  Leather Trousers Thursday 2 May 2002  
In his new poem, Roger McGough appears to have identified a new social group - 'Mothers in Leather Trousers' (or M.I.L.T).

Once de rigeur amongst rock stars and fifties movie icons, is leather now being devalued by this "sisterhood of bottoms"?
Jenni explores with Professor Sheila Whitely and journalist Dan Cairns whether leather allows mothers to be both sexy and practical!
M.I.L.T. is included in Roger McGough, Everyday Eclipses, publ: Viking; ISBN: 067091262X, £9.99
