I'm sure its a misquote, but surely one which should be fairly easy to get right? I don't read the sun so can't comment on the frequency of errors, but judging by posts on here, on comments by other people who read it and on the times when I have flicked through it, I think they rite preety godd
How can we expect the Nationals to get it right when you see the amount of glaring errors in the Dockyard Dandy/Skate times! Now seeing has they operate from inside HMS Nelson they should have no excuses!!
It takes 12 established trees to make one tonne of newsprint, which is enough to print 14,000 editions of an average-size tabloid. That means a daily usage of newsprint of a little over 107 tonnes. Which, in turn, means the felling of 1,284 trees.
"No doubt because they all look like Soldier's, if your dressed in combats the average civie is going to think thats what you are!!"
'Fraid that's how it is...khaki is khaki is khaki.......though I read in the Sunday Times yesterday that Old Gordie is supporting the reinstatement of the annual military tournaments....televised ...to upgrade the support and understanding of the military by civilians....can't be a bad thing.
As for 'The Sun'- c'mon guys....it's official average reading age is 6 years old, that's been established for a long time. Hence the simplicity of language etc.
Best to focus on whether it offers an all-round supportive tone of the Forces or not...that's what really counts at the moment in Britain.....getting that back onto some sort of solid footing.
Slowly, slowly, catchy civvie.
I only read The Sun once a few weeks ago (my parents being avid Telegraph groupies) and it made me smile. I love the way it tries to juice up the stories by making them sound more like gossip! I was reading the Elisabeth Fritzl story and half expecting the writer to drop in: "She was well fit before she went in there an' now she's all albino and sh*t".
It's a tabloid....therefore has a morale duty to write bullshit. Juicing it up is what gets the masses going.....unless they have the savvy to think laterally.
Considering we are breeding a nation of turkey-twizzler eating, obese text-writing, illiterate benefit-muching hoodies - I doubt it.
But hey - there's at least ONE Telegraph reader among us at least- and I like the Guardian and Times, or anything on a train that's free and remotely sensible......hope springs eternal ...and at least the crosswords are easy-peesy
