In Politics, Gervais's teenage enthusiasm for activism kicks off a series of digs at liberal sacred cows - from accusing the disabled of being lazy to mocking anti-war songs and sloganeering T-shirts. Could it ruffle feathers? "I think that most people know it's a persona," he says. "I don't really think the disabled are lazy, but I like walking that line. I could give the character a name - like Billy Bigot - but that's not interesting.
This is my site The Folkestone Gerald that I set up in a fury of excitement when I first came here in approximately 2004. I had been a frequent visitor for a while previous to that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get now. This site was updated more frequently with a calendar of events + voting for favourite venues + things, and I know it was a handy resource for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though only to Hythe) it doesn't get as much love as it used to. Ironic really as The town is now becoming the exciting place we knew it was just about to. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of The Day Today or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, + how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are GRATE aren't they? Do get in touch if you have something to contribute, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
