Choon Choosday: Billy Bragg – Never Buy The Sun

18 April, 2017

Saturday was the 28th anniversary of the Hillsborough disaster. I’ve discussed the events of the day and the subsequent quest for truth and justice at length elsewhere, so I won’t re-tread that ground again now but it is extraordinary timing for Kelvin MacKenzie to decide to insult the people of Liverpool this weekend. Admission – I have to disclose here that I haven’t read the column first hand however, as it has been taken down. But he’s a dispicable man, writing for (and previously – at the time of Hillsbourough – editing) a dispicable paper.

This song was written when The Sun’s sister paper was forced to close after its staff were found to have, amongst other things, hacked into voicemails of celebrities and news-worthy figures in order to dig up gossip. Bragg reminded us then that scousers never buy The Sun following the lies that MaccKenzie printed (under a banner headline “The Truth”) and it seems appropriate to play it again now.

Never Buy The Sun.
