    Re. Coren, goddess of the twisted flax, I highly recommend her book 'Once More With Feeling', the account of how she and a mate decided to set out to direct their own porn film. It's very funny.

    I don't know. I THINK I did as the show was about 40 mins long.

    I actally let out a big gay squeal when I turned to the last page of the Christmas RT and saw this. I wonder if the events of last week influenced the final design.

    [​IMG]

    I get "Yes, bitches, I'm still here" vibes from the photo, as if she's turned up at a Saatchi gallery opening with the hood obscuring her face, before shocking everyone when she unveils herself, possibly having smuggled in her Team Nigella army dressed as catering staff to slay the Saatchis, like in the Game of Thrones wedding. I bet she's got a kitchen knife strapped to her thigh.

    What a start to 2014.

    I knew that Coren knew from an old story in one of her columns. John Diamond used his post-surgery notepad to tell a boyfriend that had cheated on her to fuck off. :D

    Coren has basically been my role model since I was about 17/18 so it's lovely that she's getting such a high profile. I got the impression that she's a RIGHT filthy mare from her book though. I hope David can keep up.

    I've really enjoyed Nigella's performance over the past couple of weeks and I definitely sympathise with what she's been through in the past few months, but in the wider scheme of things I don't really have strong feelings about her either way.

    However, if she is both independently wealthy and from rich old Tory stock, surely the fact that she's a vocal supporter of the left is all the more admirable. Even if she's a total champagne socialist, there's still a lot less in it for her than most. I really can't see any rationale behind Peekaboo's trolling, beyond just classic contrarianism.

    I don't have much time for the term reverse-snobbery, because nine times out of ten, like 'reverse-racism', it's just the language of the privileged who are uncomfortable with their world views being challenged. But in this case it's really difficult to see it as anything else.

    Is Nigella actually a vocal supporter of the left? Apart from a comment that she didn't vote for her father's government and voted Labour instead I've never heard anything about her politics. I wouldn't expect her to be anything other than a social liberal but most people her age are.

    And as much as I love her, I'd be most disappointed if she was paying 45% tax and wasn't using the same sort of tax limitation schemes other wealthy entertainers do.

    Well either way, does Peekaboo have ANY valid argument beyond "She was born rich - ergo she's a cunt'?

    I don't know why I'm bothering to take his comments seriously really, they totally smack of trolling.

    Regardless of her politics, she's utterly fabulous.

    The blatant manipulation of the Times best seller list is the most shocking revelation to come out of the trial so far.

    are they?!
    why? I think it's admirable. Ricky Gervais and JK Rowling reportedly do the same, just pay what they owe, no schemes

    I was being a bit flippant about the tax avoidance, but throughout the trial it's been shown all financial matters are left to her accountants. The credit card use, the clear plastic bag of cash kept on top of the freezer, and no real knowledge from Nigella or Saatchi around how much is being spent on anything. I agree that JK Rowling's stance has been admirable.

    I don't have the facts but I'd guess that amongst people born the 1960s there are more who would be labelled as socially liberal than socially conservative.

    In the downtime Saatchi, vile scrotum that he is, has claimed Nigella has already had an affair with him whilst her husband was on his death bed.

    *sits back and waits for Peekaboo to storm in and claim what a disgusting homewrecker Nigella really is*

    The first Mrs Saatchi made the same claims years ago, which Nigella denied.

    The Vanity Fair article is worth a flick if you've got 10 minutes to kill in a WHSmiths.
