Incidentally, if you take this view vis-a-vis politicians, why so lofty a stance where Royalty is concerned? (They were not all thrust into their roles - the wives of princes could be said to have chosen theirs as much as politicians did).
And does the 'public life' test apply to journalists? If so, I have to tell you that readers will be questioning the legitimacy of diarists, and others, of the press. Return to your old standards, I beg of you. It may be dull, but it is honest.
