thirty years too late they arrest the hate-pedlars of the sun. i need to lie down; my sides are hurting. but the reaction from one of the current liars in chief includes this gem of newspeak:
the “Sun has a proud history of delivering ground-breaking journalism”
they are presumably very proud that their lies were believed to such an extent that britain’s sheep bleated in thatcher and major time and again.
they are proud of the career break they have given to so many young ladies who would otherwise have been left shivering without their underwear.
they are proud of the jingoistic hate that made them complicit in the deaths of a thousand over a small series of rocks in the south atlantic.
they are proud to have exposed the ‘fact’ that dole-queue-scroungers live in luxury while unfortunate millionaire bankers starve.
they are proud of the racism oozing from their pages that allowed the death of one young man in south london to be acceptable to the police and the ruling elite for 18 years.
proud to have replaced thought with knee-jerkery; compassion with self-righteousness; logic with bigotry. proud to have done all this with no other thought than to keep their lizard-masters in perpetual power.
oh and money.
they will be especially proud that they never got caught – until now…
kinda ground-breaking if they all get jailed, i suppose.
