    As the Greek finance minister said to his colleague;
    “I’m sick of belt tightening, pain and humiliation. I’m off to watch Fifty Shades of Grey…”

    By the way, what is it with this new Victorian Age? FSoG is being labelled abusive; British Labour’s pink bus is apparently ‘demeaning’, The Sun’s Page Three girls are ‘unacceptable’, Barbie Dolls are 'gender stereotyping', Winnie the Pooh is off limits without pants… the 'Emmanuelle' series from the 70s would cause a storm of outrage…

    Is this societal claustrofobia the much hyped 21st Century, or the new Victorian Age albeit for different reasons?
