‘The Sun’ goes down on Brown

British PM and Labour party lose tabloid endorsement—and other headaches


Things just keep getting worse for Gordon Brown. Earlier this week, a BBC interviewer asked the British prime minister about Internet rumours suggesting he is addicted to prescription drugs. Now the populist tabloid The Sun has switched sides, endorsing the Tories in the coming elections. Brown’s Labour Party, which is holding its annual conference, is spitting mad.

‘The Sun’ goes down on Brown

  1. I guess the Brits have no stomach left for cheese like this:

    "We are all angry about the Sun this morning, but I say to you: don't get bitter, get better. Don't get outraged, get out there. Don't get mad, get mobilised."

  2. Losing 'The Sun' is a big deal since the paper was credited with making New Labour acceptable to lower middle classes 15 years ago. Brown was a bit stropy on tv today while claiming that losing The Sun was not a big deal.
