Perhaps the Sun doesn't believe in Hell.

Or perhaps they've reflected on their conduct, and hope there's none.

But if we wanted to match Tusk’s juvenile rhetoric

You've matched him on that for 30 years.

But if we wanted to match Tusk’s juvenile rhetoric, we might speculate that Satan’s flames are more likely to consume an unaccountable elite whose ideology condemned millions across the continent to long-term unemployment.

The Sun still reckons Leave would win a second referendum.

But why risk rolling the dice?
:lol: Sure looks like it...you only feel the need to remind your readers (and yourselves?) of that on a weekly basis.



THE SUN SAYS Boris Johnson and Jacob Rees-Mogg must think hard about voting down PM’s Brexit deal concessions as chaos may follow

IF Tory backbench eurosceptics want to ensure Brexit happens they must get real.

The Irish backstop won’t be “binned”. The “Malthouse compromise” is too late.

The best they can hope for is a legally-binding tweak allowing us to leave the hated backstop and ensuring Britain and Northern Ireland are not divided.

Rejecting her deal won’t bring about the No Deal many want. We believe a majority of MPs and half the Cabinet will blow up the Government and Brexit before they let that happen.

The result COULD be Mrs May agreeing to Corbyn’s idiotic demand for permanent Customs Union membership. But we can’t believe she’ll do that either.

It would rip the Tories in two, as Labour aides calculate, as well as being an insane surrender of our sovereignty and future economic independence and a betrayal of Leave ­voters. Small wonder Brussels was so keen on it yesterday.

All of which leaves what? A postponement on March 29, terrible damage to the Tories and a possible second referendum tearing the country apart.

Some have written off the “people’s vote” mob already. Not us.

So Boris Johnson, Jacob Rees-Mogg and the rest must think hard. Vote down whatever legal concession the PM secures and chaos may follow.

The Sun still reckons Leave would win a second referendum.

BRITAIN’S economic forecasts may be poor — but they still beat Germany’s and Italy’s

So the economic forecasts are no longer "Project Fear?



Let us thrive

BRITAIN’S economic forecasts may be poor — but they still beat Germany’s and Italy’s. And that is truly remarkable.

It is a testament to this country that any firm wants to invest here while we have no idea what our future will look like in just seven weeks.

Not to mention while millions still want a Marxist Labour Government committed to an economic model that has left Venezuelans scavenging from bins.

Imagine the tsunami of money and new jobs once a Brexit deal is done — and if the threat of Corbyn’s wrecking ball is lifted.







Rein them in

THE morally bankrupt tech giant Instagram finally promises to remove graphic images of self-harm.

So much for Nick Clegg, new PR man for the site’s owners Facebook, cravenly defending them just days ago.

It is shameful it took the threat of a ban or a new regulator. The damage done was surely obvious years ago. But Instagram only acted after the suicide of 14-year-old Molly Russell, a firestorm of criticism and Government intervention.

Chief Adam Mosseri admits: “We have not been as focused as we should have.” No kidding.

Regulation cannot come soon enough. They are out of control.

Has anybody else noticed how authoritarian the Sun's editorials sound.

It'd be a good wheeze to record them in a Dalek voice.

Or do what someone did with David Cameron, and Photoshop their quotes onto supervillains.

I must've missed that one, but I didn't pick up Captain Britain habitually again after Paul Cornell's MI-13 run (mostly because I liked that, and the retcons weren't as much fun).

Skive protest

SHAME on the MPs backing today’s mass school truancy dressed up as a “climate strike”. What is the point of it?

Britain has cut its greenhouse gas emissions by 42 per cent since 1990, faster than almost every other major nation, even as they have risen globally.

Yet schoolkids nationwide will walk out over “an alarming lack of Government leadership” on climate change.

It is politically-motivated drivel.

You’d expect the Green Party to support it. They’d love to scrap air and road travel and grow all Britain’s food on allotments (which, even if we did, would have almost no effect on the global climate).

But why is the ambitious Lib-Dem MP Layla Moran, a former teacher, irresponsibly indulging this naïve protest and encouraging kids to skive off?

School heads are right to be furious.





So Dam rude

WHAT possesses leaders of our supposed allies to casually abuse Britain?

Holland is a fabulous place. We share much with the Dutch. Yet their PM Mark Rutte belittles us as “a weakening country on the wane . . . too small to appear on the world stage on its own”.

What a time he has picked, with the EU facing recession and a populist uprising, to try to talk up staying in it. And what damage he and other leaders do to the goodwill between us with their constant attacks on our Brexit decision.

Can anyone imagine Theresa May mocking Holland’s prospects? Of course not.

Like tacky tax haven wheezes so the Sun doesn't have to pay a penny in corporation tax towards for Our Boys or anything else.

Yeh what a time as China has cancelled trade talks with mighty Blighty after Private Pike mouths off with gunboat diplomacy to impress Sun readers. Its your own time your wasting.

And try calling it the Netherlands. Just imagine the Sun's fury if a Dutch politician referred to the UK as Kent.
