The ever-surprising Dame Joan Collins takes on the role of pundit today, decrying in marywhitehousian tones the plague of vulgarity on British television (Pot? Kettle called - you're black.).
What makes the column stand out for me, though, is this: "my great-grandmother was, of course, a Victorian, and so my mother was brought up with strict moral values."
Honey, my great-grandmother was a Victorian. Joan Collins's great-grandmother must have been positively Elizabethan.
