The Senate election campaign is in full swing. Literature is pouring through the door. The process of election of candidates to the Irish Senate is complicated and extraordinary; those of us eligible to vote are inundated with paper. I came home one evening during the Easter holidays to find that the Princess had taken it upon herself to grade the election literature based on grammar, syntax and style. None of the candidates has got more than an A-, you will be disturbed to hear. And she hasn’t even considered the content.
