DIARY: If you need someone for a speedy delivery, you can’t beat Knight

We at the Diary know, of course, how very versatile all you advertising folk are down at WCRS - Robin Wight tells us all the time. But, when one of our unceasing moles unearthed what the group board account director and BMW supremo, Steven Knight, was up to last weekend, well, you could hear the squirming all the way down to Mothercare.

We at the Diary know, of course, how very versatile all you advertising

folk are down at WCRS - Robin Wight tells us all the time. But, when one

of our unceasing moles unearthed what the group board account director

and BMW supremo, Steven Knight, was up to last weekend, well, you could

hear the squirming all the way down to Mothercare.



Dr Knight, as he is now lovingly referred to by all in Great Queen

Street, has romped home with Campaign’s ‘What not to do with your wife

on a Sunday morning award 1995’ by the simple expedient of putting on

his Dr Kildare white coat and stethoscope outfit and getting his hands

just a wee bit dirty.



Anyway, skating over the minor details, he and his ever-loving wife,

Tracey (who learned the art of quick delivery from the trenches at Banks

Hoggins O’Shea), were all set to have their baby in a hospital in

Beaconsfield.



However, the Sunday before last Tracey woke up with a few tummy pains

and, despite being a zillion months pregnant did not want to burden her

family with any unnecessary worry. Unfortunately, by the time she could

bear her agony no longer, neither could the baby.



Moments later, a bouncing nought-year-old named Beatrice arrived hotfoot

into the world sans doctor, midwife or any of the other services the

council-tax payers of Beaconsfield have come to expect. However, she did

have Steve, an expert in ultimate driving machines, to help with all the

pushing and shoving and wotnot that goes on at such occasions. We would

have asked who cut the cord, but the reporter fainted.



So, the Diary has to congratulate those training schemes down at WCRS.

Whatever they’re doing, they’re producing the kind of tough, dependable

people that the health service obviously needs.



NB: We all like happy endings and, in this case, mother and baby are

doing well. Steve has gone to have a lie down...
