Patiotism and the Sun just don't mix
Soft porn rag The Sun is working up quite a thing about flying the Union flag as a rejection of terrorism. Various celebrities are being chased to join in. Doubtless any who refuse to do as the totalitarians demand, will be castigated.
Well I have never beeen one to fly the flag ( not even the Cornish one) as a believer that scoundrel tnd to take cover in patriotism. I certainly do not need to do so to show my objection to terrorism. I am opposed to all violence against innocent people whether it be called war or terrorism. If only the Sun was capable of taking a stand against war rather than acting like an adolescent cheerleader whenever the call to arms is made!
But what most concerns me at this moment is the hypocrisy of the Sun. How dare they speak about what is the patriotic thing to do. After all they are not British owned. The truth is that the Sun is owned by an Australian who chose to switch to US citizenship for business reasons. Of all people, they are least qualified to speak of patriotism.
The time to take them seriously is when their owner bothers to contribute an equal share of his earnings to the British Exchequer as his readers pay. Until then, this campaign is one that shows contempt for their readers.
Still, if you want to know what level of intelligence they attricute to their readers here is today's insulting rubbish about a lad romping with a cow
