Pregnant Meghan enjoys ill-timed night out with ISIS bride

THE Duchess of Sussex is under fire after enjoying a night out with Serena Williams, Jessica Mulroney, and ISIS bride Shamima Begum. 

Meghan had the 19-year-old flown from Syria to New York’s The Polo Bar, a favourite of celebrities, for a four-course dinner with friends including Victoria Beckham, Michelle Obama and Suits co-star Abigail Spencer. 

A source close to the Duchess said: “Meghan’s been reading all about the jihadi bride and just naturally felt sympathetic to someone who’s been given such a hard time in the media, like herself. 

“Plus, with Shamima having just given birth, albeit in a refugee camp on the border of a war-torn nation rather than the Lindo wing of St Mary’s Hospital, they’ve got a lot in common. 

“Meghan knows exactly what it’s like to feel like a stranger to British traditions and to need to find your own place here, so she’s really been giving Shamima some useful advice on how to fit back in to UK society.” 

The seven-month-pregnant Duchess of Cambridge looked resplendent in a tailored navy wool coat with tortoiseshell buttons, while Begum wore a tan Givenchy trenchcoat with nude suede heels and her trademark headscarf. 

Following dinner the friends went on to nightspot 1 Oak where observers claim Begum flirted and exchanged phone numbers with actor Timothée Chalamet.

Michael Gove's guide to running a post-Brexit farm

GOOD morning, I’m Michael Gove, and as you’d expect I know everything about agriculture.

Farming will be very different after Brexit, although I forgot to mention it before the vote. Here’s how to survive and prosper after leaving the EU.

Grow new crops

I’m no expert – thank goodness! – but I’d recommend a crop of triffids, known for their high-quality oil. Just remember to wear goggles and for Christ’s sake shut that gate.

Look forward to your exciting new subsidies

Replacing CAP subsidies shouldn’t be a problem with my colleagues who are rabid free market loonies because after Brexit we’ll be rolling in cash. Also you can count on the Conservatives to get the money paid efficiently and on time.

Sell more food to Britain

Farm exports to the EU could be disrupted for a while, so just sell more food to your notoriously vegetable-loving fellow Britons. Nettles, abundant in the UK, are perfect for soup, tea and zingly nettle crisps.

Consider diversifying

Why stick with boring old cows and chickens now we’ve gone global? Try raising haggises, the tiny, hairy offal creatures much sought after north of the border, or flood your fields and begin farming lampreys. Mmmm, lampreys.

Find other uses for your land 

Crop rotation doesn’t have to end with cereal crops. Why not, every fourth year, use the top paddock for a high-tech manufacturing facility making TVs and smartphones?

Replace Eastern European workers with ‘Pick your own turnips’ signs

As a child I loved picking my own strawberries, often managing as many as six before getting bored. Make up for departing EU workers by allowing families to pick a lovely sack of muddy turnips for tea, and trusting in their post-Brexit honesty for payment.
