McCartney follows in Charles' footsteps

Paul McCartney's transition from rock and roll outsider to establishment full-timer is now nearly complete: He's dating Sabrina Guinness, who used to go out with Charles Windsor. (Years and years ago - it's not like the man who would be King was seeing loads of women behind Diana's back. He's not an ogre.)

As Guinness' name implies, she's from the family that made a fortune selling beer - oh, how the Queen Mum must have been crushed when Charles stopped dating her. The official line from McCartney is that everyone is just good friends, apparently.

The biggest "establishment full-timers" today are actually, almost without fail, people who still like to think of themselves as "rock and roll outsiders" (there is no longer such a thing in Britain: there *is* such a thing as a Eurodance outsider).

I mean, these days she's the one getting some new-elite kudos by association (the new elite despise socialism, but they despise aristocracy equally).
