Byline: Brian Reade

OF course the world is crazy. We give our kids mobile phones so they can ring and let us know when a gang is about to try and steal their mobile phone.

When a pensioner sees a GP they're given a pile of tablets to offset the reaction of the last bunch of tablets. When they're more wired than Pete Doherty, GPs call them in to ask which ones aren't working.

And we still eat pork scratchings knowing it's a slice of pig's arse scraped up from an abattoir floor, boiled in industrial grease, and will probably crack our teeth.

But all those seem sane compared to the decision to turn Ann Widdecombe, above, into an agony aunt.

Oh yes, the lady known in Darby & Jones circles as The Dried-Up Spinster's Dried-Up Spinster, hosts Ann Widdecombe To The Rescue next Tuesday on BBC2, where she gives advice on adult problems.

Well here's mine, love. How can anyone who's only ever taken part in a one-in-a-bed romp pass on advice about adult problems?
