Mr Monkey has just spewed up his banana after seeing this picture of Ugly Betty, aka councillor Audrey McMillan.
But it’s nice to see that she’s made an effort for tonight’s Labour party bash at South Tyneside College. She’s dyed her hair flame red and Mr Monkey can’t help wondering whether it’s to cover her grey hair, remind everyone she’s Labour through and through or if it’s something to do with catching the Defence Secretary’s eye whose portfolio includes the navy and everyone knows how fond councillor McMillan Ugly Betty is of all things nautical, especially sailors.
Mr Monkey reckons councillor Donaldson could tell a story or two about his days in Her Majesty’s constabulary and how they often had to drag her off the ships before they left port. Apparently she was that well known to them, they had her picture on the wall.
Either that or the Sergeant was trying to scare the night shift into staying awake.
