Stop The Sport being sold as a Newspaper

10% of pre-teen kids addicted to Porn (NSPCC)
90% of mainstream Porn shows Violence against Women

The Sport newspaper is made up almost entirely of graphic ads for the porn and sex industry and pages and pages of 'glamour' shots (young G-stringed women in pornographic poses). This is interspersed with stories of women being murdered, raped by 'sex beasts' or 'sex romps' of teachers with teenage pupils. Why is it sold as a newspaper?

We call on:

Our MPs to take measures to ensure it is sold on the top shelf only and take action more widely on the continued objectification of women and girls by the British media and popular culture which flies in the face of all policies on reducing violence against women and girls and presents a serious issue of child protection.


Retail Regulators like the NFRN (National Federation of Newsagents) to issue new guidelines to retailers to sell The Sport on the top shelf only.


The Metropolitan Police to re-launch their initiative calling on all newspaper publishers to stop publishing sex/porn industry ads because of their links with coercion and trafficking and in addition to view this as a matter of child protection.


David Sullivan, owner of both The Sport and West Ham Football Club – to promote family sport (football) not women as sport (The Sport).

This petition will be delivered to:
  • Our MPs
