silly slag

something about this cover… I dunno, they’re obviously ‘going for the jugular’ and all that, and people in British politics are conditioned to fear The Sun… but this just feels kind of anachronistic and a bit silly, they slag off Corbyn for being a throwback to the eighties, but that’s what this cover feels like. 

Maybe it’s just me but I sort of feel like even general mainstream culture is that little bit more sophisticated than it used to be, and covers like this don’t have anything like the power they used to, less than they had at the last election in 2015 even. In the latest ABC circulation figures The Sun’s readership was down 10.5% from the year before…maybe it’s wishful thinking but I really think folk are beginning to move on from this shite
