O tempora , o mores: what would Juvenal have made of Sally Bercow's sex toy?

I am having the experience people said they had when Diana died and the English went wild with grief, that they no longer recognised their country. 

Quentin Letts today in the Daily Mail:

Asked by 'Total Politics' magazine to name her favourite gadget, she did not, as some might have done, mention the Corby trouser press or the Teasmade. 
She opted for a certain type of battery-operated sex toy. Classy.

Michael Wharton could not have invented it (and anyway would have considered it much too rude for a family newspaper). Selwyn Lloyd and George Thomas, unmarried men, are spinning in his grave.
