Why do the models look morbidly underweight, like concentration camp inmates? Matchstick legs are positively off-putting, I suggest. I can't imagine what the appeal is supposed to be. Hasn't the fashion industry become like the dog breeding industry, so distant from reality that it can't see the harm it's doing to those involved nor the bad example it's setting?

Norman Tebbit's possible UKIP defection?

Is the Willy first to notice this by Norman Tebbit in the Telegraph, responding to commenters: "I was glad to hear from my one-time supporter in Chingford, [commenter name], but sad that he like so many others has been driven to go over to UKIP. I understand why, and nearer to polling day I will offer my advice to voters… but not just yet."

By the way, it's a little dark but at the bottom left of this picture you can see a building that people have built in their garden, as many people are doing, with a view to leaving it for four years, which they think is the time limit for planning objections, and then no doubt turning it into a rented hovel. Boo. (Annoyed of Willesden).
