Next Sunday sees the return of the NotW...OOOps, sorry, Sun on Sunday.

Just wondering will the same journalists from v1 be employed & will the Met Police receive bonuses for policing the launch?

Sun on Sunday


David Wooding, former political editor of the News of the World, said "this is not the News of the World in another guise, this is The Sun publishing on another day."

We have to believe what journalists say, now that we know more about them.

The Sun is a Red Top tabloid that is aimed at the section of the population that doesn't care who runs the country as long as she has got big t**s. The fact that it has the highest circulation of any daily UK newspaper, is a sad reflection upon the current educational and intellectual standards of the country.

It will never ever be a true Sunday newspaper it simply hasn't got the depth that is needed. All we have in reality is the Daily Sun published on 7 days a week instead of 6. Murdoch just wants to recoup the losses that he incurred in closing down the NOW.

That might be true, or perhaps it's that the masses don't buy books or get their entertainment from gossip at dinner parties, but rather get their satisfaction from gutter press employing criminal reporters who have no care about how they dig the dirt that those masses want to read.

I should imagine that there is very large proportion of the population who do not read the Sun, many of whom are criminally targeted by Sun reporters with intrusive practices. I have no idea if any Sun readers were bribed or subject to unacceptable activities resulting from bribes.
