READ ALL ABOUT IT! The author of the smash hit 52 Times Britain was a Bellend presents the ultimate unofficial history of Britain’s biggest selling newspaper, the Sun (and succinctly gives his opinions on what that says about us), covering its treatment of everyone from the Royal Family to the LGBTQ+ community, women, people of colour, immigrants, politicians and celebrities.
Through reviewing 99 of the paper’s headlines since its inception in 1964, Twitter hero James Felton tracks the biggest events that have happened in modern Britain and showcases the grizzly evolution of our present-day society, aiming to answer the age-old question: ‘Does media reflect – or manipulate – who we are?’ Featuring illustrations throughout and reviews of headlines including:
– ‘It’s the Sun wot won it’ after the paper claimed they swung the 1992 election in the Conservatives’ favour
– ‘Would You Let This Man Near Your Daughter’ regarding the poet Benjamin Zephaniah
– ‘Are we being run by a gay Mafia?’ and many other stories regarding the gay community
– And ‘There are no virgins in Essex (and that’s official)’.
Not included: a blindfold – we advise reading through your fingers instead.
