Boycott News International Group
In January the Sun columnist, Rod Liddle, wrote an article entitled: 'Pretend disabled' really ARE sick' – in which he writes: "My New Year's resolution for 2012 was to become disabled. Nothing too serious, maybe just a bit of bad back or one of those newly invented illnesses, which makes you a bit peaky for decades - fibromyalgia, or M.E." Mr Liddle knowingly chooses his words to generate the greatest provocation and pain. Angry outrage or even measured responses are all signs of success to him because it sells newspapers. If you disagree with Mr Liddle, one way to get his employers attention is not to purchase any more newspapers from the News International Group (The Times, The Sun or The Sunday Times) until he resigns, or is sacked.
UK Fibromyalgia has also made an official complaint to the Press Council under the Editors’ Code of Practice- Clause 1 (Accuracy).
