London hots up as “The Sun” comes out…

By February 12, 2008News

Rumour has it that Neil Kinnock was none too impressed when he saw his head superimposed in a lightbulb the front page of the nations’ favourite tabloid on a certain Thursday morning in 1992. For any Boriswatchers too young to remember the fateful Friday morning that followed, many an expletive echoed around the breakfast tables of Britain, as a somewhat surprised nation woke up to a fourth tory term.

Whilst London soaked up some surprise February hot weather this morning, the Sun served up this spendid little spread on Bozza’s initiative to sort out injured servicemen with free travel entitlements. Not only a fantastic way of saying “thank you”, perhaps a useful pointer that a certain red-top won’t be supporting a certain red-Ken?

The (rather longwinded by The Sun’s standards but also rather to the point) headline that riled Kinnock was “If Kinnock wins today will the last person to leave Britain please turn out the lights?” Can any Boriswatchers suggest a suitable headline for May 1st? Are there any photoshoppers can rival the infamous lightbulb illustration? We’d love to hear from you, in the comments below or by email – get scribbling!
