The sun ain’t gonna shine anymore… Only with some anger?

By this stage it is clear to any vaguely interested observer who possesses common sense that there is something endemically wrong at News International. With the demise of its flagship paper the News of the World last year, we hoped that a purging process would follow with all those who had taken part or condoned immoral and illegal practices being exorcised.

Sadly this has not been the case and with numerous police investigations and a public enquiry still in progress into many of its reporters, the first “the Sun on Sunday” was printed recently.

I do not need to make a long argument about the morally rotten core at the centre if the Murdoch Empire so for the sake of your sanity and for my blood pressure I shall not.

What can be done to try and defeat this vessel for hatred and horse-manure-journalism?

Here is a list of ten of the companies that sponsor the Weekday Sun where most of the arrests have been so far. Some pressure on these would no doubt hasten its (and it’s Sunday Cousin’s) end. the list of advertisers is from a Guardian article, here.

1. BSkyB £17m – A very pro-Murdoch company so not much hope here…

2. Tesco £16.7m – Recent uproar about workfare has shown Tesco are not too afraid of a U-turn so maybe a chance here
