Tits out for Tony

Boobs against BlairPage 3 is back on deck… with a new message.

(Note – It’s been a while since I’ve reported on Page 3… for reasons that should become clear within a paragraph or two. Newcomers may wish to check out the initial report and sightings that followed.)

Last year, Page 3 underwent a subtle change, which was noted here, when – for the second time in 12 months – a Page 3 girl wept at Blunkett’s departure: Today, the only difference is Rebekah Wade’s recent design order that places more contentious views away from the model’s face

Further; with the exception of this contribution to Rupert Murdoch’s annual anti-secular Christmas campaign, Page 3 has been largely silent on the subject of politics since Rebekah Wade’s 90-day detention adventure (followed by Bloggerheads posts at such as this and this).

I get all sorts of strange looks from the locals these days, as I have a morning ritual that I adhere to strictly… I reach for the Sun and scan Page 3, before buying a copy of the Independent. I share this titbit of information with you to:
a) garner your sympathy
b) let you know that I have been paying attention, and can therefore speak with some authority on this matter

Now, lurkers with LexisNexis may wish to double-check my work, but as far as I am aware, there has not been a serious political message on Page 3 for the last 4 months and 12 days. (I seem to recall a bleat or two about crime rates, but for the most part it’s all been about the disgraceful/admirable behaviour of one celeb or another.)

Today, the message is back next to the model’s face, it’s very political in nature… and it is almost certainly not a message that has been drafted or approved by Downing Street:

Becky (24, from London) shows off her pert boobies as she tells us that politicians need to clean up their act if they want to get our votes. She then ‘says’; “The loans-for-peerages row has only made people question the work of the government more.”

Make of that what you will.

UPDATE (23 March) – More from Page 3 today, where topless favourite Keeley gets her kit off to claim that the budget shows how desperate Gordon Brown is to get into No. 10. She ‘says’: “He’s giving away money so voters back him. But is it a Budget on the never-never from a Chancellor who might never be PM?”

Tits and wit; a winning combination.
