Discussions with Chicago Matt brought to light some of the unofficial ambassadors for England available to download in this mp3 file. Sound quality on this podcast isn't perfect as Rob forgot to switch his mic on, but what the heck, tomorrows show should be better:-

  • 10 - Sir Elton John
  • 9 - Prince Charles and Prince William
  • 8 - Tony Blair
  • 7 - David Beckham
  • 6 - David Brent
  • 5 - Gordon Brown
  • 4 - James Bond

  • 2 - Paul MacCartney
  • 1 - Mr Bean

Nice list, chaps, but there was a serious lack of
(a) Michael Caine and
(b) Wallace and Gromit
on it.

PS - My sister is planning to move to Peterborough. Is she making a mistake? Before you ask - no, she isn't single.

Best move she's ever made, but there a good and bad areas - email us if you want to know what they are. Micheal Caine does make us an appearance in another list this week, stay tuned...

Whoa, 2 shows in one day? You guys are spoiling us!

JH said...

What about John Cleese, or any of the Python crew (Eric Idle, Michael Palin)? Best ambassadors ever!

{Ignore any comments that may be subsequently posted concerning Rik Mayall or Adrian Edmonson. They are ambassadors of stupidity and unfunniness, ph!}

How about Rik Mayall and Ade Edmondson? - sorry jh, couldn't resist!!! ;-)

PH said...

Thanks, Brian! :-)

How about Sacha Baron Cohen? I hear he is already helping develop foreign relations with Kazakhstan. Innit? :-)

How about Sean Connery? He is one top class bloke. Nice and Scottish.
Seriously though, wouldn't he be decent in the role?

PH said...

No one said they had to BE English, did they? Or did I miss that part? :-)

maja said...

Or Eddie Izzard, he's very popular in America, isn't he?

Nigel said...

England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales all make up the United Kingdom, we are all very protective of our corners. Don't know what the US version of this is, I suppose states.
