Poor old Nigella – being accused of being a wacked out cokehead who can’t function without a team of – maybe not so – dedicated helpers. Oh, I’m sorry – what point was she trying to make again? After all, it’s no big deal at the end of the day, is it? The whole chattering class-North London media-set floats on a wave of the white stuff. The difference with the middle classes taking drugs, of course, is the presence of a comfortable safety net of money, privilege and friends in high places. Cut to those young girls in Rochdale who can’t boast any of those things.
So ruined lives and written off as pieces of white trash verses a possibly damaged US charm offensive – I know who deserves my sympathy more.
