Roger Alton: Sun no longer supports Tories because of Leveson
The hideous and dreadful Roger Alton, who is paraded as the executive editor of The Times, revealed on Sky News' excellent newspaper review show tonight that The Sun no longer supports the Government because of Leveson. In other words, a highly paid employee of Rupert Murdoch was prepared to state publicly that Murdoch's Sun is not appalled by the welfare cuts or the pension cuts or the state persecution of the disabled or the fact that this nation is currently run by a bunch of privileged, patronising plutocrat bastards - but simply because the Government has failed to block an inquiry into the practices and ethics of newspapers, starting with Murdoch's News of the World. I suppose we should be grateful to Alton for his honesty. But I suspect the truth just slipped out, like a wet stool after a rhubarb pie indulgence.
