Following the lead of fetching film seafarer Ioan Gruffudd, Emma Thompson (a.k.a. our beloved Eleanor Dashwood) has spoken out against Burberry's decision to close its Wales factory and outsource production to China.
Why, you ask, do we continue to report (ad nauseum some might say) about the ongoing Burberry brouhaha? One could argue that we only care about the ill-advised corporate decisions of that bastion of fine British apparel because it gives us a flimsy excuse to run ever more pictures of his eminent hotness, Mr. Midshipman Hornblower. In that case, you would be arguing correctly. -- Amy
