Perhaps Madge was a little light headed after a strenuous afternoon at the Ashanti or maybe she was having a bash at a bit of po-mo humour. But then her wit and wisdom does tend towards the eccentric.
Witness her comments after acquiring a country house, "I love horses, I think I may have been one of Henry VIII's knights in another life".
