Have I missed something? In one of the newspaper magazines this week-end there was a whole page of slippers for the winter. The cheapest was just over twenty pounds, the most expensive between seven and eight hundred pounds.
What use are slippers I ask myself. As far as I am concerned they have but one, very important, probably the most important of winter, use - to keep my feet warm and to be comfortable.
Does it not seem to you, as it does to me, that even contemplating the fashionableness or otherwise of such a lowly fashion item when there are thousands of children starving and where even in our country foodbanks rear their ugly heads in most towns, is perverse?
