KateBush1-522x348There will be much wailing in the suburbs but it seems that Kate Bush is a fan of prime minister Theresa May as she explained in a recent interview.

“We have a female prime minister here in the UK. I actually really like her and think she’s wonderful,” said the singer “I think it’s the best thing that’s happened to us in a long time. She’s a very intelligent woman but I don’t see much to fear. I will say it is great to have a woman in charge of the country. She’s very sensible and I think that’s a good thing at this point in time.”
