The tactic of Britain's highest circulation daily tabloid is to cap other tabloids with loud and populist headlines. The Sun is known for its rightwing, anti-Europe and often anti-German stance. In the elections in 1997, 2001 and 2005 it backed Tony Blair and Labour. In 2016 it threw its weight behind Brexit. It has been struggling with a dramitic decline in readers since 2008.
