The Shhh! The Top Secret Film Society headed off to Henley to see "In The Loop". Fans of "The Thick of It" will know what to expect, with enough swearing to make Peter Jones rest happy in his bed.
There were a few occasions that saw the front row going solo with giggling. Quite possibly because, whilst it might have been a Westminster-Washington satire, you couldn't help yourself from comparing these ludicrous characters and their comments to some of our local politicians.
"I am not a monster"
Rik "Desk Jockey" Willis:
"Have you actually ever killed anyone?"
"What you fell asleep on them, that doesn't count."
Peter "Sweary Mary" Jones:
"Those are curse words right?"
"Kiss my sweaty balls, you fat f***"
Andrew Cumpsty [on making a decision]:
"We have a saying in England: 'difficult difficult, lemon difficult'"
...or when he's speaking in full council:
"You're lobsterising. Can anyone smell bisque?"
You may be seeing more of this in the coming days on a satirical web site near you!
And if anyone turns up today at the Katesgrove councillors' surgery today with a problem with a wall... I'm out of there!
