The Diary is…

The Diary is secretly rather frightened of freaky ‘illusionist’ David Blaine. The gory ear-cutting, uncanny telepathy and superhuman endurance… all that’s no problem, but Blaine is the spitting-image of the shotgun-wielding farmer who caught a young Diary stealing apples. Anyway, as readers are probably aware, last week Blaine was put into a box and hoisted to a point high above the Thames, where he will remain for several weeks without food. Homeless charity the Depaul Trust saw the irony in this, so last week it decided to hijack the launch of Blaine’s stunt with a giant banner. As the trust says: ‘Living in a box without food? Sounds familiar.’
