I was somewhat surprised to read that Bennetts seems to be taking equal opportunities for a ride in its quest for "hot grid girls" from the insurance industry as per your article (Backchat, 18 January).

Surely beauty is a thing to which we can all aspire, men and women.

In the interest of balance and fairness, sometime in the future I would hope to see you publicise a similar search for male 'hot hunks' from the insurance industry, maybe spreadeagled on the bonnet of an Aston Martin?

We ladies need our distractions too!
