Actually, no, *Gill* said it. Sorry about the confusion, but we are not the
same person! (Or even avatars of each other)

Too true. But Uncle Ralph is a bit too obviously self-centred. Tone is all
surfaces. Perhaps one of the smug lecturers in TYOTG?

Or might she be an older Laurel?

How about a  nomination for Anne Widecombe?


For balance I'll mention a grown up Brid for Betty Boothroyd. For those in
the US etc Betty Boothroyd is the former speaker frequently heard shouting
"Order, Order!" and Anne Widecombe is pond life, oops thats not balanced
at all, I mean she's the shadow home secretary and not well liked.  <<

I like Brid for Betty. What about Robin Cook? Lots of possibilities in
Pratchett's "Truckers", of course.
