MICHAEL GOVE used anti-Semitism as a stick to beat Jeremy Corbyn in a blistering attack on the Labour Party leader this week. Yet like so many other important issues it has effectively been kicked into the long grass while all the attention is on Brexit. It’s also too important to be used for political point scoring. Anti-Semitism is by no means confined to the far Left — you will find examples on both extremes of the political spectrum and indeed all across Europe. Some of the very worst are happening online. These days far too much of our social media is like lifting up a stone and exposing a frightening, destructive, poison that darkens your very soul. I’ve spent the past few weeks grimly muting* some of the more offensive inhabitants of the Twittersphere who went on the rampage after I offered my support to Countdown presenter Rachel Riley and actress Tracy Ann Oberman.

For adolescents blessed with willowy good looks, the fashion world offers the prospect of glamour, celebrity, and wealth. But this, for many, is what the beginning of a modeling career can actually look like: On her first test shoot as a 15-year-old, Dasha Alexander said, a photographer held a camera in one hand and digitally penetrated her with his other — a move, he explained, that would make the pictures more “raw” and “sensual.”When Coco Rocha refused to get naked on set as a 16-year-old, she said, the photographer replaced her with a girl who was younger and more obedient. Months later, a famous photographer simulated an orgasm as he took Rocha’s picture.By the time Lenka Chubuklieva was 17, she said, an agent had repeatedly groped her, a photographer had thrown her on a bed and kissed her, and another photographer had masturbated in front of her and threatened to ruin her family in Ukraine if she told anyone.“If people really understood … [Read more...] about The fashion world promises glamour and wealth.
