|Gordon Brown V The Sun
||[Nov. 12th, 2009|10:09 am]
Which is the most disgusting- Gordon Brown or the Sun? That's a tough one. And I guess there's only one way to find out..... FIIIIIGHT! |
But surprisingly when it happened it was no contest. The Sun won hands down. Its exploitation of a bereaved mother's anger for political gain was sick-making. And in the process it managed to expose Brown's rarely seen human side. So he takes the trouble to sit down and write letters of condolence in his own hand? How decent and old-fashioned of him. And he makes mistakes- well don't we all? Or did he? His handwriting is so atrocious (again an endearing trait) that it's very hard to tell.
Gordon Brown will be gone soon. We won't miss him. But the Sun will continue to pollute the national discourse with its hypocrisy, jingoism and cynical populism for God knows how long.....
