Aintree set to BAN photographers from taking pictures of badly-dressed women at Grand National meeting
But… but… but where are we going to get pics of Train Smash Women, when their best source will be denied us?
Saith the sniffy killjoy boss of the event:
John Baker, managing director of the racecourse, hoped the ban would put an end to what he claimed was unfair coverage of customers getting drunk or flashing too much flesh at the event.
He said: ‘We want to overwhelm the negativity, to push the positivity to the front.
Here’s some frontal positivity for you:
‘Our event is full of character, it’s fun, and that’s generated by the personality of the Liverpool people.’
Ah, yes… that Scouser personality:
He warned that any photographer taking unflattering pictures would lose their accreditation.
‘We have to absolutely protect that because it’s at the core of what we are, and we have a responsibility to our customers to project the correct image.
‘We have talked about trying to monitor those photographers, so if we see any element clearly looking for a negative shot and we can identify that, we will take their accreditation off them and we’ll kick them off the site.
‘That’s not easily manageable, but that’s what we’ll endeavour to do.’
My feelings exactly.
