We do like to chuck the occasional new strand into the Zelo Street mix from time to time, and, taking our cue from Mr Emmanuel Strobes and his highly steamed crew at Private Eye, today is the first in what will become a series of Lookalike posts. All suggestions – as ever, email address at right – are welcomed, even those that may or may not include me. With or without a melon.
But the honour of first feature in the Zelo Street Lookalike thread goes to one of the blog’s most popular – and totally clueless – subjects, the odious flannelled fool Henry Cole, tame gofer to the perpetually thirsty Paul Staines at the Guido Fawkes blog. And alongside Master Cole (aged 17¾) is a far more useful and productive part of our everyday lives.
Yes, it’s not easy to tell which is Master Cole and which is the bogbrush. As the Eye might have said, I wonder if by any chance they are related? I think we should be told.
