The Sun newspaper comes down on the side of Brexit

Front page of the Sun newspaper June 14.

NO MATTER what you may think of the quality and wisdom of the Sun newspaper, there is absolutely no doubt that it does have a major influence on the views of its millions of readers and its decision today (June 14) to support the Brexit will come as a major blow for David Cameron and a fantastic fillip for the Leave group.

There is a certain irony in the fact that the Leave campaigners have decried the comments from foreign leaders and organisations supporting the Remain faction but now they are being supported by the former Australian, turned American (apparently for financial reasons) Rupert Murdoch, who must have put his weight behind the decision to recommend a vote to Leave.

Effectively, the editorial concerning this matter criticises the EU, the Government and David Cameron, and indicates that by leaving, Britain will become Great again by emulating the main democracies such as Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the USA, so that the country will become “richer, safer and free at long last to forge our own destiny”.

It carries on to say that the Remain campaign uses foreigners and Europhiles to try to frighten the British people, by threatening “mass unemployment, soaring interest rates and inflation, plummeting house prices, even world war.”

With just nine days to go before the referendum vote, this is without doubt a piece of masterful timing which may well, with the tacit assistance of a slightly less open Daily Mail, help to swing the vote towards the Brexit.

Cynics may recall that the newspaper group has made a few unfortunate mistakes in the past, but it is unquestionable that its opinion is important.

Brutal force was used on a peaceful protest by the NGA and Sogat unions against the use of unskilled labour replacing skilled staff in his print plant .putting people who have been time served apprentices out of work. DO NOT BELIEVE THIS PAPER..

  3. Where is your evidence for the allegation “who MUST have put his weight behind the decision” ?

    Surely a retraction is in order if your claim is not substantiated!
