And it’s goodnight from her…

Camila BatmanghelidjhFunny how the mind plays tricks isn’t it? As others have observed, Camila Batmanghelidjh, the disgraced boss of Kids Company, does a very good impression of the late Ronnie Barker in drag.

I had a memory of Ronnie dressed as Carmen Miranda for one of the Two Ronnies musical numbers because that’s the image I now have in mind whenever I think of Camila, which isn’t often I must confess.

Ronnie BarkerBut no matter how hard I searched, I couldn’t match the image in my head with anything on Google, so either I dreamed the whole thing or it simply doesn’t exist which I find hard to believe.

Anyway, the best I could come up with is the photo on the right and you must admit that Camila is a more than passable tribute act.

This post is only topical because the BBC documentary, Camila’s Kids Company: The Inside Story, aired last night. I don’t suppose it told us anything new, except that Camila doesn’t know the difference between Miss Piggy and Peppa Pig.

    I watched the documentary. It seems that Camila Batmanghelidjh was very well-intentioned but rather crazy too. More questions should be asked of D.Cameron and Alan Yentob. How could that guy run the BBC when he couldn’t even control the finances and operation of a relatively small charity? So much money was wasted when it could have been used to assist other needy children in other parts of the country.

    How did Ronnie Barker manage to get such an attractive cleavage? If little Ronnie had ever dived in there, he wouldn’t have got back to the surface again.
