The Petard of Transparent Ego.

I read today that some actress or other from the mega-misery soap East Enders has been prosecuted for making a racially abusive statement. It seems she dropped a cigarette butt in the street one day, and when asked to pick it up she first replied ‘Don’t you know who I am?’ and then was alleged to have hurled the racist insult.

Well, today she was found not guilty and so we must presume innocence. And yet I can’t help feeling some nagging indecision as to which of her two alleged ‘offences’ should be considered the worst. And I’m not including the dropping of the cigarette butt.
