HuffPo Abreast of Page 3

Guido has been greatly enjoying the Huffington Post’s coverage of I’m a Celebrity, in particular their entire posting “Helen Flanagan Shows Off Weight Loss As She Strips In Jungle Shower (PICS).” Not even the Mail would also include a gallery of 29 “Almost Nude” shots that leave Page 3 looking like a walk in the park. Talking of the Sun, it seems the lefty liberals over at HuffPo are hardly consistent in their policy:

How long before they join their US counterparts and have a whole section of the site devoted to “sideboob”?

UPDATE: HuffPo UK Editor Carla Buzasi is very passionate about this subject:

There’s been an awful lot written about women’s bodies recently. What with the endless articles devoted to Kate’s boobs, the revelation that the ‘average’ woman spends 17 years of her life on a diet, not to mention the ongoing political battle about who gets to decide when she keeps or doesn’t keep her unborn child. All in all, that’s a lot of column inches devoted to fatness, thinness and everything in-between. No wonder we’re all so f*cked up about our figures. The fascination with bodies, celebrity or otherwise, isn’t exactly something new, of course, and shows no sign of abating. But here’s a thought: why don’t we just stop?

No comment.

      Oh, that’s alright then.

      As long as there is flimsy, sparse, wet material over the heaving breasts and pudenda, it’s not exploitative at all. OK.

      As usual, anything goes when lefties are doing it. They are going it for such worthy reasons you see, empowerment and information etc etc

        Because most of these girls take claisscal dansing classes when they young and that nicely rounds “les fesses”

    I knew a page 3 girl once -Tracy -who ended up on heroin as she could not cope with her sleazy past.

    The page3 world is a dark one full of sleaze and exploitation. What we see is a sanitised version of the truth.

        Get yer tits out for the boys says:

        I don’t know the ins and out
        of the story. Pretty sad
        though. She did tell me that
        her boyfriend at that time
        forced her to continue to go
        topless even though she
        wanted to stop, because of
        the big money and she was
        too young and naive to take
        control of her own life. She
        ended up homeless, addicted
        to heroin and in an abusive
        relationship. Sad but true.
        This is the side of the coin
        that we never hear about
        because it is multi billion
        dollar market and to be
        protected at all costs using
        freedoms and rights to defend
        this murky business.

    It is skanky. But at least she is not FORCED against her will or KNOWLEDGE to get her baps out. She gets paid tonnes for it. Unlike some who are forced into being exploited, some without their CONSENT or KNOWLEDGE even. That is unacceptable. Two sides to every story. This one has a nasty, dark side that we will never know about. Time for the truth to out.

    “Bloody hell Dave,” she said, “How many have you had tonight?”

    “Just the one.” I slurred.

    She said, “I can tell by your eyes that you’ve had more than one.”

    “Ok, two.” I said, “But I didn’t cum with the last bird.”

    They know it. We know it. Richard Desmond knows it. So does Murdoch. So did Paul Raymond. Etc.

    Trying to get on their high horse about page 3 is just the usual default lefty hypocrisy in action. They probably claim these shots they show on their site are ‘empowering’, or some shit.

    Peedo’s/kids explotation,who are mainly involved in this.
    Bankster’s exactly what schemes are they involved in.
    Police commissioners,is this another jobs for the boys.
    Ossibourne and selling houses,and other deals.
    Yeoha and his dealings what are they about.
    Hoggie and conflicts of interest,how about that one.
    Yes there are many things going on which are shady to say the least,but we seem to fixate on trivia.

    now like something out of a banana republic he is imposed on us without one other person getting a sniff of an interview
    yet again Lurking in the background is Chris Paton another useless twat who has just about fucked up every position that has been handed on a plate to him
    and still has the gaul to hang around the BBC as if he is the saviour when
    in fact he is part of the problem
    there has never been a better chance to close this cash gobbling dinosaur down and rid the tax payer of these people who give away our money to their friends and family even more so than the vermin MP’s that infest Westminster

      mmmm you could rather tell IDS was not having any end of show , oppertunism rants . EU meeting on going , no news yet shame QT wasnt treated to some of gems on NN ,EU spent 192,000 EU on a puppet play , its also building a £50mn new building (all without your say) , best one on sky was some of benfits beurocrats get £300 payment for a child .

      Just to clarify on the great scare of leaving the EU , the EU will still want to sell , cars and washing machines etc in the UK , we will just be at least £45mn a day better off per day once you take out minor beurocrcay requirements … bit misleading on QT on that question
