Fatboy Slim

You might have noticed that I can gain or drop a lot of weight in the week which passes between publications of my RG columns! In light of this I'm changing the by-line of my column to 'Opinion by Fatboy Slim'.

Today's photo (if you read the print version) is my alter ego - stern chubby Christian. Last week, was happy slim Christian*. This way people can't spot me on the street, it's very helpful. Maybe the editor uses stern chubby me to go with certain columns and happy slim me for others. It helps set the tone.

* Stern chubby Christian is a file photo taken in July for the 2003 election, while happy slim Christian was taken a couple of months ago.
