Rowan’s Atkinson diet is not for the (old) birds

Another day, another Quote Of The Day.

I know, I know but this one’s just too good not to embalm & enshrine.

So, here’s the Guardian’s Victoria Coren, having come to bury & faintly praise Rowan Atkinson, before turning the daggers on the Tory cultural secretary.

Enjoy:

‘It’s tough to take stands. That’s worth thinking about when Jeremy Hunt, the culture secretary, says more footballers should come out. I understand he believes that the self-identification of gay footballers would help stamp out intolerance generally, and perhaps it would, but he’s also talked lately about the recurring issue of racism in football and I’m fairly sure that a lot of professional players have been out as black for years.’
