I used to have these dreams about being a career woman. I wanted shoulder pads,
briefcases and mobile phones. I wanted designer clothes and a flat which had wooden floors
and white sofas and enormous bowls of lilies on every polished fruitwood table. I wanted
a Mercedes sports car and chunky gold jewellery.
Unfortunately, life in PR is probably not the best way of going about it because PR seems
to be one of the worst paid professions in the world. I know what I should have done, I should
have gone into the City, because I graduated at the tail end of the eighties boom, and I could
have made a mint, but I never had a very good brain for money, or numbers, and I would have
been hopeless. And PR seemed like the easiest option. It sounded glamorous, exciting,
and I wouldn’t have to start as a secretary, which I was loath to do, because I would hate to
have people asking me what I did for a living. In PR I was able to start as a Public Relations
I answered an ad in the Guardian, and I went along for the interview. The offices of Joe
Cooper PR were in a back street in Kilburn, not the most pleasant of areas, and from
the outside it just looked like a big warehouse, but inside it was magnificent. A huge loft,
wooden floors, brightly coloured chairs and velvet cushions, and a constant buzz of phone
conversations from some of the most beautiful people I’d ever seen in my life.
And I looked completely wrong. There they were, everyone in jeans, super trendy T-shirts
and big motorbike boots (which was the look at the time), and there I was in my little Jigsaw
two-piece cream suit, with matching high heels and a briefcase clutched in my hand to look
more professional.
I remember thinking when I walked in, ‘Why oh why didn’t I research this before I came,’
but then Joe Cooper came to shake my hand. ‘You must be Libby,’ he said, and as soon as
I met him I knew I’d like him, and, more importantly, I knew he’d like me. And he did.
And I started next week on a pittance, but I loved it. God, how I loved it.
Within a month, all my friends were green with envy, because I was already on first name
terms with some of the hottest celebrities on TV, and I spent my days helping the executives,
typing press releases, occasionally babysitting those celebrities on their excursions to radio
and television shows where they plugged their latest book, or programme, or film. And I was
so excited, and I met so many people, and my Jigsaw suit was placed firmly at the back of
my wardrobe as I dressed like the others and fitted in.
My social life is swings and roundabouts. Sometimes I’m on a social whirl, out almost
every night, grateful for the odd night in, watching television and catching up on my sleep.
But then everything will slow down for a while, and I’ll be in every night.
I talk to Jules every day, about five times, even if we don’t really have anything to say
to each other, which we don’t usually, because what news can you possibly tell someone you
last spoke to an hour ago? We usually end up talking nonsense. She’ll phone me up and say,
‘I’ve just eaten half a packet of biscuits and a cheese and pickle sandwich. I feel sick.’
Or I’ll phone her and say, ‘I’m just calling to say hi.’
And she’ll sigh and say, ‘Hi. Any news?’
‘No. You?’
‘Okay, talk to you later.’
Jules is my sister, my friend, my touchstone. Not that she is, of course, she just feels like
it, and Jules is the wisest woman I know. I’ll sit and bore her with my latest adventure,
and she’ll listen very quietly, wait for a few seconds when I’ve finished before speaking,
which used to bother me because I thought that she was bored, but actually what she is doing
is thinking about what I have said, formulating an opinion, and when she gives me advice
it’s always spot on, even if it might not be exactly what I want to hear.

If prime-time television is a social barometer, then we’ve become a nation of petrified
parents afraid to stand up to our foul-mouthed, hyperactive, kicking and screaming children.
Even if the media exaggerate the problem to grotesque proportions, giving in to children
seems to be a modern disease.

8.1. __________ Let me tell you a few of my own. Recently, I sat in my back garden
watching a child repeatedly spit at and kick my daughter Imogen while his mother ignored
him and sipped her tea. When I mumbled that maybe she could ask him to stop, she merely
said: ‘She obviously upset him. He’s very sensitive.’ On another occasion, when the same boy
pushed a child, his mother rushed to his defence: ‘Oh, why does he always get the blame?’
But then I shouldn’t cast stones. I started out as a naive mother with a Penelope Leach baby
book to hand. From this I took the message that if I was cuddly and loving, that would be
enough. 8.2. __________

It is ironic that the country that once swore by ‘spare the rod and spoil the child’
and ‘children should be seen and not heard’ now resounds to the noise of whines and tantrums
in every shopping centre. 8.3. __________ Linda Blair, a clinical psychologist, claims that
they fear offending their children. ‘We want children to be our friends. But we would help
them to be more independent if we stopped over-indulging them.’

Some would say the rot set in during the 1960s and 1970s, when trendy parents were
reluctant to do anything as ‘heavy’ as scold their children. After detailed studies of families
in the 1970s, the American psychologist, Diana Baumrind, identified three types of parent:
authoritarian parents, authoritative parents and permissive parents.

Suddenly, permissive parenting was seen as damaging. Children of authoritarian
parents were often discontented, and mistrustful. Only authoritative parents stood out.
8.4. __________ Principles of authoritative parenting are outlined today in many books,
on websites and on telephone helplines. So why are we still raising badly behaved kids?

Scientists are developing the world’s first DNA and tissue bank to preserve thousands
of animals 9.1. __________ extinction, in an international project called the Frozen Ark.

are secured, to be used if the species 9.3. __________ out.

in West Sussex.

some scientists are 9.5. __________ about cloning because nobody knows now what these
specimens might be used for in the future. Dr Anne McClaren says that the primary motive

‘I think Noah would have been proud of this project.’
