The feral beast: Morgan all coy over Campbell

The diary can report a bit of a first, an enchanting outbreak of bashfulness from former Mirror editor Piers Morgan.

<i>IoS</i> letters, emails & online postings (15 August 2010)

Thank you, Janet Street-Porter, for sticking the knife into Naomi Campbell over her disgusting and disrespectful behaviour in court the other day (Editor-at-Large, 8 August). Had any normal person behaved in such a manner they would probably have been held in contempt. I'm sure all those in Africa who have had their limbs hacked off found it rather "inconvenient" as well. May I suggest that she takes some of her vast fortune and buys some lessons in basic manners, which she seems to be devoid of. I hope other people put the boot in as well, so that she might feel some shame in her actions. No doubt she will hide behind her legal team and will carry on with "her life" unconcerned.

Rhiannon Harries: 'Naomi Campbell really does have the oddest attitude to presents'

It was Linda Evangelista, one of Naomi Campbell's fellow supermodels, who claimed not to wake for "less than 10,000 dollars". Two geezers at the door bearing diamonds, we learnt last week, are what it takes to rouse Campbell from her Egyptian cotton sheets.

State villainy carries on in the world because high-minded leaders can let go of the moral principles when the time, cause or the price is right

Editor-At-Large: Naomi's been crass, but what did we expect?

In the case of Naomi Campbell, does an undisputed commitment to charitable causes balance glaring personality defects? A few years ago, when Kate Moss was crucified in the tabloids over cocaine use, I pointed out she was a supermodel, not a role model. The job of supermodels is to persuade us to buy a bit of whatever glamorous myth they are well rewarded for promoting.
