John Cleese is leaving the UK, sick of lying press

Jack BuckbyRebel Contributor

John Cleese, one of the greatest comedians Britain has ever seen, is leaving the country. He’s moving to the Caribbean because he’s sick of the newspaper lying all the time.

In an interview with Newsnight, Cleese explains what has made him so angry, and points out just how few people actually trust the media in the UK.

I’ll be sad to see him go, but I can’t say I blame him.

The British press has got nothing on the cbc.

I wish I could afford to retire on a Caribbean Island. Our msm, and government are equally offensive, un air and disingenuous. I don’t blame him for bailing at his age. He doesn’t strike me as someone who would be able to comply quietly. I’m still hoping we can turn our country around(Canada) and regain some balance here. I’ve still got a few good years left of trying, but a plan B is never a bad idea. I was born in a free country and when the day comes, I plan on dying in one. Is there anything more insulting than being ‘quelled’ by restricting information? Yes, and you don’t want to see it. How much bull crap does one man have to see for him to bail on his own country? Quite a lot, and I’m sure Cleese didn’t make the decision lightly. The UK is a pitiful shell of its former self. The UK is Canada in a few short years. What are we going to do about it?

Fawlty Towers was a favorite of mine as well. I had hoped that John was going to take over the job of “Q” in the James Bond Series, it appeared as if they were grooming him for the part. Easy to see John is not a Hollywood Elitist, he’s in touch with reality.

Canada is no different. MSM is every bit as corrupt and Marxist in Canada. I loved the way he laughed in her face when she tried to suggest the unpopularity of MSM was because it’s robust.

Andrew, he brought a chart to the interview, try watching Jack’s reports for a change.

Really good coverage Jack Buckby. I’m truly enjoying your videos.
No one will ever hear of John Cleese again, or who he was. He will be silenced forever, the old shows will be removed from all discussion and comedic history.

“This parrot is efffing demised, I tell you!”

Who knew way back then that he was prophesying the current state of the UK. Oh yeah, Adam Powell.

“There’s a rumour abroad that I dislike ‘Political Correctness’ This is a complete distortion of my views… I absolutely fucking abhor it.”

Apparently he’s actually leaving because of the Brexit mess. Sure, he doesn’t like the media, but this one’s a stretch.

Would love to see Cleese unhinged and unrestrained in a Caribbean comedy club w/o the PC police taking notes.
Always loved Monte Python (and Fawlty Towers)
