Why we boycott the Sun Newspaper. Don't buy it, don't read it!

22-03-2015 19:37

Letter from the Sun received by Liverpool Manager Kenny Daglish
As you may be aware the people of Liverpool have been involved in a long, protracted and nasty battle with the British state, and their mediums of communication. In particular the Sun newspaper, or as it's known here the Scum. We don't buy it, we don't stock it in our newsagents.
