The Mail on Sunday - - Tina Weaver -

LOOK­ING at gor­geous Emily Blunt in her plung­ing white gown at the LA Mary Pop­pins premier – and as some­one who’s em­ployed quite a few child­car­ers over the years – two things struck me: I must book tick­ets to see this won­der­ful re­make. And what mother in their right mind would want to make the morn­ing break­fast rush even more trau­matic by hav­ing per­fect Emily glid­ing around the kitchen ta­ble? I NOW treat Brexit in the same way one some­times pre­tends to have read a clas­sic book: I shake my head sadly – or nod vig­or­ously – when a broad view is ex­pressed; use the phrase ‘I find parts prob­lem­atic’ when the de­bate gets down to the nitty gritty; and if re­ally stumped, ex­claim: ‘Isn’t Harry Red­knapp won­der­ful on I’m A Celebrity?’ Like ev­ery­one, I try to fol­low the twists and turns of the big­gest botch job in liv­ing mem­ory. But – like ev­ery­one – I just want us to get on with it now and talk about some­thing else.
