(This analysis concerns yesterday's story.)
What a paradox there is in the essential hotness of this photo! Has Westminster Palace ever looked so erotic?
In all seriousness, I think it's clear that the picture of "Shannon" would not be so arresting if the cab she were riding in were not within view of the ancient seat of British power. I think the fact that even Pauline Réage, in her character Sir Stephen, seems compelled to acknowledge that there is something special in the way of British dominance, shows us precisely why this image of a girl whose very slightly, and very wickedly, adorned nakedness has clearly been commanded to be displayed, shamefully, in a cab, captures my fancy.
A girl in her lingerie in a cab outside Westminster Palace belongs to the Lord Chancellor, of course. The Lord Chancellor knows what to do with that sort of girl: she must be sent for a spanking. Who better to carry that spanking out than a Member of Parliament?
