With dissident Tories and rallying Labourites, the pound plummeting, half the country pitted against the other, and something to do with Marmite, you’d think the Prime Minister has enough on her plate.
But no, just as Theresa May was getting down to some good, hard Brexit this week, what should interrupt her but a letter from Pamela Anderson? The former Baywatch star has requested a meeting with the PM, in a letter suggesting her fear that negotiating Britain’s departure from the European Union would distract from a cause that is simpler to tackle: the mistreatment of circus animals.

“One of the things that I love the most about the UK is its strong reputation as a nation that opposes cruelty to animals. That’s why my mouth dropped when I learned that Britain still has not banned wild animals from circuses.
“With all due respect, Brexit is complicated, but kissing circus animal acts goodbye is easy as pie. Animal acts are embarrassingly archaic and have no place in modern Britain – or anywhere else . . . I’m currently in the UK and would welcome the chance to meet with you about this issue.”
Something tells your mole that May has more of a problem with taming Foxes than lions.
