Following hot on the heels of the by now totally exhausted Jonathon Ross/Russell Brand attack on much loved Spanish waiter Manuel, the cast of Dad's Army added their accumulated weight to the debate.
'We're all doomed,' Private Frazer announced. 'When ye get long haired yobs tryin' tae tak the pish oot o Manuel it just reinforces your belief that we're all doomed. Och it's a terrible day for the the nation.'
Captain Mainwaring, resisting exhortations from Corporal Jones to go and stick bayonets up the respective arses of Ross and Brand as 'they don't like it up 'em,' said that he was dismayed, disappointed, a little bit pissed, but devastated by the way the so-called celebs slagged off Andrew Sachs. 'These are the kind of people who would have surrendered to the nazis' he said.
Sergeant Wilson stated that he had enough problems at home with Pike's mother, thus couldn't be arsed. To whit Captain Mainwaring issued one of his trademark dirty looks.
Private Godfrey was unavailable for comment as he was having his 34th piss of the day, and the vicar stated that although he thought Brand and Ross were arseholes he'd still at least snog them.
The verger was up the doctors getting his arse stitched up and the ARP bloke was busy rehearsing for a pantomime gig in Southampton.
'It's shit, but a job's a job,' he said.
