Morpheus on… Douglas Hurd

Douglas Hurd

Remember him? One of Margaret Thatcher’s top hench-persons. Writer, politician, idiot. The voice was Fozzie Bear with an English accent – and apparently he once USED that voice in a Cadbury’s Smash ad (according to Wiki, in 2008).

Anyhoo, it turns out the old boy is STILL ALIVE! He is 86 now (and looks much the same as he did 40 years ago  – meaning he looked like THIS in his FORTIES).

One suspects he would LIKE to be remembered for all of his “sterling work” in the Tory political arena of the Eighties, but to be realistic – his MAIN achievement will ALWAYS be that addition to the canon of COCKNEY RHYMING SLANG.

“Excuse me, I have to go and DROP A DOUGLAS.”
