Laurie Penny’s New Year’s resolutions

From this point forth, I will only snog men who own at least two pairs of shoes, and who have not lived for more than one week in a skip in Camberwell. In today's choppy financial waters, a lady can't demand actual employment, but one must have some standards. I shall also be giving up gin, reading the complete works of Karl Marx, and no longer stealing all the little sugar packets from train station cafés. Because I'm sweet enough already.
