Cliff Richard - should he give it up?

Just been watching him on This Morning (whilst pretending to work from home and surfing Mumsnet).

AIBU to think he should call it quits? His face is full of plastic and his movements are stiff. He's certainly never been a Mick Jagger but Mick still has the energy and fire of a 30 year old, despite looking so haggard (and we all know why THAT is).

So Cliff, what are you doing? You were very pretty when you were young. But now I think it's time to put on the slippers.

When when when will MN get a [vomit] emoticon?

EldritchCleavage Thu 21-Nov-13 11:57:40

I did my best, but that OP would not listen to sense. All that Boris talk just got her going. She went off to watch vids of him on YouTube.

cloggal Thu 21-Nov-13 11:56:18

I can't accept that there is such a thing, Eldritch. I won't.

EldritchCleavage Thu 21-Nov-13 11:31:17

If you think Cliff fandom is bad, have a mosey over to the I fancy Boris Johnson one. It will chill the very marrow of your bones.

WelshWereRabbit I'm glad you enjoyed it but I'm afraid it will haunt you forever.

You know when people see the face of Jesus or Mary in household objects? I saw Cliff in a scrunched up chamois leather yesterday. Should I put it on ebay?

Nigella means Operation Facelift. Everyone knows that.

Onesleeptillwembley Wed 20-Nov-13 20:07:58

I think you mean operation Fernbridge, nigella.

WelshWereRabbit Wed 20-Nov-13 20:07:09

Can I just say that you tube clip is the funniest thing I've seem in ages. Thank you for sharing!

cjel Wed 20-Nov-13 20:02:19

NIGELLA - seriously?

It has to be Brucie for me I never liked him in the 70s either, his ego is so big now its crazy

MaryZygon Wed 20-Nov-13 19:42:32

Bloody hell, Nigella.

You don't fancy getting that comment removed? I'm sure you didn't mean to say it.

SPsWouldCatFishNev Wed 20-Nov-13 19:24:48

Geez Louise! How did I miss that.

I don't have a clue what you mean but then again I don't go around stating people look like child abusers.

Fucking hell.

LetZygonsbeZygons Wed 20-Nov-13 19:20:49

Nigella shock. cant believe you said that.

raffle Wed 20-Nov-13 19:19:08

Good God Nigella

YoureBeingASillyBilly Wed 20-Nov-13 19:14:03

" I always thought he looked like he had a few skeletons in the closet IYKWIM."

no. I dont know what you mean. I think we all know there is no 'look' that gives away a child abuser. what a ridiculous, ignorant comment.

engage brain before posting nigella.

NewtRipley Wed 20-Nov-13 19:05:20

Nigella

That's horrible

He has spoken about his sexuality (he is open about the fact that he lives with a man but thinks beyond that it's none of anyone else's business what he does in the bedroom0. He has also campaigned for same-sex marriage.

So you are well wide of the mark in implying he is a paedophile or abuser.

Reporting your post

Chippednailvarnish Wed 20-Nov-13 19:02:41

I can't fucking stand Cliff, but casting aspersions about operation Yewtree is uncalled for and in very bad taste.

SPsWouldCatFishNev Wed 20-Nov-13 15:04:31

I'm.starting a petition to rename Christmas to Cliffmas

Can"t stand him or McCartney . Why don"t they just pack it in .

LaRegina Wed 20-Nov-13 14:34:34

Ooh Macca would be permanently retired so he can go off and wobble his head somewhere private.

Brucie could stay as long as he just reads the autocue and stops trying to make jokes. He's harmless isn't he.

But Cliff should stay. Christmas isn't Christmas without him!

ppeatfruit Wed 20-Nov-13 14:32:13

thanks forgetmenots The other thing that pisses me off about Cliff is that he seems to have an ego the size of Gt. Britain; he never sounds humble or unsure of himself. You're right Eldritch I must stop listening to R2 grin.

mitchsta Wed 20-Nov-13 13:02:08

Brucie would have to go for me I'm afraid. He's always given me the creeps...

EldritchCleavage Wed 20-Nov-13 12:20:16

I live in a Cliff-free zone-apart from SP's posts, I never come across him. You lot need to review your entertainment choices if Cliff is intruding into your lives. Stick to BBC Four and Radio Three. Job done.

SPsWouldCatFishNev Wed 20-Nov-13 12:18:38

Maybe he reads MN and his return is because of me?! shock You lot are so welcome

Sing on Cliff, sing on

forgetmenots Wed 20-Nov-13 12:07:45

Good argument ppeat.

I suspect with Christmas around the corner the Cliff resurgence will make me change my mind.
