The collected opinions of an august and aristocratic personage who, despite her body having succumbed to the ravages of time, yet retains the keen intellect, mordant wit and utter want of tact for which she was so universally lauded in her younger days. Being of a generation unequal to the mysterious demands of the computing device, Lady Bracknell relies on the good offices of her Editor for assistance with the technological aspects of her journal.

Stop Press: Celebrity BADD Endorsement

It would appear that Lady Bracknell's editor has been less than entirely frank with her employer about her extra-mural interests. Ordinarily, such secretive behaviour would very probably have led to a reconsideration of the editor's contract of employment at Bracknell Towers. However, Lady Bracknell is not inclined to take any action which might be detrimental to the success of Blogging Against Disablism Day (BADD), and has therefore decided to show lenience on this occasion.

Unbeknownst to her employer, the editor has been engaging in electronic correspondence with Mr Richard Herring. (Lady Bracknell, who prides herself on her ability to keep abreast of modern trends in theatrical entertainment, has included a link to Mr Herring's website from this blog from its inception.)

The editor, reasoning that Mr Herring has long demonstrated a laudable degree of support to disability equality issues, and is known for being rather a decent sort of chap all round, drew his attention to BADD and asked whether he would consider writing something in support. Never one to shy from a challenge, Mr Herring has provided his own inimitable spin on BADD in the 28th April entry to his never-less-than-entertaining Warming Up pages. For which efforts he has earned the eternal gratitude of at least one elderly and enfeebled aristocrat.

Below is a photograph of the editor and Mr Herring taken about ten years ago at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe. How young they both look! There is, however, a somewhat eerie degree of physical similarity between the two, which causes Lady Bracknell to ponder on the question of whether her editor has yet to be entirely open and frank about her life prior to her current employment.

Who is Mr. Herring? I am unfamiliar with him...

Mt Herring is a stand up comedian of not inconsiderable fame. Please follow the link to his site. It is extremely comprehensive. And "Warming Up" - as Lady Bracknell intimated earlier today - is highly entertaining.

What a nice man, your ladyship to give his approval of Miss Goldfish's excellent cause. However Miss Katie hasn't yet thought or come up with a suitable entry for the Disablism day but rest assured she will find something.
