    Only Alexei could get away with rhyming "invoices" with "noises".<br/>He certainly has got Il Duce’s chin.<br/>I always thought of Derek Hatton as a typical scouse dictator, but this clip has made me re-evaluate the nature of egotistical despots of the world.<br/>That was a fantastic programme from my youth.

    *That was a fantastic programme from my youth.*<br/>Took the words from my mouth Ister.<br/>I’m going to try the theory though:<br/>"next time the points are broken, and control makes the wrong choices,<br/>ignore the nasty words being spoken, <br/>and tell the punters to eeek blurgh jabber jabber squaitsch…etc"<br/>Apologies RoMo for the railway type comment.<br/>My favourite Sayle gag was a clip of him in hysterics while looking in a mirror, he said "that’s the thing about us Brits, we can laugh at ourselves."

    Ister – yes – that was a brilliant programme and I especially like that bit. I loved the Eastern European/Russian/Polish landlord character Alexei Sayle played in the Young Ones too.<br/><br/>Howeser – yes – I would have liked that yesterday morning when the train took 15 mins to crawl from Clapham Junction to Vauxhall. And I might stand up in the meeting I’m going to today if it get’s a bit tense and sing the stupid noises song – I reckon that will sort everybody out.

    I remember watching that so clearly… he was great in the Young Ones.<br/><br/>’Are you Mussolini?'<br/>’Eeeerm… yeah!’

    Howesy – Fancying military dictators is a common phenomenon.<br/><br/>Eugene Terrablanche used to give me the horn. I also used to get hot under the collar when Fidel Castro delivered those pointless speeches on Cuban television in the sixties. Perhaps it must be something to do with their deluded self-belief crossed with their utter stupidity that got me feeling light-headed?<br/><br/>On second thoughts perhaps it was just the military uniform…<br/><br/>"Hello soldier".

  10. It’s the tassle. The ladies can’t resist it.

    Whaagh!….late scrolling. I secretly fancied Alexis Sale. NOT Il Duce. That was a close call.
