The night club - if that is what it is - Movida has devised a £35,000 cocktail for Christmas. The first buyer, Max Reigns, a 'property developer', was asked if he could think of a better used for the money and replied, 'It's about the same as a holiday, isn't it?' Meanwhile, Princess Michael of Kent has told an American - uuugh - who put his arm round her that , 'We don't do that.' Searching for a link for this, I discover that HRH has a web site. It makes Jeffrey Archer look like Soren Kierkegaard. Princess Michael - why is she called that? - is well known as the rudest, most snobbish member of the upper classes. This makes her, of course, a national treasure. But the ponder is: which is the better way of being rich - the Reigns way or the HRH way? I think I should be told.
