Had Enough, Mr Murdoch?

So, apparently, if we want to see a light at the end of the tunnel, we need to ditch Labour.

Well, DUH...

Now, according to Wikipedia, 'The Stun' has almost 8 million readers. Of course, I use the term in its loosest possible sense. Their sensationalist approach, letting nothing - not even the facts - impede Mr Murdoch's revenue stream, has long been a winning approach in this country. And I would imagine it's safe to say that their 1997 front page, reproduced above, contributed a great deal to Labour's 1997 General Election victory.

Remember this, Mr Murdoch?

Everything we now have - the Stalinist repression of civil liberties, the collapsing NHS, the recession, a bankrupt nation, an education system so demolished that children leave school capable only of reading your rag - you hold a large part of the responsibility for what's happened to our nation.

Thanks for the last eleven years, Mr Murdoch. Shame it took you and your toadies that long to work out the truth behind the New Labour smoke and mirrors.

Still, I'm sure you've made a few quid out of it.
