The Three Poshest People In The World

FT8 comments • 1,913 views

Not in the habit of reading the Sunday magazine in the News Of The World I have missed out on Diana and WWII commemorative plates, and napkin rings of the Pharoahs. Nevertheless stumbling across this august pamphlet yesterday, I was astounded to see an interview with Man At V&A Laurence Llewelyn Bowen on the subject of poshness. In particular this quote:

Q: Who are the three poshest people you can think of.

A: Dolly Parton: Because she has all her own skin
Charlotte Church: Because she eats crisps
Batman: Because he has great flair for interior design.

I need make no more comment. At all. Indeed I used up all the air for my comments on this nonsense on a three hour train journey. Feel free however to astoundedly comment forever on this subject.

    I am assuming the lack of astounded comments means you all agree with LLB.

    His arguments are very compelling.

    It had been left on the train.

    By the way, I think Russell Brand is posher than Batman, because he doesn’t care.

    Yes, but by that yardstick Duncan Bannatyne would be the poshest person in the world.

    This isn’t that interior designer, is it? The foppish one?

    It certainly is.

    I know his sister (she works as a rheumatologist at the same hospital where I work) but I’ve never met the “great” man himself.

    How do you know that Batman has great flair for interior design?

    Talking of design, I like the design of this website.
    Seeing as I have flattered you, can you send me an email about how to make a website like this?

    Sorry for my randomness.
