Why You Should Never Go To The Edinburgh Fringe

THE Fringe features Lunch With The Hamiltons: Second Helping!  That’s Neil Hamilton and his wife Christine.

Has anyone seen their show and lived? And did you pay money? Is this what counts for entertainment up there?

Tony Blair, don’t despair – there is life after politics. Just look at Neil Hamilton. Ten years ago he’d just lost his parliamentary seat to ex-BBC war correspondent Martin Bell, and far worse was to follow: expensive libel actions; all sorts of upsetting allegations, and in 1998, William Hague asked him to stay away from the Conservative party conference. But with the loyal support of his wife, Christine, Neil bounced back, and now he’s hosting his own chat show. Lunch With The Hamiltons was a hit in Edinburgh last summer, and now they’re returning for a second helping. “We spent far too much time in the Westminster Palace Of Varieties,” said Christine last year. “We’re now in the real world of showbiz entertainment.” Talk about feeding from the hand that bites you.
