Daniel Frampton: Jeremy Vain and the ‘me, me, me’ brigade

A memoir isn’t worth reading if it doesn’t include at least one glorious cavalry charge or some gross act of sexual indecency. Unhappily, Jeremy Vine’s own effort fails entirely. His confessions, an extract of which was recently published in the Daily Mail, are certainly striking insofar as they surpass the accepted limits of banality. In […]

Daniel Frampton: What’s so wrong about men looking at women?

Laura McVey and Paul Harrison, both academics, recently co-authored an article responding to Sport England’s ‘This Girl Can’ campaign, which encourages women to be more active.

Daniel Frampton: The State has confused love with lust

In 1941, the writer J. R. R. Tolkien, author of The Hobbit, penned a touching letter to his son Michael on the subject of love and matrimony. In that letter, he disparaged the conception of ‘true love’ as ‘innocent’, of course, ‘yet irresponsible’. What Tolkien chose to emphasise, instead, was the ‘social ethic of plain […]
