Hero of the Week: Angela Epstein
Wolf whistling should be a criminal offence. That’s according to one Poppy Smart, 23, who has complained to the police after she faced a “daily battle” with wolf whistling builders. What tosh. Angela Epstein has put Poppy in her place.
“When you reach middle age and your husband is more absorbed by the figures on the gas bill than your vital statistics, you crave affirmation that you still ‘have it’ (well, sort of). That’s why there’s nothing nicer than an appreciative wolf whistle from a passing male.”
Villain of the Week: Guy Parker
An ad campaign featuring a model in a bikini that asks “Are you beach body ready?” has been banned by the advertising watchdog following an online backlash from the feminazis, who say it belittles anyone who isn’t “skinny”.
Advertising Standards Authority chief executive, Guy Parker, decided to take action. The model says the feminist outrage is “contradictory”. The brand’s ambassador says it’s just feminists letting off bra-burning steam. They’re both right. Why has the ASA got involved? You don’t see fat men modelling Calvins.
Reader’s Comment of the Week
In response to Andrew Cadman: Cameron has missed so many tricks he does not deserve a second term as PM, david_kendrick wrote:
All true. And you could add the hugging of huskies and hoodies, gay marriage and the climate change bollocks. All designed to appeal to Guardianistas—who will never vote Tory anyway.
Does Cameron deserve a second term? Is that really the big question? Isn’t it more important to ask: Will a Miliband government be good for our children and grandchildren? Or will it leave them with ever more debt, and further entrench welfare dependency?
