Minor Celebrity Get Me Out of Here

Star sighting of the week: Pete Price standing on the little circular bandstand thing outside Dixons in Church Street, animatedly talking to a news camera crew, presumably about the whole Boris thing.

I still don’t understand what Boris Johnson is actually going to do when he comes up here to apologise. I’ve heard nothing about press interviews, meetings with local officials or anything like that. Is he going to just stand in the street and yell, "I’m sorry"?

Personally, having had time to reflect, I think we’re being too hard on him; he didn’t actually write the article in question and he’s already written a grovelling letter to the Daily Post.

My all time record for star spotting is still seeing someone who might have been Sinbad from Brookside in WHSmith once.

    Clearly that’s what that big screen is for. Forward planning, y’see. They’ll probably just put the buffoon’s face on it and have him apologising around the clock.

    Sometimes, I’m glad to be out of it all and living way away where this kind of irritiating wank doesn’t reach.

    Yeah, you just have to put up with George W Bush, the ultimate irritating wank. 🙂
