Mandelson attacks 'crude' Sun coverage


Bereaved mother Jacqui Janes has said she accepts Gordon Brown's apology for mistakes made in a letter of condolence about her son's death in Afghanistan.

Asked about the Sun's coverage of the story, Lord Mandelson told Today presenter James Naughtie that "if you read the Sun you'd think that the enemy, that our brave troops on the ground are fighting, is the British government".
