For over threedecades, this men-only affair at the Dorchester Hotel in London has been attended by businessmen, politicians and bankers, and it raises millionsfor charity. This year, thefiNaNcialTimeshad two women workingundercoveras hostesses, and theoverallpicturethat emerged was decidedly more sordid than charitable. Ahintof what the evening might be like was given at their ïrst interview: the girls were instructed to wear blackskimpy outïtswith matching black sexyunderwearand sexy shoes. Theywere forewarnedthat the men might be ‘annoying’ or try to get them drunk, but they were unprepared for therelentlessgroping, sexual harassment andlewdpropositions that followed. The verdict seems to be: too much testosterone in the room. And gentlemen beware; bad behaviour is now more difïcult to get away with!

Pope FRancis’s VisiT To IReland is esTimaTed aT20 million
Ireland is no longer the bastion of Catholicfaithit was when it had its last papal visit, in 1979. The Church hasbeen wrenched intomodernity by the scandal of its crueltyto mothers and their childrenborn out ofholy matrimony, and the paedophilia of its priests. On a more humane level, divorce is no longer a crime and homosexual marriage is possible. But the sense of rebellion hasn’t vanished. No one is against Pope Francis, but they are balking atthe cost of his visit, estimated at awhopping20 million. Even the Church is trying to persuadewealthymembers to donate hugesumsof money, and one journalisthas suggested that the Vatican shouldfoot the bill!
