Alf GarnettAlf Garnett
was the (fictional) racially bigoted and misogynistic linchpin of the BBC television sitcom Til Death Us Do Part
, and was played masterfully throughout the series and its sequel series In Sickness and in Health
by actor Warren Mitchell
. Writer Johnny Speight has described Alf as a character with absolutely no redeeming features. He is cowardly, mean-spirited, racist, misogynistic, anti-semitic (despite evidence that he has Jewish blood), and blames all of his problems on everybody else.
It is probably not a complete coincidence that Warren Mitchell as Alf Garnett looks exactly like Rudyard Kipling.
