Shed Of The Week
As we meander up to the general election, it is good to be reminded that deep at heart the Tories share working class aspirations. Former prime minister, David Cameron, I learned this week, has just bought himself what many an ordinary man yearns for, a shed.
Mind you, it is no ordinary shed. It is hand-built shepherd’s hut and comes replete with sheep’s wool insulation, a wood-burning stove, (a chimney, I hope), Bakelite light switches and hardwood stable doors. Although you can get a basic Red Sky shepherd’s hut for as little as £16,500, this one is reported to have set him back a cool twenty-five grand, a smidge above the annual benefit cap for low-income families.
I just hope it is strong and stable.
