The fabulous Joanna Lumley

I have always admired Joanna Lumley and regarded her as a bit of an intellectual as well as a fab actress - but now she is the people's heroine as well.

I think it should be completely obvious to the government that they should let all the Gurkhas stay - as someone said, if someone is prepared to die for this country they should certainly be allowed to live here (and the same applies to any other overseas soldiers).  And I think Ms Lumley is doing a great job of getting that across.

Therefore, ladies and gentlemen, I propose a toast:  please be upstanding for the magnificent Ms Lumley, Bluestocking of the Week.  And here's a toast to the Gurkhas too.  Please sign the petition to let them stay in the UK.

And I've just discovered that Camilla Parker-Bowles supports Ms Lumley's campaign too - so I nominate her to be a Bluestocking too.


  1. And I vote that we celebrate Ms. Lumley's new Bluestocking status by watching an Ab Fab marathon!

  2. Hey! Just so this:

    Joanna Lumley has helped to secure the rights of Gurkhas to settle in the UK.

    I consider this a victory for Gurkahs and Bluestockings.

  3. Yes, got the email from the campaign - great news!
