Believing that civilized conduct can never be instilled at too young an age and that only those who have, sadly, left us need no longer aspire to the loftiest social heights, Morgan, the arbiter elegantum of our age, passes his inimitable judgements on behaving flawlessly from the cradle to the grave. Greetings, marriages, divorces, entertaining, sexual diplomacy, manners ont he moverand bereavement: all find their way under Morgan’s finely focused social microscope.

What is the correct way to eat asparagus? How do you use a mobile phone elegantly? What should you wear at a funeral? How should a hostess react when her dog attacks a guest? When do you use ‘Esq’? And just how does Mr Morgan achieve that perfect little dimple in his tie?
