is pretty intense.
kamlem - 2016-05-11 They don't really make the case that he was doing anything but taking the piss.
Old_Zircon - 2016-05-11 Yeah, I'm going to have to look in to this.
Old_Zircon - 2016-05-11 "Everett clarified that he was not a "full Tory", but that he had been appalled by the actions of Arthur Scargill, whom he saw as "inciting violence" and "rebel rousing" [sic] and whom he thought looked like "Hitler reborn". He had consequently supported the actions of Margaret Thatcher in opposing Scargill."
