‘Will This Kill My Career?’ Actor Laurence Fox Comes Out as Pro-Trump!

Meet your new favourite actor Laurence Fox, currently trending on Twitter because of his shocking appearance on BBC’s Question Time last night.

It was shocking because instead of spouting the usual leftist pabulum, Fox boldly revealed himself as an anti-woke crusader.

On the hypocrisy of actors who rack up air miles:

Quote:

“Yeah the carbon footprint’s huge. But we make up for it by preaching to everyone how they should change their lives.”


On Meghan and Harry wanting to keep the perks of royalty while having independent lives:

Quote:

“I do think there’s a little bit of having cake and eating it, which I don’t enjoy.”


On the racism industry:

Quote:

“One of the dangerous things about throwing racism around in this country which we’re doing a lot at the moment is that people become so conscious of it that things like the Manchester grooming scandal get ignored. We… should not call someone racist just when they don’t agree with you.”


On being called out [by irritating fellow panellist Shami Chakrabati] for choosing a man, rather than one of the four female candidates to be the next leader of the Labour party:

Quote:

“Oh it’s not about women. Jeepers creepers. Sorry. Let me rewind. [Looking sarcastically at Chakrabati] Any of the women. Because it’s really important what gender you are rather than what your politics are…”


Laurence Fox is the son of actor James Fox (The ServantPerformance) and a member the extended acting dynasty which also includes (uncle) Edward; and cousins Emelia and Freddie. For nine seasons, he starred as Detective Sergeant James Hathaway in the Inspector Morse spin off Lewis. Most recently he played Lord Palmerston in the ITV/PBS series Victoria, though not the scene where Palmerston dies in flagrante with a chambermaid on the billiard table.

You can see more of Laurence Fox on the podcast I recorded with him for the Delingpod earlier this week. Here is the video version. The audio versions are herehere, and here.

“Do you think this will kill my career?” he asks me at one point, referring to his outspokenness.

But I don’t think it will. Ricky Gervais’s Golden Globes speech was one sign. This is another. The tide is turning: people are sick to death of woke; those who are still obsessed with identity politics and trigger warnings and snowflake culture are looking more and more ridiculous; and lots of people who were playing the woke game because it was fashionable and gave them a sense of belonging are now starting to see the error of their ways.

So no, Lozza, I don’t think you’re killing your career. I think you just elevated your status to national — and maybe, soon, international — hero.

And his music, as to be expected, is about as substantial as his fellows, Frank Turner and James Blunt.

I don't know what you're taking about, preying on menopausal 'but it's only my third bottle of wine' hearts while sitting on the luxury Yacht of life having a coke and a smile is actually one of my life's goals.

I have every James Blunt album and will continue until he is no longer making music. He may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but his music is great, he also has fans all over the world. A heck of a lot more successful than half the bands out there.

Are you sure you haven't just been ruined by 3 decades of terrible music, Elsels?

Shiat, I think three decades and think 60-70-80s, then realize you are talking about 90-00-10s. No, I mostly listen to classic, sprinkled with some dance and a heck of a lot of Blunt.

...and yes, those decades of music did suck, and Mercury died. So yeah.

I like Blunt a lot more than his music, I must confess. At least with him he is quite clear of his pretence.
