'A damned ugly old bitch'

Some Labour MP is in trouble today for calling a woman 'an ugly bitch'. Quel ennui. I can no longer remember which Edwardian peer (Liberal, I think) paid tribute on the floor of the House of Lords to which statesman, on his death, for being faithful to his wife 'even though she was a woman of no great physical attractions'. Thus stated the report in Hansard. What his Lordship actually said was, 'Even though she was a damned ugly old bitch'.

  1. Of course he should be in trouble.
