Harman turns fire on Sun decision

Harman said Labour was 'angry' at The Sun's decision

Harriet Harman has said Labour "won't be bullied" after the Sun said it would not back Labour at the next election.

Labour's deputy leader said her party was "angry" at the paper's decision to desert it, but urged members to use the move to inspire them to victory.

This obviously has them more rattled than anything of substance. Or, do they know the Sun represents the view of the majority of people.

Harriet, I'll give you 20-1.

knel, they are like kids.

They've spent the last few years p1ssing the general public off, making lying an art form, and the Sun is 'wrong'. They are somehow surprised and the injured party.

I think the Sun is basically reflecting the mood (and won't want to back a loser).

of course they are mad.

i think it was alan johnson who said it was the voters who decided elections, not newspapers. unfortunately the voters mostly make their mind up via media outlets. duh.

They have always seemed somewhat delusional. But I now think they are actually certifiable.

The socialist mindset is not healthy IMO.

They've handled this apallingly. Instead of looking dignified and above all that they've basically gone at it like spoilt kids. Turning on Murdoch personally just isn't very smart at all. Very, very rattled.

And of all people to send in on the day after they choose Harriet. wtf.

Had it their own way so long now they really can't handle things going against them. This could actually be a spectacular collapse. I am clearing my diary around May and stocking up with coffee because I don't want to miss a moment of this.

Sh!tting themselves.

I really have no sympathy for the Labour party who had the chance to do good things, but allowed a cabal of self-serving, corrupt barstewards to take over the party. Far from being a party of fairness and social justice, they have ruined communities, encouraged suspicion, and the 'I deserve it' attitude, and though debt and financial incompetence buggered the next couple of generations.

It's all very well a Trade Unionist ripping up the Sun, yet this week we had Trade Union leaders, supposedly representing the working man, bemoaning the lack of loans to buy overpriced houses ('saving' the property market). They just don't get it. Over-priced houses and the associated debt have crippled the country and turned our heads from genuine productive endeavour.

Either we become self-sufficient (protecting the economy) or we compete globally on global terms. Having 6x salary overpriced houses does not help one bit.

It doesn't matter which country, the Labour Movement (more like a bowel movement actually) always does the same.

Fairness and social justice? They may talk the talk, but they never walk the walk.

I disagreed with him, but Jim Callaghan had integrity. I actually used to feel sorry for him as he sat there with Conference voting for Unilateral Nuclear Disarmament and the like. This lot aren't fit to follow.

PS The sight of Kinnochio and his freeloader wife clapping Broon yesterday was enough to make me lose my dinner.

The Unions should be joining The Sun. What has Labour done for workers exactly? Except ensure their jobs are either offshored or simply destroyed by the consequences of the credit excesses which were created by Brown.

the hall was nearly empty.

I noticed that as well. They are now unable even to stage manage their own rally. The hall was similarly empty on the opening day. It seems even the comrades hard core activists are losing heart. Good. It is the beginning of what they deserve for what they have done to the country.

I could not agree more..........socialists one year, hey presto corrupt sinecured Eurocrat hypocrites the next...........

I personally am going to enjoy the slow painful death of Liebour in every detail. It is cold comfort for the disgraceful legacy they have left our country but some comfort nevertheless.

That really is quite pathetic. They didn't "desert" them . Up until 12 years ago the Sun mostly backed the Conservatives. I don't vote Conservative but I don't remember them bleating about the Sun "deserting" them in 1997. Did the Sun form some sort of written alliance with Labour always to support them for eternity from 1997. I was really surprised the Sun backed Labour at the last elaction.

As for that moron Tony Woodley ripping up the Sun. Another really pathetic and childish gesture in front of a load of empty seats. Ah wibble wibble wibble.

Good riddance to the worst government I have ever known. What a bunch of sad losers.

:lol: the fact the party acts like this over a tabloid rag further re-enforces how incompetent they all are.

They again show us that they value headlines and looking good over actual competent governance.

Any good party would just ignore the Sun's latest move - at most a "oh, we have no real feelings on the matter" reply - it might be a well read rag but it's still just a rag.

It's a RED rag, and they are the bulls! Maybe The Sun should consider changing their colour to blue why they're at it. It kinda sends out the wrong signal.

It shows how split the part is that some are saying it's only a newspaper, and others are really angry about it. Anyone would thing they are really desperate, and this is the last straw for them! Talk about throwing toys out of the pram :lol:
