Scrunchies are back! Those in the fashion know declare we must all be wearing the fabric hair tie if we want to look trendy and hip.
But wait. This is not about stepping back to the 80's when it was all about high pony tails and stirrup pants – though those are back too, and bum bags – you could go crazy with this. But no, to wear the scrunchie the 2017 way you have to go a little more devil-may-care.
Instead we are looking at a low pony tail, nay a nearly falling out pony tail, to which you attach your scrunchie. Basically the sort of pony tails girls sport after a long day at primary school running around in the wind.
And yes I'm all for it, for one reason – any trend that takes us back to our childhood can only be a good thing right now. Not because life was any easier or any brighter then – though you could make a good case for it depending on what decade you grew up in – but because politics didn't exist.
As a child you weren't bogged down by which political party was in power, what their policies were and how that would affect your everyday life. You had full trust in your parents or guardians to look after you and your life only reached crisis point when your Speak and Spell ran out of batteries.
Oh to have that same sense of oblivion today, as we continue down a political road we very clearly shouldn't be driving on. And yes, I talk chiefly of Brexit. It is one of those situations where really it is time to say - you know what, this is never going to work, we should call the whole thing off.
The latest news is Theresa May is planning to go ahead with the British exit without a trade deal. Are alarm bells not going off in anyone else's head? It would be all well and good if we could be confident the Government had a back up plan but I think that's just a little too much to ask for – going by recent experience.
Importantly, the Prime Minister has been questioned about whether she has been in receipt of secret legal advice that is believed to state parliament can stop Brexit at any time should MPs believe a change of mind is in the national interest.
Theresa May has tried to deny this but even Lord Kerr, who was involved in drafting Article 50, said back at the end of 2016, Brexit is not irrevocable. His words were “You can change your mind while the process is going on”. I'm not sure many members of the public are aware of this.
And if it's a matter of pride, well I don't think either Theresa May or the rest of the government, for that matter, need to worry that taking a U-turn on Brexit would somehow dent their public image. It's all a bit late for that. In fact I would say there would be mass jubilation should that be the headline we wake up to later this week – even amongst many of those who voted for Brexit - as it's not going their way either.
In the meantime I advise we all go out and buy a scrunchie. Then it won't matter if politicians continue to make a complete mess of our country, because we'll be playing My Little Pony.
