The Daily Mail comes in for a lot of criticism, even on these very pages, but credit where it's due. Call The Mail prudish, Victorian, Draconian, anachronistic if you will, but there is no denying it knows its readers and it sticks steadfastly to a strict set of guiding principles.
You know instinctively what it will say on almost any issue and while The Mail may dislike young people it is certainly willing to be the self-appointed guardian of their moral well-being: from attacking pop videos for their fleshy content and effect on impressionable young minds, to expressing concerns about young girls' negative body image and rising rates of teenage pregnancies. In a nutshell, The Daily Mail wages a daily war against anything which prematurely sexualises young people.
But enough of this talk, here's a picture of a "stunning" 14-year-old girl in a bikini from The Daily Mail today. (It's your call if you click on the link).
