  1. Says who ? .. and besides, this is a social issue being brought to attention … with humour. If we said “Oh dear me ! how crass is the page 3 tradition of breast display in the morning news” who is going to listen?

  2. I agree with you Mandy..each time I see that ridiculous pink van with its totally unrealistic,swollen looking and unappealing “boobs” stuck on the back I feel offended and annoyed. It’s an eyesore and adds nothing good to a day out in Byron – perhaps the crew who erase grafitti at the crack of dawn in Byron could erase that tacky crass little sleeze mobile on their round. How has whoever owns it, got away with the free advertising for so long – especially free advertising which exploits women and girls and makes fools of men – it brings us all down and is not beautiful, not clever or funny and is nothing but offensive and demeaning. I would like it go away.

Yes, they tend to be faster. This is great if you want to go thousands of kilometres in a matter of days. But they are also much more expensive.
