Judith Keppel’s Attitude

April 27, 2011

Couldn't give a shit, could I?

As the nation hurtles, like a Mercedes Benz in a Paris underpass, into an event of Great National Pride, RoT feels that it’s high time to revisit an event of Great National Pride from the proud past of this great nation. It’s the year 2000, and the country is gripped by a quiz show in which one must answer only fifteen questions to win one million pounds. This is significant because British people love millionaires – especially millionaires whose roots are tainted with coal dust, like the Middletons. Judith here breezed through her questions, showing everyone that she knew Eleanor of Aquitaine was married to Henry II. But, really, who doesn’t know that? However, things took a nasty turn, perhaps uniting the nation even more tightly than the crowning of their first television millionaire (before tax). It emerged that Keppel was already rich and – to the horror of all – third cousin on Camilla Parker-Bowles, murderer of Princess Diana. The glare of the media nestled on Jude’s shoulders, and her weird bottom lip. And how did she choose to react? Well, much in the way that she did upon her victory – with a small shrug and a smug, know-it-all smile. She even took the steps of writing a piece in The Spectator (always unwise) bemoaning the crumbling of the aristocracy. And then she went on Eggheads, where she was hardly as knowledgeable as Daphne or CJ, and continued to shrug and smugly smile every time she got a question right. Or wrong. Judith Keppel: RoT loves your balls.

Verdict: RoT owns a copy of Judith Keppel’s Ultimate Quiz Book. What she should have written is Ultimate Ways to Piss Off the British Public. Because she did it perfectly. In fact, if Judith Keppel had a daughter of a convenient age, RoT thinks that Friday’s events might be unfolding in quite a different manner…
