Despite the current economic gloom, the election of Mr Obama as President of the United States initially seemed to offer one green shoot of optimism, heralding a new dawn of equality and righteousness on this planet…
In the past, I had been under the impression that Prince Philip and the Queen Mother were a pair of ethanolic, gin swigging bigots, who entertained themselves watching recordings of trashy TV shows. I consoled myself that the heir and his spare were enlightened and in touch with reality. Clearly the royals continue to behave in a morally abhorrent and superior manner, treating those who they deem lucky enough to be in their circle with abuse and contempt.
How very sad. As an indication of my disapproval, I shall no longer permit the purchase of Duchy Original provisions for my household.
This country is truly in a bad way. Its public figures deeply superficial.
Yesterday, my perfect man announced that our super shiny Audi Q7 is to be sold! Apparently it is too conspicuously “bling” and its fuel consumption a scandal. From now on, I shall be confined to the damn eco-Prius “how incredibly fuel efficient” I shrilled through gritted teeth. James insists that we must be seen to seek value for money (OHMYGOD!).
In the recent past, I have made substantial cuts to the household expenditure (gasp). Just last month I insisted that Albena (the bulky Bulgarian housekeeper) purchase Audra the aggressive Albanian au pair’s food in the economy section at Lidl and I have turned off the heating in her room above the garage. Audra spends most of her waking hours working in our toasty home anyhow, since I fired the cleaner, dog walker, dog groomer, gardener, tree surgeon and window cleaner. The execution of her daily chores should be enough to keep her warm! Actually, I may turn the thermostat down at home during the day too; they can layer up while James and I are at work all day!
Entertaining in is the new er…”in”. May I offer you a drink?
I feel so deeply offended by the royals. How shocking that those in positions of power continue to demonstrate mans inhumanity to man (sigh).
Why not sit down and join me for an episode of Kimora on cable TV? I just adore observing her discuss complete trivia in earnest. What a hoot!
