Driss posts: "You can only laugh at the hypocrisy of the Daily Mail moaning about sex-crazed nymphs flashing their cleavage before the watershed. A quick glance at the homepage of the DM website shows the following photos:
-- Anna Friel in low-cut red dress -- Cher (the elder) and Cheryl in 'lingerie-style dress -- Liz Hurley in low-cut dress (and mention of her unsexy husband) -- Jordan and her ample cleavage -- Yulia Voronin in a bikini -- Jade Ewen in a bikini
Yet the DM displays the most appalling hypocrisy. Either a woman's not slim enough, or if she is slim then she's a slut, or else badly dressed; yet woe betide the woman who's not a size zero. Among the stories currently on the DM homepage: Is this ballerina too fat to play the Sugar Plum Fairy?
