The Sun is too good for one reader....
The useful Guardian 'Wrap' has the following gem that I somehow missed (5th September). A while ago, I suggested that Brendan Fearon, the man wounded by Farmer Tony Martin, appeared the very embodiment of Nick Cotton. The Sun is more forthcoming:
"Throw away the key" says the Sun. "Porridge for sickening crook Fearon" it adds - apparently angered by the revelation that Fearon is a Sun reader, shown in the paper using a copy of the paper to cover his face on the way to a court appearance yesterday.Quite. The Sun has a formidable reputation to uphold. For a further comment, see 'Josh' archives dated 12 April 2003 and for a link to the unironic Sun article, click here.
While dealing with the Sun's high standards, I understand that there are naughty pictures in this 'news'paper. Sun 'journalists' seem not to be aware that sex is not a spectator sport (© Josh).
I can also recommend Private Eye's assessment (after Spike Milligan) of the level of intelligence of Sun devotees. The Eye had a crossword once, 'For Sun Readers'. The clues were:
1 across: first letter of the alphabet.No doubt Sun intellectuals would recognise that there are two forms of the indefinite article and claim the clue to be unfair.
