An offensive and ill-judged piece in the Sunday Times by a journalist who seems to be keen to move away from the property section….

Rosie Millard asks “What is it that is so irritating about estate agents?” and goes on to rail at some length about those involved in the business. “The too neatly pressed suits, belying an innate reluctance to leave their overheated offices and plod around a dusty house? Or perhaps their chavvish cars, badged up beyond sense with silly catch phrases?”

If the Sunday Times have just contacted you about next years advertising rates, you may want to show them the full article and ask if they feel that journalistic independence isn’t perhaps being stretched here just a little too much. Better still, leave a comment for her.
