Excellent work from Julie Burchill
Madonna it was who, on being photographed with her ankles behind her head, uttered the immortal quote, "If I can't do something meaningful on a photo shoot, I'd rather do nothing."
So there you have it: putting your ankles behind your head - meaningful. Being a soldier - pointless, silly and bad . We pay for and train a professional standing army. If we didn't have them, we'd have to have conscription and/or national service. The liberal countries of Scandinavia and the lowlands seem to be able to do this without feeling compelled to invade Poland twice a year, but you just know that the Brits who moan about us having armed forces would bitch and whine about this, too - probably because they wouldn't want their darling little Ben and Jessica mixing with nasty tattooed proles.
