I’m cranky today. Sorry. Two days before Christmas I got slammed with a vicious head cold and it doesn’t exactly bring out my best side.
So just a heads up. I might be a tad on the snarky side. Or, snarkier, I guess I should say.
I stumbled across this article from Friday’s UK Guardian that made me roll my eyes so hard, they ended up facing the wrong way. And I had to slam my head onto my desk repeatedly to work them loose.
Here’s the headline:
“Leading lady: Theresa May calls for woman to play James Bond”
So rest easy my British friends!
Theresa May is way out ahead tackling the issues that really matter!
Not since Sir Winston Churchill’s heroic fight to defeat the Nazis has a Prime Minister shown such leadership in troubled times!
Sure, it’s been more than a year and a half and Brexit still hasn’t happened.
Okay, yeah, you’ve had several terrorist attacks over the last year.
But what’s that in comparison to the great injustice of a man playing a man named James Bond film after film?
“I think it’s a great move forward for girl power that there is going to be a female Doctor Who,” the female Winston Churchill opined. “And one day there should be a female James Bond.”
That’ll stop those terrorist attacks!
I’m so sorry, old Blighty. I truly am.
But it certainly does explain your present predicament.
I’m sure it’s only a matter of time before London Mayor Sadiq Khan decides to one-up Theresa May.
For him, it won’t be enough for James Bond to be a woman. She’ll also have to be a repatriated ISIS fighter who gets hired by British intelligence to spy on Brits who tweet out Islamophobic “hate speech.”
I can just imagine the arch villain of that Bond film.
She’ll be played by a Katie Hopkins lookalike with a name like Colonel Twitterfingers.
Hey, priorities have never been the strong suit of Britain’s elected leadership.
And, let’s face it. If the choice comes down to jihadists who mow down pedestrians or Katie Hopkins’ tweets, Britain’s political leaders would rather target Katie.
So it only makes sense that a James Bond movie reflect current reality.
Well, except for the whole inconvenient “James Bond is a man” reality. That can go straight out the window.
Hat tip the UK Guardian.
