The Path To Vice

by | 14th, November 2005

‘RESIDENTS of Little Faringdon, Oxfordshire are unhappy that Kate Moss is moving into their locale.

Welcome to Little Faringdon – twinned with Amsterdam

Last time Moss was in town widow Sylvia Griffiths, 82, says she was “disturbed many times late at night”. “She got a drum kit for Christmas and kept us up banging it,” says she.

And there’s Wesley Hunt. He says that at Kate’s village parties there was “coke everywhere”. “Kate had her own special snorting room. It was a small lounge with a glass-covered table.”

But rather than worry over Moss’s imminent arrival, the model’s new neighbours should consider themselves fortunate. We’re sure Faringdon is a nice enough place, a chocolate box blend of thatched roofs, bridle paths and haystacks, but it’s not exactly on the tourist map.

Might it be that Moss will do for the place what vice has done for Amsterdam? As with the Dutch capital, coaches full of tourists may soon arrive to see the Moss house and experience the legendary ‘Coke Lounge’.

Even better if Moss or a mannequin look-alike could be sat in the window of her 17th century farmhouse to seduce the punters to come inside.

As we say, it works for Amsterdam. As the Mail reports, the mighty Thomas Cook is offering family tours to that city and its famous red-light district.

The brochure advertising the tour says: “Begin with a drink at a prostitute information centre where a former prostitute will explain the system and answer any questions you may have. Then head for the Wallen (the red-light district) and see for yourself.”

And, as the Sun says, the tour is a bargain, costing £12 for adults, £6 for children under 12 and those aged four or under can go free.

And if you can make it a two-centre trip with the Moss Coke trail, so much the better value…’
