I used to work with a French bloke, who was not only amazed at the British recipe,of fried bread, but the fact we had teenage knockers, on the page 3 of some newspapers! And they were allowed at 16 years old, at the time! I have never seen this in any other part of the World! Now that ancient Rupert Murdoch, has decided to stop this peculiarly British folly, was there any harm in it? At the time I thought it a rather silly British thing like smutty seaside postcards and Carry On films! I can't congratulate any that this is now stopped! I'm very mixed about it! :o It's possibly an infringement of freedom, and self censorship is the worst of all! Obviously you can still find "real porn"!

It's a bit tacky and had had its day. I haven't actually seen it for years as the handful of times I have bought The Sun in the last couple of decades it's been the Saturday one to read on the way to football and that doesn't have the Page 3 that there is in the week. Tbh I thought it had already ceased.

I'm glad the many feminist campaigns didn't stop it because it's no more harmful IMO than Carry On films, rather that the paper itself decided to, um, draw a veil.

Well, if they make the right/wrong decision, it will be reflected in the sales figures.

I'm sure it is something they have thought carefully about.

Maybe the one thing people don't think about is that the Sun, IMO, is a much better paper than the Star and the Sport. The Sport is just nonsense and the quality of journalism and stories in the Star is just truly awful. The Sun at least has some serious news stories in it and political opinion, even if it is rather basic and simplistic.

So now there will be no option for someone who wants page 3 plus basic news stories. They will have to buy two papers, maybe the star and the new sun/mirror.

I couldn't help feeling that the recent campaigns to get rid of it seemed a bit like locking the stable door after the horse had bolted. I'm told the internet provides you with all kinds of stuff these days at the click of a button, all light years beyond page 3 nudity. Maybe indeed 30 years ago, page 3 encouraged young men to look on women as commodities or something, but we're way past that now. No need to open a newspaper, just get your girlfriend to send you some self-made porn for you to share with your schoolfriends.

I think it is funny though how the anti Page 3 lot have been appearing on the media today saying that the battle is not over - couldn't help thinking that they are miffed as they no longer have Page 3 to be angry at.

Apparently they are now moving on top stopping photos of women in bikinis or underwear appearing in papers and magazines.... so that won't just be the tabloids then but also the broadsheets? Is it Page3 they hated or just the tabloids?

They are sounding more and more like ISIS with all their censorship demands aren't they?

You seem to be carrying on the Carry On theme, Mr P. :lol:

Perhaps instead we'll end up with bint of the day in a burqa?

Mr B 'll be miffed if that happens. He currently subscribes to Guy Speed and gets a rack of the day everyday.

You do wonder how much this is to do with appeasing people who think that women should walk around in black sheets.

I don't want British bawdiness to disappear under a load of PC sh!t! :blink:

I doubt that the Sun gives m..n.keys toss about the views of some left wing feminist harridan.

It's all about sales. If sales dip, the nudes will be back.

AND

Just why do so many women want to get their tits out for page three?

This.

Funny listening to the loony tunes they interviewed on the news trying to take credit for it though.

You can't assume everyone thinks like you!

Anyway, how are ball-bearing sales holding up this week? Any inside tips for us?

Until a couple of years ago you could pick up a 16 year old prostitude in Lausanne or Geneva and it was all entirely legal. As for France, you can buy hardcore in the local newsagent and they even show porn on terrestrial TV so I guess page 3. seems a bit tame. BILD also used to have a page 3 girl, stopped in 2012.

Perhaps Theresa May should show us the way. I much prefer the fetching blue ones you get in Afghan.

In France you can go to the beach and see teens tits for free. For real.

What is the recipe for fried bread? Surely just bread, fried?
