Is she still a member of the Workers Revolutionary Party? For an old Trot, she looks pretty good.

Daphne: I suspect she and Corin still are but she has quietened down a great deal. One of the photographs had her looking hideous with a bouffant blonde wig - with her daughter. What were they thinking of?

Beautiful. Haha, I like Daphne's way of putting it, 'for an old Trot...'

The other day a friend and I were talking about women who age gracefully, and we were discussing what the media have done to fool women that, as we age, we're...uh...unsightly with wrinkles.

GG: I was watching Joan Rivers in close up on TV and it's weird seeing her face. Although she was feeling quite emotional, her face didn't move. She looked like a ittle old lady with a puppet's face.

I saw Atonement the other week and you're right about Vanessa's stellar performance. I wept buckets. She is truly remarkable. I can't remember though, is she a Dame? It can't be long coming if she's not.

And she still looks elegant and dignified unlike Joan Rivers.

Sam: she was awarded a CBE in 1967 but- true to form - refused a Dame in 1999.
