Disadvantages: Some may not like Page 3
I am not much of a newspaper fan in fact I never buy the paper but when my hubby does I like to have his sloppy seconds at reading it.
His first choice is always the Sun and it is a paper that I have always remembered too from when I was a kid and it is cheap at just 20p! And also covers all areas from Sport, Celebrity and of course the news!
Some people slate The Sun, saying it is low class and rubbish. But I have a friend who buys the Guardian and just because you buy a huge paper that is difficult to read and that won't fit through most letter boxes does not make you more intelligent then someone reading the Sun, it just means you want to appear and look smarter when you are on the train on the way to work.
Obviously the front page covers the most interesting and important news but you find with the sun that you will more than likely find Jordan taking the front page up with her antics. Although when there is really serious news they do report on this.
You will also notice they have a bit of sport on the front page, this paper features sport a lot from Football to Cricket.
The sun covers everything, with the page 3 being a topless woman, Now I must say this is a little dated and although it is some eye candy to the men and there is nothing wrong with it, I don't particularly want to see a woman with her tits out as soon as I open the paper, I am not offended and think it must be great for the guys! Especially teenage boys but for a 28 year old woman I just find it a little unnecessary.
If you are into your celeb gossip then The Sun has a lot of dirt on the likes of Jordan aka Katie Price and lots of other celebrities, If those stories are real I don't know but these people need to make news so there is always some drama going on.
There are lot and lots of adverts scattered all over the pages of the sun, pretty much on every page!
I don't know how often this pull out is in the paper, I am guessing every Monday, Although today there is a Super Goals Pullout which gives you all the football highlights and pictures of goals, Not my sort of thing but must be good for those who enjoy their footy!
Near the back of the paper you will find some virals, pictures that people have sent in one is "28 days later" royal Mail which I thought was quite appropriate considering we have a Royal Mail strike on!
Mystic Meg does her horoscopes in the paper, although they are very generalised and I don't believe in that sort of thing I always like to have a read when I have the paper.
Dear Deirdre is another feature of the paper, it's a problem page where people write in, I don't know if these are authentic or if the sun is just making them up but one of the problems someone has took the trouble to write in is:-
I'm engaged but can't give up my lesbian flings and also I am worried that my boyfriend will take off my padded bra and realise my boobs are not as big as they look!
Quite funny reading really, like anyone would take the bother of writing in
***Crosswords and Puzzles***
You will also find a couple of crosswords and puzzles too near the back of the paper; you can also win from these if you don't mind paying the premium price to call to enter. But if you are into your crosswords or just need something to do, it could pass the time quite nicely!
You can write into the Sun and express your reviews on certain subjects; the top letter gets £50. Today's winning top letter is about Nick Griffin.
Right at the back of the paper is where you will find all the sport news, and there is tons of adverts before you get to this part of the paper
I feel for 20p you get a good deal, this paper has something for everyone and covers news topics thoroughly in plain English that anyone can understand without trying to be something it is not. It is put together well and what can you buy for 20p these days?
Go buy one next time you are waiting for your train, bus etc!
Summary: Good Value for just 20p!
