Aga Update

(See earlier post of 10th November 08)
In his column in The Guardian this week, George Monbiot launched his own one man campaign against the Aga. Railing against its carbon output, he stormed 'I've lost count of the number of aspirational middle-class greens I know who own one of these monsters and believe that they are somehow compatible (perhaps because they look good in a country kitchen) with a green lifestyle'. So the iconography remains as potent as ever.

Meanwhile Aga shares fell 10 per cent on news that the firm, having already cut 400 jobs, would be announcing appreciably lower profits for the second half of 2008.
