Telegraph Frees the Nipple

The paper of Bill Deedes has crossed the Rubicon and freed the nipple. Scroll down on this click-chasing article about “72 hour drug-fuelled sex binges” and readers of Her Majesty’s Telegraph are confronted with a stock photo of a lady whose arm doesn’t quite cover her modesty:

A change in policy, or was it a big boob?

Tom Bradby Sex Appeal Figures Sexed Up

“Tom Bradby is so hot he got 500,000 new viewers,” claims a headline in the Times today. It follows on from yesterday’s puff piece reporting ITV News at Ten “has put on half a million viewers since Tom Bradby began presenting”. The generous write-up claimed:

“Average viewing figures for the ITV bulletin over the past three weeks have risen to two million — up by half a million on September averages.”

Has Bradby’s sex appeal really made such a remarkable difference?

Industry insiders tell Media Guido that, actually, the ITV News at Ten numbers are flat. In the three weeks since Bradby took over, reliable sources say ITV News at Ten has scored above two million on just three nights. The ratings have reached c1.9 million on zero nights, c.1.8 million on one night, c.1,7 million on six nights, c1.6 million on 2 nights and c1.5 million on 2 nights. The “half a million” headline figure is as sexed up as their new choice of host…

UPDATE: The BBC hit back as the 10pm flame war intensifies:

UPDATE II: Here are the ITV figures in full since Bradby took over. Last night’s numbers take the average just above 2 million:

Labour Peer’s Sex-Driven Politics

Baroness Young of Old Scone has been over-sharing in the Lords, revealing that it was being provided the contraceptive pill aged 16 by Harold Wilson’s government that led her to support the Labour Party. Poor old Lord Blencathra didn’t know where to look when she started talking about how she “had a good Scottish diet and was very precocious for my age”:

Baroness Young of Old Scone (Lab): I was born in Scotland and I was brought up in a Scottish Conservative household. When I was 16 I thought that the election result, when a Labour Government was returned after 13 years of what is now known as Tory misrule, was the end of the world. I had been taught to believe that. Two years later I was canvassing for Labour in the election.

What changed me was that at the age of 16 I could get pregnant. At that time I could not get birth control in this country at that age. During that period, when I was aged 16 or 17, the first Brook Advisory Centre opened in Edinburgh. I could then go on the pill. Quite frankly, it was probably the best thing that ever happened to me. The knowledge that I could not get proper support for being sexually active—I had had a good Scottish diet and was very precocious for my age—was what politicised me. I have no qualms about announcing that here tonight

Not the first person to get into politics for the sex…

Attractive Women Say We Need to Stop Climate Change

totty green

Supermodel Cameron Russell is taking time out from her job as professional clothes horse to lead an army of models demanding “climate justice” from world leaders. Cameron and her high cheek-boned cohorts have taken to Instagram, posting selfies and sharing their thoughts on carbon emission, such as this recent missive from Russell herself:

“Yesterday, Hurricane Patricia made landfall in Mexico. It was the strongest hurricane ever recorded.This massive storm was a powerful wake-up call. And this week #exxonknew has been trending after journalists uncovered that ExxonMobil, the world’s largest and most powerful oil company, knew everything there was to know about climate change by the mid-1980s, and then spent the next few decades systematically funding climate denial and lying about the state of the science.”

Heidi Allen: Osborne “Out of Touch… Betraying Who We Are”

Well, new Tory MP Heidi Allen’s maiden speech will have gone down like a cup of cold sick in the Treasury. Her withering attack on tax credit reform accused Osborne, among other things, of being “out of touch” and “betraying who we are“. And asking “how many of us really know what it feels like?” is golden ammo for Labour. Clearly Heidi doesn’t fancy a promotion in the next ten years…

At least some people liked it:

Incidentally, Heidi was the MP who told LBC she couldn’t see Osborne as PM. Why doesn’t she just JOIN LABOUR?
