The Setting Sun, The Southern Sun

Neither The Sun nor The Times may consider Hillsborough worth mentioning, but The Guardian, for all its many and increasing faults, finds the room for David Conn's brilliant, devastating essay.

For reasons too numerous to list, I have never understood why anyone in or from the North read The Sun. Its sensibility is entirely Southern. It is not that everyone from the South is like that. But everyone like that is from the South.
