I don't usually bother to share too much Amal news here, but this really made me laugh:

[size=48]Londoner's Diary: Dating site uses Amal Clooney pic without permission[/size]



[You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
Amal Clooney: human rights lawyer, wife of Hollywood star George, mother-to-be and... member of the dating elite? The Doughty Street Chambers barrister’s achievements seem endless but she may be surprised at her new role as poster girl for the unlucky in love. Indeed, she might be considering her legal rights over it.
Yesterday a new double-decker bus ad was spied on the streets of London, from new dating app The League, with a 10ft-high picture of Clooney and one of The Only Way is Essex’s Amy Childs, the beautician who brought the vajazzle to the masses. The slogan reads “For those seeking drive, not just double Ds”, with arrows pointing to Clooney and Childs. 
The League, which requires a vetting process, says it is a smarter version of Tinder. “Are you told your standards are too high?” the website reads. “Keep them that way. We’re not saying Tinder doesn’t have its uses but why not spend your time a little more… intelligently?”
But using someone’s image usually requires permission. Has Clooney granted it? The Londoner was awaiting a response from her people this morning and Childs’s team have also yet to respond. The League said it was “unable to comment” on the issue of permissions but that the intent  was to be “a lighthearted jab at society’s obsession with dating based on looks and fame  as opposed to ambition and intelligence”. 
The incident calls to mind a problem with a campaign from Ryanair back in 2009, which royally peeved Queen Sofia of Spain by using her photo in an advert. Either way, the campaign from The League already has critics. “Amal Clooney fights for the rights of women,” Twitter user Sophie Marissa wrote online yesterday. “Irony lost on your marketing dept?” What would George say?

Very Happy  Way too many cheap shots could be taken here, so I won't. I will say, though, that they could have found a better photo of her. Unless,of course, she's just the "drive" part of the equation and not the "double D's". (Sorry. Couldn't resist. It was just too easy!)
