Rattling the jewellery

John Lennon once famously told a Royal Variety Performance: "For those of you in the cheap seats I'd like ya to clap your hands to this one; the rest of you can just rattle your jewelry!". I was quite amused therefore by this story from the Daily Mail a few weeks ago:

Kate Harvey, spouse of Army Minister Nick Harvey, was bemused when MoD officials arrived to install a safe in their family home.

Its purpose is to store classified documents, and the key to an MoD secure ‘bat phone’ which Mr Harvey keeps in case of a threat to the realm.

‘But you can also keep your jewellery in it, love – that’s what Labour Ministers’ wives did,’ advised one of the workmen.

Another fascinating insight into how the other half live.
