The Sun Says….
“I don’t want him running my country and I don’t want him deciding who the prime minister is,” says former Sun editor Kelvin McKenzie, of Nick Clegg.
Well, that’s lovely. The Sun loved Blair all the time he was bombing people, then switched to Cameron, because Murdoch felt the Real Tories hold little brief for the BBC, which is certainly true. David Yelland, previously editor of your soaraway Sun, wrote this piece in the Guardian this week about why the Lib Dems would be bad for Murdoch. What’s bad for Murdoch is good for the UK.
One celebrity endorsement today made me sad. Billy Bragg came out for the Lib Dems. It made me sad because, to me, this shows to what extent the New Party have ditched everything they once believed in. Here’s Billy singing in support of the Miners’ Strike, from 1985. Can anybody remember when the New Party last supported striking workers against the bosses?
