Marketing Week’s Diary really does have diabolically double standards. Jeremy Clarkson and Trevor Beattie get very different treatment in the hair stakes (MW October 22).
It appears necessary to refer to Clarkson’s tonsorial decoration as “frizzy”, yet there was no mention of Beattie’s curly, girly locks which make him so vulnerable to a wide variety of Seventies’ throwback jokes.
Are MW hacks too intimidated to criticise Britain’s leading “right-on” creative, or is it simply that the larger than life motoring correspondent is an irresistible target?
