Woe to the society that eggs up celebrity and wealth. Shame on those who suggest to the impressionable, that pop star fame is superior to the 'day job', the Sunday Times for its Rich List, institutions (political, religious and other) for their obsequious attention to the affluent and for the tawdry truth that money can buy almost anyone.

Leonie Granger was about the business of love in a care home, within which could have been found the deepest fulfillment and the most profound joy.

Trapped by the very honey she sought to misapply, she begins 16 years in prison, Mr Hassan is dead and so many lives have been ruined.

Let us all learn instead to find jewels in the eyes of those we love, reward in the comfort we can afford others and wealth in the simple act of service. There is no greater recompense on earth.
