Mancunians are ace
Which we all knew anyway! What would be his first law? Letting Citeh actually win something? :-D
Yes, I know Mr. Glenister isn't actually from the fabled city but he does the accent well enough so he gets my vote.
Life on Mars and Ashes to Ashes anti-hero cop Detective Chief Inspector Gene Hunt - played with suitable gusto by Philip Glenister - has been voted by telly fans as the fictional character they would most like to see become Blighty's Prime Minister. The self-styled Gene Genie - known for his no-BS manner around the manor - …
Gene Hunt isn't a TV star, he's a character. If the voting public can't even make that distinction...
Then again, I guess they will be voting for one of the TV stars from BBC 1's new hit TV show "Election Debate".
I for one welcome our new TV character overlords, and I can't wait for the internet fanboy fallout when a Russell T Davies character wins.
But then again, he's running against Doctor Who, the man who changes faces as often as he changes his clothes (and still (presumably with the amount of women he's around) stays fresh).
I wouldn't go telling any fan-girls that Gene Hunt doesn't exist though
I wonder what Britain would be like if Timothy Dalton was prime minister..
He's been President of the High Council of the Time Lords,
He's been James Bond
He's run a Somerfield
He's been Julius Cesar
So pretty much he's got the ability to pretend to rule, the ability to pretend to be awesome and the ability to connect with the mentally hilarious and bored rural types as well as those from the city.
Plus he could just burn down London if it got too screwy again.
Also, he's Welsh- which seems to be pretty cool at the moment.
Timothy Dalton for Prime Minister!
This is now how the PM will be chosen, thanks to the "let's all pretend we're American and voting for a president" TV debates. Nicklegg only topped the polls because Jedward was unavailable.
And while I'm in curmudgeon mode, why do we want to encourage more people to vote? If you can't be arsed to walk a couple of hundred yards to the nearest polling booth or fill in a postal vote, should you really have a say in who governs the country?
