Just had a thought - what about Mary Beard? She's been so strong in the face of some vile personal attacks and even though I don't agree with what she said on Question Time, she has every right to say it without facing the bullying she's had to endure. She is obviously highly intelligent and an expert in her study of the romans. I like her a lot. Very dignified lady.
I like her too - she has a human touch and a sense of humour which makes her programs entertaining as well as informative. I don't know what she was on QT but it seems she gets flack for daring not to glamourous or trying to look beautiful - a cardinal sin often in the eyes of the media - but as a scruff myself I rather like her for that.
