If, like Toady, the mere mention of Anita Roddick is enough to make you run amok with an aerosol, find room in your heart for Ian McGlinn. Ian McWhom? Well, 16 years ago, McGlinn put £4,000 into a teensy, Littlehampton-based concern called the Body Shop: today, he, like la Roddick, is worth lots and lots of distinctly non-biodegradable pounds (£160 million of them, to be precise) as a result. There, however, similarities cease. While the green queen agonises over the use of windmills to power her (obscenely profitable) factories, McGlinn spends his annual £837,680 dividend - £200,000 up on last year's - happily depleting the ozone layer by driving a £76,000 Mercedes 500SL between his yacht and the expensive hotels for which he has a penchant. His views on the environment, too, show no marked similarities to those of St Anita. In a recent profile in the Daily Mail, McGlinn enquired "Who the hell are the Amazonian Indians anyway?", pointing out that you probably can't make soap out of them. Damn right, too, says Toady. Enough of this namby-pamby, 2CV-driving eco-nonsense.
