Busty celebrates national treasure

gossip-three-23-300x3001

They say a week is a long time in politics, you want to try a week in the life of Busty. To be honest I’m feeling a little guilty but I’ve been cock-a-hoop for days – and it’s nothing to do with Maggie Thatcher either – more of which in a minute.
Let’s face it,  I’m no political animal, but it seems the so-called Iron Lady has not only divided the nation, she’s split the marketing press too.
Over at Haymarket – funnily enough run by Tory grandee Hezza – they simply can’t get enough, and have been bashing out tributes all week.
“Senior ad figures salute Thatcher”… “How Thatcher changed the marketing industry forever”… “Thatcher one of the greatest prime ministers of all time, says Lord Bell”…they just keep on coming.
Over at Marketing Week. Nothing. Not a single mention. Not even “Death triggers marketing strategy rethink”. It’s almost as if they haven’t noticed. Ah well, nothing new there then…
Hard left or hard right, which one are you? To be honest, I couldn’t give a toss whether you’re left or right, so long as you’re hard…
Talking of which, was it really only a week ago that I was up at Aintree, parading round the paddock in my LK Bennett riding boots, fighting through the sea of orange scousers?
And while the nation mourns or celebrates, depending on political persuasions, I’m afraid I simply haven’t got time as I’m going to be doing my own bit for the economy, having scooped over six-and-a-half grand on the National…yep, you read it right, six-and-a-half big ones!
To be honest I was feeling a little down, as my top tip for the day before, Midnight Minx, turned out to be a non-runner – it seems she’d been living up to her name and was too knackered – although it did mean that I had a bit of extra cash.
Now, originally I was planning to back Big Fella Thanks, after all, I do like a big fella. But I came across the winner – quite literally it seems – after an all-night session with my Victor Chandler man Steve. You see, he just kept coming back for an encore, and believe me his aurora was pretty impressive in the morning, too. Aurora Encore was the perfect fit – and once I’d watched it romp home, I let Steve have a good romp too.
And things got even better when I had a call from the organiser’s at Aintree to say the trollop who’d beaten me to first prize on the Ladies’ Day fashion parade turned out to be a man, so they were sending me a load of TK Maxx vouchers too.
This lady is definitely not for turning, I’m off for some retail therapy…
