the-sauce.org: Sun Burn

THE EVIL Sun front page showing NUM leader Arthur Scargill apparently giving a Nazi salute under the headline "Mine Fuhrer" has been revealed for the first time.

The-sauce.org has secured a world exclusive from a former mole at the News International printing plant in London's Bouverie Street.

The leak comes 25 years to the day after the hard-right tabloid first tried to tar the Marxist union leader as a Nazi.

The Sun front page never made the light of day.

Union members at the printers refused to publish the filthy slur and instead humiliated bullying editor Kelvin McKenzie.

They publicly shamed him by running across the splash: "Members of all The Sun production chapels refused to handle the Arthur Scargill picture and major headline on our lead story.

"The Sun has decided, reluctantly, to print the paper without either."

It was May 1984 and the height of the historic miners' strike.

Sun owner Rupert Murdoch wanted to thank PM Margaret Thatcher for smashing the Monopolies Commission so the foreigner could buy four British newspapers.

At the same time, the print unions were showing striking miners around the presses - and raising cash to fund the industrial action.

The printers knew if the miners lost they would be next.

SHOCK
Olly Duke, 57, worked at The Sun's art desk making up pages when his union "comrades" blocked the Hitler front page.

He was a member of the NUJ and the hard-left Socialist Workers' Party. He would have screaming rows with the editor.

Yesterday, from his home in the south of France, he told the-sauce.org: "The picture came through John Brown of the National Geographic Association and he refused to touch it.

"Arthur was waving to someone - there was no salute. A huge shock wave went through the offices when we stopped the page. We just wound not set that headline."Hard to imagine now, but very believable in Thatchers UK.

Secondly, there is an upwards trend of people going into business
for themselves. I thought it would be helpful to look at the actual upfront costs,
as well as ongoing costs, for starting a Mary Kay home business.
There was an agenda, and my job, as Sergeant at Arms, was to make sure it
was followed, and that we were finished in a reasonable amount of time.

Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally, it seems as though you relied on the video to make
your point. You definitely know what youre talking about, why
waste your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you
could be giving us something enlightening to read?

With havin so much content do you ever run into any
problems of plagorism or copyright violation? My blog has a lot of unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it looks like a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my agreement. Do you know any techniques to help prevent content from being stolen? I'd truly appreciate it.
