Thread: Rory Stewart = James Bond?

  1. #1

    Rory Stewart = James Bond?

    Having just read the guy's wiki page, I am obliged to conclude that Rory is in fact a very close approximation to all-around action hero James Bond.

    (no actual politics please, but caricatures welcome)

    There is more than a passing resemblance.

    Interesting read for you:
    His colourful past also came under scrutiny as he denied in a hustings ever having worked for the MI6 intelligence agency. However, the Telegraph quoted security sources claiming that Stewart had been employed as a spy for about seven years in his 20s. Another source who worked with Stewart also told the Guardian it was well known he had worked for the intelligence services.

    Looks like he may be a pocket watch sort of chap.

    Never! that title goes to Paddy Ashdown, Royal Marines, SBS, MI5, MI6.. Stewart doesn't look like he could punch a hole through wet paper!

    He certainly fits the reality of intelligence services, which by and large are rather grey desk types

    Have to say he looks more like Q from the recent movies than Bond.

    I Prefer to use his real name Roderick

    yes he's Rod Stewart

    history teacher to the Royal Princes

    when visiting his new constituency in Penrith he was asked what it was like ....'well its a bit primitive people use string to hold their pants up'....quality.

    he will go far...go Rodders

    Rumour has it he is very convincing in drag, which is apparently one of the requirements.

    He does not look anything like a security services operative which is just what they want one of theirs to look like!

    I rate him, can’t see any flaws in his plans or chinks in his armour apart from being a quirky looking fella

    He appears to be telling it like it is, i.e. things have not gone very well for us, to say the very least.

    Also a member of the Special Forces club, so possibly not a complete pushover in a fight (for all you macho watch collectors).

    Don’t know, i’d Like to see it though. From what i’M reading here sounds like Stewart has hidden talents. Anyway, enough of all this, what watch does he strap on to his mighty muscular wrist.

    Don't take my silence for agreement. I've just realised you're too stupid to argue with.

    He looks a bit more ‘Fantastic Beasts’ than 007 to me.

    Why is he sat like that? Is it a ‘power pose’ ?

    It was all a bit unnecessary. His legs couldn’t have been wider apart if he was sat on a horse. Only one with no tie too. He’s conscious of how he comes across. The things that winds me up with them all now is how they’ve all been on the course learning how to point without pointing. This new curled index finger and thumb thing is evident in them all..... clearly the desire to point as they pontificate is so overwhelming they’ve had to find a coping strategy.

    I think all this talk about what he looks like is unnecessary. Some of the most violent and unpleasant-people-in-a-fight I know are quite lithe. You'd certainly want them on your side not the other.

    He was clearly trying to differentiate and distance himself from the others, no tie, very different posture.

    I didn't think it was possible to look uglier or wimpier than Michael Gove but Stewart, the toothsome tory has proved me wrong.

    Did Johnson get asked about his lying and the 2 jobs he lost because of it or is the altar being prepared for the Oaf?

    Every time I see Rory, I'm reminded of Eddie Redmayne in 'The Danish Girl'.

    Whoever gets it is going to be toast in a few months when reality sinks in. It might as well be BJ, shameful as that seems.
