The Sun sets on Labour

with 5 comments

The Sun front page

On the day that the government’s new media communications czarina Kerry McCarthy said on Twitter

“We don’t need The Sun, we have Twitter”

What a remarkably dim comment to make, it’s hardly as though you can deliver the message to the broad masses in less than 140 characters, particularly when you protect your updates and expect people to ask to see them! I wonder how many people will get to see The Sun’s message love?

Update

Watched Brown’s interview with Adam Boulton on Sky News this morning when once again he was defensive, evasive, irritated, frustrated, and failed once more to take up the challenge of a live debate with David Cameron and Nick Clegg. Apparently he was just as bad on the BBC and is due to face Paxman on Newsnight BBC2 tonight!

  1. Whilst the likes of Alistair Campbell shrug this off dismissively, the sad thing is that a great many Sun readers do vote the way the paper tells them to.

    But does the Labour Party dare to do the one thing that might save the next election and get rid of Gordon?

  5. To keep the troops in Iraq and Afghanistan, Rossinisbird?
    The Sun’s endorsement doesn’t matter much, what you have to do to get it is of far more interest.
    As for the leadership debate, it’s all a bit puerile, isn’t it? What next, mud wrestling?
