Thread Name: Lyr Add: Never Buy the Sun (Billy Bragg)
Subject: Lyr Add: Billy Bragg: Never Buy the Sun
Never Buy the Sun, was written in the wake of the News of the World hacking scandal.
It also refers to the Sun's sales in Liverpool, which never recovered after its coverage of the 1989 Hillsborough stadium disaster
Billy Bragg, who is appearing at the Tolpuddle Martyrs Trade Union Festival in Dorset on Sunday 17th July, said
"Over the past few years, any expression of social solidarity has been scorned - from the new activism of the climate camps and UK Uncut to the more traditional campaigns of the unions - but by sticking to their guns, the people of Liverpool have been vindicated in their principled stand against News International."
