Why should a size 20 or 30 girl not be able to go out and buy the same clothes that her size 10 friends can? What good do we expect to come from it? We have had specialised plus size clothing stores for over a decade now. Has the world buckled and conformed to traditional healthy BMI standards? NO. Is the situation actually worse than ever now? Apparently so.

There's a crumpled old lady, taking the late afternoon air on the steps at the entrance to the abandoned mansion. 85 rupees to show us round, she says. That's about £1.50, and, as with the temples we've visited over the last weeks, we must take off our shoes and leave them at the entrance.

Becky Hopper

Why is it that every portrayal of abortion on my TV screen is a negative one? Reality check... Abortions can be a positive thing too and considering one in three women in the UK have had an abortion, I would say there's a pretty high percent of the population who would agree with that.
