"Wozza" is celebrity chef Antony Worrall-Thompson,whose full name is Henry Antony Cardew Worrall Thompson. He once said that he wanted to be a Conservative MP. More than that, he said that he quite fancied succeeding Michael Heseltine as MP for Henley.
So, the British public could have been treated to "Wozza" as the MP for Henley, instead of that apology itinerist, Bozza.
Are we better off, as things turned out? You decide.
Any road up, because of his credentials above, you would be right in thinking that my opinion of "Wozza" is that he is a complete....well "Wozza" really.
All this is leading to his appearance on GMTV, that TV station have to watch as part of my matrimonial contract. It was this morning.
He was "up against" Dr Hilary Jones, GMTV's doctor.
I don't mind telling you that I quite like the cut of Hilary Jones' jib. He is an all-round good egg, particularly as he regularly warns about the symptoms of meningitis, a disease which killed son. I am also mesmerised by his hair. I have seen him "in the flesh" and it is extraordinary how he looks, on screen, as though he has a full head of hair. But that doesn't diminish his all-round good eggness. He is a TV performer, after all.
Any road up (2), Wozza is a total numpty. He is campaigning against the smoking ban. He appeared in a smoking jacket at the Savoy to make the point. It was in Telegraph today. He had a barney with Hilary Jones on GMTV. Wozza was saying that the smoking ban is disgusting and that it will make people smoke at home where they will cause more harm to their family. When pressed by Jones, who cited a hero of mine, Roy Castle (who died of lung cancer despite never having smoked due, probably, to his playing the trumpet in smoke-filled working mens' clubs), Wozza said that there is "no evidence that passive smoking harms anyone".
What a complete Wozza.
The gist of this rambling post is that dear old Hilary Jones, bless him, gave Wozza "what for" and gently and smilingly pointed out that there is "unequivocal" evidence that passive smoking is harmful.
What beats me is that Wozza (who you will notice has now escaped his inverted commas) spends his life making fine things for people to put in their mouth, then defends people who stick poisonous tobacco sticks in their mouth. I would have thought he would have realised by now that his involvement with the smoking lobby is all a bit counter-productive when you take his life in the round.
