Who ever said that Nanny couldn't laugh at herself?
Well, Nanny did actually.
It seems that Nanny and her friends, much like all dictators, really do lack a sense of humour when it comes to the "micky being taken" out of them.
Nanny's best chum, David Blunkett, has threatened legal action against a satire scheduled for the launch of Channel 4's digital TV service, More4.
The programme, called "A Very Social Secretary", is based on his affair with the Spectator publisher Kimberly Quinn.
It seems that Mr B does not see eye to eye with the producers of this show, and has tried to muscle in on production.
C4's chief executive, Andy Duncan, said that he has received "phone calls and written contact" from Blunkett and his lawyers about the programme.
Mr B has reserved the right to launch legal action to stop the comedy drama being shown on October 10, when the channel launches.
He has also claimed, in a letter, that whoever commissioned the show "must be weird".
What is particularly daft about Blunkett's huffing and puffing over the show, is that he hasn't seen it yet.
