Whilst discussing Thatcher's death just now on This Morning, he meant to say "funked" but ended up changing the "n" for a "c"!!!

I heard that too! He dealt with it in the 'kicking Bishop Brennan up the arse' way and carried straight on. It didn't seem noticed in the studio.

Remember in 1997, when he lost the election and ranted at the microphone against that anti-EC tycoon who beat him, who stood by with his mates laughing and clapping, going, 'Out! Out! Out!'

He also let the same word slip on his Saturday LBC radio show a few weeks ago. Getting to be a habit David?

Why would he need to say funked? What was the sentence he was trying to say?

Probably better known for 'funking' Antonia de Sancha and Mona Bauwens when he was not only married, but a Minister in John Majors Government. Bauwens was the daughter of a wealthy Palestinian businessman who was a major fund raiser for the PLO and Mellor enjoyed the high life courtesy of Bauwen senior.

As Dave has told us....."we are all in it together."

Some of us!

Maybe he wants a bit of publicity, just to remind people he's not dead, because I thought he was as well!

Were there toes involved ? Or have I got the wrong person?

It was meant to be flunked. As in missed the opportunity.

Toe-sucking was certainly mentioned, along with wearing a Chelsea shirt while funking, but this seems to have been an invention of Max Clifford's.

I do hope this bizarre little 1970s Dave Spart recidivist soon gets ostracised by TV, leaving him more time to make Dennis Skinner seem forward-thinking.

James Goldsmith. And yes, it was hilarious!

Mellor ruined 6-0-6 on Five Live. It's never recovered. Going from Danny Baker's brilliance to David's 'As I said to my friend Ken Bates....' was awful.

Is this the same Max Clifford who seems to have gone very quiet lately about highlighting other people's shortcomings in the national press?
