After many months of unwanted attention, intrusions from burglars, the media and some fanatics, Susan Boyle hands over the crown of media personality temporarily.
The honour passes to Mr James Devine, born and bred in Blackburn and latterly Member of Parliament for the Livingston constituency.
Jim's claim to fame is that he allegedly claimed expenses to which he was not entitled. If that was not serious enough, he now has been granted Legal Aid to fight the charges against him.
The chattering classes are affronted by this. The leader of the Conservative party and possible next Prime Minister, jumped on his soapbox, as usual, to make up Tory policy on the hoof.
Perhaps, when, shouting the odds about this he should have quickly recalled that one Tory Lady in the Lords, lapsed for a few minutes and would not support a Labour amendment. The amendment, no Legal Aid for MP's.
If, heaven forbid, he becomes PM, perhaps Hairbrush Dave, will take at least 5 minutes to reinvent Tory policy. Goodness knows what will happen if they give him the nuclear trigger - ah, OK, I'm in a bad mood, nuke the Frenchies now!
Meanwhile, the heat is off Susan, Blackburn has another celebrity. Sadly, for all the wrong reasons.
