VERITY LUSH: Spending squillions to point out the blindingly obvious

Have your say

My mate had a little booklet posted through his door the other day about home insurance and inside was this really bizarre section called ‘Carol Vorderman’s Home Insurance Cost Saving Tips’.

Her tips involved the usual stuff about shopping around for quotes etc but I can’t understand why she didn’t include the most obvious home insurance cost-saving tip.

So come on Carol, if you really want to cut your home insurance bill, get the heck off my TV screen!

It’s been around in the same format for years so I think it’s time it was changed and improved a bit.

I’m thinking that perhaps we could bring a fourth object into the game, but it would have to be something you could represent with your hand.

Any suggestions? Mine would be the ninja star. You could impersonate it by spreading your fingers wide like the points of the star.

I’ve just had an idea to boost the economy around Christmas. Forget all that ‘quantitative easing’ where the Bank of England prints notes and floods the economy with them.

Not only will it boost the economy, but kids won’t be eating it, so it’ll help with the childhood obesity crisis!
