THE regular media feature At Home With The Gimsons continues apace now Andrew, Councillor Sally’s husband, is writing columns in the Evening Standard. Followers of The Gimson Family will be well aware that every detail of their lives together seems to appear in print sooner or later. Never mind reality TV, this is reality journalism folks!
Sally, who won the Highgate by-election last year, has been devouring columns in places like the New Statesman [like the one in which she talked about Andrew being “sacked” from The Telegraph] and has written acres about her dramatic home life for the Guardian‘s family section.
Last night, it was the Tale Of The Missing Bicycle as Andrew told in the Standard how his bike had been pinched from Great Portland Street. Sally laughed at this horror, he explained in the column, and he took a taxi home from his evening out with friends wishing somebody would take his loss seriously.
By the end of the article, I was quite relieved his bicycle had been stolen. He mentions drinking enough wine to help him sleep. I’m sure neither Andrew nor Sally would advocate taking to saddle after too much vino.
Mr G explains: “After such hectic social activity, there is nothing better than to clear one’s head with a bike ride through the cold night air.“
