Shilpa back in the House (another House)

This was quite funny. A reflection on how much politicians love to use the power of celebrity. All of us who ever follow celebrity matters can take some of the blame.....................

Particularly telling is the fact that Shilpa met more ministers than the average Head of State does on a state visit including six minutes with the Prime Minister, Tony Blair:

"She had lunch with Tessa Jowell, the Culture Secretary, and an embarrassing number of other ministers. All in all, Shilpa is believed to have met six Cabinet Ministers. They were Peter Hain, Jack Straw, Harriet Harman, Hazel Blears, plus Tessa and TB. At the last moment, Home Secretary John Reid had to cancel. That is how busy he is now."
