Despite my obsession with Game of Thrones and Lucy Worsley’s The First Georgians right now, I am still televisually smitten with MTV’s Catfish. The show that exposes online love fraudsters. The throwaway youth TV show that one’s mind just cannot throw away. Instead, one sits post- episode genuinely saddened that our human need to love and be loved is so destructive. Or that the earth’s supply of gullible optimists may well be infinite.

Cooper went to Number Ten yesterday. Turns out that all my old Tory network have not forsaken me. I’m good buds with a couple of the Number Ten “West Wing”team and they got me on the invite list for “prominent media persons”.
