Mr Smith goes to Blockbuster

- or should that be "bonkbuster"?

Devotees of classic Hollywood will know of the movie, "Mr Smith Goes to Washington", in which James Stewart stars as "a naive man [who] is appointed to fill a vacancy in the US Senate. His plans promptly collide with political corruption, but he doesn't back down", to quote from the Internet Movie Database.

Seventy years on, and in an older, tired, democracy, the consort of the Home Secretary and her parliamentary aide made use of her allowance to obtain blue movies, as the Mail on Sunday reports, in her official second home.
