Harry and the 'Paki'

You know the story, and I won't bore with you the usual commentary - young man, Army, risking life and limb, but still unfortunate, let's hope he's learnt his lesson now, etc etc.

But to save you from having to access the News of the World website and watch The Video Of Harry's Racist Shame yourself, I just wanted to share an unreported little detail that suggests - aside from the unthinking use of dodgy terms - that H is really quite a likeable and funny bloke.

Right at the end of the NoW video, when Harry is giving some orders to "his blokes' in a training exercise, he asks if there are any questions. "Are your pubes ginger too?" someone asks, in a deadpan tone. "Yes they are", he answers in the same way. 

Well, it made this blogger chuckle.  

His pretend phone call to his gran the Queen ("yah, love to the corgis...God save you") is also genuinely amusing, and suggests he's adept at laughing at himself.

What do you expect from the News of the Screws?
Nonetheless, glad to see your tabloid training received courtesy of The Mirror over Christmas is paying dividends.

So this parasitic oaf is now having a go at the gingers? My sideburns are deeply offended.
