A little digression is, however, in order. My attention - belatedly - has been brought to a most remarkable event: the licence-fee payer has, courtesy of the BBC, dished out a cool £75,000, and even more extraordinarily promising never to repeat a programme aired earlier in the year, to the mysterious and horse-faced Lady Falkender for broadcasting information already in the public domain - namely, her ermined equineness drew up a list if cronies to be rewarded (known as the “Lavender list”) and that she got five of the best from Harold Wilson. Although the latter was something I was unaware of.
Having felt the “industry” of Harold Wilson’s “white heat” five times, could it be that the gorgeous Lady Five-In-Her (picture above has her at a distance from Wilson, as so often, presumably so as not to be overcome by the PM’s “white heat”) dreamt up this line to keep alive, albeit secretly, for future generations her lust for Harold Wilson’s Member for Cockshire? The whole thing fits together if she did conjure up the soundbite. I’d be happy to hear from anyone who has any insight into this matter. Meanwhile, from beyond the grave, Harold Wilson does to the licence fee-paying public what he did to Lady Falkender.
