Glenda Jackson Dances With Bulls

After standing down as MP, twice Oscar winner Glenda Jackson is returning to acting after 23 years. I bet Dame Maggie and Judi are shitting themselves. I've always been a great admirer of Glenda's high cheekbones.



I would've loved to have seen her perform this dance routine in the House of Commons, after she made that rant about Thatcher.

  1. I have to honestly admit that I had lost track of Ms Jackson and did not know that she had gone to serve in the Parliament. Will Carmen be standing for Ms Jackson's vacated seat?

    1. I'm with LX, both in that this is all news to me (not the bit about her cheekbones, OF COURSE) and that Carmen in office is a brilliant idea.

  2. According to reports, Westminster is in a terrible state, patching and mending are no longer sufficient, fundamental renovations can no longer be avoided. Complete closure of the building for repair over a period of 6-10 years and at a cost of £3.5 billion and 7.5 billion. The cheapest and quickest method would be to send Carmen over there with miles and miles of the 'ubiquitous cellotape' as Glenda mentioned in her talk, but the problem with using cellotape is that you can never find the end, which can be rather annoying.

    1. Maybe those at Westminster could borrow THIS BUILDING for the duration of the renovation work?

    2. I agree, failing that for 3-7 billion pounds for the upkeep of the fusty old museum, it would be cheaper to build something from scratch somewhere in the Midlands or perhaps use the Albert Dock in Liverpool where they used to film Richard and Judy and turn Westminster into a department store to rival Harrods.

  3. Sunday Bloody Sunday is a must see.

    P.S. Silly Putty and Silly String can work remodel wonders.

    1. Wooden clothes pegs can be used to fill in holes in partition walls and skimmed over using tile grout.

  4. I reckon Helen Mirren ought to watch out for Glenda!

    1. She could give Helen Mirren a run for her money, I hope she doesn't ruin herself by going into Coronation Street.

    2. Now that Deirdre's dead, Ken Barlow needs a new love interest.

    3. Indeed! I think Audrey is being groomed for that position, but Helen would also do well... perhaps as a competing love interest? Maybe Audrey, Helen and Glenda could fight over Ken on the cobbles - they could all slap each other. And then Tracy could kill one of them.

  5. I fecking love Glenda. She is the best. Can't believe she's been away for so long but if she does do a McKellen and pop on Corrie, I'll not be best please. x

  6. I don't know, I think her House of Commons routine is VERY similar to her cattle frightening routine. It certainly saw off those big, hairy lummoxes in the same way.
