I thank my hon. Friend for that. I wish it were not true, but sadly it is.

All we aspired to was standing in front of a mirror mimicking ABBA—I do not know whether my hon. Friend Jane Stevenson did that. We did not have pressure on us to be anything but ourselves; it is as simple as that. We had Jackie magazine. The images were not doctored in those days. If they were, I would be saddened, but they were not Photoshopped. There was no botox; they were natural images. I hope that I come from a generation that reflects that. We do not feel so much pressure to be something that we are not.
