...Fruity Thursday! The day when attractive female students receive their exam results.

 

Students who are ugly or male (or both) are awarded theirs in a separate ceremony in a darkened cellar, some time next week.

Pretty sure this wasn't an annual event in the past. Who cares?

Who cares? Sweaty-palmed Telegraph editors, that's who. ;)

The last government were convinced that we were there to do their bidding. They wasted vast quantities of our money in order to spy on us, intimidate us and needlessly over regulate us, whilst gold plating their own pensions and expenses. Their behind the scenes encouragement of, and turning a blind eye to, the kettling and harrassment tactics of the Police are a shameful episode in our history which we need to remember and address urgently. - Haloman

In fact they all do it. You can a just imagine the hordes of sweaty handed middle age photo editors pouring over the photos today. Their best day of the years.

The main reason the highbrow papers like it is because they'll sell shedloads of extra papers with multi-page education sections to parents and sixthformers checking out all their options.

'... pupils at Tiffin Girls School in Kingston-Upon-Thames'

 

Somehow, I didn't think the Telegraph would be sending its reporters to a comprehensive school in Hartlepool.

They probably use the young fit girls to prevent the kind of abuse I saw on Twitter because one of the girls in a picture was quite bonny.  Sad sad people out there behind their keyboards.

Be careful with the term 'bonny' it has a completely opposite meaning in west than in the east
