Yesterday the SKWAWKBOX featured Sky News’ observation, captured by a sharp-eyed SKWAWKBOX reader, that Theresa May’s speech featured lines lifted almost verbatim from a monologue by Martin Sheen’s President Bartlett in the famous political series The West Wing.
Sean, another quick-witted reader commented on that post and pointed out something we thought was worth its own special mention:
The irony too that she was saying (in the speech) that the Election [campaign] was “TOO SCRIPTED” and “TOO PRESIDENTIAL” then this – you couldn’t make it up!
You really couldn’t, could you?
Sean, we salute you.
