I find it fascinating, the amount of coverage and gravitas, given to somebody's opinion on the basis of what they've done, regardless of whether they have any relevent experience to add to the debate. Bono and others waffling on about the vast untapped record market of Africa. The eye candy and faux actress Sienna Miller flapping her chops about the enviroment and so on ad nauseum.
I suspect that Ms Mantel is merely showing how jealous she is of someone earning more then her through being good looking.
I must say though that Ms Mantel is worth two of the Duchess of Cambridge, in fact I'd go further and say that by volume or weight the figure rises to three or four.
I am married to a redhead and I am also easily led after a few beers. However, one has to draw the line somewhere. The amount of alcohol required to make me say yes would in fact render me unconscious before I could do anything.
