Sick of The Sun: Voters burn Tory papers on rainy polling day

This shows the strength of feeling against the Tory-backing rags – and is also quite funny:

Tory-backing newspapers are being bulk bought and burnt or binned in an apparent protest at their criticism of Jeremy Corbyn.

The Sun, the Daily Mail and the Daily Express were targeted on the day Britons head to the polls, with videos showing people hiding the newspapers behind cartons of milk in the supermarket or buying and setting fire to them.

Photos posted on Twitter showed some had bought dozens of copies

    Huge turnout at our local polling station. Never seen so many people there before. Most wanting change. Dare I build up my hopes?

      Yes, but the point is to make them unavailable so they can’t spread their poison among the gullible.

    Why buy them??? Just hide them under the mirror! Sun readers are too stupid to find them there! !! ? jc4pm

    Outrage at Right Wing Newspapers increases their profits by a huge margin when sales were really going downwards anyway, now every right wing news outlet thinks people are looking for the truth, hahahahahaha, way to go guys (My Opinion).

    Better to buy one copy of each
    List all the advertisers
    Start a campaign to boycott them
    Start a petition to the full list asking them to stop advertising in these rags.

    The same goes for their TV vchannels.

      Hasn’t that already been done? ‘Stop funding hate’ or somesuch?

    So, the biggest losers are the Mail, Express and Sun. Vicious, lying, and impotent in the face of a canny young population who, thanks to social media, knows ambrosia from horse manure
