"@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 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 ;)

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?

Exactly, she was still driving the wrong way whoever she is

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:

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??
that does not give them the right to shout at people. we are customers. and on our hols. without us they have no reason to live.
But did the warden shout, yell &c? A tweet (especially phrased as it was) is only hearsay, not evidence :) It seems the only part we can rely on was her own admission that she was in the wrong :)
We've stayed on several CC sites and never once had any problems with wardens, the exact opposite in fact.

The info came from another female archaeologist, her words to me were that "I've worked with her ,she's a dyke " if she has a husband then perhaps she is bi ?

I didn't think she was an archaeologist either.. perhaps it's a different professor Alice Roberts..

I do sometimes volunteer for archeology projects and her name came up in a recent conversation about the time team series , I find going on digs hard work but enjoyable ,being a man I often get the mattock work ,last one I worked on we were researching salt pans in the middle of a field in Lincolnshire , miles from the sea. I was not having a bash at her sexuality ,it may have came over that way but it was not intentional.:)
