Dear Mr Cameron




Dear Dave

I am most upset by the news that Big L** DJ, Mike Read has made it onto your shortlist to stand against Ken Livingstone for the job of London Mayor.

I know you are a cultured man, a fan of Radiohead and Coldplay, and a supporter of the blogging community.

I don't know if you know, but there is a statue of the great writer Oscar Wilde, just across from Charing Cross Station...



I have it on good authority that if Mr Read becomes Mayor, he is determined to replace this tribute with one of his own favourite cultural "icon"...



I am begging you, as a cultured man, Dave. Please do not let this man lead Londoners. I would even prefer Adam Rickett.

    He can't be dallying with the Cheeky Girls ... their votes are pledged to the Lib Dems.

  5. Didn't Mike Read write a musical about Oscar Wilde, that closed after a single performance?

  6. I think the Oscar Wilde musical debacle hurt Mike deeply. It was pearls before swine. His Cliff musical was a major success.

    He came to the conclusion that the British public are not on his intellectual level so why should they have a statue of Wilde? Play to the gallery! Get out of the gutter and look at the stars!

  7. I thought it was a John Betjeman musical, although that could have been a completely different musical by Mr Read which was unkindly overlooked by the British public. Actually, Mike was once the first person voted out on a series of I'm A Celebrity which would make him the ideal Tory candidate. However, I'd be tempted to vote if it was Mike Reid instead.

  8. Surely Mike Reid and Cliff Richard were separated at birth.
    Pity really - otherwise they could have grown up to be the 'Cheeky boys'!

  9. Wyndham - T'rific.

    Kaz - Separated at birth? They weren't joined at the head because that double head would have been enormous.

    I thought his musical was about Dylan Thomas, I vaguely remember a song about a girl called Angharad but I may be wrong as I'm slightly Alzheimery.

  13. Last year he was doing a musical about the Village People: YMCA The Musical. I saw this on his website last night which was last updated in 2005. I can't find his website now. Did I dream it?

    High culture, low culture, now politics. Is there anything this man cannot turn his hand to?

  14. He deserves a knighthood.

  15. Are you sure that's Oscar? Looks like Jabba the Hut.

  16. I thought it was Mike Mansfield.

    Yes, I believe he's completely shit with a horsedrawn plough and he moves his lips when he reads.
