Sir: If The Sun's claim to be 30 is to be believed ("The true reflection of modern Britain", 18 November), then Michael Leapman either can't count or is branding us all liars.

My recollection is that The Sun first rose in about 1965, as a Labour Party supporter in place of the then defunct Daily Herald, and had a photo on its front page of a woman giving birth (somewhat close to the mark in the mid-Sixties). Or maybe they are just counting years AM (After Murdoch)?
