BhlgFWZIYAAwsex.jpg-largeI’d refuse to sell this edition of The Sun newspaper if I was a newsagent in the UK. The headline suggests that the chiefs of the British Labour Party say it’s okay to have sex with 10 year olds.

One now ex labour minister was named in a 1976 press release about an age of consent discussion.

News is alone in its depiction of this story.   Check out the report at The Huffington Post.

This is It’s typical of some stories published by News Corp. in Australia – distorting and or time-shifting facts to serve their own commercial agenda. It’s disgusting. One can only hope that one day people spending money on titles that publish misinformation stop doing this. We deserve better.
