It only took the Sun 44 years to realise how old fashioned a bored looking girl covered in goose pimples, sat in her underpants looked. The page 3 girl was as much part and parcel of the sniggering, leering seventies culture as Jimmy Savile and hidden rooms in TV centres where presenters could relieve themselves in. It was from a time when slavering, gurning men ruled the media and hypocrisy was everywhere.
