Sun readers don’t want ‘Tory fanzine’, says Mandelson

Author: By Alan Jones, Press Association

The Business Secretary seemed relaxed about the announcement from the top
selling tabloid that they were no longer supporting Labour.

Lord Mandelson, speaking in Brighton to publicise tomorrow’s increase in the
national minimum wage, said: “The proprietor might have changed his mind but
I don’t think the readers want The Sun to set on New Labour.

“The last thing Sun readers want is to see their newspaper turned into a Tory
fanzine. They want a newspaper, not a propaganda sheet.”

Derek Simpson, joint leader of Unite, who accompanied Lord Mandelson to a
hotel in Brighton for the minimum wage launch, said he wasn’t surprised by
The Sun’s announcement today.

“Gordon Brown sounded more like a Labour Prime Minister than ever during his
speech to the conference yesterday and obviously The Sun couldn’t stomach it.

“This is about as rare as the sun coming up in the morning.”
