Clement's secret pain

from The Daily Mail

Former Liberal MP-turned-panel-game-host Sir Clement Freud found the Freud legacy was a 'hard mantle to carry', according to his daughter Emma.
Says TV presenter Emma - partner of scriptwriter Richard Curtis: 'He made a decision that he was not interested in being known as Sigmund Freud's grandson and worked hard to be someone in his own right. That meant Sigmund Freud was never mentioned or discussed in any way.
'My sister - like me - was educated at school by nuns and they asked her about him. She asked my father, who said he was the inventor of the flushed toilet.'
