1The suggestion that the prime minister had been flirting with one of the senior women cabinet ministers made me laugh every time I saw it, and I thought, "if you only knew!" Perhaps they should have pushed it a bit harder.
2Marie Curie is my lifelong heroine and I'm proud to promote such a worthwhile charity. Even this year, in the midst of a recession, people are falling ill with cancer and really need their services, both the home nursing scheme and the wonderful hospices in Edinburgh and Glasgow. If I can encourage more support for them I shall be delighted.
