…downton abbey, 2014…

…indeed, life now imitates art…

We have a trade union leader holding forth on the unwholesome direction of inequality in Britain, when she is interrupted for the presentation of  ‘breaking news’. We let the Independent (some freebies, then paywall) guide us, Live TV coverage of union leader’s warning about ‘Downton Abbey’ society cut off for news on Duchess of Cambridge pregnancy

Live television coverage of a speech by Frances O’Grady, General Secretary of the TUC, was cut off this morning minutes after she had warned of a return to a “Downton Abbey” society –  for a newsflash announcing that the Duchess of Cambridge is expecting her second child.

On this no suspension of disbelief needed. Upstairs Downstairs is back, officially.

…nothing like irony…
