Self-confessed cricket-nut, Mr Mick Jagger, is looking for a house in Barnes. Now, I like Barnes – it’s a bit like a village, without Village People – but I’d find it hard to imagine Jagger would want to live so far away from Lord’s. I mean, it’s at least 40 minutes. With all the money he has, wouldn’t he be better off living closer to St John’s Wood?
On similar lines, my friend recently met Jade Jagger, Mick’s daughter. I still hold out hope that one day I’ll be able to interview Mick and grab m’self an exclusive! So Mick, if you’re reading, gimme a bell and I’ll buy you a house-warming pint in Barnes.
