Rachel Stevens Is In Court Three
Steven is just doing his Wednesday morning disco and it’s reminded me of a story from back in 2011 that sums up the craziness of Planet Social Care for me.
He’s just been listening to Rachel Stevens singing Sweet Dreams My LA Ex. In his almighty catalogue of lookalikes, Steven thinks that Rachel looks like Sophy Miles, the official solicitor who represented him in court.
In my Dennis Potter style fantasy for Get Steven Home – The Movie, I have a scene where Sophy bursts into song as she pleads with Justice Peter Jackson that Steven’s Article 8 Human Rights have been breached.
Later on during the disco, Steven played The Beautiful South song “Good as Gold”. That brings up a less happy memory. In 2007, we were visited at home one day by Whistlers Mother. She asked Steven how he had been. Steven replied: “Steven Neary has been as good as gold but as stupid as mud”. I explained to her about the song. She was very interested in the stupid as mud bit, so he told her that he had thrown water at next door’s cat whilst we’d been in the paddling pool earlier. That led to a long discussion about the appropriateness of using a paddling pool at 16. More reports. More concern.
Two songs. Two women. One with a heart. One with a timebomb.
