You might know the banana story. During the second world war, Evelyn Waugh\’s wife managed to procure three bananas for their children. When she brought the fruit home, Evelyn sat down in front of the children, peeled the bananas, poured on cream and sugar, and ate them all.
Umm, well, that\’s not the way I\’ve heard it.
It was post WWII and the new Labour Government procured bananas, one for each child in the Kingdom. A celebration of it all being over. But Evelyn, being made of stern stuff, wasn\’t going to have some damn socialists bribing his own children.
And quite right too.
