    My, now isn't that special?

    It sounds like she might have even been the model for Dana Carvey's Church Lady character from "Saturday Night Live."
    Here's Church Lady with Justin Bieber (my apologies for the quality of the vid)

    As Billy Connolly once said of her ... "I wouldn't be too happy either if my name rhymed with toilet"

    There is a certain amount of evidence linking TV & film violence to real-life violence. A woman once did cut her daughter's heart out after watching 'Exorcist 2' and the cannibal killer Jeffrey Dahmer was believed to have been affected by watching 'Silence of the Lambs'

    I have always thought of Mary Whitehouse as one of those people who write to readers letters section in the newspapers as "Mrs Angry from Slough" Always complaining; no matter the subject just moaning about anything

    The sort of person who writes to tv producers saying "A 3 year old child might have been watching" My answer to that would be "Why is your 3 year old child not in bed at 11pm?"

    She would have a field day these days & I am sure she would have taken up the cause about violent computer games

    As has already been said she should have been taking care of her children or better still she should have been sterlilised so she couldn't concieve any as she was obviously an unsuitable mother. Where were social services in all of this?

    Do you really believe the other side without provocation would launch so many ICBM's, subs and ships knowing that we would have no option to launch as well? It would break our MAD Treaty (Mutually Assured Destruction) not to mention the end of the world as we know it.

    A similar film to Scum is Scrubbers on which Pam StClement (Pat Butcher Eastenders) appeared on as a borstal officer

    Two girls escape from an open borstal for two very different reasons; Annetta to attempt to visit her baby daughter, who is being raised in a convent; and Carol, who hopes to be recaptured and sent to a closed borstal where she knows her girlfriend Doreen is being held. Carol's plan works, although she is devastated to find that not only has Doreen found herself a new girlfriend inside (who both taunt and tease Carol), when Annetta is arrested at the convent and sent to the same closed borstal, she assumes it was Carol who "grassed" her up and proceeds to plan her revenge. Carol finds protection in the form of inmate Eddie, while Annetta's constant bullying attempts keep her in solitary confinement; however, Carol's world is turned upside-down when Eddie is released from bortsal and her protection is gone...

    When I was little I used to get Mary Whitehouse and Barbara Woodhouse mixed up all the time.

    True story!

    Most probably she was Amethyst & that makes her a hypocrite as well as a busy body
