Just seen a picture of her on BBC website, she isnt the rubenesque brunette I was thinking of, another fantasy saved!

Legal action prevents me from making any comparisons to an animatronic character from the Jim Henson stable.

I dare say her legal eagles will find there way here soon enough. With one "victory" under their belt I would expect them to be trawling the internet sniffing out any more dissent.

Looking at Gina Ford's web site, the FAQ seems to be very defensive. Some may think that the court threats are all about money, and protecting future book sales, but maybe the legal action was purely because she felt that she was being misunderstood and misrepresented.

see Sunday Times issue 13-08-06. Sombody has dared..... good on Justine Roberts ( News Review - 4-9 PARENTING)

A lot of similarities come to mind ( without prejudice)
- John Kennet, well known Rib expert..... without a boat..
- Codprawn , well known Rib and nautical expert... for some
considerable time .. without a boat..

and of course the one and only (******)-----expert on child upbringing---- without a child.... and of course the latest one

- a deputy PM with an empty portfolio . The list goes on and on...

If I remember correctly, not only does John have a boat, but it's an inflatable one as well. It's just not very rigid!
