British Comedy Collection
Alf Garnett is a bigoted fool with strong opinions about anybody who threatens the world as he knows it... especially bloody foreigners.
The character has been called racist by some due to his bigoted attitudes, but Warren Mitchell made his point some years ago when a football supporter congratulated him for having a go at immigrants...

His reply:

"ACTUALLY, WE'RE
HAVING A GO AT
IDIOTS LIKE YOU."

The one who wore the trousers was you,
Now after all these years...
at last I'm pushing you about,
But in sickness and in health...
I love you.

In sickness and in health I said I do.
