FUR PROTESTS AT BURBERRY!

The minute Otis Ferry, the pro-hunting star of the current Burberry campaign took to the runway tonight, so did a trio of fur protestors, brandishing their paper placards directly opposite Anna Wintour. The Milanese security were singularly slow off the mark in responding in comparison with their British or French counterparts, who are wont to smother the furious interlopers in fur blankets, aptly enough. But this is the quintessentially British brand, after all and by invading the Houses of Parliament in an vain attempt to get the hunting ban lifted, Bryan Ferry's son has keyed into a very British debate. Shame for the protestors that this was a Spring/Summer collection and there wasn't a scrap of fur to be seen!

    Slightly off topic, but I've noticed that a lot of the PETA demonstrators at shows seem to slip all the time. Are the runways really that slick?
