Joan Collins: UK Riots 'A curse on Britain's yobs and slobs'

UK's The Daily Mail has printed another extract from former DYNASTY star Joan Collins upcoming book, "World According to Joan," in which she rails against the rise of yob culture and the loss of the good manners that once defined us as a nation.

Says Joan, "There are so many aspects of British life today that depress me: the decline in manners, the proliferation of badly dressed people, our obesity crisis, the lack of respect shown to our older citizens and the menacing yob culture that seems to rule our society, as evinced by the recent terrifying riots, arson and looting."

She goes on add, "My heart goes out to all the ordinary, decent people who work hard to make something of their lives for themselves and their children, and who pay their taxes uncomplainingly. They're the ones, as Marilyn Monroe once said, who are getting 'the fuzzy end of the lollipop'."

"World According to Joan" goes on sale October 6.
