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.

New Year's Honours

Lady Bracknell is exceedingly pleased to note that the sculptor Willard Wigan (about whom the Editor wrote this entry for the Ouch blog in April) has received an MBE in the Queen's New Year's Honours list.

(It took many minutes of detailed examination of the full list of honours for the Editor to happen upon Mr Wigan's name on page 94 of 95: clearly - unlike Rod Stewart - he is not considered to have sufficient celebrity to merit being included in the lists of well-known persons whose names adorn our news headlines. But, then, neither was Bert Massie, despite having been knighted.)

Mr Wigan (and Lady Bracknell's Editor) will now be able to purchase, for a mere £15, one of these charming and aesthetically-pleasing British Empire emblems to sport on his lapel on occasions when he feels that the medal itself would be somewhat de trop.
