DUP Bud­get threat is ic­ing on the cake of a crazy week

Daily Record - - NEWS -

THE DUP are threat­en­ing to vote down the Bud­get if Theresa May doesn’t com­pro­mise on Brexit.

Seems like they want to have their cake and eat it. Ob­vi­ously as long as it’s just a plain cake. Not one with a con­tro­ver­sial mes­sage writ­ten in ic­ing.

ALEX has won the first se­ries of Chan­nel 4’s re­al­ity show The Cir­cle. That’s the one where con­tes­tants live in the same block of flats but only ever in­ter­act on so­cial me­dia. The prize is bril­liant. He’s won £50,000. And a life.

PRINCESS Eu­ge­nie got mar­ried yes­ter­day, although fam­ily ten­sions with Prince An­drew meant that Camilla didn’t at­tend the cer­e­mony.

To be fair, that might be be­cause Prince An­drew asked if she’d pull the horse-drawn car­riage.

SHARES in Patis­serie Va­lerie have been sus­pended af­ter they dis­cov­ered “sig­nif­i­cant ac­count­ing ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties”.

There are fears that some­one has been in­flat­ing the fig­ures. Which is un­der­stand­able. Be­cause I mas­sively in­flate mine ev­ery time I have a cream cake there.

GWYNETH Pal­trow has re­sponded to crit­i­cism of her con­tro­ver­sial life­style brand, Goop, as it cel­e­brates its 10th birth­day.

She’s told crit­ics of the brand to calm down. By us­ing Goop’s med­i­ta­tive or­ganic al­falfa and quinoa fa­cials, just £79 for two.

“FAM” and “Noth­ing­burger” are among al­most 350 new words that have been added to the lat­est Ox­ford English Dic­tionary.

“Noth­ing­burger” means “a per­son of lit­tle worth” – not, as many thought, a de­scrip­tion of what your Big Mac looks like com­pared to the pic­ture of it on the wall in McDon­ald’s.
