The Sun should be ashamed

I'm sure there will be a lot of comment about the phone call between Gordon Brown and Mrs Janes which has been published today.

Having listened to the call, an uncomfortable experience, I actually think Gordon Brown handled the call about as well as could be expected in the circumstances.

He apologised, took a lot of flak from a very distraught Mrs Janes, but remained calm throughout.

Whether the Sun should have published a private phone call is open to debate. I can see arguments both ways.

However they should be thoroughly ashamed that they deem it appropriate to precede the recording with an ad for a Family Guy DVD which includes a joke about horse sperm and follow it with an ad for the Bruno DVD.
