    "@CaravanClubUK Wow, St Agnes Beacon caravan site - apparently run by the rudest man I've ever had the displeasure of meeting!"

    Someone asked - what was her "crime"?
    Apparently she managed to drive the wrong way around the site... "cue small man - puce & shaking with rage "Are you BLIND?!"

    Obviously the apoplectic warden didn't notice the attractive world renowned academic, writer & tv presenter he was shouting at.

    :D

    Never heard of her. Could I be right in thinking she is one of those "celebrities" who think they are above ordinary mortals?

    I don't think so. You need to get out more. :)

    I don't think the phrase "do you know who I am?" is in her vocabulary. She's done a couple of programmes on various science/anthropological things and was a presenter on Coast. Kind of like a female Prof Brian Cox, but easier on the eye ;)

    If he'd insulted the divine Prof Roberts in my presence I'd have decked him then backed up and emptied the grey water tank over him.

    I am continually amazed that anyone should be even slightly shocked at any behaviour demonstrated by so many of the caravan club warders ( no that is not a mistake )

    Many of the warders are a disgrace believing them selves to be something special.. And members of the management team I have had the misfortune to deal with are little better.
    They bring a new level and meaning to the word arrogance

    This guy thought the warden was nice & friendly, but of course that could have been a different year.
    Anyway here's St Agnes Beacon CC site if anyone's interested, walking distance for us but I've never visited:

    You make a good point. Celebrities can moan at each other and that might be entertaining, but when they single out Joe Soap there is the danger they single someone out for bullying by social media.

    Remember that poor nurse in London who committed suicide after putting hoaxers through to Kate Wotshername when she was in hospital?

    Well we all make mistakes, perhaps she didn't realise she was going the wrong way? Does it give him the right to yell at anyone like that, for goodness sake its a HOLIDAY site isn't it??

    If you'd seen the photos of her & her vw camper stuck in the Glastonbury Fest mud - I doubt 'celebrity' would have crossed your mind...

    Judging a warden by one twit tweeting on twitter .. ?

    There are two sides to every story..

    If she had a genuine grievance, the Club is where to complain .. NOT social media..

    time she climbed down from her platform.. :rolleyes:
