This was discussed last week whilst I was tenuously connected to Arrse by a crappy dial-up connection and wasn't able to post very often. My own view is that the Army as a whole should strongly consider boycotting the Sun newspaper, for the following reasons: It cloaks itself in 'pro-Army' rhetoric when we start an operation but offers no real support for military personnel, or understanding of what they do or the pressures that affect them. It corrupts Army personnel by paying them to leak stories which are already being dealt with by the disciplinary system. It holds military personnel to a perverse and unrealistic code of ethics which it wouldn't dream of applying to its own employees. It will support whatever policy is likely to most benefit Rupert Murdoch's wallet, whatever that implies for the rest of us. There are better tits in the Star and the Sport. It's crap. By boycott, I suggest that means asking messes not to subscribe and Naafis/YMCAs/Church Army newsagents etc not to stock it.
