An emotive subject but don't think its one our council should be bothered about. By all means don't buy the paper if you don't want to.
Wirral council want to join campaign to stop retailers selling it.

Talk about the kettle calling the pot black.

Wirral Council who have a record of doing all sorts of bad things are going way beyond their remit. They should spend time getting their own house in order first!

Emotive indeed - but pretty sure that is not within the Council's remit to ban a newspaper - what ever your views we do have freedom of speech and this sounds a bit like censorship.

Maybe they should focus their resources on what the council should do: getting children's services right, fixing potholes etc etc etc

Spot on DD, I am not a footie fan, but have never bought the sun before or since Hillsborough,it was a disgusting attack not just on football fans but on the honesty and integrity of Merseysiders as a whole, the same as gotcha the sinking of the Belgrano, but yes WBC needs to take a good deep look at itself first.

Pretty ridiculous , hey? Neither have I ever bought the Sun but that was my choice and nothing to do with Hillsborough. No one should ever be allowed to dictate choice by deliberately removing something . It would be pure and simple bullying as there is no law to justify such a campaign.

This move indicates that they are now being manipulated by Liverpool Council, and I would consider that to be a very serious problem arsing.

There is so much 'hate' that flows out of Liverpool. Unless they use this hate to mark another score on their blackboard, they are never happy.

I hope Wirral isn't going the same way. It will be our unnecessary loss.

If people in the area do not buy The Sun, the local message to the shops and publishers will be clear. I sympathise with the strength of feeling the issue still evokes, but I do not believe it is any business of the Council's to attempt to influence retailers over what they can and cannot sell.

Not a Freudian slip, Venice an indication that Wirral's Merger with Liverpool Council could have greater repercussions with the influence and direction coming from Liverpool.

i'm in two minds about this, i completely back the banning of the S*n for several reasons, not just Hillsborough but then again the freedom of speech dilemma does come into play. If someone decides that they want to buy the sun then i don't particularly want to speak to them, so i think if we do let people buy it, we can then easily identify those of society!

Why now? This campaign should have happened the day after their infamous "The Truth" issue.

I see they have gone and done it granny, I have never liked the paper but every one should have the right to choose which newspaper they wish to read, I used to buy it for my mother in law, and cringed every time I went to pay for it, I think she did the bingo thing in it.
