Maybe 30 years ago, I was refuelling my car in Bracknell, where I was working, when I noticed a 30-something blonde woman struggling to refuel her own car at the next pump, the nozzle of the petrol pump not fitting into the opening of her fuel tank (probably because of a design precaution against filling a fuel tank with the wrong fuel.) After I’d finished refuelling my car I went over to her and we had this conversation:
Me: Good morning! I see you’re using the petrol pump, and having a problem. Is your car a diesel, by any chance?
She: No, it’s a Renault.
I imagine she’s probably an MP today, thanks to all-women shortlists. Well, they explain Jess Phillips MP, among others.
