The hilarious mullet haircut banter starts at the 2:21 mark….
ROBERT KELLY: The mullet is being asked for dozens and dozens of times. Hairdressers are saying it's ALL they're getting asked for.
WALLACE CHAPMAN: Have you seen Tony Blair lately?
ROBERT KELLY: Yeah, is that a mullet though?
CHRIS GALLIVAN: No.
WALLACE CHAPMAN: It is, it is a mullet.
CHRIS GALLIVAN: Serious?
WALLACE CHAPMAN: It's quite a---, yeah.
ROBERT KELLY: I think---
WALLACE CHAPMAN: Go and have a look. Google "Tony Blair", look,---
CHRIS GALLIVAN: Oh, I don't know if I WANT to.
WALLACE CHAPMAN: ---look, look, ha ha!
ROBERT KELLY: He does look like he's gone through quite a major THIRD ACT, doesn't he.
ALI JONES: I'm googling now.
CHRIS GALLIVAN: An existential crisis.
WALLACE CHAPMAN: It's quite extraordinary!
CHRIS GALLIVAN: I've been polite and turned my phone off, so I can't do it.
ALI JONES: Here's the heading from CNN: "Tony Blair has a mullet now and it's disturbing Britain".
WALLACE CHAPMAN: There you go! Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!
CHRIS GALLIVAN: So they didn't get him on crimes against humanity for Iraq---
WALLACE CHAPMAN: Ha ha!
ROBERT KELLY: Hrrrmmmm.
CHRIS GALLIVAN: ---but they're gonna get him for crimes against fashion and hair.
ROBERT KELLY: A-a-a-a-and as a public broadcaster I'm not touching that with a pole. Aaaaahhhmm, so, [awkward laugh] hm, hm, moving on, ahhhh, we have all SORTS of things going on, but no one's actually ASKING for a mullet. So people are staying away from the word itself, but are asking for something like it, and one of the hairdressers said that, um, people are coming in and asking for a cross between a nineties shag and the harder eighties mullet. Which I have to admit is a nomenclature that escapes me. Aaaaahhmm….
Continues to burble on uncomfortably....
