Social stereotypes from the Telegraph Magazine


You'll recognize them immediately. You've come across them yourself or seen them in the papers: Hussein the minicab driver who drives a smelly H-reg Sierra and has a wonderful new short cut to Heathrow that takes twice as long as the normal route; Andrew and Leonora, the smug couple, with their helicopter and their housekeeper and their brilliantly successful children Nicholas and Flora; steely American businessman Crawford Nemesis III, sent from New York to restructure Worldcorp's London office and given to lecturing his fellow dinner guests on the importance of competitive recreation. And of course, Tiffany Zeitgeist, the party blonde, who sprang to fame by wearing a fake-fur thong at a film premiere and who now has a weekly tabloid column which she dictates on her mobile.;In this cathartic new collection of deliciously detailed social sketches, Victoria Mather and Sue Macartney Snape have English society, from top to bottom, off to a T. Perfect for the loo or the guest-room. Or slip it into your pocket to read under the table as Crawford drones boringly on.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
