The Sun's Brexit front page has sparked angry reactions
It's bloody hard to make a proper decision on whether to stay in the EU or whether to leave.
There's so much bullshit flying about from both the Brexit and Remain camps that how's anyone supposed to make an informed decision?
There's some pretty grim characters being rolled out on both sides, saying anything from the 'EU causes cancer' to 'Vote Remain or we'll start killing kittens' to get people to vote a certain way. Anyone else get the feeling it's out of pure self interest rather than the future of the British people?
Whether you're 'Remain' or you're 'Leave' people on Twitter reckon this Sun front page will probably help make up your mind about the big EU Referendum vote for the future of the country.
The Sun has waded into the fight on the side of the Brexit calling for its readers to 'BeLEAVE in Britain' (geddit?) on June 23.
Tomorrow's front page. We're backing Brexit - and here's why: https://t.co/3dDiHvwP1E pic.twitter.com/k0Xl55MXZf

For some people this is a clear signal that the right and proper decision is to vote the opposite way to Rupert Murdoch's newspaper.
With people citing phone hacking, the Hillsborough smears and any other controversies they could think of as evidence of the paper's wayward moral compass on important issues...
I can not be associated with The Sun newspaper and neither should you esp people of Liverpool therefore #VoteRemain #StrongerIn

Murdoch's right. We've had enough of being told what to do by unelected, unaccountable, powerful foreigners. Oh. pic.twitter.com/MiApd1p6A3

The Sun supporting #Brexit makes it even more laughable. Media forcing what they want through blatant misinformation. Standard UK media.

So I'm supposed to be swayed by a newspaper that has crawled on its stomach in the gutter since Hillsborough. Great news for Remain.

@SheikhZammo I was going to back Brexit too but now the Sun backs leave it is obviously the wrong decision.....#switching

But for the dozens of people who were sticking the boot in on the Sun, there were just as many who sided with the paper.
And other who remembered the Sun usually backs the winning horse...
What will worry @David_Cameron & Remain is @rupertmurdoch does not typically back the loser - & this is his call pic.twitter.com/VRFqfmGj97

I am firmly for out, but being on the same side as the Sun??? For the record I'm not devious, lying, or duplicitous! https://t.co/GFgjuczlVE

Wonderful! Delighted to see broadcasts which say we're not fooled by the vicious lies and scaremongering of the Remain camp. #Brexit
