Yes, he really can. Because you're worth it.

When I was on the bus tonight on my way home, I overheard a woman telling her friend about the magazine she'd just bought, an American title called Essence. 'It's got an article in it about Michelle Obama and her mum,' she told her. 'It looked lovely.'

Then, more wistfully, she said, 'I need to spend some time in America. America does wonders for your hair and face.' 

If this is a new development, I hope the reckoners are taking this into account in their 100 Days Reckoning. That means you, Marbers.

I spent four years in America and came back considerably better-looking (no really, you should have seen me before). So I'm afraid I don't count this as a new development. But please do keep up the reports from the frontline, Miss Jones. Where SE London goes, the world goes.

It's true, if little known, that many of the world's great political and social thinkers have come out of the boroughs of Southwark and Lewisham. Remind me, Marbury, where you grew up, won't you?
