I do understand the bitterness toward the Sun but I can tell you the three people who wrote and took photos for this piece are decent people ...one is my wife!

Of course I cant speak for the rest of the staff. Most, if not all, were probably still at school when those lies were published.

I think the controversy surrounding Kelvin McKenzie's story yesterday shows that nothing has changed at "The Scum"! Still printing racist and hate filled lies

I am really pleased that your story got published and I know you're a good guy just wish it was for a different paper that's all.

Good read, nice one man. Never knew Rod Stewart was a model train enthusiast. This article is quite interesting.

Good effort mate, though I'm firmly in the 'won't touch the s*n' category. Pathetic excuse for a rag.
