Boats We visited the Daily Express International Boat Show at Earls Court on Press Pre-View day and found Naval skin-divers braving the filthy water of the Cote d'Azur harbour for the benefit of the cameramen, a young lady all but falling into the same dingy harbour while demonstrating a pair of huge floating shoes to the Press, and the loud-hailer telling the Shop Stewards that they would be...
