What currently annoys me is the so-called celebrities, such as but not exclusively Carol Vorderman, and Alan Titchmarsh. Both spouting the benefit of leaving money for you family to pay for your funeral because of the rising costs.

They are paid very highly for such advertising, notwithstanding that they are owner occupiers with hefty bank accounts. Indeed, Titchmarsh lives
lin a massive home and grounds in a rural idle which he purchased around 5 years ago. Home owners all know that all bills, any debts and funeral expenses are paid out of your estate!

One must therefore assume the obnoxious proclamations of celebrities must be aimed at non owner occupiers

Rest assured, more to follow.

like Al Pacino advertising coffee,Federer advertising countless things,the list goes on,Do they never have enough money these self proclaimed gods. I make a point never to buy anything they get paid a fortune to spout about. Stlll,since we`ve had TV in the uk,early 50`s,the celebs were spruiking . Wilfed Pickles is the earliest one I remember,pushing some liniment for lumbago. "Not mooch foon is it?,," his catchphrase,and it did catch on. He was a likeable soul,but cashing in on the advertising goldmine neverthe less.

I wouldn't want to be a celebrity nowadays and I don't blame them for maximising their income because it can be a short-lived career, especially if they dare to express an opinion!

Proper celebrities are OK by me. I am quite certain some celebs these days have an answering machine programmed by their agents only to say “yes I’ll do it!

Everytime I see some trailer for a one to one discussion/interview with someone from a loathsome reality TV show, which I never watch, about their struggles in life but they have come out the other side a stronger person. Well you get the drift, I mutter to myself “who on earth gives a damn!”

Michael Parkinson who has amassed a nice wee fortune over the years, and who owns property in Australia, feels the need to top up the coffers advertising life insurance that gives you a free pen, and now Yorkshire tea. Oh c’mon please, get a life.

My next whinge is the white elephant that is HS2. With so much poverty in the UK, homeless people and all those folk in the past two weeks who have lost everything they’ve worked hard for through some of the worst flooding, and not for the first time. Now some cannot afford insurance since their last flooding, and some have no insurance at all again because of the cost. Surely, the government can give hefty sums to these people and scrap HS2!

Watch this space my whinging will continue!

Lady Isobel Barnett, always thought she was an elegant well spoken woman.
