Psst! Wanna buy some medals?

Well. When I accepted the invite to become an Editor, I didn't expect my first proper post to involve the BNP (I do not want to link to them, but I'm sure you can find them without my help).

The Sun:
BNP flog fake Victoria Cross

THE British National Party is selling replica Victoria Crosses to fund extremism, The Sun can reveal.

In a breach of strict protocol, the far-right outfit is hawking life-size replicas of the nation’s highest award for bravery along with its famous scarlet ribbon for £12.


The BNP:
The Sun Newspaper Betrays Britain’s War Dead by Selling Nazi Propaganda and Memorabilia

Only a day after the Sun tried to smear the BNP for selling replica Victoria Crosses, we can today show how the Sun sells the most extreme anti-Semitic Nazi propaganda movie, “The Eternal Jew” and assorted Nazi medals and memorabilia, exposing that paper’s supposed “pro-British” stance as a hoax.


...by advertising Victoria Crosses, amongst other things.
