Quote of the day

"Page 3 began in November 1969 when Sun editor Larry Lamb (the paper was at this point edited by a Beatrix Potter character) took a chance whilst Rupert Murdoch was out of the country and printed a photo of 20-year-old Stephanie Rahn with no top on. I feel sorry for Rupert Murdoch: his editors are always doing stuff without telling him anything about it. You’d think he’d have learned to get a tighter grip on the reins by now."

Richard Herring wades into the debate over Page 3, landing a few nice jabs at the Sun in the process - as well as publicising the fact that he encouraged lots of other men to follow his lead in tweeting a picture of his bare nipple to the paper to see how they reacted.
