Clare Short will be pleased

The one thing that people who care not one jot about politics know about Clare Short is that she does not like photographs of underclad women in tabloid newspapers. Or at least she did not, as she has not had much to say about the subject since '86.

Anyway, the Danish equivalent of our own dear super soaraway Sun, Ekstra Bladet, is ditching page three, or in its case page nine, girls. So far, so not very interesting, but in a development that is howlingly funny, "Starting Wednesday, the paper's page 9 will instead be dedicated to women's issues featuring advice, comments and letters".

Anyone would think that the likes of Toynbee, Campbell (B), Bunting et al (or Nordic equivalents) had stormed the building, tarred & feathered the management and instigated a new editorial line, but apparently not: "Although the new page 9 will be dedicated to women's issues, there are as yet no women on Ekstra Bladet's management staff".

Hmm. A visit to the scene shows the Page 9 pigen (sic) still in silicon business (assuming this is Wensday). And why does Nyhedsavisen ("Newsnewspaper") announce this and not the tabloid itself?

Clearly a splendid job opportunity has arisen. Maybe you should draw this to the attention of Toynbee, Campbell (B), Bunting et al, on the basis that if one of them were to succeed in her application our lives would be just that lttle bit less burdensome.

They should combine the edgy relationship between Denmark and Islam with a "Page 3 stunna" and have topless veiled women possibly in cartoon form.
