The triumph of trash over respectful social restraint

Gentle reader, not for the first time, we call your attention to the French expression “Plus ca change, plus c’est la meme chose.”
This is usually translated as “The more things change, the more they are the same.”
This truism was brought to mind once again as we have been reading a book detailing the life of Henry Temple, Second Viscount Palmerston, 1739-1802.
He was the father of the Third Viscount Palmerston, 1784-1865, who was Queen Victoria’s Foreign Secretary for 15 years and twice her Prime Minister.
