Did He Really Resign?

She gets fixated on particular headlines. This morning it's the final short paragraph in the Telegraph's editorial column-  a piece of heavy-handed Tory humour at the expense of the resigning Lib-Dem Minister Norman Baker who has an interest in UFOs and fronts a rock band.

"Did he really resign?" she asks.

I tell her all about it.

"Did he really resign?" she asks again.

I've lost count but I think we've now been through the cycle five or six times.

Sorry, since I started this post she's asked again so that makes it that six or seven.

I try to vary my answers. That way I preserve the sweetness of my temper. I haven't yet said how feeble the humour is or how evil the Tories are, but I'm sorely tempted.
