At last!

(BBC Online)
Claire Curtis Thomas calls for a restriction on the sale of lads mags
Three things spring to mind here.

1) It will be interesting to see which fellow male bloggers mention this and what they think!

2) If nothing else they appear to be more boring than tittilating. Maybe it's just me, but I find hints and sophistication more sexy than basic so-called humour

3)Didn't a particular senior politician in his aim to get trendy and down with the kids have an interview with GQ magazine some weeks ago! And yet I didn't hear as much spluttering from Tories about that, compared to his appearing on Jonathan Ross, and that impertinent question Ross asked him which involved self abuse and Margaret Thatcher! But of course, the exploitation of your average skimpy clad model is different isn't it!

C'est la vie!

There are lots of other things which are more important and demanding of an MPs time than this. She should be fighting poverty or saving the NHS.

While she is at it she seems to have fogotten magazines like cosmopolitan etc or is it one rule for men and another for women?

I agree that there are better things to campaign against, in fact I would be among the first to argue that, but we should not ignore this issue completely and in any case I agree that this issue is cross gender
