Apples not falling far from trees

As a listener to various Radio 4 programmes, I’ve heard Carol Thatcher being entertaining on a number of occasions. More than once I pondered how hard it must have been for her to step out from under her mother’s evil shadow. Oh well, so much for that thought. Apparently Ms Thatcher compared professional tennis player Jo-Wilfried Tsonga to a golliwog , and then refused to issue an apology, resulting in her being fired by the BBC.
