'At last,' gasped the editor of Hello magazine on radio at lunchtime. I could sense the £s signs dancing in her irises. Since then the media appear to have lost its ability to broadcast home and world news.
This shouldn't be news headlines. The couple have been living together for some time yet they've decided an engagement is necessary. Seems there are specific formalities for royals that don't apply to the hoi polloi. At least they've decided to get married before their children are old enough to be page boys/flower girls.
I've just heard David Cameron saying, "It's good news and I'm sure it's an occasion when the country will come together." Doubt if the bankers will bother Dave. Thanks to their ability - with government help - to abuse our hard earned savings, they're in a position to drink Cristal any day of the week.
My good wishes to them. The engaged couple I mean.
