There is a time in every child’s life, when they want to cut the apron strings and become more independent.
For my brother, it happened much earlier than for me, as I wanted to concentrate on my professional exams, as I could not really do a full day’s work in London, then study every night and run a house or flat. But, it did happen.
But now things have changed and there is money in the family; money I should add which has broken the family apart.
Verity believes that she is onto a good thing; she lives at home and has a very wealthy granddad whom she adores.
What is the incentive, therefore, for Verity to cut the apron strings?
Well, in my view, she needs to be away from the oppressive and tyrannical environment, in which she lives and to lead her own life.
She knows that she will never be destitute, not even poor but she seriously needs to rebalance her life because, at the end of the day, money is not everything; is it?
If she does not rebalance her life, then she will become like Paris Hilton or the daughter of Richard Branson; superficial socialites.
I do not honestly believe that is what Verity wants to be.
