The Sun, in its usual helpful fashion, has kindly provided a handy “cut out and keep” guide to a what a terrorist looks like, lest perchance you should see one in the High Street when you’re out and about Christmas shopping. (Munguin is fond of Nuit St Georges 2012, by the way!)
Not surprisingly, given its source, it was a rather over-simplified guide.
Like so much of the Sun’s coverage, it left out great chunks of relevant material. Y’know, the kind of material that doesn’t match the Sun’s right wing, xenophobic, nationalist agenda. Fortunately, a Twitter friend of mine, Aamer Anwar, put up the above picture and captioned it: “So whilst the Sun does a ‘helpful’ cut out & keep terrorist guide they miss out Jo Cox’s Nazi killer”.
Odd that, we thought!
So in an effort to better educate the public, we decided to help spread it around a bit more. After all, you never know who you’re going to bang into in the darker reaches of Auchtermuchty High Street when you’re searching for that special bottle of ‘Nuit’!
Although the Sun’s circulation figures are on a downward trajectory, they do still have more readers than Munguin’s Republic. So, as we like to do what we can in our own way, can we ask you to help by spreading it around on your social media (with credit to Mr Anwar).
