Labour just lost the support of the Sun.

#1
Front cover of tomorrows paper shows that the Sun, after 12 years, is no longer supporting Labour.

Not sure if they are endorsing Conservatives, but Brown just lost a significant chunk of his remaining media support.

Let's face it, losing the support of the Sun isn't the worst thing that could happen..

"The Sun says...." at the bottom right. This is a bit like simple Simon says, but for simple people, who can't think for themselves therefore read the Sun to read (or guess from the pictures) what their opinion should be.

The Sun, sensing a shift of public opinion from those with more than half a brain cell, decides to jump on the bandwagon in order to shift more paper.

(Okay, and the Sun has tits, but so do French home catalogues in the shower section but I don't pick up white flag waving cheese eating policies from there...).

The scariest thing about this is the state of British politics is such that losing the support of a cr@p almost illiterate rag is such a major blow to a political party.

I suppose if Jeremy Kyle also withdraws his support the Labour Party will close up doors never to be heard of again. While that may sound good it is actually pathetic.

That isn't a recent media development; John Major lost the support of the Sun in the mid-90s and never recovered, disastrously losing the subsequent election. Like it or not, the Sun has a circulation of >3million, and its editorial view will be important to a good chunk of the readership.

And Page 3 is lovely! Whoever she is.

Attempt

One of the (many) problems with the Sun is, in an attempt to sell more papers to the recently lobomotised, they insist on sensationalising everything. Which comes back to the point made above.

Deranged

And as the kind of people who (usually) read the Sun ONLY read the Sun, they don't tend to get the balanced viewpoint, only whatever the mildly deranged editor of the day decides will sell more papers.

Snob

And without meaning to be a snob about it, papers such as the Mail/Express are actually not much better. Dressing up mild xenophobia does not make it anything other than what it is.

And her political thoughts of the day are a wonder in themselves.

Great news, Murdoch wouldn't have switched sides if he wasn't certain of a Tory win.

Still think Labour can win Ashie?


Ha ha ha. Happy days, the end of the clowns in govt is finally coming to an end. Still time for another 1/2 million to hit the dole queue in true Labour fashion.

Labour isn't working, hasn't worked and never will work. Bloody good at spending taxpayers money though.

The Sun, in my younger days, was always a Tory rag. It bailed out when Maggie left and became a Labour rag instead. Obviously, they know the way the winds blowing and pick the next party that will win the next election. Anyone doubt they've picked a winner?

The Sun, along with The Mirror etc is designed for the underclass untermenchen, who incidentally provide Labour’s largest vote. The only papers worth reading are the Telegraph & Times, anything else is drivel.

If the Telegraph had page 3 I’m convinced it would be the greatest paper of all time! :)

&c,

Oh great, it's been on the cards for over a year now, Cameron has been trying to get Murdochs vote as he knows that having news international behind him is worth its weight in gold, it's not just voters, it's the fact that now any Labour wrongdoing will be highlighted and any Tory wrongdoing will be swept away or downsized.

I'm not wanting Labour to win in its current state, but i did hope that Cameron wouldn't have to put himself in the position of now owing Murdoch favours, believe me it'll end up with problems for the UK in a couple of years time :(

I bet the BBC are now wondering how long they have until they lose their license fee and the BBC website is taken apart.

Sorry to p1ss on everybody's parade, but the next election is NOT a done deal. :wink:

There are millions of people who would STILL vote Labour; the Jeremy Kyles who live off ZANU's Benefits, the thousands of people who make a very comfortable living as 5-A-Day Co-Ordinators, Gender Realignment Outreach Workers etc.

Add to that ZANU-Labour's tribal support, who would still vote Labour even if Brown promised to publically execute HM the Queen, legalise child porn, outlaw beer and football and turn the UK into an Islamic Republic. :roll:

And all this, of course, is assuming we even HAVE a general election and that some "emergancy" in the months leading up to it does'nt "force" Norsefire - sorry, Labour - to suspend the democratic process and declare Martial Law...

..or did'nt anyone else notice Mandy's comments about "acting like INSURGENTS"? :twisted:

And the downside to the bold (above) is what? :party:
