I personally consider The Sun’s ‘Shop a Yob’ campaign to be obscene.

I also found it interesting that they’ve found the perfect poster child in Michael Carroll.

I bet I can name someone richer than Michael who does more damage to society. On a daily basis.

You should read up on Sun editor Rebekah Wade a bit, too. A dangerous woman in a very influential position.

‘Shop a Yob’ angered me so much that I simply had to make the following posters as therapy.

UPDATE (30th Oct 2003) – The Sun’s Shop a Yob campaign is not only disgraceful, it’s a shameless rip-off.

Hmm. Hard to know who to root for on this one.

Andrew Parkes is the editor of News Shopper, which has been running its own Shop a Yob campaign for almost two years, and he had this to say: “If The Sun is serious about joining with us in our fight to identify and shame the scum of our society then I welcome them.”
