Abercrombie and Fitch and the NHS
Posted Saturday, 24 March 2007 at 20:24

My morning started off at the Woburn parish plan exhibition. The photo will be posted on the main site on Monday with the press release, however, it was a great exhibition which was very interactive and involved the villagers fully. Brilliant job Budge and everyone.


Stroke of luck that Kelly Holmes came to coach the football team on the pitch which meant that almost 200 visitors arrived at once!


My youngest daughter and her friend were with me. They thought we were on our way to London to the new Abercrombie and Fitch shop and looked very confused when I pulled into the car park. Cassie is used to this now, she just sighed, opened the car door said "come on Emma lets get it over with" – I think they enjoyed the fuss actually, and the tea and biscuits, but of course it’s not cool to admit that.


Abercrombie and Fitch was something else. The presentational devises were pitched very much at the gay man/teenage girl market, and like the girls said, it was like walking into an OTT celebrity house party, which just happened to be taking place within a shop.


You had to queue to get in and were greeted by two topless bronzed male models wearing very low slung jeans, the cause of much giggling from the girls. I think I must be getting old, give me a man with a brain any day!


After you had come in from the street, it transpired that it was actually a queue to join another queue at the bottom of the stairs, which was in fact a queue to join another queue at the top of the stairs, but all the way along nobody told you this. Who would have thought that Abercrombie and Fitch would model itself on the NHS?

Message for 'Anonymous' I'm afraid you're just two good for Nadine. Having visited the online A and F store(no queues there)isn't this prove positive that women have no need to stay at home and do the ironing. Old dinosaur that I am, that stuff looks exactly like mine before it's put in the wash.

If there were bronzed males with little on in way of clothing guiding me through the NHS waiting queue, hey I'd wait as long as it takes for my treatment, Nadine. There's a thought for you Blanche, sorry Patricia H.

Please make your mind up Anonymous. You either have one or two. If you do have two then can you tell me if you argue amongst yourself? Presumably you always win. I was thinking of getting another brain, as when I argue with the wife, she ALWAYS wins. If I had two then at least I could guarantee a win once in a while.

Nadine - perhaps we could get Chipen Dale to act as a 'greeter' in local A&E departments. The clock won't start ticking until after you've stuffed a few fivers into his thong...

Those poor people in Bedford.They're got to wake up to the pickle man all over the Beds on Sunday. First time I've known someone appearing more times than you Nadine in one edition. Mind you, he's had to pay to get there, unlike you. Must be time for election. He reckons he's got £20 million for Bedford. Now what does that work out each.....

I've just realized something Mrs. Dorries; you are the epitome of a "Cameroonian Conservative". I mean that with the greatest insult intended
