On what being a ‘real bloke’ really means.

James May, presenter on BBC Top Gear, doesn’t like the notion that all men are now meant to have a feminine side. He argues that being a ‘real bloke’ means you should be able to have a go at anything ‘including things we have now decided are on the girly side like reading the poetry of W B Yeats’. Is the true concept of manliness being undermined? Writer Tim Lott and James May join Jenni to define and debate.
