Why Bernard is our big-screen bum­bler

The Mail on Sunday - - News -

IN CHAN­NEL 4’s Brexit: The Un­civil War, vet­eran Leaver Sir Bernard Jenkin was played by ac­tor Tim McMul­lan, pic­tured in the role – not as a cam­paign hero but as a bum­bling, out-of-touch ob­sta­cle to Vote Leave’s ‘ge­nius’ Do­minic Cum­mings. But he should be used to get­ting a raw deal from the sil­ver screen. He is the in­spi­ra­tion for ev­ery ir­ri­tat­ing Bernard in Richard Cur­tis’s films – in­clud­ing a sad, lovelorn char­ac­ter in Four Wed­dings And A Fu­neral.
