Kay Burley's Fantasy, Drunken, Nymphomaniac Characters

Kay Burley’s new book First Ladies, could be problematic. Burley is quoted in the Telegraph as saying “readers will certainly recognise the three women in my novel”, it tells the somewhat more racy than Mills & Boon tale of “three formidable women, united in their love of one man (who just happens to be the prime minister), but soon set on a path of revenge”.

The fictional women are; the “titian-haired” Sally Simpson, “a powerful magazine editor … in skin-tight Prada and killer heels, she is every man’s fantasy”; Valerie Jenson, a “deeply unhappy” and “weary first lady” who “spends her time drinking”; “sexy TV reporter Isla McGovern, who has caught Julian’s eye and will do anything (or anyone) to get to the top”.

Wonder who she based the characters on?

Quote of the Day

Peter Mandelson tells Emma Barnett…

“I think that Jeremy Corbyn himself should search his conscience and ask himself whether he’s the best person to lead the Labour Party into the general election with the best chance of success for the party.”
