Julien Blanc, Did We Give Him Too Much Publicity?

Posted on November 25th, 2014 by

I did a BBC radio interview the other morning with BBC London. It’s a serious talk show with Penny Smith and Paul Ross; they were debating the merits or otherwise of Julien Blanc being denied entry to the UK. My view was that we were right to ban him. There was precious little time to air the arguments one way or the other on live radio, but for what it’s worth here are my thoughts: I am sympathetic to the

Posted on October 14th, 2014 by

I’ve been a supporter of the No More Page Three campaign since it started (check out this early interview with one of the founders, Lucy Ann Holmes). No More Page Three is a campaign group committed to removing photos of bare breasted women and girls, (posing provocatively on page three each day) from a best selling daily U.K. newspaper.
