just a dainty champagne belch of over-entitlement.

I felt the need to share.

I know, it is really tacky, a real Marie-Antoinette moment.

Guest Editor. One-off. Big difference. We're all talking about it, it's in the papers, and I bet that edition of the Big Issue is bought by plenty that otherwise wouldn't. Not tacky...intelligent PR to raise the profile.

Doesnt she (and Sting) have their own chef? Anyway they do own some lovely homes.

By that reckoning anybody who has just one home oughtn't to edit The Big Issue either.

wow Cogito, are there really lots of Trudie Styler fans out there who will buy the Big Issue on the strength of her name? grin

I had no idea!

I don't know about fans, but she certainly scores on curiosity value. (Confession - I have no idea what she actually does) In the past, they've had David Cameron and Richard Branson edit the mag. They're not Cardboard City residents either.

Here is the editor's letter in response

And apparently the DM were similarly critical...Bird's response to that article here .

I like that response. Bird makes them eat crow.
