Cherie Blair and Nancy Dell’ Olio herd goats over London Bridge: photos

MINTED Cherie Blair and Nancy Dell’Olio spent the day herding goats across London Bridge. This was, it says here, to raise awareness for International Widows day. The goat herding was arranged by Lord Loomba’s Loomba Foundation, which attests that the goat is a life-line for many widows in South Asia and Africa. Lord Loomba is a Freeman of the City of London, giving him the right to herd livestock over the bridge.

This is Cherie who advised women recently:

“One of the things that worries me now is you see young women who say: ‘I look at the sacrifices that women have made and I think, why do I need to bother, why can’t I just marry a rich husband and retire?’ and you think, how can they even imagine that is the way to fulfil yourself, how dangerous it is.”

You should consider option 2: marry a middle-class husband and then encourage him to get a job in the public sector before making as much money as he can from war contacts and banking. Says Nancy: “Did I ever tell you about Sven..?”
