As is now traditional, the newspapers illustrate the arrival of A Level results with pictures of toothsome young ladies leaping in the air in delight at hearing that they really have got into the University of Lower Neasden to study Needlework. It\’s even said that certain schools tout themselves as having particularly toothsome young ladies who would like to be so photographed.
I\’m afraid that The Guardian has just raised the stakes:

Has Julie Bindel just taken over as The Guardian\’s pictures editor or something? Are we now in the sort of photographic arms race that brought fame and fortune to Larry Flynt?
