The Scottish Mail on Sunday - - Comment -

RIP TPT. In the 1990s I came up with the ti­tle ‘Yah!’ for Tara Palmer-Tomkin­son’s col­umn as an It Girl in The Sun­day Times, while the col­umn along­side it, which I ghost-wrote for Meg Mathews, wife of Noel Gal­lagher, was called ‘Yeah!’

Meg was a sweet­heart, fail­ing to ever get my jokes but ve­to­ing noth­ing, and yelling ‘b ***** off’ to the Oasis hard­man who’d be wail­ing in the back­ground: ‘Don’t let Liz write that!’

Tara was a dif­fer­ent mat­ter, al­ready ad­dicted to drugs, cry­ing down the phone that she’d run out of money, mean­ing a mes­sen­ger would be dis­patched to her from Wap­ping, wield­ing wads of cash.

The me­dia were party to her par­ty­ing.
