Media 16 September 2012 John Major: Prosecute the "peeping tom" who took topless pictures of Kate Quote of the day. Sign up for our weekly email * Print HTML Asked about the topless photographs of the Duchess of Cambridge, John Major told the Andrew Marr Show: "The boundaries have plainly been crossed. I don't think we need to mince words about these photographs. The way they have been obtained is tasteless. It is the action of a peeping tom. In our country we prosecute peeping toms. That is exactly what they have done and they have been peeping with long lenses from a long way away. They are very distasteful. I have often in the past been critical of the British media. I thoroughly applaud the fact that they will not touch these pictures with a barge pole. They deserve credit for not doing so. It is a pity that other people overseas have lower standards." › Michael Gove poised to unveil sweeping GCSE reforms - which might never happen John Major said the photographer was a "peeping Tom".
