Flip flopping from one thing to another


On today’s Show I was pleased to welcome back MARGARET MILLS for her regular book review.

Margaret’s choice this month was “The Kennedy Curse – the untold story of America’s most famous family” by James Patterson.

Now James Patterson is better known as a writer of thrillers so I was curious to know if this was a factional or fictional account.

In general I had the feeling that Margaret didn’t feel that this book answered all the questions about the Kennedys, but listen here to what Margaret told me herself: –

If at the end of the day you feel that this is a book worth reading it’s available as a paperback from Amazon at about £8.00, Waterstones and WH Smith at £8.49. The hardback edition priced at around £18.00 is also available from Amazon and Waterstones and from W H Smith at £14. A kindle edition is also available.

We also heard the strange but true story about the man with a fetish for flip-flops who’s been arrested in Thailand after being caught on CCTV whilst breaking into his latest victim’s home.

After catching up with the 24-year old thief, officer’s raided his home and found a staggering collection of 126 pairs of flip-flops, which he had amassed over a more than 2-year splurge.

The culprit admitted that he got “turned on” by wearing them but that after several hours, he would take them off, cuddle and kiss them, before stripping off and rubbing them all over his body.

Police said his collection included dozens of different brands, sizes and colours of shoes, all of them well worn. The vast array of footwear was laid out in front of the local police station as part of a press conference last Monday.

The man later admitted to 3 charges of night time theft and violating the coronavirus curfew. It subsequently emerged that he had been arrested for stealing flip-flops in another district last year.

Police said later that he had fully admitted stealing the sandals for lewd purposes, so will be detained at the station until a court appearance for prosecutors to decide on the next part of the legal process against him.

Surely his defence will be that he was only looking for a “soul mate”!

Stewart Pink will be looking after things for me on tomorrow’s show as I’ll be deputising for Michelle Ward.
