Yarooh, you cads! Trouble at Redfriars

February 16, 2013 at 5:53 pm (Champagne Charlie, cults, misogyny, spoofs, SWP)

This seems to be some kind of spoof, but I’ve no idea of what…

Billy Delta on the run

Redfriars School was founded in 1877 by its eccentric benefactor Anthony Cliff, as a special fee-paying school for Trotskyists, so that they could enjoy the benefits of a public school education, far from prying eyes.

Since Cliff passed away, Acting Headmaster Algernon Stallinicos has struggled manfully to maintain the school’s traditions, with the help of the Chair of the Governors, Sir Charlie, the Seventh Baronet Kimber.

Billy Delta is the Creep of the Remove. Billy is well-known for being able to peel an orange in his pocket. His appetites are vast. He is always on the prowl, and usually loses his trousers. Billy is waiting for a ten-bob postal order.

    Is it politically significant that Polly Ester is left-handed? She’d be no good at infiltration…

    Is the “but I’ve no idea of what” comment serious or ironic? Can’t quite tell …

    Anyway, I got every reference and I think it’s brilliant.

    I reckon Charlie Champers didn’t go to public school.

    Pure dead brilliant – and if you have difficulty recognising some of the caricatures that Daily Mail article with its unflattering photos will help in a couple of cases.

    Not come across John Heartfield (or at least this John Heartfield) but there a disconcerting number of links to positive reviews of his work in Spiked on his homepage:

    Is he perchance a Furedi cultist?
