Isn’t it strange how the world works? Only yesterday I was talking with a friend about the dozy cow that is Sarah Kennedy. Then the next day she is in the news for talking about Enoch Powell, saying that he is the best Prime Minister we never had. She may well be right, but it is not the sort of thing that she should be saying on her radio show, according to the BBC.
I had to photograph Mrs Kennedy a while back for the Sunday Mirror, who were planning a story about how haggard and run down she looked, due to excessive drinking and the such like. On the way to grab a snatch of her I listened to her radio show, and I have say that I thought that she must be pissed, I have never heard so much incoherent load of bollox in my life.
