Pinter and Joan Bakewell

Craig Brown in the Daily Mail 15 Oct 2010 imagines the diary entries of various people.  The parody includes Joan Bakewell.

"December 1, 1978 Joan Bakewell: Broadcaster and ex-lover of playwright Sir Harold Pinter

I am at home when a parcel is delivered. It is a set of blank pages. I recognise it as a new work by Pinter. To my horror, I recognise the silences as our own. They are all there, for the world to see. He has obviously decided to break the silence surrounding the silence. Can I ever forgive him?"
