WHAT more would Bulgaria’s Nazi fans have to do to get their team expelled from the Euros?

Racism is so embedded in the sport there that even the ground staff joined the racists giving Hitler salutes and making monkey chants.

But the usual paltry fines and brief stadium bans will never eradicate this vile prejudice. The resignation of the Bulgarian FA’s chief is a start.


Fear not Bulgarian racists the Sun will guide you on how to carry on regardless without leaving your fingerprints
NO wonder Labour objects to voters having to use free photo ID to eliminate fraud.

They suspect it could hurt their tally. As would a crackdown on postal voting crime, which is far more urgent.

Mob is tamed

FOR more than a week Extinction Rebellion have cocked a snook at the public and the law. Finally the law is taking control.

Enough is enough. The eco mob have made their point, such as it is.

Their hysterical and unscientific “demands” will not be met by any sane Government, since they would upend our democracy and destroy the economy.

Nor are their protests peaceful, since they involve vandalism, obstruction and trampling on the rights of others.

More than 1,400 have been arrested. We congratulate the police on that.

But if they were able to ban this rabble after nine days, why not do it a week ago?



So this went well :lol:

THE SUN SAYS Second Brexit referendum would inflict catastrophe on our divided country

JUST as Remainer MPs arrive in Brussels, shamefully hoping to sabotage knife-edge negotiations, a landmark poll destroys their case for a second referendum.

The “People’s Vote” mob have repeatedly told the world that Britain has changed its mind and is itching to reverse Brexit. It is Grade A cobblers.

The biggest, most definitive survey in three years shows 50 per cent back Leave (30 for a deal, 20 for No Deal) with 42 Remain and eight “don’t knows”.

But by an even bigger margin, 54 to 32, the public wants the 2016 result enacted.

Which might also explain why the Tories are 15 points ahead in another poll and Boris Johnson leads as “best PM” in every single region, class and age category including even the 18-24s.

A second referendum would inflict catastrophe on our divided country.

Those MPs who champion it out of myopic loyalty to Remain will, we hope, be kicked out whenever an election comes.

Good riddance to the lot.


Loony luvvies

THE multi-millionaire luvvies of the Hypocrites’ Rebellion have excelled themselves.

We are now seriously invited to consider them victims “stuck in the fossil fuel economy”. The poor poppets!

So it’s not their fault they own multiple homes and cars, make millions in a “high-carbon” business and flit around the world in first class or on private jets. Nor that their carbon footprint is incalculably higher than millions of lesser mortals too poor to drive let alone fly.

The system is to blame — not the luxuries they definitely won’t be giving up.

We assume then that it’s not Lewis Hamilton’s fault he thrashes petrol cars for a living while demanding everyone else gives up meat to save the planet. The Monte Carlo-based F1 ace is just helplessly trapped in the fossil fuel economy.

But these cosseted showbiz clowns cap it all by urging us to ignore their jaw-dropping hypocrisy because the “real story” is that the planet is dying.

Who told them that? IPCC scientists? Er, no. Greta Thunberg, the 16-year-old the luvvies inexplicably “cannot ignore”.

They are wrong in so many ways. Not least in thinking the media wants them silenced. We enjoy their witterings enormously. And, luckily, the public doesn’t listen to stars’ woke sermons.

Otherwise Corbyn would already be in power and we would all be eating our pets.










Gold meddle

THE Sun will always oppose nanny state meddling. But we have a soft spot for calorie counts on menus.

Why? Because they’re not a big imposition on big restaurant chains or customers.

They do provide the latter with a useful steer on what they’re eating.

And, as research reveals, they encourage restaurants to serve healthier grub.

Who knows? They might actually work.

Obviously the first choice as Thunberg doesn't debate climate change science due to the overwhelming evidence of the IPCC scientists having settled the matter.

GET REAL…TAKE THE DEAL! The Sun urges every MP to back Boris Johnson’s deal on Saturday and get Brexit done


BORIS Johnson, against all odds and in defiance of his sneering critics, has pulled off a vastly-improved deal. The Sun urges every MP: Back it tomorrow and get Brexit done.

It is immeasurably better than Theresa May’s. And it will get us out of the EU in less than two weeks, as the PM has promised.

Our divided, paralysed country is desperate for Brexit to be sorted. Boris’s deal will do it.

But he has a mountain to climb in the Commons. The DUP are suddenly opposed. But the new arrangements for Northern Ireland seem entirely reasonable. They still have 24 hours to come to their senses.

The Tory ERG group have no reason to cry foul. They have been kept informed line by line — and in Boris they at last have a genuine Brexit believer. Plus, this truly looks their last chance.

It is time too for Labour MPs in Leave seats, who have repeatedly claimed they want a deal, to finally vote for one. Yes, we know they are terrified of Corbyn and Momentum’s revenge — but it is time now to do right by their VOTERS and our democracy.

The same goes for the ex-Tory rebels. They always said they only opposed No Deal. Fine. Vote, then, for this one. The rest of Labour and the Lib-Dems are beyond hope, making fools of themselves with their exaggerated criticisms yesterday. But the public is listening less and less. As this week’s landmark survey showed, Britain just wants the referendum result enacted NOW.

The EU could all but secure Boris his victory by officially refusing to grant an extension to our October 31 deadline — thus killing off the Benn “Surrender Act” and the second referendum plot.
Most MPs would then prefer the deal to No Deal or revoking Brexit.

We urge the EU to do it. It makes sense for them and us. No one but the most stubborn Remainers wants to prolong the hideous uncertainty affecting our lives, businesses and economies. An extension will do so for months, even years.

And both the deals the EU has painstakingly put together over more than three years will have come to nothing. But whether or not Boris triumphs tomorrow he has already spectacularly proved the doubters, Remainer pundits and conspiracy theorists wrong.

Remember the fantasy about the negotiations being a smokescreen — that the PM was steering Britain towards No Deal to enrich his hedge fund mates? Remember how the EU would never reopen the Withdrawal Agreement? That the hated Irish backstop was set in stone? That Ireland would never negotiate with Britain directly? All of it was rubbish.

The deal was rewritten and significantly improved after a one-to-one summit between Boris and Irish PM Leo Varadkar. The backstop is dead. Boris has landed a great deal which secures what the 17.4million majority voted for in 2016, with Britain out of the EU and its central institutions and courts, free to do global trade deals.

Take it. End the agony. People are crying out for resolution on October 31. They will be aghast and outraged if our dithering politicians instead choose to snatch this golden chance away.

The press is too powerful, though, isn't it?

Look at the front pages of all the usual culprits today. By the end of the day a huge proportion of the country will genuinely believe this is some brilliant deal and a masterstroke by Boris because that's what these loud booming voices have told them. They don't even need to read or understand the deal.

Because it's not about succeeding, but winning. And winning is not losing. So if you get a win with a duff deal, it doesn't matter because you've won. And you're not a loser.

As I've said before, you have to view this through the filter of a public school mentality that sees everything as a two horse, zero sum game.

It's unforgivable. No scrutiny, no impact assessments, no measured debate. Just push the biggest political and economical decision in our life times through in the space of a day? And so any idiots are cheering it and Labour MP's are going to vote it through just to "get Brexit done". So many people are going to be hit so fucking hard by this but they just see it as some sort of Winners and Losers game, egged on by multi millionaires who won't have to feel the effects of it themselves, and in some cases get even richer off it.

I know at some point we were always going to get to this point of no return where it actually does happen, but the way it's been handled has been an utter embarrassment and we have absolutely no right to sneer at 'banana republics' and corrupt governments in far flung countries. We simply have a complete lack of any sort of competent opposition who's meant to be challenging and putting the spotlight on this shit show. Instead they're waving it through and hiding away as if this hasn't got anything to do with them. That won't be forgotten and the Labour Party we have today can fuck off for all eternity as far as I'm concerned. They, and especially you Jeremy fucking Corbyn, are totally complicit in this and that can never be forgiven.

But, a heartfelt round of applause and thank you to those very clever men and women who pulled out every single trick in the book to try and stop this. They did all they could within the parameters of the law to find a way out of this and they're the only ones that can walk away with their heads held high. Bercow, Gina Miller, the lawyers, judges and campaigners are all heros in my eyes. (Well, Bercow certainly isn't perfect, the little fucking scamp, but he chose the right time to see the light).
