My friend George Parker doesn’t like it at all – but then George has been musing recently on things of beauty like the tattoos on the Kate Moss derriere, executed by Lucien Freud in the back of a taxi, it seems.

A thing of similar beauty the above clearly is not and it’s caused a rather predictable online stir. But I quite like it (he whispers).
