Day­dreams and miniskirts

all those ex­pense fid­dling, pros­ti­tute us­ing, back­han­der re­ceiv­ing, child sex abus­ing and drug tak­ing mem­bers of the po­lit­i­cal Es­tab­lish­ment.

There are more cor­rupt and dan­ger­ous politi­cians than there are po­lice of­fi­cers. LAST week Bar­bara Fisher asked for our mem­o­ries of Cilla.

Mine are prob­a­bly the same as those shared by many girls brought

up in the six­ties.

Skip­ping rope in hand and a pair of mum’s old danc­ing shoes on our feet we were pre­par­ing for an ap­pear­ance on Top of the Pops, no ab­bre­vi­a­tions in those days.

Cilla, Lulu, Dusty Spring­field and Sandie Shaw did noth­ing more out­ra­geous than go bare­foot and wear mini skirts, although that was very dar­ing.

And of course we all had our favourite Bea­tle, I al­ways wanted to marry Ge­orge Har­ri­son.

Of course with­out an iPad, iPhone etc we had plenty of time to day­dream some­thing peo­ple say they don’t, have time for. What a pity!
