Bolter’s back on Insiders!

The Comic Dog was up on his favourite chair, wagging his tail, his coat shiny after a 6 week stay on the farm.

As usual, he talked all over everyone, maintaining a veneer of civility only until he could get a cheap shot in at David Marr about global warming.

Thus leaving everyone else on the show in perpetual catch up mode.

Memo to anyone kennelled with the Comic Dog – he’s never smiling, he’s baring his teeth. Get him in a squirrel grip first and fast, or he’ll eat the baby’s face.

And what is going on with the models’ own costuming for that show? Last week Karen Middleton and Malcolm Farr looked like Santa’s enormous elves in red and green. This week Marr was topless, with bad eczema. Oh no, it was a red shirt, searing the eyeballs. Earth tones people please. It’s Sunday morning.
