Paxman, Blyton and a nun's beauty contest

I took time off from privacy to write a short, intended-to-be-mischievous piece about Paxo's lament for the middle-class white male for the Telegraph yesterday.
Inamidst gags about underpants and the BBC's policy on curly hair, I was rightly taken to task by one of the commentators on the Telegraph website for pointing out I have a picture of me with straightened hair on this website. 
Mark Culley you are right - that's how deeply the BBC affected me that I still straighten my hair to this day.....But that's another piece

Kafka, a hedgehog and privacy

I've written a column for the Telegraph today making reference to this new report I am co-authoring for Ofcom and RISJ. In the piece I debate our changing ideas of what is private and what is not with reference to the author of Metamorphosis and his savings book.
