Liverpool City Council has approved a move to completely ban the S*n newspaper from the city.
The infamous rag has never been forgiven for the way they reported the events of the Hillsborough tragedy in 1989.
According to the BBC, a motion was out forward at a council meeting on Wednesday which called for a total ban on vendors and shops selling the paper.
Labour councillor Mary Rasmussen was behind the move.
“Contrary to the facts, The S*n published a front page story with the banner headline ‘The Truth’ which contained blatant lies,” she said.
“For this reason we call on all retailers and vendors of newspapers in Liverpool to stop selling The S*n,” said the motion, which recognised the efforts of the campaign group Total Eclipse of the S*n to “rid” the city of the newspaper.”
The motion won unanimous backing.
The S*n refused to comments on the vote, but some groups – especially the Society of Editors, which represents about 400 media outlets – said the move was stretching towards censorship. “That is what happens in dictatorships and banana republics,” they said.
Emily Heywood of the Total Eclipse of the S*n group said the move was necessary because some new newsagents had started selling it again.
