Fat Lady sung





RIP Clarissa. Now there's no 'Fat Ladies' left...

“We have been eating [butter] for at least 2,000 years and if it were killing us in large numbers I think we'd have realised by now: or died out. But we haven't done either.”

"I would have no objection to eating badgers. I have no objection to eating anything very much, really. Staple food of the population, well before rabbit because rabbit was a luxury food.”

"A lot of people don’t stand up for principles now. I believe we should fight for what we believe in. If you don’t, it’s cowardice. If I put my life at risk, so what.”

“I once had two people attempt to mug me and they both ended up in intensive care. I can handle myself.”


Clarissa Dickson Wright (24th June 1947 – 15th March 2014)
