A NANNY FROM HELL?
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.
