Media Monkey's Diary: Nigella Lawson, Peter Bazalgette and Keira Knightley

23 March 2014 5:07 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

✒ Last week's farewell party, or in effect funeral service, for the Press Complaints Commission offered a sad contrast with the Pcc in its pomp. Lord Hunt, one of several sometime chairmen and directors attending, wandered around with a tray of canapes as if looking for a new, humbler role. Solemn speeches were ill-advisedly backdropped by a slideshow rich in Pcc party snaps, including one of a former bigwig playing Santa Claus. All a far cry from the body's glitzy apotheosis, its 10th birthday party in 2001, when guests swigged champagne amidst display cases of jewellery at Somerset House and mingled with Prince Charles, Camilla, Prince An drew, Prince William and, for some reason, Donatella Versace. Bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, but to be regulating was very heaven.

✒It dragged on far into the night. Several of the participants rambled on embarrassingly or said stupid things. Almost everyone was drunk or acted drunk. »
