Murdoch may axe Page 3!

#1
Media mogul Rupert Murdoch has hinted on Twitter that The Sun's topless women on Page Three may be replaced with a "halfway house" of "glamorous fashionistas". He was responding to a tweet which said: "Seriously, we are all so over page 3 - it is so last century!"

Murdoch replied: "You maybe [sic] right, don't know but considering."

Campaigners against Page Three have long decried it as sexist while the paper consistently defends its stance.

The photographs of semi-naked women in the paper have been a staple of its pages for more than 40 years so it would be a huge shift in stance for Page Three to be dropped.

this should have been a summer story - you cant expect all those soon to be unemployed young ladies to protest outside parliament in this weather.

Some time in the early 80s, in a Div HQ command post. There was an AirTrooper reading the Telegraph. "I didn't know your sort read that, there is no page 3 in there you know? " says the Regt 2ic. "It don't go from 2 to 4 Sir look" was the reply.

I have never ever bought a copy of the Sun. I have never , ever looked at page 3. This is out of respect for my mother, my wife, my sister ,and my daughter. If you are numb-nutted enough to believe that old bollocks there is a job waiting for you in Vaticanshire.

That paragon Prezza apparently tweeted back that cancelling pages 1&2 and 4 to 47 would be a good idea as well. Heard it on the radio...I don't tweet, regrettably.

Daily Star will become the brickies paper of choice then - they then hand it over to plasterers to finish off
Have you got some sort of fixation with brickies.? Do you fantasize about being violated by a gang of thick, knuckle dragging brickies? Mind how you go, even brickies have got puters now. You can be found , you can be educated. Just a word to the wise.
