As Nicole celebrates her freedom to bare, the Guardian laments:

Days after what looked like the end of its use of topless models on Page 3 sparked celebrations among campaigners, Thursday’s Sun seems to have reverted to type. In what appears to be an attempt to regain control of the narrative surrounding the future of the newspaper’s Page 3, the paper again features a photograph of a topless model, which appears under a “Clarifications and Corrections” header and comes after a front-page panel announces: “We’ve had a mammary lapse.”

If you don’t read that and support the Sun’s right to “regain the narrative” of its own news, then you miss the point about freedom to offend.

“So it seems the fight might be back on,” tweeted Lucy-Anne Holmes, the founder of the No More Page 3 campaign, who added: “Thanks to @TheSunNewspaper for all the publicity they’ve given the campaign. See you tomorrow xxx”

That’s the campaign that failed.

The Labour MP, Stella Creasy, also offered her take: “So Sun going back to doing #page3? bit like drunken letchy uncle at a wedding who doesn’t get the message. Makes everyone uncomfortable.”

No. Not everyone, Nicole, for isntace, is not uncomfortable, neither are the paper’s millions of readers.
