I don't care how 'celebrated' you are, anyone who insists on travelling with their own olive oil, vinegar and salt packed capers has got to be an insufferable snob. It's time we called a spade a spade.

I personally believe that the general debt laden mortgage struggling public are tired of being preached to by white middle class ladies on the virtues of slow food and inadequacies of working class food choices and their children's food choices....if single working mums had the time to be indignant and throw battery farmed eggs at Alice, I'm sure they probably would.

Really what is the point of this woman other than making poor people feel bad and richer people feel smug?
