No Sex Please, We're British

The Telegraph in the UK features an article on their web site about a "self-styled aristocrat" and glass-fortune heiress who will be doing time for entertaining the Lords and Squires in the hot tub:

A self-styled aristocrat who was convicted of harassing her neighbours by having sex in her outdoor Jacuzzi has been jailed for refusing to wear overalls to do her community service.

Julia Pilkington, 39, a member of the Pilkington glass family who calls herself "Lady", wore a miniskirt, low-cut top and gold flip-flops to carry out her community service clearing up litter from Forestry Commission land, a court heard.

'Lady' Pilkington claimed that the weather was too warm for overalls, although it's hard to imagine that any day in Britain would be too warm for a simple jumpsuit. I've seen a lot of people picking up roadside litter here in the States, but I don't think I've ever seen anyone doing it in a miniskirt and gold flip-flops. It might make for a good speed-reduction program if we could get some to start, however.

Nor wass this Pilkington's first run-in with her probationary officers. They've assigned her to different tasks, but she refuses to cooperate. For instance, they assigned her to work in a charity shop instead of litter patrol, but she refused to touch clothing that other people had worn. On another occasion, she failed to show up for her community service because she claimed her dog was sick, but the veterinarian refused to back up the story.

Pilkington originally got into hot water with the law by getting it on in hot water with her male friends, to the dismay and embarassment of her neighbors:

Witnesses said that Pilkington would appear naked in her garden and engage in sex acts in the Jacuzzi with male visitors. Neighbours complained that they could hear her experiencing orgasms. ...

At her 2002 trial Portsmouth magistrates were told that she used derogatory names to insult her neighbours, including The Pervert, The Slag and The Purchased Wife.

Well, here's another difference between the States and the Mother Country. Here, having sex in your Jacuzzi would make you the next Super Bowl halftime show headliner ...
