Following a flood of a communiques in relation to our look-a-like feature last week TS has been forced by popular demand to return to the subject of well known public figures who may have been separated at birth. This week we turn to the government’s paymaster general, Dawn Primarolo, who, according to the avalanche of mail at TS Towers, bears an uncanny resemblance to that well known cross-dressing comic Eddie Izzard. Staggering as this may seem, we think the pictures drawn from our extensive archive proves the point, even if the funnyman’s maquillage is a little neater. Ever drawn to mischief making TS is also lead to ponder on what would have happened if the would-be siblings reversed their roles. Would Primarolo get as many laughs as a stand-up as she currently gets as a key government minister? Could Izzard’s observations as one of Tony’s cronies be more intelligent than in his role as master of mirth? Who knows, but those of you dealing with IR35 might be wondering who the true japster really is. Send your look-a-likes to email@example.com.
