Wally of the Week

October 22, 2000

Lady Kate Gavron. Yes, its her again, the well-heeled, well-educated whacky vice-chairman of the Commission on the Future of Multi-Ethnic Britain. She qualifies with honours summa cum laude this week for suggesting that the Prince of Wales should have married a black woman (Why not Indian or Chinese?).

The Daily Telegraph says that Lady Gavron's other day-time activities include being a member of the Runnymede Trust's Commission on British Muslims and Islamophobia and chairman of Carcanet Press, a poetry imprint. Since none of this seems to constitute a "proper job", Lady Gavron presumably has plenty of time to busy herself dreaming up bonkers ideas to annoy the rest of us.

Of course, like the rest of her ilk, Lady Gavron runs on 100 octane hypocrisy. She says that "it is anachronistic and illogical" to hold a title that is passed on from your forebears, but not so when the title is passed on from your husband, who got it for giving £500,000 to the Labour Party. In effect, Lady Gavron is saying that the Prince of Wales should marry somebody chosen for him by a committee, focus group or politically correct organisation. Is she prepared to allow her children's spouses to be selected in the same way?
