I am please Edwina was first out in Strictly Come Dancing

It's really not my type of programwe but my wife watches it and I have to admit, I am amazed at the quality of the band's singers. They are really top class and I am always amazed at how well they imitate the original singers at times.

However, We are talking about Currie.

In my life I have always been impressed by "loyalty". To my mind debts have to be paid and if someone treats you correctly they deserve a little loyalty. In fact, I can go over the top with this but will keep my emotions tightly under control for this article.

The reason why I am glad she has lost is not because she slept with John Major, and it is funny how something like this affects the sexes differently. The grey man was considered a bit of a dark horse when the news came out and Edwina Currie was considered more than just a bit of a slag. I didn't have any views either way of the two sleeping together, but my impression of Currie changed to her being a complete bitch and slag was when she "kissed and told". This is not a "correct" thing to do any any decent society.

I didn't expect others to have the same strict views on disloyalty as myself so was very surprised when, come election, the public evidently felt the same way.

And, to be honest, I was even more amazed that the public still remembered  last Saturday night when she was voted out - or not voted for as the case was.

I am really glad she was the first one out, it couldn't have happened to a more suited contestant.

Ampers.

PS On leaving a pub one night with friends who asked, what should they do, John Major replied "I could murder a curry!".
