The Independent — possibly the wokest of Britain’s news outlets — has recommended Iran as a top destination for solo female travellers. Is this some kind of cruel, sarcastic joke perpetrated at the behest of the Independent’sSaudi investors?
Or does this excuse for a former newspaper really, genuinely believe that Iran deserves a spot on its International Women’s Day list of “best female-only trips for solo travellers”?

But the subsequent #boycottNike campaign never really took off. And, as a result of the ad, Nike’s sales increased by 61 percent, boosting the company’s value by $6 billion.
Perhaps it’s true that in advertising there is no such thing as bad publicity. Whatever you think about those Gillette ads, it is currently the world’s most talked-about brand.
Personally, I’m now going to go out of my way to avoid using any more Gillette products if I can.
But it might not be as easy as I’d hoped.
I was about to subscribe to a company called Harry’s Razors, which delivers shaving products by post.
