The Sun says sorry

Regular readers of this blog will be aware of all the fuss surrounding Home secretary Alan Johnson's decision to sack David Nutt as Chair of the Advisory Council on the Misuse of Drugs for telling the truth. In classic New Labour style a nasty attempt was made to get at Nutt through press stories about his children. [Interestingly the evening that Nutt made his speech I ended up chatting to his wife about how alcohol represents the most dangerous drug for young people - our kids are roughly the same ages.]

Stephen Nutt his son complained to the Press Council and their website revealed that the Sun has removed the story from its website and published a letter from Stephen. This was unsurprising not widely published. A google search shows no newspapers reporting on it.

Despite this silence well done Stephen - few take on the evil Sun and win.

Lest we forget

This picture relates to the call to boycott the Sun over its scummy reporting of the Hillsborough tradegy when 96 Liverpool fans were killed. For background read here
