This has been a week in which we have come to see a few things in a new light. According to Hilary Mantel, Kate is made of plastic. It also transpired that we’re eating quite a bit of horse, and in Amsterdam they have abolished the word ‘allochtoon’.
The same Kate who takes off her clothes at inappropriate moments and the same Hilary Mantel who thinks Thomas Cromwell is actually quite a good guy. Personally, I think Hilary Mantel has a plastic hairdo, but you can’t please everyone.
Horse meat turned up everywhere, in lasagne as well as in steak. The guests at a renowned Amsterdam restaurant, which has been serving horse steak since the end of World War II, still kept on ordering.
So Arnold has growing doubts about taking things at face value.
