Free Sun Can't Post or

Just had a special free edition put through my door, England only I presume as it mostly relates to the World Cup. Not read a copy of the Sun since I was about 12. On page three (no topless young lady) it declares the nation has voted Kelly Brook is the women they would most like to s--g of something of that ilk. What a waste of a rainforest the paper I mean, no disrespect to Miss Brook who is 34 and comes from Rochester. Winston Churchill (local lad) has been voted greatest ever English person followed by Brunel. There is also a picture of the bloke from Gavin & Stacey with his face painted with a Cross of Saint George. A copy of the Beano would have been more useful and entertaining.

I thought about Liverpool when my copy dropped on the mat this morning. Luckily we are revarnishing some photo frames this weekend so handily the paper will be of some use

None. The ink would come off. Unsure

Sadly I didn't get my copy. But then again, I live in a tower block where 95% of the residents don't have English as a first language, so perhaps they didn't think it was worth it.

On the plus side, I do get a lovely free newspaper every week from Tower Hamlets council saying how wonderful the mayor is. In fairness, it is very useful, but not for the reason it was intended.

It looks as though North London missed out. Can anyone throw light on how and why the Sun decided to give free copies to certain parts of the country and not others?

I'd suggest a large proportion of that publications readership lacks exactly that. Unsure

Certain postal workers refused to deliver it, while I think the Sun didn't even attempt to try deliveries in the Liverpool area. As for missing out, you weren't missing much, believe me. I read one article right to the end of its first paragraph, before putting it in my recycling pile.

The Sun is good for whiling away 10-15 minutes in the queue at the barbers.

Other than that, it's a waste of paper.

Don't like going without a read of a quality broadsheet every day, especially at the weekend.

Sent my copy of the putrid rag straight back, unread to:

Made use of the free bottle of Coke Zero thanks to the voucher on page 4 within an hour of picking the paper up from doormat. Got another 6 vouchers from people who have handed them to me, so saves a bit of cash.

From the BBC's article about it:

A Conservative Party source described Mr Miliband's apology as an "extraordinary gaffe" that was "proof that Ed Miliband is a weak leader who lacks moral conviction".

http://www.bbc.co.uk/...uk-politics-27829958

Hmmm. Seeing as David Cameron and Nick Clegg also posed with the paper, don't think anyone can claim any moral high ground here.
