This month's Prospect Magazine informs us that one in four lapdancers has a degree.
I am not sure why anyone should be surprised at this.
Apropos of that, I remember an old FCS poster from the 1980s showing a scantily clad young woman with the slogan "At £80 an hour, it's not me who's being exploited". I think it was designed to wind up the feminists around university campuses, and it certainly did the trick.
Happy days. Caroline Flint was one of the feminists on my campus at UEA who we used to rather enjoy winding up. She wasn't quite the glamourpuss that she is today. But I suppose, as head of the 'Wimmins' Group', Chanel Number 5 was a bit out of the question. My main memory of Caroline at university was debating with her one evening at the student union the subject of taking VAT off tampons. To her absolute astonishment I agreed with her on the basis that there was nothing 'luxury' about tampons.
I am sure my chum Eric Pickles will enjoy his jousts with her, just as I did 25 years ago.
