Crikey: Have you seen today's Sun?!

In Cameron We Trust. Our Only Hope!
You know the system stinks when the Sun's front page implores its readers to vote for Cameron. What have the Tories promised Murdoch then? To abolish the BBC perhaps?


Whatever, you can guarantee that the Sun is acting solely in the interests of the Murdoch corporation and not for the good of the UK population. How many of it's readers (and those of the Daily Mail et al) will be swayed by it's unbridled promotion of the Tories... and the downright lies the papers often print in the pursuance of the aims of their owners and their shareholders??

The Sun always calls it right in elections and has seen through the poor policies of Labour and the libdems. If we really want change we should follow their advice.

Anti-Tory's cannot complain, the Sun got Labour into power in all elections since 1997, including that one, Thank God they have evaluated the UK's situation correctly this time and know which of the party's are the only one likely to pull us out of this mess.

Well then there must be a lot of total arse's around then (you said it). Regularly People regularly spout "facts" supplied by the Daily Mail and The Sun... which then turn out to be very far from the truth.

It's not wise to underestimate the huge power of indoctrination and persuasion that the media has (especially on uneducated minds). It is quite dangerous.

Which brings me on to schools run by corporations and pressure groups... who ever thought that could be a good idea... oh, Tony Blair. Another reason not to vote Labour.

Charlie, please don't be fooled by these ar$e rag tabloids. They could see that Labour was faltering 6 months ago so decided to jump on the Tory bandwagon. They did it last time when labour got into power, they could see John Major wasn't up to the job and changed their alliance.

Why ?..........just so they can brag "it was the sun that won it?

Considering ALL the newspapers try and sway their readers, what harm is this???
Ysterdays Mirror was calling for "tactical" voting and even listed the constituancies that people could attack the torys in by voting Labour instead of Lib dem!!
All the papers are at it (as waas the BBC with the Lib dems)
On a refreshing note... did anyone watch the channel 4 coverage "the Alternative election night" ???
