I'd rather kiss DLM after she's been licking chicken. oO

It's like all the people who were outraged that The Sun On Sunday, sorry, News Of The World, hacked Milly Dowler's voicemail but still went out and bought their last ever issue. I hope it will die down, but I fear newbie may be right, if only because so many people are total ****.

They did splatter the Independence Referendum (supposed) date on front page of the Scottish Sun,

That no doubt got a flurry of copies sold.

no wonder they sold loads, look how many are for sale on ebay. 1'000s at least.

i thought the general public hated the sun?

People have short memories

3 million copies sold. There were two reasons for that.

1) It was 50p
2) It was the cup final

Expect that sales figure to half next Sunday.

3 were printed,doesnt mean 3 million were sold.Dont believe the hype

You know who was buying this... I was in the supermarket yesterday and the lady behind me was loading the belt up with all her milk token milk then capped off with this rag at the end. I made sure she noticed I disapproved.

Just goes to prove that there are at least three million idiots still living in the UK.

It's a fact that they had 3 million copies printed. It's a "Murdoch fact" that they managed to sell every single one of those copies.

I think it's indicative of the lack of standards and morals in this country that one minute folk are calling for Murdoch to be lynched / hung / drawn etc ... the next, so many of them are buying his latest rag.

the hypocracy of people moaning about The Sun, and yet you'll see then out in their designer label clothes that have been made in a Taiwanese sweatshop.

sun and the star eveyday for me

anyone else noticed this paper abbreviates to SOS ???

completely agree. The NOTW was "closed down" because of all the phone hacking allegations, then several months later they open up the office again and callbit something else. Were they hoping that people wouldn't know its the same paper with a different name. Its crazy they would have the nerve.

Obviously the NOTW couldn't continue because its name was shamed to the point of no return but surely people must realise its still the NOTW?

I must have purchased a different copy as mine doesn't say Sun on Sunday. It says The Sun and the word Sunday underneath. So mine abbreviates to TSS.
Yes I bought one and will continue to do so regardless of what every-one else says.

the sun is the john cravens newsround of the paper world, it puts the news in simple terms for simple people.
