There is nothing like a Dame!

[The following is from a Scottish Government press release:]

Former Lord Advocate Elish Angiolini QC WS becomes a Dame in the Queen's Birthday Honours list.


  1. Alas, she find herself on the lower rung of the chivalric patronage ladder (alang wi that wee annoying lassie who sailed round the world and another 100,000 living people)...oh well, another eleven promotions and she can be Empress.

  2. Roughly, what is the pay for "Dame"? :)

    ....and do you have to wear a silly hat?

  3. A slap in the face with the flick of a wrist by the Anglo establishment for a sl@@@@r.

    What will her replacement get?

  4. "She is being honoured with a DBE "for services to the administration of justice in Scotland"."

    Anyone who doesn't understand what irony is should read that sentence.
