The Sun still fears for the future of its Page 3 girls despite the victory of their man David Cameron in the General Election. The new threat comes in the shape of new equalities minister "Lib Dem Lynne Featherstone, 58," who warned during the election campaign that she would "love to take on Page 3". The Sun says: "Landing the Home Office job means the battleaxe North London MP has potential power to force through a ban." And it reported Page 3 girl Peta Todd saying: "If Ms Featherstone wants to take us on, she should know that we won't go down without a fight.It's pathetic. There are enough problems without wanting to stop our freedom of expression." See also: Vote Tory or the Page 3 girls get it
