Congratulations to Lucy-Anne Holmes and the team.
Not only will kids no longer have to deal with the confusion and consequences of a newspaper objectifying the female body on a daily basis, but they can see that even the most powerful institutions can be brought down with hard work, unity and most importantly, persistence.
This is a huge day. For all of us.

Dear The Sun,
You know that embarrassing and disturbingly inappropriate uncle who occasionally turns up to weddings in a flash new suit? The one who gets horribly pissed and starts grinding away on some hapless, unsuspecting female, showering her with spittle as he bangs on about what a mover and shaker he was in the 80’s, getting louder and louder until the bouncers politely ask him to leave, at which point he throws a punch, falls to the ground and is carried out?
That’s you. Please stop.
Us. Great Britain.
