That last post featured an image of Nicola, aged 44, from Glasgow, displaying her legs.
As The Sun might put it, "Phew, what a scorcher!"
Talking of which...
The Sun's Page Three has been a big topic at the BBC this week.
I've not paid too much attention to the row myself (being otherwise engaged), but even I've spotted that the BBC has been giving the story one heck of a lot of attention. [The usual suspect on Twitter (Jon Don & Hugh) have been active on the subject (taking the side of The Sun's opponents, of course)].
Some of that attention has been explicitly ideological. (Jane Garvey of feminist Radio 4 staple Woman's Hour (h/t Alan at Biased BBC) declared "It’s gone, we hope" this week.)
Some of it could be puritanical. (Unlikely at the BBC).
Some of it could be just the usual Murdoch-bashing. (Likely at the BBC).
And some of it could simply be because it's a cracking, ratings-grabbing, tabloid-like news story.
The BBC has become quite partial to those sorts of stories in recent years. It gives them the chance to get gorgeous Page Three models onto the News Channel - and Andrew Neil's This Week - to stand up for bare bosoms whilst, at the same time, disdainfully standing aside from them, tut-tutting...(which is just the sort of thing BBC types like to accuse the Daily Mail of doing).
This morning's Broadcasting House on Radio 4, naturally, couldn't resist adding to the Beeb's feeding frenzy on the story.
And who - standing firmly on the BBC's moral high ground - did BH get to wax indignant on the subject?
Clare - in true Carry On fashion - talked about "racks of newspapers". She also (less saucily) talked about "how degrading they are to women".
Paddy was keen to make a curious point about the former Tory MP Geoffrey Dickens [recently in the news over the 'paedophile MPs conspiracy'] posing with Page Three in opposition to Ms Short. [God knows what that was all about!]
Clare Short, of course, savaged The Sun.
Paddy quoted Matthew Parris at her in response. She disagreed with him.
Naturally, being a high-minded blog, we've gone for the BBC-approved image to accompany this post.
