I note they neatly overlook the fact that any joint news conferences held in Downing Street are either inside, or in the garden, where only vetted individuals would be.

Furthermore, even if they did hold it in the street, any protestors would be 200 yards away beind a large sturdy iron gate, and three rows of the Met.

It should also be pointed out that our esteemed leader looked terrified when he gave that impromptu statement a couple of weeks ago accompanied by a cacophony of noise from the direction of Whitehall.

Jesus, are they completely fucking tone death?

Rightly or wrongly Ben Stokes is currently being hero worshipped by a lot of people in this country. Pissing him off and forcing him to release this statement against them was not a smart move, at all. If I remember rightly The Sun were giving him a kicking during his assault case and demanded he be deselected from the international team, they then promptly forgave him and now this? They're having a PR mare.

The Mail have also run the story, although I'm not sure if it's on their paper version or just online.



The Mail now appear to have removed their copy and paste Sun article from their website and replaced it with:

Furious Ben Stokes slams 'heartless' report into 'extremely painful' family tragedy dating back three decades and the 'grave and lifelong' impact it will have on his mother
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... agedy.html


Are they hoping nobody saw it? :lol:

Considering they were championing a No Deal Brexit The Sun seem desperately keen to blame everyone but themselves for a No Deal Brexit:

Leo’s legacy

A NO Deal Brexit will be a walk in the park here compared with Ireland.

Its central bank now reckons a third of its farmers will go bust, so heavily reliant are they on the UK market and so vulnerable to tariffs.

That could threaten seven per cent of the country’s entire workforce.

These statistics should wake Irish PM Leo Varadkar in a cold sweat. Yet he continues to play the hardman for Brussels, refusing to budge on the hated backstop that’s so fatal to a deal.

No one can know if we will leave “come what may” at the end of October, as Boris Johnson still insists. The odds look stacked against him.

A new deal seems a long way off given the breakdown of trust with the EU and their increasing lack of civility.

But if there is a No Deal exit, Varadkar will have taken a monstrous punt on his citizens’ jobs and lost. We’re sure they won’t blame him.








After years of whining about Gary Lineker's BBC salary Gary Lineker takes a pay cut and The Sun respond with sarcasm and more sneering:
Ears to you

HOW gracious of crisp salesman Gary ­Lineker to finally “volunteer” for a cut to his obscene BBC salary.

Even if the BBC would have made him do it anyway.

It was impossible to justify stinging OAPs for Gary’s £1.75million a year once the Beeb, to its shame, chose to strip over-75s of their free licence under the threat of jail for non-payment.

But how, we worry, will the country’s self-appointed moral compass scrape by on any less?
















Victims first

FOR far too long, victims of serious crime have been abandoned by the justice ­system. It is great news that Boris Johnson aims to do something about it.

Every current focus is on the criminal: catching, trying, sentencing, punishing and rehabilitating them.

Those whose lives they have torn apart are forgotten — kept in the dark even about the basics of trial dates, sentences or an offender’s early release.

Many are put through the mill in the witness box. Four years ago The Sun launched our Give Me Shelter campaign hoping to secure the safety of women abused by their partners.

We are delighted the PM is today appointing a Domestic Abuse Commissioner to champion them.

But his overall strategy, to prioritise victims’ rights over those of criminals, looks like the real game-changer.

Many who fall prey to burglars but are ignored by police will scoff. Where are their rights? That’s entirely fair — forces must address it with the new recruits coming their way.

But the priority must be victims of serious violence and sex crimes whose lives are already in ruins . . . and need a justice system that spares them further trauma.

Gary Linekar is the only presenter on the BBC top earner list who is working below his market value thanks to Mr Murdoch and the creation of the Premier league. Who fuck else would pay Steve Wright or John Humphrys half a million every year I don’t know. Eddie Mair yes which is why he’s been poached.

But good for British farmers? So you want Ireland to join a Sterling zone and threaten 93 percent of the workforce with tariffs.

Funny how forecasts & reports from the Irish Central Bank and the Irish government are to be taken as gospel, but UK government reports on various Brexit scenario outcomes as well as warnings from the Bank of England are "Project Fear™".

Gareth Thomas has revealed that a "tabloid journalist" told his parents that he was HIV positive, and it was this that forced him to go public with something that isn't the business of the public.

Bearing in mind the Mirror are running the above story, the Express are in too much of a Brexit frenzy, and the Star is, well, the Star, that leaves us with the usual two suspects.

Are they having a contest to see who can have the least ethics in the space of a week?

Has it really?! Was there meant to be another part to it in today's paper?
That was the information that was leaked early this morning.
Of course the leak might have been the Murdoch goons attempting to further game the situation.

And this whole mass of unemployed Irish people will still have freedom of movement to the UK.
Allowing them to come over here, take our jorbs, use our NHS ....

Great spoiling strategy Sun.

Ben Stokes story written by convicted criminal

Yesterday the Sun came under fire from England batsman Ben Stokes for a front page story Stokes called “utterly disgusting” and the “lowest form of journalism” after the newspaper despicably delved into his family’s past with no public interest justification. To add insult to injury, the journalist responsible for the 31-year-old story on the Stokes’ family is a convicted criminal who the Sun welcomed back to the newspaper, Nick Parker.

Alleged phone-hacker Nick Parker was tried under Operation Elveden, the police investigation into payments by journalists to public officials. He was charged with three counts of aiding and abetting misconduct in public office relating to payments made to a police officer and prison officer. He was also charged as part of the Metropolitan Police’s Operation Tuleta after receiving a mobile phone belonging to a Labour MP. Parker was welcomed back to the Sun newspaper in 2015.

The Sun still can't work out what Corbyn's stance is and it always gets them extremely irritate. They've accused him of being both a Brexiter and Remainer over the last year and not knowing for sure winds them up a hell of a lot:

THE SUN SAYS Clueless Corbyn can’t even decide on his Brexit stance — how on earth would he run the country?

AFTER months of agonising over Labour’s Brexit policy, Jeremy Corbyn finally arrives at this historic conclusion: “I don’t know.”

On the biggest issue facing Britain since World War Two, the man hoping to become Prime Minister has no opinion.

Corbyn has achieved what we believed impossible. His new stance is even more laughable than last week’s, when he pledged to negotiate a “better” EU deal but campaign against it.

Now he would put his deal to a second referendum but express no preference between that and remaining in the EU.



AdRecommendations powered by plista
He hasn’t a clue. He couldn’t say. It’s too hard. The Leader of the Opposition’s mind is a blank — not for the first time.

He would merely “carry out whatever the people decide” . . . er, exactly as Boris Johnson would be doing NOW if Labour wasn’t blocking him.

Why does Corbyn, having failed to respect the first vote, imagine anyone trusts him to enact the result of a second?

The only certainty is that he WILL sell Leavers down the river, as The Sun predicted.

Corbyn’s “Leave” deal would keep us in the EU’s customs union, handing it control of our economy while surrendering all our political influence.

That’s the worst possible option. It’s not “leaving” at all. It’s Remain by another name. Corbyn is too dim to see it.

His second referendum would thus be “Remain minus” vs Remain — a farce, absurdly biased and totally illegitimate.

This coward, ditherer and fool could yet run the country, God help us.










These occasional "Brexit is going to be bloody brilliant" propaganda pieces The Sun does would be a bit more believable if they didn't contradict themselves every few days and also concede that No Deal Brexit would be bad and Remainers are to blame for it:


Boom not bust

REMEMBER how our “broken” economy only works “for the few”?

Inflation is now just 1.7 per cent as pay leaps by 3.9 per cent, its fastest in 11 years.

Everyone’s standard of living is rising.

Remember Project Fear’s scares about the immediate catastrophe of voting Leave? A pack of lies.

Unemployment is at a 45-year low, employment at an all-time high, thanks to new full-time jobs.

Remember how the City would become a jobless wasteland? It is still easily the biggest global foreign exchange hub and pulling even further away from the competition.

If this is how Britain shrugs off political mayhem, imagine what we will do once Brexit is done and uncertainty lifts.
