Is The Daily Telegraph trying to creep page 3 girls into its pages?

So far this year, Crikey has counted nine days where the Tele has used a picture of a woman in a bikini, underwear or otherwise very scantily clad as the main illustration on page 3 of the paper.

    What about those of us who wanna see Rupert in a pair of budgie smugglers?

      Nah, just more smut about him and his clan.

    “In Australia, it’s not a tradition we’ve seen broadly catch on, ”

    The Daily Mirror in Sydney (owned by News Limited at the time) had page three girls in the 1970’s and 1980’s, I believe using the same format as the UK Sun in the same period.

    The only use I have for this type of paper is to line the kitty litter tray, and that is if it’s actually made it’s way into this household, generally left unread it’s used for in a true indication of what is written within most of the pages. Which is what any sensible person would do?

    Oh really!
    Must they panda to such base urges?

      How much can a panda bare? With no apologies to Austen Tayshus.
