Lily Allen’s expensive education has possibly still left her historically confused

This is what Lily Allen looks like

The Q&A feature in today’s Guardian interviews Lily Allen.

In it she claims that her earliest memory is of “watching the Gulf war on the TV news at two or three. I was terrified”.

Lily was born in 1985. If she is talking about the 1991 removal of Saddam’s forces from Kuwait she is way off and I must condemn her historical illiteracy.

If, however, she is refering to the Iran-Iraq war of 1980-1988 which is apparently sometimes described as the ‘First Persian Gulf War’ then she has an impressively sophisticated appreciation of history and I will eat my hat in penance.

Lily sings with a bit of a faux-proletarian accent, but she is honest enough in the interview to frankly admit that her parents spent £100,000 on her education.

It is revealing of the privately educated circles in which Captain Jako is sometimes known to mix that I know at least two people for whom Lily Allen was their first snog.
