Having been named Celebrity Mum of the Year 2011, Foxy Bingo and Stacey Solomon have enjoyed a close working relationship in the past year, including the Foxy Mum of the Year campaign; a nationwide search to find Britain’s best real-life mum – which Stacey launched last month. However, following stories in the newspapers in recent days, Foxy Bingo has taken the decision to sack Queen of the Jungle and X-Factor singer Stacey from her position of judge on Foxy Mum and from the voting shortlist for Foxy Bingo Celebrity Mum of the Year 2012. Apparently this is because she was caught smoking on camera… Stacey has apologised to the people at Foxy Bingo and is sorry and embarrassed as a result. FOXY Bingo understands Stacey is doing all she can to stop smoking and in recent times she has cut back dramatically. They say she’s disappointed but accepts Foxy Bingo’s decision. Foxy Bingo would like to place on record its thanks to Stacey for all her efforts so far on the Foxy Mum campaign. FOXY Lady Drivers Club would like to place it on record that it has nothing to do with FOXY Bingo or Stacey Solomon. But, from an outsider’s point of view and with a FOXY opinion as always, this does seem a tad harsh on Stacey. Coming as it does from a gambling website? FOXY Steph

Female judges from eleven countries (two in the UK) have submitted their own personal shortlist with the aim of identifying the ‘car of the world for women’ in 2012. They all share a professional automotive background with a few racing drivers and journalists in there for good measure. Some 300 models were then whittled down to form a female friendly list of 32 cars in terms of global popularity and judges are now required to allocate points per car by criteria… Clearly these are ‘female industry’ oriented awards (ie family car, luxury car, sports car and economy car) more than ‘female motorist’ lifestyle motoring awards (as in first car, motoring mums, business women, solos perhaps) but one important concession to women this year is the criteria called ‘child friendliness’ because women are more likely to have children in their cars than men. Presumably this won’t penalise scores for (most) sports cars… Twenty female judges are now finalising their secret ballot votes to be collated by Grant Thornton in New Zealand. The car with the most points in each category wins that category award and the vehicle receiving the most votes overall will win the 2012 Women’s World Car of the Year’s supreme award. The awards will be announced later this month and involve the following shortlisted models. ECONOMY CAR VW up! Kia Rio Kia Picanto Honda CRZ Honda Civic Mazda 3 Skyactiv Ford Fiesta Econetic Hyundai Accent Diesel FAMILY CAR Ford Focus Audi Q3 Kia Optima Subaru XV Mercedes-Benz B-Class BMW X1 Mazda CX5 LUXURY CAR Range Rover Evoque Mercedes-Benz C-Class Audi A6 Bentley Continental Audi A7 BMW 6 Series BMW 3 Series Peugeot 508 Jaguar XJ SPORTS CAR Porsche 911 – 991 Jaguar XKR Audi RS5 Renault Megane III Ferrari FF Ferrari 458 Spider BMW Series 1 M VW Golf R Lamborghini Aventador Mercedes-Benz SLK Mercedes-Benz CLS AMG Despite running a motoring club for women I must confess I don’t know all and haven’t driven many of these cars. Sadly I am clearly not in the income bracket for most of the luxury or sports car contenders… Having said that, I am surprised to see the BMW 1 series in the Sports Car category, we’d certainly have voted Mazda’s MX5 in there, the VW Up is too new for us to comment and we’d have added some more mundane GM, Renault and Citroen models given the opportunity… But if marketing and feedback in the UK is anything to go by, a foxy tip would be to back the Range Rover Evoque as the most likely candidate for the most votes and to become the supreme female success car story in 2012. Keeping her insider knowledge close to her chest, Women’s World Car of the Year ‘s Sandy Myhre (from New Zealand) admits “In past years it’s been quite hard to tell at this stage what cars have a good shot at winning the overall title but this year it’s evident that at least four cars are definitely in the running.” We’ll keep you posted about the outcome of course.

How much did you say? Dear Mr Cameron Please remember that many foxy ladies are formidable female voters who can potentially secure or lose you your political future. And that too many are struggling to balance the family budget and have yet to realise that their critical car insurance premiums are set to soar later this year, simply because they are female. This could well prove to be a tipping point for motoring mums and daughters when it comes to voting time. In a nutshell, if anyone thinks equality means fairness for females, please think again. I’m talking about car insurance costs come December 2012 when HM Government is allowing car insurers to charge women the same premiums as men, having been told to do this by the EU, in the name of ‘equality.’ By ‘equality’ they mean that women drivers are to pay more for their car insurance than male drivers. Despite statistics confirming that young women, in particular, are considerably safer and less accident prone motorists than young men who account for 98% of dangerous driving convictions and cause the majority of fatal and serious road accidents. But isn’t motor insurance supposed to be about underwriting risk and rewarding no claims experience? I had always thought so but clearly not. Otherwise I know which gender I’d prefer to underwrite from a commercial point of view. On the contrary, this ruling allows insurers to ignore risk, to reward testosterone-prone boy racers with lower car insurance premiums and to penalise women drivers of all ages by requiring females to pay more than in the past and to contribute towards the cost of accidents we didn’t cause. This might be called ‘gender equality’ in the EU but it certainly isn’t fair on women drivers in the UK. Shame on you, Mr Cameron and your Office of Fair Trading lawyers. You know it’s unfair on females and that women drivers paying more for their car insurance are purely transferring money from stressed family budgets into the coffers of allegedly ‘poor’ motor insurers. Whatever happened to the logic of underwriting insurance on the basis of risk? Which is why women drivers have been paying less for car insurance than riskier male drivers for as long as I can remember… But say farewell to fairness for females in future as soon as it comes to motor insurance premium hikes that are on the horizon from December onwards. Fortunately there is still time to fend off this discrimination before it starts to cost you female votes Mr Cameron… FOXY Steph FOXY Lady Drivers Club is the female voice of motoring.
