Is Jeremy #Corbyn now routinely channelling Peter Sellers playing Chance the Gardener in Being There #Labour? #FBPE #WATON #ABTV


Chance the Gardener: “I like to watch TV.”

President “Bobby”: “Mr. Gardner, do you agree with Ben, or do you think that we can stimulate growth through temporary incentives?”

[Long pause]

Chance the Gardener: “As long as the roots are not severed, all is well. And all will be well in the garden.”

President “Bobby”: “In the garden.”

Chance the Gardener: “Yes.  In the garden, growth has it seasons.  First comes spring and summer, but then we have fall and winter.  And then we get spring and summer again.”

President “Bobby”: “Spring and summer.”

Chance the Gardener: “Yes.”

President “Bobby”: “Then fall and winter.”

Chance the Gardener: “Yes.”

Benjamin Rand: “I think what our insightful young friend is saying is that we welcome the inevitable seasons of nature, but we’re upset by the seasons of our economy.”

Chance the Gardener: “Yes!  There will be growth in the spring!”

Benjamin Rand: “Hmm!”

Chance the Gardener: “Hmm!”

President “Bobby”: “Hm.  Well, Mr. Gardner, I must admit that is one of the most refreshing and optimistic statements I’ve heard in a very, very long time.”

[Benjamin Rand applauds]

President “Bobby”: “I admire your good, solid sense. That’s precisely what we lack on Capitol Hill.”

Louise: “You need to find yourself a nice woman.  But I think it should be an older woman, since you’re not going to do a young one any good.”

Pallbearer: “A man’s past cripples him.  His background turns into a swamp and invites scrutiny.”

Chance the Gardener: “This is just like television, only you can see much further.”

[With other poor black seniors, watching Chance on TV]

Louise: “It’s for sure a white man’s world in America.  Look here: I raised that boy since he was the size of a piss-ant.  And I’ll say right now, he never learned to read and write.  No, sir.  Had no brains at all.  Was stuffed with rice pudding between th’ ears.  Shortchanged by the Lord, and dumb as a jackass.  Look at him now!  Yes, sir, all you’ve gotta be is white in America, to get whatever you want.  Gobbledy-gook!”

Corbyn unlocking BAME talent

Vote Labour under Jeremy Corbyn, you know it makes sense …
