Article excerpt

It must be really boring being born into a world of money and privilege - why else would these women behave so badly? Clearly, the meek don't inherit the earth: the naughty do-

After receiving community service for sustained harassment against her neighbours, Lady Julia Pilkington, 39, turned up to clear a forest in miniskirt and flip-flops.

She refused to work in a charity shop and has been jailed for breach of sentence. The Pilkington glass family is worth [pounds sterling]200 million but Julia bought her title and she certainly doesn't behave like a lady.
