Ban Black Adder says Adviser to Michel Gove. 

Tendance Coatesy presents The Alternative View by Ben Gummer Ipswich MP (Conservative) and  adviser to Michel Gove, and National President of the White Feather Society.

“Thank you again Mr Coates, and a hearty New year to us all and every one, even Tiny Tim.

I gave a tin of spaghetti hoops to a beggar just opposite my ‘gaff’ in Fore Street so I am feeling extra good today.

It has been brought to my attention that a certain Black Adder on the google-box,  has been spreading unpatriotic messages.

The conflict has, for many, been seen through the fictional prism of dramas such as Oh! What a Lovely War, The Monocled Mutineer and Blackadder, as a misbegotten shambles – a series of catastrophic mistakes perpetrated by an out-of-touch elite. Even to this day there are Left-wing academics all too happy to feed those myths.

The same unpatriotic series attempted to “satirise” (dread verb), my late grandfather’s so-called ‘rotten borough’ in  Dunwich. Dunny-on-the-Wold, as they called it.

I will not have it.

Baron Deben gained his election to the House of Lords by free and open ballot. 

And my ancestor won by the same democratic process as can be proved.

Dunwich By-Election 1823
Party Candidate Votes % ±%
Adder Party B.Gummer 16,472* 100 100
Whig Pitt, the Even Younger 0 0 0
Keep Royalty White, Rat Catching And Safe Sewage Residents’ Party Brigadier General Horace Bolsom 0 0 0
Standing at the Back Dressed Stupidly and Looking Stupid Party Ivor `Jest-ye-not-madam’ Biggun 0 0 0
Majority 16,472 100
Turnout 1 100

So I say, Ban the Bolshies !

But I have also glad tidings to announce, my forthcoming nuptials will be covered live by Ipswich Spy.”

  1. I thought this was a joke when I first saw it on your blog. Here’s a remarkably balanced article in the Daily Mail, of all places: http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2533619/History-dons-Gove-ban-Blackadder-Great-War-comedy-not-documentary-schools-argue.html

    Gove is in my view the most annoying and incompetent Tory in Cabinet (and that’s saying something with George Osborne to compare him with!) Sign and share this petition: https://you.38degrees.org.uk/petitions/remove-michael-gove-from-office

  2. “History dons back Gove over ban on Blackadder: Great War comedy is not a documentary for schools, they argue.”

    Perhaps it is a case of death imitating life.
