Currently support Labour.
Oppose war in Iraq. In 2004, The Mirror, under then editor Piers Morgan, published hoax photographs of UK soldiers abusing Iraqi detainees. Used to be strongly against the Iraq invasion but since Morgan’s incident, has toned down it’s public campaigning. Supports the families of troops currently in Iraq.
Supports today’s youth, as they are a large percentage of sales. Has a lot of gossip on celebrities and is generally entertainment orientated rather than simply news driven.
