From masterchef Nick Griffin to Barack Obama - 5 of the most obvious things anyone has said

News Shopper: Nick Griffin makes a cheap stew Nick Griffin makes a cheap stew

INSPIRED by Nick Griffin’s appearance as a wannabe TV chef who reminds watchers to “take the tin foil off your stock cubes”, we look at the top 5 most painfully obvious things anyone has ever said. 

News Shopper: President Barack Obama

5. Speaking in Tampa in 2010, Barack Obama made the important observation that: “The Middle East is obviously an issue that has plagued the region for centuries.”

News Shopper: Pippa Middleton

4. In her book, ‘Celebrate’, Pippa Middleton offers a useful, little-known tip for Valentine’s Day: “Flowers are a traditional Valentine’s token, and red roses are the classic symbol of romance, be it a dozen hand tied in a beautiful bouquet or simply a single stem.”

News Shopper: The dream lived on: Boro's scoreboard shows Grays in front

3. This list just would not be complete without an inane quotation from a sports personality, so here we have Howard Wilkinson offering an insight into the scoring system of football: “I'm a firm believer if you score one goal, then the other team have to score two to win”.

2. At two, our favourite line from bankrupt BNP leader Nick Griffin’s cookery show, the sound advice that: “Different things take different times to cook.”

News Shopper: From masterchef Nick Griffin to Barack Obama - 5 of the most obvious things anyone has said

1. But the best, or perhaps worst, most painfully obvious thing to say was stated by Brooke Shields during an interview to become a spokesperson for an anti-smoking campaign. Shields pointed out: “Smoking kills. If you are killed, you've lost a very important part of your life.” Thanks for the heads-up!

Old potless does know that the veg was picked by Eastern Europeans.
Also what is he doing buying meat when he told his voters to eat road kill.

Fail.

I don't class these as mind boggling slips with Obama or Griffin but to be quite blunt, taking the foil off a stock cube may infact reflect the way this country has become dumbed down in terms of what is "obvious" a small example of this is "Joey Essex" a celeb who from what I read was in a programme called "I'm a Celebrity" filmed in Australia who admitted he could not "read the clock" or, "thought the second world war ended in the 1970s" but it hasn't stopped him earning more than anyone on this newspaper! Huh!

David Cameron forget his own daughter was in the pub and left without her! those are serious slips from someone supposedly running our country! LOL

Stick a fork in Fatty, he's done. Over done in fact.
